I could joke that “we need honest psychics”. But does this mean sanity is prevailing? Story here.
US ‘psychic’ Cynthia Miller jailed for $1.2 million fraud
A FEMALE “psychic” who admitted she defrauded over a million dollars from clients — including a mentally ill man who was hearing voices — has been sentenced to nearly three and a half years in prison.
Cynthia Miller, 36, who ran the Astrology Life store in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, was the last of nine family members sentenced for their roles in a psychic fraud conspiracy that federal prosecutors said fleeced more than $US20 million ($21.6 million) from clients all over the world.
Miller, who advertised as a psychic and “life coach”, admitted that she claimed she could communicate with spirits and had the power to remove curses and negativity from her clients’ lives.
She told customers that money or valuables they gave her would either be burned, sacrificed or donated to charity or churches. She made $1.2 million from the fraud.
