The Better Business Bureau is warning people not to share photographs of their COVID vaccination cards on social media stating it could make them vulnerable to identity theft.
Scammers are also using the photographs to make phony versions of the vaccination cards.
The cards contain people’s full names and birthdays, as well as information about where a person received the vaccine.
“If your social media privacy settings aren’t set high, you may be giving valuable information away for anyone to use,” the BBB said.
Scammers in Great Britain were already caught selling fake vaccination cards on TikTok and eBay.
“It’s only a matter of time before similar cons come to the United States and Canada,” the BBB said. “Posting photos of your card can help provide scammers with information they can use to create and sell phony ones.”
The BBB suggested people share photos of vaccination stickers instead of the vaccination cards.
