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."
Monetary Loss: $1000.
