An illuminated manuscript style drawing of an angel in a yellow archwayAn angel appeared to Dutch clairvoyant Esperanza and told her to take a pilgrimage to the holy place of Saint-Jacques de Compestelle.

Along the way the angel appeared again and said:

“Esperanza, the Heavens have given you a mission and to accomplish this mission you are going to receive a gift. The gift of being able to realise the desires of people who suffer needlessly from a lack of luck. Bend down Esperanza and pick up a handful of those small white stones. These stones have been blessed in Heaven. Each stone represents the wish that someone has made and that you will be able to make come true.

“Every time that you recite these words (sacred words that accomplish miracles), you must take up one of the stones that you have picked up along the path of the Stations of the Cross and you should bury it near a fig tree which is placed in your garden. Three days later, you must dig up this stone and send it to the person for whom you have recited these magic words. This will be the sign between the heavens and this person that their wish will be granted. ”

And guess what, you are that so-called lucky person. Just send $35 for your “sacred stone” and your magic wish will come true.

Esperanza certainly knows how to spin a good tale. It’s a shame her psychic abilities don’t live up to her vivid imagination.

She addressed one WA ScamNet contributor as Miss even though his first name is John. And she wanted to know his birthday, place of birth, favourite number and colour.

But then again we doubt that Esperanza actually exists. According to the letter’s fine print, the photograph of the smiling grey-haired woman on the letter is “non-contractual”, which means it may or may not be Esperanza.

The fine print also states that the letter is a commercial proposition and “we” cannot be held to any “obligation of results”. So much for her reassurances!

WA ScamNet has its own guardian Angel that, free of charge and without obligation, advises you: “Don’t pay $35 for a stone and a false promise”.

It’s a shame that we can’t bury this and other psychic scams under our own fig tree.
