8 on Your Side warns about funeral home e-mail scam

LAS VEGAS - A new e-mail scam is circulating that could bring damage and destruction to your computer files. The e-mail claims to be from a funeral home.

The message shows an invitation to a funeral of someone you know who has passed away. The "funeral home" sends the invitations. All you have to do is click a link for details. Don't open it. If you click the link, you will open a Pandora's Box of viruses and spyware on your computer.

The Federal Trade Commission found this scam and is warning people about it. The FTC says at least one million people may have received this bogus e-mail.
If you receive it, delete it and always remember to keep your security settings high.

If you have a problem you want investigated, contact 8 on Your Side at 702-650-1907.
