Domain Name Information
This website domain was registered in 2015 and will need to be renewed later this year. Online pharmacies which have been around for longer are more likely to be reliable than more recently registered sites. This is because scam pharmacies are normally here today and gone tomorrow type of websites.
The contact information for this domain address reveals the owner organization is called SeoMas and that they are based in Russia.
Business Contact Information
Reliable businesses don’t have any issues with providing their contact information. This store, on the other hand, doesn’t give a contact address or business name.
The store has phone numbers for the US and UK, but it seems more likely that the owner is actually in Russia as previously shown in the domain name record. Russia is considered to be a high-risk country so this increases the likelihood that this store is actually a scam.
Membership to regulatory associations can provide reassurance and make sure you have a safer buying experience with pharmacies online. This drugstore shows some regulatory seals in the footer section of the store. When we look at these seals it is clear there are a few things very wrong.
Two of the main regulatory associations in Canada are CIPA and MIPA. The seals on this store may say CIPA and MIPA but strangely they are not logos for the regulatory associations. The MIPA seal on the store even says “Professional Coating Systems” and is actually referring to a paint business.
Checking on the CIPA (the Canadian International Pharmacy Association) website we see that they aren’t members. Though, since they aren’t using the correct seals anyway they aren’t really claiming membership.
LegitScript has taken a look into this pharmacy and their findings aren’t great. They consider the store to be a rogue pharmacy which is in violation of the laws and rules for the jurisdictions they sell to.
This store offers quite a wide range of treatments. The main focus, however, seems to be marketing men’s health pills.
The drugs are manufactured in and dispatched from India. This presents a greater risk of fake or counterfeit pills being delivered to you if you order from this store.
Payment and Shipping
If you make the mistake of ordering from this store you have the choice of paying with either Mastercard or Visa. The store isn’t secured with an SSL certificate, but you actually enter your credit card details on a different site anyway. The site you are redirected to during the checkout process does have a security certificate and also claims extra security from Norton and Comodo though these seem to be fake.
Shipping is either by airmail or express mail. Airmail costs $9.95 and delivery is expected in 14 to 21 days. Express mail costs $29.95 and takes 5 to 9 days, it also comes with a tracking number. Airmail is free on orders above $200. There is an extra charge of $4.95, added at the last minute, for shipping insurance.
This pharmacy has its own page for CanadaPharm24.com reviews. This testimonials page is filled with positive feedback as you might expect, as what store is going to post negative customer comments to their own site?
These customer comments are actually fake. A search on part of the text of one of the comments shows that it is found on thousands of other sites.
It is far better to find customer testimonials on independent review sites and we have located one such post. This seems to be a genuine customer who has written many other reports about other businesses and is far more likely to be representative of customer’s experiences than the fake testimonials.
This store has connections to Russia and India and this should be a concern to you, as both countries are linked to counterfeit drug operations. Other problems with this drugstore include the pretend regulation, fake customer testimonies on their site and a very negative comment from a genuine customer.
For these reasons, we can only give this site just 1 star out of a possible 5.
