The Pandemic might mean a horrible and harsh time for so many but for Julie DeVuono, a 49-year-old nurse practitioner, and Marissa Urraro, a 44-yearold licensed practical nurse, it was the right time to unleash a cash machine selling fake covid vaccination cards; It is alleged that these two nurses were accused of selling fake vax cards to adults for $220 and $85 for children, as reported by the Suffolk County Police Department on Friday.
It is allegedly that these two merchant nurses made off with more than $1.5 million in profits. Prosecutors stated that “Investigators uncovered $900,000 in cash at DeVuono’s home”; After which they entered false data into the New York State Immunization Information System (“NYSIIS”).
“As nurses, these two individuals should understand the importance of legitimate vaccination cards as we all work together to protect public health,” said Suffolk County Police Commissioner Rodney K. Harrison. “This is another example of great investigative police work by the SCPD, and I commend District Attorney Tierney for his partnership.”
