Public Prosecutor probing Albufeira woman who faked cancer for cash


The Public Prosecutor is reportedly looking into the case of a woman from Albufeira, who allegedly falsely claimed to have cancer to raise money. 

The move comes after several newspapers reported the purported scam. According to Sul Informação, the 32-year-old woman was exposed last week after being diagnosed with the mental illness Münchausen syndrome by a Lisbon hospital.
