buying gear online ??
Hi I had a question about buying gear online .After searching around for awhile I belive I have found a good source the problem is Im not sure I want any info about me at all to be put up for an order ..So the problem is they need a credit card ,address ,contact info .And I understand all this I mean if Im going to buy Ill need to give this information out ..So I guess my question is how safe do you feel about giving information out about yourself to the places your buying from ??

..I'd start by having a mod or a vet run a source check on the site..
..and yes, I'd be VERY hesitant to purchase AAS with a CC.....There are 3 loves in my life: my wife, my English mastiffs, and my weightlifting....Man, my wife gets really pissed when I get the 3 confused...
A minimum of 100 posts and 45 days membership required for source checks. Source checks are performed at my discretion.

I never have bought online. I don't like leaving a paper trail. If your credit card is charged with "gear", and the bank or feds find out... you could be in big trouble.
Just my thoughts. Lot's of other members have ordered from online sources without any problems.

The majority of 'Online SOurces' are scammer's and are grossly overpriced. So be sure to verify your source with a Mod befor ordering or exchanging any personal information. I have had no problems with ordering off 'Online Sources', I did recently with no hassle and fast delivery (No, dont PM me asking anyone).

ROFL buying gear w/ a CC is like asking a cop if he would like to buy some coke ><

This article has a lot of good tips when looking to do some purchasing online.
Only downside is it will make you paranoid as all hell but I guess thats necessary.

Right on guys thanks .I do have an option with WU payment sooo might go that way .When I read the comment buying gear online is like asking a cop for coke that kinda got me laughing because at that moment I was thinking of all the cops at my gym who are on gear well at least one for sure .Maybe the comment should be its like a guy going to by gear asking a cop for what hes got
