Online-Secure-Shop.com is a pharmacy site which claims to offer the highest quality generic drugs. They also boast of having over seven years of experience and claim to reship for free if there is an issue. We examine these claims to, unfortunately, find that the owner of this store is quite happy to lie at every opportunity to get a sale.

The domain information for this online pharmacy shows us that the store is pretty new, having only been created in 2017. We can also see that it will need to be renewed in a couple of months. This pattern of a newly registered domain and a short expiration date is common to find with scam online drugstores.
We also find that the owner has chosen to use a privacy service to keep their real name and contact information out of the record. This is another common pattern found with rip off drugstores.
One problem is immediately apparent to us when visiting this store. The logo on the site doesn’t match the domain name.
You may think that this isn’t a big issue, but you wouldn’t expect such a strange contradiction from a well-known business. The reason why there is a logo mismatch is because this store has been uploaded to many different web servers using different domain names.
Also, the site isn’t secure with an SSL certificate, so the domain name is clearly wrong. This really isn’t a secure online shop.
Mirror and Related Sites
There is an unknown number of duplicate stores to this one currently selling pills online. Some of them will be identical to this one, many more will be using the same text, selling the same products, but using a different theme and graphics.
These stores are part of an affiliate network of stores often known as ‘Online Pharmacy’ which point to a smaller number of hub payment sites. They are likely owned by the same entity which could be linked to organized crime.
Business Name and Address
A business name and address are posted on the contact page of this store. This would normally be a good sign of a reputable business, but not in this case.
We have seen the business name ‘Europharm Group Inc.’ show up on many other highly dubious sites. This business name doesn’t appear in any official databases that we have seen and they don’t have a corporate website. It seems likely that this name is fake, just used to give the appearance of a reputable and established business.
The address they give is a genuine location. We don’t, however, believe that the owner of this store has offices in this location. They may operate a mailbox which diverts post to somewhere else from this address.
The real location of the people operating this pharmacy and the countless mirrors is more likely to be a high-risk country like Russia, China or Pakistan. We can’t be certain though, due to the lengths these owners have used to hide from their customers.
Legal Approvals and Certifications
This store displays some seals for Canadian regulatory associations. This is particularly strange as they make no mention of being in Canada at any point.
You should be able to click on seals like these to check that they are valid. That isn’t the case here and the reason is clear when we check with one of the associations they claim membership with. Searching the CIPA database confirms that the use of their seal is fraudulent.
LegitScript has investigated this online pharmacy and concluded that they are a rogue store. This is unsurprising and confirms what we have already shown.
Medications on Sale
The site says they sell brand name pills as well as generic. The range of medicine offered seems fairly good but the focus of the site is clearly for the selling of men’s health pills, even giving some away with each order. The drugs are dispatched from India which may present some risks of counterfeit or low-quality pills.
The site says, that when you place an order a doctor will check the information you provide and write a prescription if you are approved. However, we very much doubt that any of this actually happens as most of the drugs sold shouldn’t and couldn’t be prescribed by a doctor without a genuine consultation.
Online-Secure-Shop.com Discount Coupon
Sorry, we haven’t been able to locate a discount for this store. Though, bearing in mind what we know about it, this is probably for the best.
Payments and Deliveries
The store says that you are able to purchase pills using Mastercard, Visa, American Express and Bitcoin. However, when we are redirected to the payment hub during the checkout process, this turns out not to be the case.
Though there are check-boxes for all the payment methods, only two of them actually work – Mastercard and Bitcoin. If you click on the other two, a warning message pops up telling you the payment method isn’t available.
Shipping is by either airmail or express mail. Express mail costs $24.95 with delivery expected in 3 to 8 days and a tracking number available. Airmail costs $14.95 and delivery can take as long as 4 weeks. There is free airmail delivery if you order $200 of products and free express mail on orders over the value of $300. A delivery insurance charge of $6.95 is added to all orders, though you can opt out of this.
The store claims it offers “Qualified Support”, though along with all the other problems we have discovered with this store, we have strong doubts about this. If you have complaints with your order don’t be surprised if you get the run around from customer support. You will likely be lied to and told fake information, as other customers who have purchased from stores like this one have.
If you have read this far into this review, it should come as no surprise that the Online-Secure-Shop.com reviews posted to the store are actually fake. They can also be found on the countless other mirror stores and do not represent real customer feedback.
This drugstore is far from great, lacking genuine regulation, customer feedback or a real business name. In fact, it seems that they are perfectly happy to lie about anything to get you to make a purchase on this scam site. This naturally increases the likelihood of receiving fake or counterfeit medication from this store.
We give this site just 1.2 out of 5.
Please look elsewhere for a reliable pharmacy.
