Ashley Bemis from California is accused of using a massive wildfire to scam donors out of thousands of dollars in cash and supplies. Police say Ashley Bemis pretended online that she had a firefighter husband.
She collected $11,000 in cash and supplies under the ruse that they would go to fire crews, according to police. But investigators say instead she kept the cash and re-sold the supplies. Police say this isn’t the first time Bemis has played on people’s sympathies to scam them. She allegedly admitted to faking a pregnancy to receive baby shower gifts.
