A mother-of-four who faked having cancer in a bid to scam $45,000 for her bogus treatment was only caught after co-workers noticed something unusual in an email.
Former New South Wales cricket development officer Melissa Quinn claimed to have 'inoperable' brain cancer, ovarian cancer and chronic myeloid leukaemia between 2014 and 2016.
The 35-year-old's scam finally came to an end after colleagues noticed a doctor's certificate she had submitted had been sent from a Gmail account, according to 9News.
Her co-workers confronted Quinn and reported the matter to police after the doctor confirmed he had not written the email.
When recently confronted by A Current Affair, the mother-of-four declined to comment or apologise for the scam, claiming she was not allowed to comment.
