Border Patrol agents say they’ve confiscated thousands of fake COVID-19 vaccination cards shipped to the U.S. from China.
CBP officials say 121 bundles seized in Memphis contained more than 3,000 fake cards printed with the CDC logo.
It was easy to spot them as fake, however – the cards were full of errors including misspelled words and incorrect Spanish translations.
Buying or selling counterfeit vaccine cards is punishable by a fine and up to five years behind bars.
