By Paul Thompson Daily Mail PUBLISHED:22 July 2013
A fortune teller who claimed she was carrying out ‘God’s work’ has been arrested for allegedly conning more than $800,000 from a woman who feared she was possessed.
The 33 year old also told her victim that other people wanted to kill her.
According to an arrest warrant the victim handed over the money so Miller could buy gold and silver materials such as mirrors and tabernacles to ward off the evil spirits.
A private investigator hired by the woman found that she had paid $838,000 over nine years.
Miller who also uses the name Shanna Young, was arrested on an out-of-state felony warrant.
She was held on Saturday at her home in Pompano Beach, Florida, after being charged with grand theft and extortion of property.
Bob Nygaard, a Boca Raton-based private investigator, said Miller advertised herself as a psychic and spiritual healer.
He said: ”Peaches T. Miller’ claimed to be doing ‘God’s Work’ and she conned the victim into believing that she was the only one who could protect the victim and her family from harm.’
He said that Miller assured the victim many times that all of her money would be returned but that ‘Miller never kept her promise’.
According to Nygaard, Miller is known to operate her alleged fortune telling business in Florida, California and New York.
Miller has been charged with grand theft and extortion and is being held at the Paul Rein Detention Facility in Broward County.
