TrustedMedStore24.com is an online pharmacy that sells branded and generic pills at a cheaper price. They claim their products are approved by the FDA and also offer superior customer service than any other online pharmacies. We reviewed the pharmacy a few days ago to check the legitimacy of their claims and whether their claims are indeed true. During our investigation, we discovered some interesting revelations about the pharmacy. Read below to know more about those revelations.

The pharmacy’s Whois page says the domain was created on 2nd November 2012 and currently it has an expiry date of 2nd November 2020 unless the owner renews its license. So, the domain existed long enough to not declare it an outright scam and has around nine months in its lifespan. However, its registrar is a vague company named GKG.NET, Inc which is associated with several rogue pharmacies in the past does raise some eyebrows and also shares its server with 13 other websites causing slow website speed.
The pharmacy’s ScamAdviser page gives us very little information apart from the involvement of two countries in its set up – Canada and Romania. These things are also quite common among rogue pharmacies as their owners do not share their whereabouts to avoid any legal scrutiny of their business. The contact details and social media pages are all vague and do not exist in reality as we did not get any answers to our queries from them.
One of the best ways to judge any pharmacy’s legality is by checking their regulatory status with the concerned authorities such as NABP, MPA, CIPA, Pharmacy Checker, etc and as expected, we did not find any traces of this pharmacy in any of their databases. Furthermore, LegitScript reviewed the pharmacy’s products and services and gave them a rogue rating. This means they sell low-quality products that failed to meet their minimum standards and will likely cause side effects to human health if consumed.
The pharmacy claims to maintain a large inventory of a wide range of medications covering the most diseases and conditions. Although they sell both branded and generic drugs, their best-selling drugs are mostly generic with some branded ones distributed in between. Some of their products include:
❋ Allergy, Asthma, Antibiotics
❋ Antifungal, Antiviral, Blood Pressure
❋ Cancer, Cholesterol, Diabetes
❋ Pain Relief, Weight Loss and others
The pricing of their generic drugs is very low and this kind of pricing is only associated with rogue pharmacies. There is no way you can find these drugs at these prices in the regular market and the FDA probably does not even know about these drugs’ existence. These drugs are counterfeited items of the original items brought into the country from developing countries such as India via cross-border smuggling without paying any taxes.
The pharmacy accepts payments via credit cards issued by major vendors such as Visa, Mastercard. Your card will be charged as soon as your order is ready to be dispatched and you will get an email notification once it happens. However, there is no SSL certificate on their payment getaway meaning they might try to steal or duplicate your sensitive details during checkout so you need to be careful if you order from this pharmacy.
The pharmacy claims to ship most of the countries worldwide 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 Delivery, which takes up to 5 to 9 business days to deliver your products with the option tracking available
Sometimes parcels could get delayed at the customs, so you need to stay patient if your parcel did not arrive within the stipulated period.
The pharmacy does have a testimonial page but it has some comments that are probably not genuine. The same is the case with other review platforms such as TrustPilot where no TrustedMedStore24.com reviews were published till now. This makes our investigation even harder as we don’t get to know the pharmacy from the customers’ point of view.
This pharmacy is just another scam and there is no need to buy anything from them. If you do, then there are high chances of identity theft and you would in a lot of trouble. We did not find any evidence that suggests it is a legit business and there is no guarantee you will receive your parcel in due time. Therefore, stay away from this so-called online pharmacy to protect both your health and identity.
