DHS Investigating Counterfeit Medical Supplies

Five states have received fake N95 masks.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced that it had launched an investigation into a large medical supplies forgery scheme that affected at least five states. Several hospitals were sold fake 3M N95 masks, which are surgical-grade and the best at preventing the spread of disease. DHS Assistant Director for Global Trade Investigations Steve Francis stated that the fakes gave medical workers a “false sense of security.”

DHS also warned consumers that the general public has been targeted by fraudulent masks and that fake vaccination websites have also been launched. The investigations by DHS have already resulted in 1,250 raids resulting in the seizure of 10 million counterfeit masks. Additionally, there are further investigations going on to see if the government purchased any of these fake masks. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That God would guide DHS as they work to protect Americans.
  • For CBP agents as they screen shipments of supplies coming into the country.
  • For God to bring about an end to the pandemic.
