Recently I placed an order with Alldaychemist and received an email from them detailing how to track the parcel. The email I received is exactly as below:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Bill
Thank You for placing an order with us.

Now while all the links are genuine and go to the sites indicated the link for "Hongkong Post----other countries" (this includes Australia) does not. The link somewhere along ADC's line has been altered and actually takes you to an Indian dating and matrimonial service. I emailed ADC with a complaint, copying and pasting the link within my email. Their reply was they did not understand for they could see nothing wrong and the link was genuine. They included in their reply the pasted false link I had sent them and it was indeed now kosher. This is their reply:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Bill
Thank you for the mail.
Please note that we do not engage in any such policies. The link that you said links to Hongkong Post tracking site and not to any matrimonial site. I think that there is some sort of confusion here. You can click on the link yourself and check.
Even when you click the link and then choose Australia, the following link appears:http://ice.auspost.com.au/
With warm regards

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I then checked the link pasted within my complaint email and lo and behold, the copied link therein was legitimate. Somewhere somebody had changed the link destination while keeping the screen wording the same ( a common phising practice) , but had also taken into account that should there be a complaint to ADC the false link if copied somehow reverted to genuine. (wow that is very clever)
It was only by copying the entire email and sending it back to ADC that they could see that what I was saying was correct. But as I look now at my post here, the pasted original email also goes to the genuine site. The link within my ADC original tracking advice email took you to this site "http://www.indiapost.org " which is actually a matrrimonial/dating service. Someone within their organization sure is clever at covering their tracks. This may also explain the ED emails people complain about.
Below is their latest reply.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"Dear Bill

Thank you for the mail.
Please trust me that we are not aware of this and I thank you for pointing this out. You are correct and I will get the link corrected immediately.
I apologize the inconvenience faced by you but it will not happen again.
With warm regards

This thread is useful because many of us here order from ADC and we may encounter the same thing in the future, so forewarned is forearmed.

Scott,
I have much empathy for your situation and can understand your anger but why are you lately adopting such a belligerent attitude to fellow members. It is called sharing information.

Something similar may explain CPA's email spam deluge...

I think the response that was received from AllDayChemist confirms that they are a reputable company.

They have been a tremendous assistance to me in my ED recovery, as I could otherwise not afford to take that little blue pill as frequently as I do.

PSA 5/22/06: 5.6

Organ confined, clean margins.

In relation to the actual order................the order was placed on the 16th February and I had it in my hands on the 23rd February........... exactly 1 week. What strikes me is there is no evidence of Australian customs inspecting the contents of the package. The orders are packed in a closed plastic container, then in what appears to be a light calico fabric (they go to quite a lot of trouble actually) completely stitched and sealed all round ..........there is no way to open and check the contents of the package without cutting off the fabric. As opposed to this, I also occasionally bring in golf club components (heads, shafts and grips etc.) from overseas and these parcels are always opened and inspected. Go figure.

As to Casodex, it is $20 per 50mg per small pill here in Columbus, Ohio. It just went off of patent, I think in Jan. of 09, and I found the generic form of the drug on CanadaDrugOnline for much less. The cost of Casodex here was $620 for 30 and $126 for 28 delivered to my home within a week from London England. My point? Research those drugs that we need that are coming off of patent to save money. I understand that many will question the duality of each drug as have I but I found the above company to be viable in past drugs. NOT an endorsement! I have no insurance nor means, after the stock market debacle, and want to help the too many like me work through this cancer and hope/fight for the best treatment..


Ohio, that is the sort of information that makes this site so valuable.
