The domain name records show us that this address has been used for quite a while. It was registered in 2015 and doesn’t expire until 2020. This would point more towards a successful and reliable online store. However, the contact details of the whoever registered the site have been hidden from the records.
Business Contact Information
Reputable online pharmacies wouldn’t feel the need to hide their contact information from customers. On this site, no address can be found but there is a business name. The name ‘Canadian Pharmacy Ltd.’ and when you check with the Canadian Government database we find that there is no exact match for this company. The only result is a business with a similar name that was dissolved years ago.
Ultimately, we don’t know who operates this business or where they are really based.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen sites just like this. We’re not talking about pharmacies which are similar, we are talking about identical sites. This store has the same products, same prices and same text as many other online pharmacies.
Regulatory approvals are something you should check on before making an online drug purchase. Regulation is in place to make sure online pill sellers keep their business to a high standard and should ensure that the drugs are dispensed safely from a pharmacy.
This site features seals from many regulatory associations and security companies. You should be able to click on these seals to go to the associations’ site for more information. The seals here are grayed out and they don’t link anywhere. When we check, we aren’t surprised to find that these seals are used fraudulently.
LegitScript.com reviews online pharmacies to check if they are adhering to the rules and legislation they should be. They confirm what we had already assumed, that this online drugstore isn’t sticking to the rules. LegitScript rates Cheap-Rx.com as a rogue pharmacy website.
Drugs on Offer
There isn’t really that great a selection of drug treatments offered by this pharmacy. The focus of the site is clearly towards selling men’s health pills. They have several special offers providing free pills from the top brands in men’s health drugs.
Though the site claims that they sell both generic and brand name pills we have our doubts. Firstly, it seems unlikely that they can sell well-known brands at so far below the prices you find at established stores. Secondly, it is also unlikely they would be so keen to give away brand name products for free. It seems highly likely that the brand name pills on the site are really counterfeit versions.
You can use credit cards to buy your medication from this store. The store itself doesn’t have a security certificate and it would be dangerous to enter financial information there. When you go through the buying process the store sends you to a different site which does have more security.
Shipping options are either airmail or express mail. Airmail is charged at $9.95 with an expected delivery time of 2 to 3 weeks. Express mail is a lot quicker with delivery in about a week, it does cost $19.95 though, but includes tracking. Free shipping is available on orders of $200.
There is an additional charge added during the checkout sequence for shipping insurance at the cost of $4.95. They do not tell you about this charge before getting to the final checkout page. Whilst you can opt out of this added fee it does seem like a rather deceptive process.
If you are unsure how reliable a website that you want to buy from is going to be, a helpful place to start is the opinions of other customers. Customer reviews can be great in stopping you making expensive mistakes, unfortunately, there can be problems with fake reviews posted to pharmacy sites. This is done by the owners of the site because they know it will increase sales.
When looking at the Cheap-Rx.com reviews found on this site we can see that they are indeed fake. They are copied from somewhere else just like the rest of the site.
With doubts about the reliability of the drugs on offer and no real information about where the drugs are dispensed from, we can only give this site 1-star. The domain name information looked good at first, but it was all downhill after that. Don’t waste your time with this online pill seller there are better choices out there.
