These websites have similar interfaces. Some look the same and have gone to the same lengths like Openrxshop to hide their identity, promote the same products and focus on the same selling points, i.e., website security and buying drugs without a prescription. Furthermore, these suspect sites can be traced to countries known to be high-risk areas for online pharmacy fraud. Furthermore, scamadviser also indicates that the site has a hidden location besides being Netherlands-based.

The site’s affiliation with “scammy” sites and efforts to hide important information such as location create suspicion.


Business profile

On the website’s homepage, there is no official business name given. Furthermore, there is no official email address on the contact page. Instead, customers are supposed to fill in a contact form.
The owner of openrxshop remains unknown. The little information they have provided is scanty and questionable featuring a variety of countries flagged as popular locations for scam site operations.


Regulatory approval

Every pharmacy needs to be regulated to operate legally. Some of the world’s notable online pharmacy regulators include; LegitScript and Pharmacy Checker. Despite the fact that Open rx shop has seals of approval from notable agencies, LegitScript has labeled the pharmacy ROGUE! This simply means that LegitScript has conducted an independent review and confirmed openrxshop doesn’t meet online pharmacy verification standards.

The drugstore also has a BBB seal on the homepage that can’t be authenticated. It forces us to conclude that the regulatory status is questionable.

The pharmacy isn’t a member of other notable pharmacy regulators like CIPA and NABP!



The drugstore seems to focus on men and women sexual health products which are a common target among rogue pharmacy websites today. What’s also shocking is you don’t need a prescription to buy drugs. The pharmacy has gone to great lengths to appear secure for orders. They also state that they don’t sell generic drugs; however, the site’s links to countries like Thailand suggest otherwise.

The online pharmacy might have a great selection of drugs; however, there is no way of verifying the source and quality of drugs.



One notable characteristic of rogue online pharmacies is their unbelievable discounts. Openrxshop markets itself as a seller of top quality discount medication. The drugstore also offers quick and free shipping globally as well as quick refunds or product replacement.

Our investigations have revealed such pricing strategies are used to lure unsuspecting customers to part with their hard-earned money without thinking twice.


Openrxshop Reviews

Like most rogue websites, openrxshop has fake reviews to create the impression that past customers are happy with their products and service. Although positive feedback about the site is scarce, we can confirm that any such feedback is unverifiable and probably FAKE!

For instance, the pharmacy has received what looks like an endorsement from, a website which has been labeled Rogue by LegitScript. Such an endorsement doesn’t count. Furthermore, is known for offering misleading endorsements.
