Rajmatee Kapadia and her husband Vij Misir went on vacation in Malaysia in 2003. The wife came back alone, claiming her husband had died in a taxi after eating bad oysters.
Using official documents issued by Malaysian authorities, Kapadia managed to convince a Sioux Falls insurance company of her husband’s death and collect $2 millions.
But the story doesn’t stop here. Last year, FBI agents were informed that Misir had showed up at the U.S. Embassy in Jakarta to renew his passport. The man was arrested in Guam in November.
The couple now faces federal charges for faking death in order to defraud an insurance company.
