Authorities in search of Pakistani woman who faked death to claim over $1.5 million US insurance

Pakistani investigators are searching for a woman who faked her death certificate to receive $1.53 million from two American life insurance policies. Investigation reports show that a son and daughter of Pakistani citizen Seema Saleem Kharbey applied for a $1 million American General Life Insurance policy in December 2008 and for another one from MetLife in March 2009.

After submitting their mother’s fake death certificates in 2011, the siblings received from the insurers nearly $1.53 million and transferred the funds to a Karachi branch of JS Bank.

After her reported death, Kharbey had reportedly traveled to Hong Kong, Thailand, Iran, Brazil and the United Arab Emirates between August 2011 and August 2013.
