World-Pharm.com claims to be a world-famous pharmacy but its Alexa ranking is around 1 Million which is very low. This website bears many characteristics of a rogue drugstore. Here’s a review of this drugstore based on our investigation.
|Name of Organisation||Canadian Pharmacy|
|Licenses, Certificates and Approvals|
|Live Chat Option||no|
This domain is online since 27 August 2018. It is just over a year old and we know very well that all the rogue pharmacy stores have a lifespan of around 1 year. The name of the owner of this site is also hidden. A genuine website owner never hides his identity from the world. He is probably hiding his identity to protect himself from getting spammed.
A business website requires to have an SSL certificate to protect the privacy of its customers. The website has no SSL certificate. It means it doesn’t even care about the privacy of its users. It’s not necessary for a personal website like a blog to have an SSL certificate but a business website without SSL certification is uncommon. Therefore we can say that this is not a legit internet pharmacy.
As we have already mentioned, the name of the registrant of this pharmacy website is hidden. There is very much wrong with this internet pharmacy which makes it unreliable. Its trust score on ScamAdviser is absolutely zero. Moreover, the domain and the business name of this store don’t match. A genuine business website always has a matching domain and business name. The domain of this site is World-Pharm.com while the business name is Canadian Pharmacy on the homepage. This business name is not even available in any licensing authority’s database.
Approvals from Regulatory Authorities
A legal pharmacy store needs to have approvals from regulatory agencies like CIPA, LegitScript, NABP, and Pharmacy Checker. Though this site claims to have approvals and it also has some seals of approvals on their website but our investigation made sure that they are fake. It does not appear anywhere in the database of any licensing authority. A website with no approvals means it sells medicines of low standards which may not be suitable for use. It is also termed as a rogue drugstore on LegitScript.
Products and Pricing
Products available for purchase on this drugstore are mostly men’s health pills. All the fake pharmacy stores follow this trend of selling these pills. They also try to deceive their customers by putting on some general health medicines in order to look legal. Primary sources of these medicines are countries like India, Pakistan and other Asian countries which already have been accused of low-quality medicines in the past as well. Similar to other rogue pharmacies, you don’t need a prescription to place an order on this site. Prices on this drugstore are insanely low. Most of the drugs are available at less than a dollar price. Such low prices are maybe because they are involved in a scam or international smuggling. Therefore, it is recommended to stay away from this drugstore.
Payments and Shipping
They accept only MasterCard payments. But we found many complaints against the website, therefore, one should not make any transactions on their website or you may only end up losing your money or even your sensitive information as they don’t own an SSL certificate. They offer two shipping methods:
✔ US Postal Service
✔ EMS Express
All the orders above $200 are shipped for free.
If you visit the testimonial section of this website you will find a lot of reviews from the customers. All of them look like they are from real customers but during our research, we found that all of them are fake. They are making fool of the users as those comments appear in a number of other pharmacy stores as well. Also, it has zero reviews on TrustPilot. So we can say that it has not received a single testimonial from a genuine customer.
After looking at every aspect of this website we can finally conclude that it is an illegitimate drugstore. Its business profile is all messed up, it doesn’t own an SSL certificate, and it doesn’t even have any approvals from regulatory agencies. We conclude this review by giving this rogue pharmacy 1 star out of 5.
