Virus Found In Fake Funeral Home Emails

Posted: Updated:

The Federal Trade Commission is warning consumers of a virus found in emails that appear to be sent from legitimate funeral homes.  

Any email that says "funeral notification" should not be opened.  

The FTC says by clicking on them, their computer becomes open to the virus.  

The virus can then steal personal and financial information.  

The National Funeral Director's Association says some emails pull the name and logos off of real funeral homes' websites to make them look real.
