People in the United States and Canada are being prosecuted for making a fake photograph of a deceased person for sale online.
According to The New York Times, police in Wisconsin are trying to shut down a website that is selling fake pictures of deceased people for $1,200 to $5,000.
Authorities in the state have been looking into the website for more than a year.
A spokesman for the Wisconsin Department of Justice told the Times that the department is looking into whether the website has violated any state or federal laws.
The department also said it is working with the FBI and other law enforcement agencies in the country to investigate the website.
The New York Post reports that a judge has ordered a woman to pay a $10,000 fine for selling a photo of herself posing with a dead person.
The Post reports the woman, identified only as Sarah, was convicted in May 2016 of selling a fake death photograph of her to a woman who believed it was a likeness of a real person.
Sarah told the woman she was selling the photograph to a relative.
She pleaded guilty to selling a photograph of herself with the deceased person, but the judge ordered her to pay $10.5, $2,500, and $10 for each false sale conviction.
Sarah, who was originally sentenced to four years in prison, has now been ordered to pay an additional $25,000 to be released from prison.
The woman was released from jail in July.
