MedsOffers.net is an e-drugstore for ordering various prescription drugs and other such products that you would shop from any pharmacy store. Modern lifestyle has made it difficult for customers to physically go to the traditional pharmacy outlets to collect their medications, and online pharmacies are trying to address the issue by providing e-commerce platforms to shop for such medicines. However, taking advantage of the latent demand for services of this nature, certain companies have set up rogue online pharmacies. The site in question is a prime suspect of being one such fraudulent website for certain reasons.

On the “About Us” page, the website claims that the business was founded by David Watson and Cecil Watson as a family-run chemist and druggist business. While this was back in 2002, and the business was set up under the name Canadian Pharmacy, there are certain discrepancies in the claim. While the website claims to employ more than 30 people, the site Matchdock suggests that the company employees a total of zero employees. The company address as mentioned on the website is 1822 Boulvar Dr., Montreal, Canada.
The website has a comparatively poor SEO score of 65%. MyWot lists the website as Unsafe with a 0.1 reputation, categorizing it as potentially illegal, scam, and spam.
One of the biggest concerns while trusting the genuineness of the website is the regulatory approvals. The website claims to have a Canadian International Pharmacy Association certification.
However, in the list of certified safe online pharmacies in Canada as published by CIPA, the website does not find a mention.
The website on its homepage claims to be top rated by Pharmacy Checker, however, as in the previous case, there is no mention on the Pharmacy Checker website in the list of PharmacyChecker Verified Online Pharmacies. Thus, either the licenses for operation for the business never existed, or they are being claimed fraudulently. The latter seems more likely since the certificate images uploaded on the website seem to have a cookie-cutter formula in their wordings and formatting.
Products and Pricing
The company offers a number of different products for conditions such as cancer, mental health, diabetes, etc. and also offers a variety of anti-allergens, antibiotics, antivirals, antidepressants, sleeping pills, etc. Additionally, users may also look at the website to buy products for pain relief, men’s and women’s health issues, weight loss, quitting smoking, pets care, eye care, skin care, etc. The website advertises several discounts on its website homepage, although it does not claim any exclusive long-term discount policy.
Payment and Shipping
The website suggests that customers can make payments by multiple means, such as Visa, MasterCard, Western Union, E-check, American Express, and Bitcoin. Payments made by Bitcoin are suggested to attract a 10% discount. While ordinarily, any such offer should not raise hackles, the issue is when a company incentivizes payments via Bitcoin, it certainly offers grounds for suspicion.
The company claims to offer two different delivery options. If you choose Regular Airmail, you will receive the order within 10-21 days, whereas if you choose Express Courier Delivery, you will receive it within 8-14 days. The website does not mention its shipping rates for the two options and claims that a user will be able to know the rates only after he has loaded his e-cart.
While the website claims to have good positive feedback on its website, on independent sites such as TrustPilot there are none of them. This in itself seems quite odd, because genuine e-pharmacies always have several user testimonials on TrustPilot. On MyWot several users have commented very negatively about the website.
With a lack of reviews on TrustPilot and negative feedback elsewhere, the preference for Bitcoin-based payments, a failure to inform about shipping rates before making an order selection, and the fact that the certificates that it claims to possess not possible to be corroborated from the official websites of the bodies it claims to have obtained the certifications from, there is high possibility that the website and its business is a scam with only a 1-star trust rating, and as such, should be avoided.
