Robert said...

Just received a letter today,
(5-15-06). Talks of a Nicos Daskalos, greek spiritualist, who wants to help me with 7 scrolls. Just $7 + $3 shipping. Nice greek letter I'm having transcribed by my Greek friends tonight. Guess $10 isn't as bad as some "gotit".
She is in Everett, MA - USA NOW
How can we get word out?

I got the 7 parchments too......SCAM

I got the letter about last week,but never got around to doing anything about it.Now after just a little check of this and the "Greek friend" of her's,I'm willing to bet that those 7 scrolls are very nice copies of the same for everyone,except they will insert you name where needed.Robert I wish you well and think you might get a laugh when you get the letter translated by your Greek friends. Hmmm the $10.00 is a nice "carrot" to get your intrest and go for it.So if anyone else has more info on this please do the rest of the world a favor and tell us how much you can about this.thanks!!!!

USA, Virginia resident got the letter on 6/23/06. It sounds good but is nothing but @&%$^%. This blog gave me the heads up before I was ripped off. We need to put together a special agency to take care of people like that because I get at least 4 e-mails a day from scammers and 3 letters a week in the mail.

Just yesterday 7-25-06 my elderly next door neighbor gave me the well written letter from Nikos Daskalos to translate for her (even though she already paid $10,00 for the translation). I'm Greek Cypriot and Greek is my native language. The moment I started reading it out loud to my American husband and also fluent in Greek (an English Prof.) we decided that this a form letter. The funny part is that a whole page was missing even though the pages are numbered (another clue that this was a scum). Anyway I told my sweet neighbor not to buy into this and also that I would "Googled" Nicos Daskalos because I have never heard of him. VOILA!! I am shocked and saddened to see how many people have been scummed.

Today, Aug 18th. I recieved a letter from Maria Duval and her Greek Spiritalist. I felt like it wqs BS and was glad I googled it. We need to keep getting the word out! How sad that people will do things like this to scam others, by claiming to "help"

I just got Maria's letter today, 8/19/06. I did not trust it immediately due to the fact they act like they know me. I also got a letter from doctor Marissa Von Trapp, predicting good and not so good days in my future. She asks for $25 to stop future devastating moments from happening. Her name is on the net also for scams. They use fear and guilt if you don't return the letter or contact them. Such cruelty for low self gain. Beware of con artisits. Maria Duval address is 27 Norwood Street #402, everett, Ma 02149-2709 and von Trapp's is 485 S robertson Blvd. #3, Beverly Hills, Ca 90211

hey guys guess what? i got the same exact letter too !!!! and i finally figured it out . guess where maria duval got our names from!!!!!?????? i bet every single one of you ordered kevin trudeau's "natural cure's" book ( right??!!!) . he too is a scam artist that works with other scam artists and they all make money off of us!!!!!!!!! so there you go !!!

Sully18 said...

I got the letter from Maria Duval,and it said the same thing as all the rest of yours.
AI thought that it was kind of fishy when she said that this Nicos just happened to be there when she noticed my name and address.He immediately said that "this is a spiritual man who has had much sufferung...dadadadada....Hell ,just about everyone I know has had much suffering."Life is difficult."--Scott Peck from "The Road Less Travelled."Good book.
Anyway,another way to spot these scoundrels is to notice that each time you come to the end of a page they told me "Daniel,please go to the next page." Damn white of them.Like I don`t know to go to the next page.Duh!
I did get some gifts when I read the comments about the scam on the net.It`s good to see good people sharing about their experience withscammers.Peace to all of you

Just recived a letter today from Maria Duva with a letter from Nicos Daskalos written in Greek attached. The letter tells me I will be winning big amounts of money. I just have to send $10 to receive 7 parchments which will bring me very large amts of money.
Thought it was a scam so looked up her name on google and sure enough it is a very big scam.

Got the letter from Maria Duval today. A couple of search results later brought me here, the letter and offer are now in the bowels of my shedder. Incredible the timing; I'm actually going through difficult times.

my husband received the same letter today, he was sure it was a scam of sorts. I found out for sure by researching on the net. Praise The Lord. RA in tx.

Rachel~NE said...

I got the Maria Duval and Dr. Von Trapp letters the same day! What I want to know is...if it's such a personal letter why then is it computerized? And if the Greek spiritualist got the scrolls for free then why is he charging for them? Thanks for this site to help all the "easy" people.

What an idiot...........
But as famous people have always said: "there's a sucker born every minute" and "a fool and his money are soon parted". If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is! My Marie Duval letter immediately went into the "round file" (garbage can). I "Googled" the greek name and found this blog. Thanks to all who are smarter than they are!

Guess what.....8/22/06....Maria found S. Florida. She must have some data base.
HA..HA to her....so do we!!!! Hail to the world of computers to verify what we know is true.

Hi, I just received my Maria Duvall letter, when it said she had been looking at some old files with my name and address on them, I was suspicious, as I have only been at this address for 7 months. Since I was sitting at my computer, I decided to type Nicos Daskalos in the search area. Thank you for keeping us informed of the ongoing scams. However, I did not purchase the before mentioned book.

To the lady looking for the address it is 27 Norwood Street #402 Everett, MA 02149-2109.

I also received the letters from Dr. Maria Von Trapp in Beverly Hills, CA and Maria Duval in Everett, MA on August 21st. Maria Duval talks about Nicos Daskalos. Dr. Von Trapp says to beware of Deborah on November 6th,etc...Same #%&*!&#@#! with different name. And guess what, I also bought Kevin Trudeau's "Natural Cures" book. What a scam. Who gave him the right to sell our names!!! - I do not remember signing anything or authorizing anybody to contact me for other offers!!! Major rip-off. I hope somebody catches up to them soon. While you work hard for your money - I can't believe these scam artists out there that make money of someone's misery...

Hello all,
I must be the most Blessed man on the planet.I receive at least 2 letters a week from many so called psychics who feel I am a chosen one who is here to reedeem mankind and they will show me how by sending them money!
To tell you the truth, they all feel I am down on my kuck and need financial help,where as the truth be known I am well off and have a great life,given to me by the creator of us all.
Put your cash in your pocket and ask Christ for your spiritual guidance and His Spirit will grant you all that you need. fall not into the prey of the wolves in sheep clothing all they do is pull you down with false hope.
Trust in God and your prayers will one day be answered if you have the faith to believe, it cost you nothing and the reward are forever.
Be Blessed, Study His words and grow in truth to keep you from the parasites who prey on the gulliable.J.A.S.

Anonymous said...

I also recieved the same letter, but the reason I looked it up was because of the last page of her letter, the reqest letter, or whatever it is called. It said to write at the bottom in all caps, then she wanted birthday, time, and place all in your own handwriting. Then your signature, for what? Thanks for all your comments

Jeffrey said...

No, The Road Less Traveled is not a good book. It's a truly awful book written by a religious nutter, a book that essentially blames people for being sick.

As for "prais[ing] the lord", you would do better to praise Tim Berners-Lee, who made quick information retrieval possible through the World Wide Web.

Debra said...

I also received the Maria Duval/Nicos Daskalos letter. Looks like they have reached Nevada. They missed my date of change. They said Oct 25. Actually ocuring 1st week of Sept. But hey a few more sheets of paper to make into papercrete

Hi and thanks for the site, I'm in Australia and have been getting mail from MARIE CALLAS, obviously another alias for whoever is behind MARIA DUVAL, and now have been offered the 7 parchments from her good friend NICOS DASKALOS. I will now not even waste my time opening them. Regards from down under.

Hello everyone. Today 9/20/06 I too have received my letter from this Maria Duval with the promises of reches and all sorts of bells and whistles. I have reported her to the better BBB of Massachusttes(please foregive the spelling) and have informed the staff at the UPS store of what these people are doing. If it wasn't for people like yourselves and the feed back you give I don't think many of us would be informed as well as we are now. Keep up the good work on staying alert and let's hope someone puts an end to these degenerate people out for the fast buck....

I have received tons of mail from Maria Duval. I am totally getting sick of it all, and now I am receiving mail from The Angel Foundation, Pascale Zoe of the Astrological Research Foundation, Nicos Daskalos-the Greek Spiritualist, De Monaco Heritage Fund etc. I sent away, initially for an astological forecast which I did receive, but it took months to receive it. Now, I am getting literally tons of mail, from her and all these other agencies, which I have all individually checked out on the internet and they all report to be scams!!! Obviously, since I am not responding to Ms. Duval, she has sold or given my name to others. How can one stop this incessant mailing from happening? None of them provide a phone number or E mail address either, so you cant contact them, only by mail. How inconvient!!! Anybody else got any ideas how to stop the mailing other than moving???!!!!

This scam is also running in Australia, although it's MARIE CALLAS, along with Nicos Daskalos ! Same thing....7 Parchments, etc etc etc. The free reply envelopes are addressed to : Marie Callas

I too am getting mail from maria duval. I just got a computer,so I am checking her out, but I am a little late.I have been sending her money since June/06 so she has taken me for a lot.I caught on to her today because i got a letter from a Marie Valmont and she said told me the same things word for word that miss duval told me. I learned the hard way.

Kimberly said...

My dad got this same letter. He is 80yrs. old and he beleives this lady to be true. I have tried to convince him that she is a scam but he is still willing to send her money. If anyone got the greek letter translated could you send it to me at my email address? Maybe if he can read the letter in translation he will beleive. Thanks stormie@classicnet.net

I have gotten letters from Maria Duval and the last one I got she sent me a small picture of herself and she was wanting me to send her a picture or some of my hair in a green envelope plus $37.50 + $7.50 for special handling and first-class shipping, for A TOTAL OF ONLY $45. I have been shredding her letters and I'm not going to be sending her any information about me or my e-mail address. I SEE IN EVERYONE FURTURE ONLY WHAT YOU MAKE OF IT. THAT IS FREE. BEWARE OF MARIA DUVAL'S!

I got my letter 10-03-06! I always want to think the best of people! Plus I'd love to have all she offers to me! But i'm cheep and don't want to burn a penny so I looked to see if she was on the net. Here you all are! I got the $10.00 letter for the 7 letters. I'm going to actually send the Letter back to her! With a note that says, "With the knowledge I will recieve from you when I win the lottery like you project I'll give you a cut! Thanks" Lets just see what really comes back!? I'm so sad when people sends letter with intising stuff like that!

I have read all the letters and comments about this woman and I did sent in my 10.00 but I called the Bank for a stop payment, this sucks, isn't there any honest people out there anymore?????
It just made my day!

the address the scam uses for america is the ups mail box service with her box number
Maria Duval, 27 Norwood Street #402, Everett, Ma 02149-2709

UPS Store
27 Norwood Street
Everett, MA 02149
(617) 389-4357

So their mail drop is a UPS
mail box service.
Trying to stay out of the Federal
scrutiny is my guess!
I just chunk them in the trash!
Cost them envelopes and stamps and paper.

next to the river just before the railroad bridge to an empty unused very old parking lot.
Upon more research I found (fictional) Michael Cohen, has used this same NYC Transit Authority address to registrar at least ten other com and org sites.
I wonder if its legal or if it’s a criminal act to registrar sites on line falsely using the City of New York property address as your own.
The money is being sent to Maine to an affiliated UPS mail drop. I wonder if the UPS corporate office is aware they are housing a criminal operation? I wonder if the city of Everett is aware there is illegal scamming going on in their city. I wonder if the post office is aware they are delivering scammed funds, it would seem the post office in Everett should be made aware what is going on!
I wonder if they are paying taxes to the city of Everett, state of Maine?.
Just seems to me there is all sorts of places they are vulnerable if someone one wanted to take this information and run with it. I looked it up.
Here it is! Have fun or not!

I live in Goulburn, Australia. I received in the post a scam letter from Marie Callas, so I got on the net to find info about her. I thought seeing as she has to pick up the cost of postage I would use the reply paid envelope (to the same address in Singapore previously mentioned) and sent her some envelope sized peices of cardboard and a note to test her "psychic" abilities.

8 months ago i also got one from a secret noveau(?)tech society guaranteeing me riches beyound description, in a 2000 maybe more, year old book. i was to pay for reprinting the book and postage, maybe $45 be careful.

Hi well my husband has just recived one of Maria Duval's letters and yes it says the same thing everyone elses does. But i guess you all did not take the time out to read the small print on the side of the last page, if you would have you wouldeve noticed it has been copywrited who is stupid enough to fall for a letter that says its just for you but is still copywrited DUH!!! Hope you all can notice these things next time. And for those of you who think its not far to have scams running then all i can say is get over it and welcome to the world today just be smarter than the average bear and keep your money in your pockets

Well, well -- and I thought I was "speshul"!! Great comments y'all. Maria will not be making a dime off me!! Ya -- I did buy Kevin's book -- I do believe that there are more natural ways to cure many of the illnesses that are present in our lives today, but of course I didn't realize that he himself is a F*$#*&! scam artist too (just like he claims the medical professionals to be). How ironic!! To all who are doing well -- fantastic!! And to those who feel down at this time.....just hold tight to your visions and hopes of a better life, and know that the Universe does support that -- you "are" able to change things -- hold tight to your pilot light inside....it's always there. Cheers.

Sorry to all who have lost out to Maria Duval, Callas whatever this scammers name is. I was scammed for months, looking back I should have realised but I was having financial difficulties, as you all do too. I thought you'd all like to know this person has other scams too. Mostly weight loss, erectile problems and lotteries. THEY ARE ALL SCAMS, DON'T SEND ANY MONEY OR PERSONAL INFORMATION. Here's hoping that the law will catch up with them as so many people who can't afford it have lost more money than they can afford.

I'm glad to see people checking the internet before sending money to these idiots.
I got the letter today (11-15-06)
from this Maria Duval person and just knew it was to good to be real.
BIG SCAM, so don't send money to these people. Check the internet first or you local police or proper authorities for these type of scams.

I, too, rec'd Maria Duval/Nicos Daskalos letters just the same as everyone here has said. I'm in AZ. I just want to say thank you for this info about this nefarious scam. I was skeptical because it just sounded to good to be true. My heart and prayers go out to those who have been exploited by this criminal.
Something should be done to stop these scammers from

My friend recieved a letter today from Maria. He asked me to look her up. We were all laughing about it but didnt realized how big of ring she has goin. Well...has anyone reported her to a postmaster or maybe the police? Just an idea. He did not by that book by that man. But he does get more junk mail than anyone I have ever known.

YO!! The (robber) Duvall is all over us GREEKS like white on rice.I didn't even HAVE to pay 10 dollars to get it translated! She DID ask for 10 dollars to get me the parchmes. Thank WHOMEVER for the INTERNET, because I was gonna send in my 10 bucks just for some Indian literature and would've been sort of happy with a little inspiration---even if I didn't win a million dollars or whatever---but NOW I don't even want to do THAT!!!! I didn't buy the natural food book--I have no idea how she found me or how she "knew" to go off and: "nuetralize my affecting Saturnian influences" and all that crap.If she knows--or that Greek knows---about my "saturnine Influences" and my "Astral Configurations"---WHY IN THE @*% DO THEY NEED MY DATE AND TIME OF BIRTH!!!?? Scammers often get your info from OTHER scammers---some scam one could've fallen pray to at some time in the past.But THIS Greek will be sticking to the o'l SOCRATES!!! BIG TIME!!!

Hello,
Just got my letter from Maria Duval and the greek letter from Nicos. Wow What a deal!
I used the internet to find this web site thanks. I was not going to send them anything, nor had I even thought it might be true, having read many of your informative quips and comments I thank you for being there.

Hello,
Everyone and thank you for posting on this web site. I too recieved the samer letter from Maria & Nicos. My first question was why would my name be in a file on her desk this raised suspusion. There are such evil people out there trying to scam people out of their hard earned money. I believe as one of the other writers said they get your names from other scamers like Saint Matthew's Churches" out of Tulsa, OK. We say that something told me to go to the computer I believe that my heavenly Father spoke to me and sadi don't be stupid nothing is that simple keep up the good work

Hello to all!!!! Well I am one of the suckers who fell for it.I sent 35 dollars for my lucky numbers.It has been a couple of weeks now and nothing sent to me yet.But she sure cashed the check.Is there any way we can nail this B____!!!!!If so,we need to team up and nail her ass to the cross.

Hello,
Just happened to have the forsight to Google Nicos Daskalos and found all this great info! I'm in Massachusetts, and got this letter this morning, from Maria Duval. What I'm doing is printing some of this blog (the ones without names) and I'm gonna mail it to HER with a little "note" telling the Beaahch that her gig is up. Might not stop her, but it sure does make me feel pretty good that I didn't get scammed for the $10. And I didn't buy Kevin Trudeau's book either, so I don't know where she got my name from.
Thank you.

pak said...

My husband was the target of "Maria Duval" and her inspired Greek friend, Nicos. Best way to handle these letters is to contact the Postal Inspection Service for your area. They will ask you to forward the actual letter w/envelope (so don't destroy the evidence). The authorities need whatever material you may have received in order to pursue their these scam artists. Needless to say, these scammers will simply use another name, another gimmick and move on. So please be alert and always do your research before writing that check. Stay safe!

Thank you for the update on the Maria Duval scam. She took me for for $40.00 along with a little Picture of myself and a piece of hair. I was almost going to send another $30.00 for 7 seances. What a Con.

Got my letter today also from 'Marie Callas' and like all of you, I have been down on my lucky. It's not a matter of 'falling' for this scam guys, it truly is a matter of wanting so desperately to believe that you don't think logically. I'm glad I googled them, or I would have been their next victim. Don't beat yourselves up if you have been caught out.

OMG, i got the letter couple days ago didn't believe it for a second for i have received that kind of stuff before, the rest asked for more money thought. Decided to check it out online, and was completely right. Thanks for having this blog.

Anonymous said...

I rec the letter from Maria and Nicos and I too wanted to research more. Scam, Scam, Scam is the only thing attached to her name but her letter mentioned certin things that I just can't ignore. I was approached by an Indian in a hair store about 3 weeks ago that told me that I was a very lucky person and 2007 was going to bring great things but not today.I had convinsed myself that the 14 Million dollar lottery being drawn that night belonged to me. I really convinced myself of it. I didn't tell him, I joked when he said that 2007 will bring good luck "Are you sure it's not today" he looked me in the eye and said no not today but next year" He mentioned details about my life that scared me but before we could talk more the store owner noticed him and ran him off. He was gone when I left the store. The letter sent by the Maria Duval's orgination just left me with hope that maybe just maybe this could be real. Maybe. My life is a total disaster so 10.00 isn't much of a gamble for me so I'll give it a shot. Call me crazy after my detailed research on Maria and Nicos but I've got nothing to loose except 10.00. For me it's worth a shot. Wish me luck.

Hi, i have just received my letter from this greek person, but through marie callas, i was stupid enough to send her $80 a month ago,i was an idiot just thought i would try and find out more about this greek person and what did i find that they have scammed alot of people including me how dumb of me to believe her in the first place

Anonymous said...

No,no,no. You all have it wrong. For you see Marie (good friend of mine), said that my life will change over the course of the next few days.
I am still waiting.6/28/06
For you see "my case is so exceptionable that she is going to send me my grand prediction of my future revealed!" quote unquote.
Funny thing you guys,since I've been communicating with her it seems to me that I can now predict the furture, also. In fact I'm having a vision right now. In my vision I can see myself having an extra $35.00 a month in my checking accout.
So you see she was right after all.
BEAAATCH

Thanks you all

Well people... Maria Duval has reached New Zealand. I received a few letters today, explaining how special I was and how my life was going to change in the week 14 Dec to 21 Dec 06, how I stood out from all of the rest, that I have strong psychic abilities. I was just about to send away the 3 lucky squares and my $60, when I thought this is just to good to be true...I feel so blessed that I followed my gut instinct to google her. Thank God!

But I have been scamed before by a lottery letter.Funny thing is I recieved the same exact letter two weeks later. Fool me once shame on you Fool me twice shame on me. NOT AGAIN STUPID BITCH AINT GONNA GET MY MONEY!!!!!!!!!!

Dear All,

Last night I arrived to find this letter from Maria Duval. It said it had some info for me from a Nicos Daskalos, even a copy of the letter from him in Greek alphabet, which she had been kind enough to translate for me. To make a long story short, she wanted $10 for 7 parchment papers Nicos had entrusted to Maria for me, plus 3 for shipping etc. Well, this morning I put her name in the internet and here I am! I found this wonderful site, and after reading all the stories about this woman, I decided to help out. It really makes me mad that folks can get away with playing with peoples lives like this. So I used some knowledge I have to find this woman. She is using a Post Box at a UPS store in Everett MA. I called them, and the cheeky woman who answered at the store told me she did not care what this woman did. She said she takes ID to rent the boxes and people can do what they want. I am going to report this to the US postal Inspectors, It galls me to no end to think people can get away with this. For any one who is interested, just go to a website called whitepages.com and use the reverse address look up and you will locate all business addresses at the location you are searching for. Her address and telephone number is:

The Ups Store
27 Norwood St
Everett, MA 02149
(617) 389-4357

I say all who have been scammed by this woman should call this Ups store and make their life a living hell.
Best of luck to you all!

I received my letter and smelled a scam right away. It is a shame that people can prey upon other people like this but I guess that's life. Anyway thanks to the world's greatest invention the computer I am still $10.00 richer than I would have been. Merry Christmas!!!

Oh man, I can't believe how many people she has made money off of, not to mention, where the hell did she get all the information!!!! I started receiving her letters back about July 2006 and haven't stopped getting them since. I foolishly made the mistake of sending her $10.00, got a talisman and some other stuff...absolutely none of it works...DAHH!! OK call me naive but I figured it out...man what a #)^(H . Now my problem is how the hell do I stop the mailings??

You're naive.

I just wanted to say just for fun my husband and I sent ten the first time but it was one of the play tens and still she sent me the stuff. I am talking about maria duval so acualy I got her. The play ten looked real but was not. Every two days I get more letters from her and they are all the same talking about it showes in my cards I am to come into money and it always says how good she is that is a big way to tell it is a scam also no one glotes that much about themselves in each letter befor asking for money. After her 121th letter to me I got one from gardian angels and they are also a big scam. I got one from maria rose and in my emails every 2 to 4 days I get emails always asking for my help with some type of money thing so girls and guys watch for anythiung asking or relating to money that is being asked or offered so check it out first.Got bless all of you and may he protect you.

I am really disappointed(and nieve) to hear I've wasted my money and borrowed money that will be hard to repay since I won't be winning the lottery as promised by Maria. The letters came just as I had become depressed over my financial situation. They actually gave me hope that my life would change for the better. Should have known-----

Thank you all.

Hi, I have read all comments. I have been getting letters from all types of so called psychics now for at least a year. Mainly from Maria Duval. The same Nicos Daskalos, etc. Each letter I write back and tell her after I win the lottery or this money comes from someone in Europe, or a long lost kin, than I will send her #1000.00 instead of $10.00 I also tell her if she really knew about me as she says she does that she would know that I was strictly on SS. and if she really cared and was so concerned about me as she says than she would make all this good stuff happen to me, and than get her money. She still keeps writing and completely ignores my letters to her. Now today, I got a letter from "De Monaco Heritage Fund", That is why I got on the internet. I have gotten letters from the angels, or whoever they are. I fell the first time to the tech society, I have gotten all kind of lottery letters from singapore, supposeably. They just keep coming. I got one that said one of my ancestors knew Nastradomis, and that I was suppose to receive a piece of a comet to bring me riches and happiness for the rest of my life. And than there is a Lisa and Rose, Has anyone got a letter yet from a man by the name of Chris from Switzerland? He also mentions something about Nostradomas. Let's see, I got a letter from the SEER, A David somebody. I cannot remember them all because I finally threw them all in the garbage. I had a stack of the scams. And they are so stupid, they forget who they wrote to, and you find yourself getting two letters from the same person that is identical from the first letter. I have wrote maria several times and told her what the bible says about people like her. And let her know how cruel it is to prey on the poor. And I am divorced, disabled, and trying to care for my disabled (mentally) daughter, How do they know the people who are struggling in life. I feel like crying when I get these letters, especially the one today that told me I had won a grant. I knew it was too good to be true to, and you want it to be true so bad. I would like to meet everyone of them face to face. If you have to pay money to get money, than it is definately a scam!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Yup! I got one today Jan 5, 2007. Seems the scammers are getting an early start in the year. I can't believe these fraud attempts keep going on in Canada. What is the RCMP doing about this stuff. You should flood Phone Busters with all the scams you get inthe mail.

To Whom it may concern:
I just thought I would share how I know my information was fished.

I signed up on line for a free astrology email reading.
I attached three MMM to my first name like maryMMM Example.
The hits asking for money addresed to that alias first name I know is from a scammer and identifies it orgins.
Orignated from the free email astrology site.
I suggest when using a FREE site
is 1st.Create an alias email (gmail or yahoo dump.
2nd create a fictious address;
3rd use your correct birth information to receive the FREE astrology email reading.

The lesson I learned years ago on the internet was nothing is free someone fines a way to turn a free service in to a paying cash cow i.e as in selling free reading information gathered to scammers.

I received a letter from Maria Duval and her punk a@@ greek friend about some kind of Wondrous Sphere of Wishes Pendant and she asked for 25 dollars which I sent about 2weeks ago and haven't received anything back .All I have to say is I wish I could meet her face to face because I would break her f###### jaw.To everybody that receives these letters they are scams and I didn't know that until today when I looked up her name .There are three things I do not gamble with my Money,my life,and my child. So she f##### up.

I'm glad I just googled her name. She is in New ZEaland at the moment and her address is:
Suite 375, 100a Pnosonby Road, Ponsonby, Auckland, New Zealand. I'm glad all I spent was an envelope and a postage stamp. Now I know what I'm in for after reading all your blogs.

Howdy, We live in Australia. Last night we recieved a letter from Marie Duval. She was concerned that my wife was not being rewarded with the luck she deserved. So she consulted a fiend of hers who just happened to see my wife's name on her desk. The friend of hers is an expert in analysing house waves. Of course it was the house that was causing the disturbance in her luck cycles. This Marie must be some cluey chick. Also I must be psychic as well. We moved out of that badly charged house 6 months ago thereby taking my poor wife out of harms way. Thank God the mail forwarding ends this week. Keep up the good work.

I have been getting letters from Maria Duval for quit some time. I never could put it together were my address was given to her. But after reading on here I did also order the natural cures book my Kevin Trudeau. I was supprised someone put that together but it does make sense now. The letters she is sending me are very vague and I also think it should be illegal to pray on unfortunate people.

Hello there! Thought i would share my comment. I live in the UK and received the letter a few days ago '20-01-07'.
Like alot i had a letter that talks of a Nicos Daskalos. Though it's not from a Maria Duval it's from a Marie Callas, show's what a scam it is, as they have chaged there name.
I also had a greek letter ect and asked for £30 for the 7 parchment. Well i had a very good idea it was a scam, so i went on google and checked things out and i cant belive how world wide it is or should i say.... not just in the UK. They just dont care on how it may effect people at all ages, Im 21 and im very ill and spend most of my time in hospital and i thought if it's not a scam then it may make my life much better than it is. It must stop so it wont get people's hopes up for any reason or case.
This is the address they used in the UK-

Hey All,
I get Maria's letters all the time. I enjoy reading fiction.

Has any one heard from a "Neelie" or a "Seleena Simone"? How about Sister Magdeline, Sister Elizabeth or Father David?

They are all predicting good stuff if I give them permission(and money, usually $30) to help me. If not I will be overcome by a terible evil presence they have seen behind me.

Steven King could use some of their story lines!!

All of you people are complete idiots for believing that some "magic scrolls" would change your life. You deserve to be ripped off if you were gullible enough to send this dumb bitch any of your money. The hilarious thing is that this Maria Duval is smarter then you people. She has your money.

Randwolf said...

I received the fraudulent De Monaco Heritage Fund letter today. I would just like to pass along a little tip I once read somewhere that has helped me in regard to these types of mailings. If you have really won or been awarded a sum of money in a sweepstakes or by grant or some other way, they will not notify you by an email or by a letter with a regular postage stamp on it (in this case, a presorted one!). Instead, they will send you a registered letter and you will have to sign for it.

OBVIOUSLY I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE RECEIVING THIS CRAP. I'M IN AUSTRALIA AND IT CAME FROM A MARIE CALLAS WHO WAS DOING SOME FILING AND CAME ACROSS AN OLD BIRTH CHART OF MINE (I HAVE NEVER SENT HER A BIRTH CHART) AND OH WHAT A COINCIDENCE, THIS GREEK NICOS DASKALOS JUST HAPPENED TO BE THERE AT THE TIME. WELL FOR JUST $30 THEY WOULD SENDE ME 7 PARCHMENTS THAT WOULD CHANGE MY LIFE FOREVER, WEALTH, LOVE, HAPPINESS, NO MORE MISERY.
PEOPLE BELIEVE THIS STUFF BECAUSE THEY ARE DOWN AT THE TIME OF RECEIVING IT AND THAT MAKES THEM VULNERABLE - WELL NOT ME FRIENDS, YES I'M GOING THROUGH SOME HARD TIMES RIGHT NOW BUT NOT HARD ENOUGH TO WANT TO SEND THESE SCAMMERS MY $30.00 - BETTER IN MY POCKET THAN THEIRS.

hi, I'm from Australia and have just received my letter from Marie Callas with "exciting news from her friend Nicos Daskalos" after a lot of 'stuff' it talks about the 7 parchments!! He may be correct in saying I am spiritually aware/open but also he forgot to look deeper and realise I listen with & to my innerself. I will not be sending money however I think I will be returning her letter with a small note to remind them of "what goes around comes around" and I am willing to take a chance on fate. Please forward warnings through your emails to avoid our Friends from being stung. Love & Light to You all, Donna.

I live in Canada and received 8 letters from Marie Duval within 1 month. Each letter asked for a different amount of money for specific readings. The cheapest amount being 59.99 plus all of the additional shipping charges. The letters target the one thing people want the most, which is money. What got to me was that they are preying on the vulnerability of people with regards to the threats of terrorist attacks, and how to keep yourself safe. I believe that is a disgrace as they are using the suffering of so many people, who's lives have been changed because of these attacks, to try to generate money. They should be ashamed of themselves. I wish something could be done to shut this down.

thanks for advising people about this scam, my friend just told me that her brother got this letter by mail and that it was wear that it was wrote about two weeks ago and mail does not take that long and she told me what it was saying and I told that that is some thing that might be hapenig to any one that it did not look right so I check the adress where it was from and it looks that it is a ups store but not a fisical adress so that is even more wear that is why I chek in here and look at thi, I am glad I did it thanks for the advise.

Marie Callas is currently preying on Aussies as at April 2 2007. She only writes to me on the day before payday I don't know how she knows,I guess she's psychic!She then gives me 48 hrs to hand over up to $160 at a time which I will not give her. I'm not sure how to stop the mail , does anyone know? this has been going on since Xmas 2006. even though I have not replied. Take it easy everyone and be very careful.

Greetings from Australia. Today i received another letter from Marie Callas from Singapore with the Nicos Daskalos letter asking for $60 promising 7 parchments which will solve all my problems forever! What crap! Don't be taken in! Thank God for the Internet and sites like this. She encloses a postage paid return envelope. We should all send back this envelop with CRAP written on a piece of paper enclosed and at least she will have to pay the postage. She keeps saying that I am poor etc and in reality I am doing okay, managing my life. So she's not much of a psychic, either.

I personally believe this is a bogus posting from the Marie Callas crook group.
I wondered how long it would take someone from their group to post here.
What a bold attempt to identify complainers on this board.
Consider the likely hood of someone they have successfully scammed getting money back.
This board is to believe after a lucrative scamming year supposedly a demand/complaint secured a return of $960.00.
I seriously doubt it.
A smaller time frame a less amount might be plausible for the sake of argument; but this supposed return is too long and too much.
• Anyone responding with a refund request after reading this posting will self identify themselves supplying current contact information?
• Think about it!
One person’s opinion!

Watch out there is another one on the way. Received a letter today from Marie Callas/Michel Sellier this time the reason that I do not have good luck, lots of money etc is because of my house. And I quote "It is confirmed that your house is emitting waves that totally contradict your own waves" They want me to buy for $40.00 AUD a POSITIVE WAVE HARMONISER which is placed in the correct corner of my house will then help me to win a huge amount of money in a lottery win.....You know there was a time when I was so down that I would have grasped on to anything in the hope of improving my life, these people prey on other peoples emotional problems.
This letter came from Singapore so be on the alert...

Please dont even read the silly letter. I sent money once years ago and nothing ever happened. I get about 4 or 5 letters a year saying why i have bad luck!!!

I just wanted to update the board.
It appears the board is having an affect. I haven't received any bogus offers/request for money from anyone for well over a month.
I think the heat is working.
They often lay off when it heats up and start again with the same list after a few months.
So when/if I receive their offers of service for cash. I will post.
Good Job! Keep the heat on!
REMEMBER:
Maria Duval,Nicos Daskalos/Marie Callas.
Are not real people and are very similar to a film role creation;
only existing on film or as in the con that offers a name/face/person.
In reality the multi layered namless criminals share and sell the names of people who have fallen for a con by giving money and may do so again.
That makes that person's data valuable.
Anyway right now the heat is on.
They are quiet.
GOOD JOB!

7/6/07 Minnesota. I have also received letters from ALL these people. IT IS B.S. So far I have had a pretty good laugh about it. Out of the dozens and dozens (literally) of letters I keep getting, I still open one occasionally, and funny thing, they all want $40 for something that will probably never help me. And a heads up to everyone, there are about 10 people that run this same scam - I can change your life for the better, and you'll have a better relationship, wealth, health, happiness - those people. I aplogize for not having all the names to refer, since they all also went into my circular filing cabinet. I, too have been taken for the $40 fee, and yet I'm not satisfied, I could have used that money to fill my half my gas tank. I just would like to know if anyone has idea how to stop these specific letters?

Hi, just received a Marie Callas letter from Singapore. Big hint here people - if it asks for money with an overseas address be wary - check the internet.
Also if you recieve any emails asking for help etc "to find someone/help someone/please forward this on" email - do everyone a favour and check it on the net. There are so many crap emails being forwarded which are all hoaxes. Sorry pet hate of mine. I have shut down a few by just doing a quick net search.

I receive on a daily basis at least 2 letters from Maria Duvall, and now every other super natural worker plus now dr.'s and numerology center,robert green,suzi yao,von trapp and so many more that I cannot even name them, all professing to be the real thing. Also the Rochelle and bethea jenner scam. even using the lord jesus and archangels to get to your inner emotions.

dHello everyone, I'm from Malaysia. I received a letter from Marie Callas yesterday. The good woman informed me that I could be one of the next lottery jackpot winners specifically on 16 November 2007. Isn't that absolutely great?? All I have to do is get a "Positive Wave Harmoniser" specially prepared by her good friend, Michel Sellier, a speacialist in House Study Science, Applied Geobiology. This gadget would help me live in harmony with my house and thus make fortune and Lady Luck smile on me.
Maybe Madam Marie should herself use it first. If the gadget is as wonderful as claimed, she would be able to harmonize very well with her surroundings and win the SUPER JACKPOT in any country.
All the best in your money-making dreams, Marie!

Luckily, I haven't had enough money to respond to her many offers. I was gone for a week and came home to find 10 letters from Maria Duval. Only 3 of them were duplicates. If I had sent in for all of them the total cost would have been $270 US. In a week!

By the way her new return address recently has been 1285 Baring Blvd. #409, Sparks, NV 89434-8673. I haven't looked it up yet, but it wouldn't surprise me to find out that it was a private mailbox at some mail facility like the previous UPS one.

But the most recent one I received had a return address of 3105 N Ashland Ave #395, Chicago, IL 60657
It, of course, indicated that it was extremely urgent and very important. This one offered three free gifts, the first one being a 50% discount on the cost, making it only $35.00.

Now maybe for some people that's cheap, but when you run out of money before you run out of month, $35 is like pie in the sky. So I just never seem to be able to take her up on her offers. Now I know that I have been protected from wasting what little I have had.

Got a letter from Maria Duval telling me to pray to the goddess Lakshmi along with a lovely photo of the Hindu goddess.

Promised me all sorts of riches. Then I started thinking, if some Hindue god is so powerful, wouldn't India be a superpower and not a third-world nation?

It's sad how so many people are scammed by these things.

Recieved a letter from maria duvall from the address 1285 baring Blvd. Sparks,NV.It was about sending me the statue LAKSHMI and I fell for it and sent her $12.00 for the "use" of this statue.Well,it has been almost 3 weeks and guess what(?)I haven't recieved anything yet.Of course the first 30 days was supposed to be free-and the statue was supposed to bring me untold riches in the 1st week.I got suspicious when I didn't recieve anything today-I mean come on 3 WEEKS!! I expected a week or so + a couple of days but 3 weeks?!?!Then I stumbled onto this website.Guess my next step is cancelling my check-its not dated untill 12/24. THANKS FOR THE HEADS UP!!1

I have been scammed by Maria Duval for the past few months, and the sad thing is I am disabled. She gives an address just outside Toronto, Ontario,Canada, its 3650 Langstaff Road,Suite 100, Woodbridge,Ont. L4L9A8. I am sure it is bogus. I got the 7 parchments book too. I wish someone would catch her and put her behind bars. Somedays I get 2 letters on the same day from her. It is unbelievable.

I made the mistake of sending Maria Duval some money a couple of years ago. I now receive all sorts of chain letters and other scams, so I imagine she sells your name in lists too. I am no richer from the lucky charm she sent me for my first deposit. I get a letter at least once a week now and toss them in the trash. The latest is for wealth and happiness through I-Ching. The address on the return envelope is Maria Duval 1285 Baring Blvd, #409, Sparks, NV 89434-8673. It is marked "CONFIDENTIAL: Please, Maria, handle my request on a top-priority basis." And of course she wants the obligatory thirty five dollars even though the letter says you can try it free with no obligation for thirty days. The thirty five bucks is simply a deposit. One you'll never see again even though she offers a "money back guarantee".

Surprisingly, a day without something from Maria Duval. I only recently came out of the illness I was in ( am bi-polar and schizo-affective) to realize the duping I had been under by Ms. Duval, Lee Moorhead, and the great Kreskin. This Maria Duval caused my checking account to go into the negative and cost me hardships between myself and two of my brothers for the mishandling of money I did while under the "spell" of these soothsayers and doomspeakers. Now that I am doing well again I don't mind as I hide behind the anonymity of the internet to say that these people have no scruples whatsoever. I told them I was ill! That brought mail to me like rain and I suspect it will not stop for a long time. I have written letters, nasty letters telling them to stop but I am most certain it was mostly wasted postage. But I feel better for having done it, taken action to close the chapter in my sometimes interrupted life. They took a considerable amount of money from me and of course I have nothing to show for it but a pendulem to tell me yes or no and a fake gold-plated talisamn to keep the boogie man out of my house! Kind of funny to me when I let it be, but it is also really nasty and pathetic. People like that should be destroyed like rabid dogs if you ask me. And I am a nice guy. I am pleased to have found this blog and will check back to see if anyone else admits to have been suckered in as bad as I was. I am still waiting for my last $45 check to clear. I would stop payment but that would cost me $40 at the bank and the humiliation of having to tell the personal banker why I am stopping payment. I'll eat the $5 thank you.

Hi,

I'm in Australia and as my grandmother is now in a nursing home, we receive all of her mail.

My grandmother has always talked about how she receives 'scam' mail and we thought she was just confused but last week we received a letter from Marie Callas. It addressed my grandmother by given and middle name throughout the whole letter.

Thank god my grandmother knew it was a scam, but not all people will. This lady needs to be stopped. She is a b**** who is taking advantage of people.

I took the letter we received to the police. I know they can't do much about it, but at least there are aware of the problem in my area now and can warn others.

An Aussie TV current affairs program wxposed Marie last year in Singapore as a Chinese man! tday I got aletter that included another letter from "her" friend Nicos Daskolos, it's all the same story as the other blogs on this page difference is "she" ios now asking for $60 aud.I've also recieved "gifts" a couple of pentacles and symbols that I am familiar with and know to be useless.Thankyou all for spreading the word on these heartless scammers.Originally the letters came from Singapore, then Canada and todays was from Sauverny France, I think that this is not one person but a scam franchise.
It would all be quite funny if only people were not being hurt by this. Bright Blessings to you all.

I got sucked in as well with Maria Duval. Almost for a year. BUT I sent a nasty letter and received my $400 back. She really knows how to mislead us and make us believe our lives will change. Can't believe I actually fell for this crap. People like that should be locked up. Some people cannot accept failure and Maria gives you hope and then takes it away, as I told her or whoever SHAME ON HER! I also just received the letter form Nicos Daskalos.

And "Maria Duval" still exists. Now is 2008... "She" bombards my mail-box with her offers. I didn't answer one, but it just doesn't stop. Of course, I don't believe her, but I'm worried about people who can be caught on it and send her money in hope to return more... Who can believe that one can win money next month if to pay "maria duval" some money for something "she" "does"...And "she" asks to do it "in secret" what is very suspecious for me, for example. And her free reading is not reading but advertisement of what she is going to give you if you pay her... So "famous" and "honoured" person fills mail-boxes with scam asking to send her 50$ and even more ($300 for some "services"). Why does so respected in higher society person ask you to send her some money? Because it is "her" business how "she" makes money... Because she doesn't exist in reality. People, do not get caught on her letters!

i got my first scam attempt from Marie Duval today and found it to be so incredible (the Ring of Re scam)that i looked her up. Yes now she is in Sparks, Nevada at that probable mail service box. And yes I think the scam artist Mr Trudeau is complicit because after purchasing Natural Cures I got mail from the Nouveau Tech scam and now her. I think they are heavily into identity theft now, as they ask for personal info for the free 'astral-clairvoyant forecast' that includes: name, dob, place of birth. I plan to print this entire blog and send it to the atty general and the postmaster. That bitch needs to be put down like the mad dog she is!

Looks like they are at it again, after looking through some of these blogs it seams like this Maria Duval crap is somewhat seasonal. I just received my invitation for the ring of Re yesterday and after getting ripped off by the Nouveau Tech scam I must say I am very weary of anything I am sent email or regular post, so the first thing I do now is go online and see what turns up. The return envelop is addressed to Destiny Research Group, 1285 Baring Blvd.#409, Sparks Nevada 89434-8673 just in case anyone would like to send her a letter or something…..lol.

I recieved mail from Maria Duval for months. She told me I would win lotto, and I could reserve my winning numbers by purchasing some sort of pack at a cost of $49AUD. Every letter after that I kept telling I can't afford it but if she'd send me the numbers and upon winning I would make a sizable donation to her. I repeated this response in every letter she sent. it has now been 5yrs I never heard from her again. Kharma, it will bite her on the arse.

Mail received from her today in Wellington New Zealand. I sent it back with a letter saying she was a fraud as she would have known I would not believe it if she were really clairvoyant. I also made her the following deal. For every piece of spam mail I do not receive, I will not send her an invoice for $500, and for every piece of spam mail I do receive, I will send her an invoice for $500. Receipt of spam mail from her indicates her acceptance of these terms. Failure to pay on invoice will result in action before the disputes tribunal.

And of course, as a clairvoyant, she knew I was going to send this ...

Maria Duval is doing business under "Destiny Research Center, 1285 Baring Blvd, #409, Sparks, NV 89434-8673." Only now she is selling good luck rings, "The Ring of Re" ($7 + $3 shipping).

Wow, I sent for the ring of re; I just received them today 3 for $20. The letter she sent me is 16 pages long, and then a Questionnaire for more input of me so she can do a full astral-clairvoyant forcast on me. The extra cost for this would be $37.50 olus $7.50 Postage and Handling for a total of $45.00.

I was thinking of sending for it, until I decided to look her up on the net. and ran into this blog. I guess I will hope for the best from the rings, but will not send for my report. After reading this site, I should just be happy that I received the rings. Well I guess we should all know better, but in this time and age with everyone feeling the crunch, what's another $20 bucks out the window when all else is going down the crapper. I guess the good news is at least someone is making money in today's world, the sad news is It's NOT ME....Sometimes I wish I was not the nice guy Maria say's I am. I could only wish to be this low down. But I know if I did this to anyone, I would never be able to sleep again with the guilt. Some people have no heart and to make money on someone elses pain and bad luck is OK in their book. SORRY I NEVER WAS INTO READING THESE KINDS OF BOOKS. One day as the saying goes you sow what your reep. I hope I am there to see it happen, but I think only nice guys finish last, not cold hearted people like this.

Srangely I am one of those that likes to check things out before I send my check. I just received the email from Maria Duval about getting all kinds of wonderful things with the ring of "Re" which according to her and those people she quoted, received all kinds of good luck and won lotteries, etc. I'm glad I found this because my husbanc felt "what the heck it's only $7.00. Well it's not going to be my $7.00.

Julia said...

she sold these rings long ago. I got "her" offer to buy a ring of Re last fall, but I am sure it was started before. Together with a ring "she" (it's probably a group of people, not just Maria) offers a FREE report, but then she sends a long letter explaining how much she would write you for money (I don't remember the price "she" wanted) trying to convince you that it's very exceptional offer and only for you.
Lately I receive a lot of letters from different "psychics" - everybody writes that they are so unique, successful, and wish to help me...for money. I 'll bring theses letter to RMCP - they have to check all addresses which are on envelopes for replies and find out who are hiding under the names of some kind of "famous" psychics and taking money from people who are in despair and send may be last money for the hope to change their life to the best...
if other people did the same, we could take attention of the police who would find finally these "businessmen". at least in Canada...

Today, October 2, 2008, I called the UPS Store, in Massachusetts, from the address find in this thread and spoke to the individual who answered the phone. I was able to verify that Marie Duvall is in fact using that UPS Store, #402.

After I informed her that I was calling to report to UPS that Marie Duvall is running a scam out of that store, her reply was "If you know it is a scam, don't get involved in it" A further told her that I was going to report the scam to the Better Business Bureau and report that store as supporting the scam. She repeated the above and said good bye.

So, yes she is still sending out the letters (I have received 4 to date) and now the scam is the "Ring of Re" here in the US. In the "GUARANTEE" it states:

"Your trial is free. Your Ring of Re will be shipped to you immediately as soon as your order is received.....

(Regarding returning the Ring or Ring(s):)

As soon as your return package is received, I will personally see to it that your check is sent back to you - no questions asked"

Now typed on the edge of the GUARANTEE in xxx small type is the copyright symbol 2008 Important Notice: "If by chance we can't find your original check, we....are not Bound by...." (ALL CAPS) Signature Line appears to be an R and a scribal, Destiny Research Center. If an elderly individual receives this mailing, do you think they are going to read that small print?

My question is if this in fact is a "Copyright 2008" then why can't the Copyright and Trademark division of the government get this SOB and fine them, through them in jail and throw away the key? We need to protect those who are down and out, looking for anything to turn their "Luck". Instead of looking for "Luck", turn if over to the Lord, and "Do Not Worry".

That is my input, hope it is useful to others. If you wish to call them, *67 your phone, so caller ID is not available to them. A reverse directory can locate your address, and then you will be sent letters! (USA)

I pulled up the address using Google Maps and the street camera. The address is for a "The UPS Store" and when I research them they offer mail forwarding... So end line is probably that they forward to another place that forwards it to another that forwards it to yet another. My Mother in Law was ripped off in a Ponzi scheme years ago and this was the same type of forwarding place.. that time it was a Mail Box Etc. business that was forwarding. Not there fault they are in business to forward mail. I will be contacting Feds and local Police in MA to notify.

The letter Maria Duval sent me was dated July 3, 2008. She wanted me to order the ring of re, good luck ring. I was busy working alot at the time and the letter got shoved away and forgotten. Then I lost my job and my place cause my job closed down and I had to move back to my parents and I found the letter again. So I figured why not, I could use good luck playing club keno or the lotto. So around end of Nov, 2008 or early Dec, 2008, I sent the money in, a posted dated check for Jan 7, 2009. It is now Dec 22, 2008, and have yet to recieve the ring. I even sent her a letter, with the check, telling her of my misfortune and hoped the ring would bring me better luck. The address she used was 1285 Baring Blvd. #409, Sparks, NV. 89434-8673. I now regret sending the money, cause never recieved anything yet. The letter she sent me had said Hurry cause this offer won't last long, so maybe they ran out, but their not gonna send me my check back? That's commen sense if you don't have anything left to send, you send them their check back, so they know you aren't gonna cash it. I was suppose to post date it for 37 days, that way you had 30 days to try the ring as a free trial, and you would have plenty of time to recieve it in the mail. But it's been like 3 weeks I think so I think I'm just gonna see if the bank can do a stop payment on the check. Hope it doesn't cost me alot of money to do that, like some other guy on here said it would cost him $40 to stop payment on a $45 check! That sounds crazy! So are they gonna charge me $5 or so for a $10 check? It should be free or only a $1 or 2 to do it. Well gotta go check with my bank and see what they say. Please don't order this ring of re or anything from her, you will never get it!

I too received a letter from her today on Dec. 23, 2008. She told me about lucky numbers and the casino's. If she was so good at this, she would have known that I do not gamble. I am a woman of God. She is letting the devil fool her. About two months, ago they wrote me and told me to go and cash a check, and put it in my account. I didn't do it,when I called them it was a man called me a female dog. He cused me out after I got on their trail. Please be care everybody, and Be Blessed. Trust God and he will supply all of your needs according to his riches and glory. If you give in to these people you are letting God know I believe in the devil. If you trust God he will trust you with his true riches.

I think there is a connection between Maria Duval's letters and Kevin Trudeau's books.

I received a letter from her a few weeks after ordering "Debt Cures" by Kevin Trudeau. I'm sure that's where she got my name and address. Now she wants more information about me. I'm thinking an attempt at identity theft.

Thanks everyone for posting.
If not for you guys,
I would've sent infos of mine to her.
I was reading my gossip magazine, In Touch to be precise when I saw her ad at the end stating,
she needs 500 people to perform her reading and all that crap.
Asked for some confidential infos for her reading. Deadline's on Friday.
I was about to mail it last Monday 01/05/2009 but didn't get to mail it because of laziness or it's just someone's watching over me.
Had a dream from my late father-in-law and told me not to do it but I didn't know what he was talking about.
Tuesday came but still thinking if I should send it or not,
But got lazy to write down all my infos and did my chores as usual.
Wednesday, today, I was ironing clothes when I remembered the form,
but something just felt unrealistic so I googled it.
Thank God for google and this blogspot among others too,...and laziness,
it saved me from making a big mistake on being pestered with mails you all received.
Thanks again.

I'm in the UK and i received the same letter in July 2008 about my house giving off negative waves and i needed to place a positive wave harmoniser in my home, what a load of rubbish! I also fell for the scam with jenna and Bethea too and received a 30 page reading which was complete dribble. These people should be stopped!!
