Distrust of Funeral Directors is almost a universal problem in the United States.
Funeral Directors are generally not happy about people coming in under the average cost of a funeral. $7,323.00 USD.
Like all professions funeral directors are good and bad, and everything in between. The problem with funeral scandal is that it is almost incomprehensible, hurting folks in their hour of great need and emotional vulnerability. The answer to funeral scandal is to educate the general public on the Funeral Process and the peoples rights under the Law The Funeral Rule. If this happens the folks prefer as low cost Funeral.
Funeral home Scandals are everywhere.
This happens every month, some funeral professional, funeral home or funeral home is caught in some deceptive practice.One does not have to do much research to find a new one each month.
This year has been especially bad with the IFDA(Ilinois Funeral Directors Association) IFDA Preneed Trust Mismanagement Scandal and the National Prearranged Services scandal (NPS)that touched many States. The numbers here are quite unthinkable just like Wall Street. As in the Wall Street sandal answers are not forthcoming. There is a major paradigm shift in the funeral industry low cost funerals, green funerals and optimiistacly honesty.
Your solution to funeral scandal is happening as this is written.
There is an increase of blogs and books informing folks of the funeral process and funeral rule. The educated public will be able to force funeral directors to follow the rule, the funeral rule the law.Low cost and green funerals are coming from across the pond(UK) just like cremation did in the 1970′s.
The Wall Sreet crisis happened because they were self regulated and the same is true with the Funeral scandals.
Hopefully,and I should state because of the the economic down turn not so ethical funeral directors are being forced into changes(honesty) and non traditional funeral options because in this economic enviroment folks are short of cash.
