@matttissley a fake account pretending to have cancer and spamming celebs for attention

Update: after lots of tweets from angry people not believing him, “Matt” tweeted on July 8 that he was “cancer free”. The whole account has been nothing but lies all along who knows what the person running the account is planning to do now.

There is an account on Twitter that has 6,000 followers the person running it is pretending to be a young boy with cancer. The account gets lots of attention, RT’s and favorites.

Here is how the person running it is able to trick 1000’s of people.

“He” (we have no idea who is actually behind the account) was using pictures of real little boys who had cancer and were bald.

This was the picture “he” was using for a while. The real boy live in Australia.
When he was “caught” this was his reply

20130704-152657.jpg

He claimed that his family met this boy but the real child’s family has never met anyone from this fakers family and doesn’t like knowing that their picture was used .. Misused in this way

He then changed his pic to this boy:

Well, the problem with using this pic is, this young man passed away at the age of 13.

He has now changed his pic to a yellow ribbon.

The other thing this account does is only follow verified accounts. All the people he follows are public figures like celebrities and sports figures and media sites!

So what this person does is log on to twitter a few times a day, check which verified accounts are tweeting and then he spams them with the same message.

He claims he “wants to share his story” the way to do that would be a website or blog .. He has neither.

This “share his story” is a trick to get celebs, sports people to follow him.

He asks them to follow him so he can DM his story, people can only DM each other if they follow each other.

I have actually tweeted with people he’s tricked and found out he never DMs people “his story” or emails them if they give him they email.

All he cares about is the attention and followers.

I hope this explains this crazy account! My aunt died of cancer last year and I have a friend who is VERY sick.

A sad story of @gaystraightlive someone using twitter to lie about having cancer 

Go straight to the bottom for PROOF this was a hoax! 

The day after this was written “Jenny” deleted her Twitter account without any explanation.

People suffer from terrible diseases and each one of us has probably lost someone in our life to cancer or another life threatening illness. Personally, my aunt is very
Ill with cancer. Sometimes the treatment is worse than the disease. She has neuropathy from her chemotherapy, she’s bald, she’s sad and scared. Sometimes she’s too sick for chemotherapy and then she’s scared the cancer will grow faster.

Sometimes people on Twitter lie about having a disease, getting injured or being suicidal only to get attention and followers! Most times it’s easy to spot posers! They make mistakes like posting a pic from Google Images or lying and getting caught.

Lately, there has been a person saying she was sick and everyone including my mom and I believed her. Now we are doubting it. We even have Twitter friends who got suspicious too.

This person has been tweeting two celebs a LOT. Both celebs are super sweet and really worried about her.

This person has done a lot of research and is using big technical words about her condition but there are some problems and it’s getting harder to believe her.

One thing we noticed a LOT is her story changes quickly

I know that’s a small thing — hey how old are you? when’s your birthday ?? Oh In a couple of months — then it’s in 2 weeks —

But her “mom” tweeted this with just minutes in between

20120201-234128.jpg

20120201-234322.jpg

Here’s another example

Here’s another example:

How do things change so fast??

Also she had scans and ONE hour later had surgery to removed a tumor from behind her heart

20120201-234901.jpg

20120201-234935.jpg

Also the day she had surgery to remove a tumor from behind her heart she was trying to do a tiny chat. One day her mom tweeted this pic:

20120201-235937.jpg

Most people, if they are that sick would be in a hospital gown, they would have heart monitors, a breathing tube, they would be look awful!!

This pic shows a younger girl check out the items by her ..

20120202-000152.jpg

I see a coloring book and light chasers like you get at the Disney Store! Not things a 14 yr old girl would have. Also it looks like they were Christmas gifts.
Anyway odd picture!

The next day she played cards with a nurse And a girl on the ward and tweeted this pic

Update a follower reading this found this pic on a Tumbler Account!! With a caption Like Missing You! Look at the end of this post for proof it originally was on a Tumblr Post

20120202-000354.jpg

This is odd to be up and around other patients a few days after surgery.

After the mom tweeted that Jenny was terminal and would stop therapy and go home to die “mom” tweeted this

20120202-000932.jpg

That’s a strange reaction to finding out you will die soon. I would think you would have lots of other things to cry about!

The night she find out she was terminally I’ll mom posted this

20120202-001212.jpg

However, Jenny got on Twitter and tweeted for about 6 hrs straight and even hosted a tiny chat

20120202-001750.jpg

Finally people were getting so concerned because so many of us were so worried about her a few people actually called the hospital!

20120202-001957.jpg

20120202-002015.jpg

They live in Sugarland Texas but say they are at the St Jude’s in Tennessee

20120202-002107.jpg
We actually expected the hospital to say “We can’t give out that information” or “that’s confidential” but the nurses were very kind and tried to find Jenny for them.

She posted a link to FaceBook pages that said here’s us. There were tons of pics of a blond girl and blond mom. When. I said “you have changed and it looks like Jen was very loved,” the “mom” said ” oh that’s my sister and my niece” !?!?

Also, the “mom” or “Jen” keeps RTing where the prayers are coming from Amy Tweet that the Aloha State is praying for you or prayers from Spain.
She also kinda brags at how Many RTs. her pics get and how many followers she has — ” haha I was hoping for one RT but I got 40!” “I just realized I don’t have 300 followers anymore!” If someone was getting followers and RTs because of dying it wouldn’t really make them happy.

I know this isn’t absolute proof but my aunt loved FaceBook but hasn’t logged on in a long time. When you are told you are dying most people don’t jump on Twitter. They talk to friends, pray, cry. It’s up to you to believe her or not. I think it’s very suspicious.
There are other things but I think these are the biggest things that are red flags!
There just isn’t proof of a 14 yr old girl who matches the profile pic being in St Judes Hosp.

Here’s another example of changing stories I had to add here. My app make added pics go to the end once a decision like putting a kid in isolation is made it’s unlikely to change in 10 minutes.

20120202-063914.jpg

Here is the pic she used! It is a pic of a 10 yr old girl who really was sick and came home to die!!
