Simon Hickman from Manchester who sold fake Viagra tablets online has been ordered to pay £14 Million or face 10 years in prison.

Simon Hickman, who lived in a four-bedroom farmhouse in Greater Manchester, has been ordered to repay more than £14m he made selling fake Viagra and slimming pills. Simon made £15.4million from his illegal online medicines operations. He is reported to have owned a property in Spain and paid £2.5 million for an apartment in upmarket Chelsea in London. Hickman also drove expensive cars including a Range Rover and Bentley with personalised number plate.

Viagra and slimming aids were sold through his website MSH World Trade. Other products sold through the site included sex toys, aphrodisiacs and penis enlargement pumps. His online business made a turnover of £6.1 million and profits of £3.4 million in just three years. Some Viagra tablets sourced from India were counterfeits and were illegal to sell in the UK.

Hickman was earlier jailed for two years in 2009 after an investigation by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). He was further sentenced to 22 months in prison for trying to obtain a passport by deception and selling property in breach of court order.

Investigations uncovered many bank accounts across the globe through which Martin would launder the money using more than 30 bank accounts in Malta, Holland and the Cayman Islands.

Hickman has been ordered by the Southwark Crown Court  to repay £14,407,850.28 within six months or face a further 10 years in prison.
