    Default Feds: FedEx may face charges on illegal drug shipments

    UPS was in trouble for this too. My opinion is that how or why should a shipping company be responsible for what online drug companies are doing illegally?
    Federal authorities are considering filing criminal charges against FedEx, which is under investigation for shipping powerful prescription pills for illegal online pharmacies -- including some packages sent to Long Island, according to federal law enforcement sources.

    The unprecedented case being built against FedEx, the world's largest cargo airline, involves thousands of opioid pill shipments all over the country during the past decade, according to the two sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to discuss the investigation publicly.
    United Parcel Service agreed in March to pay $40 million earned from shipment proceeds to settle the same Justice Department probe and acknowledged its role in knowingly making shipments for illegal online pharmacies. FedEx has declined to settle, and that's why, the sources said, the probe is moving toward criminal charges.

    FedEx has taken a starkly different view of the law than UPS, promising to fight any potential charges and accusing the government of trying to get it to invade customer privacy by opening packages containing medication.
