    UPS to forfeit $40 million over illegal online pharmacy shipments - Reuters

    United Parcel Service Inc has agreed to forfeit $40 million it earned from illegal Internet pharmacies shipping drugs using its services, U.S. authorities said Friday.

    As part of the settlement, UPS entered a non-prosecution agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice.

    Prosecutors said UPS was on notice from 2003 to 2010 that Internet pharmacies were shipping drugs without prescriptions, yet the company didn't put procedures in place to shut down their accounts.
