MOUNT HOLLY, N.J. (AP) — Authorities say a New Jersey woman scammed relatives and others out of cash, meals and even a wedding by falsely claiming she had bladder cancer.
The Burlington County prosecutor has charged 40-year-old Lori Stilley of Delran with theft by deception.
Officials say in February 2011, Stilley told those close to her and posted on Facebook that she had been diagnosed with cancer. In April, she said her condition had worsened.
Authorities say supporters raised more than $10,000.
Supporters became suspicious in November 2011 when she posted that she was feeling better and believed a miracle was coming.
Her lawyer, Adam Malamut, tells the Burlington County Times that authorities have not presented him with any evidence that Stilley did anything wrong.
Stilley is free on $25,000 bail.
