In Europe, more and more fraudsters start to offer to purchase fake certificates with negative results of tests for Covid-19. Due to this fact, the travelers should be more careful, as DW reported citing Europol.

Recently, the law enforcers detected a few cases of falsification of tests’ results. Thus, for example, in the UK, the fraudsters offered to get fake certificates for 100 pounds sterling (about 113 euros); in Spain, such service costs 40 euros.

The Europol urges people to be more careful and notes that the fraudsters use high-quality printing equipment and special software to make fake certificates. As a result, it is very difficult to distinguish fake certificates from the original.
