Gerald Hardin Case Study

In May 2008, a case was heard in South Carolina district court against Gerald Hardin, a known drug user, who, along with another person, chopped off their friend’s hand to cash in on a $671,000 dismemberment claim.

As per FBI records, they used a pole saw to chop off their mentally challenged Michael Weaver’s hand and filed a claim against his home insurance policy and three accidental death and dismemberment policies.

Weaver always looked up to Hardin as a father figure and therefore agreed to chop off his hand so that he could claim compensation for the accident on six different policies. For this crime, Gerald Hardin was sentenced to five years of imprisonment.

John and Anne Darwin Case Study

Insurance fraud done by a British couple, John and Anne Darwin, proved to be one of the most infamous cases that inspired several documentaries.

The couple was drowning in debt and thought they could get rid of all their liabilities if John faked his own death. In 2002, John, with the support of his wife Anne, did so and reportedly disappeared in an accident. His wife received a sum of £680,000 worth of life insurance claims and was able to clear off their debts.

The couple, then under false identity, started living a new life in Panama. However, they were caught because of a social media post and were each sentenced to six years in prison.

Note: This is only a glimpse of one of a few case studies that we might cover. All case studies are subject to change as per current trends and developments, except a few famous ones from the past.
