  原標題:為了辦一場夢想的婚禮,她謊稱自己得了癌症求助網友

  擁有一個夢幻的婚禮大概是每個女孩子的夢想,29歲的英國女子卡拉·路易絲·埃文斯也不例外。然而,為了能實現自己的夢想,她卻走上了一條異於常人的路線——謊稱自己得了癌症,求助慈善機構幫她辦婚禮。

  Carla Louise Evans, 29, told the “Wish For A Wedding” charity she had terminal bladder cancer, thyroid cancer along with liver and kidney failure and had just six months to live to get a dream ceremony。

  29歲的卡拉·路易絲·埃文斯告訴名為“婚禮願望”的慈善機構,她患有晚期膀胱癌、甲狀腺癌以及肝腎功能衰竭,只剩下6個月的時間來舉行她夢寐以求的婚禮。

  先來說說“婚禮願望”這家慈善機構。這家機構總部位於英國曼徹斯特,每年會為5至10對(任一方)患上絕症的夫妻提供婚禮資金。埃文斯便是利用了這一點,在社交媒體上發佈她患癌的虛假信息,吸引慈善機構來聯繫她。

  Evans posted on social media claiming she was dying - and was contacted by a volunteer from the charity。

  (2018年10月)埃文斯在社交媒體上發佈消息稱她快死了,然後就收到了慈善機構一名誌願者的聯繫。

  She said: ‘I have recently been told that I am terminally ill so have had to arrange the wedding for short notice。 It would be 15th February。

  她說:“我最近得知自己得了絕症,所以不得不臨時安排婚禮,時間定在了2月15日。”

  ‘My condition could worsen at any time there could be a chance I might not make February and would have to cancel at short notice。’

  “我的病情隨時都可能惡化,也有可能撐不到2月份,最終臨時取消婚禮。”

  Evans claimed she had been married for ten years and the charity offered to organise a vow renewal ceremony worth £15,000。

  埃文斯聲稱她已經結婚十年了,該慈善機構提出要給她組織一場價值15000英鎊的婚約更新典禮。

  They asked for just £500 toward the cost and asked for proof of her diagnosis in return。

  他們只要求埃文斯付500英鎊,並提供她的診斷證明。

  Outlining her diagnosis in her application she wrote that she had been ‘given a time scale of 6 months maximum’ - and even mispelled ‘cancer’ by missing out the letter ‘e’。

  她在申請書中概述了自己的病情,寫道她“醫生預言她最多能再活6個月”,甚至還拚錯了“癌症”一詞,“cancer”里的字母“e”都漏掉了。

  Evans even said she was ‘disgusted’ when she was told some people had tried scamming the charity in the past。

  埃文斯甚至說,當別人告訴她過去曾有人試圖欺騙慈善機構時,她感到“噁心”。

  She said: ‘That’s disgusting!! Makes me angry that people can con other when me and my husband have worked hard all our lives!!‘

  她說:“這太噁心了!讓我很生氣,因為我和我的丈夫一輩子都在努力工作,有人卻可以欺騙別人為生!”

  為了讓自己的故事更可信,她還偽造了紐波特皇家格溫特醫院泌尿科顧問亞當·卡特的簽名,以此證明自己的診斷是真實有效的。而醫生卻完全被蒙在鼓裡,不知道自己什麼時候多出來這麼一位病人。

  不過也正是由於這個偽造的簽名,埃文斯的馬腳才露了出來。

  Evans‘ story unravelled when she forged a letter from an NHS consultant prompting an investigation。 The charity began to question her account and police were contacted。

  埃文斯的故事在她偽造了一封NHS(英國國家醫療體系)顧問的信後被揭穿,最終引來了對她的調查。慈善機構開始質疑她的解釋,並聯繫了警方。

  Lisa Bennett, from the CPS said: ‘Carla Evans callously took advantage of the sympathy afforded to a dying lady to try and con a very small charity out of money。

  來自皇家檢控署的麗莎·貝內特說:“卡拉·埃文斯無情地利用了大家對一位垂死女士的同情心,試圖騙取一個非常小的慈善機構的錢。”

  ‘Our prosecution was able to uncover the lies but the depths she was willing to stoop have caused great hurt and damage to the charity volunteers who believed her and gave up significant time and money to support someone they thought was gravely ill。

  “我們的檢方能夠揭露這些謊言,但她墮落的程度給那些相信她的慈善誌願者造成了巨大的傷害和損害,他們投入大量的時間和金錢來支持一個他們認為病得很重的人。”

  慈善機構負責人瑞秋·柯克伍德(Rachael Kirkwood)說:“顯然她認為我們並不會去核查她的話。我只是不明白怎麼會有人有勇氣做這樣的事情。”

  在受害者陳述中,該機構的誌願者凱倫·霍布斯(Karen Hobbs )說“我覺得我再也無法相信任何人了”。她說自己幫助埃文斯和家人製造難忘的回憶,最終卻發現是一場騙局。

  2018年11月9日,埃文斯承認偽造虛假事實進行欺詐。最終,她被判處一年有期徒刑,因還有兩個年幼的孩子需要照料,所以緩刑15個月,罰款340英鎊,並要求她完成120小時的社區服務。

  不少英國網友卻對這一的判決表示不滿:

  她濫用慈善機構的善意讓我感到噁心。她竟然這麼輕而易舉地逃脫製裁,真讓人震驚。

  還有人說既然她這麼想得癌症,命運之神一定會眷顧她的。

  千萬別蔑視命運。最終自食其果的會是你自己。

  你覺得這樣的判決合理嗎?
