The Whois details of this pharmacy reveal that the domain was recently purchased on October 10, 2020, and the license will expire on October 10, 2021. So, the lifespan of the domain is exactly one year, and it’s not a good sign as this kind of lifespan is usually associated with rogue pharmacies. The website although loads very fast, its layout is present in several rogue pharmacies we investigated before.
ScamAdviser gave the pharmacy only 1 trust score and advised caution while navigating the website as they discovered several critical flaws in the website. Firstly, the owner’s identity and the business location details are kept private via a privacy service which is masking the actual information with fake details.
The data also highlights the pharmacy could be operating from Spain, but there might be some other nations also involved in establishing the pharmacy. The contact numbers given on the website as well as the live chat option are fake and do not exist in reality. The social media profiles are also unreachable and we were unable to contact them via any of their preferred communication channels.
The pharmacy is not part of CIPA and is also not affiliated with any other regulatory bodies that supervise the industry including IPABC, MPA, PharmacyChecker, MIPA, etc. This means the pharmacy does not have the necessary legal permissions to sell drugs and other medical products to people. Furthermore, the pharmacy is declared as a rogue business by LegitScript as the pharmacy failed to their minimum criteria for approval.
The pharmacy sells both types of drugs – generic and branded to their customers all sourced directly from well-known and established manufacturers worldwide. However, they don’t have a big inventory as they are still quite new in this business. Here are some of its popular drug categories:
✔ Allergy, Antibiotics, Asthma, Arthritis
✔ Blood Pressure, Cancer, Cholesterol
✔ Diabetes, Eye Drop, Hair Loss
✔ Herbals, Pain Relief, Quit Smoking
Another red-flag for the pharmacy is that you can buy their drugs without a valid prescription from an accredited physician. However, you must consult your doctor first regarding the suitability of the specific drug you are looking to buy.
The pricing of their popular drugs is another hint of a potential scam pharmacy as it almost matches the pricing of other rogue pharmacies. You can also buy their drugs with your local currency as the pharmacy supports multiple currencies at the checkout. The quality control certificates that come with the drugs are non-verifiable and fake only there to fool innocent people. This means these drugs are counterfeited items of the original drugs and may contain harmful ingredients causing severe side-effects.
The pharmacy supports multiple payment options including Visa, Mastercard, AMEX, Diners Club, Discover, JCB, and E-Checks. You will receive an email notification when your order is ready for dispatch and your card will be billed accordingly. However, there are also SSL seals available on the website from established vendors such as GeoTrust, Security Metrics, and McAfee all of which are fake. This means you will likely face higher security risks during checkout if you are not careful.
The pharmacy offers only one shipping option – Trackable Courier Service, which will deliver the parcel within 10 to 21 working days. The packages shipped by the service can be tracked and will take a maximum of 30 days to deliver. The pharmacy ships to most of the countries worldwide and the final shipping rates will depend on several factors including shipping location, shipping method, parcel size, etc.
The testimonial page of the pharmacy has a surprising amount of customer disclosers for a one-month-old pharmacy. However, upon close inspection, we find that most of these reviews are from early 2020 when the pharmacy was not active. Most of these reviews are full of praises and five-stars with very little substance. All these reviews look either stolen from other sources or generated by the owner to fool the public. Trust Pilot also does not contain any reviews on its platform.
Although the pharmacy is only over a month old, there are plenty of signs and hints that this pharmacy is going to become another major fraud pharmacy that will dupe innocent people and run away with their money and some piece of their personal information. We recommend you not to buy any of their products or use any of their services to protect your health and well-being. We give CheapShopMed.com a 1 out of 5 stars based on our research.
