Is this a scam? How do I know its legit? +

No, its not a scam. Our site and products are 100% legitimate. We realize our site is a bit 'humorous' and we're in the process of improving it. But we promise you we sell the best fake doctor's notes on the Internet. Our notes are modeled after real doctors notes, making us by far your best option outside of visiting a real doctor.

Here's why we could not be a scam:

  • We have an approved merchant account. Getting approved for a merchant account is a long process. They view your product, your credit history, your personal history, and more. Scammers do not get merchant accounts.We have been approved for a merchant account by Mastercard, American Express, Discover and Visa. They would never approve of us if we didn't proove to them that we were an ethical company selling a legitimate product.
  • We have a clean record. If we receive over a 1% chargeback ratio (1/100 people report we've not provided a valid product), we would lose our merchant account and we'd never be able to get one again.
  • We've stood the test of time. We've successfully been providing doctor's notes for over 5 years. Businesses that are scamming people do not last long. They must constantly change hosts, providers, merchant accounts, and server locations. For the price we charge for this product, it wouldn’t even be worth it if we chose to scam you. Here is proof (of our website's age) by using a domain age checking tool. (Please enter bestfakedoctornotes.com to check the age. Please note as of 10-19-13, we have changed our name to bestfakedoctorsnotes.net for better search engine visibility.)
  • We have real testimonials. We also have large collection of real testimonials (customer reviews) on our
    website. Many businesses just make up fictional testimonials. That is illegal. Ours are legal and verifiable. 
    Please listen to our many recorded testimonials on the home page.
  • We rank well in the search engines. The search engine companies (Google, Yahoo, Bing) detect any
     fraudulent activity, or any activity has been reported to them, they can remove sites from the search
     engines . Our site has been in the top 5 for over 3 years.
  • We remain an active business. If we were cheating our customers, the Federal Trade Commission, the
    Attorney General, or any agency would’ve investigated us and shut us down.

We are the largest and most trusted source of doctor's notes on the internet. If you do not believe us, please leave this
site and look around to see for yourself. We understand concerns about buying online, but running a scam would be virtually impossible in the long term. If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact us
via email, live chat, or phone.

I just want one doctor’s note, not 30. +

We understand. But we made it our goal to sell our package of over 30 high-quality notes for the price that other companies were selling one low-quality note for. The reason we give you over 30 is so you can select the one you feel most confident with.

You can also cut and paste elements from the notes to create your own super custom note.

What if someone calls back on the note? +

Due to HIPAA medical privacy laws, most notes are not called back on.

However, we have a no-cost call back verification feature (that we highly recommend) that enables you to set up a number (in your area code) with an automated voice messaging system. You will then be able to upload pre-made MP3 files that will sound like an authentic hospital, clinic, or even a doctor's answering machine. Further explanation is provided within the product download area.

Once again, because of HIPAA laws, there are very few questions that an individual can ask when calling back on a note.

Is this website secure? +

Yes. The order page is https with 128-bit encryption. It is hosted by Amazon.com on a secure server. We do not retain any credit card numbers as our processing is done by a secure third party. All of your private information is stored securely and we do not share it with anyone.

How does this work? I am confused. +

Sorry to hear that you are confused.

Its very simple -- just fill in your credit card information and order the notes. Within a few minutes you will receive a link within your email. Click the link to go to our download page where you can open the notes.

Open the notes in your word processor such as MS Word (or Google Documents). Edit and print the notes and submit.

Please also look here for more info.

Can I see pictures / examples / samples of the notes? +

We do have a photograph of SOME of our notes here. However, we do not show close-up pictures of our notes for two reasons:

1.) We do not want people copying the notes that we took so long to research and develop.

2.) Many purchasers have requested that we do not show close up pictures the notes on the Internet. They do not want their notes they are using to be publicly visible.

Will the notes work in any state? What about my city? +

Our notes have been tested and proven to work in all US states and Canada. They also work for other English speaking countries. You can tailor the notes to fit your city and state. The address field (and most of the note) is fully customizable.

How customizable are the notes? +

You can edit the physician's name and the phone numbers, along with other information on the notes. The clinic and hospital names can be customized on most but not all of the notes.

You can also delete and switch out the graphics to create your own custom notes.

What different types of notes do you have? +

We sell 1 bundle of over 30 doctor's notes. That is it. The notes are designed for all different types of situations, and can be tailored to fit any need. They are all fully customizable and have been proven to work in any state. Also, you can basically create your own by piecing the elements of our notes together within a word processor.

To learn about our collection of notes,  you can get more info here.   To see a picture of some of our notes, click here.

Once I buy the notes, can I download them anywhere? How many times? +

Yes you can download the notes anywhere, to any computer or device you want. You can do this as many items as you want. However, after ~10 clicks on the link, your link will expire. We can reactivate it if you wish. We apologize but our software automatically does this for security reasons (to prevent unauthorized sharing). Feel free to ask us for a reactivation.

Is there any hidden fees? Is this a one time charge? +

No there are no hidden fees. And yes it is a one-time charge.  However, if you choose to check the VIP Access box on the order form, you will be charged 4.97 per month for continuous access.  However, this box isn't checked by default so you have nothing to worry about.

It is a one-time charge, we promise.

How much is the total price? +

We change our prices often --- so please simply look at the bottom of the order form. Its highlighted in yellow.

Do these doctor’s notes really work? +
Yes - they work. They are modeled exactly after real doctor's notes. They work in any state in the US, Canada and in some parts of Europe (Ireland and Great Britain). Our notes are the best option you have on the Internet. You also get a 365-day money-back guarantee.
Do I have the sign the notes myself? +
Yes.  However, we do have a signed notes option that is available after you order.
Why do you need my address and phone number? +
On the order page, we ask for these two things because our payment processor requires it.  However, we will not SPAM you or telemarket to you.  Furthermore, all your information is 100% secure with us and will not be released to anyone.
Are the doctor’s notes blank? +
Yes. Depending on the note you choose, you may fill in information by hand or type it in with your word processor. It really depends on which note you choose to use. By default the signature area is blank, but you can upgrade to signed notes after you order if you wish.
What sickness do I put on the notes? +
Due to HIPAA laws, the sickness/ailment/reason seen is NEVER shown on any real doctor's notes. Instead, just the date seen and restrictions are shown. You can edit the note on your computer or you can fill in this info by hand.
Can I access the notes from anywhere? +
Yes the notes are sent to your email so you can re-open the download link from anywhere.
Do I need a special printer or color ink? +
Many of our notes are in color. However, they do not need to printed in color.  Many notes we've seen are in black and white.

We recommend printing on a laser printer or ink-jet at its highest quality setting.

Do the signatures look real on the signed notes? +

NOTE: The signed notes are available AFTER you order.

Yes the signatures look very realistic, and print surprisingly well when set to high-quality print mode. You cannot see the pixels.

What all do I get? +

Please review our main (home) page and also the order page.  Our product is explained very thoroughly.  You get 30-40 doctor's notes (we've honestly lost count) plus some bonus goodies.

How long will it take to get the notes? +

The notes will be delivered to your email within 5 minutes. You can then open them up from any computer. If for some reason they are not delivered to you, email us and we will get them to you as soon as we possibly can.

What if the person I'm submitting to has seen this site? +

Chances are they have not. We do not do any advertising besides placing content on the internet.

I need a note for {insert reason here}, do you have it? +

Please visit this link to see all the notes that we have available. Our notes can be tailored to fit any medical need. They are fully customizable but sometimes a bit of creativity is required.

How do I turn in the notes? +

Most people turn them in when they return to work. However, some people fax or scan and email the notes.

Will I be billed multiple times? Is it a one time charge? +

No you will not be billed multiple times. By default, its a one-time charge.

However, if you chose to part of our VIP package (by clicking the check box at the bottom of the order form) you will be charged $4.97 per month for continuous access to the notes. This is totally optional, however.

Is this legal? / Why isn’t this site banned? +

We provide novelty doctor's notes with fictitious names and fictitious institutions. Mimicking real medical institutions and medical professionals is likely illegal. We do not do this. However, please check with your local laws.

Which note is the best one to use? +

That is up to you to decide. You have to look through them all and find which one you're most comfortable with. Some are very simple, others are complex.

That is why we offer a large selection of notes -- because we know its an important decision and people feel comfortable with different options.

How can I print my note? +

If you've ever printed from a word processor you can print our doctor's notes. You just open them up and print them. They are in color but printing them in black and white will not decrease the believability as many notes are simply printed on office black-and-white laser printers. If you do not have a printer at home we highly recommend a print shop or library.

Can I pay a different way? +

We prefer credit cards, but If you do not have one and want to pay a different way (such as a check in the mail, cash, etc.), please contact us and we will try to see what we can do for you. We cannot take bank routing numbers.

Do you have a phone number? +

We do but its for billing questions use only. We do not currently take orders over the phone, sorry. If you have any questions please email us at help@bestfakedoctornotes.com.

Why wont it take my credit card? I keep getting declined! +

Email us at help@bestfakedoctornotes.com and we will see if we can enter it manually. This often works.

What do the notes say / have on them? +

Doctor's notes come in all shapes and sizes. They almost always mention the date you were seen and any medical restrictions. DO NOT mention your specific illnesses on your notes as this is not realistic due to HIPAA privacy laws.

As far as other elements: they have logos, address information, phone numbers, watermarks (sometimes) and stamps (sometimes). They also have other aesthetic details.

By default, our notes are filled in with fictitious information (ie 555-555-5555 as phone number), but they can be tailored to fit any need.

Do the notes need special paper? +

No. We've seen dozens and dozens of doctors notes and they are always printed in regular paper. Printing them from a inkjet or laser printer works perfectly.

A week only? What does that mean? +

After a week your access link to the download page will expire. However, you are welcome to download all of the notes and save them to your computer.

Why do you need my home address and phone number on the order page? +

Our payment processor requires it. We will not send you spam, telemarketing, or junk mail. So don't worry about it.

What file format are the notes in? +

The notes are in MS Word format. They can be opened with Microsoft Word, Google Docs, or OpenOffice (OpenOffice.org)... and likely many other programs. However, they are tested to work in Microsoft Word.

How quickly do I get the notes? +

The download link to the notes should be available to you within 5-10 minutes of ordering.

Do I edit the notes by hand? +

For the most part you edit the notes within your word processor. However, some elements on the notes require printing and filling in by hand.

Do you have signed notes? +

Yes we have an upgrade option that will allow you to get our notes signed. They print perfectly. When you purchase this you get the collection of unsigned notes AND signed notes.

I need a discount / coupon code. Where is it? +

We do not have one. One of our forms asks for one however its there by default. We are sorry -- but we do not have any coupon / discount codes.

I just ordered your package and I received NOTHING! I am upset! What gives? +

Sorry about that. That happens sometimes, but very rarely. Just email us here and I will send you the download link to the notes ASAP.

How can I make a fake doctor’s note without buying one? +

It's very hard without referring to a real doctor note and having graphic design skills. Do not take the risk.

Is this site a joke? How can I take it seriously? +

This site is meant to be humorous, however, our products look very authentic. We encourage you, however, to not use our notes for illegal purposes. Please review our disclaimer before purchasing.

Are you affiliated with Amazon.com? +

No. Not at all. However, we do use their secure hosting on our order page so your credit cart and personal information is 100% secure.

Which of your doctor’s notes works the best? +

Some are more convincing than others. We actually recommend some of our more simplified notes. Many docs simply scribble a note on a medical notepad. We have several excuse notes that are inspired by these.

How do I receive the notes? +

The notes are sent to you via a link. You click the link and download the notes onto your computer. You then open the file and can load any of the notes into Adobe Reader and/or Microsoft Word. You likely have these programs already on your computer.

Is this software? +

No, this is not software. It's a simple package of files that you can open with Adobe Reader or any .doc compatible word processing program (recommended). It will be fully compatible on your PC or Mac.

What does a doctor note look like? I want to see a copy of one of your notes. +

We do not want to show our notes too closely because we do not want people to copy them… or the people you’re ‘tricking’ to see them. But you can click here to see a distant image of what the doctors notes look like.

We’ve designed these notes to be very limited in quantity and exposure. We do not want them to leak out to irresponsible people.

I just need one of your notes, not all of them. Can I just get one? +

No. Sorry. Most of the other sites charge 10 – 20 dollars for a very average looking SINGLE note.

We guarantee you will not find any notes better than ours! The reason we have many notes in one package is so you’ll have the option to choose the note that is best suited for your needs. We also want to create great value (…and still be able to make a small profit to cover our advertising expenses.)

How can I change the names on the notes? What about the date? +

Our notes are all in MS-Word AND PDF files. Usually you cannot edit a PDF file, but we’ve created ours so certain fields can be editable. The doctor name and the date are customizable on all notes. On some notes you can edit the clinic name.

On most notes, it requires you to write your name and other information by hand onto the note. However, we do have some notes where all of this info is entered before printing.

Lastly — on our pre-signed notes you cannot change the doctors name because the signature is a digital image. However, if you order the pre-signed notes, you’ll also receive the unsigned notes. That way you can sign them yourself if you choose to do so.

NOTE: We highly recommend using the MS-Word notes instead of the Adobe PDF notes.

I need a note for ______________. Is this possible? +

Many people come to our site looking for specific notes for specific illnesses. For example, many people read our site and feel that there isn’t a note available for what they need.

This is a mistake because, although we have notes for a variety of clinics, we also have many ‘general’ medical notes that you can quickly and easily tailor to your specific needs.

These notes include a hospital release form, a general doctors note, general clinic notes, a blank prescription form, and other notes where you can customize the clinic name and specialty. People have found that these notes actually look – in many ways — more legitimate than our other notes.

The choice is yours. Download the notes and find which one you think looks the most fitting for your needs.  We offer many notes in our package so you have the freedom to choose which note works best for you.
