A woman who ‘tried to forge a vaccine passport’ saw her plan backfire when her poor spelling allegedly came back to bite her.
Aspiring model Chloe Mrozak, 24, is accused of claiming she’d had the ‘Maderna’ jab on a bogus card in order to travel away for a sunny break.
She was tracked down when officials discovered she had a distinctive bible verse tattoo about ‘fixing our eyes on what is unseen.’
The Illinois native flew on a Southwest plane to Oahu in Hawaii for a holiday last Monday.
She uploaded a vaccination document showing she had received her shot in Delaware, court documents claim.
But officials received a massive tip-off that all may not be well with her alleged misspelling of the word Moderna, according to CBS Chicago.
Her papers apparently added that her shots were administered by ‘cpl wolf’ and ‘ssgt montey’ of the National Guard, hawaiinewsnow reports.
Mrozak was able to enjoy her vacation after leaving the airport without confirming her hotel reservation with screeners.
She had told authorities she was staying at the Holiday Inn Express in Waikiki, but there was no reservation under her name.
The young American also left no return flight details as she allegedly tried to evade Hawaii’s Safe Travels program, which requires proof of vaccination or a negative test.
She is believed to have been identified by the inking on her hip at Daniel K. Inouye International Airport five days later.
Her tattoo read: ‘So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary but what is unseen is eternal.’
Mrozak was arrested on suspicion of falsified vaccination documents but told officers she paid her doctor for the vaccination shot, wave3.com reports. Cops searched her medical records but allegedly found no evidence her getting a coronavirus vaccine.
The wannabe model is being held in a local correction facility after being unable to post $2,000 (£1,450) bail.
People on social media were tickled by the alleged misdemeanor that carries a fine of up to $5,000 (£3,625) and/or imprisonment of up to one year for each count.
One person said: ‘Maybe she will try to take the Jonestown & Jonestown vaccination next…’
Another wrote: ‘The best part is that this act of stupidity will persist on the Internet for years …. and will show up every time a potential employer does a search on her name.’
It comes after couple who allegedly tried to go abroad using fake vaccination passports were caught out after botching their children’s cards.
