When a website address is registered, the details of this registration are added to a database that anyone can view. The domain name record for this online pharmacy shows us that this address was first created last year and a registrar in Pakistan was used. Domain names which haven’t been around for very long can sometimes be an indication of the site being a scam.
Business Contact Details
Knowing where the online pharmacy you want to do business with is located, goes a long way to increase trust in the site. This store gives a location in the Czech Republic (despite the Canada logo) and tells you that their business name is Europharm Group Inc. We have, however, seen this business name and address before on other pill selling sites.
We are highly skeptical that this is a genuine business, having found no mention of the company in any official government databases. Another rather strange thing about this, is that the phone numbers they give are for the US and the UK, why not use a Czech number as well? It seems highly likely that this isn’t where the business is based and we have no way of knowing for sure where they are genuinely located.
Since this site is claiming to be in Europe, you would expect them to be following the EU rules for the selling of medicine. The EU rules should have them placing a common EU logo on their site and being registered with government agencies. Looking around the site shows no sign of the EU logo, and checking the official database shows that they aren’t registered.
LegitScript has reviewed this store giving them their lowest approval status of ‘rogue’. They agree that this pharmacy isn’t following the rules and therefore they are breaking the law.
This means they are operating illegally in Europe.
There are many other stores, which we have investigated before, which are using the same text as this site. They may have different graphics and theme, but the content is identical. These duplicate sites exist so that the owner can cast as wide a net as possible to catch as many customers as they can.

Payment and Shipping
When buying medication on this store you are redirected to a different site to complete your transaction. This suggests the site is part of an affiliate network, directing customers to a central hub which deals with purchases.
This payment page allows you to complete your purchase using:
You have two options when it comes to shipping. Choose between either airmail which costs $14.95 or EMS at a cost of $24.95. As you would expect, EMS is quicker with delivery times of 3 to 8 days and you are also given a tracking number. The cheaper airmail delivery can take up to 4 weeks.
Free airmail delivery is available when you spend over $200, with free EMS offered if you are willing to spend $300. They will also give you some free men’s health pills when you place an order. Though an additional charge of $6.95 for delivery insurance is added to the bill as well, and there seems to be no way of opting out of this charge.
It can be an enlightening experience when reading customer feedback about online pharmacies. You can sometimes discover some very worrying information that will change your mind about placing an order with the drugstore.
More often than not, though, the customer testimonials will seem to be good. This is particularly true when the testimonials are located within the pages of the pharmacy’s own site. Independent customer review sites tend to be less biased, giving you a more accurate overview of the drugstore’s reliability.
When we look for ApprovedPharma.com reviews, we are only able to find the testimonial page within the store’s own site. And unsurprisingly, the feedback found here is completely positive. There is a bigger issue here than just the biased comments, though. These testimonials are very familiar to us because we have seen them many times before finding on other pharmacies. The use of fake testimonials is another factor that increases the likelihood that this is a scam drugstore.
We only give this store 1-star out of five, the reasons for this should be clear. The main factors being the hidden and fake contact information, as well as this being part of an affiliate group using content found on many other pharmacies. We have no idea where this company genuinely operates from or where the pills are dispensed, and this could leave you open to receiving fake medication. You really should look elsewhere for your pills.
