Woman Caught Using Deceased Man to Co-sign Loan

In a bizarre incident reminiscent of a Hollywood movie, a woman in Brazil was reportedly caught on camera attempting to use a deceased man to co-sign a loan at a bank in Rio de Janeiro. The woman, identified as Erika de Souza Vieira Nunes, was seen standing next to the lifeless man, propped up in a chair, as she tried to keep his head from drooping.

The incident, which was captured on video, shows Nunes addressing the deceased man as her “uncle” and urging him to sign financial documents. These documents were reportedly related to a loan amounting to $3,400 that Nunes was trying to secure.

The video, initially aired by TV Globo, Brazil’s largest broadcaster, shows Nunes in conversation with the deceased man. She is heard saying, “Uncle, are you listening? You need to sign [the loan contract]. If you don’t sign, there’s no way, because I can’t sign for you.”

The situation took a turn when a bank employee noticed the man’s unusual color and suggested that he appeared unwell. Nunes, however, dismissed the employee’s concerns, stating, “He is like that. He doesn’t say anything.” She even asked the deceased man if he wanted to go to the hospital again.

This peculiar incident has sparked discussions about the lengths people will go to secure financial assistance. It also raises questions about the security measures in place at financial institutions to prevent such fraudulent activities.

While it is unclear what consequences Nunes will face for her actions, it is evident that this incident has left a lasting impression on those who witnessed it. The video has since gone viral, leading to widespread shock and disbelief.
