In June 2011, a woman who claimed to get her information from angels, called in a tip to the Liberty County Texas sheriff’s office that sent the FBI and officials looked for buried bodies at a home in Hardin. The media heavily covered the story showing the house as the search was underway. The tipster knew details about the house but there were no bodies. She was never charged because the police concluded she did not have criminal or malicious intent. But the home owners will have their say, they have sued the woman for defamation.

Original Source Story
A 36-year-old psychic who claimed to be ridding an Irvine woman of a curse inherited while in her mother’s womb pleaded guilty last week to stealing about $200,000 from the mark.
Lisa Debbie Adams of Los Angeles cut a plea deal Thursday that had her copping to grand theft with a sentencing enhancement for white collar crime exceeding $100,000. In exchange, she’ll avoid jail as long as she repays all the money she stole.
Adams was passing out fliers offering her psychic services in West Hollywood in June 2008 when she spotted the Irvine woman holding a different psychic’s advertisement. After Adams identified herself as a psychic, she warned the woman of a “darkness” around her and advised her to make an appointment for a “cleansing.”
