MOSCOW, August 18. /TASS/. A Moscow court has sentenced a criminal gang of 21 so-called psychics accused of money embezzlement to prison terms from six to 15 years and to fines from 400,000 to 1.5 million roubles ($6,100 to $22,800), court officials told TASS on Tuesday.
The members of the gang have been operating in Moscow since 2010. The psychics gained the trust of their clients and then offered them to solve their personal troubles using some remote magic rituals. As a result, people transferred their money to the cheaters.
Another way of money embezzlement was the selling of fake medications to the clients, who were previously convinced to be sick, the court said.
All members of the group were found guilty of fraud and money embezzlement.
The sentence is expected to be appealed by their lawyers.
