Domain Name Information
The domain name records show that this pharmacy may have been online since 2011.
This normally indicates that the pharmacy is less likely to be a scam because they have been operating for a number of years.
We can also find some additional information in the domain name records. We can see that the domain is registered to a Russian citizen living in Moscow.
Given that this domain name has been registered to a Russian individual we would expect a Russian address to be featured on the website as well. However, they don’t give their business location on the drugstore. This is commonly found with scam pharmacies, so not a good thing to see here.
While this pharmacy promotes its claims of selling high-quality drugs, this isn’t backed up by any actual evidence that they are operating with regulatory or legal approval. The site doesn’t feature any seals from recognized regulatory associations that would confirm this pharmacy is operating to high standards.
When we check with LegitScript we find that they give the drugstore their lowest rating of a rogue. This suggests that your information and order won’t be dealt with in a professional way.
Pills Sold by this Store
This pharmacy offers both generic and the more expensive brand name pills to their customers. While they seem to offer a good range of products their best sellers are the men’s health pills. Some of their other product ranges include:
- Blood pressure pills
- Pain relief
- Weight loss
- Sleeping aids
The pharmacy doesn’t tell us either where the pills are manufactured or where they dispense them from. This increases the likelihood of the pills being low-quality or fake, many times over.
The prices on the site are low as well, and this is another indication that the pills offered by this pharmacy aren’t going to be very good. The risks of taking fake and low-quality drugs could be significant if the wrong level of ingredients is included in the tablets. The pills could have been created in conditions which aren’t sterile and by people not qualified for the job.
The drugstore also doesn’t need a valid prescription no matter what you want to order from them. This is another factor frequently found with pharmacies which aren’t following the rules and makes this store more likely to be unreliable.
Payment and Shipping
When it comes to paying for the pills you want to buy from this pharmacy you are sent to a different to enter your payment information. This other site is secured with a valid SSL certificate, unlike the main store, and they will accept payment via the following methods:
- Major credit cards
They have two options for delivery. Airmail at $10 and courier at $30. Airmail should take between 14 and 21 business days, meanwhile, courier only takes 5 to 9 days. Courier also gives you a tracking number as well.
The comments found on the FavoriteDrugstore.com reviews page are all very positive. They either give the pharmacy 4 or 5 stars and there are over 100 customer comments. Strangely, the most recent comment is from January 2018 with nothing since. Has their stream of customers stopped leaving feedback for the business?
No, the truth is all the comments on this page are totally fake. Testimonial pages, on pharmacies like this one, are all too often filled with fake comments and that is what we find here. We know they are fake as we have seen them on many other sites before now.
This pharmacy isn’t a good place to put your trust in if you are looking for safe medication. They don’t have any regulation, are using fake customer feedback and the quality of the pills is likely to be low. While they don’t want to tell you where they are based, the domain records indicate this store is owned by someone in Moscow, Russia.
