A New York woman was indicted Wednesday on charges that she scammed her family and local businesses out of thousands of dollars by claiming to have cancer. The district attorney said she used the money she collected to support a h**oin addiction.
Brittany Ozarowski, 21, of Long Island, allegedly scammed donors for at least 13 months, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office. She collected money from donation jars at small businesses and fundraising events created in her name.
She allegedly even conned her family and set up a website, brittanyozarowski.com, which claimed she had bone, brain, ovarian, stomach and thyroid cancer, and that “treatments are about $33,000 each day.”
“There was no cancer, there was no chemotherapy, there was no radiation,” said Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota. “The only thing that there was, was drugs and more drugs.”
