Recent years have seen a significant increase in scams related to the Coronavirus.
And the authorities in the state of New York managed to catch two nurses who had accumulated a huge fortune by forging Corona vaccination cards, and to enter false information on the government’s database that patients had received the vaccination while they had not received any vaccinations.
Police arrested nurse Julie Devonneau, 49, who owns a health care center in the Long Island area of New York, and nurse Marisa Uraro, 44, who works for her at the center. Prosecutors said they collected about $1.5 million through the counterfeiting process.
Prosecutors charged them with second-degree fraud, among other charges, and they appeared for the first time in a New York court on Monday, and pleaded not guilty.
Prosecutors said they obtained the medical cards and syringes from the state health department, and charged $220 per adult and $85 per child.
Prosecutors said they forged a vaccination card for an undercover investigator at least once, when he did not receive any.
The police confiscated about $900,000 during a search of the first defendant’s home, in addition to a record book indicating that they collected more than $1.5 million, between November 2021 and January 2022.
