Woman’s Wheelie Bad Idea: Trying to Score a Loan with a Corpse!

Woman’s Wheelie Bad Idea: Trying to Score a Loan with a Corpse!

Alright, brace yourselves for a story that sounds like it’s been plucked straight out of a twisted sitcom script. We’ve got a tale from Rio de Janeiro that’s equal parts jaw-dropping and stomach-churning. Picture this: a woman strolls into a bank, not with a briefcase or a stack of papers, but with her deceased uncle in tow. Yes, you read that right!

Now, before you start picturing scenes from “Weekend at Bernie’s,” let me fill you in on the deets. This woman, let’s just call her Erika (because it seems like every bizarre character in these stories is named Erika, right?), decides it’s a stellar idea to drag her late uncle along for a bank visit. And no, it’s not to catch up on some overdue financial matters from beyond the grave. She’s actually trying to secure a loan in his name. Talk about next-level scamming!

As Erika wheels her dearly departed uncle up to the bank counter, the poor man’s noggin is doing the Macarena – swaying back and forth like he’s trying to catch a beat. And Erika? Oh, she’s in full-blown performance mode, trying to coax her uncle’s stiff fingers into signing off on a four-figure loan. “Uncle, are you listening? You have to sign it. I can’t sign for you,” she pleads, as if her dead relative’s John Hancock is the missing piece of the financial puzzle.

But wait, it gets even more surreal. While Erika’s busy having a one-sided convo with the corpse, one eagle-eyed bank worker decides to chime in. “I don’t think this is legal. He doesn’t look well. He’s very pale,” they remark, probably trying to decide if they’re witnessing a bank visit or an audition for “The Walking Dead.”


Of course, Erika’s got a snappy comeback locked and loaded: “He’s like that,” she quips, as if having a pallid, motionless uncle is just another day in the office. Spoiler alert: it’s not.

Thankfully, sanity prevails (sort of), and the bank staff eventually dial up the emergency services, realizing that having a deceased customer isn’t exactly business as usual. And lo and behold, it’s confirmed – Uncle Paulo has already punched his ticket to the great beyond before Erika ever wheeled him into the bank.

Fast forward to the aftermath, and Erika finds herself on the wrong side of the law, facing the music for her shameless shenanigans. Turns out, trying to pull a fast one with a corpse isn’t the smartest move in the scammer’s playbook. Who knew?

But hold on to your hats, folks, because this isn’t the first time we’ve seen someone try to cash in on their dearly departed relatives. Remember that nephew from Ireland who thought he could snag his dead uncle’s pension? Yeah, turns out, life – and crime – really do imitate art.
