Banker set for payout worth millions after judge ruled he did not fake illness
Charles Miley had been condemned as a lead-swinger by insurance giants Friends Life who put private detectives on his tail
A high-flying financier accused of being a “downright liar” and “faking” symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome has been vindicated by a judge.
Charles Miley, 51, was condemned as a lead-swinger by insurance giants Friends Life who put private detectives on his tail.
They filmed him out shopping, down the pub with his mates and even at his daughter’s nativity play in a bid to prove him a liar.
But Mr Justice Turner ruled him an honest man and opened the way for him to claim millions in insurance payouts.
Mr Miley, from Rugby, was poleaxed by delibitating tiredness after suffering what seemed a minor chest infection in 2009.
He was then earning a six-figure salary as head of institutional equity sales with city brokers Piper Jaffray.
His condition put paid to his career and, unable to earn a living, the former triathlon competitor claimed on his income protection policy.
Friends Life paid up for four years until 2013, but then dramatically changed its tune, accusing Mr Miley of being a faker.
