A Fort Lauderdale family of psychics, accused of operating a $40 million fraud on their clients, has set up an online legal defense fund and is using Twitter to ask celebrities — and anyone else — to help them out financially.
Matriarch Rose Marks and nine family members and associates are legally banned from working as fortune tellers or spiritual healers while the federal criminal case is pending, so the family has taken to the Internet to try to raise money.
On Twitter, they’re literally reaching for the stars with dozens of personal appeals tweeted to celebrities such as Oprah, Donald Trump, Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton, money expert Suze Orman and even televangelist Joel Osteen.

I would guess the “stars” would do well to steer VERY CLEAR of associating with the Marks’ who are currently the most notorious psychic family in the country, accused of crimes far and wide. (See related posts shown below.)

Can’t help but wonder how they see their own future… Outlook must not be so good.
Indeed it was not a positive outlook, their twitter account was suspended. For poor grammar and nonexistent punctuation? Thanks @krelnik.
