Domain Name Information
Checking the domain name records for this drugstore shows that they have been in business since 2018. Pharmacies that have been around for a shorter time are considerably more likely to be a scam, so this isn’t great.
There is some information about who has registered the domain normally given in the records. For this pharmacy store, however, information about the owner is missing. They have chosen to use a domain privacy service provided by their registrar, to hide their real contact information.
While this is very often used by rogue drugstores, it can also be used by reliable companies too.
There is a business address and name on the site. It tells us that this pharmacy is operated by “Europharm Group Inc” which are located in the Czech Republic.
While this might appear reassuring, it isn’t. We have seen these business details many times before and don’t believe them to be a genuine business. There aren’t any references to this business in official databases that we can locate, so this looks like fake business details.
The pharmacy doesn’t display any regulatory seals that would show they are following high standards. If they are really located in the Czech Republic they should be, however. Since the Czech Republic is in the European Union they are legally required to follow the distance selling rules for the EU.
This means that they have to be registered with a government agency and display the common distance selling logo on every page of the site that sells medications. They don’t show this important anywhere on their store. They, therefore, must be operating illegally in the EU.
Checking with LegitScript we can see that they consider this pharmacy to be a rogue. This is the lowest classification they give to the stores they check, and shows that the pharmacy lacks the accreditation they need to sell medication in the countries they do.
The best selling products on the site are the men’s health pills. Their prices are fairly low, though not the cheapest.
Checking the product pages of the store doesn’t reveal who has manufactured the pills or where they are dispensed from. This means that the pills are likely to be low-quality which could be dangerous to customers of this store.
While this pharmacy does offer free men’s health pills with every order, there are a few problems with this. They will send them to you regardless of whether they are suitable for you. Like the rest of the products on the store, they don’t require a prescription and these drugs could do some people a great deal of harm.
When you try to complete a transaction on this pharmacy they direct you to a different payment site. This other site does have basic security and lets you pay with the following options:
You can choose between EMS (Express Mail Service) or airmail for the delivery of your pills. Airmail costs $14.95 and EMS is $24.95. EMS benefits from faster shipping by a few weeks and provides a tracking number as well.
They offer free airmail shipping when you spend over $200, and free EMS on orders above $300. They also charge $6.95 for delivery insurance, though this is something that should automatically be included in the price.
This pharmacy does include a page for MDS-Top.com Reviews, however, there are some significant issues with this page. All of their customer feedback is from 2015 when we know that their domain was registered in 2018.
This shows that these testimonials can’t be genuine, and, in fact, we have seen them before on other scam pharmacy sites.
The problems with this pharmacy are too many to ignore. They are anonymous, have no regulatory approval, and are using fake feedback.
