Default Have you ever been ripped off???

Have you ever been ripped off by a poor bodybuilding supplement that was overpriced and pure junk?

I have. Back in 1986 I paid nearly $200 for a line of supplements in the back of a magazine that were supposedly "steroid-like." They did absolutely nothing for me. What can I say...I was 18 at the time.

Back in the day there were mail order steroids in the back of mags. I was always tempted, but afraid of getting ripped off....

Good point. Not much changes. I have an old issue of Muscle Mag and there are a ton of steroid ads.

I HATE dealing with stressful issues on the phone. We get phone calls weekly from a collection agency trying to collect from a women that does not live at our house. We switched phone numbers several years ago, and she must have had the # before us.

Anywho, if I were face to face with them i would probably have done something silly by now.
