Maria Duval

I got scammed for $100.30. Wheres the government when you need them? It's really a shame to pray on the poor.It first started in Aug. 09 I got the add out of the Sun. paper of all places. It just goes to show you how desperate we are in times like this.Big brother is always watching, or so I here. Its not like she just started this little caper.You would think she would put her life to better use.I wished I would haved checked here first, as I will for now on. Thank you for this cite. Kathy

You sent more than $100 for occult talismans and the cold-reading tricks of a "psychic". You didn't get scammed, someone took your money away before you ate it or set it on fire or something.

Maria duval scam

so, i've been going through all the complaints posted in this blog. and...honestly, i was one of those stupeed, senseless person who believed she could do what she says she could. i just emailed a request for a lucky charm to her... which i am suppose to recieve within 2 - 3 weeks... her blog said she won't solicite for payment.... how dumb can i be. nothing is too good to be free right. so... when and if the package arrives within the time frame she says it would come, i would turn the package over to the bureau of complaints and let the authorities deal with it. i'm not even going to open the package. it was *** of me... anyway, must have been MY intuition that got me to surf the web and get to know more about this scam....before i recieve any mail. also... i suspect she might be using another name..... .anyway... i just alerted my family members and friends re this person. i think this particular scam operates internationally.. .

Maria Duval is telling my mother that she will have her heath back and that she sees over $300,000.00 in her near future. My mother had a stroke 6yrs ago and is lame on the left side.

My mother has sent this person lots of money. My sister and l found the papers in her bedroom.

Our mother was hiding this information from us she said it was a letter from her pen pal.

I have now sumitted a complaint with the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre. I will also be sending this Maria Duval person a letter.

I received a phone reading from the yourpsychicinfo.com website and it was so vague then they wanted me to pay for a longer reading in which I declined and I'm glad I hung up the phone at that moment. You would not believe they then called me back about 10 minutes later and told me they were worried about my health.

They said that there was a very evil spell someone had casted on me and they could remove this spell for a few hundred dollars. I could not believe I was hearing this from them. I told them to please not ever call me again or I would report them to the authorities.

so far, I have not recieve anymore calls from them. Thanks for listening

...another fraudster, scammer and a dispecable human being who needs jail time. she uses a few different names in Dallas, Texas and has a website>>> www.yourpsychicinfo.com.......she uses a name of ANN NEWMAN at that site but goes by a few other names.

There is another psychic (A.Newman) back east who is legit but the one I'm referring to is in Dallas, Texas and also goes by other names as well, including>> Dorothy Leath, Dorothy Marks, Cathy Leath , Nicole Kennedy and more. I know some people who are investigating this person as they have scammed their grandfather, uncle and an older grandmother out of large amounts of money by claiming they needed their spirits cleansed/bad luck or some garbage to that effect. They use intimidation and scare tactics on these poor older folks and coozy up to them as their best friend. You get my drift?

Be careful with these people as most all of them are low-life scamming individuals only concerned with their own welfare.

My grandfather lost quite a bit of money with this woman. I live in Louisiana and contace me thru>> JGHM45@yahoo.com to discuss further.

Maria duval is a scam

I just sent a money order to this *** and thinking it will work. I just got in a car accident. Lucky ring my ***. I just remember that if you read carefully it will tell you in the letter that something like it only for...... and not guaranteed. So all future mailings will be shredded. Should have went online earlier for some research. Thank you all of you who have complained that helps me stop business with this lady named Maria Duval. I have learned my lesson. I am okay but my car got hit really bad. My life sucks right now, from that *** car accident, everything was fine til I got hit. Everything from Maria Duval will be burned and the ring will be destroyed for good. What an evil person she is.

I once read that very long ago, going back to the time of Moses and even before that, there have always been people who could "predict" the future or in other ways involving alleged clairvoyance give people advice and tell their fortunes. The interesting thing here is that in those days there was NO LAW against telling the future for others.

What WAS VERY MUCH AGAINST THE LAW back then was accepting money for doing such work. The reason it was against the law to be paid makes sense.

Once a "psychic" has accepted money, they are now (at least emotionally) obligated to tell the person good things about their futures so that they'd feel their money was well spent.

Those with the powers to "see" who did NOT charge money for their work were allowed to conduct their work and remain within the law. Interesting that there was the reference to "in the time of Moses and before." This should be a lesson to us all.

Received letter July 8, 2012 saying that

she, Maria Duval could have me winning

$25,000 immediately. Right then, I knew that it was a scam. The letter instructed me to fill out form attached giving my birth date, time of birth, city/

state/country. Also, requesting a check for $10.00 or use a credit card. It also

requested the names of any credit cards

I might have, giving them the numbers and

expiration dates, and signing your signature just under this information.

Maria Duval - Passed Pissed

Last 12/26 my job was eradicated as were many others. I recieved Maria's letter December as we were loosing our house just as many others are. Do to all the wonderfill things she stated I figured nothing else had helped me feel better, so let's give it a try. I sent her the letter with the 25.00 1/9/09 today is 1/30/09. The mail just came and there was nothing from her or Destiny Research Center - 1285Baring Blvd. #409 - Sparks NV 89434. She said she was 70 - maybe she had a brain *** and forgot!!

Maria Devuall is out for herself. She is lost, she obviously don't know anything about God and for her to get people involved with witchcrafts, spells, magics plus the demonic star symbol!??

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

 

Remember everyone! The devil is a lair in sheep's clothing. If you need help on anything, God is your best and permanent solution. Read the bible, there's instructions on how to get what you want, its all there and it doesn't involve you playing with fire.

There's no "it depends" or there is no one thing with multiple meanings that causes confusion, God is straight forward and direct. Confusion is caused by the devil.

Hi Folks

I Am so glad I also just did my reaseach on Maria Duval. I just recently sent her 13.00 for a get rich physic claim.

She now constantly sends me letters every few days promising me Iam going to have such a wonderful life with money galore etc. There is a world wide Fraud company called phone busters, check them out on line..and they will shut her down permanantly. And you folks can claim all your money back. They helped me out yrs.

ago on a similar situation.She will get what is coming to her through this fraudulent company.Phone busters are now the best place to go for this sort of ongoing scam.They will certainly help out all of you. As there seems to be an over welming amount of people that she is ripping off BIG TIME!!

Do Not Let her Continue To Take Money from us.Lets Shut her down forever!!!

I too was considering sending in a money order (no checks - no credit cards.) it did sound very convincing. I am all about finding good luck. But after reading what everyone else had to write, i have decided not too. It seems alllll too fishy for me!! It's weird thou because I am having a very hard time with love and i am in debt up to my ears!! So, i'm wondering if that was a shot in the dark for her, or if she really knows me...LOL. Did anyone else like on the bottom of the pink pages she (or whoever) wrote in cursave (spelling??) like this is a personalized letter....:)

I feel what everyone here is saying. She is a hoax and a phony. I am glad that I googled her name to investigate to see if she real. I've always wanted to become a millionaire. I've entered Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes and still haven't won any money. She is a real fake sister. Some people says she is real. I've also gotten letters from her also. This goes to show you that a human being will lie to you just to get your hopes up. If Maria was real,(Maria is not her real name). Half of my problems would be solved. I can do better.

Its so amazing. I personally have lost count of how many times IN THE PAST TWO MONTHS I've won a lottery which I never even entered. Hundreds of millions of dollars (U.S.) all mine. Ahhh but I never sent the money to the agencies handling my winnings.

If you receive notification of great winnings which was sent from outside the U.S., contact U.S. Customs.

Tell them about the notice you've received. They'll probably already be investigating the source.

Maria Duval - Sent unsolicited letter asking for money promsing luck and money

I am completely pissed off because I was scammed out of $25 too! She sent me these rings that first of all fell apart and then lost their colour and made my fingers itchy! What a huge scam and I'm pissed at myself for falling for such a trick. What can be done about this type of scams that obviously take advantage of people who are struggling and put their faith in false hope. Isn't it against the law for companies to give out one's address, i.e., other subscriptions to magazines? How else does she get hold of one's address?? Live and Learn - BR
