I’m sorry for your loss.
I’m not sure of the laws for your state, but I don’t believe he cancharge you anything unless he told you up front at the beginning of
the conversation that his “services” were chargable and you agreed to
the terms and rate.I would contact the better business bureau and report both the person
who you talked to at the donation office and the person she referred
you to. If this woman is working for a charitable organization, she isobligated to not do anything that will cause harm to the charity name
and reputation. Calling the BBB should be free and who knows, they
could already have other calls on file. I would also call the charityand let them know what this person is doing by referring clients to
this man. She may be getting around their recording by stating he is a
“funeral director” and making it seem legit. You will be helpingprotect others from their scam as well.
If you gave out any financial information such as bank names,
accounts, etc. be sure to contact your bank and let them know that youare not authorizing these people to touch your money, that they got
your information fraudulantly. Be pro-active. Better to be safe and
warn everyone up front than to fight for your money back shouldsomething happen down the road.
I’m sorry that you had to go through this at all but during such a
sad, stressful time is just terrible and speaks volumes about thecharacter of such people involved.
Thanks for sharing your story with us.
