That’s not how she planned it.

A 21-year-old woman in Slovenia sawed off her own hand with the help of family after taking out multiple insurance policies this year – the hope was that she’d get around 400,000 euros, or $451,000 according to the NY Post.

Unfortunately, responders found the severed hand that was intentionally left outside by family, and doctors re-attached it. The woman said she was cutting tree branches when the accident happened, but authorities quickly realized it was all fraud.

She now faces up to eight years in jail.

What a fail.
