We have recently become aware of a nationwide scam targeting families that have experienced the loss of a loved one.
In this scam, individuals pretending to be representatives of a funeral home contact the deceased’s family and may request, or even demand, some form of payment before services can proceed, or may request personal information about the decedent.
If you receive a call from an individual claiming to be a funeral home employee who is attempting to gather financial and/or personal information, please consider the following:
We regret that we must make you aware of such a scam, but feel that by sharing this issue, you will be more prepared should you be contacted.
