Domain Name Information
A review of the domain name database for this pharmacy site shows they haven’t been online for much time. A pharmacy that has been in business for under a year has a greater chance of being a scam in our experience.
Location details within the database show that the owner is located in Hong Kong. We aren’t given more information than this, and these details might only refer to the location of the registrar as well.
Business Contact Details
When we check for a business address on the pharmacy site, we don’t find anything. This isn’t good and increases the chances that this pharmacy is in fact a scam.
Without a business name or contact address, making a complaint against this pharmacy will be more difficult. You simply won’t know which government organization should be overseeing the pharmacy, for example.
The drugstore doesn’t have any regulatory seals to prove that they are following accreditation standards. While they do say that the pills are from FDA-approved companies, you shouldn’t simply trust the word of anonymous people online. If they provide some supporting evidence to back this up we could check, but they don’t.
Searching for this domain name on LegitScript shows that they are considered to be a rogue. This isn’t good and indicates that they do not have the correct regulatory approvals to be selling their products in the countries that they do.
Most of the products being sold on this pharmacy site are generic and consequently cheaper. When we look at the product pages, there are clearly some details missing.
They fail to mention who has manufactured the drugs, and we still have no idea where they are dispensed from. Both of these problems naturally lead to concerns over the quality of the medications they are selling.
Low-quality medications frequently don’t contain the correct quantity of active ingredients you need. This could lead to either under or over-treatment of your condition, creating more health problems than you already have.
The pharmacy seems to offer a reasonable range of generic medications, and their prices appear to be fairly low. Their product range includes:
- Men’s health drugs
- Pain relief
Payment and Shipping
Paying for your medications takes place on a different website. On this other website, they do have basic security and claim more advanced protection through Comodo and McAfee. The logos from those security companies aren’t clickable, so we can’t confirm they are valid and probably aren’t.
You can choose to pay for your medications through the following platforms:
- Diners Club
- American Express
This pharmacy will ship your medications to you via either airmail or courier. Airmail is the cheaper of the two options costing $10, and is also slower, taking up to 30 days to be delivered. Airmail deliveries are free when you spend more than $200 at the pharmacy.
Courier delivery costs $30 and includes tracking, though it isn’t that much faster. They quote a delivery time of between 10 and 21 business days, perhaps suggesting that the medications are dispatched from India.
Though it isn’t easy to find, there is a testimonials page for Dr-Cheap.com reviews. The link to this page can only be found on the sitemap, and the testimonials themselves aren’t exactly impressive either.
While they give a good account of the pharmacy, we strongly believe that these are fake customer comments. For example, one of the dozens of customer comments gives a date in 2015 for when they received their medical order. When we know that this pharmacy site has been online for only a year, this customer feedback cannot be related to the service provided by this store.
We have found and hopefully shown, this isn’t a great pharmacy and we consider it a scam. We give it 1 star, with the biggest problems being lack of accreditation, lack of transparency, and fake feedback.
There is a good chance that pills sold by this pharmacy aren’t very good quality, so you should avoid using this store.
