She is not registered anywhere on the Nevada Secretary of State business entity filings. Her mailings come out of Albany NY.

Contact the BBB in Albany, Sparks, NV as well as the FTC, the Direct Marketing Association, the USPS and anyone else you can think of. If you send back a letter certified with a return receipt by the USPS ordering her to stop mailing letters to you she is legally bound by it. If she sends another letter, keep it and submit it as evidence for mail fraud across state lines. It is then a Federal case.

The more people who do this the better. They WILL be found and then the US Secret Service and the US Justice Departments will step in.

They WILL find her with YOUR diligence. Get certified letters with return receipt.


As of Aug. 16, 2010 I got a letter from Maria with a return address (see below) but funny how it was mailed to me on Aug. 13, 2010 from ALBANY, NY

Yeah i gave maria duval 20 dollars and nothing she said would happen actually did. not to mention she never wrote back after she took my money and i never recieved that talisman she said she would gave me.


i am a solo mother of 3 boys and my income is only $90 per week maria asked me to pay her $60 and she would do a special reading on me and tell me how i can make all my money problems go away. well since i sent her my money i am still waiting and now i have given up hope.if you are thinking of sending maria any money then i strongly suggest that you dont she can sound very convincing but really shes all ***


i am trying to get my mom off this scam!!!! my mom is 79 years old and maria duval is scamming her for all the money she has....there must be a way to STOP THIS!

Please contact me


Always love World friends!!!



Maria Duval made an offer in our Sunday paper that was supposed to be free. When I opened the letter, there was four pages of repeating the same thing over and over which alerted me to the fact that this letter would end with me spending money.

The thing was, I hadn't open the letter until a second one arrived. The second one wanted less money. So, I decided to go on the internet and see what came up. I was not surprised at the results.

I wasn't about to send her any money in the first place. I don't like offers of help to gain finances when they turn around and ask for money. Isn't that why I got in touch with you? Because I was in need in for income?

Then why would you start out by asking me for money. That would come later, if what you said to me was true.

I tried another place called California Psychics. When nothing worked for me, I can honestly say that they did return my money.


I have been an *** to think Maria Duval would help me. I have sent her $45 twice.

Does any of you know how we can get our money back??

E-mail me at ASAP. I will never believe this mess again!


I am so happy that I am reading all of this testimonies about this called Maria Duval at 1285 Baring Blvd Sparks Nevada.

I have received a couple of letters from her telling me that she could see that I was going to be rich by the end of this year if I get her help. She even gave me some "lucky numbers", but now I know that this is a scam.

I was about to send her some money just today but now I know that there is people out there taking advantage of the ones that are seeking for a better life...

I have also received a letter from Maria Duval c/o Destiny Research Center 1285 Baring Blvd #409, Sparks, NV 89434-8673. I have only been scammed once from a different situation, since then I check the internet.

I am glad to have found out that this is a scam. I think the plan behind it is to make the fee for the reading and lucky talisman for $25.00 so that more people would consider, and offering a money back guarantee. So that more people,like I almost did, will consider doing it because it seems like a good deal. She mentions in the letter about how times are hard, and promises that just for $25, you can win $7777 or more.

But only if you follow the plan. I think it is wrong, people are struggling because of the poor economy. It is just plain wrong to take advantage of the situation.

I agree sham on this Maria Duval! I just hope more people read about this.

Yes, I too just received a letter from this Maria Duval and because of your comments, I know this is a scam. YES, YES, SHAME on Maria Duval.

The address that I have is for Destiny Research Center, 43 Riverside Ave. #525 Medford, MA 02155-4605.

And you are right, there is no phone number on this letter and believe me, she won't get any money from me. Times are tight.

Ratoath, Meath, Ireland #28057

I just received a letter todayl. I am happy to reading about this scam.

Shame on Maria Duval. I guess she is wealthy because she is taking money from those who are in need. The address I have, an of course she is asking for money for the Ring of Re, is Destiny Research Center, 1285 Baring Blvd., #409,Sparks, NV 89434-8673.

Hope this helps. Strange, there is an address but no phone number.

I have receive 2 letter from her one with a talisman for $10 and one with the Ring of Re offer for $14 I decided to do some research before i went ahead and send money to this woman. I thing is that I dont even know how she got my mailing address but i am going to send her a certify letter like someone suggested asking her to stop sending me her junk mail and if she doesnt stop I will report her but.

For the people that got the bad luck ring i would sent it back to her to see if she gets some of it too! Good luck everyone!
