People Are Buying The COVID Vaccine On The Darknet

Prices range between $500 and $750 for doses of AstraZeneca, Sputnik, Sinopharm or Johnson & Johnson jabs.

Fake vaccination certificates are also on sale from anonymous traders for as little as $150.

The darknet, also called the dark web, is an unregulated part of the internet that can only be accessible through specific browser tools.

It has been reported that there has been a “sharp increase” in vaccine-related adverts on the darknet, but it’s yet to be proven if the vaccines listed for sale are real or fake.

Check Point is a cyber-security company, and their researchers have been monitoring hacking forums and other marketplaces since January, which is when vaccine adverts were first reported to them.

Apparently, the number of vaccine adverts have more than tripled since they first started monitoring them, and sellers appear to be from the US, UK, Spain, Germany, France and Russia.

Some of the vaccine advertisements include the Oxford-AstraZeneca at $500, and Johnson & Johnson and Sputnik each at $600, and Sinopharm at $750.

One particular seller is even offering next-day delivery, saying: “For overnight delivery/emergency leave us a message.”‘ Another seller had a buy two get a third free offer.

The fake vaccination cards are apparently on sale for $150. Proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result are things that are required for international travel. Clubs and large events have also been speculated to start using them for safe entrance once they open again.
