Rockville psychic charged with theft, convinced victim she was cursed
Shanice Bell,or also known as “Psychic Gina and also Erica Ufie,was taken to custody Oct. 2 in Queens, Rockville police announced Thursday.
Authorities arrested a 35-year-old psychic who police said bilked a woman out of more than $77,000 after the fortuneteller told her she was cursed.
The psychic, Shanice Bell, was taken into custody Oct. 2 in Queens, Rockville police announced Thursday.
Police said Bell, also known as “Psychic Gina” and “Erica Ufie,” ran a fortunetelling business out of a Rockville home in the 200 block of Twinbrook Parkway. Over a period of six months, authorities said, Bell convinced a 53-year-old woman that she had been cursed at birth but that the bad fortune could be lifted by cash and gift cards.
Bell told the victim that without the “curse removal work” harm would come to her and to her family, police said in a press release. From October 2014 to March, police said, the woman gave Bell more than $77,000 in cash and property. When she later demanded that Bell return the money and goods, Bell left Maryland, authorities said.
The woman hired a private investigator to help her locate the psychic. The investigator tracked Bell to a fortunetelling parlor in Queens, police said, and police were contacted about the purported scheme.
New York police officers arrested Bell while she was shopping. Authorities said she was charged with a theft scheme of $10,000 to less than $100,000 and theft of $10,000 to less than $100,000.
Bell, who police said has an unknown address, is being held at Rikers Island in New York and awaiting extradition to Rockville.
Authorities ask anyone who may have been victimized or may have information about Bell or the investigation to contact the Rockville police’s criminal investigations unit at 240-314-8938.
