Psychic scam manipulated woman via church and faith

Interesting trend, psychics connect to God and pray with clients.

 Mid-State Woman Says Psychic Scammed Her Out Of $200,000

Virginia Morris was at her lowest point in 2007 when she turned to a Gallatin psychic and lost $180,000 in a scam.

Morris visited Evonna Pebble Williams for a simple psychic reading, but said it was the start of a relationship that lasted more than four years.

“She wanted me to keep coming back because she felt she could help me,” Morris said.

According to Morris, Williams told her she needed cash to do work at her church and that work would bring peace and happiness to Morris’ life.

Morris admits she was brainwashed and afraid to tell her family about it. She calls the psychic “convincing” and “the best actress you have ever seen”. She gave thousands of dollars in cash and credit card convenience checks. Morris was told that money was held at a local church as part of the work Williams was doing. When her husband found out, he went to the police. Williams is apparently still operating and the police are looking for others that may have been scammed.

It’s important to get these stories out for others who suspect they may be trapped in the same process of being strung along by a psychic. In this case, the psychic took advantage of Morris’ faith in God. It just gets lower and lower, the depths they will go.

    My friend only lost $40,000. However she committed suicide afterward. Psychics are scum.

    I don’t see anything in the story that states whether Williams actually had a church or not. If she has an actual church (even if it’s out of the back of a 7-11) it may be very difficult to recover any of the “donations”. Founding your own church is a great way to hide money.

    Yes, there was not detail on that so it’s unclear where the money went.

    I know this woman personally.She had been through some traumatic life events. you never know what life events will do to you. This evonna williams ? Marks was a person who preyed on the weak and learned how to manipulate the broken .This lady is a good person who was brain washed. If you did your homework you would see that there is thousands of people, rich and intelligent ,young and old who get scammed . People tend to be ashamed and afraid to come forward. I think this should be brought to the public”s attention on how dangerous psychic”s can be.
