FREDERICKSBURG, Va – The woman convicted of faking cancer to raise thousands of dollars for her treatment has been ordered to pay a $100 fine.

Martha Ann Nicholas pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor charges of obtaining money by false pretenses after prosecutors say she raised $1700 dollars selling “Cancer Sucks” T-shirts to family, friends, and strangers to help treat the stage-4 ovarian cancer she even didn’t have.

Authorities began investigating Nicholas in 2011 after they received a report that she was collecting donations based on a medical condition she hadn’t been diagnosed with. Nicholas was an active fund raiser for American Cancer Society and help raised $12,000 for the group, which the they say they received. What got Nicholas in legal trouble was the $1,700 that she raised for herself.

Aside from the $100 fine, Nicholas was also given a suspended sentence of a year in jail on each charge and ordered not to take part in any charitable causes. Her defense attorney added that his client had paid back the money she collected while also giving an explanation as to why she was faking having cancer.

She had been suffering from a psychosomatic condition that led her to believe she had a cancer-like illness, Defense attorney Sam Simpson said.

“We weren’t dealing with a physical illness, we were dealing with psychiatric illness, and that was really manifesting itself through her actions,” Simpson said as I make dismissive wanking motions.

According to Simpson, his client has since been approached by network television “physician help” programs about being a guest on their upcoming shows discussing realistic behavioral and medical oddities than can result from psychological problems.

He told reporters he advised Nicholas that, “I don’t think going on ‘Dr. Phil’ is going to bring closure.”

Nicholas got lucky getting judge John R. Stevens during her sentencing. In January, substitute judge Robert D. Laney refused to accept the plea agreement, stating the agreement for no active jail time undermined the credibility of legitimate charitable causes.

Anyone else remember when some of our members were scammed by another member pretending her kid had cancer? Fun times.

    I always suspected Janice Dickinson was sick.

  • Sam

    $100 – Oh yeah, that’s really going to teach her a lesson. Idiots.

  • JohnQknowitall

    Our family was scammed?

  • JohnQknowitall

     Well she did raise $12,000 for the American Cancer Society and gave them all the money collected. It appears there was something wrong here along the lines of a psychiatric problem.

    I think the sentencing was just in this case.

  • CT

    Ah, a little Munchhausen by internet to warm your heart. 

  • Sam

    But then shouldn’t the judge have ordered her to go to counselling or SOMEthing? I think such a lenient sentence isn’t going to stop her doing it again when she next has a mental breakdown.

  • CT

    Dear DDers.  I am here to tell you of my plight.  I have an illness that requires me to buy designer shoe wear.  I was first diagnosed with this illness about 20 years ago and it had been in remission until recently with the new metallic lines of sandals that have recently hit the shoe market.  My illness is no longer in remission and I spend an hour almost every morning looking for new summer sandals.   Please donate to my fund.  I am afraid if I do not do something about this soon it will branch out into multiple purchases of  dildos and a most recent discovery of buttplugs. 

    I beg you.  Please help me.

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Morbid

    Yes, this is another story that I had written up before realizing it happened last month. *shrugs*

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Count Rackula

    Wasn’t her name Owd Scrat? I always wonder what that bitch is up to.

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Count Rackula

    Damn, we have the same affliction. Let’s start our own group therapy practice and charge people a cover to get in.

    We could live like kings. WE COULD LIVE LIKE KINGS!!!

  • CT

     I feel better just knowing I am not alone. 

  • Deety

    No, that smell is just bulimia.

  • Sam

    Ah yes, that pungent aroma of re-hashed cocaine, vodka, and decaying plastic.

  • Deety

    Oh god, metallic heels… Mmmmm….

    (Not metallic, but just got these: http://www.zappos.com/product/7920325 )

  • malq

     Yes, that was high drama. In the forums there is a thread called my son is sick.

  • Deety

    At least the quality is consistent.

    Raising the bar is for people who aren’t drunk all the time. ;-p

  • DangerousKindOfSnark

    I have almost the same thing, but with designer purses and bags. You think the two could be related?

  • DangerousKindOfSnark

    So cute! How is Zappos? 

  • CT

    And now you can dance all night?  Get it?  Yeah, I’m lame.  Cute.  I also love their offshoot site 6pm but that is hit or miss or shoemall.  I really do have a problem right now.  I’m a dead woman when this credit card bill hits my house.  

  • CT

    SOBS.  I also have that affliction too.  I got an email for a Kate Spade sample sale a week ago and almost shit my pants I was so deliriously happy.  I believe it is all connected. 

    BTW, Zappos has a boatload of stuff on sale.  I have my eye on Cole Haan over the shoulder bag but need to wait until Monday when my credit card cycle is new and it doesn’t look so bad to my darling spouse. 

  • WhatThe

    That was such an ugly situation.  I felt so awful for many of our members that gave her so much time and attention. 

  • Zazen

    You are gonna get me in trouble.

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Count Rackula

    I haven’t gotten my tax return yet, we need to stop talking about this before I go and clean out Malq’s bank account.

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Count Rackula

    I couldn’t believe that shit when it happened. And maybe I’m wrong, but it just feels like we’re all pretty close here at the DD. The fact that she would take advantage of those bonds just made me sick. I always look back on that and hope she’s having a shitty time, but she’s probably just figuring out how to scam people without actually being detected. Dumb cunt.

  • CT

    What section of the forums? 

  • Deety

    That is, in fact, my highest aspiration.

  • Deety

    San Francisco’s Chinatown has dozens of little stores that sell knock-off designer purses, some that look really good. I can easily blow a day wandering around shopping, and bring home a few purses for under $100. Perhaps too easily…

  • Zazen
  • Lena60

    Lmao Sam

  • Lena60

    Try this site sweety 6PM.com. I hope you recover :)

  • Lena60

    oops posted before I read this.

  • Lena60

    No problem Morbid, it still informs us of this lady and what she is capable of.

  • malq

    Zazen got it, but there is another thread called Divination and related issues,   The one time the forums pulled together and tried to give her son Seth a Christmas and it was a scam.  She needs to be punched in the cunt.

  • CT

    Great minds.

  • Lena60

    Thanks for posting that zazen, I never would have found it.What a piece of shit that woman is.GRRRR!

  • Deety

    But it was such a brilliant plan. If the DD banded together for a worthy cause, we could raise dozens of dollars! That’s why Morbid is rollin’ in the dough.

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Count Rackula

    You told me about that site and I put myself in a little more debt. You’re just enabling everyone!

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Count Rackula

    Lol. Dozens. I can only imagine the type of cause we would all unite for. Probably to win the bid for ‘World’s Largest Bottle of Liquor’ or a novelty taxidermy alligator wearing a cowboy hat… or something equally enchanting.

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Count Rackula

    I started reading it again, and I had to stop after about the fifth sympathy message. My blood pressure is high enough today.

  • Lena60

    I know sorry, I showed my daughter, who said, “mom?” “why did you show me this site?” “It’s like showing a crack addict where all the crack dens are”. lmao

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Count Rackula

    At least you know where to go if you ever want to go into the business of selling fashion! I’m sure you could rob us all blind. I remember when you sent me that link and I was just like “What the hell, Lena.”

    And then I gave in, you huge, huge jerk. :P

  • CT

    That’s unfucking believable.  How a person could be so elaborate with a lie is beyond me.  I am not a big liar besides the white lie here and there -  I can barely remember what I ate for breakfast yesterday let alone this sort of shit. 

    I have a sister who at times lies out her ass and I’ve busted her on it as well as the rest of my siblings so regularly.  I always tell her – why lie so much?  It never fails you rat yourself out with your stupid bullshit stories so don’t even bother.

    Well, that is if I really have a sister….

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Count Rackula

    I used to know someone like that, too, only he lied about just about everything. He’d lie about where he was (even if he wasn’t doing anything wrong), what he ate, who he was with. He would just lie about anything and everything, even when he hadn’t done anything wrong. It was fucking weird to catch him lying about stupid shit like what he ate, I always kept my distance because that just gives me the creeps. You just never know what’s true and what isn’t.

  • CT

    I am not sure if it is you or someone else that is the Amazon Prime junkie like me but I have found that if I find something on Zappos I must have I will also do  a Prime search to see if I can find it cheaper and get faster.  Love that 2nd day free shipping.  CT’s shoe tip for Thursday, March 15th.  

  • curiousalways

    well if you’re gonna be a dead woman, might as well set up the camera and make sure the DD gets first dibs on the pics.  We will have some sort of memorial on here for ya.   BTW, please change your will so I get all the cute new sandals. 

  • GGMon

    Go to payless, I went there the other day and they have a cute selection of shoes. So with your donations you can buy twice as much!

  • CT

    Last summer we were at my mothers and my sister told my Aunt – not knowing I was behind her – that a guy tried to rob her at a Target store in MD and she stopped him by hitting him with grill cleaning brush from the Dollar General store and he ran away saying he was going to sue her for assault.  What a crock of shit.  I told my mother and she said “WHAT?  CT, you are making that up.”  I told my mother, “sorry, my mind doesn’t do crazy.” 

  • CT

    I’m an 8 1/2.  Does that work for you?

  • curiousalways

    and to think, all this time I thought you were perfect.

  • GGMon

    Ugh, I can’t believe the DD community was scammed!

  • hicusdicus

     If you want to get into lies just listen to what your president is telling you. We  no longer have a government we have a bullshit story teller. Does your maybe mythical sister work for the government?

  • Deety

    I always google it, and see if it’s less elsewhere. But some, like the one I just linked, are the same everywhere. And Zappos always upgrades me to free overnight shipping. <3

  • hicusdicus

     She would probably like that. No more munching just keep on punching.

  • curiousalways

    well I’m only 5’2 so my foots a little smaller, but hey I will make it work!!!

  • Deety

    I love them!

    I bought a gorgeous pair of sandals there well over two years ago, but never wore them. (Turns out, if I’m going anywhere suitable to wear 5″+ heels, I’m planning on drinking too much to be able to walk in them.) So I called and sheepishly asked if I could return them for credit, and they said yes (!), and emailed me a return label so I don’t even have to pay for shipping. Their customer service is the best I have ever seen from any web company, hands down. They beat NewEgg, even.

    They can be pricey, so definitely shop around, but the shoes are good quality, in my experience.

  • Deety

    DemonCon 2013. Assuming the world lasts that long.

  • hicusdicus

     Raising the bar is done so midgets can’t drunk and hit you in the nuts.

  • CT

     She actually does! 

  • Deety

    And don’t you mean ‘World’s Largest Box of Wine’?

  • hicusdicus

     I will donate my mothers old army boots. Then you can march around with your dido and a french tickler bhutt plug. That vision just gave me the willies and a woody.

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Count Rackula

    You are. The. Best. Yes. Yes, that’s exactly what I meant.

  • CT

    I will tell you what I have told others. If you ever see me walking around in Birkenstocks and socks it’s over for me. I’ve lost it. You can add army boots to that. I’m too old and too cute to change my girly ways now.

  • hicusdicus

     That figures!

  • Jemimabean

     That was sick! Who wishes their own child sick? Because essentially, if you’rte blabbing to the planet that your son is dying, you’re practically saying “Hey, Universe, just come and get him!” And the money, and the gifts- Jesus! So, so wrong- leaps and bounds ahead of just being an attention whore. I have a family member who pulls similair shit, from the “abusive alcoholic husband” to the “miscarried twins” etcetera. Such crap, we just cut her out of our lives.

  • hicusdicus

    Just play dead every night untill it all goes away.

  • hicusdicus

     You could rent from the little ole lady who lives in a shoe. There might be some strings attached. But she is a good sole. You better watch out for the heel who hangs out in he back.

  • hicusdicus

     As long as there is a mirror in your house you are not alone. Don’t put one in front of the toilet it could be embarrassing.

  • hicusdicus

     Were there any cash donations?

  • hicusdicus

     Janet Dickenson made me sick does that count?

  • hicusdicus

     Old and cute! I did not know they went together. I am old how do I get cute.

  • JohnQknowitall

    Good point, but the $1,700 apparently was in cash, so I assume (we know what that can mean) that a chunk of it was cash.

  • Lena60

    Another good one is Fragrancenet.com.

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Count Rackula

    I’m telling the credit collectors it’s all your fault!

  • CT

    Never said I was old. 

  • Lena60

    That is realy creepy to know someone who lies like that.I have met a few like that.

  • Lena60

    When hasn’t the government not lie?

  • hicusdicus

     You did so!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Lena60

    She probably did not even have a son.

  • hicusdicus

     When does the government not lie. When ever it says your under arrest!!!!!!!!

  • RayHanson

    Could be his fault too.

  • CT

    I did no such thing.  I said was too old not old.  I’m one of six kids – I can argue with you all day. 

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Count Rackula

    None of you are helping me out here at all.

  • hicusdicus

    I am an only spoiled child and I always get my way…. I am to old and to cute to change my girlish ways. Okay I will concede you are an old cutie.  How come you never give me likes? Thinking somebody likes me is why I keep coming to DD. Nobody in the county I live in likes me and only time my wife likes me is when I am asleep.

  • DangerousKindOfSnark

    I am an Amazon Prime junkie, love that service. I’ve never ordered shoes from them though. I’m so picky I’m always afraid I’ll hate them for a stupid reason. 

  • DangerousKindOfSnark

    Ohhh, if they are that forgiving I may have to try them.

  • DangerousKindOfSnark

    I love sample sales. I just got my Coach spring preview email…

    Stay away from that. It’s Uncrate for women.

  • DangerousKindOfSnark

    Why not both?

    StopitStopitStopit! I made the mistake of clicking on that link… found something I liked on the first page.

    Fuck you so hard right now. :P

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Count Rackula

    I need to get the fuck out of this thread.

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Count Rackula

    That would make the best party ever. The cowboy alligator would be my date, no doubt.

  • JGo555

    Of course Dr. Phil won’t bring closure! The dude never practiced psychology! That & he had to pretend to like Oprah to get a show that sucks as much dick as hers does.

    Then again she’s a full blown dyke so maybe it’s just horrible!?

    I’m sorry to the gay community, I don’t hate/discriminate against you. I REALLY HATE OPRAH.

  • JGo555

    Arrrgh! Stop with the shoe talk! Am I the only female that doesn’t give a rat’s ass about shoes or shopping in general!?

    I do suffer from a lotions & body washes affliction that makes me hoard 20-25 of these bottles for a period of 3 months in which I then battle it by using them all. Then I have to do it all again.

    It’s a vicious cycle that I can’t stop!!! I NEED HELP!

  • CT

    Like like like

  • kimbev69

    I am 5ft 1 and have size 8 1/2 feet it sucks big feet, big mouth and big boobs ugh

  • kimbev69

    I used to like shoes but after two knee surgeries i can only wear flats

  • CT

    That’s me and deep conditioners. I had my hair totally fucked about 6 months ago because of a Keratin treatment and I’m constantly buying deep conditioners. My spouse uses some crap ass shampoo he got at a hotel last business trip – whatever he brings home and I have 6 to 8 tubs of deep conditioners in the shower.

  • buhbam

    So, I have cancer.  Does that mean I can get people to give me money too?  Wonder what kind of proof I’ll need to provide…

  • CT

    I have a feeling after all of the shoe talk Morbid is wishing he skipped this story for a whole reason.

  • curiousalways

    boys love the big boobs!!  :)

  • kimbev69

    Not if u are the one carrying those suckers but at least my big feet keep me from fallin over face first

  • Lena60

    So …your a hobbit?

  • LeaveMeBe

    OMG Lena! You’re terrible! LOL! She didn’t say her feet were hairy.

  • malq

    One person was so moved by her story, she pitched in a few hundred dollars she did not have.
    While I question the wisdom of that and the validity of anything on the internet, many can’t help but to bond after a few thousand posts. lol  Actually it was a good lesson in humanity. Most are good and a small % are evil. Hard to remember after reading this shit every day, but this is the bowels of depravity and that makes Morbid the King of Shit, like his old avatar used to say..

  • malq

    Poor bastard, all he wants is a true crime site and he ends up with a Pampered Chef party.

  • kimbev69

    Haha im actually a hermit but hobbit sounds right lol thanks lena

    No JGo, you are not alone. I am not a shoe whore and I don’t like shopping. But I have a candle fetish. :)

  • http://twitter.com/AngelsMom0806 Angels Mom

    I am literally in tears laughing at “dozens of dollars”. 

  • http://twitter.com/AngelsMom0806 Angels Mom

    The sad thing is that if it truly happens to another member here most people won’t believe them. That trust has been broken for all future people.

  • http://twitter.com/AngelsMom0806 Angels Mom

    My ex is a liar like that…not the panty sniffer…the other one. 

  • malq

    You are the exception to the universe!

  • malq

    Good point, but I think by now there is an awareness of who is who. So I would not be surprised if there was an outpouring of help again,  especially in the forums where people tend to be more open about their lives.  We should have saw that coming. I was inexperienced to forums and the psychology of people getting to know each other on line.
    It turns out, one person suggests helping and everyone blindly jumps on the bandwagon.  40 people could not be wrong,right?

  • Zazen

    Glad to know I’m succeeding at something.

  • Pyncky

    What’s the back story about DD ers being scammed. anyone know?
     

  • Chinchillazilla

    I have that disease, but with nail polish.

  • Chinchillazilla

    I have like six pairs of shoes total. On the rare occasion I need something other than those, I just borrow them from someone else. I find shoes boring as hell.

  • hicusdicus

     The internet is the worlds greatest venue for liars.

  • JGo555

    I had a candle fetish too, but I got cured after owning pet parrots & children. The candle & children don’t mix for obvious reasons but the smell from sprays, teflon, harsh cleaning chemicals, candles & plug ins for scent are actually bad for the birds so now my house can smell of what I cook but not like Black cherry or cinnamon & apples… Maybe that’s why I bake stuff so much; to make the house smell like sugar cookies or fresh bread.

    Now I’m gonna do some introspection, if you excuse me please.

  • DangerousKindOfSnark

    Not a Pampered Chef party, uggg. This is important shit.

  • DangerousKindOfSnark

    I don’t know. I think there are some people on here I would probably help.

    Hooray! Oprah hate.

    OMG, how did I not know of this site?   I think I’m upset.
