Domain Name Information
This drugstore has only been in business for two years. Stores that have been online for less time have more chance of being a scam in our experience.
The store is also using domain privacy, so we are unable to check on the ownership of the business from the records. This is something often found with scam pharmacies, but this isn’t necessarily the case here.
The pharmacy does have an address on their contact page, however, this is very obviously fake and was likely just filler text from the template used to construct the website. The fact that they haven’t thought to update or remove this fake address, doesn’t make them look very good.
There is an about us page on the site, but that still doesn’t give any indication of even which country this store is operated from. This lack of any genuine information about who owns the store makes it a lot riskier for customers.
Pharmacies normally need to be following a whole host of rules when they are set up online. However, this pharmacy shows zero indication that they are following any rules or standards.
LegitScript has a very bad opinion of this pharmacy, rating them as a rogue.
This is their lowest rating and shows that they do not have the correct legal authority to be selling medicine online.
The biggest focus on this website is selling men’s health drugs, but they also offer other categories of treatment:
- Smart pills
- Pain relief
Most of the drugs being sold seem to be generic, but some information is missing from the product pages. We are not told the name of the company that manufactures the generic pills that they sell or even where they are dispensed from, though we suspect India.
This lack of information could mean trouble when you order medicine from this pharmacy. It could very easily mean that the pills being sold are low-quality instead of the high-quality the store promises.
If you order from this pharmacy, the pills might look as you expect, but that isn’t actually any way of telling what is contained inside the pills just by looking at them. If the tablets do not contain the correct ingredients, and something they shouldn’t, you might not know about it until an adverse change in your health.
There is always a danger that scam pharmacies like this one could be selling low-quality drugs.
Payment and Shipping
The pharmacy site is secure, and they will accept payment via either PayPal or major credit cards. The store does claim security protection from McAfee, though we are unable to confirm this and suspect it is a lie.
Shipping from this pharmacy costs $25, though they fail to provide any information on how long delivery will actually take. It seems likely that the pills being sold by this pharmacy are dispatched from India, so the delivery time could be nearly a month.
There is a small number of customer comments about this pharmacy on Trustpilot. These MedicScales.com reviews are, however, very mixed with two customers leaving five stars and the other two customers leaving one star.
These comments appear to be genuine and show that there are some very serious problems with this pharmacy. If you were to place an order with the store, it is quite likely you would face similar problems some of the customers have experienced.
While this pharmacy might look professional on the surface, the reality when you dig a bit deeper is anything but. The business lacks any accreditation, they have more negative feedback than you would expect, and we don’t even know where the meds are being dispensed from.
All of the issues with this pharmacy mean that you would be taking a huge risk by putting your trust in them. It could very well be the case that you do not receive your medication after placing an order with this store. And even if you do receive your order, the quality may not be very good.
We have no reason to recommend this pharmacy to anybody.
