STUPID HILLBILLY NEWS - LADY FAKES DEATH TO GO SHOPPING!

posted by Brian Taylor -

There have to be easier ways to get a nice car than this, right?

There's a 49-year-old woman from Portsmouth, Virginia named Alexandra  Hatcher.  And two years ago, she came up with an elaborate scheme to get  rich . . . by faking her own death.

First she went to Washington state and legally changed her name.  Then  she and her husband Albert Hatcher whipped up a fake death certificate  and published a death notice in the newspaper . . . and he submitted  claims for her life insurance.

And once they got the money, they went on a SHOPPING SPREE.  They  bought 20 fancy cars . . . and when they couldn't afford some of them,  they used fake checks.  Then they flipped those cars as collateral for  loans for more cars.

But these two weren't the master criminals they were trying to be, and  the cops were able to figure out what was happening pretty quickly.

Alexandra and Albert both just pleaded guilty to several charges,  including bank fraud, counterfeiting, and mail fraud.  They're both  facing up to 30 years in prison.
