We probed the pharmacy and its products recently. Read below to know more about what we found during our investigation.

The WhoIs data says the domain was first registered on 22nd July 2015, was last updated on 12th June 2018 and currently has an expiry date of 22nd July 2020. Since the domain is more than three years old, it will be hard to declare it as an outright scam. However, the domain does not have its own server and is currently running on a shared server which is also used by more than 100 websites currently. The setup of this domain is related to 3 countries – the United States, Australia, and Russia are also enough to raise some eyebrows.
According to ScamAdviser, the owner of this business has decided to remain anonymous and has also not disclosed the actual location of the business. However, during our probe we found that the website’s setup is related to Russia, a country famous for online scamming and duping several people. We also tried to reach them via email, phone calls, and their various social media pages but we yet hear a response from them. It is really a strange behavior from a drugstore that is calling themselves legit.
The drugstore also claims that their products are approved by various international agencies such as WHO, FDA, TGA, and MCA. However, during our detailed investigation, we found that the pharmacy and its products do not have any association with any of these agencies and all their claims are completely fake. To confirm our findings, we also checked with LegitScript where the pharmacy is classified as a rogue one which means their products are not safe for human consumption.
The drugstore primarily sells men’s generic health drugs at a cheaper rate. However, they also sell various health medicines but that mainly because of avoiding any legal inquiry. Most of their best-selling items are pure generic drugs. Some of their products include:
✔ Blood Pressure
They also claim to require a valid prescription before selling any RX drugs but it is hard to believe such claims for a pharmacy that decided to hide their identity and location.
Most of their best-selling generic drugs are available at a much cheaper rate than actual markets. It is hard to believe these drugs are legit and approved by any legal authorities such as FDA, TGA, etc. These are most likely the counterfeited items of genuine drugs. We also found that the source and dispense their products from developing countries such as India, Pakistan, and a few other Asian countries where these drugs are available at a cheaper rate instead of their own dispensary.
The pharmacy offers multiple payment methods to their customers such as credit cards issued by Visa and Mastercard, Discover, American Express, Western Union, and MoneyGram. However, they do send you to an external website at the time of checking out which they claim to be secure.
The pharmacy ships their products internationally and they use two shipping methods to do so. They are:
✔ Airmail, with a delivery charge of $10 and a delivery period of around 3 weeks with no tracking
✔ EMS delivery, with a delivery charge of $30 and a delivery period of within 2 weeks with the option of tracking available
Every Airmail order over $89 and every EMS order $250 are eligible for shipping.
The drugstore has its own testimonial page where you can check the user reviews. However, one close at all these reviews bound to raise suspicions. Apparently, all the reviews originated from the United States even though they claim to be international and are mostly positive. The bad use of English grammar also does not help its cause.
We found enough evidence during our investigation to call it a potential scam. The owner’s choice to remain anonymous as well as hide the business location, no authentic legal approval, suspicious customer reviews, uncertified payment page all points to it being a scam. We don’t recommend this drugstore at all, use it at your own risk. We give 1.5 out of 5 stars based on our findings.
