    I am ecstatic to be back in the Carolinas, and back on air! I spent fifteen years in the broadcast new business before taking a break to start a family, write a book and build a Sports Media consultancy. While I certainly enjoyed my new directions, I never lost the “bug.”

A new email scam is targeting those grieving the loss of a loved one by sending people fraudulent emails about funeral services. 

The Federal Trade Commission says the emails have links that claim to give people detailed information about the service.  Instead… clicking on those links installs malicious software that can take over your computer or smart device, allowing scammers to see everything you’re typing.

Barbara Pinson Lash caught up with a software engineer and a local funeral home manager to tell this story.
