Nowadays, coming across a scam website is so frequent that it has become the order of the day. For instance, in the medical field, there is a number of online pharmacies that are selling substandard products and also conning innocent shoppers whose sole purpose is to secure safe medications. Imedicine-online.com is an example of such websites. This is because most of its transactions are questionable and every online shopper should take great caution when purchasing a product from there. Despite the fact that it has been in existence for a year or so, ScamAdviser has already labeled it as a high-risk website.

According to the information collected on the whois.com, the domain name imedicine-online.com was registered on 19th May 2017 by the Hosting Concepts B.V.d/b/an open provider. It is expected to expire on 19th May 2019.
The company has been in existence for the last 3 years. It was established by an unknown organization as a platform for selling high-quality generic drugs that are sourced from India. The motive behind the hiding of the identity of the founder is strange although some websites use it to protect the owner from receiving the spams. Normally, this anonymous service is commonly applied by the scam websites whose intention is to hide the identity. Its owner country is also concealed while its web hosting is based in Canada.
They claim that each of their product has been approved both internationally and by the FDA, although there is no proof to support that. Actually, LegitScript which is mandated in giving directions pertaining to the online drugstores has presented the drugstore as a rogue website. This indicates that most of their products are questionable and they aren’t fit for human beings consumption.
Products and Pricing
Usually, their products comprise of cheap generic drugs like antifungal, antibiotics, anti-allergy, and antidepressants. Without forgetting, they also have drugs that are solutions for problems like sexual health, male and female’s health, asthma and diabetes.
Some of their products include:
A dire concern about their products is the listing whereby they display a top-notch medication at an affordable price but both the quantity and quality are questionable. A look at the prices of the products shows that they are relatively inexpensive compared to other online drugstores. Also, they have free extra pills and free samples when a customer purchases some lifestyle drugs. The idea of free products is somehow strange due to the fact the drugs may be fake. For the customers, it advisable to avoid wasting their money and risking their health by evading such stores.
Payments and Shipping Methods
The accepted means of payments include:
❋ Credit card payment (Visa, Visa electronic, MasterCard, Discover, debit cards)
❋ Bank wire transfer
They lack an SSL certificate that confirms that a client’s payment details aren’t secure. Usually, their shipping policy extends to every corner of the world. The available shipping methods include the trackable courier service and the international unregistered mail. The charges are different whereby for the trackable courier service it attracts a shipping cost of $29.95 while for the international unregistered mail costs $9.95. The trackable courier service applies to countries like Sweden, Finland, Austria, and Belgium while the latter is a worldwide service.
They claim that they offer free delivery service yet little is said about it. The delivery time depends on the shipping method used. For the trackable courier service, it takes between 7-9 working days while for the international unregistered mail takes 14-21 weekdays. A peculiar thing about the shipment methods is that the international unregistered mail is picked as a default method.
Unlike the trusted online pharmacies that have reviews that are well spread across the internet, testimonials of this drugstore are only found on the site. A strange thing about them is that they are just hyperboles like “you saved my life” and so on. There is no review that recommends or corrects their products and services. From our assessment, the feedback is fake.
To begin with, they offer illusory products. Secondly, on the website, they have a lot of misleading and contradicting information that cannot be trusted.
