Products on Offer
There is a fairly decent range of medicines on offer, though it is clearly geared towards selling men’s health treatments. Even though brand name drugs seem to be on offer, they aren’t. The store only sells generic pills, as stated on their ‘questions’ page. This is a very deceptive way of selling drugs.
Domain Name Information
The domain records show us that this website name was registered over 5 years ago. A website this old can often suggest that the business is less likely to be a scam, after all, a site which is ripping people off isn’t likely to be around for too long. The records also reveal that a privacy protection service is being used to hide the owner’s details. This protection service gives a UK address but appears to actually be a German company.
This website suggests that this is a London based online pharmacy but gives customers no address or business name. The only thing on the site, aside from the name, which points to a business location is a mention of India in the questions section of the site. It is impossible to know for sure the real location of this business.
As this online pharmacy pretends to be based in the UK, they should there be following the rules for selling medicine online in Europe. The rules mean that this company needs to be registered with a government agency, which in this case would be the MHRA. When checking the MHRA database we find that they aren’t found.
They should also be displaying the common European distance selling logo on every page where medicine for human consumption is offered for sale. This logo is not to be found anywhere on the site.
The European rules also require medicine to be dispensed from a real pharmacy, the name and address of which should be easily found on the site. There is no mention of the dispensing pharmacy anywhere on the site. In fact, it seems likely that medicine is actually sent from India.
These breaches in the rules mean that this site is operating illegally.
A check with LegitScript.com highlights this point. They classify this online pharmacy as a rogue business.
Payment and Shipping
Drugs can be purchased from this store using the following credit cards: Visa, Mastercard, Diners Club, American Express and JCB.
Your shipping choices are either registered mail which costs $15 or express mail for twice the price. Express mail has a delivery time of up to 15 days and provides a tracking number. Registered mail could have you waiting for a month before you receive your medication. Free registered delivery is available on orders over $140.
There is a delivery insurance charge of $9.95 as well. This insurance seems like an unnecessary cost which has been created to earn more from the customer.
Feedback from customers is a great way for you to find out if the online pharmacy, that you are about to buy from, can be trusted. Knowing what other people think about the business can save you from making a costly purchasing mistake or help you be reassured about your order.
When looking at this site, we find that they don’t have a page for GreaterLondonPharmacy.com reviews. This is probably a good thing because it would likely be a page filled with made up customer feedback and not the genuine reviews you would expect.
We haven’t been able to find any customer reviews for this drugstore. There is a page on Trustpilot, but it has no reviews. It is rather surprising that no reviews are found for this website considering how long they have been operating for.
What this means is, you can’t look at other people’s experiences to find out how well this company performs. Do you really want to take an unknown risk with this online store when buying medicine?
This website seems to be lying about where it is based and has no regulatory approval to operate regardless of its real location. The people behind this business have really gone out of their way to hide their real business location. They are giving us no reason to trust the reliability of their scam site, which is why we can only give them 1-star out of five.
