Woman Who Faked Cancer Charged with Fraud After Crowdfunding $55,000

By Mustafa Gatollari

A young woman is being charged with fraud because she led a bunch of people online into thinking that she had cancer and solicited them into giving her money via a crowdfunding campaign. The only problem: she wasn't actually ill.

I know that times are tough for some people. And whenever I get those calls from people overseas and in countries where money, opportunity, food, and resources aren't as plentiful as other industrialized nations, I almost feel bad.

I say almost because as crappy as they may have it, I just can't get around to feeling too sorry for someone who has to resort to putting tons of effort into duping old ladies into handing over their life savings because of an IRS or Microsoft virus scam.
