Illegal websites

Illegal medicines are often offered for sale on supposedly trustworthy websites via their webshops. The presentation of the websites often aims to convey that the respective provider is a reputable Austrian company. In this context, contact telephone numbers with Austrian prefixes are used. In many cases ordered products are not shipped at all. However, if pharmaceuticals are shipped, the products are often counterfeits that either do not contain the active ingredient specified or contain the wrong concentration, or impurities or contaminations with other active compounds.

How can you detect suspicious websites?

Common features of illegal websites:

  • No safety logo for distance selling pharmacies (Further information about safety logo).
