The fact anyone would try to make money off of the pain of losing a loved one to COVID-19 is not only appalling, but it's probably going to keep happening. The Better Business Bureau and FEMA are warning those who lost a loved one to be wary of calls for a death certificate or an offer to pay for funeral expenses.
Disaster preparedness has been top of mind for quite sometime now, especially in light of recent tornadoes, floods and earthquakes. FEMA Director Craig Fugate has joked that he watches a "Waffle House Index" of disaster magnitude. The Wall Street Journal says Waffle House has a long standing reputation for staying open during natural disasters.
