At any one time there are at least 40 web sites offering to sell the drug Nembutal without the need for a doctor’s prescription. None are known to be reliable.

Not only are they fraudulent but sometimes pretend to be part of genuine right-to-die organization like ERGO or EXIT.

The latest impersonator has stolen the colored banner and logo from ERGO’s web site. They repeat the words “Euthanasia World Directory – Web Site of Hemlock Society Founder Derek Humphry” at the top of their web site.

Another site includes my name “Derek” as a suggestion that I’m involved.

Dr. Philip Nitschke, of Exit International, is an even bigger target for the scammers. Some not only use his name but also his photograph, lifted from his web site.

He has roundly condemned them and warned people extensively.

The scammers usually ask for either $500 or $700 in US dollars to be wired to them via Western Union. They offer liquid Nembutal or Veterinary Nembutal in two bottles, sufficient to end life quickly and painlessly.

A favorite trick of some thieves is to deliver honestly on a couple of orders, gain a good reputation, then when thousands of dollars roll in, fail to respond and

close down the web site. This is known to police as ‘long fraud’. The fraudsters claim to be in all parts of the world, but it is easy to pretend that. They change web site names frequently.

One scam site revels in the name “Glorious End”!

Neither ERGO [www.finalexit.org] nor EXIT [exitinternational.net] has ever sold drugs. All they offer is quality advice. Nor does any member of the World Federation of Right to Die Societies [www.worldrtd.net] sell drugs.
