Premier League stars are offered FALSE Covid-19 vaccination certificates for £ 1,000 as scammers seek to take advantage of high-profile stars’ reluctance to get bitten

  • Top-flight stars targeted by people offering false vaccination documents
  • Four Premier League clubs have confirmed the scam to Sportsmail

  • Scammers are obviously keen to profit from widespread vaccine skepticism

Premier League footballers are targeted by individuals offering false vaccination certificates.

Sportsmail understands that a number of players have raised concerns with their club’s medical staff about the scam.

The stars have been told they can receive two certificates on their phones for £ 1,000, to be shown if needed.

It is not known if any players who have yet to be vaccinated have accepted the offer. Insiders from several clubs said their players briefed staff on the situation.

The Premier League say they are not aware of the scam but four clubs have confirmed its existence to Sportsmail.

Last week, the Premier League announced that 68% of their players had been fully vaccinated against Covid while 81% had received at least one jab.

But it is understood that prices fluctuate greatly between clubs. Some have the vast majority of their teams double-bitten while others are far below.

Rumors and alarms caused problems in the locker room, with players sharing stories they saw on social media.

Other sports have seen much higher use of vaccination.

Sportsmail revealed last month that only teams from seven clubs were over 50% fully vaccinated, with the Premier League stressing in a note to clubs that ‘we have a long way to go’.

Such was the seriousness of the problem, the elite also informed clubs of plans to “reward” those with the most vaccinated players.

With such skepticism lingering in some locker rooms, it looks like scammers are now looking to cash in on their scam.
