Police Search for Accomplice in Psychic Scam
Hingham police are searching for the accomplice of a woman working as a psychic who’s been accused of trying to bilk a customer out of thousands of dollars by promising to lift a curse from the client’s daughter.
State prosecutors say Tiffany Crystal Smith, 23, ran a fortune-telling business that has conned more than one person, and now they’re looking for her alleged accomplice.
Police claim the young psychic swindled a 69-year-old Pembroke woman by telling the woman her daughter was under a curse.
“She told her this several times, and said that if she didn’t give (Smith) $16,000, her daughter would kill herself,” said Assistant District Attorney Alexander Zane during Smith’s arraignment.
The elderly victim went to Smith’s Psychic and Card reading business on Whiting Street in Hingham with a $7,000 check and a $500 dollar ring. Smith allegedly told her it wasn’t enough.
“She also took out a bag and threw a red substance on the floor saying that would be her daughter’s blood,” said Zane.
