  • DrugBuyers

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors... pretends to be an unbiased forum where members are free to provide feedback for the various online pharmacies. However, they accept payment from various pharmacies in exchange for removing any unfavorable reviews. So the average readers thinks they are seeing all of the feedback when in fact they are seeing only carefully filtered feedback, manipulated to create the appearance the owner, ALEX wants the members to see, based on who is and who is not paying him do do so.

Members posting the truth about ripoff companies who are paying Alex for his 'protection' are banned and their posts are removed.

former user

AUTHOR: bunnyboo - (USA)

I was a former user of this site and did not realize that people could Google my username and find me on here. Well I use the same username at a few other places on the Internet so everybody who knows me by that username now knows what I have said on this site. I begged the admin to please delete my username from the database or at least change it.....they would not do it just to be nice, they would not even give me a reason, they either just said no or ignored my several emails. In fact the pharmacy I used figured out who I was on the forum (hmm wonder how) and they called me at home and told me to remove my negative comments about them, they sent me messages at as well telling me to remove my comments. They harassed me until i did.That freaked me out and that alone is good enough reason to delete that username and I begged Drugbuyers again to please remove that particular username from the database and I know they can do that because I run databases every single day. I am no longer a registered user but my username is still there and still shows up on Google. They could do it out of the kindness of their hearts considering they are suppose to be so sympathetic to people whom are suffering in pain and was looking for help from anyone who hear them. Google will not remove the cached pages either. I have not been to that site for almost 2 years, yet I am still showing up. you can do a nice thing still and remove that username.....So the rip-off here is that are not as sympathetic as they claim to be.

Drugbuyers is the only trustworthy site of its sort

AUTHOR: Klezmer - (United States of America)

I have known the Admin for many years and these complaints are simply sour grapes and wild distortions of the truth.

Alex, the site Admin is a decent, honest man who is consumed with keeping the board as honest as possible given all the scammers who worm their way onto the forums in an attempt to scam members.

There will always be a few people who try to undermine the success of someone like Alex who is running the most successful and credible site of its sort on the internet.

That is who you are hearing from in the above comments. is the only honest and trustworthy source for the information it imparts.

Any other "imitator" site that I've seen has had a scheming agenda. Perhaps the people behind the unscrupulous imitators are who we are hearing from in the above comments.

#5 UPDATE EX-employee responds


AUTHOR: Rippedoff - (U.S.A.)

Rusty is completely right about this website, it exists only to promote and enable massive online fraud. I and many others (I know personally at least two others) were paid to create user names, post fictitious "great" experiences with online pharmacies that the site does business with. The sheer volume of fraud is truly amazing and the amount of people ripped off by this site is incredible. More than 1/2 of the posts on the "feedback" part of the site are completely fake, the other 1/2 are probably usually only mildly negative, people who are too stupid to know they are getting ripped off (usually with fake drugs!) or who think if they're "nice" someone will help them out. LOL ... It's really sad. Don't believe me? Get a username and password and track the popular threads. There are about twenty "old hands", people with over 1000+ posts that always chime in to defend the pharmacies from bad reviews - but they always temper their remarks with some sort of ambivalence like, "they were pretty good but are slipping a bit, took me twenty day instead of ten to get my order LOL", you will see a billion permutations of this "negative" feedback from these types, it's supposed to make the suckers think "Well, he still got it, even if he had to wait, he still got it ... Duh". These posts are made by the site mods - than there are people like me who sign up with multiple accounts and create entire stories that somehow always turn out for the best .... LOL ... how the order got seized but it was reshipped, little dramas that always show the pharmacy coming through in the end. I had over twenty accounts for three months before I quit this s**t. I was working with two other people, blending our stories to keep the suckers sending their $ to these scam pharmacies. Do your own research if you don't believe me, get a username and track posts by people with between 200-600 posts - you will see that they post like its their job to, then dissapear, usually several times a day with over 100 posts per week on multiple pharmacy feedback threads. That was me. They are still doing it. We eventually kill accounts when it becomes too obvious. The point of this is not just that this site is a scam, it should be obvious to anyone that buying prescription meds without a prescription online is stupid - the point is that many, many of the posts that get deleted or "cleaned out" reference awful side effects from the drugs that are sent (they do send drugs, but they are usually fake) including headaches, stomach pain, vomiting... It's really messed up. There are fake drug mills all over Eastern europe and India that turn out fake meds for these online pharmacies to ship - from what I hear most of them are just pills with filler - i.e. no active ingredients but who knows what else might be in them? From what I've read on the boards it could be some very bad stuff. The feds need to shut this place down before someone dies.

Drugbuyers condones selective scamming.

AUTHOR: Rusty - (U.S.A.)

The site is supposed to be a place to exchange honest information about physicians and pharmacies.  Well, it depends on who or what the physician or pharmacy is.

There are at least two on-line pharmacies that are off-limits to this "honest information:" and  Both use the same method of payment, and I wonder if they aren't paying off whoever runs 

Credit card numbers have been stolen after using these place, or customers don't get what they paid for.  if anyone writes at Drugbuyers about about that or any other shady activity, the message is changed by the moderators to make it read as a positive, deleted, or the person who wrote the message is banned--or all three.

There are legitimate reasons for using Internet pharmacies, but if you use as a resource, stay away from those two pharmacies, at least--and read up as much as you can before using any source mentioned there.
