Bad operators on the internet outnumber the legitimate and safe CIPA members. The rogues and frauds want you to believe they are real pharmacies but you’ll always be safe if you avoid them and rely on a safe CIPA certified pharmacy.
- CIPA Members never send unsolicited e-mail (spam) advertising their services.
- CIPA Members will not sell controlled substances even with a prescription.
- CIPA Members will not sell any prescription medication without a prescription from your personal physician.
Rogues are websites that engage in a variety of unsafe practices: they sell medications without prescription, won’t tell you who they are or where they are located, or sell substandard – even counterfeit products.
Fraudulent sites are those that masquerade as something they are not: they aren’t Canadian, they aren’t pharmacies, and they certainly aren’t CIPA certified – yet they hijack our seal to deceive you.
The following sites should not be trusted. This list is regularly updated to provide you with current information about mischief on the web. None of these sites are CIPA members.
Canadian Neighbor Pharmacy
Canadian Discounted Pharmacy
My Canadian Pharmacy
Toronto Drugstore (Canadian RX Network)
Green Line Pharmacy
Canadian Online Pharmacy
Other Rogue Pharmacy Websites
Do not deal with a site that contacts you by e-mail and directs you to a site with the name “Canadian Pharmacy,” “Canadian Healthcare”, “Canadian Health and Care Mall” or “drugs5.com”.
These sites all use fraudulent seals and credentials. These sites are the number one source of consumer complaints. Most consumers tell us that their credit card was charged but no shipment was received. If this has happened to you, please contact your credit card company and report this fraud.
Do not deal with any site that contacts you by e-mail and directs you to a site with the name “My Canadian Pharmacy”.
This site changes its “URL” almost everyday and makes outrageous claims about its founders and their credentials. This company is not a CIPA member-and never has been.
NOTE:www.thecanadianpharmacy.com is a member of CIPA and a licensed Canadian pharmacy. You will always see this name in the URL line and it will not change like the sites mentioned above.
