Brazilian bank account (Rio de Janeiro)

Bom dia,

I'm trying to find a way to open a bank account at a Brazilian bank. Maybe it's impossible, but if anyone has any kind of info or contacts that can help, please let me know.

I don't need a poupança with a high interest rate, but just want to be able to make payments to pay for services like light, gas, etc. using internetbanking.

I don't have:
- permanent visa
- job at a Brazilian company (and required salary slip)

I do have:
- CPF
- permanent address

Of course there are some workarounds, like opening an account on the name of someone else that does fit the criteria or open a company, but that's all to much hassle/illegal.

Any other easy and legal route? Please let me know, I'm willing to pay for it.

Abraços
