Disgraceful Alabama resident, Jennifer Flynn Cataldo, faces 25 years in jail for faking terminal cancer.

Jennifer Flynn Cataldo

Jennifer Flynn Cataldo lied to friends and family about having terminal cancer in order to receive sympathy donations via GoFundMe but was found out and has now been sentenced to 25 years in jail for her audacious crime. Cataldo is a prime example of the low life’s who cheat the system any way they can in order to freeload. Sounds like a democrat to me.

Via Fox News:

Jennifer Flynn Cataldo, who collected a total of $264,163 in checks and cash from donors, falsely portrayed she had terminal cancer from 2014 to May 2017, WHNT reported. One of the two GoFundMe accounts that the 37-year-old benefitted from was titled, “Mom has Terminal Cancer Disney Trip,” and had a goal of $4,000.

Cataldo pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud and one count of bank fraud, and was sentenced to 25 years behind bars by U.S. District Judge Virginia Hopkins. She was also ordered to pay restitution to her victims.

“This defendant’s conduct was reprehensible,” U.S. Attorney Jay E. Town said, according to WHNT. “For more than two years she engaged in an elaborate scheme that preyed upon the sympathy and generosity of her friends and family. Not only did she fake cancer to take their money, she used her minor child as part of her ruse and allowed the child to believe his mother was dying. She has earned every nickel of her punishment.”


Lying about having terminal cancer for any reason is horrendous considering the people who actual suffer from the incurable disease. This woman is NOT going to be very popular in jail that’s for sure.
