The Washington Post reports:
More than 3,000 counterfeit vaccine cards arriving from China were recently seized by border officials at the port of Anchorage, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said. The cards had “low quality printing,” CBP said Thursday, and mimicked the cards used by the CDC to show proof of coronavirus vaccination.
The shipment was one of the largest recent shipments to be seized by border officials. CBP said last week that its officers at the port of Memphis stopped 15 shipments of fraudulent vaccine cards in one night, most coming in small quantities.
On Tuesday, a Chicago pharmacist was charged by the Justice Department with stealing authentic vaccine cards and selling them on eBay for $10 each.
