Art that's so awesome I couldn't HOPE to do quality like these. Sounds defeatist of me but that's the way Life goes. Even if I did improve, it'd be nothing compared to THESE guys. Enjoy.

I love arts of fantasy, nature, imagination and whimsy. :D

  • Mood: Bitter
Say hello to the latest trick to get your information (maybe): funeral home email notices. I've gotten 4 or 5 from one in Florida where my aunt passed lately. The funeral home itself seems legit, but the email is vague. It never says WHO died, and wants you to click a link to get an invitation to the funeral.

WELL...
1.) It always says "your friend". It was my AUNT, and her arrangements are being taken care of UP HERE IN MAINE by the funeral home right up the street from me. She was cremated, and NO FUNERAL ARRANGEMENTS were to be done down there in Florida. The old gal's coming back home to be buried next to my Uncle Ed. With a celebration of life to be given in the spring at a place of her family's choosing. Has NOTHING to do with this Florida funeral home. :roll: Jeez.

2.) The "notices" are always form letter style. The "to whom it may concern" type. So informal. NOT the way funeral homes operate. Toss the notices in your junk mail and flush. :toilet: DO NOT CLICK ON ANYTHING! I went to the actual funeral home site and tried to contact them, in case a cyberthief was posing as them, to warn them. Also to tell them to knock it off with the notices...the info I needed was already in the local newspaper, for all to see...BEFORE these "notices" started to appear. Timing, much? I smell something rotten in Denmark, as the Bard wrote.
BTW I went to click "contact us" on the site...the antivirus thing popped up, saying "you don't wanna go no further, Bro". So that's that. I'd have to write to them. I don't think it's worth my time. I even wonder if the funeral home IS what it says it is. (I won't say which one, to protect them, in case of benefit of the doubt that they ARE legit.)

Sorry for the wall of text, but it goes on...with A DIFFERENT funeral home:

3.) Another one, with no address but a name of the "home", sent me an identical notice. "Your Friend" passed March 16, 2014. Click here to send condolences. It doesn't address WHO the "friend" is, where the funeral home is, and is more brief than the notice the Florida one kept giving. This is a Scam, kids. NEVER click on anything like this. They are playing on your fear and sympathies. They never tell you WHO it is that died, instilling fear in you. (Who could it be? Who died? OMG, NOT insert his/her name

Long story short: cyber criminals will try ANYTHING to get your ID or password or other information. I call it the "crying baby recording in the bomb" trick. You fall for something that evokes strong feelings and the trap is sprung. DON'T FALL FOR IT and stay safe. If you can, report these jerks. Makes it so you can't be sure about anything anymore.
Thank the InterNet for that. It makes crime so easy these days.  Stay alert and stay informed.

Update:
From South Berwick Maine police:

Watch out for cell phone calls from "Publisher's Clearing House". (Apparently targeting the US.) A man claiming to be from PCH calls telling you you won, and to send him $297 via Western Union to get the prize, or something of that nature. This is NOT how PCH works. The area code is 876, which is from Kingston, Jamaica.  If he calls, don't answer, or just don't let him talk you into anything. It is a confirmed Scam. (I would say DO NOT answer a number with that area code, but hey it could just be family calling from Jamaica. :shrug:) Just be aware. So far this ass hasn't taken anybody's money.
