    I know this is a noob question but this is probably the best place to get answers quickly and I'm confessing to being clueless. I'm willing to do "unethical" things, but not illegal things.
    - I'm guessing that selling Viagra online and promoting online gambling in the usa is illegal. Is that true or false?
    - As a US citizen, would that activity be covered if I managed every aspect of the business offshore? I would still physically be present in the USA but I would remote desktops, offshore webhosting, offshore incorporation, offshore accounts - the full monty.
    - Without any knowledge of the subject, I'm guessing none of that would matter if I am a US citizen selling in the USA and accessing the money in the US, it would still be illegal.

    I think you're right. A trip to an attorney is definitely in order. Going to crank out a quick business plan and see what they have to say. Just have to find out which ones are shady, first.

    Very cool article, the guy got screwed and went through hell but seems to have come back from it well enough. If that happened to me I'd be totally screwed though, since I do not have access to $100k to pay legal fees. As far as this thread, though, I'm pretty sure you can be held accountable for promoting something that is illegal, since you would profit from its sale even if you're not technically selling it. That is why I switched to another program. As far as complaints and the FTC, though, I've recently started using a pseudonym for everything and 100% focused on legal compliance. I'm now hooked up with a different company that is selling Viagra legally outside the US through licensed pharmacies that provide physician consultations and prescriptions. I cannot compete with the viagra sites that do link injections/redirections on .edu sites, and I am not doing email spam, but I can do everything else on BHW (and apparently just 1 xrumer run is all it takes to get listed on Spamhaus.) Once I've got my first mini-net and backlink campaign done with them I'll start looking for similar companies that provide physician consultations and prescriptions in other countries and I will begin cloning my sites using different templates. I should be able to build networks of sites that legally serve different countries. Between those legitimate networks, linkwheels, linkfarm evolution, my special sauce, and xrumer runs, I should do well enough.

    as long as you're sure your product isn't counterfeit or dangerous you'll be fine (if 100% anon). look up what happened to 'smiling bob' the late night penis pill pusher who was selling counterfeit bunk, with an aggressive credit card re-billing policy. they threw the book at him with all the new laws on counterfeit medication.

    if customs opens a package and finds a bunch of mail order viagra, they may confiscate it but that's it. if your supplier is selling fake meds, and somebody has a heart attack and dies then Interpol will make you a priority and come after you.

    i would also recommend stealth shipping, like what marijuana seed vendors do to get their stuff unnoticed through the world postal system

    I use white label sites - the last company I used was amazing, they had custom software that allowed you to build a store, edit the template, change the prices, and either host on their servers or your own. They were as sophisticated as those white labelled casino/poker/betting sites and if white label dating sites were that sophisticated, I'd do that, too. Anyhow, they were in India and sold unauthorized generics which I found out can be deadly and illegal to sell, so I quit that affiliate program and didn't accept payment from them. The one I'm with now is in the EU and is legal/legit, but they don't have the same technological skills. I'm using templates, editing the hell out of them, and then iframing their order entry pages so that they handle all the payment processing, private customer info, and shipping. I have no control over the shipping and have to trust them to comply with the law. But it's my site, my domain, my server, and I'm not only selling their products. Anything even remotely related to the little blue pills is on my site (ie herbs, condoms, ebooks, etc.) and I plan on cloning it when it's complete.

    Go for it. Internet gambling IS NOT ILLEGAL IN THE US. What is illegal is for US financial institutions to process payments to and from gambling sites. Some states have individually made internet gambling illegal but as a whole, the act itself of gambling online is legal.

    I know. That's next on my list of niches to get into. There are so many ways to make money from that niche that a mini-net seems like a no brainer. I think I should set up a corporation just to manage it, too.

    I'm 28....I like to ave sex, usually do it 3 or 4 times a week. So I have been cutting the 100mg pills in half and this gives me 6 extra and works pretty well.

    I have read all the different posts here about buying Viagra Online Kaufen. Is it safe? What site would you recommend? I would like to stock up on 50+ pills. Also are the soft tabs I hear about able to be cut in half?

    What you are doing is illegal unless you are registered to operate a casino online. So yes you need offshore hosting and
    every protection you can think of. Really there are other methods to make decent money without all of the risk.
