Placed an order for 1G of AF-AKB48 on 7/17 through their website. the price was reasonable.

finishing the order form it required the money be tranfered via Western Union to Claire Lynn in Leeds UK,  the form required that the order number be placed in the subject of the Western Union tranfer however the Western Union online tranfer form had no such "subject" area to put the order number in.

Currently the order on MegaChems sight says "Waiting for code from Western Union" tho I have put the tracking code from Western Union for the transfer into the "Message" area of the order on Megachems sight.

I also received a discount code from them in my email which was invalid at checkout.

 thus far emails have gone unanswered and my order still looks uncomplete and no confirmation of it being shipped or finished has been received, I hope I did not get ripped off.

 I am hoping someone reads this report and can confirm if this company is legit or not.

Asking money order indicates scam.,

AUTHOR: Michael - ()

After reading this report I was surprised to learn someone paid by money order because MegaChems.com (NOT-TO be confused with MegaChem.com which is a different website) consistently mentions they are authorised to accept payment methods through VISA card, Mastercard & PayPal but says nothing about money orders except-until at the very last second of trying to make a purchase at checkout where the only option of payment method is suddenly through a money order. Why a money order? Simply because once the money is in the scammer's possession there's virtually no recourse a victim can realistically take which is why scammers most often will only accept payments through money orders or else victims have legal recourses to pursue unlike money orders where most often even our authoritative agencies' hands are tied, as in "Let The Buyer Beware" & "There's A Sucker Born Every Minute". Only scam websites will pretend to accept different forms of payment up until the very last second upon checkout when the only option of payment method is through money order. The reason I just got through trying to make a purchase from megachems.com was to find out for myself if they accepted payments other than money orders and so I registered like normal, filled out all the necessary forms to purchase by credit/debit card and chose shipping method but when it came time to chose payment method the only option was through a money order and so I deleted all my information as best I could and migrated over here to present this comment. All 100% honest websites willl never-ever try to trick victims at the very last second of checkout procedures to pay only by money order as only scammers do that and anyone who tries to pretend to give credence to megachems.com is of course part of the scam itself and is not-to be believed. Megachems.com is indeed a 100% SCAM and there's no if's, and's or but's about it. Furthermore there was another clear indicator on how the website claims to ship illegal products for free to anywhere in the world making it rather way too good to be true and so let it be known that MegaChems.com is indeed a criminal website to be avoided.

This company is a ripoff

AUTHOR: John - ()

 They are a fake website. Claire Lynn ripped off someone I know as well. Same thing money was picked up in Leed UK and no response back, order still shows waiting for Westen Union number. Some research shows they are based in Asia and this Claire Lynn somehow is stealing the money for the fake orders.

Got MOST of the money back from Western Union

AUTHOR: Jeremy - ()

In Megachems defense they never picked up the money.

Western Union was able to refund MOST of the money, all I am out is 5 dollars both ways.

Megachems may be a subsiduary of Western Union just trying to get transfer fees off of people for nothing and generate business in a bad economy.

or Megachems could just be a bunch of jerks that like to pretend they are a legit business who knows!

just don't waste your time and money with them plenty of other legit fish in the sea!
