Washington DC Pharmacist, Florida Doctor Face Fake Online Pharmacy Charges

A pharmacist operating an online pharmacy in Washington DC has been indicted on fake online pharmacy charges, according to a press release from the FDA. In addition, a Florida-based doctor, has been charged with fulfilling prescriptions for said pharmacy for over 38,000 U.S. residents. Titilayo (Tomi) Akintomide Akinyoyenu, also known as Tommy Akin, was arrested at his home in Bethesda, Maryland, according to the FDA.

The FDA reports that Akin ran a fake online pharmacy, known as Apex Care Pharmacy. Akin allegedly took orders via the Internet, and then shipped prescription medication to customers all over the United States once his co-conspirator Alan Saltzman, signed off on the prescriptions.
