White House Warns People Buying Pardons That Counterfeit Pardons Are Being Sold Online

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—With thousands of desperate criminals seeking pardons on Donald J. Trump’s last full day in office, the White House issued a warning about scammers selling counterfeit pardons online.

According to the advisory, many pardon buyers have been duped by such fraudulent Web sites as AuthenticTrumpPardons.com, which purports to offer clemency for as little as twenty-five thousand dollars a pardon.

“That is not a Web site authorized by Donald J. Trump,” the White House statement read. “It originates from a server in Malaysia.”

Trump’s chief of staff, Mark Meadows, said that fraudsters selling phony pardons are “the lowest of the low.”

“It’s very sad that there are scammers out there willing to take advantage of well-meaning felons who are sincerely trying to purchase a pardon,” Meadows said. “My advice is this: if someone is trying to sell you a pardon for less than two million dollars, it’s fake.”

14. Parler Account RealDonaldTrump is asking 74,660,000 rubles for a 'Starter Pardon.'

.

The Executive Pardons are twice that.

Don't worry it's legit. They ask for rubles because it's hosted in Russia, not that it's some scam account. 😄

3. Accept only the @TheRealPardons !!!

Don't be fooled by fakes and phonies. Buy only the original!

And remember, Donald Trump knows you haven't asked pretty plea$e yet. So hurry, they will cost more after he leaves office (additional handling charges to back date, witness and notarize pardons will apply).

8. Wait! I bought the package deal for a pardon, an M.D., and license to be captain of an oil tanker

That's all still valid, right?

It's such a relief to see this crook finally LEAVE.
