Anyone have exp. w/ online pharmacies???????
I got on an online pharmacy (from overseas, w/out a prescription), and typed up an order just to see the cost. This was about 2 months ago. I stopped at the credit card part, did not complete the order. I recieved a email aasking me to complete my oreder by providing credit card info, but I just deleted it. A few days ago, I recived a brown envelope w/ unmarked pills in it. Now note or bill or description. Nothing. A retuen handwritten address from Brazil. I neer sent payment so don't know why they would send them. Any ideas??????????
