A look ahead: Mid-South woman invents sick kids to collects donations

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - The blogs are sweet. Touching, heartfelt pleas from families of pediatric cancer patients, asking for a few dollars to help a daughter with leukemia or a little girl with a brain tumor.

They're all fake – and a Memphis woman is behind them.

Chief Consumer Investigator Andy Wise and a national cancer hoax whistle-blower blow up this heart-tugging money grab.

When Andy tracks down the woman, things get even more interesting – you might even feel sorry for her. We'd feel more sorry if you gave your money under false pretenses.

That's why Andy's protecting your donation dollar in his investigation of a cancer hoax on The Investigators, tonight on Action News 5 at 10.
