Grey Market and Beyond

The latest problem with fake goods involves diabetes test strips. It involved a Canadian connection and a Chinese connection. The Canadian says he was assured that the strips were the real thing. The Chinese individual is now supposedly in jail.

When we will learn that if the price seems too good to be true, it probably is.

The public’s indifference to fake CDs and DVDs is a good indicator of our moral state. Then there are the many fake designer items. Fake CSA stickers could lead to fires when substandard electrical gadgets fail. A woman’s death in Victoria has been blamed on pirated anti-anxiety pills. Fake heart pills contributed to four deaths in Ontario.

Why? So someone (be it the middleman, retailer, consumer, or all three) can save a dime.

What was it the Bible says about money, specifically the love of it?

    buying fake pills is just stupid… you don’t put your health at risk to save a couple of bucks
