At first glance, I already know what to make of this site. The feel of the site is familiar with the other sites I have reviewed. Is it just me, or does it seem to anyone else that there is a certain pattern characteristic to most fictitious sites? I still have to investigate further, but again, hotpharmacy.net is literally in the same format as the other sites I have busted.
Well, according to the site, it had been up and running since 2005. Again, there is no mention where the site is currently based, but the numbers posted (+1 866 978 68 81/+1 718 355 84 84) are toll free numbers from USA. There is no address though, and I take it as a red flag, as online businesses without physical addresses are, at most times, con sites.
Reviewing a number of sites, I am seeing this pattern category for meds they are selling. Almost all of the sites had similar products, ADHD meds, allergy meds, anti-depression/anti-anxiety, men and women’s health, hair loss, weight loss, and the works. This site had them too, with a few additions of other categories, but still the same roster.
As with my main concern, the ED medication, the site only a handful; five types, to be exact. They only have the famous Sildenafil, Tadalafil, Dapoxetine, Kamagra, and Lovex. The site only vends generics, but does not claim that it does. It is quite misleading that the site has the photo of Viagra for their product, but there was no mention that it is the brand the site is specifically selling. Yes, Viagra in itself is approved by the FDA, but since the site did not disclose the brand they are selling, I think that the meds are still experimental generics, and will fall under the FDA-pending-for-approval category.
For the prices, they are cheap. Sildenafil 100 mg is at $32 per 10 tablets. They currently have a “38% off sale”, so there is a crossed-out $52 amount beside the new price. They offer the tablets in 30s, 60s, 90s, 120s, and 180s too, with prices getting lower as the quantities go higher. Tadalafil, on the other hand, costs $60 for the 20 mg tablets in 30s, and $97 for the 40 mg in 30s. They also sell Tadalafil by the bulk, as consumers can choose if they are going to buy by 30s, 60s, 90s, 120s, and 180s. As for the brands the site sells them by, there is no mention, so I’m guessing that after shipment and delivery, I’ll just get a surprise brand for my ED meds. If I am going to order. IF.
The site takes payments by credit or debit card only, via VISA, MasterCard, Amex, and Discover. I appreciate the fact that the delivery times are indicated in the site, and it is between 12 to 16 days via Registered Airmail. The rates are not indicated however, which I kind of not like, so I tried mock purchasing to see how much it would cost. But, I wasn’t able to figure it out, because the site is too clever to ask for my payment details early on in the order before proceeding to give the quote for the shipping fee. Well, no thanks Hot Pharmacy, I’ll just leave your shipping rates to my imagination than be charged of your products first.
Sadly, there is no information regarding product refunds and returns, so if in any event I am dissatisfied with the products or in the event of non-delivery, I don’t kind of have a hold to the company. For sites like this one, I usually refrain from ordering, because I might just be throwing my money or giving the site a free pass to swindle me.
As for the customer support, the company has email support, and no live chat support, but placed phone numbers for clients to contact, which are +1 866 978 68 81 and +1 718 355 84 84, respectively. What amused me is that those are the same contact numbers for the (missing) site I have previously reviewed, ordernorx.com. No two companies should have the same contact number. This is an indication that something else is going on here. I am discouraged to order from this site.
The site had positive in-site reviews from a few clients. There was Tristan from Florida, praising the customer service that the site gave him, and also mentioning that the product he received was properly packed and dispatched quickly. The other one, Peter, from Ohio, related that he tried the site based on a recommendation from a friend, and that he was glad that he found a “reliable” supplier.
But despite these pleasant reviews, I personally would not dare venturing in a deal with this site, as reviews like these can easily be made-up. I still trust the ratings of third-party sites regarding the evaluation of online pharmacies like hotpharmacy.net.
Hotpharmacy Reviews 2016:
Scam Adviser had always been my best friend regarding the bust of scam sites. And this time, again, Scam Adviser confirmed my intuition that this site is untrustworthy. It is 0% safe, as rated by Scam Adviser. The hosting location is correct though, hotpharmacy.net is based in US. But it does not mean that it is safe to use. Well, I couldn’t agree more with this result from Scam Adviser.
Hot Pharmacy Coupon Codes:
Hotpharmacy.net does not have coupon codes for consumers, but they do have current discount offers in-site. For example, they are currently having a 38% off sale for the ED meds. And they are offering discounts for bulk purchases, which could actually save a lot of cash, if ever I am to order my ED meds from them.
