Tran Thi Tuyen’s photo is shown in a fake funeral she organized for herself in Cu Lao Dung Town, Dong Thap Province, Vietnam, March 29, 2021
A woman in Vietnam has been found falsifying her own funeral to escape debt collectors who were going after her.
The woman in question, who was identified to be Tran Thi Tuyen, 60, from Cu Lao Dung Town in southern Dong Thap Province, was detained on Wednesday for an investigation into the funeral she staged, said Vo Thanh Quang, chairman of the local People’s Committee.
Tuyen has been absent from Cu Lao Dung Town for a while due to alleged pressure from debt collectors, according to Quang.
On Monday, Tuyen bought a casket and sent it home to arrange a fake funeral for herself.
During the funeral, it was told by Tuyen’s relatives that she had died from illness in Cambodia after migrating there to seek business opportunities.
Local officials then opened up the casket for inspection, only to find three bags of sand inside.
After scanning through surveillance video footage, the Cu Lao Dung administration caught Tuyen’s son driving his mom to buy a casket in Dong Thap on Monday.
Tuyen’s action is a case of fraud and will be subject to further investigation by Cu Lao Dung police.
She certainly now is screwed LOL
