Show Notes

When tragedy strikes, you’re vulnerable and that makes you a prime target for con artists. Death is a time when we’re most vulnerable.

 Scammers sweep in to sell family history books, offers to bring your loved one back to life through cryogenics, and unneeded and expensive caskets that are destined for incineration. Even before death, scammers may sell you a pre-need policy, then disappear with your money, leaving your insurance worthless.

 In this episode about death scams, you’ll learn about all of this, plus the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory will give you advice about how to deal with the return of the dead in a zombie apocalypse. They say Nevada may be your best bet. Lay in a supply of quarters for the slot machines. You may need them.
