$40 Million Worth of Money and Properties Scammed by Psychic Family
It is believed that real psychics can see into the future; that they can use numerology, astrology, horoscope and even tarot to help people, including themselves, in whatever situation. However, a family of psychics from Florida was actually not able to help themselves by seeing their future in jail.
A Florida family of psychics has been found to have scammed around $40 million from their unsuspecting victims for over two decades. About 10 people from New York and Fort Lauderdale have been found guilty and are charged with 61 counts of conspiracy. Other charges include wire fraud, mail fraud, and money laundering. Each of these people is sentenced to a maximum of 20 years in prison.
The psychic family must have been very good at making up stories to their clients. They used several tricks and strategies that lured their clients and patrons into believing them. This included them having a direct connection or communication with St. Michael the Archangel. Also, they cited a “gift from God”.
According to the account of an unidentified victim, the family of psychics would ask for large sums of money which, according to them, would be used as a temporary sacrifice for their intentions. And when the prayer or request has been answered, she went on to say, that the money was promised to be returned.
Still from another victim, she said that she was asked to buy one of the psychics a very expensive watch in order for her to “turn back time and bring back love to the woman”.
When police searched the properties of the family, they were able to seize a Fort Lauderdale home, gold coins amounting to almost $2 million, and around 12 expensive cars.
Now, all these people will have to do is to “see” if they can still come out of jail.
