You are looking to save some money by buying prescription drugs online. Well good for you. Buying online prescription is one of the easiest ways to get medicine and it's very simple as well as time saving. But, there is a very high possibility that not only will you never receive your order, but you may also have your credit card maxed out in short order.

Here some tips which you should check before buying online prescription from pharmacy website as there are plenty of pharmacy websites fake nowadays.

So just how can you tell if it's fake? Well, let's take a look at one and see what clues we can find.

• Pharmaceutical sites will display some type of "Security Badge". Like GeoTrust or McAfee Secure. These badges should be clickable and take you to their security certificate. Again, look at the URL. It should be the URL of the security company and not the address of the pharmaceutical site you're on. It should also be a secure URL. Meaning it will have https and not http.

• Take a look at the sites menu. The links in the menu, in a lot of cases, will lead nowhere, or take you to the top of the page. This is because they don't take the time to completely setup the site, they know the hosting provider will take down the site when the complaints start rolling in.

• One of the first things you want to do, is to take a peek at their About Us or Contact page. On either page you should find a physical address along with a phone number. To tell instantly if it's fake, try to highlight the address.

• Take the address and put it in Google maps. It should return results that match what the website says. The best one so far, was located at a scrap metal yard.

• Fake sites will hide the payment options until you've placed items in the shopping cart and filled out your shipping address. They do this so even if you don't complete the order, they at least have your email, name, address and phone number. Which they can then sell to other scammers. So if you have any doubt about the legitimacy of the site, do not use you real personal information.

These are some tips that will give you idea that the site is genuine or not. There are many more, like phone numbers, shipping times, return policies, testimonials etc.
