    FedEx Seeks to Show It’s Good Guy in Internet Drug Crackdown - Bloomberg

    FedEx Corp. says government claims that it conspires with illegal online pharmacies don’t tell the whole story: Especially the part about how the company helps drive those websites out of business.

    As a drug-trafficking and money-laundering case heads toward trial, with the potential for almost $1 billion in fines, the parcel-shipping service is trying to show it’s being punished after doing the right thing.

    In 2002, 12 years before FedEx was accused of scheming with “rogue” online drugstores to deliver controlled substances to dealers and addicts, it was assisting federal agencies with investigations of pill purveyors, the company said.
