At a time when people are searching for COVID-19 vaccination ability and some places are requiring a vaccine certification, the dark web is doing its usual shady business.

According to reports, vaccines and certifications are being sold on the dark web in a price range between $500 and $600.

The vaccines are being advertised under brand names like Johnson & Johnson, AstraZeneca, Sputnik and SinoPharm, according to Check Point Research (CPR).

There has been a 300 percent spike in advertising since the vaccines have become public.

“It’s clear to us that the target audience for darknet vaccine vendors are actually dealers, not necessarily the public at large,” Check Point spokesperson Ekram Ahmed told Fox News.

“The vendors want foot soldiers on the ground, in multiple geographies, to distribute the full-spectrum of coronavirus services: vaccines, vaccination certifications and negative COVID tests.”

The Federal Trade Commission issued an advisory on COVID vaccine scams earlier this year which warns against making a payment to be put on a list or have an appointment scheduled for a vaccine.

This discovery by CPR is just the latest in the growing list of COVID-19 scams as people become more desperate to get their shots and certifications. Don’t fall for it.
