    Axis Labs Charged with Mail Fraud

    Colorado firm accused of mail-order steroid sales
    Denver Business Journal
    Date: Thursday, September 8

    Federal authorities have charged Axis Labs LLC of Centennial with a criminal count of mail fraud on allegations it illegally sold mail-order supplements containing anabolic steroids.

    Prosecutors in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for Colorado charged Axis Labs on Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Denver.

    Axis Labs is accused of “being involved” in the making and selling a muscle-building and weight-loss product called Monster Caps, which the company purported was a dietary supplement that didn’t need to be prescribed by a doctor.

    Monster Caps actually contained undeclared synthetic anabolic steroids and were intended “to affect the structure and function of the human body,” which made the product a regulated drug needing Food & Drug Administration approval to be sold, investigators alleged.

    “It is critically important that consumers know the contents of what they are consuming,” said John Walsh, U.S. Attorney for Colorado, in a press release. “In this case, the product contained synthetic anabolic steroids, and because of its potential for harm, it was a prescription drug that could only be dispensed pursuant to a valid prescription.”

    An investigation involving the U.S. Food and Drug Administration found Axis Labs mailed Monster Caps throughout the United States in 2008 and 2009 to customers ordering them over the Internet, authorities allege.

    Axis Labs faces a fine of up to $500,000 if convicted on the mail fraud count.

    Axis Labs did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.

    I just want to clarify...they are not being charged with selling "anabolic steroids" or "prohormones", they're being charged with mail fraud because apparently this product had a few prohormones in it but they did not list them on the ingredients.

    So how is that mail fraud again? Shouldn't that be mislabeling or adulterated labels not mail fraud?

    Remember gov going after AL Capone with tax evasion? Same thing here. They wanted to bust Axis and this is all they could come up with.

    This is why I have never got in gear thru the mail. I am so paranoid. Lol, not to mention my fuckin job would shit can me if I got caught. I have googled every company on the banners we have on our forums. Everyone says, theyre a fraud, dont do it. Fuck man, I dont use much, I am prescribed some. Occassionally I may run some deca or eq with mine. Fuck, who do we trust now. Governments crackin dow everyone i have talked to seems cool and has been honest with me to this point. Its irritating.

    Well well Uncle Sam - thanks for focusing on Axis Labs instead of terrorism. Because Axis Labs is definately a bigger threat to our lives than fanatical suicide bombers and other terrorists. Effing dorks. How much, time, money and manpower did this ever-so-important of a bust require?? What a pathetic waste of resources. 100% embarrassing.

    “to affect the structure and function of the human body,”

    This government will not ban McD/Burger K.

    Consume those quarter pounders for a month and see how those alter the structure and function of human body!
