Drugstore-Family24.com allegedly sells high-quality generic and branded drugs at reduced prices to their customers worldwide. They only deal with some of the world’s best and proven suppliers for their products and are produced with the best quality raw items to give you the desired outcome. They also offer 24/7 customer service to all their customers as well as fast shipping of every order. We investigated the drugstore to find out whether they are indeed a safe pharmacy to shop for medications or is it just another online scam.

The domain of the drugstore was purchased on 29th November 2019 and it will expire on 29th November 2021. So, the pharmacy only has just over a month left in its expiry unless the owner renews the license. Such pharmacies are not ideal to buy medications as they might sell poor, low-quality drugs to clear their inventory instead of fresh products.
Scam Adviser detected several security glitches within the pharmacy and gave them only 1 trust score. The owner chose to use a privacy service to protect their identity as well as other business details from the general public.
The business could be running from mainland China, which is a high-risk country for these types of businesses due to producing several online scams in the recent past. Expectedly, none of their communication channels offer any response when we contacted them for further information about their business.
The owner also failed to obtain any regulatory certificate from CIPA, Pharmacy Checker, etc. for their business to make it a legal entity. They are also not allowed to sell their products in the USA as they are banned by the local governing body the NABP. The business is not listed in China either nor any other parts of the world. The drugstore is also listed as a rogue business by the Legit Script after they failed to meet their minimum standards for approval.
The drugstore mainly sells men’s brands and generic medications, but they also list a few other health products at its online store. Some of their popular drug categories are:
✔ Acidity, Antibiotics, Antifungal
✔ Blood Pressure, Cholesterol, Diabetes
✔ Gastro Health, Hair Loss
✔ Herbals, Men’s Health
✔ Sleeping Aid, Women’s Health
They don’t ask for a valid prescription, but they do recommend their customers consult with a specialist before buying their products.
The best indicator of the quality of these products is their pricing, which is cheap and way below their regular market rates. If these were original items, the prices would have been much higher and also include quality control certificates from the FDA or equivalent. They are also offering great deals and offers to their new and existing customers.
Major credit and debit cards from Mastercard and Visa are the only available payment options on their billing page. They also support crypto payments and SEPA transfers.
However, the platform is not secure with a valid SSL certificate from reputed vendors like Comodo, McAfee, etc. and users’ personal could be at serious risk of forgery.
The pharmacy claims to ship its items worldwide using Airmail and EMS Shipping. Airmail delivery takes around 2 to 3 business weeks to show up at the destination excluding the dispatch time and cannot be tracked. EMS delivery will take around 3 to 8 working days to show up at the destination excluding the dispatch time and can be tracked. The final shipping rates will vary and depend on several factors and will come with discreet packaging to ensure customer confidentiality.
Their testimonials page is filled with bogue customer reviews with no meaningful information about their business and product quality. It is hard to take these reviews and could be generated by the owner to attract more customers towards their illegal business instead of actual testimonials. Trust Pilot also does not include any Drugstore-Family24.com reviews on its platform despite the drugstore is more than a year old.
The pharmacy is almost certain to be another scam than a legit business. It is likely operating from China, a country known to be producing several online scams in recent memory. There is nothing in the pharmacy that says otherwise and encourages us to recommend them to users. Therefore, don’t order anything from their website and buy your medications only from genuine and credible pharmacies. We give Drugstore-Family24.com 1 out of 5 stars based on our investigation.
