Border Patrol agents have seized thousands of fake covid vaccine cards destined for locations across the U.S.

So I thought this was going to happen if things with this pandemic continued and look at this. Fake Covid vaccine cards. I knew if it started coming to a point where we would have to show proof of being vaccinated or not then those little I got vaccinated cards would not be too difficult to replicate. And it looks like a lot of people thought about it too as  U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials said in a statement that agents have seized thousands of fake vaccine cards passing through a shipping hub in Memphis. Officers realized the cards were fake because the packages were not sent by the CDC or another medical organization. The forms also had errors, including misspellings, unfinished words and incorrect Spanish translations.

according to the FBI making or buying a counterfeit card violates federal laws against the unauthorized use of an official government agency’s seal, which can result in a fine and up to five years in prison.

I’m sure there is so much more out there too.
