Maria Duval - My Mom is elderly and was taken by Marie or ever !

My Mom is elderly and got letters from her...convinced my Mom she would become rich if she would write her and give her Mom's Checking account numbers and debit card numbers, I keep track of my Mother accounts online, but before I could stop her, Destiny Research Center took $49.00 from Mom's checking 5 times in the first week...using the debt card number. So the bank canceled her debit card number she Destiny research did a ACH which is automatic with draw, I had to close Mom's accounts...But they have sent her more "prayers" and letters...hoping to get her numbers again...Mom use to be very on her toes, worked hard all her life, but now at her fragile state does not realize they are crooks! Mom lived on Social Security, they took about $500 from Mom now way will it be returned :( :(

Add me to Maria Duval Scam

Total scam. I bit. I was (am) desperate for help. I won't say my age or the amount spent. Play the lottery , your odds are better. Her written guarantees are worthless. All lies! 4 letters from me and 2 letters from BBB and no responses, and no refunds. All have been ignored. Her "toys" that she sends, do nothing to help you. Her pages of documents she sends are for you to "self help." To me, she comes accross as a "self help guru." The only satisfaction I have in this, is that the money I won on the lottery before her contact paid for my entertainment on this subject. If you read the fine print, it states that it is an entertainment solicitation. Its buyer beware. Keep your money.

I haven't heard from this person Maria Duval. She sends out these emails that I think are processed somewhere either here or in the US.

I am not sure. But I do have some address in Thornhill.

I guess its a small strip plaza.

It's in an idustrial site.

I will be watching this one. But I think she is laying low for now...

Maria Duval - Destiny Research Center Fraud:

I got this letter in the mail I would say last week. It was from some agency called "Destiny Research Center from a Maria Duval. So it said. It was a lengthy letter in 2 parts saying some thing about a ring of some sort that would bring you luck. What nonsense does this woman tell. Do people actually believe this bunk about some *** ring or bracelet that it will bring you luck? I don't think so. I saved this letter and decided to write about it. I live in Canada so the address isn't far from where I live. I should drive down and see what kind of a place it is. I guess she prays on the weak. I would imagine her target is middle aged women. Not men.They wouldn't stand for it and neither would I. She should be reported at once. That's all.................I'm Mad....

Patty, same thing happened to my mom! This witch obviously don't know anything about God and for her to get people involved with witchcrafts, spells, magics plus the demonic star symbol!??

I was pisssssed! Trys to say it depends on how u use it our what your intentions are.. BULLSH**!!! No matter how u preform this stuff or how pretty you make things sounds, it still involves witchcraft, something GOD told us to never get involved in.

Remember everyone! The devil is a lair in sheep's clothings.

Well so far I haven't received anymore from this Destiny Research marie Duvall.

It's been quiet in the mail.

I guess she doesn't send out her brochures all that much. I am sure she does know that people will question it.

If I get anymore brochures I will pesuit her.

In the meantime anyone who receives anything from Marie duval don't answer it just shred it away. I mean GET RID OF IT. :( :(

Hello Virginia:

Yes I know what you mean she should be reported but I haven't received much from here at all. I think she prays on women.

I am not sure.

her address here in York Region isn't to far from me.

I don't know weather I should take a drive down to see for myself. Do keep me informed if you get another one of these letters in the mail.

Maria Duval preys on the elderly

My 96 yr-old father-in-law was scammed into believing the *** coming from this place! He sent in a $45 check, and then they started direct debit of $45 every month!!! He truly believes that he is going to win big money, and no matter what we do or what we tell him, he is in denial that this is a scam!!! He is so desperate for money that he pins all his hopes on this *** *** predicting his winning! He is now bankrupt and at the mercy of the state, which everyone will be paying for now! We had to close his checking account in order to stop the withdrawals. Because he no longer has control over his account, he just today wrote a letter to Maria Duval and was going to send her cash!!! Thankfully, we now monitor all his mail, coming and going, and this organization will no longer be taking advantage of this elderly person. Whoever runs this organization should be prosecuted and jailed until they are old and penniless and have nowhere to go!!!

Maria Duval

Wow i feel so mentally challeged that I didn't reseach before i took action. She promised me a a cross necklace and advice to help me with wealth and love and all that bull ***. I sent her $10 and still haven't recieved my cross. All I have been recieving is letters offering more good luck charms. I am a college student who who can barely make ends meet as it is. I am so glad i didn't send more than that but I feel horrible for everyone who has been a victim. I hope she gets shut down and goes to ***

Maria Duval - Debited my elderly mother's account for $60.

My mom is elderly and has a bad habit of sending donations to organizations and purchasing form mail order catalogs. I have warned her against giving out her debit card number but she has done it anyway. This week Destiny Research Center has taken $60 from her checking account. I asked her what she was to recieve from this company, she said, books, magazines and information about her future. My mom is in the hospital after breaking her hip and her femur in the same leg. I am concerned that this company is a scam and they may continue to steal from her. Kathryn Jones, daughter of Colleen Sturdevant Yukon, OK

I have to agree with the response. Your mom did give out the info. I hate that she broke her hip and wish her well, but she needs to NEVER give anyone her debit card info (or other info for that matter).

So, you haven't actually been scammed by them? Your mother gave them her account information, so that's on her.

Now, if they were to refuse to send her the items she paid for, or kept debiting her account without permission, then it would be different.

But the company hasn't done anything wrong, so you really shouldn't have jumped to writing on PC so quickly. Wait and see if they actually scam your mother, don't write here just because you assume they will.

Maria Duval wasted my time...

I want compensation for my time! I've received a recycling bin full of scam offers to "win me $25,000" and now wasted over an hour researching Maria Duval and the Destiny Research Center. I feel sorry for all the schmucks who actually sent her money! Mother of 5? Really? How could anyone who has $10 to spare on this BS really complain about how their children need clothes or food or necessary pillars for life? NEVERTHELESS, I've come out on top: I am now the proud owner of this AMAZING gold talisman! I think I'll send it to Cash4Gold and get my $25,000.

Apparently you didn't get that this whole post was a complete joke. And no, you don't get compensation for reading that person's note...

It was YOUR decision to waste your time reading it!

Just like it was everyone else's decision to fail at using common sense about mailing scams! FAIL.

I want compensation for my time as well for reading your letter. *** it was you who choose to do the research they won't compensation you for your time.

Will you compensate me for reading your letter and writing a response. I doubt it.

Maria Duval is a BIG Scam for money.

I thought a physic could help a situation in my life and give me something positive. After receiving two letters in the same week for the same thing, I smartened up. This is a BIG SCAM which I have invested $500 into without a clue of its intention. Destiny Research/Maria Duval is bogus. Wouldn't you like to know to who your money is actually going? All letters say: money back guarantee Well I tried and that is false also. On yeah, your name appears all over the letter like it is personal when actually it has broke me. Beware of these kind of letters to drain your pockets. Chenango Forks, NY
