About three years ago, on 22-09-2015, this pharmacy’s domain name was taken down. WhoIs has the information well-recorded in their database. The domain name age of three years means that this pharmacy isn’t experienced enough to be judged as experts in the field. Furthermore, the date set for expiry means that the domain name’s lifetime is only 4 years. According to the experience we have, such lifetimes, less than 5 years, are mostly associated with rogue online drugstores.
It is not our first time to mention that Hosting Concepts B.V d/b/a Openprovider, the pharmacy’s domain name registrar, is a common victim of FDA warnings. They’ve received several warnings against managing rogue pharmacies’ domain names. This pharmacy is also one of the hosted and, therefore, has high chances of being rogue too. The site is based in Slovakia but the reallocation is being hidden.
There are other online apothecaries that are impossible to tell apart from this one. Right from the age of their domain names, nature of services, drugs offered, testimonials, too many more, look exactly the same. This is a very clear sign of being a family member of rogue Internet pharmacies. We can’t possibly list all the mirror sites, but some are like:
All the above pharmacies belong to an illegal affiliate program. That raises a red flag for this online pharmacy.
Generic prescription medications, antidepressant medications, antifungal medications, men’s health drugs, antibiotics, and others are offered for sale at the pharmacy. What surprises is that most of these drugs need that a patient gets an appropriate prescription before they make a purchase, but the pharmacy doesn’t need one! This is lack of care for the customers, which don’t amount the professional ethics of a pharmacist. Though the pharmacy claims to have FDA-approved drugs, it isn’t the case. The drugs are sneaked into their stores by illegal means. Neither the FDA nor WHO can confirm that they’ve ever, in any way, authorized the sale of drugs in this pharmacy’s stores. This means that one has high chances of getting poisoned by these counterfeit medications. The drugstore’s pricing is extremely low. This could be attributed to the fact that the drugs are sourced from illegal manufacturers or suppliers. The prices are much lower than in legal and licensed online pharmacies. This is fraudulent pricing.
What makes things look worse is the lack of even a single regulatory approval from the long list of regulatory bodies. This means that the pharmacy operates illegally and this could be due to low-quality drugs and services that it offers for sale. This pharmacy’s domain name is missing in the following regulatory bodies’ databases:
1. The Canadian International Pharmacies Association (CIPA)
2. LegitScript declares that this pharmacy meets their definition of a rogue pharmacy
3. National Association of Boards of Pharmacies (NABP)
4. Pharmacy Checker
Payment and Delivery
Beginning with the payments schedule, this pharmacy accepts the only payment option – MasterCard. Nowadays, there is a good number of payment options available. Most of them aren’t accepted by this pharmacy. The reason is unclear but it stands that the above two are just too little for the range of expected customers to the pharmacy. All the payments are SSL-secured. This means that your shopping cart is secured and cannot be intruded by foreign third parties. About the delivery schedule, the pharmacy claims to deliver internationally. With the claims, it’s got only two delivery options. As for EMS, the order is always trackable, costs $30, and delays for around 6 days. As for Airmail, the order isn’t trackable and costs $15. Delivery can delay for as much as 3 weeks. The delivery options available takes too long for an order to reach you. The costs are higher than in most pharmacies.
The testimonials are the genetic twins of the ones in all those other mirror websites. This means that they’re fake reviews. Our efforts to find feedback from other sites were also futile. This means that apart from obtaining fake reviews from some online service, they’re also using another service to hide their own. This is a fraudulent action!
Taking a close look at the drugstore’s actions: poor quality of drugs, lack of regulatory approvals, untrustworthy business profile, and more, the pharmacy seems to be a typically rogue one, and that only deserves a 15% trust level.
