Gina Marks and her husband Steven had been renting a business called Psychic Gina. Authorities said that instead of revealing fortunes, they were stealing them.
When Fort Collins Police searched the Marks’ home last month, they allegedly found stolen credit cards and merchandise, fake IDs, and even a fraudulent sheriff’s badge.
Now the two are facing charges for bilking a woman out of tens of thousands of dollars.
A private investigator hired by the victim said the duo conned her into believing that a curse had been placed on her family. He said they persuaded her to participate in elaborate rituals at their previous home, and to give them cash and gift cards worth $36,000.
The investigator said they left the victim emotionally abused and financially devastated.
Now the family’s latest alleged victim is left to rebuild her life after she lost everything.
The Marks are charged with class four felony theft. Gina Marks is also facing additional charges including identity theft.
