First things first: Happy New Year! Better late than never 😉
You know that I keep an eye on the amazing story of Rob King, the owner of EphedrineForSale dot com: gosh, this guy was a star some years ago when his website was on top of Google for any search for ephedrine! He was known by most bodybuilders here and not only because he was shipping Kaizen ephedrine HCL from Canada to the USA 😉 Look at him on this picture, surrounded by cute female bodybuilders… Did you recognize this nice woman grabbing him? Yes, Jamie Eason herself 🙂 If not, have a look at the video at the end of this post.
New TV episode
His online business stopped in 2012 when the DEA asked the RMCP to visit his house one morning… The Canadian news network CBC has broadcasted several videos about this case, you can find them in a previous post.
I went back to it recently and I wondered if Rob King had already been charged by the court. After a quick search I discovered a new episode which has been released by CBC a few months ago, and to my surprise it was not about ephedrine but totally focused on a tax issue: apparently Rob King didn’t tell everything to the tax administration!
In fact during their “Project Barbwire” the RCMP have seized many documents that draw the attention of their tax colleagues. Plus something that didn’t help Rob King: he said during the interview that he was making 2 million dollars a year! The kind of good information you want to share on TV when you don’t pay your taxes 😉
Here is the link to this new video:
Are They Putting Their Profit Before Our Health?
OK, seriously now: what does it tell us? Well, for me the most important point here is that as always it all comes down to money 🙁
Don’t get me wrong: Rob King is surely not clear on all points from a moral point of view but looking again at the videos I have the feeling that he is kind of naive, if you see what I mean. He is probably paying a high price for many others.
In other words: I don’t care for him (sorry) but I care for ephedrine. I was expecting interesting discussions about the controversy of ephedrine, the most powerful fat burner invented by Nature, how lobbies had deprived millions of people of its proven weight loss effects, despite the support of the medical community and despite the total cost of obesity in our western countries. And what happens finally? Same story, again and again: the good questions are not raised and it’s all about money! Come on! All this story is slowly but surely turning into a tax issue 🙁 Seriously…
Well, I’m not really surprised, just disappointed. Apparently when officials and administrations deal with ephedrine, in the USA and in Canada as well, Our Health is important but apparently Their Money is more important 😉
Any Site Shipping Ephedrine From Canada To The USA?
I did a quick check to be sure: all Canadian supplement shops took the lesson learned from EphedrineForSale and from NiceAndNatural — do you remember this old man and his daughter shipping 3 million tablets of ephedrine to international customers, but mainly to the U.S.? They must have been judged by now, I will have a look, I hope for them that they have paid their taxes 😉 It’s funny to think that both have been caught because of their garbage bags, right in front of their homes 😉 The less funny thing is that now you can’t find a single site shipping ephedrine from Canada to the U.S. 🙁
At least to my knowledge. If you know more, just let me know 😉
Good Point For GorillaJack
A site that has been quite lucky (until now) is Gorilla Jack!
Seriously, considering all the pills they’ve been shipping during years, the only explanation that comes to my mind is that they have a different way to handle their garbage bags 😉
I have mentioned in a previous post that their shipping policy was a bit fallacious. Take for instance their page selling Kaizen Ephedrine HCL, you have several links on the right: Canada (of course), USA and International. If you click USA as most of us would do, good luck with the explanation… If you click International, they tell you that “INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING IS AVAILABLE TO THE FOLLOWING COUNTRIES: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom”.
Good news for you if you live in one of these countries? Not really. The most important point is below: “Cannot be exported outside of Canada & PayPal can’t be used to pay for this item”. Bad luck! This sentence should be bigger and at the top of the page but at least if you read carefully you know what to expect before ordering…
My Preferred One: Buyephedrinecanada
I’m just kidding but I can’t help it: this site that made me laugh a lot: buyephedrinecanada. The contact email is still email@example.com, can you believe that?!
With this comment in the About us page: “We love to talk! We’re not afraid to talk to you.” Well, they’re not afraid but honestly I can’t say the same 😉 And the site always has this wonderful design with these lovely banners:
Boy, you must be truly desperate to buy from them 😉
