Preneed or Prepaid Funerals Have Become A Problem in the USA

Prepaying a funeral seems to be a problem for the consumers everywhere in the United States. Senator Roland Burris and the NFDA executive secretary “Randall L Earl”have brought  the prepayed preneed problem into the national spotlight. Both have strong  ties to the Illinois Funeral Directors Association Preneed Ponzi Scheme.

Last year the National Prearranged Services (NPS)scandal amounted to losses over 1 billion dollars in 19 states. State legislators and regulatory agencies have seemed to be at a loss in how to deal with this for a long time.

The problem seems to be quite a problem in the State of Mississippi as well- according to the  Mississippi Secretary of State’s website news articles are listed explaining the problem.
