47news hacked the site of scammers who sell fake PCR tests for coronavirus, and found there a database with thousands of fake certificates issued. Investigation showedthat scammers work through clone sites of well-known laboratories.
The publication found a gap in one of these sites, which operates on a large scale under the brands “Invitro”, “Gemotest” and “ArchiMed”. The PCR test can be ordered directly on the Internet, and the results are sent by e-mail. The database included 4230 clients of the pseudo-“ArchiMed”, 4175 clients of the clone “Invitro” and 265 clients of the fake “Gemotest”. The client’s card contains his last name, first name, date of birth, registration address, as well as “date of sample collection”, “date of test execution” and “doctor’s decision”.
The publication entered into the system the data of the fictional character of Ivan Ivanovich Smirnov on January 23, 1988. The date of issue of the analyzes was set on November 18. The test itself was allegedly done at Domodedovo airport. In appearance, the certificate does not differ from the real one.
