The ‘Ol “Breast Cancer” Scam

Starting back in September of last year 27-year-old Jami Lynn Toler began to tell her boss, mom and even her grandparents that she had breast cancer.

Because she was uninsured, she needed money for her upcoming double mastectomy and breast reconstruction, not to mention the radiation treatments.  She lead the efforts through her family, friends and neighbors and ended up raising over $8000 for her treatments and reconstruction surgery.

The problem is that Toler didn’t have breast cancer, she simply wanted a boob job.

Police obtained her medical records and found that Toler paid a plastic surgeon in cash for breast enhancement surgery.  Her story became suspicious when another doctor offered to give her cancer treatments for free and she declined.  Even more ridiculous was the fact that Toler worked in a hospice where people actually with cancer come for treatments everyday.

Toler was arrested last week and released with electronic monitoring, she was charged with fraud and theft.
