Crazyrxsales.com is an online drugs store which was registered in October 2016 and operates warehouses in Indian and Pakistan. The website belongs to an illegal affiliate program based in Russia and promises convenient free shipping worldwide and reduced cost of medication. They have a comprehensive list of categories of drugs including ED packs, Asthma relief, and management, sleeping aids, muscle relaxants, skin care & dermatology, blood pressure, diabetes, cancer among others. However, our analysis of the online drugstore shows that it is just another online scam.

The website’s registered owner is a company by the name Crazy RX Sales. The company’s physical or postal addresses are unknown and neither are their registration details and status known. This means that their customers engage in blind dealing which is an extremely risky approach for dealing with health issues. For example, in the event of complications due to poisoning, the customers have limited options to seek legal redress since they have no details of the counterparty.
A simple check on scamadviser.com shows that the website has 44% rating meaning that it is a medium-risk site but involving a high-risk country thus may not be safe for visiting. The site is indicated as based in Netherlands but may be from Russia.
The owner is using Whois Privacy Protection Foundation to hide their identity, organization, and location. Additionally, the server hosting this website also hosts 8 other suspicious websites dealing majorly with pharmaceutical supplies. This is a typical characteristic of scammers whereby they create multiple websites and host them on the same server.
Moreover, the online drugs store has more than ten mirror websites.
From the above, it is clear to us that the domain owners have gone to great lengths to mask their real identity. Why a business would go to such length is incomprehensible and could only point to one thing; an illegitimate dealer who cannot be trusted with such a sensitive issue as the health of its customers.
Compliance with regulatory bodies
After a comprehensive research with American, Canadian, European and other renowned registration and regulatory bodies, we established that the online drugs store does not have even a single one of the requisite licenses, certificates, and approvals from these bodies. None of these bodies have any details of an online pharmacy operating that domain. The image below shows our inquiry at MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency).
The questionable registration status and lack of proper regulatory approvals is a major red flag which makes it impossible for us to vouch for the authenticity of this drugs store and the efficacy of the drugs they supply.
Unlike other scammer pharmacies which have a limited product offering, Crazyrxsales.com has an extensive list of products making it appear like a legitimate drugs store. However, they still exhibit characteristics of online drugs scam. First is their obsession with sexual health and male enhancement drugs and weight-loss solutions.
Secondly, the website is an unethical drugs seller since they sell all drugs without a doctor’s prescription yet most drugs for the health conditions indicated on their homepage are prescription drugs. Any drug seller who engages in such behavior can go to any length to fleece their customers, including dealing in counterfeit drugs. They cannot be trusted.

Further, their extremely low pricing regime is another pointer to a suspicious dealer. While it is understood that they supply drugs from India where the patents for most drug companies do not apply, the prices offered are still too low compared to other drug stores with similar operations. This is a major flag for schemes out to use low prices to attract many people while either supplying no drugs at all or supplying counterfeits.
The website offers customer support through phone and email. However, they have no online order checking or live chat support making it extremely difficult for their customers to receive prompt online responses to their order and inquiries.
Crazyrxsales.com supplies drugs worldwide and although they source the drugs from India and Pakistan and operate warehouses in these two countries, the shipping is done from USA and India. They only deliver their drugs through standard airmail service or trackable Express Mail Service (EMS) and no FedEx, TNT or DHL. The website offers free shipping on all orders delivered via standard airmail but charges $25 for EMS orders
The website offers a secure payment platform by using the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and the website is accessible through HyperText Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS). However, the website presents no proof of PCI (Payment Card Industry) compliance meaning that although the transmission of the credit card data may be secure, there is a risk of unauthorized access during storage.
They only accept MasterCard and VISA payment locking out American Express, JCB, E-Check and Bitcoin customers.
Further, a research at Scamanalyze dot com reports the website is using an expired SSL certificate meaning that there the site is not secure for online payments.
This online store does not provide a platform for customer feedback. Further, the website does not have a testimonials page or comments section, similar to the one provided by other e-commerce sites like Amazon for customers to record their experiences using the products from the store.
A further online search for customer reviews and feedback bears no results. Moreover, Scamanalyze reports that the drugs store has zero activity on social media, an unusual thing in today’s world.
From the foregoing, it is our conclusion that Crazyrxsales.com has most of the characteristics of a scam. These include the deliberate attempt to hide the real business owners, lack of physical and postal address, lack of compliance with necessary regulatory and registration requirements. With a one-star rating, this is an online drugs store to avoid.
