So They Can Prove She's Still Cursed?
Too Bad Stupidity Isn't Illegal - She'd Be Rich

That's a Pretty Big Curse...

from Reuters

MOSCOW - Russian police are looking for two mystics who persuaded a student to part with more than $160,000 in exchange for lifting a curse, RIA news agency reported Sunday.

"Two unknown women, on the pretext of lifting a curse, stole $150,000 and some jewelry by means of deception. The total amount stolen is estimated at $161,800," the agency quoted a police source as saying.

The victim is a female student at Moscow's elite State Institute for International Affairs, RIA said. Many Russians are highly superstitious. They spend huge sums each year on faith healers and alternative medicine.

One has to wonder why some "student" can come up with 168K cash but would still attend a shithole school in a cesspool like this?

Of course, one can presuppose stupidity since she was conned by such a bullshit scam.

Why can't I ever find broads this rich and this gullible. I'd pay a serious commission for referrals.

One is unavoidably reminded of a deathless quote from the Mexican bandits in "The Magnificent Seven" to justify their regular plundering of the peons:

"If God didn't intend for them to be shorn, he wouldn't have made them sheep."

Yup.
