Recently, a client reported that shortly after her husband passed away, but before calling hours, she received a call from “Emily” at the funeral home where her husband’s wake was to take place. Emily said that they need her Social Security Number in order to process the paperwork with Social Security Administration. Fortunately, her daughter stopped her from giving information to Emily. Turns out Emily did not work at the funeral home. She apparently saw the obituary with all the details, including the surviving spouse and funeral home name. Who knows how many others she contacted?
Please be alert – especially if someone you know has recently lost a loved one.
