I initially went to Mrs. Jessica for entertainment purposes with one of my friends on the 21st of May– the day of the supposed “rapture” for laughs and kicks. I was excited to go because I have never been to a psychic prior to that visit. I went before my friend. She was took me into a room and sat me across from her at a circular table. I asked her to read both of my palms. She told me to wish for something in the beginning of the palm reading. I wished for a good future(in my head). She told me what I wished for would come true– this is key to note. Then she followed with the reading. She general things about me and based on my reaction (my body language/facial expressions) she fed off of what more to say. For the things I felt that she got right– like about the women in my family not having a good history with men– I thought “how could she know this, this must be personal to me!” After a couple dry and general characteristics “about me” she then informed me that I have a curse. This took me aback because being a African and raised by African parents– my mother is a bit superstitious and when I was younger she always told me that her step mother cursed her, but I never believed my mother. But when this was reinforce by this alleged “psychic” I thought it must be real then! Mrs. Jessica asked me if this was told to me by past psychics, I said no and informed her about my mother. She played off of it and said “oh yes of course this is true!” She told me that she could rid me of this curse, but I must not tell anyone or it won’t work! She said that it would cost $200. I said that I don’t have the means to pay that being that I’m only a student with no job. She said that she would help me. Being naive I believed her and paid her half in cash– she had me withdraw money at the ATM next door. She in return gave me bath salt and a stone and told me that it would protect me. She instructed me that I must take a bath for three nights using the salt and stone for 20 minutes. She emphasized that I must come back for more information on the following Monday. She gave me her number to call for questions. I did not return on the Monday, but the Friday. When I returned she informed me that I in fact had two curses. The lastest one but on me by my ex’s mother. I found this absolutely strange and unreal because she one said that it happened 5 years ago… I was 15 five years ago and NOT in a relationship. I questioned her about it and she asked me when I was last in a relationship and I said about 1 and a half ago. She asked me about my relationship and why we ended things and I said because we weren’t good together. I told her that my ex girlfriend’s mother didn’t want us together and as soon as I mentioned that she played on it and said that my ex’s mother is the one who hired someone to put a curse on me. I was very skeptical about this seeing as my ex girlfriend’s mother is very religious and I doubt that she would do that. Although my gut was telling me that this was a load of bull– something in my mind kept telling me that what if she’s right. I kept trying to make sense of what she was telling me in my head. so again she asked me for more money. This time she asked that I pay $150 and I did. She again gave me bath salt and a stone again and follow the same ritual I had done before. And of course I was always to return for more instruction. So when I returned I was feeling very doubtful. I expressed this to her and she said that this is because all this negative energy is evading my body due to this process. She emphasized that I must stay faithful. She asked me to give $125, but I gave her $110. She gave me bath salt…again and a stone. She asked me if I had a credit card, I said no only a debit card. She asked me again and I said no. She was really persistent about this. I guess she felt that I was lying. She then asked me to get 3 white towels for a cleansing process for the next time I come by. I was frustrated this time because I felt like a human ATM. I just kept giving and giving with no tangible results. This time I left she said “God bless you” about 5 times… as if she was trying to elude to me that she is a religious and person of God when she is in fact just the opposite. I bought one white towel and got two more from home. I return on Friday June 10th. When I returned she said that she had urgent news! That this curse traces back for generations and generations. That she would have to do major extensive work and that of course I would have to give more. She said to me that “the spirits” have informed her that I am holding back. That I actually have a savings and a credit card. I told her I do have a savings account. I did not give her the information for it– thankfully. I told her again that I do not have a credit card. She asked me if I had gold jewelry because according to “the spirits” I do. I told her I do. Of course I do… and I’m sure a lot of other women do–so again she was making a general assumption and trying to make it sound specific to me. This time I did not fall for it. I said to her that I would get back to her with funds. She said I should call her with notice. As soon as I went home yesterday (June 10th) I went online and searched “How do you know if you’ve been scammed by a psychic”. I found dozens and dozens of links and read stories of peoples stories. My story was no different from theirs. I was completely shocked and dumb founded! How could I be so naive! Thankfully it wasn’t thousands that I lost to this women. Regardless I want EVERYONE to know her name and that Mrs. Jessica at 3851 M St in Northwest Washington DC is a fraud! She is a crook! and is out for your money. Even if I can’t get my money back I can do people in the area a favor by putting her name out there to the public! She is in fact a gypsy far from a psychic and scammed me!
