Once again, a psychic has bilked someone out of hundreds of thousands of dollars.
More after the jump.
Miller has been charged with grand theft in an amount over $150,000, Gibbons said.
The charges allege that she obtained almost $450,000 from a San Jose woman between August 2004 and March 2005.
After reading the victim’s fortune, Miller told the victim that she and some of her family members were cursed and that she needed to pay money to have the evil cleansed, Gibbons said.
She also verbally threatened the victim, according to the charges.
The victim gave Miller about $350,000 in cash and another $95,000 in goods and services.
Ain’t she lovely? Inside and out.
In other news, Sylvia Browne still cavorts merrily around the country, charging hundreds of dollars per hour to tell people how they can relate better to their guardian angels and lying to parents about where their missing children are. The moral of the story: taking hundreds of thousands of dollars from one person is grand theft. Taking hundreds of millions of dollars from many people is perfectly okay.
