- Unregistered imported and physician sample purchase
This is the most common strategy. Unregistered imported and physician sample can be illegal but they can be bargained for almost half of their selling price and even lesser.
- Near expiration bargains
Most drug products nearing their ‘birthday’, usually three months before are bargained very cheaply. The term illegal would be applied if these celebrants are sold after their expiration dates.
- Expired medicine sold out…Waste not!
Why throw out an expired tablet when you can still sell it to an unsuspecting customer? This strategy works well especially when the owner doesn’t believe in expiry dates.
