Steroid Fakes And Counterfeits
By: Bob Howard
Steroids come in a wide variety of assorted, forms, shapes, sizes, textures, and colors. It's because of such variety that there are more steroid fakes and counterfeit drugs on the market than there are real anabolics. Fakes are plentiful because they are cheap to manufacture and easy to pass on to unsuspecting bodybuilders. To the untrained eye they can be almost identical to the real drug. If you or someone else is purchasing steroids from any source but a close friend or relative, you stand an excellent chance of being taken in by a con artist.
Two types of fakes
With the crackdown on anabolic steroids in the early 1990's, bodybuilders and other athletes have turned to the black-market to obtain the drugs for their cycles. There are basically two types of bogus (fake) steroids on the black market. The first type is not bogus in the usual sense, but rather semi-bogus. They are real steroids, but they have fake labels, and the dosages listed are usually incorrect. Licensed pharmaceutical companies do not manufacture these drugs.
The second group of steroid fakes (which is the more numerous type) are fake in every sense of the word. For example, users have reported buying bottles of clear liquids (such as distilled water) from other athletes. These bottles have no labels and are often not the type of bottle normally associated with the packaging of the drug. To make the steroid seem more legitimate, many fake steroid producers put cooking oils in the bottle. Injecting such a substance into your body is a short cut to developing any number of serious side effects.
Big Money - Big Fakes - Big Con!
As expected steroid fakers are in operation for one purpose; to separate you from your hard-earned money. If someone at the gym promises you any steroid in any quantity, for an "unbelievable price", chances are your're about to be had. The most effective way to spot counterfeits is to compare it to the original. The problem with this, however, is that most bodybuilders have never even seen the original! There is also a pattern between the popularity of the steroid and the number of fakes available. As expected such highly-sought out steroids as Deca-durabolin, Winstrol, and Dianabol, are faked the most. You have to be real careful if you buy these particular drugs.
As of 1991 anabolic steroids are classified as controlled (illegal) substances. Attempting to obtain steroids from an unknown source on the Internet is risky and frankly, stupid. The person on the other end of your keyboard could be some law enforcement agent trying to set you up. At the very least they'll take your money and sell you a steroid fake. In the dangerous world of the steroid black-market it's buyer beware.
