You know, years ago I went to a funeral and someone said that they asked someone to wait in the home of the deceased because of something like this. I really thought it was an extreme precaution. I guess not.

Gone are the days when the Obits were used to find vacant apts.

This is one of the oldest techniques used by crooks. It has been around since newspapers first published obituaries.

This has been going on for 50 years when I was 16 years old a neighbor’s dad died and I sat at house for them during service … it is so sad that people do this stuff just disgusting.
