We like to poke fun at all the attention seekers out there, but this one has gone WAY TOO FAR!

In 2013, Meaghan Hudson took lying to an extreme level when she convinced her friends and family that she had cancer — and she even took donations!

Under the belief that their daughter was dying, Hudson's parents started a fundraiser for her and raised over $5,000!

But she didn't stop there! Hudson allowed her friends to shave their heads and get tattoos in honor of her fake diagnosis! Hudson's high school friend Chelsea Whild rallied support along with other friends by shaving their heads!

The friends also got tattoos that read "sing on" in reference to a chorus they all sang together as teenagers, a gesture that would have been adorable if Hudson actually had cancer. Whild explained that Meaghan didn't stop them from supporting her:

"It's not like she said, ‘Oh no. Don't get that tattoo. She was all for it. I know she thoroughly enjoyed being the center of it all."

Hudson's lie was uncovered last year when someone anonymously tipped the police that she was faking her illness. When confronted by investigators, she admitted to the hoax and was arrested for fraud — she's due to appear in court later this month.

Hudson's friends and family aren't currently speaking to her. Her stepmother confirmed that Meaghan has a history of "lying for attention".

Well, she certainly has everyone's attention now!
