WSJ Discovers Spammed Enlargement Pills Contaminated With Crap

from the quite-literally dept

Back in June we wrote about some of the details behind a typical penis pill spam scam operation, where it was (in case you hadn’t realized) clearly determined that the pills didn’t do a damn thing and were made up of random ingredients. Not to be outdone, the Wall Street Journal is now on the case, and picked up a few of these pills themselves to have them “analyzed”, to see what their ingredients really held. Interesting to note the types of stories the financial community is interested in these days… Turns out, that along with some of the advertised ingredients the pills turned up “significant levels of E. coli, yeast, mold, lead and pesticide residues.” If that doesn’t get the point across, there’s this lovely quote from the head of the infectious-diseases department at the University of Maryland: “I think it’s safe to say it has heavy fecal contamination.” So, to top off the fact that these folks are spamming people every day with a scam operation that seems to catch morons by the thousands, the pills are also filled with shit (quite literally). Seems somehow fitting.
