The FBI is warning people of the potential consequences of fake vaccination card use.
In July it was announced by the Department of Justice that a naturopathic doctor had been arrested in California after giving patients fake vaccine cards and homeopathic care claiming it would prevent contracting Covid-19.
The crime is fraudulently using the official seal of a United States agency, in this case the CDC logo. The crime carries a potential 5 years in prison or $5,000 fine and is a violation of federal law.
Colleges are also worrying as the access to fake vaccine cards grows, saying a student obtaining one could cause an outbreak on campus.
The cards are being sold on the dark web for as much as $473.
