The St. Petersburg witch who deceived 44 people was fined half a million rubles
A resident of St. Petersburg, Raisa Kuznetsova, who was known as a witch, received a fine of 500 thousand rubles for deceiving more than 40 people. She provided services in the occult, without possessing the skills, was reported in the Telegram channel of the joint press service of the regional courts.
“Kuznetsova was committed a number of crimes, where all the victims (44 people) suffered damage totaling at least 1,998,907 rubles,” the press service said, adding that the defendant admitted guilt and reimbursed the funds.
The accused posted an advertisement for the provision of magical services on social networks in 2021. One of the victims who fell for an unprofessional “witch” was a man from Volgograd, who, wanting to save a relative from drug addiction, transferred 13 thousand rubles to the woman. Kuznetsova did not solve the problem, but embezzled the money, as in a number of other similar crimes.
Earlier, Russians were warned about new fraud schemes. One of the common methods today is the assurance that a person is allegedly suspected of treason.
