This was hilarious, talk about stupidity....
A man who faked his own death so his former wife could claim a £300,000 payout on their life insurance policy was caught out when he visited his GP six months after he "died".
Ahmad Akhtary, 34, got hold of a fraudulent death certificate from Afghanistan stating he had died of a "brain trauma" after an accident there in 2006.
His ex-wife, Anne, a 43-year-old mother of triplets, then submitted a claim to Norwich Union for the £300,000 payable on their joint life policy if one of them died, a court heard. But it was not long before the unsophisticated plot went wrong because Akhtary continued to live openly in Gloucester and keep appointments with his GP.
