Maria Duval Sent Letter About Some "Words of Power"
In the letter she states multiple things about words of power and how you can control things (and people) with them. There was a sealed envelope that I immediately shredded before even reading it that has some "Word of Fortune" printed on the inside or something and if you "trust" her, you send it to her with $5. All of this is very offending to me as I am a pagan and using anything magic just gives anyone of more pagan backgrounds a bad name. She also stated so boldly that Native Americans JEALOUSLY hold the healing word of power! That's rude and uncalled for. It states in the beginning "At last, I have a major revelation to make to you... ...a revelation, that could make you win all the money your heart desires. $48,750.00 for a start, how does that sound? ...a revelation that can really bring you everything you want on a golden platter. Yes, I did say "everything"..." Clearly that's too good to be true. Anyone with a brain can tell. I'm only 20 and I won't be caught dead sending this woman money or practically selling my soul to her for her "words". It also states that Wealth, Love (which "can entwine your heart with that of the one you love... FOREVER), General Luck, Influence ("that can influence the person of your choice and gently persuade them to do your bidding."), and a Happy Future are what you'll get from these words of power "as if you had waved a magic wand!!!" It also had a conformation form, second "free" gift form. And a questionnaire that asks if you have financial problems, if you are unlucky or feel you are born under a bad star, if you're working, retired, married, have major problems with family or love life, feel lonely or misunderstood, and if you feel a spell has been cast on you like somebody sent bad luck your way. As well as what your greatest wish is, the question that disturbs you most, your date of birth, time of birth (if known), your town/city, state, country, and e-mail address. Now, both in magic and real life ANYONE who answers those to some woman is without a brain. In magic a person can use your answers and date and time of birth AGAINST you at any time. It's very important stuff that could get you cursed. As for email and location, that's just unsafe in general unless you're writing for a reputable company. I urge anyone who gets a letter like this to shred (don't burn, please) these pages. It save you a lot of heart ache and trouble. This cannot be trusted any father than it can be thrown.
Highland, New York
I had submitted money hoping to get info on my half brother.Her response was always about winning the lottery,getting rich and always asked for more money. I suspected it was a scam and checked web
I wrote letter for the guarantee money back.Two letters produced nothing. In my third letter I said this was just the sort of thing the United States Postal Service postal police would be interested in. And since I have over 25 years with the US Postal Service I suggest they send me my money. Within a week I got a check for $100. They only owed me $90.I cashed it at the bank. I was vulnerable because it was about my family.Now I check rip off report. Have gotten other scams sent to me via u.s. mail. Many of these scams are related and they exchange mailing lists. For example Maria Duval and the Secret Society.Duval still sends me her letters. She probably doesn't know since someone else signed the $100 check. After a while the scam was so obvious. If she owes you money write a strong letter and refer to the guarantee.The State attorney general threat would probably get a response.Never did learn about my brother.Which is why i responded in the first place in case she was real.Always check: name scam? in google to find out !

This scammer ripped my elderly father off for about $6000.
maria duval sent my father some letter and he fell for it she asked for money in return she would predidct things for him and tell him his lucky numbers and a bunch more rubbish that my father at 87 bought into and now he is broke and nothing came true he spent an *** load of money on lottery tickets and trickets that she sent to him saying they were lucky charms, complete ***, I hope these ppl are not able to sleep at night knowing that they have made an independent elderly man dependent on his children....I only know for sure of the $6000 it is probably more but since I have been involved it's been $6000

Offered to send lottery numbers requested $59.00CAD
I had been receiving many letters from Maria Duval at the Woodbridge, Ontario address and threw them in the garbage. Suddenly there was a name change to Destiny Research Centre and on opening the letter saw it was from Maria Duval. Since the request was a small amount $10.00CAD I sent her and before a response i.e ten days another letter arrived requesting $19.00 for lottery numbers( I sent $20.00)still no reply. A third letter came requesting $59.00CAD and on March 28, 2013 I purchased a money order from my bank and mailed said money order to which I have not heard from Maria Duval since. I requested proof of the Money Order being cashed from my bank and now I am prepared to take same to the Metro Police Fraud Squad. The only problem here is that the address is a Postal Box at a main Postal Substation for companies or person to rent these boxes as they have no physical address. The Fraud Squad has requested if I can trace a physical address then they will proceed. Maria Duval is not her name but a pseudonym and it is difficult to trace her real address. I have sent three requests for a refund of the $89.00CAD as her letters always state if not satisfied you can request a full refund; to date there has been no response.
Ordered magnetic north stone
Although I got scammed by her once I din't think that they would take my money and not send the necklace charm. I didn't think it had magic properties I just thougt it would be interesting to have an actual piece of the magnetic north stone. I rarely buy anything since I live off a lousy 255.00 a month disability check-but I have sent three letters asking to either be refunded or send the necklace. No response and it has been 3 months. That 29.99 would buy me food for a week. Why hasn't the BBB done something about her???
Receiving letters from psychics;
I received this letter before more than once and many others from Maria Duval as well as many other people who claim to have the ability of clairvoyance... I'm told that I also have this gift and that I just need to develop it, but I choose not to... It's not a secret that I am in need of money and I've been searching the internet for ways to attain it which I believe is how she knows it. Jesus tells us not to have anything to do with psychics or mediums and He also says to seek ye first the kingdom of God, and all things will be given thee... I believe I need to stop reading these letters and keep my nose in the Word of God. Only then with fervent prayer will my circumstance change... I may or may not ever be rich, but I know my needs will be met because they have been when ever my heart was in the right place concerning Him (God)... It's my belief that clairvoyance is a gift that Satan convinces us to use for his purposes to get our eyes off of Jesus and on to worldly thing. Don't be fooled by them...
Maria Duval - Psychic? I think not!
As hundreds of others have written, I too have received countless letters from Maria Duval, promising the answers to all my problems, be it financial, romantic, career wise - anything you can imagine! And, I, like so many others, have sent in my $45 dollar payment only to receive absolutely nothing but more letters from her, asking for more money. Psychic? I think not - being a Medium myself, I know for a fact that true mediums do not pursue customers in this manner. True psychics view their abilities as "a gift from God" and would never operate in this unethical manner! Be wise - don't send this fraud any more of your hard earned dollars!
Duval is a mailing scam
Please tell this Maria Duval to get a real job, and stop scamming the public. I am sick and tired of her sending me ***, she is a pain to society. She needs to go to jail, one day, she will scam a senior, stop her before this happens. I would like to know what she does to this scammed money she receives. Has she ever worked hard to earn like the rest of the world, or does she only scam. This has been going on for a while, I am giving the full address she sent me. 14-3650 Langstaff Road, # 289, Woodbridge, Ontario L4L 9A8.
TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE OLD
THIS WOMAN HAS TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF MY MOTHER, A RETIRED SCHOOL TEACHER. YOU WOULD THINK MY MOTHER WOULD KNOW BETTER BUT AS MOST OF US KNOW SCHOOL TEACHERS DON'T MAKE AS MUCH AS OTHER WORKING AMERICANS. IN HOPES OF GETTING A CHECK FROM THIS DEVIL "MARIA DUVAL" SHE HAS SPENT MOST OF HER HARD EARNED MONEY ON DUVALS *** PRODUCTS. THIS *** HAS TO STOP IMMEDIANTLY BEFORE OTHER HARD WORKING AMERICANS GET SCAMMED. SHE AND HER COMPANY NEED TO BE CHARGERED WITH ROBBERY AND SENT TO JAIL. IF I EVER FIND OUT WHERE SHE RESIDES YOU BET YOUR BOTTOM I WELL HUNT HERE DONE.

Letters sent,no help
For the last 3 months I received numerous letters from Maria Duval concernimg my financial problems.Instead of receiving the necssary help,I keep getting letter after letter asking for more.Enough is enough.Either back up what you say what you are going to do or leave me the *** alone.NO MORE LIES.It is a *** shame for people to take advantage of the unfortune and rob them of their life savings.Somebody do something about people like her before someone gets emotionally hurt.Words to the wise,put up or shut up!You never know who is watchjng you.Thank you,Carl.
Passed the first test
I am sorry I ever sent money to this ***!!!! I have recieved nothing but more junk mail requesting more money for "SECRETS NEVER BEFORE REVEALED". As a matter of fact I recieve mailings from her every week requesting money for some other cockamamy reason. This company should be investigated by the Government for decieving and praying on peaple that are in need. How does she find us? Since I have sent money my mailbox is full of so called sears physicics and anyone looking for money. Don't send money to any of these people as they are ripping you off.
miss duval had the nerve to write me a letter asking for more money when she didn't even send me the products that she owes me. What a lack of integrity. I used her envelope and wrote her a letter stating that she will not be receiving anymore money. Consumers need to not make purchases unless they have a phone number on the letterhead where they can at least speak to a live customer service person about the status of their orders. If you can talk to her that is a major red flag.All she is doing is taking advantage of low income unsuspecting victims that are struggling. Beware of her
Sydney, Nova Scotia
3rd request from 'destiny research center', with photo and name Maria Duval. have returned entire package at my postage expense 3 times and yet continue to receive her ***. she is another vulture getting rich on other peoples hard luck. i dont even know how she got my address, i dont live in ontario. her address: unit 14-3650 Langstaff Road #289, WOODSTOCK, Ontario L4L9A8. She should be stopped! i know there are a lot of people who are gullible and down on their luck, but there are legitimate ways to get help, jobs or find love. free public institutions will be a better idea than these scammers.
