Domain Name Information
The Whois domain name record shows that this website address has been registered since 2008 and doesn’t expire until 2024. Domains with a longer history and expiration date tend to suggest that the store is less likely to be a scam.
The domain is registered with a Chinese registrar and domain privacy has been used so that the name and address of the owner aren’t in the record.
Domain Name History
When researching this domain name we discovered an article on the LegitScript site about this pharmacy. The article is highlighting a problem with the contact details previously given in the Whois domain name record.
Fake names were repeatedly used to register this website address. At one point the domain was even registered in the name George W. Bush. Multiple name changes like this suggest that this store is a scam operated by people looking to rip off customers.
Business Contact Details
The address given on this website is 500 Oxford Street, Bondi Junction, New South Wales, Australia. This is the address of a large shopping mall. The mall is home to many well-known stores. When we check though, we can’t find the name OzPills on the list of the businesses in the shopping mall.
Since the business isn’t found on the owner of the mall’s website, it is clear that this is a fake address. We don’t really know if this business is actually based in Australia at all. The fact that they are using a Chinese domain name registrar could point to this pharmacy being operated from China.
There is nothing on this online pharmacy to suggest any form of regulation is used by this store to keep customers safe. A check with LegitScript shows that this drugstore is classified as a rogue pharmacy.
As this store claims to be Australia’s number 1 online pharmacy, you would be forgiven for thinking that the drugs are dispensed in Australia. This isn’t the case, however, with the drugs really being dispatched from India.
Most of the drugs on sale on this site should be covered with a prescription, due to the potential risk the pills can have to some people. This pharmacy doesn’t require a prescription, putting the lives of their customers in danger.
The lack of prescription requirement and the pills coming from India are two high-risk practices commonly found with scam online pharmacies. This also raises the fear that the drugs would be low-quality or fake and manufactured in unregulated conditions.
Payment and Shipping
You can pay using Visa and Mastercard and the store is secure with a valid certificate.
Shipping is by express mail and takes 1 to 2 weeks to arrive in Australia. Shipping costs $22.50 USD and if free on orders over $150.
There is a testimonial page on the pharmacy for OzPills.com reviews. Around 30 very positive customer feedback can be found on this page.
We haven’t been able to find evidence that these customer testimonials are fake, though from what we already know about this drugstore, it wouldn’t be surprising. Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to find customer feedback on independent review sites, which are normally more believable.
This pharmacy also has a page on their site which is trying to alert customers to fake testimonials. They say that it has come to their attention that fake customer feedback which is negative of the store, is being produced by their competitors to discredit them. It seems that this is unlikely, rather the negative reviews they speak of are genuine and this page is just trying to limit the damage.
This online pharmacy makes great claims to be the number 1 Australian online pharmacy, but we have been unable to confirm that they are really in Australia. They are using an address which isn’t where they are actually located and have a history of using fake information in the domain name records. The pills aren’t dispensed in Australia and are really of Indian origin.
It is for these reasons, that we have to award this pharmacy just 1 star out of 5. This is a scam pharmacy which may be operated from China.
