Here's an unusual story: a Toronto woman was charged with fraud and pretending to practice witchcraft after she allegedly defrauded an elderly man. She told him that he needed to sell his house to get rid of evil spirits and gave her the proceeds.
From CTV News:
York region police say the 67-year-old victim met with a psychic who used the name Evanna approximately five years ago. “Evanna” allegedly convinced the man that in order to get rid of evil spirits in his home, he had to sell the house and transfer the money to her account, where it would remain until the spirits were gone.
Police said the money was never returned and the victim was asked for another $6,000, which the psychic said she would burn in order to ward off the evil spirits.
CTV News sent a reporter to the woman's residence, which also happens to be her place of business. Guess what she does for a living ...
