Predator web shop in May 2020

Predator-RC signs emails with “We are ONE and ONLY”. And indeed, he probably is the most entertaining vendor originating from the Polish scene. The Polish scene used to operate from Poland until summer/autumn 2018, when the Polish government made most Research Chemicals illegal and many shops had to relocate and moved to the Netherlands.

By the way, in Poland, the government does not combat Research Chemicals, Legal Highs, or New Psychoactive Substances, no, in Poland they colloquially use the term “dopalacze” which would literally translate “afterburners“.

Predator nevertheless ships worldwide, also to Poland. For a while, he even tried to partly operate (produce and sell) from there but that finally became too risky, after the Polish government started imprisoning RC Vendors who tried likewise.

So, Polish customers are receiving their orders from the Netherlands now. They would use a fake name and have their order shipped to a parcel station, where you could pick up mail by simply entering a code without having to show your id. Clever.

The Predator web shop is still in Polish, prices are still low (~ 6 USD per gram of standard products), the only thing that has changed is that negative comments are being deleted from the web shop now. So, like with 99,9% of RC vendors, the reviews on Predator’s website have become useless as well. Sad story.


The entertainer and his daily promotion deals

To make ordering more tempting, Predator offers special deals throughout the week: On Mondays, you get some 3-CMC for free, on Tuesdays and Thursdays you may ask for free products worth your shipping costs, on Wednesdays you may ask for free 4-CMC, and Friday to Sunday there is a surprise weekend special. Alternatively, you can always ask for free 3-MMC pellets if you pay via Bitcoin.

Let’s have a closer look at one of these weekend specials

The entertainer and his hide & seek

Predator is known for sometimes to not processing orders. If they have less than ten products in stock, they might be on holiday. This is important to know, because they wouldn’t tell you or close the store. They just disappear and keep the web shop open, and after weeks or even months they would return, not even say sorry for delayed orders and, this is important, their comeback would always go along with many new products. I think this is 50% laziness, 50% marketing strategy. Customers would order this new products like mad, especially since they had been waiting for so long.

To let the world know, that the shop is not gone for good, they constantly keep in touch with their customers on the dopek.info forum while they are on holiday. If this was a pure marketing strategy, I’d call it cynical, but I don’t know.

I did not get in touch with the shop before writing this text, since they would answer my emails but only provide answers to questions I had not asked for… They will of course get to see the article and may ask for corrections or additions, but something tells me, they don’t really care.


The Polish Scene

The Polish Scene means more than just being a shop that used to operate from Poland. They have like their own products, which would often be not as pure as with e.g. Dutch vendors and often times have an unpleasant smell or would be extremely caustic and cause you tears running down your cheeks after ingestion. Also, Polish customers tend to smoke the products, “konkret vapo?” used to be the most often asked product information on their web shop.

They do their own thing, produce in Slovakia and other Eastern European countries, they would provide multiple different batches of the same chemical which all would be different in color, smell and effects, …they seem to be different.

However, besides from their products, they aren’t. The Polish NPS scene evolved early and soon became very popular, similar to the situation in the United Kingdom (Great Britain and Ireland). They used the same marketing tools, would e.g. present lab tests to insinuate these “Legal Highs” would not be dangerous but “safe alternatives” to hard drugs, which of course is not true.

It started with occasional sales via online forums, before rich business men brought the scene to the next level: They worked out marketing strategies and installed professionally looking forums like dopalacze.com, that would advertise only shops that were franchise takers of the forum owners. If you had a couple of thousand USD, you could buy a license, open a shop and start selling.

And the chemicals sold well. A study from 2010 showed that almost every tenth student would have done NPS at least on a monthly basis. Already in 2008, the first “smart shop” openly selling synthetic designer drugs opened and that thing became a mass phenomenon, it moved from online-only to the “real-life” at remarkable speed: By the end of 2008, 40 so-called “smart shops” openly selling designer drugs were operational in Poland, a country with close to 40 million citizens. The range of drugs was expanding too, smoking blends mixed with synthetic Cannabinoids like JWH-18 appeared, Mephedrone (4-MMC) became a bestseller, and by the end of 2010 there were already a 1,3000 “smart shops” up and running all over the country.

The owners of the forum dopalacze.com, who used their money to source or produce the synthetic drugs which their franchise takers would sell for them, would contact the press to announce the opening of new shops, just like any other business would do. And the press surprisingly loved them, so that in 2010 90 (!) percent of young people aged 18-19 would have heard of NPS already.

In 2011, “smart shops” were made illegal and the sellers returned to their web shops, police counted 43 of them those days. Since 2013, numbers of consumers and of awareness of these drugs are declining. Not just because smart shops were banned, but also because good selling drugs were scheduled, and last, not least, ordering online seems to attract less customers than just buying drugs at a shop nearby.

With the rise of synthetic designer drugs, also mental disorders occurred more frequently and no one knows about the long-term effects of Research Chemicals. The number of NPS-related poisonings went down from a record high in 2010, but interestingly began to constantly rise again.*

RC SCENE – Safe NOT Scam

Polish Scene Product Quality

As of today, in 2020, I am aware of two Polish forums that are not competitors but rather rivals: dopek.info and dopalamy.com, both advertising Research Chemical Shops. I wouldn’t know how they work, if they are still run as franchises or if the bigger shops source and produce drugs for the others; if they ran labs of their own or if they rather imported from Eastern Europe (like Slovakia) or from Asia.

dopek.info seems to be doing a lot better but some of the advertised shops there not only provide the poor quality the Polish scene is sometimes known for but also act mysteriously: They e.g. insist on self-destroying messages instead of emails, or would sell both Research Chemicals and things like prepaid-cards for mobile phones, for anonymous registration with online accounts and for anonymous communication of course.

Don’t get me wrong, the batches in this scene vary so heavily, sometimes you will be lucky and receive top quality. But they also sell chems that would often contain lots of probably toxic synth residues, the bad smell and the burning are usually not part of the substance you ordered, these are impurities.

Tipp: Their prices seem tempting and they all ship more or less reliable (you might sometimes receive replacement products you had not ordered because many of them don’t keep their web shops up to date.) Still, in case you smoke such a tainted product, and your throat or lungs hurt, better stop and get rid of it. It’s not worth intoxicating oneself, life is already too short anyway. I am not saying that all products were of questionable quality, but if you should receive such, please let it be.


Predator Product Quality

Back to Predator. Besides from selling neurotoxic chemicals like Chloro-substituted Cathinones (e.g. 3-CMC, 4-CMC), their products as of May 2020 look good, have no weird smell and seem of good quality.

3-CMC gave me an instant headache, I won’t touch that one again, and one out of the three variants of Hexen they sent, felt like swallowing a razor blade: Hexen White Powder feels way too caustic, I won’t open that bag again. Oh, and I don’t like their 3-FPM either. The latter is a question of taste, I assume, others might like it. The headache and the sore throat aren’t, though.

Their new batch of 4F-MPH is unspectacular, but clean and more than okay especially given the price. Their A-PiHP is the best A-PiHP I have ever tested, their MDPHP Powder is good, their new HEX-EN Crystal is way better than their last Hexen, DCK is good, but too mild; their 3-MMC looks better than it works, but is okay, as well. Their 2-FDCK, however, didn’t have any effects one me.

Predator recently asked for translators and for places where he could advertise. With the new products I could imagine him to expand his business.

Conclusion

If you think your go-to vendor is out of his mind with his constantly rising prices and if you want to try something different from what Dutch shops usually offer, then I’d say Predator-RC is a good option.

Maybe make a small order and try different products, you will soon find out if you rather tend towards uppers or other substances.


Please don’t forget to mention the daily promotion deal in the comment field during checkout. If you forget, you will not receive any products for free.

    1. Thank you for the link. Would you please do me a favor and report those scammers to https://scam.directory? THX!

      I used to warn against scammers for almost three years, many of those scam websites we could legally erase from the web, and take their place so they could never come back and hurt anybody. That was too much for me, and had never been the plan.

      I still answer your questions, no matter what, so, please be so kind to report that scam website to https://scam.directory.

      Don’t be happy that you know, think of your brothers and sisters who might not know yet. Solidarity is a key value here. If I over and over fail again asking you to warn others, I will say fuck you soon.

      scam.directory are working with governments, Interpol, FBI, etc. and they find themselves super for erasing thousands of scam websites every few month. Once a year, they even celebrate raids. I can’t go into detail, but whatever they do is stupid and pointless and will never change a thing. What I did did bring change. I can’t do it anymore, too strenious.

      Still, scam.directory are in my private contacts in the phone book and they will delete those sites – if you only report those.

      That’s a lot better than nothing.

      That LE is show, you might have known already. They still do something about scammers, maybe my expectations and own standards are impossible to live. They cooperate with several LE agencies, they are scientists in the field of cybercrime and they delete like 30,000 scam websites every year. About a thousand more lead to arrests even.

      Please: https://scam.directory && https://trustpilot.com

      I can’t do this. I can’t move more fingers than I already do.

      Thank you & Have a happy day!

    1. Should be running. If not, send him an email, please. Pr21…

      Since their management changed again (it seems like it) they source certain products from TRC now, I assume. Prices have risen, unfortunately.

      He recently added the nicely done Flubrotizolam pellets to his stock, these are good!

  1. I ordered from predator but the money was stuck, i paid the full ammount!!!!!!!! This was months ago and i have sent tons of email but no response. I had great quality before from this shop and would love to again.

    1. NO! ;-D

      He is working on a new template/script-set and until that one is ready, neither the clearnet-site nor den DN-backup seem to work correctly. Also. he is a bit concerned about (recent) happenings in his homebase. A concern that leads to shipping sometimes old stuff of poor quality (not that poor as used from Alex TRC / RTC and his Dutch mafia friends) although he has already new products photographed and ready.

      A-PHP Deluxe + 5-MAMP are good choices.

      You could use predation. info and send him an email where/how to pay to for your order.

      You could check chem-casino, that is not 100% them but should become the improved website in exchange for having shifted almost every product over to there.

      I understand that he does not desperately want call me on the phone, but I gave other options (e.g. Threema.ch) – if he doesn’t want to call, I will not run after him,

      1. Three months in transit may kill certain products.

        Then again, for the Realchems samples, we had to wait 11 weeks because of the sudden COVID breakout. All products arrived in perfect quality.

        I sent you a pic of an A-PiHP sample. If you find time to, please let me know if it looks like your chlorine tabs or is a different thing. Thank you.

        Also, I noticed that he offers different products depending on the URI you use to access the shop. That the product photos do not look like the actual product is a stupid habit that TRC started. Predator’s photos always used to be accurate, now they seem to show products that are probably in stock but will not be shipped before the old stuff is gone? Boy…

        PS: Anyone who might have received a slightly wet product with a sour smell: Trash it. That sour smell is bacteria that grew after the product somehow got wet. You cannot dry it, the bacteria remain on the compound unless you heat it up to 100°C / 220°F.
