Rx-Stock.com is one of the newest online pharmacies that claim to sell safe and high-quality drugs and other health medicines at a cheaper price. They also claim to offer 24/7 online support via their online chat box available on their website along with the toll-free United States and the EU phone number. We reviewed the pharmacy recently to check whether their products or services were indeed legit or are it just another rogue pharmacy. Read below to know what we found during our investigation.

The WhoIs data says, the domain was first created on 2nd September 2019 and currently has an expiry date of 2nd September 2020. The pharmacy is only one month old and its features and the website design are quite similar to several other rogue websites we investigated before. The website is also using a shared server instead of its own along with 33 other websites and its registrar name is GKG.NET, INC which is also common among rogue pharmacies.
The owner of this pharmacy is using a paid service to hide their identity as well as their actual physical address. Therefore, it is hard to identify who the actual owners are and where they are located. The pharmacy also has a very low trust rating of 37 on ScamAdviser. Their contact details, as well as social media pages, are not responding to our messages making their intentions clear.
Due to being very young, the pharmacy is not present in any concerned legal authority’s database. Regulatory authorities such as CIPA, PharmacyChecker, MPA are yet to review the pharmacy so it is tough to judge the pharmacy from a regulatory point of view. LegitScript also has not included the pharmacy yet on their website so probably we have to wait for a little longer before they include and classify it.
The pharmacy sells men’s generic health drugs but also some other health medicines but only to bypass regulatory scrutiny on their business. Most of their best-selling items are generic health drugs intended to improve performance on the bed with some other health medicines distributed in between.
Some of their products include:
❋ Antibiotics and Antivirus
❋ Blood Pressure and Cholesterol
❋ Migraine and others
Almost all their best-selling items are available at an extremely low price and you won’t get these items in traditional markets at these rates. They also claim all their products are sourced and dispensed from India and are approved by the FDA India, however, we did not find any proof of that claim. They are also offering enough incentives to their prospective customers to buy products in large quantities which is a common trend among rogue pharmacies.
The pharmacy accepts payments via credit cards issued by Visa and MasterCard as well as via Bitcoin and PayPal. The involvement of Bitcoin is suspicious as it is primarily used by scammers to dupe customers as you can’t get a refund. You are also transferred to an external payment getaway while checkout and there are no SSL seals on that page meaning your information would likely get stolen if you are not careful.
The pharmacy claims to ship their products internationally and they use two shipping methods to ship their products. They are:
❋ Airmail, with an estimated shipping period of 2 to 4 weeks with no tracking
❋ EMS Shipping with an estimated delivery period of 5 to 7 business days
They also free shipping on every Airmail order over $200 and every EMS order over $300. They also offer free pills with every purchase you make on their website.
They have their own customer testimonials page where you can read what their previous customers are saying about their products and services. Unfortunately, we found that most of these Rx-Stock.com reviews are fake and created by the owner itself. There is no legitimacy of these reviews and some of them are a common sight on several other rogue pharmacies we investigated before.
The pharmacy is still fairly new to call them an outright scam. However, there are enough pieces of evidence that it will soon turn into a scam. The owner’s decision to hide their identity and address, no SSL seals, fake user testimonials, no regulatory approvals all are major indicators of a potential scam and not a legit business.
We give this pharmacy a 15% trust level based on our findings.
