When you visit 1-pharm.com the first thing you notice is the logo which says “TrustPharmacy” and proclaims it to be world famous. This sounds alarmed bells right away. You would normally expect the logo to relate to the domain name. The fact that this isn’t the case here is the first indication of a potential problem with this online store. In this review, we delve deeper into the background of 1-pharm.com to see if they’re a scam website or if they are they legit.
|About Domain Name|

At the bottom of 1-pharm’s website they have multiple accreditation symbols, these are meant to assure potential customers that they are a trustworthy company to do business with. Some of these accreditation symbols are illegitimately used, implying trust which is unjustified.
The first symbol is the “Certified Canadian International Pharmacy” seal. When checking with this organization you find that they aren’t authorized to use this seal. They aren’t found in the CIPA database and are lying to customers on their site by claiming that they are accredited.
The site also uses logos from MIPA, the FDA and PharmacyChecker, these aren’t legit either and are just there to garner your trust.
Illegally Operating from the UK
They ship drugs from three different countries: India, UK and Canada. They have sales phone-numbers for the US and the UK. The issue here, and it’s a big issue, is that they aren’t allowed to sell drugs in the UK. For this company to sell drugs in the UK they need to be registered with the Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency. They are not registered with the MHRA, they are therefore illegally operating from the UK.
If they are illegally operating from the UK, what other things are they doing that they shouldn’t be?
Who is Operating This Pharmacy?
The site purports to be run by Canadian Pharmacy Ltd. which is clearly a legitimate sounding name. When checking with the Canadian Government it appears that this business doesn’t exist. Perhaps, this business is registered in another country, although that would be rather strange given the use of the location in the name.
The only references we can find for this company are from websites run by this company. It seems likely that this company name is just used to imply trust and isn’t actually a registered business anywhere.
They also give an International license number and issue date to try and reassure you that they are legit. This number only seems to show up in very similar pharmacy stores and it seems likely that this is just another fabrication in order to make you trust them.
The interface of this online pharmacy very familiar. We’ve made a comprehensive analysis for a mirror site with the same looking. Besides, there are a lot of suspicious related websites.

Hiding Their Real Identity
They are using a privacy protection service so that their real names and addresses can’t be found online. When someone registers a domain name they have to give their company details, this information can then be found on the Internet. You can pay an additional fee for privacy protection when buying a domain name so that these contact details are hidden. A genuine business wouldn’t do this, why would they need to?
Evidence would lead us to suggest that the people operating this website are based in the Ukraine or Lithuania. Unfortunately, that’s as close as I have come to know who operates this site.
They give a website copyright from 2001 to 2018, implying that this is a well-established company and website. This is simply not true. The domain was created on 2018-05-07, and the site is a clone of others, the people behind this operation have created previously.
The first 1-pharm.com review found is rather horrifying. The person claims, with a lot of justification, that the drugs are fake without a drug information leaflet and lacking the proper identification marks. He also points out that the FDA approval must be fake because of these issues. The detail which the reviewer goes into would suggest that this review is genuine.
In conclusion, we can only give this site 1 star. The reasons are clear. We don’t know who runs this site, they are hiding their names and location. They are claiming accreditation falsely and operating where they aren’t legally allowed to. This indicates that 1-pharm.com is probably a scam website.
Ultimately, you need to be able to trust where you are buying drugs from and 1-pharm clearly can’t be trusted. Even if you get the drugs you’ve paid for, how can you know that those drugs will contain the right active ingredients in the correct amounts? If you take the drugs you could be in danger of doing irreversible damage to your health, it simply isn’t worth the risk.
