Fake psychic jailed over $1.6m con

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A woman who claimed to be a fortune teller has been jailed for conning a victim into giving her $1.6m (£1.3m) to lift a family curse.

Sherry Tina Uwanawich, who also goes by the name Jacqueline Miller, was a teenager when she met the victim at the Galleria shopping centre in Houston, Texas, in 2007.

The 28-year-old struck up a conversation with the woman and learned she was a medical student from Brazil and was suffering from depression, having recently lost her mother, according to the Houston Chronicle.

Uwanawich managed to convince the woman to have her fortune read and told her she would be able to find out the cause of her unhappiness.

But "grief vampires" deserve to be imprisoned. People suffering from serious loss are many times not thinking straight.
