You’re probably looking for an online drugstore that you can rely on for quality medications, aren’t you? Then, I suppose that this too is good news: that if you were almost considering CareStore24.com as one of your best choices, then its time you dropped your intention. We duly confirmed that this drugstore is just but another rogue internet drugstore that adds to the myriad number! And, by reading this review, we bet that a life is saved. The following were the factors we prioritized.

|Owner Country||Argentina, Russia|
|Name of Organisation||Med Market|
|Licenses, Certificates and Approvals|
|Toll-Number||+1 (844) 241 4210|

One thing we had to verify from WhoIs was the registration details of this business. It communicates a lot about the pharmacy. To begin with, the pharmacy’s domain name was registered back on 18-08-2016, which represents 2.5 years (domain name as well as online pharmacy’s age) ago. Mark that based on our previous findings, 93% of pharmacies aged less than 3 years have been verified to be rogue. There is some very important information about the pharmacy that it intentionally redacts for privacy purposes according to the information on WhoIs. Apart from its Registrant Contacts, no more is provided. The technical as well as Administrative contacts are needed but not provided. Suspicion is what it leaves us with as this is a trend in most unreliable drugstores.
Starting from the store’s location, it’s unclear whether it is operated from Argentina, Russia or Netherlands. Scamadviser specifies the possible location probabilities like 49%, 26%, and 25%, respectively. What’s the need of hiding a pharmacy’s physical location if there’s nothing sinister going on? Secondly, we haven’t ever trusted the host that goes by the name “Hosting Concepts B.V…” This is a company that has been warned on several occasions against hosting websites (especially online pharmacy websites) that are involved in unscrupulous dealings. It seems to host more of such websites than trustworthy ones – another red flag.
As it is the trend with get-quick-money pharmacies, their bestseller section is filled with sexual health drugs. This pharmacy is in this category. 95% of all the medications are generics. Despite this fact, a buyer isn’t required to send any prescriptions before the right drug is validated for shipping to them. Leaving patients to their own choice of drugs can lead to a lot of cases of drug mishandling. However, there are more generics sold by the pharmacy. Just to list a few:
❋ Anti-acidity drugs
❋ Sleeping aid drugs
❋ Weight loss supplements
❋ Skincare drugs
What added salt to the injury is the fact that all these drugs aren’t approved by any of the FDA and WHO! This puts the customer at great risk of poisoning. Prices are lower than the prices in most of the drugstores we made the comparison with.
Things even get worse here. None of the following bodies have approved the pharmacy. Some of the bodies just don’t have it in their databases. LegitScript categorized it as a rogue pharmacy.
ScamAdviser trusts it to a level of 61% (caution!) Argentina’s National Administration of Drugs, Foods and Medical Devices (ANMAT) doesn’t have it in their database. Since it’s also suspected to originate from Europe, we also checked through the database of MHRA but missed it there too. The above information shows that this is an illegal business. Can you really trust it? Absolutely never.
Payments and Delivery
When it comes to making payments, the initially insecure website redirects you to a secure payment page. As this may be good, paying for low-quality drugs will just be nothing. Payment options that seem to be preferred by the pharmacy are Visa and MasterCard. On the other side of deliveries, orders are shipped via two means:
❋ Registered Airmail (USPS in the United States)
❋ EMS delivery
All the costs aren’t specified. For that reason, we have a fear that some hidden charges may be incorporated. The waiting days are quite longer than in other pharmacies. In fact, there’s even no difference in 15 business days of the EMS and 3 weeks of the Airmail service.
There’s an insecure testimonials web page where you’ll find a number of good testimonials allegedly posted by satisfied customers. Below them is a slot for entering your own feedback. Sincerely speaking, all the displayed reviews aren’t from the pharmacy’s customers, neither will your comment join the others for display. The two are just included to entice new customers. It is a trend in rogue pharmacies. For this reason, we resorted to third party sites for more reliable reviews. However, our search was in vain as we found that the pharmacy’s website is “unclaimed” on TrustPilot.
It is a scam online pharmacy that sells poor quality drugs to innocent buyers. The business has no approval for operation from any regulatory body. CareStore24.com, for these reasons and others, therefore, deserves not more than a 15% trust level. Our advice is that you keep far off from this drugstore to be safe from poisoning and other disorders brought about by consuming poor quality medications.
Everything’s evident – this isn’t a pharmacy to trust.
