The Price of Fake Sick Notes

Status: News article
I'm hesitant to post this, remembering that the last time I posted about fake doctor's notes I ended up with hundreds of comments from people asking me to provide them with fake notes. But here goes anyway. The Shanghai Daily has an interesting short article about the economics of the fake-sick-note industry in China. Apparently sellers of fake doctor's notes can be found outside of many Shanghai hospitals:

The price depends on the type of disease and duration of the sick leave. A note allowing two to three days of rest normally costs 20 (US$2.47) to 30 yuan. The price goes up if the person requires longer sick leave. Ailments on two-day fake notes are always fever and diarrhea. Fractures can be 40 to 50 days, said the reader, who bought a two-day note for 20 yuan.

I imagine the guys selling these notes must be like scalpers, lurking on the street corner, coming up to strangers ("Hey, buddy. Wanna buy a sick note?") I've never seen the equivalent in America. But then, I've never gone shopping for a fake sick note.

This is to funny, who would spend money on a fake doctors note for one or two days? This is only common since, we have all been to a Doctor and recieved an excuse for you or your children. All you need to do is go onto Microsoft Word and use the postcard template #3263 or #3381 along with the many fonts, if you have an old Doctors note to copy from great if not, open the phone book and look up Doctors you will find all the information needed for your excuse.I have done this many time for myself and other people, just remember the Doctors signature is in script and hard to read go threw your fonts and use the best one and reminds you of a doctors handwriting.

I stumbled upon this site at which explaining about FREE and PAID fake doctor note.

The free one is more suitable for those doing a research or just an entertainment purpose only. While, for those who really need a looks real high quality fake doctor note like Amy, you have no choice, you have to buy it. I've bought it once from that site and it works like a charm!
