MyCanadianPharmacyPro.com claims to offer cheap deals on pharmaceuticals, but its poorly written website copy and contradictory domain information point to a scam operating from outside Canada. Russia, Cyprus, and Greece are all possibilities for the real host country. This site offers many products which need to be prescribed by a patient’s doctor but it seems very easy to simply click and ship.
|Name of Organisation||My Canadian Pharmacy|
|Licenses, Certificates and Approvals|
|Live Chat Option||yes|
The domain was updated in December 2021 and is due to expire in December 2022. The domain name reveals that the site has a Russian origin and is registered to a private individual in Russia, not a company.
A Russian street address is mentioned when looking into the registration information, and registration took place in 2015. This casts doubt on the ’20 years experience’ claimed on the landing page.
There are two physical companies selling pharmaceutical products, located at the American and Canadian addresses mentioned on the website. However, a simple search on Google maps shows that they don’t match the website name.
As you can see, the grammar on the landing page is stilted and doesn’t seem as though a native English speaker has written it. There are spelling mistakes that suggest it’s been created by an individual who doesn’t speak English as a first language, which makes the company unlikely to be based in or affiliated with Canada.
There is a French-language option but it’s the 3rd one down in a drop-down menu, which is not would one would expect to see on the website of a Canada-based company.
We contacted live chat help and things became even more unclear – the operator proceeded to tell us that they were based out of Cyprus, then Greece, and that they did not have headquarters in Edmonton, Canada. The website clearly states otherwise.
Potentially this supplier or company could operate a number of fake websites as he doesn’t appear to be familiar with the content of this particular one. One would expect someone who works for the company to know where the head office is.
A quick search of the CIPA Safe Pharmacies website does not show any information for this company. When considering the medication available, this is obviously a concern.
Best selling products seem to be relating to men’s health but also available are medications relating to:
- Weight loss
- Mental illness (as stated on the website)
- Cancer treatment
It is very easy to select any product and add payment details. Each product is priced per tablet or per bottle and sold in batches, with the option to track delivery. Discounts are clearly indicated on products, so as to appear to the customer they are getting a great bargain. This is a common tactic on scam websites of this nature. There is a shipping cost added, and a 10% discount on the next order, in most cases, package delivery insurance is included with the price.
Payment, Shipping, and Delivery
It is incredibly easy to click onto the shopping cart and enter credit card details and no reassurance is apparent to reassure customers of the security of their financial details. A minor using a parent’s card or anyone without a prescription could easily order products with no query or age checks from the website.
An ‘express courier service’ is available for US customers only, for an extra $20, which would normally suggest it’s based in North America: this is a common delivery option if a company is legitimate.
However, If the company is not based in the USA, as we suspect is the case, why is it charging extra to the USA and not to other international markets? At the very least this is unfair to American customers. Could it be that it is targeting what the company believes to be a wealthier client base?
Trust Pilot did not show any reviews for MyCanadianPharmacyPro.com. The company itself does have a portion of the website discussing why customers should choose them. It provides 4 and 5-star testimonials for male health products but nothing for many other products.
This appears to be a deceptive and potentially unsafe scam website. The person we contacted seemed unaware of the physical location of head office as stated online, and was not familiar with key details of the website. Potentially harmful pharmaceuticals, some of which are not readily available due to the FDA restrictions in the USA, are easy to obtain.
There are no poor testimonials, nor any easily found reviews from TrustPilot or regulatory Canadian third parties that would suggest you can trust this company. That’s why we give them a 1.5-star rating.
