I had received a letter and got sent out a check for 10 dollars and never received a ring or refund i am very upset how they allow a womanizer scam the world and the worst part is she makes you believe on receiving a fortune and you don't receive any thing but a charge i hope god punishes her and she goes straight to *** for stealing your money and lying maria if you are a real psychic you will not charge anyone and you will help this world i am tired of people like you god does not like evil..

Maria Duval - More on Duval & Ring of Re

The 3d attempt to post this. I received, as some whose comments I read, a letter from Duval re the Ring of Re. To the web for info! www.atlantisrings.com shows pics of the clay original & copies in silver for sale. They call it by a different name & give a lot more info than this post. Apparently the ring was found in Tutankhamen's tomb when it was broken into. The design & geometric markings are very like the one Duval offers : ) but for many more $$$$$. Those who had to do with that break-in all died from various causes within a year of the tombs' being raided, except for the one wearing the ring. Apparently it is a protection from Tutankhamen's curse! I saw no mention of good fortune going to the wearer, but of health benefits to specific parts of one's body depending on which finger(s) the ring is worn on. Trust in I AM THAT I AM. "This is my name forevermore..."

i get a letter from this Maria Duval...complete with a photograph ( a real one) of a destroyed S10 pickup! The first thing I think before seeing who this is from is that its a lawyer's office trying to make a buck off of me, knowing fully well I haven't been in a wreck!

GAH!

I don't need this frustration from some fruitloop who thinks she has a 'gift' I do my own tarot, my own spells, and my own voodoo, thank you very much! :(

Read all the criminal investigations against Maria Duval dba Destiny Research Center and Nicos Daskalos. Check the internet Maria Duval Scams.

Hind sight plus having people that believe their rhetoric is money in the bank!

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

This woman is ruining my 90 year dad's life. He has dementia and he believes in her.

Why can't this *** be arrested?

If there is a ***, she will certainly be there. She has ruined my dad's finances and now I am obligated to help pay for him.

Superstitious people tend to want to believe that there is someone with a direct link to knowledge not available to the common person. So they believe there are psychics or seers or mediums or that there is mojo or curses or bad karma versus good karma or the power to cast spells and curses.

That there is some dark and mysterious ancient power or incantation that will work wonders in the modern world in regards to money, health and love. Well let me tell you. The only psychic power in this world is that which each and every one of us hold within us. The only curses are those that we put upon ourselves.

The only rituals are the ones that our personal superstitions permit us to believe in. The so-called psychics out there are in fact scam artists well versed in the methods needed to separate the gullible superstitious people from their money. Everybody would like to have something for nothing or to have some divine intervention in their lives.

However even if you buy into the divinity theory then you have to realize that you were given free will and all that you do is determined by you....not by some divine being. You bring your own good or bad luck to yourself.

Maria Duval - Letters sent to me asking for money

Maria Duval, and her staff at Destiny Research Centre also have an 'office' in Woodbridge, Ontario, Canada. I get letters frequently offering help with rings, Talismans to assist with love, money etc. How long can a company do this, with no return to the people who trust that maybe there is someone that can help them if they are down or in need of help. Where do they get their marketing lists from to target people, surely with the privacy laws now in place there is something not right about how they get that information, maybe that's what needs to be checked.

Here is the scam-artist's latest address. and mind you, I wanna thank google earth and google maps for their high technology too:

Maria Duval

3105 North Ashland Avenue, #398

Chicago, IL 60657

and guess what address this is y'all? The UPS Store!!! This lady or man or transexual or whatever the *** he or she is and ***-artist is using a mailbox address from The UPS Store in the poor area of Chicago, Illinois. Google Street View shows the entire area, and the area is of a low-income area with lots of businesses like "mom and pop" dry cleaners, I see a Baskin 'n Robin's Icecream place, i see a pizzeria in the area, things of those business natures in the area, but overall, the area looks rundown totally.

So that is her or his new address now as of May 11, 2013, a UPS Store mailbox- #398. So I'm presuming that he or she is living somewhere in Chicago, IL. and let me just mention that on the top of the green-colored, 5-page letter is a letterhead that says "Hotel del Mar, Boutique Hotel & Spa.

So I truly believe that this person is running a scam and an elaborate scheme most definitely. How they got my address and sent me this letter? Possible via a directory of some sort with a list of potential entrepreneur names, address, etc on it. you know, something of that nature. but don't send this person your money, or send him or her or the "11 ($0.46) postage stamps either in lieu of and/or option amount of $5 for some book of pamphlet entitled, "Wealth and Happiness In Your Future," and a free gift which is entitled, "Grand Esostatic Protection Ritual.

again, THANK GOD for Google Maps and Streetview that you can physically and literally see the surroundings and the type of environments there are. again, a poor-looking, low-income area. smdh at her. or him.

I am really upset, I had a feeling to look her up I am a mother of 6 kids and I am doing kemo treatments. I started to get things from her and I really had a lot of hope with her, I wanted to belive that good things were fially going to happen for me.

I am only 29 years old and it has been really hard taking care of my kids and being sick, I truley thought this women was real and the one time I felt like giving up she sends me a letter out of the blue when we are at our worst, man I feel like a fool. I am a really good person I give to anyone who needs help and we help kids all the time I really thought this was going to happen. She said on Febuary 7th 2012 I would come into a lot of money and I would not have to worrie anymore!!!

My heart hurts now that I feel for that. :cry

I just received Maria Duval's convincing prediction on how lucky my deceased mother-in-law is going to be next year.

She's telepathic alright, getting scammed buying mailing lists from 10 years ago (That's when my mother-in-law passed) shows just how much are all of her degree's and awards are really worth.

I wish you luck in finding someone to impose some sort of penalty to the people running this scam.

If not karma can be cruel sometimes.

Blessing 1: A Double Portion—“The Lord will answer and say to His people, “Behold, I will send you grain and new wine and oil, and you will be satisfied by them.... Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice, for the Lord has done marvelous things!… Rejoice in the Lord your God; For He has given you the former rain faithfully, and He will cause the rain to come down for you—the former rain, And the latter rain in the first month.” (verses 19,21,22,23)

Blessing 2: Financial Outpouring—“The threshing floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with new wine and oil” (verse 24).

Blessing 3: Restoration—“So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the crawling locust, the consuming locust, and the chewing locust, My great army which I sent among you” (verse 25).

Blessing 5: A Divine Presence—“Then you shall know that I am in the midst of Israel: I am the Lord your God and there is no other. My people shall never be put to shame” (verse 27).

Blessing 6: Blessings on Your Family—“And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions. And also on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days. And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: blood and fire and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord” (verses 28,29,30,31).

I too responded to one of Maria Duval's letter and when her predictions did not come true, I wrote a polite letter asking for a refund. It took about 4 weeks, but today I received a refund check for $45 from her. I would write her again and explain your dire circumstances and ask for a refund.

Maria Duval (psychic) did not deliver the bracelet i ordered

For the last few months, I have been receiving letters from a fortune teller from Sparks, Nevada by name of Maria Duval. In most of her letters, she claims to predict that I am to recieve lots of money in the near future, and that she was going to guarantee that I am in a period of good luck. And that the only way to get all the money I was to get was that she will send a certain ritual for about $40.00. Because it was almost Christmas time, with the bracelet that she was offering me i decided to send her money for the bracelet. My intentions were to send it as a Christmas present to a relative. To date I have not received the bracelet nor the money. I have sent several letters for the bracelet or the money

Maria Duvall

We were lookinng for a car on craig's list and the car she was selling seemed like a dream! we emailed her and we were curious on why the price was so low she said it was because it was her dead son's car and that he died in an auto car accident with his finacee driving home from his little brother's birthday party and that it brung back to many bad memories for her and she just wanted it gone. We were sucked in then when we were going to set up an arrangement to meet her she said she moved to augusta ME because of a new job and that she could send us car via ebay vehicle purchase protection and she will cover the shipping charge and that there is a seven day testing period. This story just sounds too suspicious and when i typed her name on this website several pages of her name appeared. DO NOT TRUST THIS WOMEN! her email adress she used is mariaduvall@live.com it was a good looking car too!

Maria Duvall complaint

Today I received another letter promising a ritual she would do for me on April 3 during the night of the Black Moon, when certain planets will be lined up on this one and only night of this planetary confughration. If I just send $10

I will be blessed with at least $25,000.

I seem to remember sending her $10 before so decided to look on the Internet, I found this. So of course it's a scam, an age old scam. If you can, watch on old movie maybe 1931 called "Sucker Bait" That's what we are if we fall for this trick: Suckers. HaHa :p

I returned the item in a timely fashion and was not charged anything at first, but 2 weeks later my charge card was debited for the full amount and have yet to receive a refund.

Maria Duval got the better of me!

I had been receiving letters from the Destiny Research Center / Maria Duval for some time. I made the mistake of opening one of these letters one day and feeling at an all time low, I responded hoping that I could change my life around, We all want health, happiness and prosperity. Boy! Did I Get suckered?! I sent her a total of $128.00, but for all I can see I was paying for letters with empty promises. I was promised winnings on January 28 and February 15. I was even given 4 lucky numbers to play. What a fool! To think that there was actually someone out there with a gift to help improve my life. I now find that I am receiving letters constantly and frequently. I hardly have time to respond to one letter before the next one arrives trying to convince me that I should buy the next talisman. I hope the authorities are able to shut this service down for preying on trusting fools. I've been scammed for the FIRST and LAST time.
