- Email and text
Deceptive offers received through mail, email or online offering psychic services such as:
- lottery number predictions
- a lucky charm
- removing a jinx
You need to pay a fee, usually in cash, to sign up or continue services. After you pay the initial fee, the scammer sends a follow-up message. They state that your name will be sent to collections if you don't send more payments, or they'll place a curse on you.
Victims have reported they've received these solicitations from Canada, the United States, and the Netherlands.
