Here’s one thing Florida-centered psychic Rose Marks maybe failed to see in her future: a 10-calendar year jail sentence.
But probably she must have. She was, right after all, stealing a ton of funds from unsuspecting shoppers. Rose Marks and eight members of her spouse and children had been accused and convicted of bilking somewhere around $25 million out of her consumers above the course of various a long time. The fraud was as straightforward as it was wicked. Mentally manipulate susceptible folks, and persuade them that the “short-term” surrender of huge quantities of funds and jewels would serve as a sacrifice that would appease evil spirits and make them go away. When the bad luck vanished, the money and jewels would be returned.
That is, of program, until you happen to “misplace” the sacrifices and never give anything again.
On this episode of Dirty Income, co-hosts Jon Compact and Dan Bova discuss with writer Tori Tefler, who chronicled Marks’ crimes and the dastardly deeds of other feminine criminals in her reserve Self-confident Females. Tefler breaks down Marks’ scheme, describing how and why she was able to influence so numerous men and women that she was the response to their prayers instead than the starting of their worst nightmares.
