Crime Stories with Nancy Grace: Woman With ‘FOOTBALL-SIZED TUMOR’ Scams Internet til Well-Wishers Spot Fake Tubes!

A 19-year-old Madison Russo (pictured) told the world she was battling pancreatic cancer and had a tumor “the size of a football. It was all a lie.

After Russo bilked donors out of more than $37,000 through her posts on social media, some eagle-eyed medical professionals began questioning her diagnosis. The anonymous witnesses noticed inaccuracies in the photos she posted of herself and contacted authorities.

The witnesses noted that some of her medical equipment and its placement did not look right.
