In Germany, before the start of vaccination against COVID-19 in the country, scammers sent out fake invitations with an offer to pay 6 thousand euros for the vaccination, local media reported.
Residents of the Rhine-Palatinate region received invitations for paid vaccinations with a specific date and time. Opponents of vaccination may be behind the production of fakes, RIA Novosti reports with reference to the SWR TV and Radio Company.
The authorities of the state of Rhineland-Palatinate stated that in order to get vaccinated and receive an appointment time in this regard, you must personally contact the state health office and fill out a form. The start of vaccination in special centers will begin in the ground no earlier than January. On December 27, mobile teams, according to a national plan, will begin delivering vaccines and vaccinating in nursing homes.
Earlier, Secretary General of the International Criminal Police Organization Jurgen Stock warned that coronavirus vaccines will become the most valuable product in the world next year. According to the head of Interpol, even before some vaccines were approved, criminals were distributing fake drugs. In addition, he said that the attackers traded with counterfeit antiseptics, antiviral drugs and low-quality protective masks.
