Hazim Gaber, age 22, is also facing a $75,000 fine and should pay $53,724 in restitution, after being sentenced on August25 in U.S. District Court in Phoenix.

Gaber was convicted in June of selling fake sodium dichloroacetate, through his website As a minimum of 65 people in the U.S, Canada, Great Britain, Belgium and the Netherlands purchased product from his website. He was convicted of five cases of wire fraud for selling the substance to U.S. consumers. And was arrested in Frankfurt, Germany, and extradited to the U.S. in 2009.

DCA is a drug being investigated as a cancer-fighting agent by researchers at the University of Alberta. But, it has not been proven effectual, but early research shows promise. It is not currently available to cancer patients except in clinical trials.

According to a plea agreement, Gaber acknowledged his website contained false claims that it was the only legal supplier of DCA. Dennis K. Burke, U.S. attorney for the District of Arizona said: Gaber used the internet to persecute people already suffering from the effects of cancer.

Gaber will go to prison for this kind of scam business and heartless fraud.
