Psychic Peaches Stevens has allegedly scammed a Florida woman for P136,000. After over a year of search, the psychic was finally arrested and sent to Orange County Jail on January 11.
According to the victim, Priti Mahalanobis, there had already been signs that Stevens is not a legitimate psychic as she claims to be. For one, she was told by Stevens to stuff 11 pieces of $100 bills into an envelope along with 11 names of her relatives. She then followed this and put these things under her bed in the aim of quelling the evil spirits that were disturbing their family. All these were according to Stevens.
On another instance, Stevens asked Mahalanobis to buy seven tabernacles at $19,000 each that were used to “vanquish the negativity, curses and evil spirits that plagued her family”, according to the report.
On the Facebook account of Mahalanobis, she wrote on her wall, “Thousands of people get defrauded of millions of dollars each year. I want to put an end to this so that nobody else will be victimized by these ruthless con artists again.”
When the Huffington Post’s Weird News Team tracked another psychic, Tiffany Johnson, she had this to say, “Grapefruits? Evil spirits in money? It’s bull crap. Whenever any lame-ass psychic wants additional funds – ‘I’ll remove a curse for $5,000, for example’ – bells, whistles and red flags should be going off. A real psychic wants to give you tools so that you can make your own life better. They shouldn’t want you to buy anything externally, especially from the psychic.”
According to news, Stevens posted bail of $22,000 but she will not be able to tell fortunes until the case is resolved.
