A funeral service based in Modesto is under investigation due to unethical business practice.
Shaun McGuire who owns McGuire Cremation & Funeral Service in Modesto is accused of taking in money in advance for services. Funeral services should not take in money in advance, but are supposed to put it in trust.
Tom Budhi claims that he gave McGuire a$1,000 in check to arrange for the funeral of his wife who has a terminal sickness. Now the funeral service owner is unreachable and the check has already been cashed.
In addition, according to an article by Patty Guerra which appeared on The Modesto Bee, several families that were having trouble getting loved ones’ remains returned have also filed complaints against McGuire with the state Cemetery and Funeral Board.
The investigation is still on-going in the case.
