A Galloway woman is charged with theft by deception and harassment after she allegedly took advantage of an Egg Harbor Township family by pretending she was terminally ill, police said.
Kiley White, 26, was on her way back to the victim’s residence Thursday, when she was arrested, Sgt. Cherie Burgan said.
White had spent about five weeks staying at the home.
She allegedly used similar tactics in the past in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania, although she has never been charged with a crime, according to the report.
She has preyed on the sympathy and compassion of others, receiving services and goods from those victims whom she scammed, Burgan said.
White also pretended to be other people, including her own hospice nurse, according to the investigation.
The case is being investigated by Egg Harbor Township Police Detective Robert Harte of the Criminal Investigations Division. Any additional information can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
