Mum and son faked her death in insurance scam
A mother and son have admitted faking her death to fraudulently claim a £136,000 insurance payout.
Arafa Nassib conspired with her son Adil Kasim, 18, to commit fraud against Scottish Widows by pretending she died in Zanzibar.
They pleaded guilty at Birmingham Crown Court to making false representations between March and December last year.
Yusuf Abdullah denies conspiring with them and prosecutors will decide by 14 June whether to proceed with his case.
The 24-year-old, from Lower Rushall Street, Walsall, is accused of conspiring to commit fraud by false representation.
Ms Nassib, 48, and Mr Kasim, also of Lower Rushall Street, made fraudulent claims against two policies. One was worth £115,267 and the other £21,263.
A sentencing date will be set once prosecutors decide on Mr Abdullah's case.
