Lufkin Resident Duped Out Of $15,000 For ‘Spiritual Money Cleaning’
Okay...there are some obvious questions that come to mind when you see a headline like this, but before we get to those, let's first take a look at the official incident synopsis from the Lufkin Police Department.
COMPLAINANT REPORTED THAT SHE LOST $15,000 AFTER GIVING IT TO SUSPECTS FOR SPIRITUAL CLEANING. COMPLAINANT SAID THAT SHE RESPONDED TO A SPIRITUAL MONEY CLEANING AD SHE HEARD ON A SPANISH-SPEAKING RADIO STATION, TAKING $15,000 TO THE FRED STREET RESIDENCE OF THE UNIDENTIFIED SUSPECTS TO HAVE IT CLEANED BUT THE SUSPECTS MOVED OUT OF THE RESIDENCE WITHOUT RETURNING HER MONEY AND WILL NOT RESPOND TO HER PHONE CALLS. A NEIGHBOR TO THE SUSPECTS’ RESIDENCE SAID THAT NUMEROUS SPIRITUAL MONEY CLEANING CUSTOMERS CAME TO THE RESIDENCE AFTER THE SUSPECTS MOVED AWAY.
First...what in the world is spiritual money cleaning?
Second...how can someone be so convincing as to talk someone (or several people as this report alludes) into leaving their money for cleansing? You just have to know this is a scam.
Third...how does a radio station allow a client like this to air this type of ad?
I just don't get any of this.
