Woman gives $10,000 to Psychic for ‘Cleansing’
A police report released claimed that practicing psychic April Stevens of Harahan, Louisiana, allegedly told a woman she suffered from a potentially deadly curse that could only be lifted by “cleansing” $10,000 of the woman’s money.
The woman, who was in fear of the curse, raised the money, which Stevens promised to give back once it was purified. When the woman asked for her cash back after several months, Stevens allegedly told her that the money was not cleansed yet.
The woman got tired of waiting for the ‘purification’ to be over and complained to police who arrested Stevens in late February.
Stevens is still liable for theft even though the victim willingly gave up the cash.
