The SSU exposed an international grouping selling a fake coronavirus vaccine. The perpetrators advertised their services and offered to supply the Pfizer medication. The cost of one fake "vaccine" was $250.
The grouping included citizens from Ukraine, Russia, Nigeria, and Sierra Leone. This was reported by the press service of the SSU.
In order to make money, the scammers used the information that Pfizer had officially started supplying the vaccine to Ukraine. On the Internet, they posted advertisements that enterprises registered in Ukraine could supply the vaccine from Pfizer.
The perpetrators worked primarily for clients from the Russian Federation and India—this is where their advertising campaign was targeted.
Context. In February 2021, Ukraine registered a coronavirus vaccine from Pfizer.
