Unmasking Online Pharmacy Scams: How to Spot Fake Ones and Protect Your Health

Let’s chat about something important—fraudulent pharmacies.

It’s a sad fact that thousands of people have lost millions of dollars to these online pharmacy scams.

But here’s the kicker: it’s not just about losing money. Lately, some crooks have been pretending to be FDA (Food and Drug Administration) officials. They’ve been calling up folks who’ve bought meds online and telling them that buying from an online pharmacy is illegal, demanding hefty fines. Sneaky, right?

Now, here’s the real deal: the FDA won’t be calling you for money. That’s a big red flag. So, how can you protect yourself from these pharmacy shakedowns?

Check out these tips:

  1. Verify Contact Info: First things first, check if the pharmacy’s contact info is legit. Test those phone numbers and email addresses they give you. It’s a way to make sure you’re dealing with a legal online pharmacy, not a scam.
  2. Word of Mouth: See what the grapevine has to say. Check if others vouch for the website. Look for recommendations or folks warning that the site might be a fake online pharmacy on a list of scams.
  3. Certificates Matter: Take a peek at the certificates on the website. Check the links too. Trust your gut – if something looks fishy, it probably is. Legit online pharmacies usually have all their certificates in order.
  4. Watch for Blacklists: Some experts keep tabs on fraudulent pharmacies and create blacklists. If you stumble upon a pharmacy that’s on one of these lists, double-check with another source to be sure it’s accurate before you steer clear.
  5. Be a Hero – Report Them: If you do spot a shady site, report it to the authorities. You’ll be helping others stay safe from fake prescriptions online and online pharmacy scams.

Signs of an Illegitimate Online Pharmacy

There are many illegitimate online pharmacies that sell drugs that may have dangerous ingredients or inaccurate dosages, which poses a worrisome health risk.  According to one Canadian official website, an online Canadian pharmacy may be illegitimate if it:

  • Does not require a valid prescription
  • Offers drugs that claim to have a “miracle cure” for serious conditions
  • Offers drugs at very low, discounted prices
  • Can ship drugs worldwide
  • Does not provide a “bricks and mortar” business address
  • Is located outside of Canada
