The "Facebook Administration Notification and Canadian Family Pharmacy" is a Phishing Scam

The e-mail message below is a phishing scam, which appears as if it came from Facebook. If you click on the links in the e-mail message, you will be taken to the website: medicalwelhealthcare.com. The website is a fake, claiming to sell pharmaceutical products and has the name "Canadian Family Pharmacy."

Facebook Administration has sent you a notification fake email

The first thing that I have noticed about this website is that it doesn't have SSL security on the checkout page. An order or checkout page is where you would enter your personal and credit card information.

SSL (Secure Socket Layer) is used to protect your personal and credit card information by encrypting it before sending it over the internet. All online stores must have SSL security on their order pages because this protects their customers’ information by sending it over a secure connection.

When ordering anything online, ensure that the web address or URL starts with HTTPS:// in your browser's address bar. HTTPS indicates that the connection between your computer and the website that you are ordering from is secure.

HTTPS in browser address

On the website medicalwelhealthcare.com, if you go to their order page at HTTPS://medicalwelhealthcare.com/cart/checkout/, nothing comes up. This is because this website has no SSL security protection and is an indication that it was setup by scammers.

I recommend that you do not order anything from this website medicalwelhealthcare.com.

    Just received this exact email yesterday on my birthday. I'm a voluntary loner estranged from my extended family with very few friends, so became suspicious immediately.

    Decided to do some research before opening it. Glad I did! Thanks for the information!
