Yahoo Finance airs a video on the top five most dangerous counterfeits and explains the ever growing global counterfeiting industry which now is valued at over $600 Billion annually.

US Customs and Border Patrol reports that seizure of counterfeit pharmaceuticals totaled $11 Million in 2009. The 2010 number is anticipated to easily exceed that value.
