(Note:  This thread was a victim of yesterday’s lemming-like autoculling by the forum software.)

Investment ‘Psychic’ Accused of Financial Fraud.  One is, as always in such cases, left to wonder why a psychic did not see that one coming.  The standard alleged “logic” is that psychic gifts aren’t for self-enrichment and can only be used to help others.  But if that is true, then it must have been that the psychic muses withheld forewarning of his impending indictment from him as a beneficial service to others, so maybe there’s a psychic realm with muses who pay attention after all… Roll Eyes



On a different tack, the article opens with a sage piece of advice:
Note to investors: If someone claims to be a prophet and promises to win you money by predicting changes in the stock market, don't walk away. Run.
