The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has received reports of scammers reaching out to people offering to register them for funeral assistance. While FEMA has begun offering COVID-19 funeral assistance, they do not contact people prior to them registering for assistance. They are working to set up a dedicated toll-free number that can be used to apply for funeral assistance. FEMA has a notice on their funeral assistance webpage
about being aware of scams and what to do if you suspect one.
