MESA, Ariz. (CBS Las Vegas) — A woman has been accused of faking breast cancer to raise money to get implants.

Jami Toler, 27, appeared in a Maricopa County court Thursday on felony fraud and theft charges after allegedly bilking people out of more than $8,000 to get breast implants. She was arrested Wednesday.

KPHO-TV reports that Toler scammed at least 17 people, including family, friends and co-workers.

Toler initially told people that she was diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer last August and said she needed a mastectomy. Toler’s mom, Vickie Schirtzinger, even created a “Jami’s Hope” page on the Give Forward website to help raise money for her daughter’s medical expenses.

“The doctor states that Jami needs a mastectomy,” the fundraising website said. “The doctor is helping as much as he can but the cost is still very expensive. Jami has no insurance and is needing help with the medical expenses.”

Police told Arizona Family that Toler’s scam began to unravel after she turned down an offer from a doctor who would have treated the breast cancer for free.

“Her medical records indicated that there was no breast cancer or anything like that, no issues what so ever,” Sgt. Anthony Landato of the Mesa Police Department told Arizona Family.

Toler got the breast implants in November, according to KPHO.

The judge ordered her to stay away from the 17 victims she allegedly scammed and was told she must wear an ankle bracelet.

    That’s like putting $8,000 headlights on a pinto…

      Priceless! Love it!

      Yes sir!!!!

  3. Crazy_Redneck says:

    It’s like hanging an $8,000 chandelier in a haunted house. Still, nobody wants to be inside it…

    1. Jones says:


      Many men like to run through a haunted house. Just not stay there.

  4. Crazy_Redneck says:

    You’ve heard it said a” handsome, poor man, is a handsome man, but an ugly rich man is a rich man”. Well, an ugly woman with large breasts is still an ugly woman…

      Looks like Hillary loses all around…

    On top of all this, she neglected to claim she was a Native American? She really oughtta move to Massachusetts (when she gets out of jail, I mean) and learn how to game the system properly.

      I got to tell you George – I thought that was really funny. Thanks

    2. SueK says:

      Right, George!

      I’m in MA and I’m sure our very own Pocahontas Warren will be happy to show her the ropes.

    Why not?
    Every member of the Obama Administration is scamming and stealing from the taxpayers.
    So why not this ulgy duckling?

  7. Fed Up says:

    Why are women always involved in these scams. These lowlifes make it difficult for the truly sick to get help from others. I hope her fake tits explode.

    1. Carms says:

      Because men don’t want breast implants? Seriously, if you don’t think men are scamming other people all the time – look at the big scams when it comes to investing – i.e. Ponzi schemes – etc – Women just know how to tug the heart strings for the little money – and honestly $8000 isn’t that much unless it all came from one person.

      1. lou stools says:

        lowlifes of a feather stick together.

      2. WashingtonGettingDesperate says:

        Just another made up story. Unelected officials took over Washington and control over the media after the coup and cover up. Most of the comments online are financed with your tax dollars. Big brother is trying to create the perception of public opinion while burying the truth. They think you can’t handle the truth. Fact of the matter is we have no democracy, president, and freedom of press is an illusion.

        Our next election is shaping up to be as big of a sham as the last. Do you know why Sarah Palin’s bus tour was really canceled? Do you know why she stayed 30 miles away from the second debate and chose the death of Steve Jobs to announce that she’s not running? Know what leaked out? Sarah Palin and Cain aren’t in the race for the same reason, the truth leaked out.

        Search Palins Dirty Little Secret for the biggest cover up in world history before it disappears forever.

        We’re talking breast implants scam and you’re talking about the election?

    When a society gets away from God, this is what happens and worse.

    1. lou stools says:

      yeah, she could have just prayed for better cans, works every time.

    2. Eric Oberhauser says:

      Thank you for the true comment and maybe she WILL get her cancer. God works in strange ways and a little imprecatory prayer will help.

  9. James says:

    Women these days only care about three things. How few clothes they can wear, what is getting shoved inside them, and getting attention. Its sad but its the truth.

    1. Jones says:


      Kim Kardashian and her Black men – some say this makes her a ‘Coal burner’.

  10. Eric Oberhauser says:

    I want at least one swing.

  11. Curious says:

    She now is even a bigger boob!!!

  12. Acchacon says:

    Can I get her contact info? As a cancer patient who’s had a double mastectomy, reconstruction, AND lost my sister last June to BC, I really have some words for her! Especially since I’m still paying my bills!

  13. cheers says:

    Here’s hoping the new tits block that fat face.

    “Toler got the breast implants in November, according to KPHO.

    An ankle bracelet?

    She just got them seven months ago and they’re already sagging that low?

    She should get a refund and pass it on to the victims.

    I recommend taking really small steps.

    Maybe walk backwards…

  15. Gerry says:

    This is an insult to all women who have suffered and died from this horrible disease.

  16. JollyRogering says:

    Latest news is there’s an eight episode “reality” TV show in the making based on this scam.

  17. Robert Jones says:

    CUT ’em off !!!
    …and feed them to my dogs.

  18. kcsparky says:

    A fitting sentence for this spoiled liar is to have the implants removed, at her expense, and she is to payback every cent that she bilked from people…..with interest!! What a low life!!!

    1. Carms says:

      I think you are on to something- it would be an apt sentence – too bad the ACLU would probably come up with a reason we couldn’t do that.

  19. Ken Dixon says:

    “Search Palins Dirty Little Secret for the biggest cover up in world history before it disappears forever.”

    That site is the most bizarre, paranoid and ridiculous thing I’ve ever read.

  20. Not Funny says:

    As someone who just went thru a painful mastectomy w/implant reconstruction, I hope this b*tch burns in hell.

  21. bflat879 says:

    Is this girls name “Julie”. This is what happens when you get dependent and can’t do anything on your own. I’m sure she’ll be voting for Obama so, when these implants harden up on her, she can get “free ones” next time too.

    I really don’t think this should be a crime, much less a felony. If you’re dumb enough to send someone money based on what they say on a website, so be it. It’s not like she was a corporation, she was just a private individual making claims about herself. I doubt this will stick in criminal court. This belongs in civil court, where she can and should be sued by the wronged parties.

      hey dum dum it was her family too that gave also

  24. Spindle Cell Sarcoma says:

    You really make it appear really easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually one thing which I think I would by no means understand. It sort of feels too complex and extremely huge for me. I’m looking forward for your subsequent submit, I will try to get the dangle of it!

    It’s actually a great and helpful piece of info. I’m happy that you shared this helpful info with us. Please keep us up to date like this. Thank you for sharing.
