Having proof that you have received a COVID-19 vaccine is being required around the country to enter certain businesses and attend events, which has caused some vaccine-hesitant people to turn to the black market in search of fake vaccine cards -- something that could land you in jail.
Senior investigative reporter Leslie Marcus reports on how people are finding these fraudulent cards and what can happen to you if you are found with one. She says fake vaccine cards are available to purchase on encrypted social messaging apps and platforms and she was able to get offers for cards in just minutes. She says sellers claim they are working with real doctors and can add buyers to their state's registry in order for the fake card to seem legit.
During her investigation, she paid almost 300 dollars for a fake card and was sent a tracking number. Later, she received a message saying she would need to pay an additional 200 dollars due to a "security hold" on the card. She did not pay the additional cost and was never sent a card.
The Doctors note The Department of Justice and the FBI have issued warnings about trying to buy, sell or create counterfeit vaccine cards and notes it is a crime and could lead to 5 years in federal prison and up to $5000 in fines.
During her investigation, Leslie witnessed sellers using scare tactics and false information about the vaccine in an attempt to persuade people to buy a fake card and not simply just get the actual vaccine.
Dr. Andrew Ordon stresses, "We know the vaccine is safe," and The Doctors encourage you to get the vaccine if you have not done so already.
