A Mother Scams Donations by Pretending Her Son Has Cancer
Every time I hear a story about someone faking cancer to scam donations from people, it makes me sick. But this woman took it even further .
35-year-old Susan Stillwaggon of Pennsauken, New Jersey was just arrested for pretending her nine-year-old son had cancer to raise money in donations. And to make things WAY worse . . . she actually lied to her son and told him he had cancer to help sell the scam. So the kid thought he was dying, and had no idea he was healthy. She raised at least $3,500 in donations from people who believed her son had stage three Hodgkin’s lymphoma. The police caught her after an anonymous tip, and she’s facing charges of theft by deception, forgery, endangering the welfare of a child, and using a child to commit a criminal offense. She’s due in court later this week.
