As reported by Alt Press, the frontwoman of Pennsylvania hardcore punk band Counterfeit has been accused of defrauding a cancer fund. According to various sources, Hali Etie allegedly faked having stage three cervical cancer, and then accepted thousands of dollars in donations.
A Michigan Organization called "Hardcore Cares" put together a benefit show for Etie as well as sold various items and started a GoFundMe page. However, recently, the origination released statements that they thought that Etie's claim of having cancer was fake. The organization stated that they will not seek recovery of the money donated to Etie. You can read the organization's statement at Alt Press.
