This domain has a history of abuse. While being transferred to Namesilo only this year and in under the proxy protection, this domain has a history of fake registration details linked to a well known Cameroonian drug scammer. We have recorded these details here:
Since this is a scam in as far as the claimed substances sold does not exist, also commonly targeting cancer sufferers, this website and malicious domain has been reported many times before.
We also see it changing hosts after the hosting providers investigated and terminated the hosting (in what is known as host-hopping).

High Risk of Extortion
The drug scam is also used in extortion attempts due to the victim attempting to buy illegal drugs or attempting to buy more than an allowed quantity of and item such as cannabis. The marketing done by scammers deliberately tru and create an entrapment situation. The scammer will then use this as an opportunity to extract more money from the victim or use this as an opportunity to get the victim to fulfill certain tasks for him (money mule, reshipping).
The domain fastweedonline.com should be considered high risk for such an attempt. Another domain controlled by this party is currently being abused for exactly such purposes. If you encounter such issues, do not yield to the scammer’s demand, rather report it to your local law enforcement agency immediately or seek advice from an attorney. Artists Against 419 will assist them with background information already known.
