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.
