Fake Cancer Scam

A Texas prom queen who raised more than $17,000 after telling classmates she was dying of cancer was arrested and charged with theft-by-deception.

Angie Gomez, 19, told her family, friends and fiance in January 2011 that she had six months to live after battling leukemia since childhood.

The Horizon City teen set up her own charity foundation, called "Achieve the Dream," and raised $17,000 from fundraisers, checks, gift cards and in-kind donations, the El Paso Times reported.

Gomez claimed that her condition caused her to miss her senior prom, and so Da Vinci High School held another in her honor in June 2011 -- the same month police received a complaint that Gomez did not appear to be ill.
