Scam Description

Psychic who lures you in with low-hanging fruit of cheap readings, and then slowly moves you up the chain. I was told after a palm reading that I needed to do a “color reading” to uncover elements of my past that would help inform how I can unlock positive energy (or something). I’ve never done a psychic reading before and I was genuinely curious, so I thought “why not.” When I returned for the results, I was then fed a story about how a former partner of my mother’s had become jealous of her and put a negative energy on her before I was born, and that this negative energy was now affecting my sexual chakra. This woman had tried meditating over many different materials, but none of them were going to help me – the only materials that would work were gold and platinum (how convenient). What did I need to do? Fork over $1500 for a 6-week spiritual cleansing. Normally this treatment would be $4k – so I was getting a steal – because some of the materials were left over from a past client. Conveniently, she would be able to put aside all clients for the next 6 weeks just to focus on me. I needed to decide within 48 hours because “the seed would only remain frozen for that long.” I don’t even know what that is supposed to mean. Absolutely ridiculous.
