A Man Arranged A Fake Funeral To Test His Loved Ones' Loyalty

The resurrection is real! Perhaps someone would say such if they saw that the deceased attended the funeral while walking and talking. Well, that happened on January 18, when a man arranged a fake funeral to test his loved ones' loyalty.

The death of Baltazar Lemos, a 60-year-old Brazilian "ceremonialist" who oversaw numerous funerals, was announced the following day after a photo of a hospital was posted to his social media accounts on January 9. The post reads:

At the beginning of this sad afternoon, Baltazar Lemos left us. More information coming soon

His loved ones shared their sorrow in the post's comments section. Some even inquired about the cause of his passing, but they only received information about his burial, including the location and schedule. On January 18, the fake funeral was held in a small chapel.

During the video, a video of Baltazar talking about his life was shown, which made some of his guests cry. Baltazar shocked his family when he walked out of the altar doors afterward. Some of them ended up crying, and others were left confused. The man then tried to calm everyone down by telling them it was all a trick.

His guests told him he had gone too far. But Baltazar publicly apologized to his family and friends in an interview with a Brazilian newspaper, saying he had only done it to find out who would mourn his passing. He said:

I had the idea five months ago. I wanted to make it look like I really died. People interpreted it in their own way. The truth is that I wanted to know who would come to my wake.

According to him, the reason he kept his plan to himself was that he was holding out hope that it would be successful. He had no intention of hurting, offending or otherwise causing anyone any kind of harm in any way. He continued by saying, "I truly apologize to these people."

Impact Of Faking One's Own Death

Have you ever felt like everything would be manageable if you could simply start fresh with a new name and a new life? Some people may believe that faking one's own death is the best option to start over in today's society when it is simple to adopt a new identity and relocate to a place where they are unknown. Indeed, if everyone thinks you're dead, then naturally they won't bother looking for you, right?

On the other hand, faking one's own death can have disastrous consequences for family and friends. It was an irresponsible thing to do, and many people have suffered because of it.

The shock of discovering that someone they care about has staged their own death can be painful for family and friends, resulting in long-term psychological damage. Even if you don't break any laws by making up your own death, you won't be able to live a legal life afterward if you want to interact with society at all.

Consider the following situations before fabricating your death: If you try to build credit under your new name, you will be committing fraud by providing false information in order to gain credit, so don't buy a house or car unless you can pay cash.

Furthermore, if you apply for a job, you will very certainly be required to fake your career history and other aspects. That, too, is deception. Ask yourself too: Did I owe any back state or federal taxes when you "died"? It is illegal to fake your death in order to avoid paying taxes.

Did I owe child support or alimony prior to your untimely "death"? Fraud is committed when you stage your own death in order to evade such payments. The Get Legal website states below the potential penalties for someone who fakes his own death. They said:

Fraud can be either civil or criminal in nature (or both). If you are charged criminally with fraud, you can faceΒ felonyΒ charges, based on the severity of your case. That can lead to fines, prison time, and restitution. A civil fraud complaint can lead to a verdict where you are liable for substantial damages to another person or entity.

Is It A Crime To Fake Your Own Death?

"Pseudocide (faking one's own suicide) isn't inherently a crime," said James Quiggle, director of communications for the Coalition Against Insurance Fraud in Washington, D.C. "But it involves so many built-in frauds that it's virtually impossible to legally fake your drowning. Frankly, you'll only be drowning in fraud," he added.

Is Baltazaar Lemos The Only One Who Fabricates Death?

No. An American man suspected of faking his own death was apprehended at a hospital in Glasgow. In December 2019, Nicholas Rossi, also known as Nicholas Alahverdian, 34, told US media that he had late-stage non-lymphoma, Hodgkin's lymphatic system cancer, and that he only had weeks to live.

Several news outlets reported Rossi's death in February 2020. Because of his work for children's rights, he was described as a "fighter who fought on the front lines for two decades" in an online memorial. His ashes had also been dispersed at sea, according to the post.

What Is Funeral Etiquette?

According to traditional funeral etiquette, you should introduce yourself, beginning with your name and how you knew the dead. Move on after expressing your sympathies. Don't take over the mourners. Allow others to express their support.

Final Words

A man arranged a fake funeral to test his loved ones' loyalty and was also curious to see who would show up to his funeral. The visitors, however, are enraged by his scheme. He wondered how many of his loved ones would attend his burial if he passed away, and because he had no way of knowing if he had actually died, he decided to stage his own passing and count the mourners.

As you might expect, the best word to describe how people feel when they see Baltazar is "confused." Some people started crying, and others were left with their mouths open, but as soon as he said he had faked his death to see who would come to his funeral, people started calling him a cruel person.

What if you want to escape your obligations, so you are planning to falsify your death? Arranging a fake death to get out of paying taxes or other bills is not against the law per se, but it's almost impossible to live a meaningful life without regularly lying. You will be putting yourself at risk of being accused of fraud at every turn because you will have no choice but to use false information.

This includes when applying for jobs, apartments, and credit. In addition, the outcomes of criminal and civil proceedings involving claims of fraud might be very different, including incarceration, penalties, restitution, or monetary damages.
