Chinese fraudsters fake drug watchdog Web site

"This site is definitely not for real," an official at the regulator was quoted as saying. "These lawbreakers have got some balls!"

The fake site ( can be accessed from another purporting to be from a research institute promoting the miracle benefits of a new diabetes drug. But not only is that site a fake, the drug is too, the report added.
