Gallant Pharma International Inc. Indicated


August 7, 2013

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Seven arrests have been made in a coordinated operation spanning several states, related to the unsealing of a 17-count indictment and criminal complaint involving Gallant Pharma International Inc., an allegedly unlicensed company that is accused of distributing misbranded prescription drugs from its headquarters in Crystal City, Virginia, and an office in Springfield, Virginia.  The individuals arrested were:

  • Syed “Farhan” Huda, 38, of Arlington, Virginia;
  • Deeba Mallick, 36, of Arlington, Virginia;
  • Anoushirvan R. Sarraf, 47, of Rockville, Maryland;
  • Talib Khan, 42, of Montreal, Canada, and Barbados;
  • Harvey Whitehead, 67, of Troy, Michigan;
  • Lisa Coroniti, 46, of Devon, Pennsylvania; and
  • Robert J. Sparks, 30, of Springfield, Virginia.

Munajj Rochelle, 36, a dual U.S.-Canadian citizen, is currently incarcerated in Montreal, Canada, on unrelated charges.  Arrest warrants have been issued for the remaining three defendants, Robert Wachna of Ottawa, Canada, Mirwaiss Aminzada, 43, of Montreal, Canada.

Neil H. MacBride, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, Antoinette V. Henry, Special Agent in Charge, FDA’s Office of Criminal Investigations, Gary Barksdale, Inspector in Charge of the Washington Division of the United States Postal Inspection Service, and Special Agent in Charge John P. Torres, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Washington, made the announcement after the four defendants arrested in the Eastern District of Virginia – Huda, Mallick, Sarraf, and Sparks – made their initial appearances before Judge John F. Anderson.

According to the 17-count indictment unsealed today, Khan and Huda were principals of Gallant Pharma, which allegedly began illegally importing prescription drugs, including intravenous chemotherapy drugs and injectable cosmetics, into the United States in or around August 2009.  Gallant Pharma represented itself as a “Canadian company” and told potential customers that it sold drugs from Canada.  The indictment alleges, however, that Khan, with the assistance of Huda, Mallick, Aminzada, and others, acquired drugs from other parts of the world, including India, Switzerland, and Turkey. These drugs were allegedly not manufactured and packaged in accordance with FDA requirements and, in some cases, were not approved by the FDA for use in the United States.  The indictment states that Gallant Pharma imported the drugs with the assistance of co-conspirators in Canada and the United Kingdom, including Aminzada, who broke large shipments into many small packages, mislabeled the contents of packages, and addressed deliveries to Dr. Sarraf at his medical practice in McLean, Virginia, in order to lessen scrutiny by Customs and Border Protection.  Initially, Gallant Pharma allegedly operated out of the apartment of Huda and his wife, Mallick, in Crystal City, where Huda is alleged to have served as the day-to-day head of Gallant Pharma in the United States and Mallick had primary responsibility for processing sales invoices and customer payments.  Until June 2013, Gallant Pharma allegedly stored the misbranded drugs at an office in Springfield, Virginia.

According to the indictment, Gallant Pharma was not licensed to distribute prescription drugs in the United States.  Nonetheless, Gallant Pharma is alleged to have sold drugs to doctors, hospitals, and medical practices across the United States, generating more than $8.6 million in revenue since August 2009.

Gallant Pharma allegedly employed a cadre of sales representatives with dedicated sales territories across the United States.

The defendants are charged with the following offenses: conspiracy to commit importation fraud, introduction of misbranded drugs into interstate commerce, unlicensed medical wholesaling, wire fraud, and to defraud the FDA, each of which is punishable by a maximum term of imprisonment of five years; importation contrary to law, which is punishable by a maximum term of imprisonment of twenty years; introduction of misbranded drugs into interstate commerce, which is punishable by a maximum term of imprisonment of three years; unlicensed medical wholesaling, which is punishable by a maximum term of imprisonment of three years; wire fraud, which is punishable by a maximum term of imprisonment of twenty years; and monetary transactions with criminally derived proceeds, which is punishable by a maximum term of imprisonment of ten years.

The investigation was conducted by FDA Office of Criminal Investigations, Drug Enforcement Agency Group 33 Diversion Task Force, Department of Homeland Security Office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the United States Postal Inspection Service, with assistance from the Arlington County Police Department.  Assistant United States Attorneys Lindsay A. Kelly, Alexander T.H. Nguyen, and Ryan K. Dickey are prosecuting the case on behalf of the United States.

Criminal indictments are only charges and not evidence of guilt.  A defendant is presumed to be innocent until and unless proven guilty.

North Carolina AG Warns of Corporate Records Service

Don’t Fall for the Latest Corporate Records Scam

If you own or work for a business, don’t respond to an official looking mailing from scamalerta group called Corporate Records Service.  Businesses across the state have reported getting the letter, which asks you to fill out an annual corporate records form and send $125 to an address in Raleigh by September 4.

The letter includes references to state law on corporate records, which is enforced by the North Carolina Secretary of State.  But the Secretary of State’s Office does not issue letters like the ones sent by Corporate Records Service, nor does the agency collect fees for filing these records.

We’re investigating these misleading letters, and have taken action against a possibly related scam in the past.  In that case, we barred a California company that sent similar mailings from operating in the state and returned $90,000 in checks it had collected to small businesses across North Carolina.

If you receive one of these letters, don’t respond.  Report scams like this one to the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division by calling 1-877-5-NO-SCAM or filing a complaint online at

This message brought to you on behalf of North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper.

The Purpose of this post is to ALERT you that the job you are about to apply for orscamalert may have applied FOR or is CONSIDERING APPLYING FOR is FRAUDULENT. The identities of an individual or a business entity have been stolen along with fund from their bank accounts.

These job postings are an attempt to lure you into accepting and cashing counterfeit checks into your bank accounts. You are being recruited to wire transfer these funds via WESTERN UNION or MONEYGRAM from your bank into a DOMESTIC BANK  or OFFSHORE BANK ACCOUNT.

Extortion Scam Related to Delinquent Payday Loans

Washington, D.C. December 07, 2010

FBI National Press Office (202) 324-3691

The Internet Crime Complaint Center have received many complaints from victims of payday loan telephone collection scams. Callers IC3claim the victim is delinquent in a payday loan and must repay the loan to avoid legal consequences. The callers purport to be representatives of the FBI, Federal Legislative Department, various law firms, or other legitimate-sounding agencies. They claim to be collecting debts for companies such as United Cash Advance, U.S. Cash Advance, U.S. Cash Net, and other Internet check-cashing services.

According to complaints received from the public, the callers have accurate data about victims, including Social Security numbers, dates of birth, addresses, employer information, bank account numbers, and the names and telephone numbers of relatives and friends. How the fraudsters obtained the personal information varies, but in some cases victims have reported they completed online applications for other loans or credit cards before the calls started.

The fraudsters relentlessly call the victim’s home, cell phone, and place of employment. They refuse to provide any details about the alleged payday loans and become abusive when questioned. The callers have threatened victims with legal actions, arrests, and, in some cases, physical violence if they do not pay. In many cases, the callers harass victims’ relatives, friends, and employers.

Some fraudsters have instructed victims to fax a statement agreeing to pay a certain amount, on a specific date, via a pre-paid Visa card. The statement further declares the victim will never dispute the debt.

If you receive these calls, do not follow the caller’s instructions. Rather, you should:

Notify your banking institutions.
Contact the three major credit bureaus and request an alert be put on your file.
Contact your local law enforcement agencies if you feel you are in immediate danger.
File a complaint at

Tips to avoid becoming a victim of this scam:

Never give your Social Security number—or personal information of any kind—over the telephone or online unless you initiate the contact.
Be suspicious of any e-mail with urgent requests for personal financial information. The e-mail may include upsetting or exciting but false statements to get you to react immediately.
Avoid filling out forms in e-mail messages that request personal information.
Ensure that your browser is up-to-date and security patches have been applied.
Check your bank, credit, and debit card statements regularly to make sure that there are no unauthorized transactions. If anything looks suspicious, contact your bank and all card issuers.
When you contact companies, use numbers provided on the back of cards or statements
