Mexicanpharmacyprices.com, the online pharmacy, which apparently began operations in 2005, allegedly ships pharmaceutical products directly from licensed manufacturers in Mexico to customers. The company reported that it is licensed and that its products are tested before being distributed to customers.
|Origin Country||United States|
|Pharmacy Name||Mexican Export Pharmacy|
|Licenses, and Approvals|
The pharmacy domain was registered on January 24th, 2010, which is five years later than the company claims. The domain was last updated on January 23rd, 2022, indicating that the update was for renewal because of how close the update was to its expiration date. If this assumption is correct, the renewal was only for a year, with the expiration date set for January 24th, 2023.
The online pharmacy’s domain age, which is 12 years at the time of writing, is a good indicator of the company’s legitimacy. However, the registration period is only one year, with the domain set to expire in 2023. This raises concerns about the legitimacy of the company because a one-year renewal does not demonstrate a long-term commitment on the part of the company. While the domain registration length already raises fear about the business’s legitimacy, the website has no SSL certificate, meaning customers’ personal information isn’t secure.
In addition to the pharmacy domain’s registration and expiration dates, we also looked for information on the owner. Unfortunately, there isn’t because the data is guarded by a third party, Privacy Protect, LLC. The domain’s anonymity, as well as its short length of registration, are red flags, regardless of whether the domain has been registered for years.
Mexican Export Pharmacy stated that its headquarters are located at 1214 Reese St., Houston, TX 77012, USA. Its warehouse was reported to be situated at Durango 272, Roma Norte, 06700 México, Distrito Federal, Mexico. However, the building depicted on the pharmacy website representing the pharmacy headquarters is incorrect and misleading. The closest structure to the reported address is an apartment building. The physical addresses added to the pharmacy website are fictitious because they do not correspond to the website’s images. Furthermore, the company reported 30 employees, but there is no mention of their identities.
There is a lot of misleading information about the company, which only shows the anonymity of the business. As a result, the online pharmacy should not be trusted for medical needs.
This online pharmacy is expected to have regulatory approval from reputable bodies considering that it has been in existence for over a decade. The databases of LegitScript and the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP), two of the leading regulatory bodies, were checked to determine the company’s regulatory status.
The pharmacy e-store was rated “rogue” by LegitScript. In addition, the online drugstore is on NABP’s “Not Recommended List.” The online pharmacy’s rating by these two bodies showed that it is unsafe and its practices illegal and misleading. As a result, it is recommended that health medications not be purchased on the pharmacy website.
Products and Pricing
Different categories of medications can be found on the pharmacy website. Some of them are:
■ Men’s health
■ Pain Relief
■ Cholesterol, etc.
The products are reported to be reasonably priced with significant discounts.
A credit card appears to be the only payment option on the online drugstore’s checkout page. The accepted credit cards include:
■ American Express
■ Diners Club
Shipping and Delivery
Airmail costs $10 for all orders under $200, otherwise, it is free, although the website stated that free shipping comes with orders starting at $300. Delivery of products takes between 1-3 weeks.
Trackable service costs $30. Delivery is between 1-3 weeks.
There are no customer reviews on the pharmacy’s website. Furthermore, reviews of the company and its products or services are not available on independent review platforms such as Trustpilot or Reviews.io. Given that the company has been in operation for over ten years, the lack of a review is yet another reason why medications should not be purchased through the website.
The illegitimacy of the pharmacy e-store is evident in its insecure website, the anonymity of its domain and business, and unfavorable ratings by LegitScript and NABP. Taking these factors into account, the pharmacy e-store is deemed a scam and receives 25% of trust.
