Springfield Drugs & Supplies runs a scam claiming to be a legitimate company supplying lots of prescription medications and legal & not so legal chemicals worldwide. They were one of the few companies that claimed to have a location in the US. Most of these companies ship from the Ukraine, China, or India. I guess I felt a lot more comfortable dealing with someone in the US because I thought there would less issues involved with shipping & delivery (i.e. no customs, less time in getting to me, & less cost in shipping fees) and I would be more likely to receive what I ordered without it being confiscated along the way. After establishing contact via email, I was contacted the next day by a person who called himself "Denis". He laid out what the prices were for various quantities in powder form & brand name vials, and gave instructions on how to proceed. I'll copy & paste the emails here so anyone looking at this will be able to compare if they see very similar correspondence:

So, I called this guy & spoke to him. I was told that I'd receive the tracking information right after the Moneygram was scanned & emailed back to him. I can't say I felt very confident that I was dealing with a legitimate source, but I felt good enough about it to take a chance & risk $300. And, I'm not saying that what I did was smart (or legal), but I don't think anybody deserves to be robbed & believe it or not I am currently receiving ketamine injections from my psychiatrist as they've recently found that it works wonders for depression. However, these sessions are very expensive & I couldn't afford to keep paying $250 per week to be injected intramuscularly with a medication I could get vials of for less than $10 and would provide about 6 sessions if I administered it myself.
Well, I paid for the Moneygram and emailed a scan of it to this individual. I expected to receive an email back within 15 minutes with tracking information & was told it would be delivered by an EMS Courier so that eased my mind about the package getting to me safely. I immediately felt something was wrong because I didn't hear back from Denis after multiple emails, calls & texts. I finally did hear back from him the next morning and was still concerned because I was told that delivery would take place the next day. He told me he'd get back to me ASAP with the information. The fact that he continued to keep in contact made me think that this might actually happen. if his intent was to scam me, why would he even bother to respond anymore? Well, I found out why;) After two days of waiting, repeated calls & texts & lots of excuses I was told that in order for my package to be delivered they needed me to pay $565 of "refundable insurance".
Now, I was not going to send any more money & this "insurance" was never mentioned until days later. Why they would need $565 to insure a package worth less than $300 makes no logical sense & it was then I realized that I wasn't going to receive anything;) Emails were sent discussing the insurance & sent from an email address that was obviously not official & the link provided lead me to website for printer ink. More emails were sent trying to convince me that this courier was legitimate including one with a invoice for the insurance with a fake EMS Courier stamp that said "David Wright Exp. & Logistic Director". I googled this man's name & there was no such person who worked for EMS Courier Service (like I had any doubts;).
After expressing that I thought I was being scammed to Denis (who also happened to answer the phone number for the courier service:), he texted me that he felt "hurt". Well, I felt "robbed":) Denis emailed me another attachment which was supposed to be some kind of warranty card for the "insurance" promising that I'd receive a refund on the insurance after successful delivery. This attachment didn't do anything more to convince me that I should gift Denis with more money & I looked up the address on the form which was supposed to be where this business was located. It was the address for a dance studio. I kept getting more calls & texts asking me to send this additional money & I was tired of wasting my time at this point.
I gave Denis the ultimatum that either he could pay me back the money I sent him to my PayPal account within 24 hours (and even gave him another day after that) or I would place complaints all over the internet making sure nobody else would fall for his scam. Every time anyone googled their website, company or any of the names, phone numbers, & other details used they'd see this Ripoff Report typically as the second or third search result & I'd save others from being scammed & make sure him & his partners in crime wouldn't get away with this nonsense anymore. So, here it is. Don't be fooled yourself. And, just don't even try to attempt to do what I did. Very few sources are legitimate & they all want to be paid via bank wire with either Moneygram or Western Union.
