The Whois data of this pharmacy says the domain was first registered on 23rd July 2019 and currently has an expiry date of 23rd July 2020. For a pharmacy that claims to be in the operation for over 12 years and serves over 128 countries, this is nothing short of surprising. However, this is a common practice among rogue pharmacy owners and we will be extremely surprised if it is not turned into a scam. The domain also has a Japanese registrar and currently does not share its server with any other website.
The ScamAdviser data says the owner of this business is using a privacy service to hide their identity as well as where they are located. Most rogue pharmacy owners use this strategy to hide their whereabouts and avoid legal scrutiny while running their business illegally. All the contact details provided are vague and not in operation as we did not get any response from them. The data also says two countries involved in its set up – the United States and Germany making their case even more curious.
Till now all evidence point to them being a scam business and not a legit one, but to confirm their status, we needed to check their legal status. So, we headed to check the databases of various legal authorities such as Pharmacy Checker, CIPA, MPA, etc. As expected, we did not find any traces of this business in any of the databases. Furthermore, LegitScript reviewed the pharmacy and gave it a rogue rating meaning they sell low-quality products that are harmful to human health.
The pharmacy claims to maintain a catalog of over 1000 medicines, both generic and branded. They always keep a stock of all their products, so that they never go out of stock. Some of their products include:
❋ Allergy, Asthma, Antibiotics
❋ Blood Pressure
❋ Cancer, Cholesterol
❋ Diabetes, Migraine, Obesity
The pricing of their generic drugs is way below their traditional market rate and it is hard to believe these are the actual items and not duplicated products. All their drugs are sourced and dispensed from developing countries such as India and they claim all their products are Indian FDA approved without providing any evidence. These drugs are brought into the country via cross-border smuggling meaning they don’t have to pay any taxes.
The pharmacy accepts payments via credit cards issued by Visa, Mastercard, Amex, and E-Checks. Your credit card will be charged as soon as your parcel is ready to be dispatched and you will be notified via an email. There is no SSL seal on their payment getaway either meaning they will likely try to steal your sensitive information during checkout.
The pharmacy claims to ship their products over 128 countries and they use the following two methods to ship their products:
❋ Airmail, with an estimated delivery period of 10 to 21 days after the product is dispatched and costs $10 with no tracking, and
❋ Express International Mail, with an estimated delivery period after the product, is dispatched and costs $30 with tracking available
You can always track your order and in case your product gets delayed at the customs, stay patient and don’t panic.
The pharmacy has its customer testimonial page full of praises and over-the-top claims about their products and services. It looks like these SpiceOfLifePharmacy.com reviews are owner-generated and are not genuine. Some of these reviews are also present in many other rogue pharmacies we investigated before and have now closed their shop.
During our investigation, we found nothing that says it is a genuine pharmacy. The owner’s decision to hide their whereabouts, false reviews, tall claims, no SSL and legal approval all are clear indicators of a scam business. There is no need to buy anything from their website as might fall victim to identity theft. Therefore, stay away from this pharmacy and don’t fall victim to this rogue online pharmacy.
