You know the holiday season brings the best and the worst out of people. It has always amazed me that some people will stoop to the lowest just to cash in on the season.In case you haven't heard a Virginia woman Martha Nicholas was arrested recently for bilking kind hearted folks out of money by falsely claiming she had cancer. The 42 year-old woman even duped her husband and children along the way, claiming she was a four-time cancer patient and participated in multiple cancer fundraisers.

After an investigation by the Hanover County Sheriff's department, the report shows no evidence of any cancer treatment at any medical facility that had been publicly identified by Martha Nicholas during her public appearances and testimonials."

Her attorney said it wasn't a scam and that his client has a mental disorder and he couldn't elaborate more about the situation.

Meanwhile, Nicholas is out on bond and will be arraigned December 16th.

Here's some video from WRIC and YouTube:
