Abbey Arthur preyed on people’s sympathies with a fake cancer scam and managed to collect around 10k in donations, using a few different fundraising sites. On February 2018 Drama Llama was notified anonymously about Abbey when something seemed fishy about her story. Several people got involved and discovered that the images that she used as her own were indeed stolen from Google and a blog that belonged to a woman named Emily Agnew. Sadly, Emily passed away a few years ago. When confronted, Abbey continued to lie and even produced a fake letter from a doctor at a cancer center in Georgia, as well as CT scan images that actually belonged to an elderly woman in Saudi Arabia. After being confronted further, Abbey became very angry, insisting that she was telling the truth. However, she soon blocked people and locked her Twitter account. Eventually she ended up changing her Twitter handle several times in an attempt to hide from her accusers. What happened next was unbelievable. She faked her own death. Abbey began tweeting from her locked account, claiming that she was her sister, Taylor O’Donnell. Taylor claimed that she found Abbey dead on the floor of her apartment with an empty Xanax bottle next to her. Things only got crazier from there. Taylor posted ANOTHER letter from Abbey’s “doctor” at the cancer center. The “doctor” said that he wasn’t sure whether Abbey died from complications after surgery or from an overdose of Xanax. He then stated that he would contact Abbey’s “sister” Taylor, pending an autopsy report. After Abbey tweeted several times from her account, claiming to be her sister, she created an account for Taylor. She even continued to tweet as her sister after Albany PD went to her apartment to do a well check and it was confirmed that Abbey was “alive and well.” Taylor went on to warn people that if Twitter and it’s users continued to spread lies about her sister, that she would take legal action. After all...it’s the internet’s fault that her sister Abbey is dead…. Local law enforcement is aware of this developing situation and an investigation is pending. Abbey has had charges against her in the past including DUI’s and computer trespass. She is currently on probation and her probation officer is being notified. It is our belief that this entire story was created to pay her legal fees. Hopefully justice will be served, for the people that donated to her fake cancer scam fundraisers and for Emily Agnew.
