This is the False Face of an International Scam
Even Her Site Tells You She's Fake
Gabriella is not a real psychic. She is not even a person. Section 10 in her website's "Terms of Service" webpage bluntly says: "Gabriella and all the characters involved in the website's content and e-mails sent, are fictional characters. The pictures used on the website are for illustration purposes only." (See proof that "she's" a stock photo here. Her "Facebook fan page" photos are stock photos too.)
Still want a psychic reading from an admitted fake? Read again Gabriella's "Terms of Service" page, Section 2, which clearly states: "ALL READINGS ARE FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES ONLY AND NO GUARANTEE CAN BE GIVEN AS TO ACCURACY." And read the 160 comments below this article, where others tell about their dealings with "Gabriella Psychic."
If you still want expensive entertainment and a fake psychic reading, then by all means send your information, and "Gabriella Psychic and Spiritual Medium," who is a computer and nothing else, will send an email with a confirmation link. It might say, in part, “our meeting is no accident. . . .The proof of this is that I’ve just now had a vision: United States, that’s where happened [sic]. That’s why I’ve decided to let you benefit from a special priority Reading. Please, note that I can only do that for people for which I feel a deep and special connection.”
An hour or two after I sent my information "Gabriella" emailed me: “Yes, Sylvia, in you I have discovered someone of high morals and ethics who is also extremely sensitive.” Using a different name, birth date and email address, I requested another “reading" and got one exactly the same. Both times Gabriella recommended a “Grand Indepth Astral Reading.” But her "inner voice" told her I couldn’t pay $200, her usual fee, so she will charge me only $49. She furnished a convenient link for my credit card or PayPal payment. A bit later I got an email saying slyly, “I know you have read my email.” "She" knows because I gave her that confirmation link that let her track me. The next email begins, “Sylvia, I don’t want to panic you, but…” and further emails pestered me every few hours until I unsubscribed.
Either Robert or Patrick, He's Fake
Gabriella's video testimonials include "Robert from Minneapolis" whose label says his name is Patrick, and "Nancy Johnson," an American quoted as saying, "Gabriella's advices are priceless to me," a clearly non-American grammatical construction. Yes, "Gabriella" has a Facebook fan page. But remember her own website says she is fake. Gabriella's bio says she studied astrology alongside a 33rd degree Grand Master and is the only Westerner taught "the secrets of" celestial magic by “the great Indian Master Shri Maliki.” Then there’s a quote from Clairvoyance Mag : “Several foreign magazines have already voted Gabriella ‘Best Psychic of the Year’…”
Needless to say, there is no Clairvoyance magazine or “Best Psychic of the Year” award. Her Indian Master is not referenced anywhere else on the Net; “Maliki” is in fact a form of Sunni Islam canon law, unrelated to “celestial magic.” The title “Grand Master” is given to every top officer in local freemason chapters, and their “33rd degree” designation, although it sounds dramatic, is meaningless, like the honorary degrees that colleges give their wealthy donors. Even if Masons were astrologers, which they aren’t, their men-only club wouldn’t be training women. Gabriella's readings mentioned no planets, no zodiac signs, and gave no indication that "she" knows or practices astrology at all. I foresee that it’s best if you avoid Gabriella. She's about as psychic as a toilet seat. Rating: zero stars out of five.

This is astroshit. Garbage. Mostly people of goed will and who suffer of being alone can be vitim of that. It is all fake. They are out of your money and don"t give a damn about people.
Psychic Sun on March 08, 2013:
Maybe everyone on here should pop on to Gabriella Psychic "public figure" on facebook and send a lovely message about her work, there are many who believe and go on there to talk to her. These scammers actually log in to the page and post up cute little pictures of puppy dogs and kittens and meditational video's, calling everyone their friends so as to make her more real, myself and some other friends who are so appalled by this behavior have been very busy mutilating this page. That's just going way to far as far as I'm concerned even for the likes of them. Sylvia, I think you are one awesome lady, I am a psychic and pride myself on my honesty where clients and reading are concerned. I feel very passionate about this subject so forgive me if I seem a bit over the top. I care.
Psychic Sun on March 08, 2013:
Just so everyone knows, I have been very busy On Gabriellas facebook page, hope she loves my work xxx
Sylvia Sky (author) from USA on December 29, 2012:
I love your comment, pi131416, and learned from it.
pi31416 on December 28, 2012:
A few weeks ago, out of playful boredom, I answered one of Gabriella's ads. The same Gabriella as yours, or at least she's using the same photograph. I gave my real name, just in case she would use numerology and my real date of birth, just in case she would use astrology. Soon after, I received this "urgent" message:
"read quickly this is urgent
It has now been several days since I completed your grand astral reading and you still haven't discovered what these important revelations can tell you.
I'm especially surprised that you haven't replied since you seem to be in a difficult and possibly confrontational situation at the moment. In fact, because you are hesitating, I decided to read the cards for you one more time in order to explore your different potentials for success, happiness and wealth.
A very large sum of money (several million) could be coming your way in the next few days. This can happen when your dominant astral winnings planet comes into perfect conjunction with House II, which is the astrological house that symbolizes money and material accomplishments."
There and then I knew it was all taurine excrement. I had provided my date of birth, as asked, but I had not been asked for my time of birth, nor for my place of birth. So it was impossible to know where my Houses lay in my natal chart.
Just today I received another urgent message. Here is the beginning:
"My Dear __PRENOM_ ,
This year of 2013 will be a particularly important one for you."
Oh my, a software glitch gives the game away! "Prénom" is "First name" in French. Gabriella is using letter-generating software apparently developed in a French-speaking country (France? Canada?)
Angie on October 21, 2012:
i clicked on the Gabriella ad on facebook.Apparently the scammers have made enough money to even advertise on facebook.I think we should all go and report the page or ad to facebook.I sent a request,just for fun.I got a long response within an hour.Some of the descriptions about my personality and current situation were accurate.But being the skeptic that iam,i figured out that those personality traits could be traced to people that have gone through some stuff.Therefore,they were too general for me.At the end,it asked for a $49 and i knew i wasnot going to pay for that.lol.I got entertained a little bit though.

I understand the irony, henry. I have several times requested that GoogleAds block certain ads from appearing on my HubPages. They don't comply. Readers, I hope, will rely on their own good sense.
henry on July 16, 2012:
i don't understand why a site that tells you about all these fakes also has ads for a lot of them on the site as well what's up with that.

You can create your own Talisman, with your own energy. Just look up your Zodiac sign. Look up Talisman of your rule Planet, and make it with your own hands during its month. Day is : Thursday. Growing Moon. Find Phases of the Moon on the Internet (Northern/Southern Hemisphere).
Just draw it and put it in your wallet.
Passingtrough on June 24, 2012:
I would agree with Sylvia, and I am ready to sign my name under every word she wrote here. Sweet and very honest person, thank you Sylvia. You are saving a lot of people from throwing away their privacy and money.
Real Talented Psychics are very-very rare. You will not find their names or directions on the Internet, and you have to be very-very lucky to know one in person.
Times are hard, save your money, stop feeding crooks.
Thank you. Be ALL safe and healthy.
kristel on May 25, 2012:
just remembered her name; Maria Duval.
so another fake , just saw on google others that had been pestered by her letters.
this was by snailmail, not email though
kristel on May 25, 2012:
i answered an add in a magazines ones to get a talisman from a famous psychic in France.
i liked the picture of the amulet so i wrote to get one.
well...the so called talisman was no neckless...simply a sticker!!!!!
but then the letters started to show up in my mail every few weeks, and they told me i HAD TO reply and buy a book from this woman.
her psychic abilities had some info i just had to have...funny that she wrote in MY laguage and looking like it was written by hand. my name was written in every other sentence but you could see it was filled in but i could tell it was meant to be as personal as possible.
the letters got worse and worse and threatening saying i would get a serious illness, loose my home and my family and so on if i didn't get this help from this lady!
it was really disturbing and i so regret i threw away these letters!! i showed them to some friends of mine and they got chills from reading them, the letters were long and full of threats saying i had so and so man days to reply before hell broke loose in my life.
well, i ignored it all though!
her name was Maria something starting with a D.
the page i wrote to initially also showd her in several news paper articles saying she had assisted police in many matters.
there are many many fake ones out there so my advice is to always google a name before you say yes to anything.....its how i came upon this site now after seeing an add for Gabriella on my Facebook page. so i reported it as spam and false advertising
maria on March 17, 2012:
thank you so much for everyone posting on this site....I too was about to be scammed!
Sylvia Sky (author) from USA on March 11, 2012:
If you already know the information, why are you paying Gabriella to tell it to you?
Monique on March 10, 2012:
I have had Gabriella send me information that nobody else other then myself would know she sighted me ready her email which is impossible to know if you arent gifted

tis kind of people will sure be put in hell . how can they cheat others hard earned money.
C.C. Strapcock on February 12, 2012:
I'm Belgian and found her site via some other site and signed up for a free reading. It was about 1.30 A.M. and less than half an hour later I got a reaction from my 'best friend' who cares about me and works even at nighttime, so it seems.
All I had to do was send about 50 euro to her account and luck and happiness would come my way, which I earned, me such an emotional and honest person :-)-)
And she knew so much about me. But then again all my sufferings are also the things others go through. And a suspicious mind doesn't get helped along if I know that there are computer programs who use your IP to connect you to a city nearby. In the first line of 'her' letter I was told that the city of Liège (never been there,but not so far away) would have something to do with my future.
Because I didn't react to this first reading, the next day I got a new mail of my worried friend. She reminded me of her offer to be the luckiest person on earth if I just would pay 50 euro. If I didn't do this in 340 hours events would go past salvation...I got about 200 hours left. I can't wait till Armageddon is going to strike me down :-)-)
Sylvia Sky (author) from USA on February 08, 2012:
Gabriella's own site admits "she" is a fiction and a fake, and that her "readings" are "for entertainment only". I don't see a lot of room for discussion there.
cannotfindserver on February 08, 2012:
what I received from Gabriella does hold a good deal of accuracy!!! Can someone explain how it happens if it's fake. It's quite personal as if meant for me alone.
How do we explain that? Rather than having a gut feel let's check the facts. The question is not whether she's fake or genuine but the accuracy of information provided to us so far about ourselves. How many of you have the same feeling? Eager to hear from you all!!!

Hi from the Netherlands
I had just received a free reading from "her" but before paying for a further analysis, I checked her on internet and I found out that an Angela in the Netherlands got exactly the same reading as I got.
Thanks for your forum and keep up the good job !
TCO on January 04, 2012:
An ad just brought me to here website. And even though I wasn't fooled, I'm shocked. How could someone do this and live with it? There sure are a whole lot of horrible people in this world. And this is coming from the mouth of a 16 years old…

FP on December 20, 2011:
The ones I got didn't even replace all the variables with their values... In one sentence it said "Dear %PRENOM". ;)
Everything about it is so tacky... LOL
LIV on December 16, 2011:
Yes, I have got this mail from Gabriella!! Thank you for given me this information. Now I just have to contact my bank..... feel very stupid! And now that I needed some help to see thing clearer.
shib on December 13, 2011:

Pedro on November 30, 2011:
I was just about to submit my credit card details for Gabriella to debit ZAR179 for a reading,when I decided to google the name.I almost exposed myself to this scam.I thank GOD for giving me the wisdom to want to know more about Gabriella.
Ashley on November 29, 2011:
I tought the exact same thing, she wanted to charge me 19,00 instead of 49,00 and after that she offerded me another option like a book she wrote 7 secrets of happiness, I went on google and didn't see any Gabriele who wrote this book, after that I came to this site and nog I know it is really BULLSHIT
Grace on November 26, 2011:
I've analyzed the emails sent to me by two scammers; Grabriella and Gina from www.aboutastro.com.
Here's what I'd like to share with you.
1. They get some information about the situation you are facing.
2. They send long mails in a brief period of time.
3. They say they have established a special connection with you.
4. They predict that a lucky event will occur soon.
5. They try to convince you that in order for it to happen you must have a special reading.
I've met some good astrologers in my life and they never look for clients.
Sylvia Sky (author) from USA on November 24, 2011:
Translation of above (Italian to English): to exist thanks to you for opening my eyes I was going to fall through but I felt within me that something was not true so I searched and I found that was a bluff and instead of feeling guilty about not sending money cash are now satisfied thanks to the world of people like you who are the real people who have helped me.
sirod on November 24, 2011:
grazie a voi di esistere per avermi aperto gli occhi stavo per caderci ma avvertivo dentro di me che c'era qualcosa di non vero perciò ho cercato e ho rilevato che era un bluff ed invece di sentirmi colpevole di non mandare i soldi contanti ora sono soddisfatta grazie al mondo di persone come voi che siete state le vere persone che mi hanno aiutato
Sylvia Sky (author) from USA on November 13, 2011:
You do not have to pay anything. Gabriella is a fake; don't pay her at all. The "free reading" is the same for everybody who registers.
Susana on November 13, 2011:
Hello, I made registration for "free reading"..in Gabriella´s page. Now I see that they want some money..but I didn't order smthing. I have quastion do I have to pay? And will happen something if I will not pay? Thank you for answer:)

People of the World!
"Gabriella the Psychic" is the same as "Joe the plumber", or YOU an alien from planet Z.
It s a BIG time scam.
The only ones who are winning Jackpot is these group of crooks.
I do not read tarot cards, but believe in Justice (Optimist). Here is my prediction: Day will come for them to "enter" their "new cycle of life" in prison. Where they belong.
High 5 everybody, we ll make it happen

How to turn FBI on these group of criminals called "Gabriella"? Where should we start?
I can get rid of them on my e-mail easy by blocking, but our CCs are not protected from them.

Ciao Gabriella,non so come contattarti...
brandon on October 13, 2011:
Actually knowing she is fake makes me feel a bit bad as her descriptions about my life were pretty close...which just makes me feel bad as they are all guesses lol.
Kourt on October 11, 2011:
damn... she made me think i was somthin special... wth? that's what i get for bein a dumb ass i guess, aleast i googled that hoe before i sent any money.. lesson learned fasho!
Solomon on October 05, 2011:
LOL I just tried it because i wanted a good laugh. Anyway the real psychics wont broadcast it.
amanda on October 05, 2011:
I feel so bad. I truly belived in her an thought she was helping me. I kept telling her that i didn't have any money an she kept giving me reading, a lot of them hit very close to home, an some of them where very 'fakish" i guess. she told me i had these blockages that where preventing me from being happy which in away i beleive is true, but then she was telling me that i have phyic ability. It was all just crazy, I have spoken with pyhics on the phone at www.keen.com an I was just wondering if that website was a scam to.
Sylvia Sky (author) from USA on September 29, 2011:
Fix it so her emails go straight to your junk mail folder.
Angela on September 29, 2011:
I started with a free reading and kept on getting free ones. They never asked for money directly but, said you could give a donation. One said only $5.00 so I figured ok its only $5.00 to loose and I paid by paypal figuring if its a scam or something I only loose that and would not give out my credit card numbers. Then I kept on receiving more and more e-mails after this. They started having from $19.95 donation to $49.00 donation and more. I figured its BS so I googled and found this site which is awesome. Anyway in the beginning everyone please understand with the economy and life we are all going there for the same thing so the readings could all be the same but, pertain to any of us as we are going through the same turmoil but, in different things. Thank you so much for posting this site and I will also report it as fraud. I am glad I did not fall into giving more money. Now how do I stop the e-mails. Maybe just delete them and they will stop over time. Hopefully they will not re-charge me for anything on paypal but, I will also write them just in case. Thank you. :-D
Irene on September 27, 2011:

thanks for your help
salvo on September 04, 2011:
to write thank you. I did search and I found your writing to investigate the accuracy of Gabriella Superbikes. Gabriella also have ads on sites with Turks. I think this person is fake. rings true. cyprus.com | fake. the religion of Islam is forbidden to tell the future. Gabriella is looking bedeva fortune. The Turks do not astrologists money. :)

she told me many interesting things about my life and she wanted only to take 1 dollar so i was checking everything and calling the phones and undestood is a fake as i thought . be careful my friends bye
michael musya on July 16, 2011:
some of your comments are way out of line. Gabriella helped me personally with my personality and stuff that i only understands all from filling her online form.
Westerners, this world was not made modern, it was gradually built to be. Gabriella only practices what the rest of us conveniently want to forget.
You guys; do you see what the world has come to?, the church? devil worship? I'm embarrassed by some of your comments.
Just remember, Gabriella cannot help you if you have no problem!!! This is an online service, you will surely get automated emails (convenient forgetting).
I'm black, helped by a white lady using ancient arts there you go

anonymous2011 on July 10, 2011:
I had posted about a week ago that I was a believer because she was able to pick up on things about my ex that the psychics had told me. Well, I paid her the monies for the grand reading and that was a TOTAL waste. I actually got more insight prior to that.....SEVEN SECRETS TO HAPPINESS???....I have a good one....spend your money on hypnosis to get the thoughts of someone out of your head as opposed to a spiritual séance to win someone back who wasn't even worth it in the first place!!
MrX on July 09, 2011:
I can only say I was surprised over the accuracy of my profile. Yesterday I was thinking about some issues directed to Gabriella and today I received answers in my email. Even what was more surprising in the email she’s wrote was; what was happening today was entirely my own fault and she was right, I found the short private email from Gabriella in my inbox later on today, I am surprised.
I am an engineer and it’s the first time I have ever used anything like this and it was more for a try then a need. I do believe in numbers and systems but I have to say someone may pickup the right frequency for communication.
anonymous2011 on July 05, 2011:
I would have to agree that at first I thought this thing was a scam, but after sending in for a reading for my ex boyfriend and her service coming back with the same statements about him that had been made by several psychics I had spoken with on the phone, I am convinced that her site is legitimate. I got tired of the ongoing creepymails as several have noted on here, but what was even creepier was that she was dead on with respect to her synopsis of my ex.....to the letter....so before you totally write her off as a scam as I did initially, you have to consider that she is getting her info from somewhere and since the info she provided about my ex was so accurate when compared with the other psychics I had spoken with, I am definitely a believer.
Kylie on July 02, 2011:
Thanks for the information. I paid the 49.00 but she doesn't get anymore from me ..... I can tell you are reading this message lol

Takeherdown on June 19, 2011:
Hi, thank you for posting this... wish i had found her a day earlier before i was stupid enough to believer her... should've trusted my instincts.
"She" pissed of the wrong person in me, now i've dedicated myself to getting the website taken down by contacting the site domain host via whois. I highly encourage everyone else to send the host complaints and let them know that they host a fraudulent domain... that's exactly what "she" is committing with this.
Karma's a you-know-what, and its going to bite whoever owns the site harshly in a few weeks time.
Spread the word, tell everyone get that crud off the internet so no one else gets scammed.
cdkennedy59 on June 15, 2011:
I think Gabriela is a definate Fraud. Check this out and see if it sounds familiar to anything any of you got. If it does then please report her. People like this take advantage of other peoples vulnerable sides at the worst times in their lives. People like this must be stopped. I believe in esp and such, but I don't believe in using it as a marketing scam to steal from innocent individuals at a time when they are grasping at straws for answers. http://www.firststop-astrology.com/Astrofacts/Expo...

Dear CP: I don't know about your transactions with Gabriella; I know nobody who ordered the music or canceled such a transaction. Let us know what happens with you.
True psychics are extremely rare; most of us will never meet one. True psychics don't advertise; they don't need to. They get clients by word of mouth. If a psychic is advertising anywhere, he or she is fake. I suggest finding an experienced Tarot card reader to meet with, in person, in your area. They are not psychics but their card readings, if they are skillful, can be very helpful.

I suggest using add-block plus to completely block her site someone close to me has been suckered by her and I'm worried that this person will coninually charge a credit card, what would be the best course of action.?
CP on June 05, 2011:
Please give me your advice about my previous post. Can you tell me the best place to look when trying to find a good psychic?
CP on June 05, 2011:
I ordered something from her site called "The psycho active music of seven chakras". I never got confirmation that the purchase went through. I don't know if it would be something that would be sent to me or downloaded. I came across this site and had my doubts. I try to contact someone to cancel the order and request a refund. The phone number for the site payforweb.com is of a different country and I requested my password to email them and haven't gotten that yet. I also emailed Gabriella with no response yet. Has anyone ever actually contacted the site for Gabriella and was able to speak to anyone? If so, how did you do it? Also, I reported the possible fraudulent activity to my bank and cancelled my card. I have not received the music, because I had just ordered it. I never received confirmation for the order, I only got a duplicate of the message that she sent me when she was going to do my grand reading. Also, do you think that my bank will authorize my dispute?

Is it possible to post a comment warning people its a scam on the wall of Gabriella Psychic on Facebook? She has another Facebook account in Spanish!

Just don't seek truth from online psychics! Common sense should tell that one psychic could not handle hundreds of internet requests daily from worldwide.
Selina on June 02, 2011:
Do you think they manage to get unauthorised credit card details when one request for a free reading and when they reply through Gabriella Psychic website they will advise : "If you are connecting to your Member Space for the first time, please change your password here so that you do not forget it". And then most people might use the same passwod as their e-mail a/c

Dear V.T.: "Magic spells" given on the Internet or by Internet personalities are fake. "Magic spells" that cost a lot of money are fake. A "magic spell" to "remove a curse" is fake.
V.T. on May 28, 2011:
do you know something about magic spells? Is it true or fake?
same as you on May 28, 2011:
I asked for free reading-after that thousands of e-mails-same as yours.She even said that soon I will win the Lottery :))Then reduced the price to $ 19.99....
emmanuel albert on May 24, 2011:
gabriella i cannot send e mail something wrong with your side trying to reach you email@example.com
LOUIS on May 18, 2011:
Interesting how vulnerable people can be. I knew it was no more than automated template responses tapping into universal "fear and hope buttons", the moment I got the first response, but that didn't deter me. I even justified my sheepish behavior with an experimental "Hey let's go with this and see where it takes me attitude Don't lose hope - the positive energy you felt is your own ability to lift yourself. That is real and it's inside of yo. Tap into that and your life will take on the positive changes you truly believed it would.
It was entertaining while it lasted, I'll give it that. The unauthorized card debits should be reported to the relevant credit card fraud authorities. Don't let the site get away with it
dawnne on May 14, 2011:
Oh wish I had looked further into 'Gabriella' ... same *** as the rest of you however, I have paid 2 x amounts $39.90 & 49.90 and now the thief has helped themselves to my credit card of another $39.90. Like you, I have unsubscribed so many times and have logged in to call them theives and demanded money be returned to my account immediately. I continue to receive 3 / 4 or more emails of *** every day claiming not to have heard from me blah blah. Credit card now cancelled!
Catherine on May 12, 2011:
From the initial credit card transaction. What a scam, what rubbish
Sylvia Sky (author) from USA on May 12, 2011:
If you never ordered, how did she get your credit card numbers?
William on May 12, 2011:
I have just cancelled my credit card because I'm being charged for things I have not ordered...........this is the biggest bullshit I've come across
Catherine on May 12, 2011:
This is the biggest scam I've come across. My wife has paid for things that she never received and been charged for things she never ordered. We went to the web-site to notify 'Gabriella' of the issue but have never had a response. What a load of rubbish
cat2 on May 10, 2011:
i never placed any order.
cat2 on May 10, 2011:
Placing a stop payment on a transaction that you approved and validated is punishable by law. Legal action will immediately and systematically be taken for any abusive stop payment that goes against the general terms and conditions of sale , in particular with the legal and banking authorities.
cat2 on May 10, 2011:

scott davey on May 09, 2011:
I sent for the free reading.When I opened the email she sent me one back saying that she knew the moment I read it because she sensed I was online looking at it.What a load of bollocks.She has a program that tells her when the email is opened by someone.That's what I think anyway
Nicol3 on May 07, 2011:
SHE IS FAKE! After searching and finding the terms and conditions of Gabriella's website it clearly stated "ALL READINGS ARE FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES ONLY AND NO GUARANTEE CAN BE GIVEN AS TO ACCURACY" and "GABRIELLA AND ALL THE CHARACTERS INVOLVED IN THE WEBSITE'S CONTENT AND E-MAILS SENT, ARE FICTIONAL CHARACTERS"
cat on May 06, 2011:
I have asked for a free reading, and after that, the HELL started!!! She was sending email after email, EVEN AFTER I UNSUBSCRIBED!!!!! Unbelievable!!! Eventually, I wrote her that I find her emails absolutely stupid and that is she does not stop bothering me, I will take measures!!!
I simply cannot believe people would believe such crap!!! And pay for it!!!
Finally after 3 days of terror and numerous emails (such as one every couple pf hours or so), and after I wrote her my true opinion about her idiotic writings, I got the email that said I have been unsubscribed!!!
So BEWARE!!! Unsubscribing from her website is a JOKE!!!

I like to dip into the fortune mysteries but this Gabriella is like a candy bar in a punch bowl.
She constantly harrasses me about some GRAND benefit then comes up with a new one every time I miss the previous one. She began using comic book characters and very inaccurate spiritual people in history. She also tried using the wrong dates and places for spiritual charms and nonexistant ceromonies.
I tried to unsupscribe her onece and she came back then I could not stop her.
Dudeeee on April 24, 2011:
OMG she was telling me that I was chosen and She has a very deep connection with me and shes going to Fatima in Portugal to make a wish for me. and also she said she can sence I have a Psychic power in me that she wants to help me find.
Commentor on April 16, 2011:
