Today’s email contained a notice from Eubank Funeral Home to let me know of an “unprecedented event” and offer prayers of condolence. Great. Prayers are always welcome. The only problem is that I can’t think of anyone of any import to me that died in the last week.
I wasn’t about to clink on any link, but a quick google search turned up the Eubank Funeral Home. Apparently the folks at Eubank are aware of the scam going around and have the following posted on their website:
Urgent Warning: A FAKE funeral notice appearing to come from Eubank Funeral Home is circulating. It is NOT from Eubank Funeral Home. Please DO NOT OPEN the link as it is SPAM and may contain MALWARE. We regret this has happened.PLEASE DO NOT CALL US TO REPORT THIS. Thank you.
Thankfully, it was just a scam. No one died and I avoided the cryptolocker.
