Desperate for beauty


In Colombia there is a saying in Spanish: "No hay mujeres feas, lo que hay es mujeres sin plata." It means "ugly women do not exist, but cashless women do."

And some women will go to great lengths to get that cash. In South Florida, two 29-year-old women are being accused of committing crimes to pay for cosmetic treatments and plastic surgery.

In Tamarac, Shatarka D. Nuby, 29, in photo above, got new breast implants and liposuction in her arms. She is now facing one count of conspiracy to use unauthorized devices, or credit cards and one count of aggravated identity theft.

In Miami Beach, Maria Elizabeth Chrysson, 29, in photo below, got skin treatments, botox injections, and lip and cheek fillers. Chrysson, also known as the Beauty Bandit, is now facing three counts of grand theft and one count of scheming to defraud.

If convicted, these women will probably be walking the jail catwalk looking a bit more beautiful than the rest.

Here is the story on Chrysson.

Here is the story on Nuby.
