Certificates are usually not expensive because the originators may have decided to issue a large number of them and make quick money. In turn, one of the sellers of counterfeit certificates at ETC publicly admitted to the New York Times reporter that he had sold dozens of certificates online for $ 20, forcing Americans to vaccinate “government tyrants” mass.
If the vaccine is confirmed, with first one and two doses, it is usually $ 20 to $ 60. Five dollars must be added if anyone wants to wrap this document in foil. There are also more expensive offers, where fraudsters charge up to $ 200 per document – We read in “Rzeczpospolita”.
Certificates are forged after removal at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). They are obtained by people who have actually been vaccinated against the corona virus. – Hundreds of such documents can now be purchased online, and probably thousands have already been sold, says Saud Khalifa, founder of the Polispot website, which allows online fraud detection, citing the New York Times. In his opinion, fraudsters will not cover up their activities because there are still plenty of “wax card” offers with included data and clean “blank vaccine cards”.
Airlines are more open to vaccinated people and a lot of people are willing to buy them because they do not cause travel problems. In Poland, too, exemption from isolation is granted upon receipt of a certificate of acceptance of the double dose.
Americans are fighting this practice. U.S. attorneys received offers from Twitter, Shopify and eBay.
