According to court documents, Dickenson scammed $42,000 from her parents' friends and neighbours, which she said she needed for lifesaving treatment in 2012, and medical assistance in Thailand and New Zealand.
Dickenson asked for financial help for "cancer treatment" - but actually put the money she raised towards overseas trips, drugs and alcohol.
She has now pleaded guilty to seven counts of obtaining property by deception.
Money poured in from friends and the 24-year-old spent most of it on holidays and socialising with friends.
"Ms Dickenson has engaged in conduct that tears at the very heartstrings of human nature", he stated.
Melbourne Magistrates' Court was told that one person donated almost £5,500 after he was discharged from hospital following his own cancer treatment.Читайте также: Who Is Braun Strowman's Partner And New RAW Tag-Team Champion Nicholas?
"People's conscious desire to assist has been touched. that's the social trust".
When someone you know is diagnosed with cancer, you'd do - and give -anything to help that person overcome a disease that seems to be more lethal than not.
Dickenson's scam was uncovered when one of her victims discovered photos on her Facebook profile, which made him suspicious about claims of her illness. "These are the people who have worked hard and dug into their own pockets".
An Australian celebrity blogger, Belle Gibson, was fined around $318,000 in 2017, after falsely claiming to have beaten brain cancer.
The 24-year-old was sentenced to three months in jail and an additional 12-month community corrections order, which will require her to do 150 hours of community work and also undergo treatment for mental health issues and substance abuse.
The court said in this case it pronounced the jail term to deter others from engaging in similar conduct.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
