Whilst listening to a radio station, WZSP-FM 105.3, Manuel Landaverde heard a Spanish language commercial for a psychic.
Being a little down on his luck, Landaverde decided to contact her.
They met several times at the woman’s home in Avenue Drive West.
Here Landaverde confided that his construction business wasn’t faring too well and that he needed some help.
The woman, of course, had the perfect solution.
By the 27th of January she had persuaded Landaverde to bring her $32000 to be blessed.
While he was there she went through the usual(?) routines of cracking eggs and waving candles but had to finish the ritual overnight (you knew she’d say that, right?).
Not sleeping too well, Landavarde returned the following morning to collect his “lucky money”.
Not surprisingly, it was gone, as was all traces of the woman who had scammed him out of it.
Checking with the owner of the property, Landavarde soon discovered that the apartment had been emptied out.
