What began with a $10.00 reading turned into a $73,000.00 rip-off for a 65-year-old woman in Colorado. Her experience has driven her to take it upon herself to warn other people.
Her hope is that she keeps them from making the same mistake she did. It started the day she spotted a psychic shop and decided to stop by and get a simple $10.00 reading. The psychic performed the reading but then told her he could see terrible things on her aura.
He promptly convinced her to pay for an additional $825.00 reading. During that reading, he told her he needed to borrow about $10,000 in cash from her. This money would give him the power he needed to prevent bad things from happening to her in the future.
The woman went home after that first pricey visit and later received a call from him. “Something terrible was about to happen to me which he was trying to ward off,” she told reporters.
It seems that the terrible thing he was referring to was that he was about to swindle $73,000 from her. The psychic told her that he needed to hold onto her money to keep her from experiencing tragic events.
Fake Psychics Are Good At Scaring Their Victims
He explained to her that he was only able to draw his psychic abilities from the money and couldn’t help her without it. He promised to keep her money safely inside a cave where no one else could get to it.
The woman was finally able to see the psychic’s true intent, but only after seeing him for several months and giving him more than $73,000.00 of her retirement savings throughout that time.
The victim knew nothing about this psychic until she spoke with the local news about her situation. She then learned of his past criminal history.
The case is currently pending as we speak, but so far, he has three charges against him: theft, intimidating a witness, and crimes against an at-risk adult.
Please don’t trust just any psychic with your hard-earned money! It is important that you do your research and only go with reliable psychics backed by excellent reviews to avoid something like this!
