Larimer County, CO. – A resident of Larimer County is accusing a so-called “psychic” of scamming over $100,000.00 from her. The man told her that he was holding her money in a cave to keep it safe.
After the woman realized that she would never see her money again last summer, she decided to report him to her local sheriff’s office. It was there that the woman told the authorities of how she began seeing the psychic at his house in 2009.
She states that she was getting ready to retire and thought it “would be fun” to have a psychic reading. The “psychic,” named Adam Marks, told her that energy blockages were holding her back from having true happiness and that he could fix it by clearing these energy blockages.
They then developed a relationship that lasted about a year. She told investigators that Marks would ask her for money frequently; the money was supposed to assist her in healing her negative aura, help her meditate, and deal with the “huge angel” who was protecting her.
After the complaint, the court assigned an investigator the case. The investigator filed documents stating that Marks repeatedly reassured the victim that her money was safe.
He Spun The Victim A Web Of Lies
Marks would tell her that he was storing it in a cave on church property in Estes Park, Co. He also told her he needed the power and the faces of the money to put on the altar. This action would supposedly add power to his meditative fight with evil.”
The victim, whose identity is protected due to her age, states that she helped Marks purchase new furniture for himself. She is sure he used her money to travel with his children. Marks denied her request when she asked him for her money back in April 2012.
During their yearlong relationship, the woman and Marks spoke of his children, and he told her he was raising two of them and his father was raising another. His father is John Marks, the man convicted of murdering his wife, Kathy Adams, aka “Psychic Kay,” in 2012.
Adam Marks is currently incarcerated at Larimer County Jail and is facing a charge of stealing more than $20,000; his court date is set for later this month.
