(Toronto) -- A Canadian woman is being charged with witchcraft after allegedly running a scam pretending to ward off evil spirits.
Police in Toronto say 27-year-old Samantha Stevenson conned a 67-year-old man out of 450-thousand dollars in what they call an "evil spirit blessing scam."
Stevenson allegedly called herself a psychic who could rid the victim of evil spirits if he transferred large sums of money into her account.
Police say she also got the victim's house and car.
Stevenson is facing charges of fraud and pretending to practice witchcraft.
