Bad operators on the internet outnumber the legitimate and safe CIPA members. In fact, there are only 74 websites that are accredited by CIPA. The rogues and frauds want you to believe they are real pharmacies so beware, and be sure to avoid them by relying on a safe CIPA certified pharmacy.
- CIPA Members never send unsolicited e-mail (spam) advertising their services.
- CIPA Members will not sell controlled substances or narcotics 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.

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.
Many sites changes their “URL” almost everyday and make outrageous claims about their credentials.
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.
