Pfizer was fined nearly $ 5 billion for healthcare-related offenses and drug or medical equipment safety violation
Pharmaceutical giant Phizer has paid more than $ 4.7 billion in fines over the past 20 years for 80 different crimes and violations, including off-label or unapproved promotion of medical products, foreign corrupt practices, bribery, government-contracting-related offenses and drug or medical equipment safety violations.
And these are only identified and proven cases, how many hidden are currently unknown.
According to Violation Tracker on Good Job First, only for unapproved promotion of medical products and government-contracting-related offenses, Pfizer was found guilty in 33 cases.
Also in the report of the Corporate Research Project it is said that the pharmaceutical company Pfizer tried to use legal loopholes to avoid paying taxes in the United States by moving assets and production to Ireland, but they failed to complete this idea.
However, aggressive marketing is still working for the corporation, and the coronavirus pandemic has strengthened Pfizer's position in the drug market as they said their vaccine would be super effective.

Effective at what exactly?
Reducing symptoms of a disease with a 99+% survival rate?
Here the Pfizer chairman clearly states...

Amid an extremely murky and dark history of the pharmaceutical company, many Americans have questioned the veracity of Pfizer's claims about a new vaccine for Covid-19.
“Pfizer has been fined over $4.7 billion since 2000 for false claims acts, off-label or unapproved promotion, Foreign corrupt practices, with over $103M for "drug or medical equip safety violations" & over $34M for "kickbacks & bribery." Who wants their vax?”
