Brittany Ozarowski, 21, was indicted in Long Island, N.Y. on charges she faked having cancer so she could receive donations to support her heroin addiction. According to documents unsealed on April, 10, 2013, Ozarowski left donor jars at Nassau and Suffolk county businesses and hit up supermarket shoppers for money. Ozarowski even established a PayPal account and a website with a banner that pleaded, "Help Save My Life." Flyers claimed that Ozarowski had ovarian, stomach, bone or brain cancer and had "few options left." Undated booking photo of Brittany Ozarowski
