Medicationca.com is an online drugstore that claims to be number one in Canada. Surely the best pharmacy in Canada can’t be a scam, can it? Our look at this drugstore shows this is just one of many lies.

Domain Name Information
This pharmacy has been registered for nearly four years, as revealed in the domain name database. This is longer than many drugstores we look at and could indicate that they are not a scam.
The domain database does reveal some information about the owner of this website. It tells us that they are located in Bavaria, Germany, but that is all.
This pharmacy is claiming to be number one in Canada, and this is particularly strange since we previously found some signs that the owner is located in Germany. There are many online pharmacies claiming to be Canadian, so it’s not particularly surprising for us to find another one that’s lying about it.
The store does not give a business address for a location in Canada or anywhere else. If you want to contact the store, you will have to fill out their online form and hope you’ll get a reply that way.
There are customer support phone numbers, but these aren’t even Canadian. The site is using UK telephone numbers, though, in reality, you’re probably redirected to India or somewhere else.
This pharmacy provides no indication that they have regulatory approval to be selling medicine online. They do not have regulatory seals for a Canadian pharmacy or for one that is operated out of the EU.
When we check with one of the largest Canadian regulatory associations, CIPA, we can see that they are not a member. This lack of regulation makes the pharmacy seem more like a scam.
The store is selling brand and generic men’s health drug varieties. Prices on the store do get fairly low if you order high volumes, but even then, this isn’t the cheapest we’ve seen online.
The store doesn’t think to tell us who the generic manufacturer is, and we don’t know where the pills are dispensed from either. This problem ramps up the risks for customers and increases the chance that the store is a scam.
There is a greater chance with his pharmacy that the pills are low-quality since we do not know where they are manufactured. If you are relying on meds from this store, you might find they produce adverse results and actually make your health worse than better.
Payment occurs on a different website that does have some security, though we do not believe their claims of additional protection from companies like McAfee are actually real.
You can only buy your meds from this pharmacy using Canadian dollars, and you can choose to pay through the following methods:
■ American Express
The pharmacy offers two shipping choices. They have international unregistered mail that will take between 2 and 3 weeks at a cost of CAD 12.40. Courier delivery that includes tracking will cost CAD 37.20 and take between 5 and 9 business days. If you spend more than $200, they will give you free unregistered mail.
The pharmacy also wants to charge you package delivery insurance at a cost of $7.38. This is something that is normally included for free from reputable retailers, but instead, they charge for it here and this could further indicate a scam.
The pharmacy does give a product rating for each item they sell out of 5, however, it doesn’t give us the option to check customer feedback, probably indicating at least fake. There isn’t a page for MedicationCA.com reviews on the website, and we can’t find any on independent websites either.
Given that we are told by the pharmacy that they are Canada’s number one, it’s strange to find zero customer feedback anywhere.
There are a lot of problems with this pharmacy, starting with the fact that they aren’t really the Canadian pharmacy they claim to be. The owner of the website seems to be in Germany, and we aren’t entirely sure where the pills are dispensed from, but it’s not Canada.
The pharmacy lacks any regulation or any sign that this is a reputable business. Don’t choose this store, we give them 20% of trust.
