Pharm247.net is an online pharmacy which appears to have all the correct regulatory approvals and says it has had over 1 million happy customers. Unfortunately, our investigation into this online drugstore shows these bold claims to bear no basis in reality. Read on to learn the truth about this scam website.

Overview of Store
The logo on the site says TrustPharmacy and claims to be world famous, this is an issue as this logo bears no link to the domain name. You would normally expect the logo and the site address to match up. The reason this hasn’t happened here is that this same site has been uploaded to the Internet using many different domain names. These mirror sites are exactly the same and there are a lot of them, some of them we have already reviewed.

Bearing this in mind, can you really trust anything this duplicate TrustPharmacy site is telling you?
Medications on Sale
The site offers a fairly reasonable variety of drugs, though clearly they are mainly focused on selling pills for fertility and related issues. This is highlighted in the fact that they give away a couple of bonus pills from the top brands in this sector with every order. Though these are unlikely to genuine brand name pills as they appear to be.
The site claims to offer both generic and brand name versions of popular drugs. They are happy to confuse the difference between brand and generic on their store, however. For example, when you see a brand name drug it isn’t actually from that brand, it is still a generic pill. They use the brand name and show a picture of one of the pills but it is actually counterfeit. They all but admit this on the FAQ page.
This site will sell you whatever medication you want and doesn’t require a prescription. There is no means of getting the prescription to them, even if it was required, as they don’t provide contact details.
The domain name records show us that this web address was registered only very recently. The site is less than 2 months old and the domain was only registered for one year. Scam online pharmacies are, understandably, normally only registered for a short time. After all, they don’t expect to be around very long so there is no need to register for multiple years.
Another bad indicator of an untrustworthy site is domain privacy. A domain privacy service can be used to hide the contact details of the people operating the business. The public records show us that they have indeed used a privacy service with this domain.
Business Name and Address
There isn’t any evidence of a business address to be found anywhere on the site. A company name is given – ‘Canadian Pharmacy Ltd.’ – though this is likely fake, used for the purpose of making the site seem more established than it really is. A check on the Canadian Government website seems to confirm this assessment, with no exact matches and only finding a company with a similar name that is dissolved anyway.
Ultimately, it is impossible to know who is behind this site and the other identical mirror sites or even where the drugs are dispatched from.
The site claims to have approval from CIPA, MIPA, PharmacyChecker.com and the FDA. None of these claimed approvals are valid, the seals from these associations have been used here fraudulently. A search on the Canadian International Pharmacy Association (CIPA) website reveals the truth.
LegitScript.com reviews online drugstores in order to try to keep consumers safe from potentially dangerous medicine suppliers. When we check the Pharm247 site with them we find that they are considered to be a rogue Internet pharmacy. They believe Pharm247 to be intentionally violating laws and regulations for dispensing drugs safely to patients.
Discount codes are a great way to get a better deal on your medicine, we haven’t found any coupon codes for this site though. This is probably just as well as using this site isn’t recommended.
Payments and Shipping
You can use Mastercard and Visa to make a purchase of drugs on this online pharmacy. When you go through the checkout process you are diverted to a different site – Secured-Bills.net – this site is at least secured with a site SSL certificate, as the main site is not.
Shipment options are either airmail or EMS. EMS courier delivery costs $19.95, has the benefit of having tracking and delivery times are between 3 and 8 business days. Airmail shipping can take up to 3 weeks and will cost you $9.95. If you spend over $200 you are eligible for free airmail shipping, an order over $300 gives you free EMS delivery instead.
Customer support seems to be rather lacking on this online drugstore. If you have an issue you main means of contact seems to be a form on the website. They do have a couple of phone numbers but these, if they are answered, are likely for sales and will probably direct you back to the online form.
If you want to really find out if a new website is worth putting your faith in, a good place to start is with the views of other previous customers. Customer feedback can be a truly great way to discover how well a company really performs when supplying products over the Internet. This is particularly important when it comes to medicine, as a mistake here could be potentially hazardous to your health.
Scam online pharmacies often resort to using fake reviews in order to encourage more people to have trust in them and place an order. When it comes to Pharm247.net reviews it is very obvious that the testimony page is filled with fake customer feedback. Perhaps these were copied from some legit website and used here, it seems more likely though that they were made up by the same person.
These exact same testimonials can be found on the other mirror sites as well. Take, for example, the i365-Pills.com reviews found on that site, the customer testimonies are word for word identical to those on Pharm247.
It is not advised to use this site to buy your medication, which is why we only rate Pharm247.com 1 out of a possible 5. This isn’t a legit place to buy drugs and it isn’t possible to have any faith in a mirror site such as this one. Please have more regard for your own health and avoid this site.
