Boston woman charged in steroid ring case

BOSTON — The Gloucester woman charged with running a Beverly tanning salon that served as a front for an illegal steroids ring was formally charged Thursday in U.S. District Court.

Melissa Sclafani, 29, of 19 Beacon St., was charged with conspiracy to distribute counterfeit steroids and conspiracy to launder money. She and five others had been issued federal criminal complaints on April 12.

Federal court documents allege that, between approximately February 2016 and April 12 of this year, Sclafani conspired with others to manufacture steroid products, market them as “Onyx” steroids, and sell them to customers across the U.S. via email and social media platforms. Customers paid for the steroids via such remitters as Western Union and MoneyGram, and members of the conspiracy used false identifications and multiple remitter locations to pick up the steroid proceeds, prosecutors charge.

According to prosecutors, the conspirators purchased the raw materials to manufacture the steroids, as well as Onyx labeling and packaging from overseas suppliers. Onyx is a legitimate pharmaceutical company owned by Amgen Inc. that does not manufacture steroids, the U.S. Attorney's office said.

Prosecutors say Sclafani served as corporate secretary of Wicked Tan LLC of Beverly. The business was run by Sclafani and alleged co-conspirators Philip Goodwin, 36, of Lynn and Tyler Bauman, 32, of Shrewsbury.

The federal conspiracy charge can bring a sentence of up to five years in prison, three years of supervised release, and a fine of up to $250,000 — or twice the gain or loss of the conspiracy, according to the U.S. Attorney's office.

The charge of money laundering conspiracy allows for as much as 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $500,000 — or, again, twice the gain or loss of the conspiracy.

Federal prosecutors did not indicate a date for Sclafani's next court appearance.
