Now, we don't know Niskey or the state of her mental health, but we're going to assume she wasn't in the advanced stages of Alzheimer's when her "spiritual advisor" asked her to bring all her money -- ALL OF IT -- for a multi-session cleansing ritual that would end the curse she didn't know she had. And $86,000 later Niskey realized, "Hey, I need to pay some bills and get my medicine," so she politely asked for the cleansing rituals to end so she could get her money back. You know where this is going, don't you?
Psychic Compels 'Cursed' Woman to Buy Gold Bars to Act as Her Shield
Psychic Lisa Debbie Adams of West Hollywood was accused of convincing a woman that she had been cursed, and the only way she could ward off the evil is if she bought $30,000 worth of gold bars to create a spiritual "shield." She also managed to sway her victim into believing that she would have to open all of her credit cards to buy luxury items that would ward off evil, because Satan and his spawn have no time for such glittery things.

"Why do you think they're called S-Class?"
But that's not all -- Adams had first met her victim on the streets of West Hollywood, with the psychic wearing a sign advertising that she was a psychic (which should've been clear indication that she's not a goddamn psychic). The psychic's first scam involved convincing her victim that her womb was cursed and she would have to pay $96,000 to have it cleansed, reaffirming our confusion as to how people who believe such things have so much disposable cash.
