The Whois details of this pharmacy suggest that the pharmacy’s domain is active from 14th November 2018 and will expire on 14th November 2020. So, the pharmacy has only four more months in its lifespan and only in existence for 16 months instead of 12 years as they claim.
The pharmacy’s website loading speed is very slow as it shares its server with 347 other websites.
The pharmacy has a mediocre trust score of 59% on Scamadviser and also likely originated in Moscow, Russia. This makes the pharmacy extremely suspicious and highly-risky. The owner is using a privacy service to mask their identity and their location to avoid any legal scrutiny of their business.
The data also highlights the involvement of two different countries in its set up – the Russian Federation and the United States. The toll-free US and the UK number are fake and the live chat option and the email address both do not exist in the real world.
The pharmacy is not registered with any concerned authorities such as CIPA, Pharmacy Checker, NABP, MIPA, etc as none of their databases contain any information of this pharmacy. This means the pharmacy is running an illegal business without obtaining essential licenses.
Unfortunately, LegitScript classified the pharmacy as a rogue. This means their products are untested and unverified by the concerned authorities and may be harmful for human consumption.
The pharmacy sells both branded and generic health drugs from some of the reputed and established suppliers. They don’t have a large inventory with only a few medicines in each drug category.
The pharmacy’s best-selling product categories include:
- Neuro Disorders
- Skincare, etc
A prescription is not required by the pharmacy before selling their drugs. However, they do recommend to consult with a licensed physician first before ordering anything from this pharmacy.
The pricing of their best-selling drugs perfectly matches with several rogue pharmacies available on the internet. They claimed their products are mostly come from India and approved by the Indian FDA, but they did not provide any evidence of their claim. We are also unsure about their product quality for the very same reason.
The pharmacy only supports major credit cards such as Visa, Mastercard, AMEX, etc as a payment option and does not offer any other payment options to their customers.
However, we did not find any legal SSL seal on their website and their payment getaway suggesting higher chances of identity theft and other frauds on the platform.
The pharmacy sells all its products worldwide thanks to the following two popular shipping options:
- Airmail, which takes around 2 to 3 weeks to ship the parcel after the dispatch and costs $9.95 with the option of tracking
- Express International Mail, which ships the parcel within 5 to 9 business days after the dispatch with the option of tracking available.
The final shipping charge will vary depending on the parcel size and your physical location.
The pharmacy’s customer testimonial page is full of random one or two-line disclosures with some of them from 2017. The pharmacy not existed in 2017 suggesting these Maplepharm.com reviews are either fake, owner-generated or stolen from other pharmacies.
However, external review platforms like TrustPilot does not have any Maplepharm.com reviews on its platform.
Throughout our review, we did not find any evidence to call it a genuine pharmacy. The website looks amateurish, the owner is hidden, fake reviews, no SSL seals, the involvement of Russia all indicates this is a rogue pharmacy.
Therefore, no reason to buy anything from this pharmacy as you may likely fall victim to a well-organized cyber-crime. We give Maplepharm.com a 1 star out of 5 based on our findings.
