Urgent Message From A Past Life!
YOUR OWN Past Life!

The YOU that lived in the 19th century is reaching out with...



“This may be the most incredible letter you have ever received. How so? Because the source of this message is more a part of you than you may ever have dreamed could be possible.

Red Flag  # 1  “You are an old soul with an amazing life force! One of the most incredible I have come in contact with. Destiny intended you for greatness. It is unfortunate that an unforeseen influence has held you back. But a message from centuries past will now change all that.

YOU HAVE LIVED BEFORE! And what a life it was. You were a hero. You lived an amazing life. It’s time the world sees you for what you really are and rewards you with the riches that have always been intended for you. Many people feel that they were intended for greatness. You really were!

“Amazing as this statement is. It is true. I have in my possession, very detailed information of your previous existence. It’s STARTLING, HEARTWARMING AND INSPIRATIONAL.

Red Flag  # 2 So much so, it is of the highest priority that you be made aware of everything (My notes consumed many pages).

“To begin with, it is a story of endless love, heroism, accomplishments and a marvelous legacy. But it also comes with a warning of specific dangers which must be dealt with (more about this later). Now that I’m aware of your situation, no harm will be allowed to come to you.

Red Flag  # 3 In fact, I have already initiated psychic barriers to assure your immediate physical protection. This is one of the reasons my services are most often requested.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled that the person who was formerly YOU successfully reached across time to me. These transmitted revelations will guide you to an unclaimed fortune untouched for many years. It is almost impossible to overestimate the importance of this information. Before I go any further, let me tell you a little about myself.

I am what is called a PSYCHIC REGRESSIONIST. I do not need the subject of a past life search in front of me - nor do I depend on hypnosis. I simply focus on names of specific individuals and utilize my intense psychic ability to go backwards in time to their previous lives. Sometimes it becomes several previous lives. Often, this process requires mere minutes of concentration. But on rare occasions, it can take hours.

“When I am successful, what comes through has a startling impact on who my clients thought they WERE...who they are NOW...and who they will be IN YEARS TO COME. Often, it is all of the above and MUCH, MUCH MORE.

“Right now, please grab a pencil. Jot down the initials, C.R. and the date of October 15, 2011.

“NOTE: I am providing you with these details even though near-term potential danger has already been neutralized. You will understand why at a later date.

Red Flag  # 4 I am prepared to navigate you through specific identifiable crisis periods. Unfortunately, there are several. However, with both my specific guidance AND my psychic protection, no harm will reach you. But you must follow my instructions to the utmost degree.

“I can’t overemphasize the need for you to rely on what will be told to you and to not disregard any directive. Why?


“In addition to your well-being, there is a matter of considerable wealth. The former YOU has provided important information about a significant windfall that is now within your reach.

Please remember, the quotations above and below are from the SCAM letter of “Rachael Hughes” _not_ by

A note of caution! Because this letter might be read by others, I will only confide that this untapped store of tremendous wealth has been accumulating since the end of the 19th century, the full 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century. It is the result of a super-wise decision made by your previous incarnation. The person that once was YOU, wants to make sure it winds-up in the right hands - THAT WOULD BE YOURS!

Nevertheless, to pursue this nest-egg will require the specific details I now have. This information will help you to initiate the right actions at the right times. If these directions are executed correctly, your future will be secure, and for the rest of your life.[sic]

“You may wonder how and why I was able to identify you as the person intended to receive this past life communication. In fact, my introduction to the prior YOU came in a most unexpected manner.

Often the identity of the person for whom I am to provide a regression reading is not given to me in advance. In public appearances and lectures I am sometimes asked to determine this information “psychically” on my own. Fortunately, I have the ability to do this spontaneously.

“All I require is a telephone directory page containing the name of my non-specified client and someone in the audience to concentrate on his or her identity. In most instances, the name will jump from these listings directly into my head. It was during this process that I was inexplicably drawn not to the name of the original person sought, but to yours! It was as if a bright red light begun flashing in my mind.

“Suddenly, warnings, dates, places, specific people, faces...and all manner of unexpected details began rushing into my sub-conscious. I quickly grabbed a pen and began writing.

“I knew instantly, this was a psychic connection unlike any I had ever experienced. I could perceive anguish, sadness, and the outpouring of concern.

“I also sensed that the person who once was YOU possessed a keen awareness of you and your current troubles and self-doubt. Even though my mind was deep into the 19th century, your life was dancing in front of my eyes with clarity and finite detail.

“I could visualize your problems...feel your aches and pains...sense your money worries...and commiserate with your lack of appreciation. What also came through were projections of your possible future.

Please notice, I said POSSIBLE. That’s because your future remains a variable. In fact, what you do in the next few weeks could have a significant impact on whether you wind up wealthy, happy and in excellent health...OR you continue to be bogged-down with the same trials and tribulations you have been dealing with for years.

“Looming directly in your path are complex choices. Some are glorious, enticing and marvelous. Others are deceptive, misleading, and even mean-spirited in their potential outcomes.

“The truth is if you travel the improper road, make poor decisions, or select the wrong doors, you could wind-up unhappy and minus all the fruits of a wonderful new life that is now within your grasp. The YOU of long ago does not want this to happen. YOU MUST MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICES!

“I am willing to do everything within my power to help you. I have already organized the notes communicated to me into an incredible REGRESSION SUMMARY REPORT.

Red Flag  # 5  “You must obtain this document as soon as possible (Time is not an option here. I definitely cannot guarantee the future you have been willed if you do not avail yourself to everything that has been revealed to me).

“For instance, within the pages of your Regression Report, you’ll find...

  1. “The complete name and title of the former YOU!
  2. “Your 19th century place of residence.
  3. “Family status (spouse, children, etc.).
  4. “Specific dates of unbelievable importance. PLUS...
  5. “Specific directions to a potential fortune that has been growing, growing and growing. PLUS...
  6. “Vital warnings, dated opportunities and detailed guidance for the week s and months ahead.

“I will include something of mine. It is a special “Hands Across Time” Talisman. Clients for whom I have generated prior-life Reports tell me this beautiful piece intensifies the psychic bond between them and their former selves and that it facilitates mysterious warnings and beneficial hunches. Recipients consider this talisman as their most valued possession. Please accept it as a FREE GIFT from me to you.

Red Flag  # 6  “I wish I could also send you your Regression Summary Report, for free. But unfortunately, the cost of time, paper, printing and mailing necessitates I ask a small fee of $25.00. I hope you will understand.

Personal comments

“Dear Friend:

“I have taken the liberty of enclosing a very special prayer. It was given to me by one of the worlds[sic] mystic masters of previous life regression with instructions to make just seven copies.

“He said I should pass each one on to whomsoever I thought would benefit most from its unique powers

“I think you are such a person. The YOU from a previous life exuded such love, concern and readiness to reach out to you, this prayer will be the means to maintain this precious connection.

“Cherish it always and turn to it whenever in need. You will feel the love immediately.”

'Hand-written' note about Summary Regression Report
'Hand-written' prayer from R. Hughes

Red Flag  # 1  Most SCAMmers claim they can provide you with great financial wealth and renewed health. “Rachael Hughes” starts out with not only “incredulous”, “amazing”, “startling”, “heartwarming”, “inspirational”, and completely impossible-to-prove claims! I’ll acknowledge her ingenuity! But that is also a big red flag. It’s basically the same “if it sounds too good to be true” scheme, just different words: “if it sounds too bizar to be true, it’s probably is a SCAM!(return to # 1 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 2  “Ms. Hughes” thinks her revelations are so important that she sends a letter to you using the cheapest method possible? Do you see the contradiction there? (return to # 2 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 3  All SCAMs try to praise and promote the powers and abilities of the SCAMmer. “Ms. Hughes” is no exception. In fact, she talks about herself with such boastfulness that we could easily forget that she is a complete stranger! There is absolutely no reason to believe anything she says! Especially if she is the only one saying it! She never provides any proof of her skills or powers. She never provides any references to support her claims. There is no reason to trust her any more than any other con artist! Words are cheap; where’s the proof?

“Ms. Hughes” claims about herself are simply her attempt to make us believe we need her self-described abilities. She claims her revelations have “a startling impact on” her ‘clients’, “when she is successful”. This is as close as she comes to admitting she is not perfect! To be completely truthful, she should say that, even when she is unsuccessful, her ‘clients’ always lose money! (return to # 3 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 4  In every single case I know of where a request for a refund has been made, not a single one has be honored. Sometimes they are simply ignored. At other times, there is legal text included in the SCAM letter in extremely small print stating that the letter is nothing more than “entertainment” and that “results may vary”.

This SCAMmer intends to prevent any refunds by simply telling you that you did not follow all the instructions as you were told. A phrase like “you must follow my instructions to the utmost degree” means the burden of proof that the results were not satisfactory, will be on you! You’ll need a witness to prove that you followed every single instruction correctly. Of course, “Ms. Hughes” repeats several times that you must not tell anyone about her plans or even this letter! Obviously, having a witness means you did not obey her! Don’t be another frustrated, disappointed person complaining about not getting a refund; just don’t send any money in the first place! (return to # 4 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 5  This, again, is one of the most used devices by SCAMmers. They always want you to reply immediately! This serves two purposes. 1. It gets their money as quickly as possible, 2. It keeps you from taking any time to research the SCAMmer and their claims or even talking to friends and family about the letter. “Ms. Hughes” further reinforces this fear of discussion by repeatedly telling you to keep everything secret. She knows her greatest enemy is the truth! (return to # 5 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 6  “Ms. Hughes” spends much of the letter trying to convince you of her great powers and successes. Then she takes great effort and many words to describe the amazing events and great wealth generated by your former self. With these subjective and irrational subjects taken care of “Ms. Hughes” gets down to the whole point of the letter; Send me the money! There are so many real needs in this world, why not find one locally that could effectively use that $ 25 instead of giving it to a SCAMmer who will use it only to further her own agenda; taking money for her own profit while providing nothing in return. (return to # 6 Red Flag above)
