The blogger who cheated Apple, forced to pay $ 410,000

The blogger who invented a story of overcoming how he had beaten brain cancer, cheating Apple (and practically everyone), must pay $ 410,000.
Belle Gibson is an Australian girl who defined herself as a fighter when fighting a supposed brain cancer thanks to a miraculous diet created by herself.
Its history moved Apple, where it began to collaborate with them on a large scale, to such an extent that Apple was about to promote its own app in the launch of the Apple Watch.

This girl had a great impact for her story of improvement, where she even wrote a book, published an app and a blog . All with great success thanks to the media and the unconditional support of Apple.
Belle Gibson revealed herself in an interview, stating that the medical tests were perhaps wrong . Suspicions about his deception quickly confirmed.
Apple was supporting it until the last moment thanks to internal contacts that could go beyond a professional relationship. You can read all his story about his scam in this post.
At first, the state of Victoria denounced it with a penalty of 1.1 million dollars, finally, a judge forces it to pay 410,000 dollars broken down as follows:
  • $ 90,000 of sales and advertising generated through the 'The Whole Pantry' app.
  • $ 50,000 for not donating the money obtained through the app.
  • $ 30,000 for not donating the money raised through an event on Mother's Day in 2014.
  • 90,000 for not donating other company benefits.
  • 150,000 for telling the family of Joshua Schwarz, a child suffering from incurable brain cancer, who would give them 100% of the profits made through the app.
Apple did not want to make statements when they stopped working with this blogger , they simply said at the time that they no longer maintained any kind of relationship with her.
