Some experts say that “fortune telling fraud,” is really a prevalent phenomenon.

“The spiritualists, or psychics, frequently gain the entire confidence and trust of the victims by performing common magic methods — bloodstream which comes from an egg, water that turns black or red, needles that emerge from a tomato — to bamboozle their victims into believing in the presence of the alleged darkness, negativity, evil, curse. Inevitably, a self-announced spiritualist, or psychic, will declare that through spiritual or psychic forces, she or he alone can vanquish the darkness, negativity, evil, curse by ‘cleansing’ the sufferers money, the alleged reason for the alleged curse.”
