Reviews – Full of Contradictions

common view is a store that wants you to believe that they are a safe place to purchase your medications. They sell generics and the prices are reasonable, but should you give them a chance? Our look at what they have to offer suggests some potential problems.

Domain Name Information

This pharmacy gives a copyright date from 2008, though when we check the domain name records it appears that their website address has only been registered since 2011. Despite this discrepancy, 9 years is quite a long time for a drugstore site to have been in business and this suggests that they are more likely to be legit.

registered in 2011

Everyone who registers a domain name has to supply their name and address. This would ordinarily be displayed in the domain name records but it can be hidden using a privacy service. That is what this business has chosen to do, though this is something frequently done by scam pharmacies more reliable sites sometimes do it as well.

Business Profile

The site gives the business name “Aceso Universal Ltd” and they have an address in the UK. When checking these details we can see one obvious problem. They have a typo in their address, they have misspelled “Blenheim” and though this is a minor issue, it isn’t what you would expect from a reputable business.

contact details

The address doesn’t appear to be an office location, instead, it seems to be either a residential home or a PO box address. However, the business is registered with the UK government, and a check on the Companies House site provides further information. Though the business appears to be in the UK they use a US phone number for customer support.

The company was incorporated in 2015 and the names of the directors are given in the record. From this, we can see that two of the three directors are residents of India, with the other also having given their nationality as Indian previously. This link to India might suggest that the pharmacy is really operating from that country.

Regulatory Approvals

For an online pharmacy to operate from a UK address, they need to be following the rules in Britain. This means that they should be registered with the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). A check with this agency shows that they aren’t registered as they should be.

invalid status

They should also display the Distance Selling Logo on every page of their site that offers medications for sale. This logo isn’t found anywhere and they are, therefore, not following the rules for a pharmacy in the UK.

Medications Sold

The pharmacy sells generic medications. They offer a good range of products for you to choose from, and the prices are lower than you might expect to pay from your local pharmacy.

a wide range

The store appears to ship meds from India, though the FAQ states that pills could be dispatched from anywhere in the world. They don’t provide details of where the meds are dispensed from beyond this very vague information.

This lack of information could indicate that the pills supplied through this pharmacy might not be the highest quality you would want. If we don’t know where the drugs are dispensed from we can’t check if this is carried out by people properly qualified to do so. This could mean that the pills are more of a risk to customers.

Payment Methods

The site has a valid security certificate, which is confirmed by McAfee. This is a good indication of a legit pharmacy, and they accept payment via:

  • Visa
  • Mastercard
  • E-check


Delivery is free on the site and is expected to take between 7 and 28 days to arrive at your door. They say the average shipping time is 21 days, however. Reviews

This store has a page for reviews, and there is a section on Trustpilot as well. Testimonials are more likely to be genuine on an independent review site, so we will look at them.

suspicious comments

There seems to be something not quite right with some of the feedback on their Trustpilot page. They might go for months without anyone leaving a comment then have a handful of testimonials left on the same day. For example, the store has 10 customer comments given on May 16, 2019, out of a total of 70 reviews.

This seems unnatural and could indicate that they are buying feedback or creating their own.


There are a good number of contradictions found with this pharmacy. They appear to be in the UK but dispense their pills from other countries and unnamed pharmacies.

They also fail to have the correct regulation for a UK based online drugstore. For these reasons, we give them an average score.
