Obitus - Funeral Streaming Scams

Support from Obitus: Making people aware of funeral streaming scams

We are aware of scammers trying to take advantage of grieving families on social media with fake funeral stream scams. Please be assured that your peace of mind is our priority. We are here to offer support and guidance to help you avoid any fraudulent streaming activities.

How to steer clear of streaming scams

No payment is required separate to your arrangement with the Funeral Director

• Live streams are organised by bereavement professionals, like ourselves, working closely with the family.

• Professional streaming service providers will never ask you for money directly. If someone's asking for direct payment, it's likely a scam.

• The cost of a live stream is a small, one-off charge, part of the overall funeral cost you agree with the Funeral Director, not a separate payment from anyone else.

• No guests will be required to pay anything.

Watch out for strange links

• We partner with Obitus, the leading provider of funeral streaming in the UK.

• All our streams can be accessed through this secure link: https://watch.obitus.com/. If you're getting a link to anywhere else, be cautious.

• If you’re unsure about the legitimacy of a stream we're providing, please reach out to us.

We want users of our services to feel safe and supported, especially during such sensitive times. If you have any questions or concerns, we're here for you.
