Domain Name Information
Checking the domain name information for this business tells us that they have been online for a long time. This can suggest that they are less likely to be a scam since stores that rip people off tend not to last too long.
While the exact address of the owner of this site is hidden in the records thanks to a domain privacy service, we can assume that they are in China. They are using a Chinese registrar, so it is highly likely that they are also located in the same country.
The suspicion of this being a Chinese company isn’t confirmed on the pharmacy site. They do give an address, but it wasn’t where we were expecting. They give an office address in Cyprus, somewhere known for offshore business formations.
Offshore businesses are a way of avoiding tax and other concerns, so this finding makes them seem less likely to be legit. The fact that they have misspelled the name of the city they are located, also points to this not being an address where they are really based. They say that they are in Lamaca when it is really spelled Larnaca.
The pharmacy fails to provide any regulatory seals to show that they are professionally doing business. Since this pharmacy claims to be based in the EU, even if that isn’t really the case, they should be following the rules for European Union members. This requires them to display the common EU distance selling logo throughout the site.
However, this important logo isn’t to be found anywhere on the store. This means that they aren’t operating the pharmacy legally from an EU country.
LegitScript agrees with our finding, giving the pharmacy the rating of a rogue business that you shouldn’t place your trust in.
The store offers a limited range of pills to their customers, with the main focus on men’s health drugs. Prices aren’t the cheapest either, with some generics at twice the price we frequently see.
Other product categories provided to customers include:
- Pain relief
- Weight loss
- Allergy treatments
When we check the product pages on the site, we find they do give a lot of information like expiry dates, but they do miss out some important details. They don’t say who has manufactured the generic products or where they are dispensed from. Missing these details can suggest that a store is more likely to be a scam that is selling low-quality drugs.
The risk of taking low-quality drugs is a problem many people don’t consider. But when you are buying medications on a website that isn’t legit, you simply don’t know what is contained in the pills.
You might get lucky and get exactly what you expect, but you might not. And suffering the repercussions of taking pills that contain the wrong ingredients, could be very severe indeed.
The site is secure and they will take payment through major credit cards or eCheck. They also offer payment through Arkcode.
Shipping is free when you spend more than $200 (or $100 depending on which part of the site you look at). However, they don’t provide information without placing an order to tell you your shipping costs if you don’t reach that $200 milestone.
They do have a page on their site for MyNetPharma.com reviews. They have six testimonials on this page, and strangely, they all give the pharmacy 4 out of 5.
Normally, testimonials posted to pharmacy sites are selected because they give the maximum possible rating, but not in this case. It’s difficult to be totally sure, but these testimonials don’t appear to be entirely genuine.
While you would normally expect testimonials like these to comment on the service provided by the pharmacy, these mostly only talk about the pills and how well they work. This doesn’t seem like a genuine response from a customer, instead, seeming like marketing.
While the store has been in business for a very long time, there are a lot of things wrong. They appear to be using the address of an offshore company, with the real owner in China.
They also fail to have the correct regulation for pharmacy in Cyprus. We don’t suggest you make a purchase at this store.
