A woman allegedly faked cancer to gain £45,000 from well-wishers which she then spent on foreign holidays. A British woman from Broadstairs town who also has a baby allegedly created a GoFundMe page acted as a cancer victim with a fake photo of her lying in a hospital bed. Nicole Elkabbass, 41 is accused of fraudulently accepting £45,350 in donations and spending it in gambling and tours. Prosecutor Ben Irwin described how the page ‘Nicole needs our help treatments’, seemingly written by her mother, described Elkabbass as a “beautiful daughter” and “loving mum” who was “recently diagnosed”. It came with a photo portraying Elkabbass as frail, laying on her back in a hospital bed under a blanket, eyes closed and mouth open. But the picture was actually taken after she had an operation to remove her gallbladder, the court heard. However, Nicole Elkabbass denied the allegations.
