Malaysian woman wins case against clairvoyant and accomplice

Woman conned out of RM1.6mil by ‘clairvoyant’ wins case – World Updates | The Star Online.

A woman who lost more than S$650,000 (RM1.6mil) after being persuaded to part with it by a Thai fortune teller has won her case before the Court of Appeal.

Estate agent Sarah Tee was told by the clairvoyant that her husband was having an affair, and she should hide her funds from him in case they divorced.

Acting on the fortune teller’s advice, she gave S$608,700 (RM1.5mil) to renovation contractor Andy Pang, who promised to invest it for her in China.

She never saw the money again. Worse still, she later had to give Mr Pang another S$50,000 (RM125,000) after he blackmailed her, threatening to tell her husband that they were having an affair.

Gee, what a mess. She first lost the case but won on appeal. It’s another case of those who willingly prey on people’s emotions and fear to extort thousands of dollars off them.

    What am I going to say? What should the “clairvoyant” have seen?
