    Default Gotta Love the System...

    Charlotte , North Carolina . A lawyer purchased a box of very
    rare and expensive cigars, and then insured them against, among
    other things, fire.
    Within a month, having smoked his entire stockpile of these
    great cigars and without yet having made even his first premium
    payment on the policy the lawyer filed a claim against the
    insurance company.

    In his claim, the lawyer stated the cigars were lost "in a
    series of small fires."

    The insurance company refused to pay, citing the obvious
    reason, that the lawyer had consumed the cigars in the normal
    fashion.

    The lawyer sued... and WON!

    Stay with me.)

    Delivering the ruling, the judge agreed with the insurance
    company that the claim was frivolous. The judge stated
    nevertheless, that the lawyer held a policy from the company,
    which it had warranted that the cigars were indeed insurable
    and also guaranteed that it, would insure them against fire,
    without defining what is considered to be unacceptable fire"
    and was obligated to pay the claim.

    Rather than endure lengthy and costly appeal process, the
    insurance company accepted the ruling and paid $15,000 to the
    lawyer for his loss of the cigars in the "fires".

    NOW FOR THE BEST PART...

    After the lawyer cashed the check, the insurance company had
    him arrested on 24 counts of ARSON!!!

    With his own insurance claim and testimony from the previous
    case being used against him, the lawyer was convicted of
    intentionally burning his insured property and was sentenced to
    24 months in jail and a $24,000 fine.

    This is a true story and was the First Place winner in the
    recent Criminal Lawyers Award Contest.


    unfortunately I do not have any links to it as I've received it by e-mail...Fake or real...hell of a story.

    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    A good ending to a silly post

    I <3 snopes.com, along with Mythbusters. I got my mom just the other day on some "missing person" email she forwarded me, which had already been debunked on snopes.
