Consumer Minute: Fake Funeral Scam
COLUMBIA, SC (WOLO)-- Crysty Vaughan has tips on what to look out for in this scam.
The Federal trade commission warns you to be on the lookout for anything that says "Funeral Notification" in the subject line.
The fake email appears to be from a funeral home, offering the date for a funeral service, and invites you to click on the link for more information.
Do not click on the link. Delete the link.
Consumer officials say it could download a virus.
