People who take money and falsely promise the supply of goods
are known as "scammers". Other steroid scammer types
send fake gear or clones.
Steroid scammers work largely in anabolic discussion groups on
They pick off the novice who places an advert for the supply of
Here is an example of some of the scams you must be aware of when
you are seeking out a source.
The Source Checker Scammer
Any one who sets themselves up as a source checker is a scammer.
There is one of these con men working in two well know discussion
groups at this very moment. He uses the email address of the discussion
group to make it look like he is authorized.
To further demonstrate his resourcefulness he now has set himself
up as a "UK steroid source checker to the USA" ! "What
a great guy", we hear you say! Using his own time to help
the "bro's" of bodybuilding. (yes and he will likely
call you "bro" ) When you ask this particular "source
checker" about a source he sends you to his 2nd mail address
where there is a "really good bro" ready to help you.
Yes it is the same guy!
This particular scammer is now a moderator on a USA steroid
discussion group (yes that one) and he has infiltrated a well
known UK group also (yes that one).
NEVER deal with or trust anyone who calls themselves
a "source checker". It is the biggest con game in the
steroid Internet world.
The Scammer List
Scammer lists can be comprised of both scamming sources and
reverse scamming customers. You will find lists of scammers all
over the internet on most every forum. You need to be careful
which scammers list you view and make sure that the forum is legit.
It is notable that many sites have emerged selling steroids and
also hosting scammer lists. The scammer list has now become the
tool of the crooked source and the scammers themselves to discredit
On the scammer lists we find genuine scammers and genuine good
and reliable sources. The names of good operators are submitted
to these lists by bitter rivals. Anyone can submit a name to these
lists and there are no rules or requirements of proof.
AnaSCI was established in 2003 and for over 10 years now we have
made sure that scammers - both source and customer have been checked
out and multiple layers of proof are required before a name is added.

BEWARE: Scammers List
Scammers can be both sources and customers
The Scammer list must be viewed from a long established,
legitimate forum as there are many fake sites out there
set up to scam members out of their hard-earned money.
Certain e-zine merchants have popped up on the web claiming
to be experts ( gurus ) in steroids.
They claim to be associated with all kinds of wonderful people
in the hard core bodybuilding world.
They invariably have a few things to sell (usually a steroid bible).
A recent one we researched claims that site injecting does not
The reason for this, according to him, is that if it did, the
glutes would be massive, because that is where steroids are most
That this guy is known as a bufoon is no secret but, joking apart,
steroids is a serious subject when it comes to giving direct advise
to people using chemicals.
This is a case of someone with some pratical knowledge paying
someone to publish a manual and then flogging it on the web. (No
you won't find it in Waterstones).
Sticking a needle in yourself and pumping iron however, does not
qualify you as a steroid "guru".
So here is some advice on site injecting:
The receptors in the upper arms are more favourable to inflation
than the glutes.
Don't get sucked in with e-zine merchants claiming to be connected
and all knowing.
They are mostly amateur bodybuilders and hangers on who want to
sell a subscription to you by preaching some unique and unfounded
point of view. When you sign up to these merchants you will be
spammed with e mails full of worthless, misleading and dangerous
Fortunately this is rare but this creature does occasionally
rear his ugly head.
Often known as reverse scammers.
It works this way. The scammer "buyer" threatens to
put the source on a scammer list unless the source sends the products
(Note our reverence of this list above!!)
There is a little oversight here however. The scammer "buyer"
has never ordered or paid for the products!
It is an extortion.
There are a number of variations here but they are always perpetrated
by a youth with a low IQ and some dysfunctional personality problem.
If you are a source and you get pestered by this kind of brat
then don't bother returning his mail. Just put it on block instantly
and get on with answering the genuine clients. Hopefully the chump
will give up the computer and go back to watching cartoons on
his portable TV.
