Online Pharmacy Scams

Have you ever received an email boasting of great prices from an online pharmacy? Buyer beware! Many times these pharmacies operate outside of the U.S. and can take advantage of the lack of consumer protection laws. Many times these pharmacies will offer prescription drugs without a prescription, or offer to get you a prescription from one of there own doctors. The problem occurs when the drug you have received will be diluted, poor quality, medications that have been tainted, or are different drug all together. Some of these websites will start ripping you off by asking for a small membership fee, and some very personal secure information. With the prices for prescription drugs skyrocketing it is not a surprise that we would all look for better prices, but lets not forget that some deals are to good to be true! Here is a list of things to look for when using an online Pharmacy:

  1. Make sure there is a physical address and phone number for the Pharmacy.
  2. They boast of “No doctors prescription needed”,” or we will obtain one for you”.
  3. Prices are unbelievable low.
  4. Uses spam emailing.
  5. Always check the credit card processing page has a https in front of the page address (the S stands for Secure and it must contain the S).
