IMI / Med1web was established as part of well known scam guide operators Novachannal AG. At the start of 2009 Med1web was sold to a Portuguese company, United Directories Lda. A few months later Novachannel was raided by Swiss Police for a second time, and its trade was suspended. A month or so later Novachannel was liquidated.
Chronology of the move to Portugal (some dates are approximate) | Skip to Advice
  • Late 2008 Novachannal AG undertakes large mailout of Med1web forms from Switzerland, many medical professionals sign these under the misapprehension that the form offers a free listing. Novachannel AG have previously suffered at least one legal setback regarding Med1web mailouts, the new forms do differ slightly from those found to be misleading but the fact that so many are signed in error indicates that the primary confusing elements remain. | See Form (PDF) 1
