    The funeral plan providers that rip you off.

    The final insult - plan to stop the "rip-off" funeral plan providers who prey you when you're at your most vulnerable.

    People are being ripped off while at their most vulnerable by people offering to help arrange the funerals of their loved ones - and it needs to stop now.

    A crackdown on "rip-off" pre-paid funeral plan providers who prey on the vulnerable has been signalled by the Government.

    The Treasury is proposing bringing the sector under the regulation of the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) after evidence showed elderly people are being "pressured, harassed and misled" by some operators.

    That is good news as I also have been targetted by these crooks.

    I hope that the government really tighten up on these people as what they do is an attack on our human rights.

    It is outrageous that people like this should target folk when they are at their most vulnerable.

    If things were not bad enough with some loved-one dying they also have to try to resist these sharks.

    I hope that the government REALLY sort out this scandal.

    I do too Zathrus, but I won't be waiting with bated breath until they do.

    It's already a worry when a relative, ( my mum in particular ), is coming near the end of their lives but it is even more worrying when you know that the funeral is going to cost a lot of money that we might not have. Sad

    Well said Angie.

    I do hope that your mum keeps going for a long while yet.

    All of the best for both of you.
