Scammed By Couture Labs

my first purchase was small as i was just testing the lab. everything came ok, so i went ahead and made a second, larger order. which never came. after contacting the lab rep he fed me some bullshit story about how priority mail was way behind. so, i waited. still nothing.

since, i have attempted to contact the rep several times with no response. sadly, i was referred to this source by one of the heavy weights on this site. im sure he wont be pleased to hear about couture labs scams.

fullcontact:Anything yet??? I know priority mail is running slow, as I sent someone funds a week ago and they still haven’t arrived. =(

giving you all a heads up.

Hey, far be it from me to criticize you guys, but why the hell do you all insist posting a lab name on THIS board? It just blows me away with the lack of discretion used here. Why don�??t you just call the DEA and tell them you got fucked. Why can�??t you at least PM the shit and keep it out of the open.

It�??s a wonder anybody wants to be in the sourcing game, un-fucking believable. You guys need to think things all the way through before posting on a non-sourcing board. Just my opinion�?�.

Were you one of the newbies that fell for the “couture lab rep” douche bag scam? I’m not a big poster on any site’s but that cum stain screamed to me scammer.

A little FYI for the new guys, if you’ve heard of a great source, and they have a “lab rep” on a non source board. Run, run far away.

Dont use gear99 either theyre scammers !

Why post sources ?

Coz we want to let everyone know about these fucking wankers thats why !

We cant pm everybody can we ? So thats why !"

Fuck em is what i say , there should be somwhere we can name and shame these fucking skanking pricks !

All I know is that this is obviously an illegal and risky business, so if one shipment goes bad or takes to long or there is a mix up, then thats just how it is.

One person jumping to conclusions all over a public forum is just going to escalate the situation and almost will guarantee scaring off the source from this board. Handle your shit in private as to not fuck over everyone else.

Good point.

From what I hear, the man in question is trying to get everything straightened out. I don’t speak for him so don’t bother asking why emails haven’t been responded to etc… This is just what I heard.

I’ve no doubt the guy has emailed them just like the rest of us we want our shit or our money back so we’re gonna get in touch with em arent we ?

End of the day theyve had the cash and thats it , they dont give a flying fuck.

How can posting stuff escalate situations ?

More like inform people of their situation and that gives a prospective buyer a chance to see who and what they would be dealing with.

Name and shame is what i say !

If you’ve had a problem with a source let everyone know then we can make up our own minds about that company and wether to take on the risk of dealing with em.

Hey dont sweat it i got fucked by STEROID-SHOP.NET( Fuck you all who are going to say shit like dont name names newbie, cause i dont give a shit about keyboard warriors)

If i can only get a source from some where in Alberta or BC i’d be set, but i spent my life fighting clean, but now want some gear, and theres to much bull shit behind it

first, im not naming sources. im naming scammers. thats cute how the two that defended him, dean and diana are associated with him. finally, i dont think i jumped the gun on busting his balls. even if there was a legit problem, wouldnt the person respond to numerous pm’s.

the apparent problem was the the post office was running slow. the package was already sent but i guess it just got lost in the mail…right.

I’ve got nothing to do with your problems you dipshit. I was passing on what I heard as favor to YOU.

SOP for most boards is that the customer needs some proof that they have been scammed.

An email trail is most always required before anyone will believe anything.

The problem with this board is that there are no measures in place to prevent lying pieces of shit from posting their lies in the open forum unchecked.

I am not accusing anyone of this in this thread - but Tin Can has been allowed to call me scammer when I have emails, and PM’s to prove he is a lying piece of shit.

I am not defending any sources. I just think there needs to be some sort of safeguard against impatient customers crying scammer at their earliest convenience.

And just fyi for anyone that is following the episode with Tin Can. I just received my order from chem one in 5 business days to Canada. They have just made another happy satisfied customer.

Here in the states my order from Chemone arrived in four business days, and the before and after b/w proved it was dosed as advertised. I agree with the earlier post regarding the lack of “filtering” on the posts on these boards as I have made that point before, and probably will continue to until the Mods take a different stance on some things…

I am glad everyone is receiving Chemone orders but is anyone recieving orders from FullContact. After all, that is the reason this thread was started. His emails bounce back with error message that his account is over quota or Inbox full as of a few days ago

rj,
the difference is this. had i purchased from chem one. id recieve my shit on time. if i wasnt going to be recieving it for whatever reason, i would be contacted by someone at chemone. and if i sent an email asking where my shit was, i know for sure id get an immediate response back.

having troubles with suppliers, powders or whatever is one thing. but when a source doesnt return any emails or pm’s. then you know there is a problem

Whats cute is the fact that your stupid or careless enough to get “scammed” in the first place. Im wandering if you picked up the source name and thought, “sounds good, lets order 6 bills worth with a single email correspondence and see what happens”. I believe even legit labs will scam from time to time if the person putting the order through seems like the type of idiot who will be easy to scam. Alot of people may flame me because they have been scammed and feel bad for you, but thats stupid on their part knowing the nature of the biz. Establishing new sources, you should never order more than a couple bills at most, to check the legitimacy of the source. Losing money in that way is just part of the game. By the way the reason i’m associated with him is because It has worked as a legit source for me, but its probobly just a conspiracy, not the fact that your a tool.

Also your profile says your 165lbs, maybe this is just gods way of telling you to learn to lift some weights and eat before you start running cycles…

In case that kid is wondering why he never got his gear, I’ve got his answer:

They’re all in prison. Still feel sorry for yourself?

I sure hope that isn’t the case with CL. He was as good as they come.

I still remember the night I read his list and saw Testapoise. I nutted twice that night.
