The Better Business Bureau is warning western Virginia seniors about a scam that comes in the form of a mailer claiming to help pay funeral costs. The letter comes from the “National Processing Center,” a name which implies false affiliation with the U.S. Census. The return address points to Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington D.C., the same street as the White House. The mailings claim that “a new program is now available” and “these approved programs may pay 100 percent of all final expenses,” or, in other words, funeral costs.
