New York Man Says Fortuneteller Scammed Him Out $700K
NEW YORK — A New York man who sought help from a fortuneteller to fix a romantic relationship says she scammed him out of more than $700,000.
Now the allegations have the Manhattan psychic, Priscilla Delmaro, and another person facing charges of grand larceny. [...]
According to the man, those payments included $80,000 for an 80-mile bridge she said would trap evil spirits into another realm, a $30,000 Rolex she claimed would cleanse the sins of his past and $40,064 for a Tiffany diamond ring to "protect his energy," along with other payments totaling as much as $40,000.
The man— who has not been identified in court documents —told police he had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars before finding out in February 2014 that Michelle had died. But, the man wrote, Delmaro said she could be reincarnated.
More payments and a trip to seek out the "new" Michelle followed before the man said he decided to go to police. By then, he said he was out $713,975.
