That is 543 of these sites per day over four days — and only for these seven templates.
“The canadian_* templates are clearly the most prevalent and we have traced these back to “GlavMed”, which we believe operates out of the Russian Business Network and is likely tied to the Russian mafia. The GlavMed hosts tend to stay online for no more than a couple of weeks.”

This is an Identity Theft and Credit Card Fraud ring.
NEVER GIVE ANY INFORMATION TO SPAMMERS!
These sites deal with:
– Illegal drug sales (mostly HGH)
– False claims (Verisign, Truste, etc)
– Counterfeit watches (Rolex etc)
– Loans (they resell your information to anyone)

Who knows what these scammers will put in the pills. Recent news reports

logos either do not link back or they link to another scammer site.
Some of the sites also use a false license for prescription sales.
Even the untrained eye can spot the poor photoshopping.
Replica (Counterfeit) watches, pens, purses, and jewelry. They pay a
few bucks and hope your dumb enough to part with a few hundred. Don’t
do it, there is no guarantee what you get will even work and no way to
return the goods. Plus the crooks may even chose your credit card to
buy more domains. See below for links dealing with this subject.
Or as I like to call them Loanz. This spammer will turn around and
sell your information to hundreds of call centers. The end result
is your phone will never stop ringing. These loan shops are no better,
and many times worse, than your local credit union or bank. With the
prevalence of ID theft these days I would never deal over the phone
with a company I did not personally know.
