I went to this woman for a simple tarot card reading. I read the reviews on line and felt confidant I was going to someone reputable. Over the last 3 months she coaxed me into giving her a total of 4000.00. She gained my trust and then informed me I was cursed. Not once but 3 times. The bottom line is I was an idiot and believed her. So the scam. Well in order to remove these so called curses she would need to meditate with 3 candles. I had to buy them for 500.00 I then needed to soak bath using no soap and bring bath water to her the next day in a jar. That night I took the bath, I also needed to put red ribbons and 3 one hundred dollar bills in each of 3 envelopes with notes of my intentions. One represented the past one for the present and one for the future, along with leaves from a tree. I know stupid... I did this and returned to her the next day with the envelopes and the bottle of bath water. She proceeded to wrap the bottle in paper towel and the money which she says is evil, and have me blow in it while she chanted some garbage about telling the bad energy to leave. She instructed me to close my eyes and with the cap off the jar circle my body. She told me that we would hope for a sign. Of course we saw a sign the water turned dark purple or black, most likely when she dropped something in it while my eyes were closed or behind my back. She acted all freaked out and I was like uhhh ok. The money was on the floor and she proceeded to pick it up and tear it up because it was bad...She also informed me at one point that God needed to see my financial commitment. I was also told by her not to tell this to anyone. Most of the comments were not at the same time but when I thought about them collectively afterwards is when I realized I was taken. Ok it gets better. Now, she tells me I need to buy a tabernacle so she can put the bad energy in it and she has to take it far away and bury it in the mountains. The tabernacle was 2250.00 I didn't have the money. She offered to lay it out for me. So like an idiot I agreed, thinking she was being so nice to me and thinking she was really looking out for me and my best interests. I was like wow she really wants this to get done she is offering to help me. What a fool I was. So I was making payments to her and down to the last 650. She started calling me and asking me when I could give her the money and in a forceful way. I ended up giving it to her on 10/2/12. Suddenly I stopped hearing from her, she didn't respond to my texts, nor take my calls. I went away for a few days and on my return on 10/8/12 I get a text that her phone has not been working and she has a bad connection blah blah blah. Funny right. So now is when I am feeling like she is a fraud. I agree to meet her at her apt on 57th on 10/9/12. While waiting for her outside I started goggling and sure enough came across this sight and the complaint filed by Alana B. My heart sunk. So now I am done she meets me and tells me that the work is almost finished,( I was like WHAT almost) and that once this is done the "healing" process begins. I asked how long does that take she said its up to me and my energy. So I allowed her to continue her line of BS waiting for her to tell me she needed more money. She must have sensed that I was on the her by my demeanor. I told her I want this over and she told me its all up to me and my energy. At the end of that meeting she told me to take a bath for the next 7 days. and each day collect leaves and dirt form the park and at night write my name on paper 7 times and put in my pillow case. Then after 7 days it would all be over. Huh all over? hmm she had actually told me that the healing process would then begin. I was HAD. That night I decided to take action. I have reached out to Alana B and hope I hear from others that have been taken by this woman. I am filing a small claims suit against her and hope her fortune telling days will be over soon. Lord help her, I hope she doesn't train her baby to be a scam artist like her. Good Riddens. I believe in God and I have been show that he is all you need in life.
