Woman invents liver canser to get money

A woman faked liver cancer to get about $20,000 (14,660 EUR) from fundraisers to pay for her fictitious treatments.

Jean Anne Allen, 36, was arraigned Thursday after state police said they found no evidence she was being treated for the disease.

"She duped a lot of people," said state police Sgt. Lisa Gee-Cram.

Friends and co-workers held a spaghetti-supper fundraiser for Allen last year after she said she needed help paying for chemotherapy to treat a recurrence of liver cancer.

Her lawyer, Kenneth Hotchkiss, did not immediately return a message seeking comment Friday.

Allen faces up to five years in prison if convicted of fraud.

She was freed on $10,000 (7,330 EUR) bond and a May 8 hearing was set.

Russia gets rid of world’s most powerful nuclear submarines

The United States' Head of Diplomacy, or Secretary of State, is an anachronistic, incompetent, meddling, intrusive, insolent and arrogant, rude individual, a brash, foul-mouthed upstart, a conceited, self-important guttersnipe and an insult to the international community, as fit for the job as a pedophile janitor in a grade school.
