> The deputy police chief told the Tribune it is not known what the man was doing with the Covid tests he administered.

I am SOOOOOO sorry I read the article.

What an opportunity for an identity thief...gather all personally identifiable information and a DNA sample. Also license plates, potentially VIN.

Kashif Anwar was cited for operating a business without a license


Could have been worse.

Seems elaborate.

Illinois? He was probably back on the street while the copies of the arrest report were still warm from the printer.

I almost fell for that too. A dude did convince me he kept the swabs inside his fly. But then...they just didn't look like what you think of as doctor pants.

Given what we've seen over the past two years, I'll say "facebook" and "half the country"

I received my booster in a church parking lot, so I am really getting a kick out off these responses.

They're getting more elaborate, these days. Complex social engineering for much bigger prizes is becoming more common, unfortunately. There will always be those seeking the quick hit $2000-5000 payoff then hide type opportunities, but the financial industry is seeing more ambitious thieves, as well. It's not too uncommon to come across "average" people who have 401ks with several hundred thousand dollars. A social engineer might spend months putting facts and pieces together to execute a loan or distribution from a 401k. They might score $100k or more. It takes more work, but the payouts are much larger than a credit card number heist or other low level activity.
