19 Year Old Girl Fakes Cancer to Raise Money For Herself

A teenager claimed to be dying of cancer but is being accused of faking it to raise money, according to a report out of Texas.

The El Paso Times says that Angie Gomez, 19, was arrested Friday evening and was being held in lieu of $50,000 bail after being indicted on a theft-by-deception charge. The newspaper's website said court documents alleged that the amount was more than $1,500 and less than $20,000.

The Times said Gomez, 4 feet 7 inches tall and weighing 65 pounds, told classmates at Horizon High School in Horizon City that she had had leukemia as a child and the disease had reappeared -- and that doctors in January 2011 gave her six months to live.

Classmates held fundraisers and Gomez got help in forming the Achieve the Dream Foundation, ostensibly to aid families of children with cancer, according to the report.

But six months later, Horizon City police received a complaint that Gomez did not appear to be ill, and an investigation turned up no sign that Gomez ever had cancer.

After subpoenaing bank records for the Achieve the Dream Foundation, investigators estimated Gomez received $17,000 from fundraisers and other donations, the Times reported, saying it was unclear what happened to the money.

The report said police thought Gomez' mother was unaware of the extent of the fundraising.

Stealing money to the people whose only fault is to have tried to lend you a hand:
i never wish bad stuff to the people, but it would be funny if she gets actual cancer and NOBODY helps.

Re: 19 Year Old Girl Fakes Cancer to Raise Money For Herself

You know, other than her stealing and manipulating her way into peoples pockets, she has gotten 17k in lies.

Some peoples efforts are really wasted by their own idiocy. I'm quite sure if she wasn't so bent in the head/selfish that she would be a good fundraiser for charities as it takes drive and commitment to get ahead.

Unless her drive was to get a nice car.

Wonder what she'll fake to raise her bail money.

Re: 19 Year Old Girl Fakes Cancer to Raise Money For Herself

I think this crime is up there with the scumbags who steal the donation boxes at stores and churches, and one we had lately, who stole gift cards that were to be auctioned off to raise money for the family of two firemen killed in the line of duty.

Very sad! I realize these are desperate times, but, it's still very low.

I hope she gets prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Perhaps she could show some compassion for cancer victims by agreeing to plead guilty and in exchange have the state donate the estimate court costs to cancer research

Re: 19 Year Old Girl Fakes Cancer to Raise Money For Herself

This has been reported more frequently lately. One chick used the money to pay for her wedding, another used charity to get a trip to Disney World.
Also, lets not forget about the one who painted her face w/ drano and lied about being attacked, which happened because she said she "was a pretty girl"!!???
