An Auburn psychic is facing a lawsuit from a dissatisfied customer who claims she bilked him out of more than $30,000 while claiming to pray for his relatives.
Abraham Char contends a woman identified in court documents only as “Mama Tanya” tricked him into providing her with thousands of dollars. Prior to the loan, Char’s attorney said in the civil complaint, the woman gained Char’s trust and abused it during 2010 and 2011.
“’Mama Tanya wrongfully induced Abraham Char to provide her with monies in return for her representation that she would pray for his relatives claimed by her to be suffering,” attorney Charles S. Hamilton III told the court.
Filing the civil suit Sept. 5 in King County Superior Court, Hamilton contended “Mama Tanya” has refused to repay more than $30,000 Char lent her to secure an investment.
The psychic promised Char he would be able to reclaim the money at any time, Hamilton contended. But he said she has since ignored repeated requests to return Char’s money.

Yep. People still fall for this stuff. The cover of “psychic” is so often used to hide serious fraud and theft. It’s SO common. There will always be those who trust too much and are desperate for help. It’s very sad. All we can do is get the word out that this is happening and DON’T YOU be the next victim. Tell your friends.
