Complaint / review text:
Sonia Merino is a supposed psychic in Malibu, CA. Recently, I went to the psychic for fun, and subsequently got conned into over $15,000 of fraudulent charges.
Sonia Merino, "Readings by Sonia, " claimed that the charges were necessary to warn off evil spirits, bad energies, an for "material" including candles and other "psychic" materials that would help her rid these bad energies from my life.
Regardless, this ripoff started with a cheap comprehensive reading for my birthday as a "fun" trial. Subsequently, I received urgent warnings from this psychic that if I did not allow her to perform certain rituals, my life would be plagued until I die.
I reported the fraudulent transactions to my credit card company, and am now in the dispute process.
Buyer be ware, Sonia Merino has used unethical practices.
