US woman faked breast cancer for breast implants
A PHOENIX woman has been charged with fraud and theft after US authorities say she told people she had breast cancer and needed treatment so she could get money from them to buy breast implants.
Police reports filed in court say 27-year-old Jamie Lynn Toler told her former boss she needed a double mastectomy and breast reconstruction and was uninsured. She told the same tale to her mother and grandparents.
Authorities say Toler helped organise fundraisers and collected more than $8000 beginning in September.
Medical records obtained by police show she did not have cancer and paid a plastic surgeon with the cash.
Toler, who was arrested Wednesday, was released on bond on Thursday after a brief initial court appearance.
