At least she is being prosecuted for fraud. People need to face consequences for their actions when they go far beyond just bad taste and poor etiquette and enter in to criminal behaviour.

Wow! I agree with the people quoted in the article who said she must have mental health issues.

Oh, yeah, she’s mental. After serving prison time for fraud, which is totally what she did, they should give her community service helping those who really have cancer so she can see why what she did is so disgusting.
Did she believe no one would ever find out??
Worked with a girl who faked a pregnancy so her BF would marry her. It completely backfired and he married someone else. She continued with the fake pregnancy, having showers, etc. She even took maternity leave. Someone called to check on her and she said they were going to have to do a c-section but there were too many babies in the nursery so they were going to wait until a few had been discharged. 3 weeks later, when no baby was born, someone called the house and talked to her father, asking about the baby and what was happening. Her dad said “What baby? Kim isn’t pregnant”. She ended up claiming she had been pregnant but miscarried at 6 mos and was afraid to tell everyone so she was going to try to find a new job while she was on “maternity leave”.

It was a clue when she claimed the C-section being held off because the nursery was “too full”. I have never, ever heard of that happening.

Yes, when she told that, I KNEW she lying. Other people were still giving her the benefit of the doubt.

I actually got deferred for an induction for that reason, but they only deferred me for 12 hours. Instead of coming in at 8 p.m. they told me to come in at 8 the next morning.

Ok, I stand corrected. I am surprised that a hospital would do that. But as you pointed out, they only deferred you for 12 hours, not days as “Kim” tried to make us all believe.
I still have a lot of anger towards this woman for all the lying and manipulative things she did. She had a baby shower and had people bringing her things for the baby right up to the day she went out on maternity leave.
One older lady, Catherine, was working with us and we all knew it was hard on her- her husband had passed on, her only child was in the military across the country, she had terrible arthritis and the work we were doing was not the easiest – she could not afford to stop working even though she was over 65. Precious Moments themed baby items were big at the time and this lady spent months making this girl a Precious Moments hand sitched baby quilt because Kim liked them so much. If you could have seen the look on Catherine’s face when she realized we had all been duped by Kim… it would have broken your heart.
The most vile part of this- another lady in our department had a miscarriage at 5 months- she started bleeding and I mean pouring blood at work one night and we called the ambulance. She returned to work about 2 weeks later and I know it wasn’t on purpose, but it happened to be the night they had the baby shower for Kim. She walked in the break room, saw the decorations and cake, turned around and went to her car to eat her supper. Kim actually made the comment that she “needed to get over it. People have miscarriages all the time”. I swear I wanted to beat the heck out of her and the only thing that stopped me was the fact she was supposedly pregnant. And then to add insult to injury, she used miscarriage as the excuse for why she wasn’t pregnant anymore. Her supposed miscarriage would have about 2 months before the shower. IF she had REALLY had a miscarriage, I don’t think she would have been able to say such a cruel and heartless thing.
Errrrr- just thinking about this person makes my blood boil.

I experienced something kind of similar to Hemi with a former workmate. Except this girl (late teens, freshly married) kept claiming pregnancy then miscarriage; then pregnany then misscarriage.
There would a short period of excitement and attention over the pregnancy announcement. Once that wore off she’d announce that she’s suffered a misscarriage the night before. Again there’d be a flurry of attention. Then it would die down. A week or two later it was “Guess what? I’m pregnant again!!” Cue the excitement and attention…..things would quieten and return to normal. Sure enough workmate would turn up to work, look dejected and wait for someone to notice. “oh I just had a misscarriage last night, yeah another one, yeah I lost the baby”. Cue flurry of attention and fussing from workmates…rinse and repeat.
Call me hard-hearted and cynical but I soon started smelling a rat. Is it physically possible for a person to fall pregnant miscarry within a month then be pregnant yet again within a month, over and over again, without suffering physical and psychological/emotional effects??

She was probably never pregnant, and every time she had her cycle she decided that it was time for more attention from the caring folks at work. :major side-eye: Either that or she didn’t know how to work a pregnancy test.

Frankly, I vote to keep her in jail, and find some actual adults to raise those two children. My goodness.

This was a very strange thing to do, she may need help but she still committed fruad.

@ Hemi, that is very strange too. If she was pregnant there will be medical records about her pregnancy and her miscarriage. If she went on maternity leave and she wasn’t pregnant in the first place then isn’t that fraud?

Reply

Hemi April 12, 2012 at 9:53 am

Yes, I do believe that “Kim” committed fraud, too. Plus, we had paid maternity leave. After all of this, the facility manager let her COME BACK TO WORK!!! She only stayed a few days. I think she expected sympathy but only got frosty looks and silence.

She’s luck she didn’t go to prision.

I’d still put this as second worst gimme pigs; the “Priceless wedding” scores as top in my list! Though the “priceless” couple would receive some points for their “honesty” I suppose :P.

R U FREAKING KIDDING ME? BAD ENOUGH SHE CLAIMED THAT SHE HAD CANCER TO GET THIS GUY TO MARRY HER, BUT TO USE OTHERS SERVICES FREE? I HOPE SHE DOES HER TIME IN JAIL. HEMI, I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT GIRL AT YOUR JOB DID SOMETHING THAT WAS EVEN WORSE. SHE IS A VILE HUMAN BEING, JUST LIKE THIS ONE IS. I JUST GOT MARRIED ABOUT A MONTH AGO TO MY BF OF FIVE YEARS. AND WE STRUGGLED WITH THE MONEY FOR IT, BUT I WOULD NEVER DO SOMETHING THIS VILE, FOR A FREE WEDDING. THE WEDDING THAT I HAD WAS SMALL BUT AMAZING. I CAN’T BELEIVE THIS ZILLA WANTED THE HUGE O NE SO BAD, SHE DID THIS. MAY SHE ROAST FOREVER IN EHELL!

She’s not mental, she’s a plain ol’ con artist with a heart of ice.

Thank you. This is so right – she ran a con and was caught for it. Sadly, this seems to be a “thing.” This woman isn’t unusual in the slightest.

A former friend of my mother’s did this once. She called my mother (who was recovering from cancer herself), said she had been diagnosed with breast cancer and didn’t any money. My mother gave her a few hundred dollars. She found out awhile later that the woman didn’t have cancer and had done this to several other people. I found it particularly reprehensible that she picked a woman who had been recovering from cancer to con.

Hopefully the con artist will never be struck by cancer. No one will believe her, and even if they did, very few would be willing to go out of their way to help her.

It is certainly possible that she is mentally ill. Perhaps she is a form of a sociopath and thinks that, if you are so stupid as to believe whatever she says, it’s proof that she is smarter than you are and you deserve to be taken for whatever you’ve got.

An administrator at our school, a very nice man, asked some of us teachers to come over and help him paint his house. When I asked for something to drink, it being a hot day in South Florida, I was pointed to the garden hose.

His wife came by to laugh at us for painting her house while she relaxed in air conditioning. Why, she just couldn’t believe we were that stupid! We worked the entire day with nothing to eat and nothing to drink except water from the hose.

Cat:

I vote for ‘sociopath’. I have mental health issues myself that I manage. Granted, there are those with mental health disorders that they don’t ‘manage’, but honestly, some people are just plain jerks or in this case – predatory.

Why didn’t the admin provide you with drinks and food? Would he if you would’ve asked?

I think I would’ve cut my volunteer work short if pointed to the garden hose while the wife lounged inside her house.

Striving For Sense April 20, 2012 at 10:43 am

Oh, yeah. Let him have a half-painted house. Or provide him with a bill. Either one.

In either case, you should have taken a lunch break, and if he didn’t provide the lunch, then you all go out to eat, and give him a bill.

The garden hose? In Florida? I lived there as a kid, and remember how hot that garden hose water can be. On a few days in summer, the water was scalding.

He was an administrator for your workplace, so that makes things tricky. For a non-boss-type, I’d have walked away after either the first time drinking from the hose, or certainly when the wife laughed at me for being so stupid as to do work for her. However, you don’t want to tick off your administrator. In that case, I’d offer a bill for my services. If he refuses, treat it as refusal to pay you for your regular work, and take it up with his manager.

The laborer is worthy of his hire.

Say that again, about him being a very nice man.

Maybe I’m misreading this, but it looks like she was offered the services, se didn’t ask for them. She certainly should have refused, but she’s less con artist and more opportunist.

i dont know if she is mentally ill, but i think to often we slap that label on someone cause we cant wrap our heads around a mentally healthy person doing such a thing. she is a con artist who i think deserves to be punished, mentally ill or not. if you can go through all the motions of lieing and tricking people, and plan all this out , you are in enough of your right mind to accept the consequences.

Cat May 8, 2012 at 11:25 am

It took me awhile to get back to this one. About the nice administrator with the rude wife and painting his house. He was a very nice person with very bad taste in women. She loved to make him look a fool in front of everyone.

However, chickens do come home to roost. He left her for a young Hispanic man with whom he was truly happy. Having your middle-aged husband leave you for a “trophy wife” and a red sports car is a common occurance. Having him leave you for a younger guy leaves people gaping.

She raised their son who was seeing a psychiatrist before he was old enough to go to school. He is in his thirties now and is still unable to live alone despite having gone to a local college on a athletic scholarship. We wonder what he would have been like if she had not been allowed to raise him.

This thought process relates to credit cards and cars as well as a lesser extent houses as well as other. Anytime you “buy” something before within your budget it you’re making an error. Really you should are in an apartment til you have enough saved up for a house. Buy a cheap car and either get a nicer in a row you’ve saved up the money for it and only is game console when you have all the money by using it and a game or maybe more.
