How come this psychic didn't see her arrest coming?
A Hingham, Massachusetts woman, Crystal Smith, operating as Madame Sophie, tried to extort $16,000 out of an elderly woman by telling her that she had a black-cloud curse over her head and that one of her family members would die by suicide unless the woman paid Madame Sophie $16,000 to lift the curse. The poor elderly lady did give Ms. Smith a check for $7,000 and a antique ring valued at $500, but family members went to police when she contacted them trying to raise an additional $9,000 for Madame Sophie. Perhaps Crystal (Sophie) Smith was the real curse, and her arrest has lifted that curse from the superstitious woman’s head.
If Madame Sophie is truly a psychic, why didn’t she see the arrest coming? How do those who believe in psychics shrug off such evidence? Do they use the No true Scotsman argument? If you believe in psychics, does this story shake your faith or just reinforce the belief that your psychic is better than Madame Sophie at foreseeing the future?
