PARIS (Reuters) - French police have broken up a Marseille-based international doping ring thought to be the biggest in Europe, the government said on Saturday.

The group sold anabolic steroids over the Internet in Europe and the United States, counting nearly 10,000 customers in France alone, the French Sports Ministry said.

A judicial source said the group had nearly 200,000 clients in Europe for its steroids, which are used for developing muscle bulk.

Three people from the southern French city of Marseille have been put under judicial investigation for their part in the ring, which obtained the drugs from labs in Cyprus, China and Turkey, the source said.

Large sums of money were discovered at the homes of two of the men and investigators believe that the operation was making 1,000 euros (849 pounds) a day in Marseille alone.

An international police sweep was carried out against the ring on December 7 and investigators have also uncovered money laundering operations in Germany and the Netherlands.

I don't know, but it won't be good for lots of bros I'm sure. Unless LE stays with the sources and doesn't go after the users as well.

they wont go after the users - they never have yet - they may be interested in the importers though and remailers - but it wont go any lower than that - at the worse they would flag your shipping address - so its best to get a new one for your future orders from other suppliers

its not that easy for something like this to go international so unless your a major remailer I wouldnt worry about it

Even better question is when is GenXXL going to address this issue on the boards they own and brought back up? They haven't said shit yet on CS or CM, haven't really checked around all their boards but they are sort of admitting they had an issue in Cypress but don't really know what happened there. They moved their servers for security but haven't mentioned if they were compromised.

Too many questions for me unanswered that they should at least have a few answers to. Don't leave the members of your boards hanging and open to any issues.

It is now being reported that French police, working with German authorities, have busted an international steroid ring operating out of Marseille, France. The now-busted steroid dealers were working in connection with branches in Cyprus, Turkey, and China. These recent arrests have come as part of a worldwide operation carried out on December 7th. Clearly this is GenXXL/Axio Labs – and there’s zero room for discussion on the matter, although the article doesn’t mention the lab or company by name.

France was considered “safe” by many GenXXL/Axio customers in the United States, as it is not one of the countries (mailing addresses) we perceive as overly scrutinized by the postal service. It was a perfect country to mail steroids to Canada from, due to the large percentage of French Canadians.

If you happened to listen to Superhuman Radio last Thursday at 10 AM, you would have heard me talk about the rumor that the Axio Labs/ GenXXL busts that we’re seeing are related to money laundering; this was the first time that rumor had been put into the public circulation, but as you can see from the article below, it has now been confirmed.

This is going to spell bad news for many European sources and North American remailers, all of whom used Bank Wire’s to pay for Axio’s products.
