ProMed24.net is an online pharmacy that sells men’s generic health drugs at a lower price. They claim to ship their products worldwide and boasts millions of happy customers worldwide. They also claim to have the largest stock of generic medicines and also provides faster redressal of customer grievances. The website looked suspicious as its layout is used by numerous rogue pharmacies in the past. So, we decided to review the pharmacy and below is what we found during our investigation.

The Whois data of this pharmacy says the domain was registered on 6th March 2019 and currently has an expiry date of 6th March 2020. So, the pharmacy going to only two more months unless the owner renews its license. This is common among rogue pharmacies whose only agenda is to dupe innocent people and run away after a certain period. The Loading speed is slow as it shares its server with 39 other websites.
The ScamAdviser data of this business says the owner is using a privacy service to hide their identity and physical location. They have provided a fake address of the Burlington City in the United States and also provided contact details and social media pages that are not in operation. Moreover, the data also says the business is operated from five different countries – the United States, Russia, France, Finland, and one random country that keeps getting altered after a certain period. Russia is a high-risk country for these types of businesses and its involvement could well have major ramifications.
Till now we found zero evidence that supports its legitimacy, but we needed to check its regulatory status to be fully sure about it. So, we moved to the websites of various concerned authorities such as CIPA, MPA, Pharmacy Checker, etc and checked their databases and as expected, there were zero traces of this pharmacy in any of the databases. Unfortunately, LegitScript is yet to review the pharmacy, so we are not sure about the quality of their products.
The pharmacy primarily sells men’s generic health drugs and always maintains a good inventory of all their products so that they won’t go out of stock during emergencies. Some of their best-selling products include:
The pricing of their best-selling drugs is ridiculously low and you won’t find these drugs at these rates in regular markets. Although they did not provide any information about where these drugs and sourced and dispensed from, it is highly likely that these drugs are sourced and dispensed from developing countries such as India where these drugs are available at a cheaper rate and most likely the counterfeited items of the original product.
The pharmacy accepts payments via Credit Cards issued by Visa, Mastercard, Amex, as well as E-Checks, Bitcoin, and Ethereum. Involvement of Bitcoin, Ethereum makes the pharmacy hugely suspicious as cryptos are mainly used as payment options by seamsters. Their payment getaway also doesn’t have any legitimate SSL seal meaning they could try to steal or duplicate your sensitive information during checkout.
The pharmacy claims to ship their products internationally and use the following two methods to ship their products:
❋ Airmail, with a standard waiting period of 2 to 3 weeks with no tracking available, and
❋ EMS Courier Service, with a standard waiting period of 5 to 9 business days with the option of tracking available
The final shipping charge will depend upon your physical location and the shipping method you choose. Your parcel could also get delayed at the customs, so stay patient if your parcel does not arrive within the stipulated period.
The pharmacy has its testimonial page that provides us a glimpse of the experiences of their past customers. However, during our probe, we found that most of these ProMed24.net reviews are owner-generated and full of lies. The reviews are full of praises of their products and services and there is no trust in those claims.
This pharmacy is just another drop in the ocean of rogue pharmacies. The owner is hidden, no regulatory approval and SSL seals, fake customer reviews all are common traits of a rogue business. They will likely go out of business if they are not already. So, our advice will be to stay away from this pharmacy and protect you’re your identity and well-being.
