Phony Psychics Jailed

Sponsored by:

Two self-described psychics are under arrest today for allegedly bilking hundreds of thousands of dollars from their clients.

Federal authorities say Sonia Merino of Manhattan Beach and her daughter-in law, Nasta Merino sold phony holy water and promised their clients to rescue them from curses.

They each face five counts of mail fraud. In a government affidavit, one of Sonia Merino´s clients says he went to her for a tarot card reading in 19-96 and wound up giving her more than 500-thousand dollars and a car over three years.
