Michelle Thurman Kalani Campbell, Tammy Adams, Louis Cavallario, Michelle Ross Crystal Energy Gypsy Scam Encino, California
Brief Summary: I lost $76,000 in WesterUnion, MoneyGram, Money Orders and Chase Bank transfers that were supposed to be refunded at the conclusion of crystal work done by the above "energy worker." I have all documentation and am seeking other victims to enter a class action law suit.
I initially contacted Kalani in the fall of 2009 through her website which offered spiritual work to repair relationships. I filled out the contact form and she called me back, explaining her work was $200.00 inclusive and that she was paid
by voluntary donations at the conclusion of my case. I sent her a money order for $200.00 and she called me back. She then began a tutorial on connecting with my spirit guides, and gave me daily breathing and meditation exercises.
After about 2 weeks she determined through her meditation that energy lines spanning many past lives were down in the relationship I was trying to repair, as well as other lines affecting my music career and family. These needed to be repaired and then I would move forward in all these areas. She explained that the breaks in the lines were so deep that meditations could not repair them. She required crystals that contained sufficient energy to reconnect the lines. When
everything was reconnected, she could release the energy and everything would manifest. She said her specialty was energy work and that she had a large workspace where she did crystal layouts for her clients.
She then sent me pictures of crystals via text and e-mail I could choose from that contained sufficient energy to reconnect the lines. I asked if I could purchase my own amethyst on-line. She said no, as she needed to read them to be sure
they contained adequate energy. I declined making any deposits, though she assured me they were completely refundable and we parted ways.
In January of 2010 she sent me a text and said she had a donor and had a crystal available for only $680.00 she could use to reconnect the energy lines. In the midst of divorce and emotional crisis, I agreed as long as I could get my money back. She assured me I could. I then sent her a money order for $680. She began her work and told me she was able
to make all the appropriate connections and bring up energy lines that were down with the amethyst and all she had to do was make secure connections and close the case.
The next two years were an unbelievable journey of lies, crises and deposits totaling over $76,000 for crystals, energy domes, materials and outside consultations. All of this attempting to close my case and get our money back. Kalani claimed to have over $20,000 of her own money tied up in my case. She said she had to borrow money and used all her personal funds for crystals for my case. She said she had her utilities and cell phone turned off because of the money tied up in my crystal grid and wasnt able to take on any more clients because all her time was consumed by my case.
All of the money was held in cash by crystal dealers Louis Cavallario and Mike who delivered the crystals to her work space. When the case was closed, Louis would come with a truck, charge a nominal fee per crystal and load them on his truck. Then all the money would be returned in cash and Kalani would deposit it directly into my Chase bank accounts. She had all my account numbers as she told me she was going to make the deposits within an hour or less and needed the numbers.
I was contacted in early March 2012 by a victim who had gotten my phone number from Kalanis phone records through a private investigator. He had been victimized as well for $25,000 in similar fashion and had contacted other victims, uncovering over $500,000.00 in money transfers from Kalani, which he told me was a moniker for the real extortionist, Michelle Thurman. They have tracked the victims money to a single account.
I am now seeking other victims and a lawyer to join me in filing a class action lawsuit.
