Well, it looks like cancer fraudster Belle Gibson is back at it again, spruiking highly questionable miracle cures even as a judgement on her lies about curing brain cancer loom in court.
As the civil proceedings brought by Consumer Affairs Victoria in the Federal Court nearly reach a verdict – which could have Gibson on the ropes for up to $1.1 million in fines – the Herald Sun reports that Gibson is boosting a fad diet with miracle healing properties on Facebook, a sentence which sounds all too familiar.
Though her Whole Pantry and official Facebook pages have vanished, Belle’s been popping up in the Facebook group for the suitably quacky-sounding ‘Master Fast System’, claiming that the diet had done everything from miraculously healing cavities, shrinking her tonsils, and changing her eye colour.
The Daily Mail salvaged some of the posts Gibson posted into the group under a pseudonym:
She noted that after switching to the diet – which combines “dry fasting with herbal tinctures, kidney tea, psyllium husk and activated charcoal” – her tonsils have shrunk in size by 30% and that her hazel eyes have changed in colour to more of a greenish-blue.
“I love you all, with all I have in me, and all I have to give,” she wrote to the MFS group. “You have all saved my life and shown me what happiness and health looks and feels like.”
The consumer watchdog is hoping a court will issue an injunction to prevent Gibson from engaging in the kind of conduct she has in the past. Gibson failed to attend any of her court hearings last year and did not file defence.
Though a judgement is expected to be handed down today, it is likely that Gibson will be invited to face the court before a punishment is handed down – if the judge finds that she did breach consumer law.
It appears that after initial coverage of Gibson’s posts, the account has disappeared from the MAFS group.
