TURNERSVILLE, New Jersey (WPVI) — A South Jersey postal worker allegedly made thousands of dollars by selling more than 400 fake vaccine cards that she produced and printed at work.
Lisa Hammell, 39, of Turnersville, was among those charged in a COVID-19 fraud scheme announced by the Department of Justice on Wednesday.
Officials tell ABC News the enforcement action includes criminal charges against 21 individuals, including Hammell, for their alleged participation in the schemes.
Investigators say it was Hammell’s postings that helped them catch on to her alleged scheme, which they say started in March 2021 as federal vaccine mandates were coming down.
Hammell, who was arrested Tuesday, allegedly messaged an unidentified individual on March 27, 2021, showing off two fake cards she printed at the post office where she worked.
