Woman Cuts Off Her Own Hand In Attempt To Collect Insurance

Over in the country of Slovenia, a 22-year-old named Julija Adlesic decided to carry out one of the most ridiculous insurance fraud schemes hoping to collect a $1.2 million insurance policy payout. Instead of cashing the check, though, she's going to jail for a few years.

The woman cut off her own hand with a CIRCULAR SAW (!!) and showed up at the hospital with her boyfriend. The two claimed she had accidentally severed her hand while cutting tree branches. The couple didn't bring the hand along, however, in an apparent attempt to keep doctors from being able to reattach it. That effort proved futile, as the hand was soon recovered by police and reattached to her anyway.

Prosecutors say that she'd taken out five insurance policies about a year before the hand-chopping and that Abramov had also conducted internet searches on artificial hands. Abramov received a three-year prison sentence.
