A week ago we detailed the story of the American couple getting fined $50,000 by the government of Canada after they were caught providing border agents with fake COVID-19 “proof of vaccination” documents at the airport.
We noted this seeming unusual occurrence was likely the tip of the iceberg in terms of the rise of an entire sophisticated counterfeit documents industry geared toward getting around new restrictions quickly going into places, such as the recent New York City ban on the unvaccinated dining in restaurants or entering gyms and other public venues. This also as so-called digital ‘COVID passports’ aren’t yet uniform within the US or especially around the globe, and as global protests and pushback are on the rise, especially in Europe.
And most recently the United States has mandated that all federal workers must be vaccinated, with the only alternative being a regimen of regular testing and mask-wearing. Major employers are also increasingly issuing mandates for their in-person staff. There will, without doubt, be many who refuse what is still at this point an experimental vaccine (given lack of formal FDA approval and the regular rigorous process), while also naturally desiring to avoid the extreme inconvenience of daily social distancing and generally being placed in a
second class “non-vaxxed” social category.
The Wall Street Journal has documented multiple instances of fake vaccination cards and their proliferation on the internet, based largely on the relatively easy to forge initial CDC vaccination cards. “In the U.S., fake vaccination cards purportedly issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have appeared for sale on sites such as Amazon, eBay, and Etsy,” the report details.
“In May, officers arrested a bar owner in California for allegedly selling fake vaccination cards costing $20 each,” it continues. “The alleged perpetrator was charged with identity theft, forging government documents and falsifying medical records.”
And a DOJ spokesman confirmed in the report that “While we do not have definitive numbers, we are seeing more of these types of schemes recently.” This includes the example of a California licensed practitioner of homeopathic medicine, described as running a scheme where clients would order “immunization pellets” and receive CDC vaccination cards in return, including detailed instructions on how to write in specific vaccine lot number information into the card.
Currently, there’s talk in the US of implementing a uniform digital vaccination “proof” for each person fully vaccinated; however, as the WSJ details further in Europe where such an EU pass does exist, fakes are still popping up all over:
Despite the more-secure format, fake versions of the EU digital certificate have multiplied. In Italy, there are about 30 social-media profiles purporting to sell fake certificates, about 500 of which have been sold in the past few months, according to Ivano Gabrielli, an Italian police commander who oversees online fraud investigations. Telegram is the main platform being used for the sale of the fake certificates, he said.
Ultimately the current fakes that are out there, especially the digital fakes, are believed to be easily detectable. But this would all change in a scenario where information in a nation’s vaccine registry might be hacked, for example.
Vaccine passports could create 'two-tier society', equality watchdog warnshttps://t.co/gzbJinfzcR

But like with any certificate or sought-after identity-related document in the past, forgers will without doubt get better at the craft.
The WSJ report provided another interesting example of fraudulent vaccine passes in the EU as follows:
An Italian channel on Telegram is currently advertising a digital version of a vaccine certificate for €100, the equivalent of $118, and a printed copy for €120. “Family packs” consisting of four passes can be had for €300 for digital versions and €350 for printed copies. Passes can be paid for in cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin and in some cases through PayPal or with Amazon gift cards.
Authorities in the US and EU are working the counteract and shut down the increasingly sophisticated schemes.
Without a doubt, the fakes will continue to be proliferated and will show up increasingly in the United States as more locales and possibly even entire states enact a ‘two-tiered system’ of sorts segregating the status of the vaxxed vs. unvaxxed. Each new day of this and it seems we’re all living in a Black Mirror episode.
This will make some kind of untamperable vaccinations ID a necessity, permanently linked to an instantly accessible database and uncompromisingly attached to the individual involved, a requirement to prove your vaccination status.
A reasonable thing to do to keep us all safe and secure.
A reasonable thing to do to keep you safe. You would give your freedom up for that. Like our forefathers warned us about people like you – you don’t deserve freedom!
It is harder to duplicate a digital hand print on a scanner or under the skin with a microchip, or even harder for a black light to show the Luciferase in your veins on your hand.
The Mark of the Beast is on the hand or the forehead.
Ethical hacking at its finest. Keep at it!
Covid vaccination records, vaccine passports, vaccine certificates, etc. are merely and only a control scheme. It is naive and silly to believe otherwise, as if we don’t have enough social controls in effect already. Those insisting on establishing these “passports” are truly Bolsheviks and Stalinists. You have to wear a mask, your have to social distance, you have to submit to lockdowns, you can’t cross a border, you have to have the “vaccine”, you have to have the booster, then you’ll have to be vaccinated regularly. Now new “variants” are appearing that will require even more control measures. The State not only wants 100% vaccinated, but wants to punish those who decide not to. The purpose of punishment is due to the fact the State cannot tolerate an individual who exercises sovereignty over themselves, whose personal will supersedes the will of the State, let alone millions practicing any form of sovereignty. Former gov’t officials have even been quoted saying it is now easier to kill millions of people than control millions of people. Those who submit to vaccines are will be easier to control, those who don’t, well…. Whoever can’t see this must be a totally successfully propagandized idiot. The best to those who are still free individuals.
Then there’s official mass misinformation about being disseminated (the MSM is complicit, it is a groveling propaganda organ of the State, and knows it). The State issues a river of conflicting, confusing, irrelevant, pointless, and even dangerous “information” about this “pandemic”. Yet daily, we see members of officialdom at all levels of gov’t, ex-presidents, celebrities, and a few other select privileged groups, ignoring the mandates placed on citizens. Their lies are bad enough, but they have to add gross hypocrisy to it all. We have seen it over and over and over again it’s “do what we say, not what we do”. They merely justify all in the name of power. If these people had lived in Russia or China during the formation of their communist regimes they would have been ardent participants of the terror apparatus that mass exterminated untold millions of people in the name of justice, equality, and safety.
The truth is the State is composed of people and entities who are soulless sociopaths, ambitious degenerates, the most vulgar and depraved sort. Devoid of the most basic aspect of human morality, totally lacking a moral dimension, gleefully lying, cheating, and stealing and committing every kind of depravity with no compunction. Who, for the sake of power, desire to impose the collective will of those who comprise the State on the citizens no matter how pointless or irrational or harmful. THIS, is the actual characterization and reality of the State.
Don’t be surprised at any measure the State comes up with next. Look for forced inoculations, fines, detention in holding centers, breaking apart families, revocation of driver’s licenses, and denial of internet and cell phones.
Chicago, this weekend, 13 dead, 73 wounded. 2 police officers also shot. One of them died and the other is fighting for his life. The black communist mayor blames the guns. The offenders are her people. She’s in denial. Heyjackass.com always has the stats.
Lightfoot says that guns are responsible and are the enemy.
Apparently it’s not the people using them we need to do something about.
Ad she has the support of the majority of the people there, they elected her, so she must be right.
Yawn….. I don’t care, they obviously don’t, so why should anyone else. The politicians there call it a tragedy, but they won’t change their politics and their policies. They’d rather blame inanimate objects and our Constitutional rights. Chicago is just another American city succumbing to 3rd world conditions. Besides, they already have extremely strict gun control laws, and just keep passing more, as if that makes even the slightest difference. Politicians in several urban areas have even proposed now that self defense should be criminalized, and declare that people who defend themselves are racists. Yea, that will fix everything. As for the drivel about guns as the cause, there are likely at least 2-3 guns in most homes in the county I live in, families go to shooting ranges here, people do both concealed and open carry, there’s been no murders in memory. The worse part is politicians want to punish the rest of gun owning Americans and strip away our 2nd Amendment rights because they can’t control the 3rd world mentality causing the problem to begin with. That, and they want the population helpless and defenseless. And I’m trying to reconcile if a white shoots a non-white the nation goes into meltdown, but when non-whites are killing each other everyday the politicians and MSM say practically nothing, how does one square this fact?
“Someone should introduce a bill mandating that you have to show your vaccination card to vote and watch everyone on the Left’s brain malfunction and explode,” Trump Jr. tweeted.
Luciferase / Luciferin enzymes, such as from glowworms and jellyfish, are in an indivisible tattoo, detected by an app for your cellphone — years before the fake scamdemic.
The USPS had already patented voting with a permanent data trail. via block the chain, before the voting debacle.
(Crisis actors) “
Authoritiesin the US and EU are working the counteract and shut down the increasingly sophisticated schemes.”
Look into quantum dots and what they are capable of.
Also look into Gates suggested use of them for vaccines.
That would cut me out of voting. Of course, voting makes no real difference anymore, especially with the present authoritarian regime in power. It is just a way to make the useless eaters feel as if they are doing something.
Why would the left not want that? Clean sweep of both houses and presidency if that was the rule.
That’s funny, that covid will create a two-tiered society. News flash, we already have one. We have a two-tired society in many ways.
One is a two-tiered system of justice, let me provide a few examples. Billionaires and politicians, and select others may and have committed horrible crimes against the American people, broke federal laws, even commit treason, they never pay for their crimes, you know who they are, and we all know it.
Or rioters can loot, burn, destroy, and assault; causing billions of dollars in economic damages and commit real mayhem in cities across the US, apparently that is okay. But the the gov’t is going to great lengths to arrest the protesters in the capital building, labeling them insurrectionists, kept isolated in high security cells for months (reports of beatings and torture are leaking out), and can be imprisoned for more than 20 years.
Another one, officialdom and celebrities demanding the wearing of masks and social distancing, but we’ve seen example after example of do as we say, not as we do.
One more, there is a hyper concentration of wealth in this country, the “elites” are bleeding the middle class dry; I can provide an example of that. Back in the 90’s college education was still fairly priced. But Wall Street and big fund managers decided they could create another revenue stream to them by financing college educations, with the proviso that those who take loans cannot default on them, thus driving up the costs of education to unsustainable levels and encumbering the income of graduates for years. More money flows into Wall Street and not a g*dd*m thing was produced. If average citizens ran a scheme like that we’d be sentenced to years in jail.
I can cite endless examples more but the point is made. A two-tiered society already exists.
anyone tries that shit with me they’ll have trouble on their hands.
I’ve been looking for fakes and can’t find them. Might have to learn to navigate the dark web?
