    Tips To Spot Fake Gear

    Found this on another site and thought it was very useful

    Tips to Spot Fakes

    There are many webistes selling anabolics and while there are several good sources, many of them offer fake gear. The following info you should already know...

    Amp: Amps are difficult to copy, it is almost always real if in an Amp. However, if the lettering on the amp is easily scratched off with your fingernail it's probably fake.

    Vial: Vials have a metal ring and a rubber stopper. On many fakes, the ring can be rotated with your hand but not on a real product. Additionally, if you see any air bubbles in the glass that is not good.

    Expiration Date: On all gear, there should be an expiration date and lot number. On legitimate products, they are burned, stamped, or ink jet sprayed on the box and or label. On many fakes, they are printed with the label -- maybe not in the same color ink -- but in the same print process. It is always a separate process on the real deal.

    American Domestic Drugs:
    They don't ever show up anywhere where you can buy them, if you do see them - they are fake.

    Liquid Level Test: One of the best tests. When purchasing multiple vials or amps, be sure to line them up in a row to make sure the liquid is all the same level. On fakes, often the liquid will not be even in all bottles.

    Labels: Take a close look at the printing and spelling. It's almost unbelievable, but on there are often mispellings on labels of fakes. Take a good look at the quality of the label, that is also quite telling.

    As always, if in doubt pass on the offer! You are ingesting or injecting this, make sure you get the real deal! It's just that simple.

    There is plenty of fake amps out there... And all those things are specific to having recieved the gear. You want to make sure your source is legit BEFORE you fork over your cash.

    I bought fake winny amps. People told me that if it seperates than it is real. Well my stuff seperated the white liquid and clear liquid and it was still fake?

    Depends.

    If there is no active content and its just oil - no results.

    It could still have the exact same contends as the real stuff.

    But obviously your paying more for pharm grade for the name and assurance of quality.

    I am not sure about online sources. Everyone I have found says westernunion only is this a common thing? I really find that to be strange!

    Its a pretty simple question. There are many other ways to pay for things online other then wire transfers. I was just not sure if this was common which is all I asked. I have bought several things and never was a wire transfer the only option in payment

    that's kind of a silly question bro, I ordered an engine for one of my cars and the seller only accepted Western Union, does that mean it's a fake engine?
    the payment methods accepted could in no way determine the quality of the gear.

    I know that the method you order it has nothing to do with wether the gear is fake or not I was just wondering if they only accept western union does that make the place that im geting my gear from fake like are they trying to rip me off because they dont accept any other types of payment method. But I found out what I was looking for but thanks for the reply.

    No dude this is not correct at all. There are other ways of paying for things, western union is just the most common these days.
    There are other methods such as Alert Pay Pay Pal and many others. We will leave this conversation at that, nothing else needs to be said.

    nice to know, but many fake things are very hard to spot especially if you don't have a trained eye for it nor you don't have a point of comparison. It will also be nice to include steroids that are unusually cheap and that comes from a shady place or person, then it is most probably fake. And it will be best to compare the real thing by researching in the net what it is supoose to look like and then compare it to the ones sold. But then again it will be hard to distinguish which is which you just have to stay informed for a lesser chance of getting the fake ones..

    I thought you said air bubbles in the glass, this is an obviously a sign of poor quality manufacturing.

    If its an online source you can go to the websites of whatever brand names of the gear there selling. Most websites will have a place where you can put in the name of the source and they will tell you if there a legit supplier of there products. Some sources wont be on their lists but if they are then you know their real.

    this is a long shot but is there anywhere in australia where i can get it tested ? considering its illegal over here im guessing no .... thought id ask....

    the bloke i brought from took me into his house met him through a gym a worked at so he'd have to be pretty stupid to sell me fake gear , now i know where he lives etc but after reading your post kale i began to think ....

    what you reckon sell it to some one else and wait 4 legit gear? or bite the bullet do a few shots and hope for best ? if it works great if not sell 2nd bottle etc ....

    whats worst that could happen to me if i inject fake gear ?

    Your call, he could well have made it himself and it could be OK. Worst that can happen is that it isnt sterile and you end up getting an absis. Not sure I would risk that but thats just me. Why not approach him and tell him you know how to spot fake gear and tell him why and that if you get sick you will burn his house down, that may work
