If you are going to try to stage some insurance fraud, may I suggest you not do this.
Last March in Ljubljana, Slovenia, an unnamed 21-year-old woman and a 29-year-old relative were arrested for insurance fraud after the young woman cut off her hand in an effort to collect almost 400,000 euros in insurance payments. Two other relatives were released.
The four had recently signed up with five different insurance companies for life and injury coverage. According to police spokesman Valter Zrinski, “With one of her accomplices, she intentionally amputated the hand at the wrist with a circular saw [Editors Note: ewwww], hoping to stage it as an accident.”
According to police, the group left the hand behind when they went to the hospital, intending to ensure a permanent disability, but doctors at Ljubljana University Medical Center were able to retrieve the hand and re-attach it.
