Type of a scam Online Purchase
Went on my email and this site popped up. I wanted to send a condolence to a friend. I bought 10 trees for $30.00 plus postage for $5.00. Never asked for email address where I wanted to send it. How stupid am I.
I was contacted by a family we are serving that pointed out Echovita had picked up a notice from my website. Information was not correct, they had the wrong town of residence, omitted the widower's name and had the wrong cemetery and address of same. The Church is angry, the family is angry and I'm furious. Within hours they changed this notice but still have the residence wrong.

Echovita is a death notice pirating company. BEWARE. They quickly acquire information on a death, and announce it on behalf of the family (in our case, inaccurately with wrong, misleading information, before we had had a chance to even write the obituary). Then they leave place for your friends and family to leave messages, and click on the various advertising links for ordering flowers, etc. Canada successfully brought suit against this company. The U.S. needs to do the same.
