They say that money is the root of evil and one psychic has taken this message literally. Nancy Marks, a psychic from Lafayette, Colorado, was arrested for fraud after telling clients their “money [was] evil” and that she’d take their cursed cash so “the money would suffer” instead. Marks made at least $290,000 using this scam.
Apparently she told clients that Vigo the Caprathian was exercising demonic possession over their bank accounts. Well frankly, if people are that gullible then they probably deserve to be ripped off. There again, Nancy does look particularly menacing so I wonder what level of persuasion was used. She is alleged to have told one victim that if she did not pay up then something terrible would befall her mother.
