Amey Molloy: Bombing Fund Fraudster Allegedly Got $8,000

By    |   Thursday, 15 Jan 2015 08:54 AM

A Maine woman has been charged with collecting a fraudulent $8,000 payment from the fund for Boston Marathon bombing victims and authorities said she attempted to collect another $12,500.

The Associated Press reported the Massachusetts Attorney General's Office as saying 49-year-old Amey Molloy of Portland was arrested in Maine on Wednesday morning on a fugitive warrant and charged with larceny over $250 and attempted larceny.

Attorney General Martha Coakley said Molloy defrauded The One Fund Boston by "falsely claiming she had been injured at the Boston Marathon bombing."

The One Fund issued Molloy $8,000 after she claimed she had undergone foot surgery due to an injury sustained during the 2013 bombing. Coakley says an investigation revealed Molloy was not treated for any bombing-related injuries.

Molloy is being held at Cumberland County Jail. It wasn't immediately clear if she had an attorney.
