Restrepo Googled psychics on September 17 and found Adams’ website, which says she is a “Doctor in Life.”
“This made the plaintiff more confident that he was talking to a professional who could help him,” the lawsuit says, according to NBC Los Angeles.
Restrepo contacted Adams and the two exchanged text messages before she told him to come to a session at her business. When he arrived, she read his tarot cards and told him that he was “unlucky.”.
This bad luck was, according to Adams, imposed on Restrepo by a witch hired by his ex-girlfriend.
Adams told Restrepo that unless Adams removed the curse, Restrepo and his family would be unhappy and in danger.
Adams said bad luck would ruin Restrepo, his children and his marriage and demanded $ 5,100 to remove the curse. Restrepo gave Adams a down payment of $ 1,000.
Despite Adams’ promises, she did not help Restrepo’s marriage in any way, the lawsuit says.
Restrepo has suffered nights of insomnia, anxiety and anguish.
The lawsuit further alleges that while they knew that Adams had allegedly used the home and her business to cause harm to others in the community, her husband, daughter, and owners have done nothing to try to stop her conduct.
