      They just take your money, they don’t do anything

    • That’s all the government is doing with their testing anyway what difference does it make these people are going to rip you off on a small scale government’s going to rip you off on a large scale for the long run

      The good news, is they have probably been infected with Coroner Virus. The bad news, is they’ll infect a dozen more people, before consuming valuable medical resources needed by people who didn’t deserve this.

      @Spring Bloom in my area, the good news is they’d get shot,hung,burned, and like they say out in the woods, leave no trace. I wonder if the cops would show up if you opened fire on them.with a high power rifle.🤔

  5. Should have called the police on them. Scamming people is horrible. $240…wow

    • swindlers and convicts…where WERE the police?

      LOL! They are not getting off. Look how many people surrounded them. They got their license plate number, photos. Game over.

      @pineapplesareyummy but how many people did they scam,how many people did they infect? people don’t seem to realize we have a major problem with the test strips coming to the US being contaminated with the coronavirus

      hypothetical for you,tests are found to be contaminated with covid19 so they’re thrown away…these assholes get them out of a dumpster and tell you it’s safe to put in your mouth and charge you $240 to infect you

  6. What won’t lowlives do to get your money, THEY ARE DETESTABLE PHYCOPATHS.

    Congrats to the people chasing them away. But why aren’t they calling the cops on these people?

  8. They should be jailed! Absolute phonies trying to make money off of crisis and fear!

      @Nunsuch one last thing before I forget about you, I understood your comment clearly. You don’t care about people. Some of these scammers do their homework this guy might have spelled HIPAA wrong but some of them look so real that even intelligent peole get scammed. I’m not mad I’m just disappointed you would think that way.

    • @Jeffrey Geiser are you f****** really this stupid? Wow

    • Those who have kept inflating the numbers in the media are making even easier money than the few idiots that would get caught on fake corona virus tests.

    I feared this type of criminal activity would surface.
    Like the t.v. series American Greed. People will do anything for money.

    • Anyone who drove up and gave these rats money should lose their drivers license for life. They’re too stupid to be allowed to drive.

      Also, they deserved to lose their money.

  13. I’m confused how this is even happening with law enforcement around, how is law enforcement not checking on this?

  14. 1:33 lowkey the whitest voice i ever heard a black gentleman have haha

    • Kenia Downing | April 6, 2020 at 8:29 AM | Reply

      I was thinking the same thing!!!

      @L SAINT-LOU I have no idea how old you are and I’m not trying to be rude at all 🙂 But he was definitely not speaking proper English. It was nothing but slang-y contractions like “how’s” and “your mama” and “doin.” What we are referring to is his accent and tone. He has a shrill-ness to his voice that is typical of white men, and the specific country twang just adds to it. It’s a lovely accent, very likeable. But just wanted to point out that he was most definitely NOT speaking proper English.

    • Kenia Downing | April 7, 2020 at 12:43 PM | Reply

      @L SAINT-LOU Oh I wasn’t trying to be rude, but it seems like I’ve offended you. Not my intention! I was just sharing my reasoning. I’m sorry to hear that you’ve been stereotyped. That’s not right and I can see that it bothers you a lot. Stay healthy and take care!

    • @L SAINT-LOU it’s an accent thing dummy. Nothing to do with speaking english correctly, dummy.

    • 😂😂 I deadass thought it was someone in the background

    2:12 when she’s the most rational woman in the state you know it’s dark times.

    • Spring Bloom | April 3, 2020 at 4:04 PM | Reply

      Shes absolutely right. They are likely collecting specimens and selling them to private companies.

  16. Were the police called? These people absolutely must be caught and prosecuted. This is not in any form ok.

  17. When the reporter said you spelled HIPAA wrong, its was over…

  18. That lady with the Biggie Smalls shirt ain’t playing y’all.

    • claudia Shacklette we need more people like her, so many people are scared to call out people, strong woman!

  19. He said the tests go to a GENETICS lab 🔬 ~ DNA

    My suspicion would have been raised by the fact that “they are testing for apparently the most infectious disease known to man ”
    and they arrived in a pick up truck !
