    Wow. Thanks art. I don't know how I missed it. NJ.com is my #1 news place.

    A few years ago some students told me a story about a couple of their classmates who would "lay on the street" waiting for a car to hit them. They considered it a game of "chicken" but also knew they could "get rich" if they were hit. It didn't occur to them they might die.

    All I could think was "This is what happens when cousins marry". :cuckoo:

    Insurance fraud is only sad for those who have to pick up the tab.

    I wonder if they drew straws to see who got his hand chopped off.

    Sell my hand?

    Not for a million dollars.

    But I'll give you the finger for free.

    Back in the day anyone could insure anyone for no reason at all.

    It ended up leading to murder.



    Me and you get together, we deside we need a million and the easiest way to do that is too insure a 3rd person. we find anyone with id, but a policy on him, naming ourselves to get the benefits. We kill 3rd man, get double the policy b/c we paid for the accidental death/dismemberment.

    In dismemberment, the insured also gets paid. Which leads too.....


    Now the reason they may have all 3 gone in together; When you pay a premium, you sometimes have to wait for things to mature. With a policy, if you suicide within 2 years, only what you paid in is given back. 2 years and a day, it's paid with the ADD, if any.

    so what they probably did, was pool money, to get a single pay policy.

    and seriously, if a $14trillion a year industry didn't think people would do that....
