    A chap in Texas, USA actually cut his finger off and mailed it to his ex in a weird last act. Check the news story here:

    That should make his domino shuffling a bit less effective I should expect.

    The guy's obviously not running on all his cylinders is he?

    got this from our Fraud Claims Investigator via e-mail
    same sort of topic

    A surgeon cut off four of his fingers to cash in on a £1.4 million insurance payout, a court has heard. Dr Manfred Tauber claims he was cutting down a tree with his wife, who slipped and severed his fingers. But insurance investigators found no traces of his DNA on the saw and say the cuts were too precise to have been caused by a chainsaw. Tauber and his wife, from the eastern town of Zehdenick, each face up to ten years in prison if they are found guilty.

    One has to wonder if he would have been better using some sort of saw...

    Don't worry chaps, I'll get my own coat and shut the door behind me.
