Bizarre Incident in Brazil: Woman Takes Deceased Uncle to Bank for Loan



In a bizarre and macabre turn of events, a Brazilian woman brought her deceased uncle to a bank in an attempt to secure a loan, sparking a police investigation and going viral on social media.

The incident took place in Brazil, where a woman, identified as Nouns, was caught on video trying to prop up her deceased uncle, Braga, in a wheelchair at a bank. The bank employee became suspicious of the uncle’s condition and began recording the event, which later became widely shared online.

According to the police, Nouns claimed that Braga was alive when they entered the bank. She stated that she was his niece and caregiver, and had brought him to the bank following his recent discharge from the hospital where he had been treated for pneumonia. However, the bank employee’s vigilance led to the discovery that Braga had been dead for several hours.

The video shows Nouns in a state of panic, attempting to place a pen between the fingers of the corpse, ostensibly to sign the required documents for the loan. When the bank called for an ambulance, paramedics confirmed that Braga had indeed passed away long before their arrival.

The police also reviewed hospital footage, which showed Nouns exiting the hospital with Braga in a wheelchair. This evidence further complicated her claim of Braga’s condition upon arriving at the bank.

This incident not only shocked local authorities and netizens but also drew comparisons with a previous case in Pakistan, where a news anchor faced jail time for trying to use a deceased person’s thumbprint to authenticate documents.

The Brazilian case highlights the lengths to which individuals may go to manipulate the system, and it serves as a stark reminder of the importance of vigilance by financial institutions. It also underlines the role of digital media in exposing such unprecedented acts, as the viral video played a critical part in bringing the case to light.
