Customer Question

I was a victim of a psychic fraud. I gave over $7,200.00 dollars to protect me for harm. I was even taken to a store to purchase gift card in the amount she wanted because I had no money for that day. It was charged to my credit card so their was no waiting
on her part.

I'm very sorry for this, but if you met this individual in person then that is a good thing. Often these fraudsters are online or in the mail and they are located in a foreign country. So in that case it is very difficult to stop them. In this case, you have the person, go to your local police department and file a complaint. There is a good chance you could recover some funds in this situation.
You can also report this to the federal government, go to and file a complaint with the FTC.
