It seems if you trust the name “Dank” for even one second, everybody has it in for you. First off, Dank is a fake brand. Second, a rash of tainted THC cartridges has led to many hospitalizations for lung damage and at least five deaths and counting. Dank cartridges are among the ones confirmed to be tainted. And now, from the people who brought you so much misery already comes…

Fake online stores pushing fake carts

A while back, a commenter tipped us off to an online store that was allegedly selling Dank cartridges, but even at that, they just take people’s money and send nothing. That site is now dead.

But a new domain has popped up in its place, dankvapecarts.com. Note the ‘s’ is missing from ‘vapes.’ Once again: There is no Dank brand owned by any company on Earth, it’s just a package printer in China selling empty packs for people to fill with who-knows-what and re-sell. So there’s no way possible that such a site can be legit.

But, like fleas, ticks, and other parasites, once the scammers find out you can rob people of their money online just by posting an online cart store, they will return to the same racket. Here’s what other fake brand stores we find from searching:

There seems to be one for every phony “brand” we can think of. But wait, it gets better:

There’s online rip-off sites for real brands too

Yep, for instance, we found 710kingpenshop.com. We talked about Counterfeit King Pens before. The real King Pen is made by LoudPack, and if you look on their website, they don’t sell vape cartridges online, they only offer a map of where to find their products.

We could of course go on, but we’ve made our point. Many of these online shops, if they ship anything at all, are probably supplied by illegal vape cart factories like the one just busted in Wisconsin.

> “The 10-person operation was filling up to 5,000 illegal carts a day, and selling them for $16 on the street.”

With selling carts for $16 and still making a profit, imagine what they could be filled with…

Once again: Verify your distributor, only buy legal

  1. I ordered from merrimenu.com. After receiving my second order, I started researching the name of the company they had as their address along with their actual address and found out the address is to a UPS store. I was getting pure carts. I read that they don’t sell them online. Im afraid now of what might be in them now.

  2. https://www.vapes420shop.com is a scam. After I placed an order for 210$ worth of product, the shipping agency, ggi shipping sent me an email stating the DEA had my package and official documents had to be produced under the threat of fines or imprisonment. They demanded 2500$ to get the documents, called me multiple times, and stressed the importance of getting the money right away to avoid jail! What else is a person supposed to do!? I want to save someone else from this horrible scam!

  3. I literally am out 195 dollars from mega bud dispensary. I use it for my anxiety and let’s just say I’m more anxious than when I started. I saved up for a month to purchase.
    I’m so sad and upset honestly. How do people order this stuff? I can’t travel to Colorado.

  4. Ordered $194 worth of all different brands from megacanabisdispenary.com and after sending bitcoin I did receive an email saying my order has been processed, but wasn’t provided a tracking number, only transaction number for the bitcoin transaction

  5. thcvapecartshops.com in conjunction with AYO Transports are operating straight out fraud. I paid $325 to include overnight shipping for an order I had absolutely no idea was illegal (there is not a single disclaimer anywhere on their website stating that the transaction was illegal) until receiving an all caps email from AYO Transports demanding $900 for a restrictive stamp in order for the package to be delivered. I have not been able to speak with anyone; however I have been stolen from, lied to, intimidated, harassed, bullied and totally evaded in multiple attempts to get a simple answer to my question – which is the exact address/location where the package arrived as documented in the shipping details on the AYO website. These companies need to be shut down.

    • The phone number listed is a medical practice in Cali, but every ad I read from the site is in Chinese. Scam city.avoid thc cart shop like the plague.

  6. There is a dispensary named Guarrenteed flight. Sold me fake Rove carts. All three tasted the same. Bad a little burnt. They Vaped different. The exhale seemed more like smoke not a vape. Smell and taste all wrong. I know what a real Rove. Tastes like. Now they traded the roves and gave me fake Pure One carts. Yeah,1 leaked half out in box the other 2 taste terrible. Also they said that they resold the Rove carts to long time customers. Yes resold, I have the text. Now I just want my money. But they said will give me a discount on my next purchase can you believe that crap. What can I do. Help

    • https://www.vapes420shop.com, this website is a fraud. They say you must spend a minimum of $170. You send them money through PayPal or Zella, which are the forms of payment that I remember. I was instructed to put for purpose gift. Once the payment is made, send copy of payment to admin@vapes420shop.com. Not to mention, every time I did a search this site came up and the Shannon person doing live chat was responding immediately to my questions. Once I sent the payment receipt, no more responses or anything from this site. The site is still up and all information about them is still up even though that won’t respond to me. FYI $205 is what they got me for and I just want to save someone else before you make the same mistake I made. Their phone number on the site is 714-584-4485
