Over the years we, unfortunately, have had to share many stories relating to funeral scandals, scams, embezzling and even corpse abuse. But this is the first time we have ever received a press release statement from a company involved in a scam openly admitting to the scam committed by an employe ahead of us posting about it and offering a statement on how they handled the issue. We applaud the Foundation Partners for their courage and openness.
The following statement was emailed to us last week by Foundation Partners President and CEO Brad Rex:
