The Randolph County Sheriff's Office has charged a second woman in a matter of weeks for faking cancer in order to get money.

The Sheriff's Office said officials at a local recreational club told them that they suspected Hannah Hume was falsely claiming to have kidney cancer after talking to her about her medical bills.

Deputies said the club had planned a June 15 benefit and charity ride in her honor.

Hume was interviewed by Investigators and admitted she did not have kidney cancer. She was arrested Tuesday and charged with a felony for attempting to obtain property by false pretense.

Hume is being held on a $5,000 bond and is expected in court May 13.

Also facing similar charges for pretending to have cancer to scam people out of money is Amy Hammer.

In early March, investigators received a report she was raising money to pay for cancer treatment. The Randolph County Sheriff's Office is still trying to get those donations back.
