Domain Name Details
The domain records tell us that this site is quite old for an online pharmacy, being registered 4 years ago. This may suggest a more reliable online store. Scam drugstores tend not to be around for very long before being closed by authorities, but some slip through the net.
The records show that they are using a privacy protection service to make sure their registration details aren’t in the publicly available records.
You should be able to find the contact details for the people who operate this site. Other than some phone numbers for the US and the UK, which could point anywhere, there are no contact details. There is also no sign of a business name on the site. Presumably, they are based in India but there isn’t much evidence for this beyond the website address.
The server hosting the site is in Lebanon and the nameservers are in Bulgaria. This may suggest the location of the owners, but it is impossible to be sure.
Regulatory approvals are a way for online pharmacies to prove they are sticking to the rules and handle their operations in a professional manner. This also means that they will have pharmacist oversight for the dispensing of drugs which gives you some protection from counterfeit medication.
The ‘About Us’ page says that they stick to all the applicable laws and that they are 100% legal. They, however, show no evidence of having any regulatory approval for where ever in the world they are based. Perhaps there are no laws surrounding online pharmacies where they are based, but this doesn’t exactly fill you with confidence.
This site has been investigated by LegitScript.com and has been given the rating of a rogue pharmacy. They believe the site is breaking the law by selling drugs in markets where they don’t have the legal right to.
Medication on Offer
They have a fairly good selection of medication available on this site. The drugs available are all generic and manufactured in and sent from India, as the website name would suggest. They don’t sell brand name pills and pretend they do like so many other scam drugstores we’ve seen. However, India is one of the hot-spots for fake medication manufacturing, so pills from this site may not contain the active ingredients they should.
This online pharmacy offers quite a few special offers to entice you to complete an order and make further purchases in the future. They will also give you a 5% discount if you are willing to take a customer survey.
Payment and Shipping
Drugs can be purchased using credit cards and Bitcoin. When want to buy you are taken to a different site to complete the checkout process. This new site has a security certificate which is better than the main store which is insecure.
Airmail costs $10, you can expect delivery in up to 21 days. Courier delivery includes tracking and costs $30, but delivery is up to 9 days. There is free airmail shipping on orders over $150.
If you want to find out if an online pharmacy is a good place to buy your medication, reviews from previous customers is a good place to look. Independent reviews will tell you the things that the website would rather you not know. You can often find customer reviews posted to the online pharmacy sites, these aren’t going to be negative reviews as the site chooses what to post.
IndiaGenericMeds.net reviews feature heavily on this site with a section on the front page and a dedicated testimonial page. The site seems to have amassed a lot of positive reviews in the past four years, with over 30 reviews found on the testimonial page.
One of the reviews states that they made an order in 2006, which is quite surprising as the site began in 2014. The reason for this is that these reviews are completely fake. A quick search on a section of the first review shows over 8,000 web page results.
Despite the name of the website giving a location, there is no real evidence that this is where this business is based. They have no regulatory approval to operate and the main store doesn’t have a security certificate. They are also using fake reviews and for these reasons we only give them 1-star out of 5.
