Marketplace challenge:

VIAGRA (sildenafil citrate) tablets is the most counterfeited drug in America, and these counterfeit pills are sold online by thousands of websites posing as legitimate pharmacies. To make things worse, most people who buy from these sites often have no idea they're buying fake, potentially dangerous imitations. They think they're getting the real thing.
