Sarah A. Delashmit, age 35, was indicted for committing various types of fraud including identity theft.
According to the FBI press release associated with the case, “Delashmit is accused of falsely claiming she had breast cancer and genetic disorders to receive financial assistance and other benefits.”
These benefits included attending Camp Summit, a nonprofit camp for disabled individuals. Despite her complete ability to walk, Delashmit pretended to require assistance in her daily activities, confining herself to a wheelchair. Delashmit also claimed to be a breast cancer survivor in order to receive donations and a trip through a non-profit organization called Young Survival Coalition. In addition to her alleged lies about her health, Delashmit is accused of lying to businesses in order receive a $4,499 triathlon bicycle.
Despite the accusations, Delashmit will be considered innocent until proven guilty. Regardless of the outcome of her approaching trial, this case stands as a reminder that there are people that lie in order to reap the rewards of the innocent kindness of others. The programs that Delashmit allegedly conned were organized to provide care and service to those in need. It is heartbreaking to think that someone might choose to abuse those services.
