What began with a $10.00 reading turned into a $73,000.00 rip off for a 65-year-old woman in Colorado. Due to her experience, she has now taken it upon herself to warn other people, which will hopefully keep them from making the same mistake she did. It all started one day when she spotted a psychic shop and decided to stop by and just get a simple $10.00 reading. The psychic gave her this reading but then told her that he could see terrible things on the right side of her aura and convinced her to pay for a $825.00 reading instead, which she did. He then told her that in order to acquire the power that will enable him to prevent bad things from happening to her in the future, he needed to borrow about $10,000 in cash from her.
The woman went home after that first pricey visit and then 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 would appear that the terrible thing he was referring to was the fact that he was about to swindle $73,000 from her.
The psychic told her that he simply needed to hold onto her money in order to keep bad things from happening to her. He explained to her that the reason for this was because he was only able to draw his psychic abilities from the money and could not help her without it. He promised her that her money would be kept 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 period. She knew nothing about this psychic until she spoke with the local news about her situation; it was then that she learned of his past criminal history.
The case is currently pending as we speak but it is known that 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 so important that you do your research and only go with reliable psychics that are backed by great reviews to avoid something like this!
