Juvenile apothecaries, especially those whose ages are less than 5 years have a pattern of lacking enough experience, thereby dispensing substandard products. The domain name got registered on 14-04-2017, which represents close to 2 years to date. This is within the juvenile age just described above. Consequently, it’s one of the young hence inexperienced online pharmacies. Likewise, the expiry date recorded as 14-04-2019 represents a 2-year lifetime for the domain name. Domain name lifetimes less than 3 years is a pattern exhibited by 99% of rogue online drugstores.
Hosting Concepts B.V d/b/a Openprovider is a domain name host with several warnings from the Food and Drugs Administration against hosting rogue online pharmacies’ domain names. It is the same host managing this pharmacy’s domain name. There are high probabilities that this is a typical rogue online drugstore. When we tried to locate the website, our results directed us to Canada. This is the most probable location of the drugstore’s website, though there are even higher chances that the website’s actual location is undiscoverable. This evasive character is common among all the rogue drugstores. After all, why should a legit drugstore conceal the reallocation of its website?
Medications and Pricing
Categories of drugs are available in plenty at this pharmacy. You’ll get a wide selection of drugs like:
❋ Weight loss supplements
❋ Men’s health drugs
❋ Skincare meds, and more varieties
Despite this fact, the drugstore’s bestsellers are sexual health medications. These are drugs believed to thwart the effects of impotence. Majoring in the sale of such medications is also a popular trend in substandard Internet drugstores. Turning to the nitty-gritty: the quality of medications, we noticed that not even a single drug dispensed by this pharmacy is FDA-approved! This is contrary to the information provided in their FAQ webpage. The pharmacy, therefore, lies to customers so as to attract them. This is fraudulent. Again, the medications could be sourced from smuggling across the borders. This poses a lot of dangers to customers’ health. Drugs’ prices at the drugstore are extremely low. This is one of the points of pride of the pharmacy. In fact, there are discounts that one enjoys when they purchase drugs in large numbers.
We expected an approval or license issued to this drugstore from at least one of the following bodies: CIPA, LegitScript, ScamAdviser. To our surprise, none of them ever recognized the company as a legit online drugstore. In fact, LegitScript declared it rogue. ScamAdviser, on the other hand, awarded the pharmacy a low trust rating of 0% (high risk!) This means that the pharmacy operates illegally.
Payment and Shipping
Secure payment is invested upon by the pharmacy. The payment options, which are available in plenty, are like:
❋ Visa Electron
❋ Bank wire transfer
This section is well organized. Turning to the shipping options, they’re two of them. Trackable Courier Service (Costs $29.95 and reaches the destination within 7-9 days). International Unregistered Mail (Costs $9.95 and delays for 14-30 days before getting to the destination). The pharmacy assures customers of fast and secure delivery. However, no genuine customer feedbacks confirm this! This section is therefore based on empty promises.
This pharmacy has a section dedicated for displaying their alleged customer feedbacks. All the feedbacks praise the pharmacy’s services and delivery promptness. These are only lies. The testimonials are common across so many online drugstores, which also have the same layout as this pharmacy does. Other reviewing sites like TrustPilot also have no reviews left for this pharmacy. The pharmacy is, therefore, either not popular or uses a service to hide its reviews (in which majority are negative) from other customers’ sight.
When an Internet drugstore sells poor quality drugs, no other good thing should convince a customer to acquire drugs from it. CouponMeds.com is a drugstore of this type. With all its actions: lack of regulatory approvals, poor quality medications, unguaranteed shipping, fake testimonials, and a few negligible positive characteristics.
So the pharmacy is in the class of 10% trust level.
