Maria Duval
The Psychic Scammer

Fellow psychics ...
Who is Maria Duval and why is she besmirching our industry?

Lots of dark clouds in today's blogs...

We know there is a positive and a negative side to most things including the psychic industry - from the crystal ball gypsies who promise you things if you give them money to burn candles to those who are legitimately there to help you through the most difficult situations in your life - and the wide spectrum of psychics you meet along the way. Many people who see one psychic will visit others either to hear the answers they seek or to find out more as each psychic brings a piece of the puzzle using their own tools and abilities. It has taken years to legitimize the psychic industry as it merges with healing and helping people evolve. I'm sure we'll weather this storm also.

It's one of the world's longest-running cons. Hundreds of millions of dollars stolen from some of the world's most vulnerable people -- the sick, the elderly and the poor -- who all thought they had found a savior in a mysterious woman named Maria Duval. It has claimed more than 60 times the number of victims of Madoff's Ponzi scheme. With millions of people affected from the United States to Japan, federal investigators say it would be hard to find another case of consumer fraud that has hurt more people. It all centers around a mysterious French psychic named Maria Duval. In letters, interviews and Internet videos seen around the globe, Duval says she has had visions of the world exploding and humans living in space. She claims to have successfully predicted election results, forecast winning lottery numbers and helped police investigate crimes. She says she even found the missing dog of movie star Brigitte Bardot.
