Clear case of FRAUD!!

1.0
Details
Too many literatures too many fake and false promises of prophesies, a trapped soul as I was in a period of hopelessness started from around 1999 till 2004 thereabout. Her demonic charm will hook you from the first letter of false prophesies and solutions with items like bracelets, necklace, etc., all to keep the mind trapped. I lost thousands and thousands in hope of getting any of those endless promises of good outcome after doing as instructed in her endlessly long literatures and manuals! She even sold my information to her other accomplices sending things from France and other parts of the world (But like her that claimed to be in France, I know later it was fraud) with the same stories and expecting money for various things like rituals and other claims that never materialise in any form but financial loss and brainwashing! Please, People should stay way from such fraudsters, especially young vulnerable people they prey on. People like Maria Duval are never noticed as fraudsters but they are highly professional in the smooth operations!

Maria Duval - Review in Professional Services category from Esko, Minnesota

Maria Duval took me for $45 dollars. I hope she does not sleep at night as I read how many people she does this to. I have tried to write to her many times she is a fraud and scam artist. Cult is her game

You have to look at the fine print in any offer, it states for entertainment purposes. She is just offering her services just as any other casino, bar, poker game or drug of choice.

She is not responsible for losses and bets you place on her. It took me a couple mailings from her to realize I can create a great life without her visions and papers. She gives regret that's for sure.

Tells you what you already know about yourself!! : ) Good luck

PREY ON THE ELDERS!!!!

Be aware of scams. Any time you're requested to send money to get something by psychic's; you might as well go to one in person if you feel that it is necessary. I'm sad to say no matter how many times I've told her over a couple months she still sent her checks which is money she doesn't have to spare. My mother, an 83 year old lady, had been sending checks for a couple of weeks before this was caught. She worked for years for what she has and this Destiny Research Center is a SCAM!!! Contacted the bank and they were such a big help. There is a separate company that handles the payments so you don't really make contact with them. People please check on the elders in your family or spread the word in the community.

Psychic....my A**.......Mail Scam.......YES!!!! SENIORS BEWARE, Check your parents mail.

This woman has been scamming my elderly father for years now. No fortune,and no good health,....just stealing his money and making unfulfilled promises. I guess her Psychic *** didn't see me coming! The government should spend more time on these scammers putting an end to this *** and less time on useless other *** they pretend to do. Who believes this stuff? Obviously the elderly, and that is exactly who they prey on. These people should be ashamed of themselves. Why hasn't someone in the news media mentioned this yet? Maybe noone has told them yet. Guess what, they will find out now.

A letter, unsolicited, arrived in my mail several days ago. The five page, single spaced, proceeded to advise me that on December 4, 2014, I would acquire riches in the amount of millions of dollars.

She guaranteed the receipt of these riches, and if not fulfilled, she would refund the $149 she had requested to apply her magic, thus ensuring the fulfillment of the promised good fortune.

Suffice to say, I refused to accept Ms. Duval's obvious fraudulent and deceptive correspondence and did not fall prey to the scam by not forwarding the requested $149.00.

Told me my birthday made me special.

Maria has been sending me letters for years with parchments that are to eliminate evil and bring luck and romance in my life, but I must hurry because time is running out. Well, that time has come and gone and I am still not rich and broker than ever and no romance for sure. I still get the mail and I stop sending money and she continues to send. So glad that I looked up this name on the internet and glad she will never get another penny from me. GOD is the answer to everyone's needs. Yvette of Maryland

Sent check to Marie Duval --- No response

My name is John F. Kirkconnell, 62 Fordson Avenue, Cranston, R.I. 02910-5911. I received a letter from Marie Duval dated May 27, 2014. I responded by sending a check- # 255, $ 10,00, on June 10, 2014. The letter stated that something very special was going to happen on June 27th, 2014. WELL I have not received a thing yet from her. For many, many years I have sent to her for readings and have never had any problem before. Please answer ASAP to jkirkconnell@verizon.net God Bless PS If I do not receive an answer from her in the near future I will be obligated to report this to my Attorney Generals office in Providence, R.I.

Maria Duval - Destiny Research Center preys on the elderly to get their money

We have repeatedly requested to have my elderly mother's address removed from the mailing list and the junk mail still arrives every week. My mother has been very gullible with her correspondence with this affiliation and quite frankly, we are tired of the excessive amounts of psychic promises, sweepstakes offers, and charitable organizations requesting money nearly on a daily basis. There is no contact information other than what is on the remittance envelope. Maria Duval and this Destiny Research Center needs to be stopped. Not only is it harassment, but it is elderly abuse by continuously preying/asking for money for services that are absurd.

mail *** artist

Have been getting her mail for a while. Got a picture of a bracelet, thought it was pretty. Major mistake. I wear magnets for my health, so I sent for it, but in return got a bunch of *** as she wanted to do magic for me. When I figured this was a talisman I sent it back, told her I didn't want to feel obligated on doing this and don't believe in it. One week I got at least five letters. She has me confused with someone else. I will not give her any personal information as I believe this is witchcraft. Sorry I liked the bracelet. It had magnets and I have used magnets for my back in the past. She is still sending me mail. I am returning her mail with witchcraft and demonic on it. Return to sender. I don't want her business, she preys on the elderly. I hope she gets the message. Next I will contact the better business, BBB.

WHAT A RIP OFF!!!

Let's just say I would have as much to show if I would have just thrown my money out a window!!!I wanted to believe so badly!!! I sent money 3 times, got my reply 2-3 weeks after my BIG windfall dates AND a request for more money. Oh, did anybody else notice she gives her 100% guarantee of satisfaction ...OMG... What a fool I am!! Feel free to ask for it but don't hold your breath. If my post keeps even one person from wasting their money I will be happy. AND also be careful...she has a male friend you may get mail from and he also is a part of her Destiny Research Center
