Who would ever think that taking an over the counter pill to enhance your sexual performance could be dangerous or even deadly? I am going to share a couple of articles of recent news regarding male sexual performance enhancers. This first case goes to prove that there are people out there that do not care about your health. They only care about profit. This can be very dangerous. This is another reason why I like VigRX Pills and Semenax. With them, I do not have to worry about safety or effectiveness
3 new federal cases allege illegal distribution of male sexual enhancement pills falsely branded as “herbal” medicine
LOS ANGELES – Three companies and five executives have agreed to plead guilty to federal criminal charges alleging that they purchased and resold millions of dollars’ worth of pharmaceutical-grade erectile dysfunction pills that were falsely labeled as male herbal remedies.
The anticipated guilty pleas are in relation to three cases filed today in U.S. District Court against distributors of the misbranded drugs. The investigation into these cases was conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Los Angeles, with assistance from the Food and Drug Administration’s Office of Criminal Investigations.
In one of the new cases, Ronald Daniel Scott, a.k.a., “Danny Scott,” 49, of Stevenson Ranch, agreed to plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge of introducing misbranded drugs into interstate commerce. Scott is the chief executive officer of Premiere Sales Group, Inc., a Santa Clarita-based company that also agreed to plead guilty to the same charge. Scott admitted in a plea agreement filed today that, from 2013 until early 2017, he purchased at least 1.7 million male sexual enhancement pills for $3.8 million from John Seil Lee, 40, of Walnut, the manufacturer of the pills who pleaded guilty in February to a series of felony offenses related to his illegal business.
Two other federal cases filed today charged the following six defendants with misdemeanor charges of conspiring with Lee to distribute his misbranded erectile enhancement drugs:
- Contenda Health LLC, a Southern Pines, North Carolina-based company;
- Chase Evan Cranford, 36, of Raleigh, North Carolina, the owner of Contenda Health LLC;
- Randall Cranford, 65, of Pinehurst, North Carolina, who is Chase Cranford’s father and who assisted him at Contenda Health;
- Eldorado Trading Company II, Inc., a distributor of adult toys and other sexual products, based in Broomfield, Colorado;
- Jon Vogt, 58, of Erie, Colorado, the director of purchasing for Eldorado Trading; and
- Dennis Jones, 65, of Thornton, Colorado, the senior buyer at Eldorado Trading.
According to court documents, Lee smuggled powder Tadalafil – the prescription drug used to treat erectile dysfunction and sold under the brand name Cialis – from China. Lee then manufactured the powder Tadalafil into pills that he sold to distributors across the United States. In order to boost sales, Lee made the pills with up to 14 times the level of Tadalafil contained in Cialis. Lee sold at least $11 million worth of pills across the United States – under names such as “X Again,” “X Monster” and “Royal Master” – with labels that did not disclose the presence of Tadalafil and falsely stated that no prescription was necessary.
In their plea agreements, Contenda Health and the Cranfords admitted to purchasing more than 1.4 million misbranded pills from Lee for approximately $2.1 million, which they resold to retail locations across the United States.
Eldorado Trading, Jones, and Vogt admitted in their plea agreements to buying hundreds of thousands of misbranded pills from Lee, which Eldorado Trading resold for a profit of at least $215,000.
Once they enter their guilty pleas, the five businessmen charged today each will face a statutory maximum sentence of one year in federal prison. The three corporate entities will face up to five years of probation, as well as monetary sanctions of up to $200,000 in fines or twice the gross gain resulting from the criminal offenses.
The arraignments in these cases have been scheduled for June 24 for the defendants in the El dorado Trading case, June 27 for the defendants in the Premiere Sales case, and July 15 for the defendants in the Contenda Health case.

San Gabriel Valley Man Sentenced to Federal Prison for Marketing High-Dose Male Enhancement Pills as Herbal Medicine
A San Gabriel Valley man was sentenced Monday to 100 months in federal prison for smuggling pharmaceutical-grade erectile dysfunction pills from China and making $11 million by marketing them as herbal remedies, prosecutors said.
The pills sold by 41-year-old John Seil Lee of Walnut contained the active ingredient in Cialis, and taking them caused some men permanent injuries, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for Central District of California.
The court also ordered Lee to pay men who took the incorrectly labeled pills, including those who were hurt, more than $552,000 in restitution.
In sentencing him, U.S. District Judge Percy Anderson said Lee has shown no remorse for the scheme “literally ruined lives,” according to the release.
“It’s obvious to me that this defendant has little or no respect for the law or the harm he caused numerous victims,” Anderson said.
Lee pleaded guilty Feb. 27 to three felony counts of conspiracy, importing contraband into the U.S. and filing a false tax return.
The defendant’s two companies, KHK International Trade Enterprise and SHH World Trading Enterprises, also pleaded guilty in the case. They were each sentenced Monday to five years’ probation; KHK was also fined $100,000, and SHH ordered to pay $115,484 in restitution, officials said.
Lee would illegally import tadalafil, the active ingredient in Cialis, in powder form from China. He used the drug to make pills with up to 14 times the level of tadalafil contained in Cialis, according to prosecutors.
The capsules — sold across the U.S. under names like “Monster X,” “One More Knight” and “Royal Master” — didn’t have labels disclosing tadalafil as an ingredient and fraudulently claimed no prescription was necessary, regulators say.
Lee allegedly continued to sell the pills even after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued warnings that they were dangerous. Instead, he changed the products’ names, such as altering “One More Knight” to “Own the Knight,” officials said.
Even after Lee shut down SHH following the execution of federal search warrants in February 2017, he allegedly helped his friend Jin Su Park set up a copycat business through which the pills continued to be sold.
Because taking large doses of tadalafil can lead to life-threatening drops in blood pressure, vision and hearing loss and painful erections that can result in permanent injury, the FDA only allows such drugs to be administered under medical supervision.
