( I, LaToya, personally know Doris Johnson. I’ve worked with her in the past. She does have some power, nevertheless, i could see right through her. I’m not going to go into any detail about my story but she tried to take my spiritual energy years ago and i beat her at her own game. I was too smart and too spiritual for her. She’s a con woman. A big liar. And she is in the police database. I’ve got pictures of Doris, and when i told her how i spotted her on a site where she was doing her spiritual work she quickly went and got her photos off the internet along with the site. I fixed her ass!- check out this story below)
Can you prove a curse wasn’t lifted?
Naples woman suing fortune teller Aisling Swift Naples Daily News Originally published 07:16 a.m., November 10, 2008 Updated 07:16 a.m., November 10, 2008 NAPLES, Fla. — How do you prove a curse wasn’t lifted?
That’s the question a Collier County judge will have to determine when the case of a 54-year-old Golden Gate woman suing a fortune teller for fraud, theft and deceptive trade practices heads to court. Eumathe Dufrene is suing Doris Palm & Card Reading on Airport-Pulling Road, alleging that she paid Tiffany Johnson $80 for a card reading on March 8 and then was asked to provide $300 the next day, then more money over several weeks.
Dufrene said she was asked to pay Johnson for medicine to prevent evil and “grave calamities” from being around her family and children and more money after the first “spiritual loan” wasn’t enough to lift the evil. Dufrene ended up paying $13,200 over several weeks in March, according to her lawsuit filed Oct. 28 in Small Claims Court. Johnson, who has a money-back guarantee, promised to return the money, according to the lawsuit, which includes a receipt showing Johnson’s signature that is labeled “Exhibit 1.”
On March 25, after no money was returned, Dufrene went to the business at 1872 Airport-Pulling Road and asked for her money back. But Johnson claimed the evil surrounding Dufrene’s family was causing complications with Johnson’s pregnancy and asked her to call in a couple of days, the lawsuit says. Dufrene called repeatedly and even returned to the business — to no avail.
Her lawsuit seeks the return of the $13,200 and lists the business, Johnson and Dorothy Johnson, the business owner, as defendants. Johnson and her mother, Dorothy, who is known as Doris, deny Dufrene’s account. They say the money was for readings and future readings Dufrene paid for in advance. “She was constantly calling and constantly coming here,” Doris Johnson said as she sat in her business. “The money was for my daughter’s readings, her time.” She said Dufrene was upset because her son was murdered and nothing was done, and she’d also lost her job and was depressed. “She felt so confused and troubled about her son, her life and everything around her,” Johnson said, adding that Dufrene wanted a curse placed on her son’s killer, but they don’t do that type of work and said Dufrene would have to do that in her country, Haiti. They told her to be positive and to move forward with her life, to rely on God and seek counseling or a doctor. “Whatever was wrong, it was God’s will, but don’t blame God, and be happy, be the best you can, be positive,” Johnson said her daughter told Dufrene and Dufrene’s daughter Vanessa, who always accompanied her.
Tiffany Johnson said she gave birth to a daughter just weeks ago and was pregnant at the time Dufrene kept returning, so she wasn’t able to spend more time with her. She said Vanessa Dufrene came to her before they sued and she offered to provide more readings without charge to help her. Dufrene’s lawyer, Adam Oosterbaan of Naples, denied Dufrene’s payments were for future readings.
“They can explain that to a jury,” Oosterbaan said of the Johnsons. Dufrene declined comment on her lawsuit. There are no other similar lawsuits involving the business filed in Collier County. The Johnsons’ attorney, David McElrath, could not be reached for comment. A spokeswoman for Jury Verdict Research in Horsham, Penn., said the firm doesn’t have information on verdicts or settlements involving palm or card readers or fortune tellers. But published news accounts show a handful of dissatisfied customers have sued fortune tellers, including a case that gained national headlines involving a Jamaican mystic who called herself Miss Cleo and advertised herself on late-night TV infomercials.
In 2002, the Federal Trade Commission settled a lawsuit filed in Miami against two Fort Lauderdale firms involving Miss Cleo’s services. The FTC said the psychic service promised a free reading, but consumers calling a toll-free number were directed to a 900-number that charged $4.99 per minute, ending in nearly 6 million people charged an average of $60 each.
Without admitting guilt, Access Resource Services and Psychic Readers Network agreed to cancel $500 million in customer bills to settle the FTC charges. In 2001, a man settled his lawsuit for an undisclosed amount the day of his trial against a 90-year-old Atlantic City boardwalk fortune teller. He claimed he paid her $200,000 over 13 years to remove a curse. He alleged he’d suffered a nervous breakdown and held Sole Mio Balaam Nicola responsible because he left his wife after the fortune-teller told him that if he did not, he’d be “attacked by snakes.”
In 1996, a Roanoke, Va., Circuit judge ordered Lola Rose Miller, who offered fortunes under the name Miss Stella, to return more than $65,000 that a Roanoke man paid her for six numbers that were supposed to win $3 million in the lottery. She’d already served a year in jail after an undercover sting by a police officer, who was told a glass of water, a dirty sock and $1,200 paid to her would cure his marital problems — and an evil curse shaped like a potato inside his body. She also was ordered to pay $18,000 in restitution to a victim who prompted the police sting.
