Domain Name Information
We can see from the domain information that this pharmacy has been online for only just over a year. While this pharmacy could still be very reputable, it is more likely to be a scam based on our experience.
The pharmacy is using a domain privacy service based in the UK to hide their contact information. Though this could suggest a greater chance of the drugstore not being reputable, this isn’t necessarily the situation.
Looking on the pharmacy site and their contact page they do give an address. However, this address (123 Main Street, Anytown, CA12345) is obviously fake and designed as a placeholder until the pharmacy adds their real address.
The fact that this drugstore hasn’t filled in the correct address details doesn’t exactly give any confidence that they are carefully paying attention to the details.
There is a map on this page that pinpoints a location in London, UK. However, this address seems unlikely to be genuine since it is in a very prestigious part of London and is unlikely to be their genuine business location.
You would expect to see some regulatory seals indicating that the drugstore is following the rules. However, this pharmacy doesn’t display any regulatory seals on their website.
When checking with the LegitScript website, we can see that they consider this drugstore to be a rogue. This means that the pharmacy does not have the correct accreditation they need to stay on the right side of the law. It also means that any customer using the store is putting themselves at greater risk because of these failings.
This store offers a fairly limited range of pills. Main categories include:
■ Men’s health
■ Smart pills
■ Pain relief
Prices on the site are not the cheapest online but they do provide some information about who has manufactured the drugs. However, other important details are missing.
The pharmacy doesn’t tell us where these meds are dispensed from since we can’t believe the address they give on their contact page. This might mean that the medication sold on this pharmacy is dispatched from India, China, or Pakistan.
This increases the risk that the medication sold by the store is going to be low quality. Low-quality medicines might not contain that the ingredients you expect which could result in serious health problems getting worse.
The pharmacy does have the basic level of security you would expect to find on any retail store, and you can choose to pay through the following options:
■ Credit and debit cards
When you order above $249 of medicines from this pharmacy, shipping is free. If your order value isn’t that high, you can expect to pay $25 for delivery.
There are a few MedicScales.com reviews found within the product pages on the store. These appear to show that the pharmacy offers a great service to their customers, however, we have our doubts.
Looking at one pair of comments that were written on the same day, shows they have suspiciously similar errors. Both of these comments have inappropriately capitalized the first letter of words in the middle of sentences. They also read more like a marketing piece than a real piece of feedback.
The likelihood seems to be that these comments are written by the same person, and are fake. Typically scam pharmacies use fake customer comments to try and convince new buyers to part with their cash.
There are many problems uncovered in the details of this pharmacy that don’t indicate they are a good store to go to for your medical needs. They appear to be using a fake business address along with posting fake customer feedback to the site. They also don’t have any regulatory approval to be operating their business online.
There are many better online pharmacies than this one, and they would probably be cheaper as well. We give them 25% trust.
