Nancy Marks, a psychic from Lafayette, Colorado, was arrested for fraud after telling clients their “money [was] evil” and that she’d take their cursed cash so “the money would suffer” instead. Marks made at least $290,000 using this scam.
Marks – who runs a psychic reading business creatively named Psychic Readings – warned victims that malicious spirits were haunting their bank accounts and that she would take the evil assets off their hands. Her scam would’ve continued had a whistleblower named Linda not contacted police. According to Linda,
For each evil spirit that was supposedly around me, she told me a certain number of thousand of dollars that I needed to bring to her […] She told me if I didn’t give her more and more money, that something terrible would befall my mother.
