    Default Woman arrested for faking cancer to raise $20K

    Myspace
    Ashley Kirilow, 23, allegedly bilked $20,000 from those believing she had cancer.

    Apparently, she wasn't that good of an actress.
    A 23-year-old Canadian woman who went to extreme measures to fake having cancer— including shaving her head, starving herself and plucking her eyebrows — was arrested on Friday.
    Ashley Kirilow, of Burlington, Ontario allegedly bilked family, friends and strangers out of $20,000 for her phony charity, which she said would fund cancer research.
    Kirilow turned herself in and could face up to two years behind bars.
    She told the Toronto Star that she faked the illness to get back at her family for her dysfunctional childhood, which included her parents battling over her custody.
    "I took it as an opportunity to make my family feel bad for how I was treated," she told the paper.
    For over a year, the young woman convinced volunteers to arrange benefits for her and even persuaded a cancer-awareness group to send her to Disney World.
    She even had her knuckles tattooed with the words "LOVE LIFE" and "WONT QUIT."
    The lie started in late 2008 when Kirilow was treated for a benign lump in one of her breasts. She then told everyone she knew that she had breast cancer.
    Eventually, her parents and friends became suspicious after she told them she only had weeks to live.
    Kirilow said she'd pay back those she took advantage of. As for the scammed cash, she already spent it all.
    "I made a really big mistake and it's no ones fault but mine," she said.

    For all her contempt of her family, she is exactly like them.

    I wish people would stop blaming their parents/upbringing for their behaviour. Especially when it was just a fricken custody battle.

    Stupid twat.. like the boy who cried wolf... I hope she actually gets cancer and noone believes her.

    Excuses, excuses…

    It would be ironic (and loaded with karma fun) if she really did end up dying from cancer.
