Common con tricks

Fake medicine

Fake medicine is a simple trick carried out in the street by two or three culprit(s), who approach the victim trying to sell herbs / pills / medicine by exaggerating their medical value or tempting the victim to buy products as a joint venture in return for potentially huge profits. Needless to say, the medicine turns out to be of very low re-sale or medical value.


  • Do not be tempted by this offer. If you feel unwell, consult a doctor; and
  • Only buy medicine etc. from reputable outlets where you will have some recourse against the supplier if the need arises.
