Sarnia has its own share of whack jobs and woo-woo artists. My recent post was about Darin James but one that citizens of Sarnia are likely more familiar with is the "Psychic" on East Street - Mary Young/Mary Demitro.
When searching for her, I came across a site "Gypsy Psychic Scams" that has an interesting personal account of Mary. You can read it yourself, here.
Unfortunately, the story is told by someone who is ashamed of what happened and obviously doesn't want to put her family through a public trial. Mary gets to continue scamming people because of such shame that people feel.
It is very likely that this is not the only time that Mary took advantage of a situation (not to mention that "psychics" don't have the abilities they claim to have and the simple act of taking money from someone who honestly believes it to be something other than entertainment should be illegal on its own).
If "psychics" always started AND ended each "reading" with "This is purely for entertainment purposes and any 'hits' that I get are purely by chance or by you interpreting them yourself. I do not have any psychic abilities and what I practice is simply manipulation intended to make you believe I know something I don't. Again, this is purely for entertainment only", I wouldn't have a problem with what they do. They, however, claim to have skills and abilities that a million dollars says they don't have.
