Arizona woman fakes cancer for breast implants

MESA, Ariz. -- Police say a woman pretended to have breast cancer so she could get implants.

The 27-year-old is accused of fraud and theft. Police say the woman used the money she raised in a website scheme for breast implants.   

On the fundraising website it reads 'Jami has breast cancer and no insurance'.

Police say she raised $8,000 for a double mastectomy she didn't need.

Police caught on to the imposter when she declined a doctor's offer to operate on her breast cancer.
