We want to trust that the items we purchase from online merchants will be legitimate, that they will come to us in the condition we expect, and that they will be safe. We want to believe that the flea medication we order for our pets isn’t fake, or that the vitamins we just paid for contain what we expect. That unfortunately is not the case, as the World Health Organization estimates that 10% of medicines available globally are likely counterfeit, with up to 30% being counterfeit in some areas of Asia, Africa and Latin America.
