Two men who were part of the well known growth hormone source "HGH Power," lost their appeals in Zhongshan Intermediate Court in China. Their charges stem from being busted for illegally selling human growth hormone overseas, mostly in the United States, using repackaged labels.

HGH Power Busted
Obviously, it is against the law to manufacture fake labels, or packaging, for the sale of unlicensed drugs. Furthermore, it is also illegal to manufacture counterfeit drugs. These laws are based on China Drug Administration (DA) Law.
What they did
Huang and Liang (identified only by their surnames), admitted that they bought the human growth hormone vials from a local drug manufacturer for cheap – they did not know if it was IGF-1 or HGH for sure (not testing was done), and then repackaged them using English language labels, boxes, etc. These boxes would be shipped to customers in the USA, who wanted HGH, using western union for payment processing. Logically, they were charging significantly more then what they paid for it. Interestingly, Huang and Liang had been doing this for the past 4 years, had profited millions of yuan in the process, and had built a clientele with the help of marketing on steroid websites, where they called their brand "HGH Power."
Steroid forum chatter
Apparently, their scheme went south when users of their products started testing them out, and realizing that they were getting selectively scammed. Selective scamming is the act of initially sending out real products, roping in customers, and sending out underdosed or fake product when the customer buys again. With human growth hormone, a popular scam would be to start sending people HCG instead, since they both look similar, and it would be impossible to tell the difference without using the product and testing it by yourself - essentially being your own guinea pig.
However, veteran members and moderators of Evolutionary.org were the first to notice that their human growth hormone was a fake product, and these assumptions were based on blood work testing. What's more, it was reported on the website in early 2015 that fake HGH was being sold, which was months before Huang and Liang were caught. Interestingly, at the time “HGH power” tried to cover up the findings, while offering to re-send more products. Ultimately, this led to Chinese authorities arresting Liang for selling counterfeit product, and then the arrest of the operation's ring leader Huang.
Fines and sentence
Huang was given the maximum of 10 years in jail, and fined a hefty 12 million Yuan, which converts to a bit under 2 million American dollars. His partner in crime Liang was hit with a 16 month jail sentence, and a 100,000 yuan fine. They had both attempted to appeal their convictions, claiming that the HGH they were selling were real and not fake. Nonetheless, the judge was not buying what they were trying to sell to the court.
It is still unclear if Chinese authorities will turn over customer records to American officials. In most of these situations, law enforcement is only concerned with the dealers, and not the customers, but it is very plausible that addresses could be flagged in the future. Customers who have used HGH Power in the past, should not use the same address in the future if they order PED's again.
