The domain record for this website address shows that this name was registered in 2015. Domains which are more recent can be a warning sign for scam pharmacies because understandably, they don’t tend to stay online for long, once they become better known and draw the attention of authorities.
The domain record also tells us that the owner of the site is in Russia and gives the organization as ‘SeoMas’. This organization name doesn’t seem like a legit business and we are unable to find reference to it in official databases.
It is immediately obvious to us that this online pharmacy isn’t likely to be very reliable. The reason for this is that the logo used on the site bears no similarity to the domain name of the pharmacy. The domain name is Ph24h but the site logo says “Online Pharmacy”, and this is often found with scam online pharmacies.
The logo doesn’t match the domain name because this site template will have been uploaded to many different servers using many different domain names. Needless to say, this isn’t an indication of a trustworthy and reliable drugstore.
Business Name and Address
The owner of this pharmacy claims that they are one of the leading drugstores online. Despite this, they don’t seem to want to provide customers with a contact address or business name. This is a common problem we find with scam online pharmacies and it isn’t a good sign for this site either.
This online pharmacy displays seals from some regulatory associations. However, there is a rather large problem with these seals.
Two of the best well-known Canadian based regulatory associations are CIPA and MIPA. Though the seals on this site may appear to be from those associations, they are not. In fact, the MIPA logo is from a German paint company, it even says “Professional Coating Systems” on the logo.
The CIPA seal is completely wrong too. The real seals look rather different.
Unsurprisingly, this drugstore doesn’t have genuine membership with these associations. When we check with CIPA they are not found in the database.
This online pharmacy has been investigated by LegitScript to assess whether they are operating legally among other factors. Their finding is that this store is a ‘rogue’ business, not operating within the rules for the countries they sell their products to.
Medications on Sale
This store seems to offer a fairly good range of pills, though their bestsellers are men’s health pills. The prices are very cheap and they sell both brand and generic versions of drugs.
They like to use the brand names to sell generics and this is a frequent problem found with online pharmacies which are ripping off customers. They use this confusion to try to sell more drugs and to make their products look like a better deal.
This confusion also increases the likelihood that the brand name pills are going to be counterfeit rather than the genuine article. The thinking behind this conclusion is because if they are willing to call a generic pill a brand name, where will they stop?
The drugs are manufactured in India according to the FAQ, and they say that the manufacturers also dispatch the pills direct to you. They don’t provide any information about who the manufacturers are or if they are following any regulations to make sure the medicine is safe.
The FAQ page says that if the medication you require should have a prescription, you will be asked to send it to them after you place your order. In reality, though, we sincerely doubt this ever happens, and you can actually order whatever you want regardless if you have a valid prescription or not. No prescription requirement is a pattern found with scam pharmacies.
We don’t have any coupon for this store.
Payments and Deliveries
When you try to place an order on this store you are redirected to a different site to fill out your payment information. This site is secure with a valid SSL certificate and payment is via either Visa or Mastercard.
The delivery options are standard airmail and EMS. Airmail will cost $9.95 with delivery in 14 to 21 business days. EMS costs $29.95 and you can expect delivery to be in less than 9 days. Free standard shipping is made available when your order costs $200 or more.
This store does show policies for cancellations and refunds, which is good to find. You need to contact customer support if you are looking for a refund or to cancel your order and they have a form and a phone number for this.
These limited methods of contacting the support staff, suggest that your complaint might be difficult to resolve. The fact that they don’t want to tell you who they are, also adds to this belief.
It is always a good idea, when looking at a new store, to check out what previous customers have to say. When we check the Ph24h.com reviews found on the testimonials page of this store we find that they have a lot of great feedback.
From what we have already found out about this store, we know not to take for granted that these customer testimonials are real. We can do a search on part of one of the comments to find out if it appears elsewhere online.
The results show that this comment is also found on over 90,000 other web pages and so this is highly unlikely to be an original and genuine customer testimonial.
The problems with this online store became apparent when we first glanced at the site logo, with things getting worse the more we found out.
They lack any regulation and are using fake seals which aren’t even the correct logos. We also haven’t been able to find any contact details for this business, though there is a suggestion that the owner is Russian.
We award 1.2 stars out of five.
It is our assessment that this isn’t a trustworthy place to buy your medication.
Possible alternativesWhile brick and mortar pharmacies are a safe bet any day, online pharmacies are better, cheaper and more convenient. There is a ton of pharmacies on the internet, and this ends up confusing the consumers, as they do not know who is legitimate and who is out for a quick back. This is where we come in; our experts are constantly scouring the internet, looking for pharmacies and evaluating them based on set criteria.
We provide highly relevant information about these pharmacies, which allows you to choose where to shop for your medication and decide what establishments to stay away from. Our content is periodically updated with information about both existing and upcoming online pharmacies.
