Domain Name Information
The address that this pharmacy is using has only been registered for a short amount of time. And with only around 6 months in business, there is a greater chance that the pharmacy is a scam.
This pharmacy also seems less legit because they are using a privacy service to hide their real contact information. A Russian registrar has been used to register the domain name, which could indicate they are located in that country.
Domain privacy is sometimes used by reliable businesses, but it doesn’t exactly make them look like the most trustworthy operation.
However, when we check details on the pharmacy site, we don’t find a Russian address. In fact, they don’t give any business address whatsoever.
Should you really trust the pharmacy that isn’t willing to reveal their business location? It certainly makes them look more like a scam and puts customers more at risk.
The pharmacy doesn’t display any regulatory seals on its site. This is far from ideal and could mean that they do not stick to any regulations in the operation of their store.
LegitScript has taken a look at this pharmacy. However, their reports on the store aren’t complimentary. They rate the pharmacy as a rogue business, lacking the appropriate approvals to be selling their pills where they do. This means, for example, that they don’t meet the regulatory standards for selling medicines in the USA.
The pharmacy offers a fairly good range of treatments for their customers. Product categories include the following:
- Men’s health drugs
- Acne treatments
- Immune boosters
- Alpha blockers
The pharmacy does provide some information about who has manufactured their generic meds, but the prices on the site are far from the cheapest offered online. We also aren’t told where the pills are dispensed from.
Without this information, we cannot be sure that the meds are dispensed reliably. This could lead to the wrong strength of pills being dispensed to customers, for example.
The pharmacy does state that they require a valid prescription to be emailed or faxed to them. This is good, and what we would expect from a legit pharmacy, however, we have some doubts.
Based on the other things we have discovered about this drugstore, there have to be some doubts about whether they actually follow their prescription policy. Chances are, that they simply allow their customers to purchase whatever pills they order, without first checking they have a valid prescription.
The checkout pages of the store are secured with a valid SSL certificate. The store provides payment through PayPal, with the following options:
- American Express
Delivery is via courier and will cost you $35. They claim a shipping time of up to 4 weeks thanks to the pandemic. However, shipping is free when you spend more than $200 on the drugstore.
The pharmacy does provide a testimonials page with a few Trusted-Medications.com reviews. There are only three customer comments on that page, and there is a rather obvious problem with them.
As we have previously shown, the pharmacy is extremely new. The pharmacy could have only been online since December 2020, but the feedback given on the testimonials page is all dated March 28, 2018.
This strongly suggests that these testimonials are fake, likely written by the same person for a different pharmacy. A different pharmacy name is mentioned in one of the testimonials. ReliableRx is mentioned in one of the comments instead of the name of this drugstore.
The name of this pharmacy shows that the owners of the site want people to trust them. When we look at the details of this drugstore, we find a little reason to give them our trust.
They have no regulatory approval to operate, they don’t provide business information, and their customer feedback is for an entirely different pharmacy. There isn’t any way that we can recommend this store to anyone.
