Tips for Aussies on personal safety if sourcing overseas
DISCLAIMER: This information was written for education on personal privacy & safety and harm minimization purposes only. This is not a how-to-guide. I am not, in any way, promoting, condoning, or encouraging the activity of ordering anabolic steroids online. Individuals who do so, must be aware that it is at their own risk, and I am not responsible for anything that happens to you in the event that something goes wrong.
This is a risky game, especially during these times, but you have to play it smart if you want to succeed in receiving your order intact, and not receiving the dreaded “Letter” or early morning knock on the door.
Most of these tips are common sense, but since a lot of people Down Under have been receiving seizures and raids instead of their steroids order, obviously they have not been USING their common sense.
** RULE NUMBER 1: Make sure there is NO connection between yourself and the order.
You NEVER order to a real person’s name (unless you’re not their friend or wish to use them as a scapegoat, lol), and DON’T use your own name and address together.
Don’t use your real name with a different address either.
Either yourself or your mate whose name you used will be getting the rap if you do this.
No credit card transactions, no paper or electronic trail whatsoever should link back to you. Even Western Union logs their transactions on a central database. So it really helps if you can get a fake ID. There are plenty of fake ID resources on the internet, so look it up! You can buy flawless professional ones from certain sources, or you can even make your own with a colour printer and laminator.
Order to a false name, to a preferably clean address with no seizures. Rotate addresses around whenever necessary, if using your own and other friends’ addresses.
The ideal scenario would be if you had fake ID and knew a house or unit letterbox that was definitely going to be vacant during the delivery time frame, that you could use as a dropbox.
It is preferable to go for mail options that are trackable but do not require a signature, e.g. EMS. That way you don’t have to worry about showing ID to pick it up - it just turns up in the letterbox.
If you chose a delivery option that requires a signature - if somebody is home when the postman arrives, it doesn’t matter who signs for it. It’s not an admission of guilt, it just shows that somebody has received the item to that address. They can still deny everything as long as their real name was not used. One thing that can be done is to leave the envelope/package unopened for a while and write ‘return to sender’ on it, so that it looks like it was a mistaken delivery or that you do not claim this as yours.
If nobody is home, and they leave a delivery slip in the letterbox, you will have to nominate someone who has to show ID to pick it up from the post office. That’s where fake ID comes in. If you don’t have one, then you can risk your own ass or a friend’s ass - but if it looks all clear and has arrived without delay, it may be safe to do so.
** RULE NUMBER 2: Only order as much as you need for yourself, for one cycle.
In general, most users only need to do about 2 cycles per year, so this way you are only risking your ass twice a year, for small amounts that won’t land you in jail unless you’ve been caught multiple times. It’s better doing small orders than doing a huge order for a supply enough to last 2-3 years, then getting busted for the whole lot and doing 5 years jail time.
If putting in with a friend, do not make one large order for both of you. Split up transactions, packages and mailing times.
Greed has been the downfall of every juicer ordering gear to Oz. The more you order, the more conspicuous it becomes, and the more you will get hammered for it if you get caught! Ordering a tiny amount may get you nothing beyong a seizure letter. Ordering a significant personal use amount may get you a fine or smaller prosecution. Ordering large amounts shows intent to distribute, which can buy you 5 years jail time.
Take nibbles and small bites, not huge chomps at the gear available from overseas sources. That shows you are a small fish, and therefore may slip through their net, not really worthwhile of their time. It’s the sharks and big fish that they are really after in most cases. I’m not saying that they won’t round up the little fish, but it’s better to have a smaller profile on the radar than a large one.
** RULE NUMBER 3: Work with your source to make your envelope/package look innocuous, inconspicuous and unsuspicious. Choose a product that is packaged in as stealthy a way as possible.
Ampoules look like bullets under X-Ray. Vials and tablets are equally as obvious. Sachets sometimes slip through. Paper is the only thing that looks like, ahem, paper under X-Ray.
** If seizure occurs - If it’s to your friend’s address, make sure he/she is not a snitch type of person. Make sure they never mentions any connection to bodybuilding or friends who lift weights - they have to act totally clueless and innocent. If they are kinda built themselves, the cops or customs agents will try to be smartasses and say, “you look pretty big mate - you sure you’re not into doing steroids?”, but he can just say he’s against it and totally natural. They can even put on an act and feign moral outrage against AAS and the fact that somebody tried to order illegal drugs to his address. That should make it more convincing. Customs agents and cops can be very tricky at asking questions, and get people to confess without realizing it, or get them to say inconsistent things in their stories, so it’s best to rehearse a totally watertight alibi with your friend. Just in case. if it’s to your own place, make sure you do the same kinds of things as above.
** RULE NUMBER 4: Keep it very quiet! Don’t go running your mouth off open slather at the gym, or in forum threads all over the net, if you receive your orders. It is a matter of trust and discretion as to what you give away, and to whom.
That’s all the tips for now. If I have forgotten or left out anything important, I’ll add it in later.
