Pharmacy4Ca.com claims to be a Canadian drugstore that sells both branded and generic men’s health drugs at a lower price. They also claim their products are of high-quality and offer superior customer service to all their customers. However, many aspects of this pharmacy look fishy and that prompted us to review it. Our findings were as surprising as it could get. Read below to find out more about our investigation.
|Date of Registration||2018-04-05|
|Name of Organisation||Pharmacy 4 CA|
|Licenses, Certificates and Approvals|
|LegitScript||not in the base|
|Live Chat Option||no|
We began our investigation by checking its domain details. The Whois data of this pharmacy says the owner registered the domain name on 5th April 2018 and it’s set to expire on 5th April 2020. So, the domain only has about a month in its lifespan unless the owner renews the license. Short domain lifespan is a major characteristic of a rogue pharmacy and their owner tend to run away after scamming several innocent people when they feel suitable. The loading speed of the website is also very average at best and it shares its server with 10 other websites.
Their ScamAdviser profile is another major indicator of an illegal business as it says the owner is using a privacy service to hide their identity as well as their location. The actual domicile country is unknown and all their contact details and social media profiles are out of order. You will find all these characteristics in almost every rogue pharmacy as it helps their owner to operate their business anonymously without getting caught by legal authorities.
We also checked their legal status with various regulatory authorities such as NABP, CIPA, MPA, Pharmacy Checker, etc and as expected, none of the authorities have any details of this pharmacy meaning they are operating illegally without obtaining necessary certificates. The situation gets worse as LegitScript does not have the pharmacy classified as it yet to review the pharmacy and its products.
The pharmacy primarily sells men’s health drugs that boost their performance on the bed. They offer the most popular branded drugs as well as their generic counterparts covering a wide range of diseases and conditions. Even though the pharmacy claims to be based in Canada, we found zero evidence to support this claim. They don’t even mention where they source and dispense their products. They are trying very hard to make us believe they are sourcing and dispensing their products from Canada, but in all likelihood, these drugs are brought into the country from developing countries such as India, China, Pakistan, etc where these drugs are duplicated and sold way below their regular market rate.
The pricing of their products is almost matching to their rogue counterparts. The pricing is quoted in Canadian Dollars and you cannot change. When we tried to purchase from this website, it sends us back to the Home page during checkout meaning the payment getaway link is broken and you cannot buy from this pharmacy. This might be a temporary issue, but it shows the lack of professionalism from the owner’s part.
The pharmacy claims to support a wide range of payment methods, including:
❋ Visa and Mastercard
❋ Discover and JCB
❋ Bank Transfer
They claim their payment getaway is secure as they are using a secure SSL seal, but we did not get to check that out as the payment link was broken.
The pharmacy has logos of several companies such as USPS, EMS, Royal Mail, etc on their Home page, but they have provided very little information about their shipping policy, costs, and other essential information. We did not get to know how long it will take to receive the parcel, the final shipping costs, etc. However, they also claimed that they offer free shipping on every order over $200 and every other order will cost $7.
The pharmacy does not have a testimonial page, so we were unable to find out what their previous customers were saying about its products and services. Things are identical in other review platforms such as TrustPilot as it does not contain any Pharmacy4Ca.com reviews in its platform.
Throughout our investigation, the pharmacy gave a very good account of being a scam pharmacy and not a legit business. Anonymous owner, unknown origin, broken links, no legal approval and SSL seal, no customer reviews all clearly states that it is unreliable and cannot be trusted. If you are trying to purchase anything, in all likelihood you will end up at the Home page instead of their payment getaway page.
