Like novels, a village in Sohag Governorate, in southern Egypt, witnessed a strange incident, where a man pretended to be poor throughout his life, and was stingy in spending on his wife and children.
However to their surprise, the family discovered he had hoarded a lot of money — $1.5m in the bank.
His estate was an amazing surprise for his family.
The miserly father would provide very little to his family, deluding them that he had debts, until he died, leaving a wife, a son and a daughter behind.
He worked for 25 years in a Gulf country, according to Egyptian local media.
But, a month after his death, a postman knocked on the door carrying a letter from a bank addressed to the father.
They thought that their father might have owed money to that bank, so his son went to the bank to solve the matter.
A huge surprise awaited the son when he went to the bank, where the employee asked him about his father. The son replied, “He died a month ago.”
The employee told the son that his father’s deposit in the bank amounted to 22 million Egyptian pounds (about $1.5 million).
The son could not bear the shock, so he lost his consciousness and was transferred to the hospital.
He is in good health now.
The family later went to the bank to formalise the procedures foe receiving the money.
The story has been doing the rounds on social media.
