Scammed! The Worst Feeling
in the world. i've just recently been scammed out of $335 hard earned bucks and it's just an awful feeling. especially since the guy got a hold of me from this AR board and said so many things to reasure me he wasn't a scammer. i feel like such a sucker. now i'm a month away from my cycle end, barely have any nolva left and zero clomid.
has anyone else been scammed before? i implore all newbies not to bite at any solicitations from any from other members...even if they're senior status. they're praying on your desperateness. don't let the fact that they have thousands posts and senior status on this board fool you, it means nothing. they're probabably scamming a lot of other people on this board, don't be one of them like me.

this is exactly why I do not understand why u people buy "gear" off of sites like this one...I mean, Anabolic review is great for information, but thats it....I always buy off a bro from the gym and get decent prices doing it....

Sorry to hear it bro, check your PM's.

i didn't have any other options at the time, and didn't know any sources at my gym, that's why he got me. i just hope the next poor sapp that is about to do the same thing down the road, does a search and sees my post first.

I think you should mention that it's important to check with the MODs and VETs BEFORE you purchase gear from anyone, not after you've sent the money. If you don't verify your source before you purchase, you will get scammed as you found out, the hard way. Not everyone on AR is out to get you. There are many good people on this board (who have nothing to do with sourcing or scamming) who are here to help you.
If anyone approches you and offers to help you buy gear based on something you've written in a post or contacts you out of the blue, DO NOT TRUST THAT PERSON. Immediately contact SEVERAL MODs and VETS and tell them that you've been solicited by a member of the board.
Whenever you ask for a verification, contact more than just one or two MODs and VETS.
If someone tells you only to contact a certain MOD or VET, be wary. Always check with several MODs and VETs when you need a source verified.
NOTE: I do not and will not give out source names. I will only verify if a source is good or not.

we feel your pain. so many bros have gone through the same thing
05-24-2004, 07:11 PM #14
Best way to do it imo is to purchase from the labs themselves, then theres no middle man. Sorry to hear about your loss bro
05-24-2004, 07:17 PM #15
I want to know who scammed you...shoot me a pm
05-24-2004, 07:19 PM #16
why not just post on the open forum. its not like you are posting a source. you are posting a fake source.

im assuming that you're talking about UG gear...because, as far as i know, you can't buy human grade or vet grade gear directly from the company
05-24-2004, 07:20 PM #18

The guy has done it before and has yet to be banned. Hopefully his IP addy will get banned not just his name. Dont want him to come back as someone else and do it all over again

If you know 100% sure that youve been scammed(as opposed to it only being 6 days since you sent funds and still havent gotten your pack), then you need to post the member name. We all need to be warned.

I agree... all known scammers should be at the very least banned and their user names posted...
(Personally I rather see their eye lids ripped off... but thats just me)
Scammers are pieces of S-H-I-T!!!

what happened was that a couple months ago, i paid $50 to AR for their worthless source directory. I got some sources off of it and pm'd some senior members for a source check on them. I should have stuck to vets and mods, but didn't. this member was one of the few that i pm'd and he told me to stay away from them for various reasons. then he said he usually doesn't do this but he asked if i had a secure email acct. i didn't, but then got a hushmail acct and pm'd him back. he then sent me a list of gear and his prices. i didn't even know he was a source himself.
he asked me to mail him the $620 hard cash express mail. then he sent me $285 worth of gear...QV test-e and some clen . all of the rest was just anti-e's and pct ancillaries. he said that stuff is coming and then never sent it to me and after i let a month and a half go w/o contacting him, i tried to contact him a couple weeks ago to see what the status of everything is and he won't return any pm's or hushmails.
that's exactly what happend. i have heard that i'm not the first member on this board to have this exact same thing happen to from this same member.
it's also important that i mention what bask mentioned. i pm'd a few vets/mods about this member, but i stupidly sent him the money before i got and solid answer on him. the mods knew him, but didn't know he was a source and told me there's a chance i could get scammed b/c he wasn't on their confirmed list. i know it isn't smart or logical for me to have sent him the money and if i were reading this from someone else, i'd be thinking what y'all are thinking, i'm sure. i was in a hurry for no reason, trusted all of the reasuring things he said to me, was gambling in a sense, and just plain stupid. that's it. just wanted to share so someone else in my same situation down the road won't do what i did.

you made a mistake in the past. charge it to experience bro but i feel your pain. i also couldnt find any sources and have stil yet to find but im trying to find a dealer incarnate. its more reliable. as for the guy who scammed you, get all the facts and the approval of the mods, vets. scammers names should be posted to insure integrity on the ar board and to prevent others from getting scammed as well. good luck

you know, i just thought of something...it doesn't help when i chose a dumb screen name as new.to.gear. i might as well chosen a name like newbie sucker who you can easily steal from. haha. not long after i chose that name i wanted to change it but didn't want to lose my history.
anyway, i will post the name for everyone's sake down the road after approval. who knows, maybe he'll get me the stuff at the end of my 3 month cycle after all of this and the fear of being banned. but i highly doubt it. but i'll hold off for right now.
thanks again everyone for the empathy.
