Reviews – Operating Illegally

0.9 out of 5 stars


familiar interface is an online drugstore which tells us they have been in business for over 7 years. They also say that they will reship products for free if they go missing in transit. We have seen claims like these before but are they really true with this site? The answer seems to be no, continue reading to learn why.

Domain Information

The domain name information found in the Whois record for this site reveals that this address was created in 2017. We have found that most Scam pharmacies are operating on more recent domains, so a site which has been around for less than two years presents more of a risk.

work since 2017

We can also see that the owner of this store has decided to use a privacy service so that their name and address aren’t added to the domain name records. This is another potential indication that what we are dealing with here isn’t the most reliable of businesses.

location: US

Web Platform

There are some very obvious issues with this website. For one, we have seen this online pharmacy template many times before using different domain names. The other mirrors of this site were given suitably low ratings by us as they were found to be highly dubious operations.

There are many of these mirror sites and they include:

Another issue with this site is that the domain name does in no way match the site logo. This emphasizes the fact that this is a mirror site and is something that you wouldn’t expect to find from a reputable business site.

Business Name and Address

from the Czech Republic

There are a business name and address found on the contact page of the store. Ordinarily, you would expect this to be a good sign of a reputable business. The problem here is that this address and business name are fake.

They are also found on the other mirror sites as well as many other disreputable pharmacy stores. We assess this to be a fake business name as there isn’t a website for the business, which is surprising for a group, and they don’t show up in any official databases that we have found.

The address is a real office location but seems to be a mailbox facility rather than genuine offices for the Europharm Group.

Legal Approvals

This online drugstore claims to be in the Czech Republic and this means that they have to follow the EU’s rules for selling medication from their website. These rules include the displaying of the common European distance selling logo on every page which offers pills for sale.

They do not have this important logo anywhere on their store. This means that they are operating illegally in Europe. But the truth is they are probably not owned or operated by people who are actually in the Czech Republic.

Perhaps they don’t need to be regulated by the EU, in which case they are lying about where this business is based. Either they are operating illegally or they are lying, they can’t have it both ways.

a rogue pharmacy site

When we check with LegitScript we find that they consider this business to be in violation of the law. They have given them the lowest rating of a rogue online pharmacy.

Medications on Sale

men's health drugs

They are selling mostly generic pills but also say that they offer brand versions as well. The best sellers on the site seem to be men’s health drugs. This fact is highlighted by the free pills offered of that type when you place an order with them.

They seem to be dispatching the pills from India, though they fail to the state where in India exactly. This presents a risk of fake and low-quality meds being sold by this store.

Prescription Requirements

They don’t ask for a prescription when you order from this pharmacy. This indicates that this store isn’t sticking to the generally accepted rules which an online drugstore should be following. Coupon

We haven’t found any discount coupons for this pharmacy site, which isn’t the greatest loss based on what we have learnt about this store.

Payment and Shipping

When trying to complete the checkout process you find yourself moved to a different website to enter your payment information. We have found this issue frequently with mirror sites like this one. The webpage is, however, secure with a valid certificate and payment can be made using Paypal, Bitcoin and Mastercard.

Shipping is via either courier with a tracking number or airmail without. Airmail is expected to take up to 4 weeks to arrive and courier takes about a week. As you might expect courier delivery is more expensive at $24.95 over airmail at $14.95. Free airmail shipping is available on orders above $200 with free courier delivery when you spend more than $300.

free reship

They add an extra charge for insurance of $6.95 and though this is optional, it seems an unnecessary charge. Online retailers normally reship or refund if an order goes missing which is what this store says they do on their about page. So what is the point of this charge other than to earn them more money?

Customer Support

Considering what we have already discovered about this online pharmacy, we don’t think that customer support will be very good if you have any complaints. They provide an online form and a couple of phone numbers to contact them, and this is really the minimum we would expect to get help from support. Reviews and Testimonials

Reading positive customer feedback can be very reassuring when you are looking to purchase from a new pharmacy. When reading the reviews found on this pharmacy’s testimonial page, however, you shouldn’t feel reassured.


Though they provide lots of positive comments about the store they are, in fact, fake customer testimonials. They are also found on the other mirror stores and are totally fake.


There are many things wrong with this store and we don’t recommend you place an order with them. They are hiding who they really are and give fake business details to deceive customers. They have no regulation and don’t provide much information about where the pills are dispensed from.

It is our conclusion that a rating of just 0.9 out of 5 stars is justified for this pharmacy store.
