mauricecano: how does a pharmacy "owe" you money where they would need to send a check?
mauricecano: Can anyone really feel sorry for the people that are stupid enough to fall for this scam in today's day and age? What business would ever send you more than you were owed, also how does a pharmacy "owe" you money where they would need to send a check?
groppet: My roomate ended up calling the bank on the check they had no account under the persons name and had gotten calls about it before and the number of the business on the check turned out to be a garage in California.

Because even if the bank tells you on the phone, or even if the clerk tells you when you're cashing it, that the check is good, it doesn't mean that it is.
farkeruk: "If they're selling you drugs without a prescription, you might as well go to a drug dealer".I had a tooth infection recently. I know what you do for it - you take amoxicillin. If it doesn't work, you find something else. In Spain, you just walk into a pharmacist and buy it. In France? Oh no, you've got to spend 30 euros seeing a dentist who then says that they'll give you amoxicillin. Gee, thanks.

BigLuca: TFA:It used to be you'd stop by your local street pharmacist to get something you couldn't get from your doctor. The drug trade, however, has changed with the times.From the prescription drug commercials to the pain-pill providers all across the Internet, we're inundated with drug offers at every turn. Even with insurance getting healthy can cost you an arm and a leg!So, looking to skip the drug store line and get a good discount lots of people turn to online pharmacies for both their legitimate, and not-so-legitimate, pharmaceutical needs. The FDA warns the majority of those 'internet-pharmacists' are really just online drug dealers, selling counterfeit meds that can make you sick.They're not just infecting you either. Online pharmacies can infect your computer too!So, if you're getting your drugs online, the FDA says double check. Make sure they're licensed by Texas' pharmacy board and if they'll dish out drugs without a prescription, you might as well walk to your local drug den, and see what kind of deal they can cut you!Please tell me this article was written by a 5th grader.
