canadapharm24.com - Whois
The domain name information found in the records reveals that this site’s address was registered in 2015. We have found that more recent domain names provide a greater risk of online pharmacies actually being scams
We can also see that the details about the owner of the registration are given in the record. The owner is an organization located in Russia. Russia is considered a high-risk location when it comes to online stores, this is due to a large amount of fraud originating from that country.
This store is using a logo and domain name which suggest that this is a Canadian pharmacy business. The use of Canada as a place to locate fake scam pharmacies is a frequent problem we find. We doubt very much that this is a Canadian website and the link to Russia we have already found backs this up.
Business Name and Address
There isn’t any information about the business operating this store or where they are located found anywhere on the store. We are left to assume that this pharmacy is operated by a Russian business called ‘SeoMas’ but we have no further information than that. This is needless to say not a good thing to find and is often a problem found with scam online pharmacies.
Online pharmacies require regulation to make sure that they are operating in a safe manner to provide medication to patients. This store displays four seals on their site which seem to be from the FDA, CPA, CIPA, and MIPA.
While these seals may appear to provide proof of this pharmacy being correctly regulated, this isn’t actually the case. You should normally be able to click on a regulatory seal to confirm its validity. This isn’t the case here.
Additionally, CIPA and MIPA are Canadian regulatory associations that we are very familiar with. The seals used here are completely different from the genuine seals used by members of the associations. In fact, the MIPA seal is really a logo used by a German paint company, and it even says “Professional Coating Systems” on it.
The genuine seals look rather different from the ones used on this pharmacy. This makes it very obvious that this store has no genuine regulation and are just pretending to be legally operated.
If these two seals are incorrect it seems highly likely that the other two are as well.
When we check with LegitScript we find that they support our finding that this store isn’t operating within the legal framework. They give the pharmacy a rating of ‘rogue’ finding no reason to recommend the online drugstore.
Medications on Sale
This store offers both brand and generic meds for sale on their site. They offer quite a number of different treatments to patients but they seem most focused on selling men’s health drugs.
Despite this pharmacy’s claims to being a Canadian store, the truth is that these pills are both manufactured and dispatched from India. They don’t give any additional details about the pharmacy which is dispensing the drugs or the factories in which they are created.
Unreliable online drugstores don’t care whether you are safe to take the pills you have ordered and just want your money. In line with that, it isn’t a great surprise to find that this store doesn’t ask for a prescription when you order medication from them.

Payment and Deliveries
When it comes to delivering your medication the store gives you two options. You can choose from either express mail and airmail.
- Express mail costs $29.95 with delivery expected in up to 9 days, this option includes the provision of a tracking number.
- Airmail costs $9.95 with delivery expected to take as long as 3 working weeks. Orders above the values of $200 qualify for free airmail shipping.
They also add a shipping insurance charge of $4.95 when you go through the checkout process. This charge seems unnecessary as they state in the FAQ that they guarantee to resend packages for free if they aren’t delivered in the set time period.
Your customer support contact options are an online form and two phone numbers, one for the USA and one for the UK. These options are really the bare minimum you would expect to find. For this reason, and the things we have already found out about this store we don’t believe customer support is going to be very reliable in the event you have a complaint.
This store has a testimony page on their site for CanadaPharm24.com reviews. As you might expect all the feedback found on this testimonial page is incredibly positive.
Unfortunately, it is common to find that scam online pharmacies are using in fake customer comments to try to reassure potential customers that they are a reliable online source of medication. When we check these comments we find that these exact testimonials are found on thousands of other sites.
With this extract of words found on over 13,000 other web pages, it is very clear that these customer testimonials are fake.
When looking elsewhere online for feedback, we have found a single testimonial on the Trustpilot page for this pharmacy. The comment comes from a very upset customer who found many problems when trying to purchase from this store.
This online pharmacy would like you to believe that they are a reliable Canadian business, as we have shown, this is far from the truth. They have no genuine regulation, are owned by a Russian business and are using fake customer testimonials.
The risks involved with doing business with this pharmacy are not only potential fraud but the likelihood of dangerous fake drugs being sold by this store is also high.
We give this drugstore a rating of 1.2 out of five stars.
Possible alternativesWhile brick and mortar pharmacies are a safe bet any day, online pharmacies are better, cheaper and more convenient.
