There is a common belief in Việt Nam that when a person is met with death, only their physical body dies, and their spirit lives on in another world.
But the family in this story did not expect that the dead man, in the spirit world, would have performed such an awkward action.
Lê Văn Nở, the director, owner and legal representative of a company in Đức Hòa District in Long An Province, died of lung cancer. His family registered for his death certificate at local people’s committee five days after he passed away.
After the death, the family discovered that Nở’s company had been sold to another person at the price of VNĐ2 billion (US$87,000).
Much to their surprise, all documents related to the ownership transfer had been sealed and signed by Nở…13 days after his death.
The ownership transfer was certificated by the provincial Department of Planning and Investment.
The hypothesis in which someone stole the seal was impossible because the family said that the company’s seal and legal documents are being kept by them.
“Where is the second seal from? Who signed the paper? For what purpose did someone do that? All the process had been done 13 days after my husband’s death,” Nhan Thị Hữu, Nở’s wife said.
The ownership of the company’s bank account had been transferred to the new director. All money in Nở’s account had disappeared.
