Mother of Three's Con Job

Mother 'claimed she was terminally ill with brain tumour, bone cancer AND leukaemia to con well-wishers out of cash'

A young mother-of-three is set to appear in court accused of lying about being terminally ill in order to con well-wishers out of cash.

Terri Edkins claimed to have been diagnosed with a brain tumour, bone cancer and leukaemia and said she had been given just six months to live.

A campaign to raise £25,000 was launched to fly the 23-year-old to the US for revolutionary treatment so she could spend extra time with her husband and children before she died.

The article suggests that her husband may not have been aware that she was making it all up.
