I met Anna in Aug. 2008, and she claimed she was sent by god to help me with my life that day. She said she had seen me in her dreams, and that she HAD to help me. I was going through some rough times financially and emotionally at the time, and what she told me all made perfect sense, so I agreed to have a cleansing done at her house.
I came to her house and was greeted at the door by her family, it was a rundown apartment in a larger apartment complex in Brooklyn. Kids and little babies EVERYWHERE. She ushers me downstairs in a basement type room, and sits me down on a dingy mattress next to a little round table where there is a stack of cards and a crystal ball on top.
She reads the cards and starts talking about my negativity and that it has affected me for a long time, I'm aware that my life has been rough, with sexual abuse etc. in my childhood, and she says that it was never my fault and that it was the dark forces around me that were trying to destroy me. Sounding like she knew what she was talking about I agree to get a cleansing that's going to cost me $450, having NO idea what something like this costs.
After the "cleansing", which was basically me lying on the mattress with the crystal ball on my tummy, saying "Evil spirits leave me, bad luck go away", she says she will have to "analyze" the results and let me know. She gives me her card and phone number, and takes my number as well. She says she is going to be the mother I never had, although I say I have a mom already, she says yes but not a spiritual mother. I have no idea what that meant but just smile nervously and nod.
Over the course of the next 8-9 months, I am giving her approx. $70.000 for materials to cleanse me of these negative energies etc. that are trying to destroy me. I even start believing that I am cursed and that when I don't "obey" her, its because the forces are winning. Paranoid and scared I try to obey her every whim, and she tells me that Money is the root to all evil, and that I need to not worry about money, but let money worry about me, yet at the same time she knows perfectly well that I am behind on the rent, bills are being neglected and sometimes during the time I don't even have enough money to buy food. She has on occasion given me $40 or paid for a meal, but I suspect that that has been my cash all along.
I am saddened that there are people that are so evil in nature, that they can look you straight in the face and tell you they love you, introduce you to their entire family, invite you for dinner and let you hang out at their house, while they squeeze every dime out of you to the point where you are left with nearly nothing.
Please come forward so we can file a proper report on all these con-artists in New York, because I'm more than certain she is not the only one there is! If we get enough reports to build a solid case we can get the FBI involved.
Brooklyn, New York
