Fairvaluepharmacy.co.uk claims to be a reputable Canadian pharmacy with a 7-year history. Given this claim, why are they using a UK domain name? We look into the background of this pharmacy to investigate this issue and discover if you can trust them to provide you with medication.

Domain Name Information
This domain name was first registered less than a year ago and it was registered for 2 years. Newly registered domain addresses are more of a concern than sites which have been around for many years. Scam pharmacies have a habit of not lasting very long for obvious reasons.
Who is Behind this Drugstore?
This online store doesn’t give the business name or address of the owners of this site. Though they say they are a Canadian pharmacy on the home page of the store, this clearly isn’t the case. Looking through their site uncovers the fact that they have been in business for 7 years, using a different domain name.
This store was previously operated using the domain name Fairvaluepharmacy.com, so why did they change to the co.uk address? They surely would have lost a lot of business by changing names, so they could only have made the switch because something was wrong with the .com address. Perhaps, the site was shut down by authorities or it was flagged as a scam, we don’t know for sure but it really isn’t a good sign.
One good thing about this discovery is that we have found some contact information for the owners of both these pharmacy stores. They are based in India, a country which is known for producing a lot of generic medication as well as fake and counterfeit pills.
This online pharmacy shows no sign of any regulation. Regulatory approval should help consumers buy medication that is genuine, from a company which will deal with you and your data in a trustworthy manner. This store has no such safeguards.
LegitScript hasn’t been able to find any regulatory approval either, giving them a rating of ‘rogue’ as a consequence.
Medication on Offer
This store offers a wide variety of generic medicine we don’t frequently find in online pharmacies of this sort. They don’t say exactly where the drugs are dispensed from, but from what we have found previously it seems likely that the pills come from India.
Payment and Shipping
You can pay for medication from this drugstore using credit cards, Bitcoin and direct bank transfer. The checkout page is secured with a valid site security certificate.
There are two shipping options when ordering from this site. Choose between airmail at a cost of $18 with a delivery time of 12 to 18 days, or EMS delivery costing $26 but reducing shipping time to 12 days or less.
Fairvaluepharmacy.co.uk reviews are difficult to find online, this is because the domain is so new. However, there is a link on the front page of this store which goes to a Trustpilot page for the .com, now defunct, online pharmacy.
There is only one review and this reviewer gives them 5-stars. Fair Value Pharmacy have responded on the same day to this testimonial to thank the customer. There seem to be a few issues here, though.
This feedback isn’t from a verified customer, they also haven’t written any other testimonials for other businesses. Given that we know that the owners of the site were using this Trustpilot page on the same day, this makes the chance of this testimonial being fake, extremely high.
A check on an older version of this store shows that they previously had a page, within the store, which was filled with fake customer feedback.
Not only are all the comments from anonymous people, but we have also found the same feedback on other sites (albeit with pharmacy name changed of course). This previous behavior increases the likelihood that they would be willing to create fake reviews in the future.
The people behind this pharmacy are happy to lie about where they operate their business from and are happy to use fake customer testimonials. They’ve also had to switch to a different domain address, which is highly suspicious. They do have a good range of drugs on offer but don’t have any regulation.
This isn’t the typical scam online drugstore we commonly find, and this saves them from our lowest rating. We award this store just 2-stars out of five. It’s easy to find a more reliable source of medicine online than this.
