|BigPRX is another in the long line of bogus "herbal penis enhancement" products being promoted solely via illegally-sent spam emails. This property began being heavily spammed in October and November of 2008, filling the void for "male enhancement" spam which was created after the FTC froze all assets and operations of SanCash / AffKing who were previously best known for promoting a variety of these assumedly completely fake "herbal remedies".
This rogue spam should be considered separate and dictinct from an otherwise legitimate affiliate program for the site "bigprx.com", which is run by a company called Cloud Nine Lifestyle [www.c9network.com.]
Sites promoting BigPRX claim it to be a "100% herbal" male enhancement pill. As with all other spamvertised products such as these, the sites make numerous claims which have previously been proven to be 100% false.
Please note that whoever is building these sites routinely changes the name of the products ("Big XXX" for example.) As with the previous SanCash properties, these spammers don't really care what they call it, as long as they can spam it to millions of individuals who don't want to receive it.

As with literally every other type of "male enhancement" website promoted by illegally-sent spam messages, this one also makes a series of utterly false and erroneous claims, and features the same fractured English throughout the site that we've all come to expect from illegal spammers and their sponsors.
Benefits of having big and handsome Penis As it is seen in world researches, nearly 65 % of all women believe that big penis is significant benefit of man. Almost every woman dreams about the medicine which can make their man's penis bigger. Women confess that big penis is a grandiose guarantee on wonderful love making and multiple orgasms. If a man has big penis he will have self-assertion. His eyes are full of sexual energy and passion. Women see it and draw their attention to such kind of man. Man with big penis has big success among female sex. Some of you can say that big manhood is not enough to catch and awake her interest. Yes, you are right but big penis involves commutability, positiveness, sense of humor, confidence and other traits of man's man. Let's imagine... Woman lies on the sunny beach and gets a tan. Suddenly she notices the man who comes out of the ocean in tight-fitting swimming trunks and something interesting bulges out of these wonderful trunks. She thinks khow it would be grateful to make the acquaintance. She even can imagine his naked body and big penis. So, if he comes she will surely agree to meet. Nowadays science is full of improvements in all possible fields including medicine. Today medicine can provide safety, top quality and effective medications. If you are a men who suffers from little penis it will be easy to fix such problem. You needn't a surgery. You need BigPRX, miracle capsules with miracle enlargement effect.
It's only on sites promoting such bogus products that we see the word "miracle" thrown around so freely. Nowhere on the site is their any mention of the actual research and development of this "product", nor is there any mention of clinical trials, manufacturing process, or other elements which would lend even a hint of credibility to these claims.
Their testimonials, as we've seen with other sites of this caliber, also seem to have been written by the same person:
I just want to write down and share my feelings. BigPRX is my solution! First of all, it is herbal preparation and safety in all means. Not only my penis was increased but also my self-appraisal. Don't miss your chance and good luck! Scott
It is important to note that there is an otherwise legitimately marketed product named "Big PrX" available at http://www.bigprx.com. That site features links to Cloud Nine Lifestyle, an affiliate program which has a very strict anti-spam policy. Inbound spam sent on their behalf was immediately responded to when reported.
Any of the illegally-spammed sites this wiki entry references tend to feature Chinese-registered domains, hosted in China, whose order forms feature no security of any sort.
By comparison, the bigprx.com site does have valid Secure Sockets Layer (https) processing at checkout, using secure.cloudninelifestyle.com, which has a security certificate issued by Godaddy.
Searching for "Cloud Nine Lifestyle" [c9network.com] does lead to a site which provides information and ordering for "Premium Herbal Supplements". "Products include Super Strength 800mg Hoodia, HGH Releaser, and bigPRX" as shown in the thumbnail image.
The sites which we've seen promoted using illegal spam and the Chinese domains and hosting feature a variety of icons which claim "World Shipping", "Live Support Online" and "As See On TV" (sic). The so-called "live" support is in fact an email contact form which apparently doesn't do anything with the information posted. (Although, as usual, it's highly likely that this information is used in further spam campaigns, or sold to fellow spammers..)
The "genuine" BigPRX site features easy-to-verify contact information, an extensive customer support section, and even a blog. Cloud Nine Lifestyle has been very forthcoming with information about their company, and appear to be very proactive in shutting down affiliates who spam. Their brand is still being damaged by the work of these other rogue spammers with their knock-off versions of these sites.
The majority of this wiki entry will primarily deal with details of the Rogue spam operation, whose source is unknown. It is not wise to report these spamvertised domains to Cloud Nine Lifestyle as this spam is separate from their affiliate program, however if you do receive spam which references Cloud Nine or bigprx.com directly, those should indeed be reported to Cloud Nine.

Spammed domain is a throwaway chinese-hosted bp domain:

Which loads the site as a frame
This exposes the spam campaign id and affiliate id.
Images, css and other items are hosted on an illegally hijacked public host:
Credit cards are validated in real time, in shocking contrast to most spamvertised websites. However (unsurprisingly) absolutely no secure server is in place.
At this time it is unknown who the sponsor affiliate program is behind this type of spam. However the form layout on the spamvertised websites resembles those found on many Gang Productions websites such as International Rx. Further investigation is ongoing.
