Heinous Scams

Funny, she didn't apologize to the daughter...

URBANA, Ohio - A woman who faked her daughter's leukemia to gain thousands of dollars in donations was sentenced to prison Wednesday along with her husband. Teresa Milbrandt was sentenced to 6 1/2 years and Robert Milbrandt received four years and 11 months.

Teresa Milbrandt shaved her daughter's hair and gave her sleeping pills to make it appear she was receiving chemotherapy, made her wear a protective mask and put her in counseling to prepare for death, police said. Authorities said the Milbrandts fooled 65 people and businesses into donating an estimated $31,000 for their daughter's treatment.

"I'm truly sorry for the pain I've inflicted on each and every one," she said. "I only pray someday you can forgive me."

What I hate are scams that take advantage of your good side, as opposed to the old style scams like the pigeon drop that take advantage of your bad. And this was one that clearly took advantage of people's generosity.

See, here is a good reason for Child Protective Services to exist. Take the child away and put her in a good family.

Take the mom away and put her with a good prison family.
