    We have gotten several reports from our members who received PMs from a company selling prescription drugs. What kind of person would target a recovery site to try to sell this kind of thing?
    Too many times that almighty dollar over-rides integrity, decency, and common sense.

    I wish I was suprised at something this pathetic, but I am not at all. Like someone said yesterday, the drug dealers like the money in their bank account much more than they like to see us get better.

    Sad, sad life they live.

    I got spammed with that (and posted about it) 2 days here. Shoulda reported the p!ece of sh!t's "Junior Member" handle, but (and this is embarrassing) I was a 'new guy'... and I wondered if someone was 'feelin' me out' to see if I was full of sh!t. <blush>.

    HEY! I didn't KNOW! LoLoL.

    If I ever get another, I'll forward it straight to admin. Scout's honor.

    What a low life, I am disgusted that someone would target a forum like this to sell prescriptions. There are enough triggers and hurdles to get over in recovery. Places like this are our "safe" place

    That does not shock me to hear about the companies targeting us but it does sicken me to hear. Thanks for being on top of this and caring enough to deal with the situations as they arise.
