Read the name below out loud.
This is yet another one of these psychic scams where people fall for the “cursed” ploy. But this story quotes a “real” psychic. Read on…
Cindy and Nick Uwanawich are accused of operating an unlicensed psychic business known as The Psychic Door in Crestline.
According to investigators, Cindy Uwanawich told one person that a spirit was bringing negative energy into the person’s life and threatening the safety of the person’s family.
The alleged victim said the psychic claimed she could get rid of the spirit if the person gave her nine pennies, nine nickels, nine dimes, nine quarters and $9,000 for nine days.
Detectives later identified seven other people who claimed to be victims of the Uwanawiches. Their losses reached a combined total of more than $238,000.
Police believes there might be even more victims. Bail is set at $500,000 each.
The owner of psychicgirl website says you REALLY should check on a psychic before using them. We agree. On the first part. As for the second, don’t ever use them anyway.
“Just because someone says they are psychic, doesn’t mean they see all and know all,” she says. Nifty out you gave yourself there.
