Za Poddelnyj QR Kod Grozit Do 2 Let Tyuremnogo Zaklyucheniya

"At the moment 2.5 million Muscovites have received QR codes for visiting restaurants and cafes"

On June 28, new restrictions related to the spread of coronavirus came into force in Moscow. On the first day of the bans, restaurateurs and cafes lost 50 to 90% of their revenue.

On the same day, counterfeit QR codes began to be sold in the capital. Their average price is 11 thousand rubles. There are variants of codes that are made through clinics and fake PCR tests or certificates of a previous infection.

Scammers also offer QR codes. The scheme works as follows: a fake site is created, which, when scanned, gives the answer that the code is valid. In this case, the restaurant employee may either not notice the substitution of the "State Service" website, or not verify the authenticity. Over the past day, several dozen domain names of sites that copy "Gosuslugi" have appeared.

The chairman of the Federation Council committee on constitutional legislation, Andrei Klishas, ​​said that if a person uses a code linked to a fake website, this is a violation of sanitary and epidemiological rules. "Depending on the consequences, liability can come up to 2 years in prison," Klishas said. Responsibility is established by Art. 236 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.
