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.
In the Netherlands, the fraudsters used various messengers to sell and spread fake certificates. The cost of the fake makes 50-60 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.
As we reported, the Council of the EU renewed the recommendations on the restriction of the freedom of movement in the EU in terms of the Covid-19 pandemic.
