This has to be the lowest form fraud we have ever seen.
A Phoenix woman is being charged with fraud and theft after she extorted money from people telling them that she needed funding for cancer treatments, when indeed she was saving the money to pay for a pair of new breast implants.
As reported by Radar Online:
A Phoenix woman has been charged with fraud and theft after allegedly telling people she had cancer and needed treatment when in fact she just wanted the money to pay for breast implants.
According to cops, 27-year-old Jamie Lynn Toler told her former boss -- and even her own mother and grandparents -- she needed a double mastectomy and breast reconstruction and didn't have insurance.
They all chipped in, authorities say, and helped Toler organize fundraisers that pulled in more than $8,000.
Medical records obtained by Mesa police show she didn't have cancer and paid a plastic surgeon with the cash.
Toler was arrested Wednesday and released on bond the next day after a brief appearance in Maricopa County Superior Court.
No word on how her family feels about being taken for a ride or how the paid-for-by-fraud breast implants are looking.
