Astrology and Psychic Scams:
Angela Almera

Another so-called psychic, Angela Almera (from the Netherlands) is exposed as a fraud on many websites and forums. Western Australia's government has declared her a fake:

"Clairvoyant Angela Almera, from the Netherlands, is retiring and wants you to be the very last person she is ever going to help to become a winner.

In personally addressed letters, Angela claims you are experiencing urgent money problems. But she can use her psychic powers to help you win one of the biggest September lottery jackpots.

Angela claims she has already provided 177 winning lottery numbers to people and is world famous.

She claims to have appeared on television and radio, and some experts call her the “Greatest Psychic in Europe”.

...

Angela claims that she can pick your lottery numbers by performing a very powerful magic ritual, which will enhance your winning potential.

“I will then travel telepathically to a parallel universe and ask the Astral Powers to give me precise information about future events”, she writes.

All she asks in return is $67 to compensate her for her time.

As the government points out, Angela is no different from any other psychic scammer. Don’t be fooled by the personally addressed mail; either in the mail / post or email. The mail has been bulk mailed from overseas. Undoubtedly, thousands of other people have probably received the same letter, with their name on it.

If you received a letter from a psychic, please send us a copy! This is only one example of this so-called psychic’s letter. There may be other letters peddling similar useless lucky charms and paraphernalia.

See this page for how to try to get a refund and how to stop their emails.
