How many times have you been scammed online? I’m in the UK and have been stung twice this week!

Am I the unluckiest guy ever? Two times this week I’ve been scammed and lost money. Anyone else have issues like this? I’ve been out the game a couple of years but never used to have any trouble

Are you dealing with friends of friends here or what? I've went through China with zero issues except the time I had half a kilo of TNE discovered. I didn't respond to that confiscation.

Aren't the british a bit more lax on the whole steroid thing generally? The last time I looked they still allowed more "prohormones" than we do but I don't know if that's still the case.

Having spent a lot of time there I felt they let adults make adult decisions a bit more over there as to what they do with their body.

generally it’s easy easier for us here than the us or some other European countries. Steroids are class C here. Basically not an offence to possess (for personal use) but they do go after the UGL’s and dealers.

lots of substances (ph’s and stuff like SD) is legal otc here as well, that’s simply as they haven’t got round to banning it yet.

Do brick and mortar shoppes over there sell SD and things like that to walk-in traffic?

What was their response to the fact that you never received a package after payment?

You need to find a legit source here. Hang around, make some friends, and you'll find a legit source with quality products. BH is a good site to start.

For once GNC had something worth buying for.
I know this is going way off topic, but I will always have fond memories of GNC.

Worked there my junior & senior year of high school. Quickly formed a close friendship with the store manager. Any time he needed gas/lunch money he'd have me pick an item in the store and he'd cut me a deal. A "deal" normally consisted of him dropping said product on the ground and saying "Damaged product, can't sell that!" I'd hand him a $10 or $20 and that was that. My closet was FULL of supplements. My parents were concerned, to say the least. But man, do I miss paying $10 for a tub of OG SizeOn or $20 for a 5 lb tub of whey.. Haven't been to a GNC since.

I had a manager in the pub I used to work in a bit like that. He’d add a load of beer onto the ullage and we’d pay him 50% direct for it.......no wonder I ended up an alcoholic 😂

We all loved working there. I ended up enlisting in the military and shortly after leaving, most of the staff at the store was fired for theft :LOL:

I had already told em that in the original complaint, said they'd investigate blablabla, then they come back with case closed and i couldn't even appeal because the listing then ceased to exist with no trace of the sale, i think they knew what it was and thought it serves him right for trying to buy dodgy sh!t on our platform
