Woman Fakes Cancer to Get $8k in Donations for Breast Implants
Police claim a Phoenix woman faked that she had cancer and used her made up diagnosis to procure about $8K worth of donations from people kind-hearted enough to donate, only to use the money to buy some cosmetic surgery, specifically some nice new breast implants.
Police are claiming Jamie Lynn Toler, 27, told her former boss she needed a double mastectomy and breast reconstruction and said she was uninsured and would need money for treatment.
She also told her mother and grandmother her alleged made up diagnosis.
Police say she then used her alleged cancer diagnosis to raise cash for those who felt pity for her.
According to the Associated Press, police claimed in documents that "Toler helped organize fundraisers and collected more than $8,000 beginning in September."
One problem - police say she is healthy and doesn't have cancer.
How did they find out?
Authorities claim a cancer doctor had offered to treat her for free after hearing her tale, but instead of taking the doctor up on his offer, she turned him down.
That raised suspicion.
Cops claim the investigation revealed she turned the doctor down because she doesn't need treatment.
RadarOnline reveals, "Medical records obtained by Mesa (AZ) police show she didn't have cancer and paid a plastic surgeon with the cash."
She is now charged with fraud and theft.
