A New Jersey woman who goes by the Instagram handle ‘AntiVaxMomma‘ just got busted selling fake vaccine cards online. Prosecutors say 31-year-old Jasmine Clifford sold more than 250 fake cards over the social media platform, typically for $200 a piece. She’s also accused of working with another woman to fraudulently enter people into the New York State Immunization database – at a cost of $250.
TizzyEnt, who has more than 2 million TikTok followers, later created a video laying out what appeared to be a scheme by AntiVaxMomma to sell the fake cards and have them registered in state databases. Scandalous right? He also tried to notify law enforcement. In an ironic twist, Clifford’s Instagram scheme was uncovered by… a TikTok user, who posted a video about it last week.
According to prosecutors, Clifford, a self-described online entrepreneur, started hawking forged Centers for Disease Control and Prevention vaccination cards through her AntiVaxMomma Instagram account in May. Concerns about forged cards have grown as states, cities, and corporations have shown more willingness to mandate vaccinations for specific activities and groups.
