Canadian Neighbor Pharmacy is an Eva Pharmacy fraud.
|Canadian Neighbor Pharmacy (CNP) is another Bulker.biz property. Control of this organization has been attributed to the spammer using the pseudonym Alex Polyakov. The same group of scam pharmacy brands is referred to as "Eva Meds" by Knujon and LegitScript, and as "Yambo Financials" by Spamhaus.
"EvaPharmacy presents a new Canadian pharmacy sales template. It differs significantly in design and contents from our previous CAD templates. The new store is colorful, easy to use for the buyer, and contains new sections and features. It should also be noted that a Canadian brand is the best way to attract customers, since Canada is known as a producer of high quality pharmaceutical products at affordable prices. Testing shows the template creates trust among customers, and as a result, gives us a paycheck! Try out the new template by activating your account on EvaPharmacy - http://antichat.evapharmacy.ru As usual, more information can be obtained from our a support - ICQ 269082060. Sincerely, Team EvaPharmacy
In August 2010, they edited posts to change the ICQ number to 750000 and add a Jabber address, email@example.com. They also specified that they do not accept sales from Uzbekistan or the CIS (former Soviet republics).
Like other Bulker.biz sites, just about every claim made on CNP sites is a lie.
We're sure the nice people pictured on their "About Us" page are real. They just aren't doctors or pharmacists or spammers or anyone else associated with these sites. They are models from Getty Images, and their photographs were assembled into a single picture with photo editing software. They didn't even bother to flip them right to left to make the lighting consistent:
The original photos:
Headquarters 1210 Midhurst Dr, Vancouver, OT 76313, Canada
Those familiar with Canada, a country whose geography has been well-documented, will know there is no province whose postal abbreviation is "OT." There's Ontario, which is "ON," but Vancouver doesn't happen to be located there.
On the other hand, the skyline in their photo is Toronto, Ontario -- though they've again edited the photo to paste their logo on the photo of one of the buildings. The actual photo shows it should be a Hilton logo:
Local Office 1225 Rue De Bleury, Montreal, QC H3B Canada
But that location is a construction site, as can be seen on Google street view. A check on the Sidev.com website confirms that no building on that site was completed and leased in the interval after this photo was taken:
International Orders Department 1300 Smith St., Houston, TX 77002 USA
USA Branch Office 503 W Olympic Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90015 USA
But there is no building at 503 W. Olympic. The Renaissance Tower Apartments, at 501 W. Olympic, take up the entire block. The building looks nothing like the one in their picture.
Refund Policy Dear customer, we stand behind our products and services! This is a risk free offer! Within the 14 days of receiving your order, you may return any item shipped by Canadian Neighbor Pharmacy for any of the following reasons: * Item was received damaged or defective; * Incorrect item was shipped.
Sounds great. But which of the above fake addresses should you ship your returned product to?
These sites are operating completely illegally. They aren't going to give you a real address, even if you contact them after delivery to get your return "authorized." (The FBI could easily place a bait order and call to get a return authorized, then be waiting by the post office box for them to pick up their mail.) And anyway, you won't be able to contact them after your order arrives, if anything arrives at all, because the website will most likely be shut down by then.
The pharmacy has no real location and no real pharmacists. But like other Bulker.biz pharmacies, they have forged an imaginary license for their pharmacy. They didn't bother to have the address agree with the other addresses on their website.
The Ontario College of Pharmacy (not "College of Pharmacists of Ontario) has a website that allows you to look up their licensees. Not surprisingly, Canadian Neighbor Pharmacy isn't listed.
Fake American Pharmacists Association CertificateEdit
This task apparently fell to one of the non-native English speakers, because it is quite clumsily worded:
All the drugs sold at Canadian Neighbor Pharmacy are considered to be approved by the American Pharmacists Association (APhA). This bulletin certifies that Canadian Neighbor Pharmacy (License Number 05850848) sells high-quality medications that are presented by certified online shop. We ensure that Canadian Neighbor Pharmacy team has the highest standards of practice carried out by its members. The American Pharmacists Association (APhA) is the organization whose members are recognized in society as essential in all patient care settings for optimal medication use that improves health, wellness, and quality of life. Date: 07/04/10 Signature: Harold N. Godwin
This certificate, viewed as of this writing in June 2010, appears to be dated in the future. Actually, whoever did the forgery was unfamiliar with the fact that in the U.S., dates are in month-day-year format, rather than day-month-year. They were trying to make it look like an April 7, 2010 date. When asked if this certificate was fake, the reply from the American Pharmacists Association was
Yes, this is a fake. Thanks for passing along to us. Sharon Corbitt External Communications Director American Pharmacists Association 2215 Constitution Ave. Washington, DC 20037-2895
Fake Better Business Bureau SealEdit
At the bottom of each page of the site, there is a seal claiming the site is accredited by the Better Business Bureau. Clicking on a real BBB seal should link to a company's ratings page on BBB's website. But CNP links to a page on their own website with a forged BBB rating. They have even got the chutzpah to have created a fake complaint and resolved it satisfactorily.
Reason for Rating
BBB rating is based on 16 factors.
Factors that lowered Canadian Neighbor Pharmacy's rating include:
On this company's multiple website, they supply two different local addresses for Canadian Neighbor Pharmacy in Vancouver. Upon a detail review of these addresses, the BBB notes that these addresses do not appear to be valid, and complaints forwarded to the company by the BBB have been returned in the mail.
1210 Midhurst Dr, Vancouver OT 76313. This address does not appear to be a valid address. "OT" is neither listed as a province or state. 76313 is not a valid postal or zip code.
1241 Commercial Dr, Vancouver BC V5L 3X2, Canada Post website confirms that while 1241 Commercial Dr is a valid street address, this is not the correct postal code for this address.
As of November 12, 2010, although this company claims affiliation with the College of Pharmacists in Ontario, the College has advised the BBB that Canadian Neighbor Pharmacy is not a licensed Pharmacy in Ontario.
Fake PharmacyChecker sealEdit
pharmacychecker.com issues seals of approval to validated genuine pharmacies. The PharmacyChecker Verification Program was established in 2003 to help consumers find qualified online pharmacies and is the only independent evaluator of U.S. and non-U.S. online pharmacies. The PharmacyChecker Seal indicates that websites market prescription drugs dispensed from pharmacies in good standing in the countries where they are located.
Canadian Neighbor Pharmacy, being a fraud, pretends it has the seal of approval by displaying a fake seal on their sites.
Fake CIPARx SealEdit
The Canadian International Pharmacy Association maintains a list of member pharmacies. Those pharmacies can legitimately display the CIPARx seal on their websites. Clicking on the seal links to a page on http://www.ciparx.ca . But in the case of CNP, it links on another one of their fake certificates posted on their own website.
Clicking the CIPARx seal on a CNP website brings you the above certificate. What it should have done if brought you to a page on ciparx.ca something like this:
Many scam pharmacies have fake testimonials. CNP has gone over the top in number and detail. There are American spammers involved in Bulker.biz, so you don't get the same humorous broken English from "satisfied customers" who are supposedly Americans. But there are plenty of obvious lies. Let's look at some of them.
About 4 months ago me, my husband and our four-year-old son were on our way back home from a party when suddenly a dog appeared on the road right in front of our car. My husband tried to avoid the collision but in vain. As a result the dog was dead and our car got into a ditch beside the road. Taking into consideration that it was quite stressful even for me what can I say about the state of my son! Time passed but he still quite depressed and he often screams in his sleep. Our doctor advised me to by Zoloft for him. I give him half a pill from time to time and he definitely feels better. I hope that soon his nervous system would be completely restored! – Diane Markey, 41
But doesn't the vignette mention that the doctor advised its use? Well, hello, we've already established they're making this stuff up. There's no doctor, no 4 year old, no dog -- and no Zoloft. All they are selling is generics. And you can get 90 tabs of 25 mg generic sertraline for under $40 at a major legal US pharmacy as of this writing, June 2010. The CNP price for sertraline without prescription, same dose but uncertain origin -- is $104.40, over 2.5 times HIGHER than from a legal pharmacy. They're selling unprescribed drugs for off-label uses to people who don't take their children to doctors. If a doctor had recommended the drug, he would have provided a prescription, and the family could have purchased the generic sertraline legally at a much lower price.
I am very happy with Zithromax. I was suffering from a very strong vaginal yeast infection that was unaffected by 3 doses of diflucan, and several doses of the over the counter drugs available. I took Zithromax and the yeast infection went away in a matter of days. – Susan, Washington
When you loaded a CNP site, you found that the web site and the images used were being loaded from a range of different IP addresses. For example, take superharmacytablets.com, which was operational in July 2010.
The following day, the site was at 220.127.116.11 (China) and the images were being loaded from different servers:
and the fake CIPARx logo was being loaded from
Each of these IP addresses represented a site that has been hijacked, and taken over to provide services to these criminals, without the knowledge of the owners. The method used to infiltrate and take over these sites has been documented, together with cleaning instructions at pharmalert.zoomshare.com.
How to Report this SpamEdit
The Complainterator is configured to report this spam to the registrars. It performs a "whois" lookup on the domain names used by the name servers that resolve access to the web site.
