Domain Information

Sometimes the domain name information for an online pharmacy can show details that the owner of the site would rather you not know. When looking at the information for this store we can see that the name was registered in 2016 and doesn’t expire until 2021. This isn’t a particularly long time for a store to have been operating and could point towards this store being a Scam.

work since 2016

We can also see that a domain privacy service has been used to make sure that the real details of ownership aren’t shown in the records. The domain registrar is based in Pakistan and this often gives some indication to the real location of the owner. Why would you register using a Pakistan registrar if you aren’t actually in that country?

Web Platform

They seem to be using a brand name for their site which they don’t own. This is rather dubious business practice and could lead to them having their domain name taken away from them at some point. You don’t find brand names being used by reputable businesses which don’t own them for this and other legal reasons.

Business Name and Address

This store doesn’t have a normal ‘Contact Us’ page as you would expect to find, instead, they have a ‘Talk to Us’ page which only contains an online form. There isn’t the business name or address on this page or in the footer section of the site as you often find.

We have, however, been able to find a business name and address hidden in the terms and conditions of the site. This is far from ideal and reputable businesses don’t normally feel the need to bury their company information like this.


When we check this address, it does appear to be a genuine location, but not for a pharmacy as you might have expected. There is a consulting business located at this address. They offer a number of different services to businesses including a virtual office service.

This business seems to be using a mailbox from this consulting company and this prevents us knowing where they genuinely operate this online pharmacy from.

Related Stores

The business name shown in the terms and conditions is ‘Arv Consulting LP’ and references to this name are only found on other similar online pill sellers. We haven’t been able to find this name in any official government databases which could suggest that this isn’t a genuine business name.

The related stores all seem to offer the same products and use mostly the same graphics.

Legal Approvals and Certifications


As we have previously shown, this business claims to be operating under the governing law of the United Kingdom. This requires them to also follow the EU rules as well as the UK laws for the selling of medication online. They have to display the common European distance selling logo on all of their pages which offer medicine for human consumption.

This logo should then link to the MHRA government agency database so that you can validate their registration. However, this important logo is not found anywhere on the pharmacy site. This means that they aren’t operating within the law in Europe or the UK.

Unsurprisingly, when we check the database from the MHRA we find no results for this website. This confirms that they aren’t operating this business within the law for a UK business.


When we look to LegitScript for their assessment we can see that they have concluded that this store is a rogue enterprise that is operating in violation of the law.


Medications on Sale

As the name of the store would suggest, they specialize in men’s health drugs. They only sell generic versions and the pills are dispatched from India.


Prescription Requirements

This pharmacy doesn’t require a valid prescription in order to purchase any of the drugs they offer. This is certainly against the law in the country they claim to be based in, the UK, and clearly suggests that this is a scam pharmacy operation. Coupon

We haven’t had access to any good coupon codes for this online drugstore.

Customer Support

This drugstore provides a help center for customers. This is basically just an FAQ divided up into different sections and could be of some help to customers who have a complaint with the store.

Beyond the help center they have only an online form, but no other means of contact. They don’t provide a business phone number and the address we have previously located is unlikely to get you anywhere quickly.

Payment and Deliveries

This store’s checkout pages are secure with a valid SSL certificate and they also have additional protection from Norton’s Shopping Guarantee. They accept payment via Mastercard, Visa and Bitcoin.

Delivery is by express mail service which should see packages arrive in 7 to 10 for US addresses and 10 to 21 days for the rest of the world. Express costs $39 which includes tracking and standard costs $29. Free shipping is offered on orders above the value of $150, despite some mentions of this being available when spending $80. Reviews and Testimonials


The store is very happy to direct your attention to their reviews. They have nearly 900 customer testimonials and this would appear to be very good at first glance.

However, the vast majority of these testimonials are actually reviews of particular drugs rather than testimonials about the pharmacy itself. Out of all of the testimonials, only two of them are about the store, and one of them is Fake, used to promote an affiliate link.


The single remaining testimonial appears to be genuine and gives the pharmacy top ratings.


This online store claims to be operating from the UK and operating under the governing law in that country. We have clearly seen that this isn’t actually the case, instead, they are either in India or Pakistan. We have not been able to narrow their location down any further than that, unfortunately.

This kind of deception, lack of transparency and regulation is common with scam pharmacies.

We, therefore, award 1.2 out of five stars to this drugstore.
