A police raid in Ho Chi Minh City on Wednesday uncovered a forgery ring responsible for the production of fake medical and teaching certifications.

Police officers confirmed on Wednesday that they had cracked a forgery ring that produced bogus government agency seals and documents.

They exposed the illicit operation earlier on Wednesday while searching the apartment and workplace of three suspects: Vu Xuan Nghia, Le Huynh Duy Anh, and Cuong Huynh Phat Dat.

Police officers seized four personal computers, 12 printers, one mobile hard drive with 500 gigabytes' worth of certificate blueprints, 50 plastic stamps, one seal maker, two inking stamps, 3,600 blank certificates, 110 school profiles, 1,300 rubber stamps, and several other documents and items related to the operation.

According to a preliminary probe, the suspects had also created websites to promote their certificate forgery service, though most of their communication was done via social media.

Many of the seized certifications are medical and teaching degrees with specific names.

Fake certifications are a major detriment to the society, police said.

Police forces are working to investigate the suspects and close the case.
