Red Flag  # 1  “Lost Cause Specialist - Proven Results - Certified Miracle Worker

“You’re in serious trouble First_Name,

“Tuesday night I heard you scream for help. I felt your loneliness, heartache, and despair. Most of all, I felt your worry and frustration. Then the Archangel Michael grabbed me and said out loud, “First_Name Last_Name needs a miracle!”

Red Flag  # 1,  again “So here I am, Sister Sedona, the one true miracle worker that does what others claim. I pray for you and my prayers are answered. ALWAYS ANSWERED! I see visions of your future and my visions come true. ALWAYS COME TRUE!

Red Flag  # 2  “I won’t fail you. I am not like those others. I’ve never failed anyone and I’m not about to start now. Prepare yourself, First_Name Last_Name! Prepare yourself for miracles because they’re coming and coming fast. Instant miracles. Life changing miracles. Your wish is my command, miracles. Give me your hand right now, First_Name, and let’s do this once and for all.

“It’s no wonder others have failed you so miserably. Your case is serious business. One of the more difficult I’ve seen in the last 3 years. I’m surprised it took this long for you to get to me. I am the savior of lost causes. The more difficult, overwhelming and seemingly unsolvable a case, the more I enjoy it. That’s because I never fail. I win. Big problems, small problems it just don’t matter. 36 hours is all I need.

“I’m ready to start your prayers immediately. You’ll be staggered by the instant results. My prayer mastery is unequaled. That’s why from the moment I begin working for you, your life will be instantly and forever blessed. That’s why people turn to me in crisis. I don’t just solve problems, I fix emergency problems in 36 hours or less.

“My God given psychic powers are so superior to anything you’ve experienced it may be unnerving at first. Everything I reveal becomes fact. Your every prayer answered, your every wish granted. It’s so overwhelming that it takes some getting used to for most. Angels assist in the preparation of the psychic reading I’m sending you. This is the first spiritual reading you’ve ever received that’s prepared by those in control of your future.

Red Flag  # 3  “I’m the only one who can read your past, present, and future with absolute perfect accuracy. The comprehensiveness of my readings can only be described as encyclopedic. Dates, names and actual detailed facts of business, love, health, courtship, marriage, divorce, family affairs, work, wealth and fortune revealed with flawless precision.

“I shall counsel you in a full, open, and honest manner. If I see danger I shall warn you. If a vision requires interpretation I shall do so wisely. Everything I reveal I also explain in the utmost detail. You have my absolute assurance that you will have results in 36 hours or less. Perfect results. I even provide a contractual guarantee.

“Given the tremendous demand for my miraculous intervention, I accept new clients on only the rarest of occasions and then only by the strongest of referrals. First_Name, it is rare for even I to receive a vision of Archangel Michael requesting intervention on one’s behalf. As such, you come to me with the highest possible reference.

“Everything I say is 100% proven. I am the genuine article, a time tested psychic miracle worker. There is no doubt that I am going to immediately help you with all your problems. Your search for assistance ends today. My powers are well founded. I possess secret powers and techniques known by no other. I do not simply profess to be the world’s most powerful psychic, I am the uncontravertable[sic] master of supernatural miracles.

“Give me your permission and I will start solving your every problem IMMEDIATELY! No matter how large or hopeless your problems appear at this moment, I shall solve them instantly. I go to work the day I hear back from you. I am fearless, aggressive and acting on God’s authority. With Angels by my side I simply charge in and eliminate the problem.

Red Flag  # 4  “I will always be frank, candid and truthful with you. From me you will get straight talk, even if it’s something you don’t want to hear. I charge one small fee with no hidden costs. I then set upon my work of instantly solving your problems.

“I’ve done my home work so I know what we’re up against First_Name. Many negative energies are impacting you. Minor jinxes, curses, negative thought forms and even a spell are weighing on you. None are tremendously powerful alone but together they are bother some[sic] and the cause of your current struggles. Of greater concern is a dark spot I see in your aura. This appears to be a malicious entity that is growing in power. If not dealt with, this will begin to cause you pain and heartache in approximately six weeks.

“The first thing I am going to do is perform the ‘Ritual of Sacred Flame’ to burn away these negative energies. They must be removed before you can experience the miracles I am filling your life with as these dark forces are burned away, the problems now weighing heavy on you will mysteriously disappear. I will then perform a Prayer of Protection Mass. This prayer mass will seal you in an impenetrable white light, protecting you from any future infestations.

“Vanishing evil will instantly open a flood gate of good fortune. First_Name, the second this evil is vanished, I will drop to my knees and send up the most powerful of all prayers in your name. I will offer the Eternal Prayer of Instant Miracles! I will write down this secret prayer and send it to you for your own use.

“The results will be instant. Immediately you will win at everything. Your amazing good luck will be dumfounding. This drastic change in your life will explode in such a fashion that it will be difficult for you to believe. Therefore, I want you to take this test and prove it to yourself.

“Mailed from Your_Town Your_State, I should have your letter back in 3 to 4 days. Keep that in mind because within 36 hours of my opening your letter, you will notice drastic change in your life. Soon after, when you receive your Eternal Prayer of Instant Miracles, recite it and petition for some incredible event of good fortune that seems impossible. You can make it as grand or unrealistic as you like. When that prayer is instantly answered, you will have proof positive. Only then will you be able to accept all the miracles blossoming in your life. Only then will you know that your life has truly changed.

“I am a world famous miracle worker of all affairs of the heart. My secrets create instant love miracles. I reunite lovers, stop divorces and return loves forever. 36 hours and anyone you desire will be faithfully devoted to you for life. No matter how severe your broken heart, I will instantly solve your every need.

“I know that your heart is heavy concerning finances. Take comfort in the fact that I have seen tremendous wealth coming your way. First_Name, during prayer I uncovered one wealth miracle after another for you. I have seen you awestruck by your newfound prosperity. Then I have seen you celebrating. Finally I have seen you happy and content with the absolute peace of mind that unlimited resources provides you.

“The wealth I speak of comes from such surprising places that you are shocked. I am absolutely certain about what I have witnessed for you. This prosperity immediately changes your life. The wealth miracles begin within 72 hours of our working together. They grow in size on a daily basis until your riches are of biblical proportion.

“Take a deep breath and let your financial worries go, First_Name. When I make a promise like this, it’s always fulfilled. The vision I have just described will be your life. That life is filled with wealth, opulence, riches and abundance. Once again, I back this up with a contractual guarantee.

“Now there is only one thing you must do in order to live this perfect life. You must answer this letter, today. Replying to this letter is the most important thing you will be asked to do. Upon receiving your reply, I will begin my work destroying evil and filling your life with answered prayers, fulfilled wishes, love and wealth.

The tremendous good luck, wealth and love happen in an instant thereafter. There is no problem that I can not solve. I create miracles in 36 hours or less. My promises are not empty. I shall prevail for you.

Red Flag  # 5  “No more words, First_Name, it’s action time! Return the ‘Instant Action Request’ form at the bottom of this letter with my one time $25 dollar fee. I have enclosed an envelope to expedite these matters. I begin immediately.

Red Flag  # 6  “Within 24 hours of receipt, I shall perform the ‘Ritual of the Sacred Flame’ burning evil from your life once and for all.

Red Flag  # 7  “Signed:

“Sister Sedona”

Please remember, the quotations above are from the SCAM letter of “Sister Sedona” _not_ by

Red Flag  # 1  “Proven” and “Certified”? That should be easy to prove for “Sister Sedona”, just tell us where the documentation is and we’ll be glad to look at it. On the other hand, if this is just the normal claims like all other ‘psychics’ then let’s just know that, up front. So far, I’ve never seen any ‘psychic’ provide any kind of documentation of any kind.

“ALWAYS ANSWERED” and “visions ALWAYS COME TRUE”? More outlandish, unproven, self-aggrandizing, and false claims. Actually, I agree that all prayers are ‘answered’. But that is because the answer isn’t always what we want! I think it is obvious that this so-called “Sister” wants us to believe her prays are always answered as she wants! Again, where is he proof? (return to # 1 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 2  I believe this is the most audacious of all the letters I’ve reviewed! There seems no limits on what this SCAMmer claims to be able to do. She is called by the very Angels of heaven! She claims to have never failed while claiming that all others have! All her prayers are answered within 36 hours! (return to # 2 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 3  The claims of perfection of “Sister Sedona” seem to never end! There is a reminder/claim in every sentence! Of course, the purpose is to convince you that this is the one SCAMmer that can actually help you. I expect she would claim she could even help those without any problems! But I don’t want to waste your time reading this same red flag over and over, again. Let’s move on to some of the other ones… (return to # 3 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 4  At last we get the one thing all SCAMs include: The need for you to spend your money! It’s usually a small amount, seldom over $ 40, “Sister Sedona” asks for only $ 25 in a check or money order. The amount is stated in the “Instant Action Request Form” you’ll find later. That Form also contains “a contractual guarantee”. Please, save your money! Never has anyone ever said that any SCAM listed on this site was worth the fee charged, no matter what the amount! I have, however, been asked to help get a refund from several people who made the mistake of thinking the usually mentioned “guarantee” was valid. It never, ever is. Please also remember, I have no contact or relationship with any of these SCAMmers. I am only listing SCAMs in the hope that you will recognize any that come to you to. (return to # 4 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 5  This is an almost universal part of SCAMs. You are urged, almost always, to act immediately. I call this the “Act Now Without Thinking” scheme. Most SCAMmers know that if you hesitate, especially if you discuss the SCAM with anyone, there is a good chance you will not send them their fee. That is absolutely the only reason you received the SCAM letter: To get your money! Don’t be tricked into doing that! Please, talk over the letter with someone you can trust to do and say what is best for you. I have complete confidence that they will point out the risks of sending money to a complete stranger.

Don’t be too impressed that “Sister Sedona” has included an addressed envelope for you to use. That may have cost her 10 cents. You will still have to spend nearly half a dollar for postage! I would think someone who is so concerned about you would have been happy to have included a stamped envelope. (return to # 5 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 6  There does seem to be only one way for “Sister Sedona” to fail... and she makes that very clear! She can only fail if we don’t send her the $25! It’s sad to think that someone with all her claims of powers and success will only perform her miracles when paid. It is not an exorbitant amount, but it says a lot about her real desire to help anyone, in my humble opinion. Fortunately, there are lots of people in this world willing to help in many less materialistic ways. They are called “volunteers”. When you need help, don’t look for it from some stranger making false claims and promises. Ask your friends, and family, your Pastor, look in the phone book. You should be able to find real professionals, in your local area, that are truly concerned about you! They can often supply help for free! Don’t let this complete stranger SCAM you out of your money! (return to # 6 Red Flag above)

Red Flag  # 7  “Signed”? Take a close look at that ‘signature’. It was not written with a pen, it was simply printed with all the other text and images in the letter. The letter is not even typed on a typewriter; it is simply created using a “Typewriter” font, of which there are many. Like all the other SCAM letters shown on my site, this letter is simply printed, by the thousands. Obviously, ‘signing’ that many letters would be time consuming and inefficient. That’s why the image of a “signature” is used. Since we’ve never seen an actual signature from “Sister Sedona”, we have absolutely no idea what it looks like, anyway. I will hazard an opinion, however, that very few signatures are as readable as this one. Just another bit of trickery, as so often occurs in any SCAM. (return to # 7 Red Flag above)
