Texas chemist is an alleged online chemist that claims to have been selling quality drugs for over 12 years. All their drugs, as they claim, are produced by renowned Indian drug manufactures and approved by the Indian FDA. We think that these claims are baseless and that the website is a fraudulent website. Here is a comprehensive review of the website.

Texas chemist seems to have a secure connection which is quite good. Online shoppers are usually advised to shop with e-commerce websites that are HTTP secure to avoid attacks by online fraudsters. An e-commerce website that isn’t HTTP secure is usually associated with numerous counts of malicious attacks and customers can lose their important credentials like passwords and credit card information to online fraudsters, a trend used by most scam websites. Therefore, based on its secure connection, we couldn’t label the website as a scam yet.
According to website.informer.com, trusted chemist’s domain was first created on January 16, 2018, and is set to expire at the same time in 2019. This is quite a short period for a website that claims to have been operational for over 12 years. Most scam websites barely last over a year and we think the website follows the same trend with the aim of scamming people before quitting the industry.
Texas chemist seems not to have a recognized business name. According to their ‘about us’ page, they go by the name Texas chemist which isn’t accredited by bbb.org. However, the business has made its physical addresses as well as location, and contacts available which are commendable of the website. Most scam websites use a service to hide their identity and it becomes difficult to race its location in case of any queries.
Texas chemist seems to lack website related to it. This is quite impressive since most scam websites are usually associated with numerous other suspicious websites. What we noticed however is that the website has critically low ratings on scam adviser. Furthermore, the website is based in the US but could originally be from the Russian Federation, a country known to have many complains of online fraud as well as smuggled and substandard drugs.
Therefore, since the website is related to a high-risk country and given that it is too new with a short life expectancy, we can conclude that the website is fake and could be involved in fraudulent online activities.
Approvals from Necessary Regulatory Authorities
Usually, it is appropriate for online drugstores to have approvals from the necessary regulatory authorities to ensure that they sell high-quality drugs. Since Texas chemist is an online drugstore it ought to have been approved to sell drugs online. As such, we had to look for the website on the major regulatory authority, CIPA to check if it really is approved.
To our surprise, the website isn’t on CIPA database meaning it is not approved to sell drugs. Furthermore, it has been listed on LegitScript as rogue meaning it could be involved in the sale of substandard drugs.
Payment and Shipment
Texas chemist accepts payments via MasterCard and Visa card. They claim to ship within the US only and that the deliveries are sent via plain discreet packaging. Their main delivery method is first class mail delivery which costs a standard charge of 35 dollars.
Deliveries usually take between two to seven days and lack a tracking system. They claim to offer refunds on orders with failed deliveries or damaged orders.
Reviews are an important aspect of a website. They determine whether the website is fake or real. As a result, we had to look out if had reviews to determine its legitimacy. We noticed that the website has a testimonials page where they have listed a number of comments from customers that shopped with them.
These reviews, however, look fake and generated by the owners of the website. The page doesn’t have an option where new customers can leave their feedback which is suspicious of the website. The website also doesn’t have any comments on third party websites and therefore becomes difficult to trust it.
Texas chemist seems to be an illegitimate website. It is too new and has a short life expectancy, a pattern used by most fake websites. The website also isn’t recognized by any regulatory authority and also has fake reviews. As such the website deserves a 1-star rating.
