LANSING, Mich. — Attorney General Dana Nessel is requesting an investigation to discern the identity of a scammer claiming to sell vaccine cards online, according to the Michigan attorney general’s office.

We’re told a fake account was used to solicit members of a Macomb County Facebook group.

The attorney general’s office says the solicitation was removed.

“Let this be a warning to those who take a shot at buying or selling fake vaccination cards in Michigan,” says Nessel. “Although this one looks to be just a money-for-nothing scam, we will dig into complaints like this and vigorously pursue those who put lives in danger with fake vaccination cards.”
