SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A West Jordan woman accused of scamming money from the community to fight a deadly disease she never had was arraigned today.

Thirty-three-year-old Tania Clark was arraigned on six felony charges for allegedly accepting more than 16-thousand dollars to fight cancer.

Clark allegedly told everyone she was 62-thousand dollars short of getting a bone marrow transfusion. To back up her story, Clark allegedly produced a letter written by a phony doctor explaining her medical condition.
