1) she wanted attention 2) she wanted the money 3) she's in the illuminati and this is some conspiracy about hippies in Texas 4) the doctors made a mistake 5) she was bored and felt like it

^6) She's a con-woman!... My jaw dropped when I read this FML. Faking a serious illness isn't a joke. One day, when she gets an awful disease or cancer, no one will believe her.

Normally I say respect elderly people, but this is an exception. Go to her house, demand the money back.

If you tell everyone else in your family about it and you need the money, they'll take your side and help you get the money from her.

There's been plenty of people who've done things like this before. Look it up. Teachers, health care professionals, normal every day people that you would never guess would pull some crap like this.

I agree with #4, doctors check to see if the patient has cancer... maybe she forged the documents that said she had it. I truly hope you find a way to get your money back. best of luck op :)

I doubt OP asked for documents from her grandmother. "I have cancer and can't pay for the treatments :,(" "Ok, I'll help you... After I see documented proof of your devastating ailment." I doubt OP even considered involving the hospital, because, well, it's grandma.

7) Saying its "fake" so that people stop worrying about her amd that in fact, her cancer is untreatable and is expected to die soon.

This is one of the only times I will actually agree with this. Get a lawyer and go get her. That's so messed up!

I wouldn't consider someone family if they fucked me over like that. If a family member needs money, they can ask.

Well, no one's going to submit an FML that goes, "Today my adorable, 95-year-old Nana knitted me a sweater and gave me a butterscotch candy," are they?

How does one fake cancer? How did she trip all the doctor's tests?! Do we have a modern-day Houdini on our hands? Find out everything on next week's episode.

40 - It's also possible that their magic wands are malfunctioning, so they fall back on the pills to do the curing in the meantime.

I've heard you can fake leukemia by taking mercury in small doses: the symptoms are practically the same :/ And if not law and order lied to me

Well you can tell someone something that's not true. I believe it's commonly referred to as lying.

I'd prefer not to be taken advantage of, even if it's family. Yes, I'd help a family member in need, ONLY when they actually need it and I know that they'd do the same for me if I ever needed it. Who knows, that might've been OP's life savings.

#9 French speaker made a mistake ;) #69 Reading OP's FML, she thought that her Grandma was sick, she learned the truth long after. In the same case I'll spent all my savings too according to my HEART (and I'll surely be angry after knowing the truth). Doing nothing is just like being a selfish b*tch. That's why I said at least she's a good granddaughter <3

I saw a news story about a teacher who faked having cancer for the money people gave her to help pay the bills. There was another news story on a someone who said their little child had cancer and made a Facebook page that everyone passed around the link for on Facebook so they would get tons of donations. So disgusting!

This is by far the shittiest thing I have ever heard of a grandparent doing to their grandchild. Hopefully your reaction when she admitted she had been lying to you will cause her to start trying to possibly reimburse you for your grandiose efforts. So sorry this happened to you!
