AIDS internet scam warning

24th February 2009

The UK's Medicine and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has cautioned HIV and AIDS patients not to believe the claims of a website which offers them a miracle cure.

The site says a machine is used to cure illness. MHRA director of policy, Shaun Gallagher said: “It would be extremely doubtful that any machine of this kind would have any value in the treatment of HIV/AIDS. All of the evidence suggests that the product does not even exist and that this is simply a scam, being run through an organised crime gang, to take money from vulnerable people.”
