My elderly father was scammed by Maria for over $1,000. A.K.A. Maria Duval, Angela, Destiny Research. He received a letter from Maria (Who's probably not a female even though a female is pictured on mailings) who claims to be a Clairvoyant and Medium. Sent him a "Magic Square of Luminous Energy" that once he touches the gold square his problems will be detected and he'll be protected. Most of the 9 pages of letters were scare tactics. Noting destruction, dangerous events about to happen, energy out of balance, bad luck etc.

He has sent over 20 checks ranging from #39-49 each before I caught on when he started getting overdraft fees this week. Because he's sent personal checks his bank said to call the fraud claim dept. He should get his money back once they determine it's a scam. Not sure how others paid the scammer. I sent out a request to Western Union last year when he was scammed by the Jamaiican lottery numerous times that he is never to use Western Union again. He agreed and they have him on a list that he'll never be able to use it. Now I'll have to take his check book and monitor all money. I recommend anyone who paid Maria, Angela, Destiny Research etc by their personal banks to also contact your fraud claim department.
