In a peculiar incident in Brazil, a woman in her forties attempted to secure a loan using the identity of her deceased uncle by transporting his body to a bank.

According to reports from Brazilian media outlets such as G1, on the 17th, Erika de Sousa Vieira Nunes (42) was apprehended by authorities while attempting to borrow 17,000 reais (approximately $3,000) under her uncle’s name at a bank located in the Bangú area of Rio de Janeiro.

The events were captured by closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras installed at the bank’s loan consultation desk.

Nunes was observed prompting her uncle, Paulo Roberto Braga, seated in a wheelchair, to sign documents necessary for the loan application. Despite Nunes’ repeated attempts, Braga remained unresponsive.

Upon noticing Braga’s unresponsive state, Nunes attempted to communicate with him and even tried to sign the documents on his behalf. However, suspecting a medical emergency, bank staff promptly alerted emergency services, revealing Nunes’ actions.

Subsequent investigation revealed that Braga had passed away approximately two hours before they arrived at the bank. It was determined that Nunes had knowingly transported Braga’s deceased body to the bank premises.

In her defense, Nunes’ legal counsel contended that Braga was alive when Nunes accompanied him to the bank. Describing Nunes as an ordinary woman with familial responsibilities, the legal representative expressed confidence in her innocence.

Local authorities arrested Nunes on charges of attempted fraud and desecration of a corpse.

According to reports from O GLOBO, Nunes purported to be Braga’s caregiver from 2013 to 2021 and received 30,000 reais (approximately $5,300) in subsidies during that period.
