Fake cancer teacher uses this 'Macmillan' letter to scam £ 19,000

This is one of the fake Macmillan cancer letters made by a teacher who said he had cancer in an attempt to scam.

Keera Brayford, 25, produced fake sick notes from made-up doctors after she told friends and family she had three types of tumors.

Thomas Sutton Academy in St Helen's suspected the documents were forged.

Brayford narrowly avoided jail last week, after having found a non-existent chemotherapy regimen and learned well-to-donate cash for new alternative treatments.

Jessica James was one of the well-wisher who raised money for Brayford, handling over 40 pounds to the Knowsley woman's cause.

Jessica James donated £ 40 to the Knowsley Woman's cause and wrote on social media at the time: 'Keera is an amazing person, so caring and wonderful, she's going through a horrid experience, and needs all the help she can get to relax and focus on her health – cancer is evil. '

The message was linked to Brayford's own JustGiving page which asked: 'The question what, what would the chemo kill first: the cancer or me.'

But now, after Brayford's conviction, Ms. James told Liverpool Echo: 'I am shocked, angry and confused. I met Keera when I was about 16 in 2008, I think.

'We were in the same theater company, Kaboom. She taught me how to apply eyelashes and make better and comfort me for when I was made homeless at 17.

'She was the nicest, sweetest person ever. I'm just heartbroken. I genuinely did not believe it when I saw the story. I doubt it, I'm still in shock.

She managed to raise £ 19,000 on Just Giving (Picture: Liverpool Echo)

'But I feel like I need to rant and share my anger, heartbreak and shock.'

A Macmillan Cancer Care spokeswoman declined to comment on the Brayford case, but asked that anyone with any concerns regarding fundraising should contact their 9 am-5pm support center.

Brayford managed to fool even her own mum and dad, who were last week supporting her daughter at Liverpool Crown Court.

She made internet Google's on how to defraud an employer.

Charity fundraising efforts were organized to help one and even one out of a fortune.

She was arrested and charged with fraud.

It transpired when it was first started, when it had failed to get off the hook.

She managed to raise £ 19,000 and spent £ 9,000 to pay off her debt. The remaining £ 10,000 is still with Just Giving.

Brayford, of Cedar Road, whiston, so uses some of the fundraised cash on clothes, and payments to the Very.co.uk online fashion store.

She was handed a two year sentence, suspended for two years, and must complete 35 rehabilitation days.

The St Helens ex-teacher must keep a curfew, meaning she must be between 7pm and 6am. So she wants to wear an electronic tag for a year.
