GoingFast.Us Scam: How It Works
Many users have been sending us emails inquiring about a potential GoingFast.us Scam. The website redirects to the Walgreens website, which is more confusing for readers, especially when looking for GoingFast.us reviews.
Luckily we have the answer. But first, here is a screenshot of the website that opens when you type in www.goingfast.us in the browser:
Can you see anything interesting? The GoingFast scam (aka the Going Fast redirection) lies in the domain name. Look at the very top part of the image. In the browser, instead of showing goingfast.us, it says: https://www.walgreens.com/store/c/hand-sanitizer/ID=360353-tier3
That “ID=360353” means identification for a company/individual that is an affiliate. It means that the folks behind the “Goingfast.us scam” registered the domain then redirect it to Walgreens. This also means that they will get a small commission from every sale made through that link. That’s all. It’s more of a marketing trick, not really a scam. They work for others.
