Domain Name Information
Every website on the Internet has public records available to provide details of who owns the domain and when the address was registered. With this site, the domain record shows us that this is a very new domain name only registered for a single year. This short registration is slightly suspicious and can point towards this being a scam website.
The owner’s name and contact details are hidden in the records. An additional fee has been paid to a privacy service to hide this information. This is something else which should trouble you if you are looking to make a purchase on this online pharmacy.
The name of the business supposedly operating this site is featured in the footer of each page on the site. The company name given is ‘Canadian Pharmacy Ltd.’ and this is a name that we have come across many times before. We don’t believe this is a real business name as no record of it can be found on official databases. There is only a similar named business on the Canadian Government database and even that has been dissolved.
There is no mention of an address anywhere to be found, they don’t even mention they are in Canada.
One of the first things you notice when visiting this site is that it doesn’t have a website logo that matches the domain name. Instead, the logo says ‘TrustPharmacy’ with the tagline ‘World Famous Pharmacy’. The reason for the lack of logo which is the same as the website address is because this site is a mirror of many others.
Regulation of online pharmacies exists to try to keep patients safe from scam sites which will quite happily sell you unapproved or counterfeit drugs. This site displays seals from the Canadian regulatory associations – CIPA, MIPA and PharmacyChecker.com. They also have a logo from the FDA. None of these seals links to the association sites and this normally points to a fraudulent use of them.
When we check to validate these regulatory approvals, we find as expected, that they are not really members of these associations. They are using the seals fraudulently and have no accreditation.
This site is so new that it hasn’t even been reviewed by LegitScript yet. However, it is unlikely to receive a positive recommendation when it is checked by them.
Products on Offer
The bestsellers on the site are very clearly men’s health pills, but other treatments are available too. For a site with the name ‘Generics’ in the address, they do appear to sell brand name pills as well. As the old saying goes ‘appearances can be deceptive’ and that seems to be true of this site. Though they may claim to offer brand-name drugs it seems likely that you will only receive generic or counterfeit pills here.
There is no indication as to where the drugs are dispensed from. Though, it seems likely you will get a package from India or China if you make the mistake of ordering from this site.
Payment and Shipping
The payment options offered are Visa and Mastercard. The store is secure with a valid certificate, but the payment page diverts you to a different site where you can fill in your card details.
You have two choices for delivery when ordering from this site. Airmail is the cheapest at $9.95 but can take 3 business weeks for delivery. EMS shipping comes with a tracking number and delivery is expected in 3 to 8 business days. EMS costs $19.95 per order. There is an additional charge of $4.95 for shipping insurance.
Customer testimony can be a great way to find out how reliable a business really is. It provides an insight into other people’s buying experience, helping you assess if you should complete a purchase with the company. There is a page on the site for Canadian-Generics.com reviews, this isn’t ideal as you will only find positive testimonials on a page like this.
For a website which is only a month old, they have managed to amass a surprising amount of customer reviews. The reason they have so many reviews is that the reviews are fake. Copied like the rest of the website and the same as the other mirror sites.
This site has very little to recommend it, they do have a site security certificate for example, but the downsides clearly outweigh this though. With a hidden business address and the fraudulent use of regulatory seals, we can only give this site 1-stars out of five. You would be better off looking elsewhere for your medical supplies.
