People that do this should be sentenced to 2000 hours of community service in the pediatric cancer ward of the nearest hospital.

I think that would be a great porno title.

People who do this are sociopaths and the exact kind of people you DON'T want around fragile and easily victimized children in a pediatric cancer ward.

Death by butt cancer would be too good.

This lady is a scum to us but I bet she is considered a 'scrappy starter' to the 1%. Making money from lying to everyone? Is this even surprising anymore? I bet she is getting job offers as we speak...

Reinforces a policy of don't donate to anyone, doesn't it?

OK, people that do this should be sentenced to 2000 hours of community service washing dirty diapers transported from the nurseries and infant care unit of the nearest hospital.

I wouldn't have been taken in by this as I know that Utica is in New York, not Ohio.

There's just enough scammers out there that I've already adopted such a policy. Hell, even the "legit" charities are scams.

Munchausen by proxy, aka factitious disorder by proxy.  It's almost always women.

In other words, they're the ultimate attention whores.

I have a nephew who has been battling leukaemia for several years. I hate and loathe this woman.

"A central Ohio woman faked a cancer diagnosis for her 4-year-old son and shaved his head in a scheme that convinced him and others he was dying and bilked people out of donations, authorities said. "

She convinced a small child that he had a deadly disease. *Speechless*
WTF, woman ?!?

Or work in the morgue. People like this are a special kinda ahole. For every dollar someone gave they should get one hit with a rubber hose.

Are you suggesting that we pay a dollar to hit this woman with a hose? I've got a fiver...

Probably because the Type of people to be in this situation are the kind to produce a child through a one stand or fling and so the mother is stuck with her bad decision and the father splits.

I found a new one: Tip 200 grand so Visa won't pay the 111 bucks you spent on dinner.

A savvy restaurant manager would simply call in the credit card transaction twice: once for the amount of the meal, and once for the tip (or a straight 18% tip).

Answers:  No, the 1% won't think any more of her than the next 75%. After that is where you are likely to start finding support based on what kind of BS tale of hardship she can fabricate  Yes, it is suprising, because sinking this low isn't super common for someone who isn't obviously addicted to heroicrack methane cannalcoholulous.  I doubt she's getting job offers as we speak.  Otherwise we're in complete agreement!

I did call it right (in my head) on it being a white woman and i really only came hear to say that and simultaneously pat myself on the back to make me feel good about myself.

Yup.  They make Velvet ice cream there.

Although we lack the sunny climate, hurricanes, and gators of our meth-addled Southern sister state, Ohio is the Florida of the Midwest.

They arrested a woman fairly recently for this in Nevada. She said her young son had liver cancer and she set up donation cans and what not.

First time I saw this was around the late 1970's.
Same sort of useless turd doing it too.
Bad move. Only put the collection tins in bars.
Kid took such a beat-down it wasn't funny.
No police or lawyers, just stitches and ice packs
and later on, crutches, when he could see enough
to walk.

That's where Velvet ice Cream is made :)

The Dispatch article today was priceless. Her dad was saying that this is all a lie, the child really was sick and that they trapped his daughter in order to arrest her (she was taken out of state after being release from the hospital after a suicide attempt and she came back for a supervised visit, after which, she was arrested).

stir22: as someone who has worked on many children in cancer centers, i applaud your idea...


You really shouldn't. Women like this are the kind of people who would intentionally poison their children with substances that mimic the symptoms seen in Leukemias and certain endocrine cancers

It's a form of factitious disorder known as Munchausen Bi-proxy. They seek to garner attention from caring for others who are sick, or seek to be seen as the hero in situations that they themselves cause. In the linked article, the grandmother of this child was administering chemotherapy drugs illegally obtained to mimic leukemia.

Imagine my shock when I saw my wife's fly-speck hometown (less than 2000 people) on the Fark main page. The only thing of any note in or around Utica is the Velvet Ice Cream factory, and to give you an idea of how important that is, Wikipedia deleted their entry for having "no indication of importance".

I guess now they have a new major export, douchebagery.

Utica, one of at least two US cities whose name is spelled in reverse alphabetic order.

/you probably didn't want to know that
