LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE 3)- Some residents are concerned after a man in a white van asked for DNA samples in exchange for $20.
Employees in a white van set up shop in a minority neighborhood and offer $20 for a swab. Some people who took the offer said they felt weird about it afterward.
Passport Health told WAVE that the group is not affiliated with them. University of Louisville Analytical Chemistry Professor Dr. Aleeta Powe said swabs can only check for genes that may be connected to certain cancers.
So far the group’s identity and their motive remain a mystery.
