Just so you know. Evidently Avon is now the target of the "Mom, I'm in trouble and need money" phone scam. I got a call Saturday, Feb. 23 around 11ish in the morning from a male voice purporting to be my son. It wasn't. I left my real son a message that if he really was in York, Pa. for the death of a friend and in finacial trouble to call me "again" and I'd apologize. Folks, be VERY aware of tone/quality of voice and inconsistencies in the "story". Ask a question about a current event that only you and he would really know the answer to. My scammer was way off base on a number of "comments". Be aware, there are thieves using every emotional blackmail trick in the book, out there just waiting for you to believe everything someone says, just because you want to be the "Good Person".

I believe they’re just being smart to take this course of actions. What matters the most is they live up by their reputation to deliver what was expected on them to… xoxo:D www.ssofunerals.com
