This Woman's Engagement Scam Will Make You Sick

Posted by Nicole Fabian-Weber

engagement ringIf you don't feel like being infuriated, pissed, and downright disgusted, you really should stop reading now. You do? Okay, here we go.

Caroline Bull told her boyfriend, Luke Stringer, that she had incurable cervical cancer and only had six months to live. She also said that it was her last wish to walk down the aisle with him. So, what did helplessly heart-broken Stringer do? He immediately dropped to one knee and asked her for his hand in marriage. Elaborate wedding arrangements, lavish lobster dinners, and over $6,000 for cancer research later, he found out she made the whole thing up.

But it doesn't stop there.

This disgusting excuse for a human being -- and I hate to even call her human -- went so far as to ask her fiance for things like a certain song be played at her funeral -- and for him to get some of the lyrics tattooed on his arm. (He did.) She also requested that the men wear pink ties with white shirts at her wedding, and pink ties with black shirts at her funeral. Bull even went as far as to tell her fiance that she was being flown to Brussels by helicopter for surgery, complete with giving him a nurse's phone number and all. Stringer says:

I got texts from this nurse saying Caroline had almost died on the operating table and her prayers were with us. I was distraught. I assume now it was just Caroline texting me.

The jig was up when her roommate noticed that all the checks made out to Cancer Research were still at the house, but the cash -- and Caroline -- were missing. Eventually, she was found and arrested. 

I mean, I can't -- I don't even know what to say. As someone who has lost someone very dear to them to cancer, I really don't know if I could think of something worse. It's unbelievable that someone could go through with this. I don't know how you wouldn't die of guilt in the process.

We all know that, unfortunately, this isn't the first time someone has lied about being sick. Some may say it's a mental illness, I say that's a crock -- these people are selfish, greedy, and completely lack any compassion for any other living thing (I guess, maybe it is a disease -- it's called being a sociopath.). People who pull these stunts tend to do so for sympathy and attention, but occasionally, it's just for cold hard cash.

I hope this Caroline Bull is locked up for the rest of her life. And even then, I'm not sure if she'll realize the magnitude of such an elaborate lie. Dealing with a loved one being ill is one of the most tramatizing, depressing things anyone could ever go through. And to cause all that pain for a few extra bucks? I hope she never sees the light of day again.

What do you think of this woman -- and others -- lying about being sick?

 She really must have a pyschiatric problem.....I mean she had to have been thinking of it for a long time before she actually told him.  Her plan was so elaborate....  just bizarre and sad.  That poor man.

 I think she needs medical help.  Its sad that this is what she thought was appropriate.  Poor guy.

I have to share that I did run into someone like this. Someone who lied a lot and told us she was very sick. She lied and told us she was a mother with little kids whose husband was barely home. That she had no one to help. She befriended us and then she got found out. It was horrible and hurtful to many many people.

These types of people discust me.

 People are sick and need help.  She certainly has something wrong in the head.  I feel bad for the guy she sucker punched

by Janita on Mar. 28, 2011 at 10:15 PM

She is mental unstable.  She needs help. I feel sorry for the people that she hurt.

 Duh, if the person you love has cancer you go to the doctor with them.

 Though she is sick and what she did was disgusting, I agree with this. Why didn't he go with her? How did he not know she was lying??
