Woman arrested in Albufeira for ‘faking cancer to raise funds’

A woman living in Albufeira has been arrested for swindling people of money by pretending to have cancer.

The 33-year-old was reportedly arrested by GNR police on orders of the Public Prosecutor, on suspicion of fraud. Health publication Saúde reports she was detained last week after allegedly claiming to have uterus cancer, which had spread to her lungs and bones.
She reportedly raised several thousand euros through campaigns and events, but has been diagnosed by a Lisbon Hospital with Munchhausen disease.

As an interested party involved in this case could you let me know where you received the information about her having Munchausen?
It is my understanding that she was tested & found NOT to have it.
