WANTAGH, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – A Long Island psychic likely didn’t see her arrest coming.
Nassau County Police arrested Lisa King, 43, on charges of grand larceny after she allegedly conned a woman out of $4,900.
King allegedly told the woman she was cursed and needed the money to lift the curse, police said.
According to police, King told the victim that she would bury the money and was not to tell anyone about what happened or the curse would return.
The money has not been recovered.
The Wantagh woman also faces a charge of fortune-telling.
King was due to be arraigned later Sunday at First District Court in Hempstead.
