    Exclamation Test Sites Warning...

    If you’ve been looking for a COVID-19 test, you probably know that they are in short supply. Unfortunately, scammers love to “help” with shortages. They’ve created fake and unauthorized at-home testing kits, and they’re still at it with fake COVID-19 testing sites.
    These fake sites can be hard to spot. They look real, with legitimate-looking signs, tents, hazmat suits, and realistic-looking tests. And the damage these fake testing sites can cause is very real.
    We’ve heard reports of these sites claiming to have ‘free tests’ — but then you’re later billed — and sometimes never receive the test that was promised. Fake sites are taking people’s personal information, including Social Security numbers, credit card information, and other health information — which can be used for identity theft or to run up your credit card bill."

    I saw this article yesterday about one "testing" company:

    COVID-19 testing sites under investigation after complaints allege 'fake tests'

    https://www.q13fox.com/news/center-f...-of-complaints

    SEATTLE - The Better Business Bureau is investigating a COVID-19 testing company that is being inundated with negative reviews and complaints. The Center for Covid Control operates sites nationwide, including in Washington and Oregon.

    Some of the complaints on the BBB's website accuse the company of scamming customers. Many of them say they've not received test results.
    Populists' Big Guys vs. Little Guys rhetoric is emotive rationalization about who plunders and who is plundered.

    People have been propagandized and scared to death. They have become hypochondriacs....... seeking a test at the first symptom of a cold or flu. Worse yet they rush to the hospital with nothing more than a cold or flu...... or Omicron (Moronic).

    If true preventative measures and early treatment were encouraged, this insanity would have be done with already.

    Given their dubious reliability what makes one "fake"?

    I watch healthy young fit adults standing in line for hours to get testsyou would think if this whole craziness was to help the most vulnerable, if those healthy adults have covid wouldn't they be doing more harm standing in line spreading it to the most vulnerablethe whole way they are testing everyone even healthy adults makes no sense. I also get a kick out of hundreds standing in line for hours to get vaccines and tests but they still can't vote in person, one more thing 2 million illegals came across the border and none I repeat none have to get the "Vaccines"

    Sounds to me exactly like any other government program

    I had one covid test last summer. I didn't ask for the test, but I got it in ER when I had to go in with tachycardia. I didn't ask what the results were and I just assume they were negative. I know some people have to be tested for work. I can't imagine why anyone would just be tested because they have some symptoms.

    I doubt I will ever be tested again.

    What a hassle for those who need testing for whatever reason.
