"The court must rightly deter others from engaging in this sort of conduct, taking advantage of people willing to assist and advance moneys to support somebody in what is perceived to be very tragic or dire consequences."  

"Ms Dickenson has engaged in conduct that tears at the very heartstrings of human nature," he stated.

Dickenson's scam was uncovered when one of her victims discovered photos on her Facebook profile, which made him suspicious about claims of her illness.

But the magistrate did not agree. The court also added that Dickenson would lose her job as a property manager for Little Real Estate in Melbourne.
