The episode took place on Tuesday afternoon, April 16, in a bank branch in Bang, a populous neighborhood located in the western area of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Erika de Souza Vieira Nunes was trying to withdraw a loan in the name of the deceased, who was sitting in a wheelchair next to her.

A bank employee filmed the situation, and finally, the woman was arrested and formally accused of attempted theft by fraud. The man approaches her, pointing to her corpse and says something to Erika, but that did not change the situation. He was looking to withdraw money in his name. Security videos from the place reveal what he had done since he arrived. The video of the incident has gone viral and has been viewed more than one million times on YouTube. The woman has been charged with attempted fraud by fraud and attempted theft of a corpse. The case is currently being investigated by the city's Civil Police and the National Court of Justice of Brazil. The suspect has since been released on bail.
