I can't believe this scam mail.....how is it that no one can stop this nonsense....This is the second letter I have received and I can now purchase a cross for $45.00 plus S&H for $4.00.....golly how could anyone believe such garbage...What scares me more than anything is all of the questions to be answered.....be smart and send it all back to her in the envelope provided and write SCAM and DEVIL'S WORK on the return envelope...I always mark up the literature and pictures with the same so they can't be used again and no stamp so she gets to pay for postage...if we could get more doing this maybe we could shut her or him down......

I livein Fort Myers, Florida and I just got a letter in the mail indicating that October 15, 2012 is a special "Black Moon" night where rituals can be performed and I will $25,000.00 if I cut the "Talisman" (gold-like bendable coin) hold it to my chest & think positive thoughts then mail it back within 7 days and she will start preparing for me. Also that she "would NEVER do this sort of thing, but today is different." I must be VERY special for her to pick my name out of the phone book right?

What a Joke.

Everyone has hopes of winning something like this but it is said if ayone asks you for $ when they say you can win something then IT'S A SCAM. F-off Marie & straighten up or you're going to ***.

Good stuff here! I keep getting junk mail from her..

even though I never respond or send in any money. Letters sound good.. but sites like these sound even better. The Holy Bible talks about how phsyics and fortune tellers R bad people and unrightous.

So, keep that in mind everyone. I'll never respond..

and cost her more mailing money.. ha, ha (now U can loose some *** money Maria Duval)!!

We can all make a wrong decision at needy or unhealthy mental moments. This must be a lessen to check fraud on-line before purchasing anything, keep in mind I.D.

thefts. I only spent $20 USD; BUT HOURS FILLING OUT USPS Mail Fraud Report (PDF down load)and talking to Criminal Division of my Bank. Maria has many identities and international address, see astrocat.exactpages.com! Report, don't be afraid to look foolish.

Every government needs to know.

Hello.... have you thought of cancelling your card?

your bank will do it instantly! I think some people like to feel like a victim. You allowed it, you're in charge! she promotes some nice jewelry for 'good luck' - I have ordered twice some of her jewelry, but not with the purpose of making me a millionaire, but because I liked the jewelry.

I, and only I can make my own luck. I can't, and won't blame it on no one else but myself if I'm not rich, lucky and famous!

Maria Duval a Scam Artist

I have received several letters from Maria Duval from Destiny Research Center in Sparks, NV. She told me I would be winning large sums of money in games of chance and I would be moving into a new home and I would never have to worry about money problems again. Well, I fell for her laod of *** and sent off several sums of money totalling around $250.00 or more before I finally woke up and decided that what she was telling me was all a bunch of baloney and all I was doing was making her rich and I was getting poorer. Shame on her for getting old people to fall for her string of lies, and shame on me for being sucked in to her scam. Please don't fall for this pack of lies. They are scamming innocent people out of their hard earned money. I don't believe they would send you the money back even if you requested for it, as they said it was 100% money back guarantee, which was another lie. Wish I could get my money back.

No me podía creer que volviese a tener noticias de esta mediocre, hace no pocos años se puso en contacto conmigo mientras no tuviese que mandar dinero, seguí su parafernalia, me mandó hacer lo que consideraba un tanto ridí*** y que no hice *** velas y otras historias, por último mis números de la suerte si antes jugaba a la lotería y a veces tenía algún que otro premio pequeño o incluso la devuelta cuando te dicen estos son tus números aunque no te lo creas te se queda y a partir de ahí ya ni premios pequeños ni devueltas ni nada, eso por hacerme caso aunque solo fuera de eso y cuando vió que no me interesaba y mucho menos enviarle dinero no me volvió a escribir pero que no se como olvidarme de los números que me dijo.

Maria Duval - Sent me a pendant

Maria Duval sent me a pendant as a gift. The letter said to wear it for 30 days and wish for what I wanted with all my heart. To keep the necklace on when I needed to feel safe. I wore it for protection when I spoke out against the KKK on the news. I didn't understand the writing on it but I didn't think it was bad. Rumors started that I was a devil worshiper. In the end I didn't feel safe. Just sad. I should have prayed for protection. I was a fool and should have known better. I still don't know what the necklace said and don't really care. I don't know if I'll ever get over being disappointed with myself for putting it on in the first place.

Maria Duval - RING OF RE

I got the RING OF RE and the REPORT. I broke it soon after, however when the opportunity came again , I re-ordered the RING ( 3 of them) and got a new REPORT. I will try to take better care of it this time. I felt a tingling sensation on my finger. More info can be found at: ATLANTIS-RING.COM----- and it is more costly as well. You will find this information very helpful in your use of the RING. I have not had a problem in getting anything from Destiny Reserch - Maria Deval at any time. People use different names on selling the RING. The full story can be found at the site I have mentioned here. Thank-You!

Maria Duval i want refund!!!

I started getting her letters of hope and encuragement since 2008. Ive been sending her money on and off ever since up till this past January or Feb., 2012. When all of a sudden right after i had sent her the money? No sooner then it got in the mail, she sent another letter asking for more money for another one of her so called rituals and predictions! I cant keep up with her and ive asked her many times for a refund for what i already paid for and again, she sent another letter asking for money for something! How in the world do i get in touch with her without having to send another letter stating i want a refund? Also, I want these fausifyed letters of promises to stop coming to me, because everytime i get one, i get stuck opening it due to the fact, its not noted with a return address on top. I want her to stop robbing people and give refunds asap! Arline Linebeger-Ubl.

Maria duval - if only we weren't so desperate!

I am encouraged to join this sight simply because i have more faith - It occurred to me after my first $90 payout to Maria that she does in fact give me a time frame to reply: I wrote to query this and advised her that it is impossible for me to return mail within certain time frames but told her to keep my cash as I believe they do a good job. I was informed later (it takes 4 weeks from me/them mailing my/their reply check the send date against your receive date to actually clearing my payment...way outside the time frame stated but I overlooked this initially but time frames are of great importance in Readings) that I could perhaps go through the Australian Call Centre rather than the French one if it would help to expedite things in future - a letter of regret was received and my $90 was refunded in 60 days!I did not request this refund at all. I have had the opportunity twice since including one recent, unfortunately the bank has not returned a replacement card to me for me to do so in time ( 48hrs in this case) so obviously I know it would be pointless to reply as much as I want to. My partner offered to use his credit card once but unfortunately because it was not in my name they sent me a letter regrettably informing me I am unable to use anothers card..I think thats pretty good too...Don't give up so easily. Have faith and read the small print - Good luck to you all regardless

Maria Duval - Scammed my elderly mother

Recently discovered my 82 year old mother had been sending money to Maria Duval and receiving false predictions of coming into large amounts of money and to receive Duval's so called help with matters. The letters from Duval always, always request money. This whole thing is one big scam on the elderly!! I have reviewed other postings concerning this individual and the organization she uses. There are numerous complaints and several investigations going on related to Duval. Why hasn't this person been stopped and arrested? I now have to monitor my mother's mail every day to make sure no other solicitation letters get to my elderly mother so I can protect her from fraud like this!!

Ring van ré is niet slecht, heb die niet gekregen via Maria Duval maar gewoon besteld via new-age shop en tot nu toe heeft die me al vele malen beschermd (denk ik toch, maar ik geloof ook in een goede beschermengel). Dat die mevr.

Duval zoveel geld vraagt, vind ik niet kunnen.

Jammer dat paragnosten zoveel munt slaan uit hun gaven, dit kan de bedoeling niet zijn van "de helpers uit die onzichtbare wereld". Dit kan Gods doel niet zijn, denk ik ?

Maria Duval - Took my money and did not give me product. advertised.nothing

Maria Duval - Destiny Research Center, 14-3650 Langstaff Road #289 Woodbridge, ON L4L 9A8, agreed to send me a pendant necklace & earrings, plus biomagnetic bracelet, plus astrology chart, for $30.00. I never received anything. Now I get another letter today, asking for another $60.00 and I will receive a pure gold pendant, with real diamonds, a magnetized talisman, and an astro-clairvoyant forecast, covering the next 12 months, claiming 99.9% accuracy on every aspect of my life, including financial forecasts, continuously with more money being asked for with a personal consultation with Maria Duval every three months. This person also claimed to have had an audience with Pope John Paul II at the Vatican, Several movie stars, the President of the U.S.A., members of the Royal Family of Britain. She claims to be a psychic, and medium. Last year I was sent advertising for weight loss pills, for $100.00, then weight loss patches, for another $100.00 from this same address in Woodbridge ON. I ordered the weight loss pills and patches, but was unable to continue taking them, because they made me very ill. I really feel these are all the same people, working different angles, to get more money, all the time.

Destiny Research Centre / Maria Duval Scam

My senior friend has been sending $59.00/ every two weeks since Feb. 2011 to Maria Duval . She sends him literature, lucky numbers, rings and now she wants to send him 7 parchments. He is told that when he receives these,all he has to do is to hold them, and I quote: "Your powers of visualisation develop. They become so strong that all you need to do is visualise a situation for it to happen." These are *** artists and thieves, guilty of senior abuse. Here is what the New Zealand ScamWatch Says: Maria Duval scams have been investigated by the Ontario Police, US Postal Service agencies in five Australian states, New York Better Business Bureau, and Europe. In New Zealand, Maria Duval is listed as a scam on the Ministry of Consumer Affairs Scamwatch website."

No one can tell you, you are going to win the lottery. If they could predict it they would be winning every week.

Scam artists such as this prey on our weaknesses of needing money, who doesn't. The thought of free gifts add to the incentive. I have seen these gifts they are worth about .75 cents to 1 dollar max and some are dangerous lead based products.

These scams are classic ruses to get you to keep on donating to them, and her little questionaires

are what she uses to prey on your emotions. Need to know more watch movie Red Lights.

NOT! I think most folks seeking help,don`t have money, which is why they look for psychics for answers.They need help not scams

The company places advertisements in newspapers or magazines. People who reply will receive several letters in the next months and years. These letters are mass produced but address the recipient personally.

Each letter pretends to be sent by Maria Duval and offers some sort of help in return for money.

The letter makes unverified claims like:

She claims to have been making accurate & verifiable predictions for the past 23 years in at least 2,400 TV shows and 8,400 radio broadcasts

She claims her achievements have been featured in over 700 newspaper articles

she claims she has been able to predict the rate of the dollar and the Stock Market Index and major newspaper headlines

She claims to regularly work with doctors and the police

She claims to have been able to telepathically locate more than 20 missing persons

She claims that international celebrities come from all over the world to consult her

although none of these claims has been verified.

Complaints about these claims were upheld in the UK.

The letter then continues for about 8 to 10 pages. Duval claims she has telepathically received an important and urgent message, specially for the recipient of the letter. A special constellation of the stars (or something like that) means that an important time period has begun in the life of the recipient. The most important wishes of the recipient can become reality now, but only with the assistance of Maria Duval.

This assistance amounts to an item which Duval will send to the recipient and rituals she will perform, specially for the recipient. The item could be a 'Vibrating Crystal' which is supposed to function as a telepathic connection, a pentagram to put under the pillow of the recipient, a mascot, an amulet or talisman, a book with occult secrets or a secret manual to charge up the spirit with magnetic vibrations. Often the recipient has to perform some rituals as well, at the same moment when Duval performs her rituals. These services usually costs about 100 USD, but in this special case the recipient gets a discount and only has to pay about half the normal price.

These letters seem to be written by professional marketeers using several well-known marketing methods.

Complaints about the letters of Astroforce were upheld by the Advertising Standards Authority in the UK in December 1999.Complaints about its advertisements were upheld in the UK in March 2000. In 2005 Astroforce stopped its New Zealand advertising after a complaint by the Consumers' Institute of New Zealand.

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
