LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) A North Hollywood woman has filed suit against her former psychic reader, claiming she was conned out of nearly $11,000 when the medium failed to deliver on promises to lift a curse on her love life.
Klarissa Castro filed the lawsuit against Jennifer Williams in Los Angeles Superior Court Wednesday, alleging fraud and both intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress, according to City News Service.
The suit also names Williams company, Psychic Readings By Yana, on S. Bundy Dr. near Exposition Blvd. in West L.A.
Castro claims she first met Williams at the place of business in August 2010.
The defendant allegedly told Castro there was a curse placed upon her which was preventing her from having true, meaningful, loving relationships in her life.
According to the lawsuit, Williams said she could lift the curse.
The plaintiff proceeded to pay the money over a series of sessions to have it removed, she claims.
During those sessions, Castro was allegedly instructed to buy gift cards, special candles blessed by Williams and other items meant to symbolize the love between the woman and her boyfriend.
The suit claims in June 2011 Castro spent $5,020 to commission a painting Williams said would help to lift the curse and bring her closer to her significant other.
According to the filings, the painting was never delivered.
The plaintiff said she saw Williams for approximately two years and was emotionally vulnerable at the time.
Williams has yet to offer comment on the filing.
Look at it as a stupidity tax.
LOL what a dope.
She could’ve gone to her local TGI Friday’s, spent far less than $11K, and found love.
If stupidity was against the law the psychic could sue Klarissa.
Hell, a Craigslist ad would have been free..
Well... if she paid for a painting and one was never painted for her, she *does* have a case, at least on that one count.
She probably doesn’t on the other items. Suing a psychic for fraud? If people started suing psychics on that basis, wouldn’t that quickly put a lot of psychics out of business?
Tuition. She learned far more about how the real world operates than she would have by spending that $11K at virtually any college or university in the country.
How can you be guilty of failing to remove something that doesn’t even exist in the first place?
Williams is a fairly common gypsy name in the US.
all I say is LOL
Klarissa had money to burn AND stupid.... guys love that.... whats the prob?....
Klarissa, you can easily recoup your losses; you see, I own this really huge bridge in Brooklyn, and I’m willing to let it go very cheaply....
Eventually, guys sober up.

Not a chance that I would be selected as a juror for the trial.
