Protecting Yourself From Fraud


Unfortunately, because of the actions of a few, the funeral service profession has received attention for wrongdoing and charges of fraud. As a consumer, you need to be aware of the criminal and unethical practices some providers may use and that you may face when planning a funeral. It will help to ask yourself the following questions:

  • How reputable is the business I am considering?
  • Does this business operate with strong consumer standards?
  • What are my rights as a consumer?
  • How do I know if I am being offered a fair price?
  • How can I ensure the best care for my loved one?
  • How do government regulations protect me?

Selected's Code of Good Practice

Since 1965, the members of Selected Independent Funeral Homes have followed a Code of Good Practice that insists on honesty and integrity at a time when consumers need them the most. This code of conduct even preceded the federal government's consumer protection standards.

"We cannot say enough about how wonderful they were. We worked with Dave. He was truly understanding of our needs during out time of grief. He explained all of our options and didn't give us any pressure to make choices. He was patient and kind. It was as if he was a part of the family throughout the process. "
