Family of Psychic frauds reaches out to celebrities to help pay for legal expenses
Fort Lauderdale, FL- A family of supposed “psychics” living in Florida are attempting to raise money to pay for their legal defenses after being accused of running a $40 million scam via Twitter.
According to the South Florida Sun Sentinal, the leader of the family group of psychics- Rose Marks- is using Twitter to ask celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton, Joel Osteen, Suze Orman, Donald Trump, and even Oprah Winfrey for donations that will be used towards the large legal finances they are facing to try to defend themselves.
In an interview last Wednesday, Marks told reporters that she is hoping celebrities, and anyone else who would like, will help her family pay for their legal fees, as well as to help pay for their current living expenses, since they are now unable to work as psychics.
“I haven’t got anything… nothing yet, but I’m working on it. I’m trying. I don’t know any other way [to raise money],” says Marks.
Prosecutors are accusing her and nine other members of her family of preying on customers at their psychic services business located in Fort Lauderdale and defrauding them of $40 million. They were arrested and are now facing federal charges.
The federal charges state that Marks and her family lied to their clients by making them believe they had the power to remove curses, chase away evil spirits, predict the future, and cure various diseases, all while taking their money, jewelry, and any other valuable items they owned as payment.
Fortunately, the authorities have banned the Marks family from working as spiritual healers, fortune-tellers, psychics, etc. while their case is pending.
This particular article really burns me up inside. This family of Psychic frauds has stolen over $40 million from victims! Now their asking celebrities to help pay for their legal defense? How absurd! I hope they throw the book at these people.
