Domain Name Information
This internet pharmacy has been online for quite a long time. The domain name has been registered since 2014, and this could show them to be less likely to be a scam.
Normally we might expect to find details of the owner of the site and where they are located. Unfortunately, though, there isn’t any such information provided in the records. This might be nothing to do with the pharmacy themselves, however, but it doesn’t give a good impression of transparent business.
This pharmacy uses the site logo that says “Canadian Pharmacy”, and they also give us an address in Canada. However, there are some rather major issues with this address.
The address they give cannot be found and appears to be fake. For example, Montreal is in Quebec that has a province code of QC, their address says RC, which doesn’t make any sense.
Boulvar Drive also doesn’t seem to exist either in Canada or anywhere in the world. A business that is using a fake address isn’t one you should put your trust in.
This pharmacy offers some impressive certification from regulatory organizations. These include the Department for Health and Human Services, CIPA, and Pharmacy Checker.
The seals displayed here allow you to click on them. This would normally mean that you would be taken to the website of the organization concerned and shown a page to validate the pharmacy. This doesn’t happen here, however.
Instead, you get a small pop-up window showing a certificate. This is not what we would expect, and it is wrong. These are fake certificates claiming accreditation when in reality, they probably don’t have any.
When we check with LegitScript, we can see that they are classified as a rogue business. Lacking the correct accreditation to operate their business safely for customers.
This store is selling mostly generic pills, with a clear focus on the men’s health market. Their prices are far from the lowest we’ve seen online, however.
On the product pages of the site, they don’t give you any information about where the pills are manufactured or dispensed from. Elsewhere on the site, they do mention that the pills are sent from the USA and India. However, we suspect that most of the pills are from India.
No further information is offered about where the pills are from, and this creates a big potential risk. Given what we already know about this pharmacy, it seems highly likely that the pills are from illegitimate sources, and that they are a low-quality.
The checkout pages of this site are secured, just like the rest of the store. This is good and shows that not everything is bad with this pharmacy. They let you pay using:
- American Express
Shipping is free on orders over $150. Otherwise, airmail will cost you $15 per order. The expected delivery time is between 30 and 45 days, however. This is likely due to the current pandemic, though not great if you need your meds in a hurry.
There are MyMedicStar.com reviews displayed right on the front page of the pharmacy. They appear to be from customers who are very happy with the medications they’ve received.
There are some problems that suggest these aren’t genuine testimonials. All of the customers only talk about the pills and how well they work, with no mention of the actual pharmacy store itself. This makes it seem like these comments aren’t real, and fake testimonials would fit in with the other fake information we’ve found on this store.
Though this drugstore has been online for a fairly long time, there are a lot of reasons to suggest that they aren’t a reliable source of meds. They are using a fake address, fake accreditation, and fake testimonials.
