Man sues psychic who 'promised to remove ex-girlfriend curse'

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

A California man is suing a psychic who he says falsely claimed she could remove a curse put on his marriage by a witch hired by his ex-girlfriend.

Mauro Restrepo said Sophia Adams promised she could save his marriage if he paid $5,100 (£3,742) to exorcise the spell, according to a fraud suit filed with the Torrance Superior Court.

Ms Adams allegedly told Mr Restrepo he and his family would be "unhappy and in danger" if the curse was not lifted.

He is now seeking $25,000 in damages.

"Then again - proving that it doesn't exist is likely to be just as difficult."

You never have to prove a curse doesn't exist. That's not the extraordinary claim, lol. If someone thinks anything like that exists, the burden of proof is on them.

I don't think you can sue a 'psychic' for not delivering either, just like how you can't sue a religious leader like a minister for BSing you.

Yes, sounds straight to me.

Right, then we can extend this subject of curse to religion : proving that God doesn't exist.

I do hope the courts get rid of this stupidity quickly and charge the persons for a waste of the courts time. They have enough on their agendas without having to deal with frivolity.

People handing over cash hoping to remove an imaginary curse. Doesn't this happen on a wide scale every Sunday morning?

I actually wonder how popular the paranormal would be if more people were held accountable for their claims. 

Not nearly as much as it is presently I would imagine.
