Posted: November 18, 2015
If an email seems "fishy," chances are it is. NFDA was recently alerted by several members in different parts of the country to the latest scam email. The email, which is riddled with grammatical errors, reads:
Hello my name is Anthony Cockrell, I live in [your city]. I am a captain of a fishing vessel and I am on sea at this moment. I will like to use your funeral home for the funeral of my wife who passed away on the 14th of November, 2015 after an automobile accident in London England while on a business trip. she is currently at a funeral home in England.
