Domain names that were registered only a few years ago aren’t as reliable as older ones. The older ones have experience and we’ve duly confirmed that most of them run properly regulated online drugstores. This drugstore’s domain name is of the budding type. It was registered two years ago, hence its age. This is where the very first suspicion lies.
You must only visit safe websites with which even if you share your details, the details are safe. Also, safe websites do not pose dangers to your browsing device. This pharmacy’s web platform isn’t safe, though it’s easy to navigate.
Who’s the merchant? Where’s the business based? Such questions and more are answered only in this section. This business is operated from a place not precisely known to many. ScamAdviser looks into this and suggests the following:
✔ Russian Federation – 85%
✔ Netherlands – 15%
We can then conclude that it is located in the Russian Federation, based on high chances. But, there’s a line on the web platform that tries to claim that this is an American store. By using the wrong location name, the merchant is trying to assume a fake profile to deceive more customers into the scam.
Rogue stores are going to sell you a number of sexual health medications and a limited number of the other categories of drugs. This is exactly what this web store does. To make it worse, the drugs are dispensed without any regulations on them. So, they aren’t of a quality that adds value to your health. Lastly, the drugs aren’t original ones. They’re generics whose source is also not clear. This adds more danger possibilities. We, however, noticed that the shop offers very good deals in terms of prices. Each drug has its cost-effective price tagged under it on the list of drugs.
Being a pharmacy whose country of origin isn’t precise, we had to check across a number of databases of regulatory bodies for its status. Here were our results:
✔ The site’s name isn’t in the database of safe pharmacies of NABP
✔ The pharmacy’s drugs aren’t as well regulated by the FDA
✔ It has a trust rate of 54% from ScamAdviser
✔ It certified the definition of a rogue store by LegitScript
Generally, the pharmacy isn’t regulated to the needed standards.
Payment and Delivery
Each payment is made on a safe platform online. The website will redirect you to the safe web page when you click on “check out”. Only 2 shipping methods are available for customers. Airmail (USPS for USA clients) shipping that costs $10 and the order delays for between 2-3 weeks. The order can’t be tracked. This option is usually available for most countries. EMS courier shipping that has a cost of $20 and an order waiting window of between 3-8 business days. This option, however, isn’t available for most countries.
There’s a web page of the online platform that contains some good number of testimonials, allegedly from happy customers. This is a trick. The reviews are popularly known to be robotics used across a number of scam online pharmacies. Their aim is clear: to attract more and more customers for fraud. Third party websites also had none, except for MyWot that had a single negative one. The negative review had it clear that the website is run by Russian cybercriminals.
The number of unreliable online pharmacies have always been on the rise and this is another one to add to the mix. This store has a poor drug’s list, selling mainly sexual health generic drugs. It is also not regulated and has a plethora of fake testimonials to deceive unsuspecting customers. A reliable review from a neutral, external website reveals that it is operated by a group of online fraudsters. We have no reason to purchase drugs from the pharmacy for fear of the status of our health. Hence, we rate the drugstore with a 1-star.
