Destiny Research/ Maria DuvalNot providing service rendered

I took a survey on the internet and the next thing I know I am getting this letter for some rings. I purchased 6 rings and they were garbage went to place on finger and they broke. Been following her letters and getting little Talismans (something like that) paper and real thin metal or plastic that I am to cut into and send her part of it back with $45.00. This is in every letter something she is sending me for $45.00 and promise's a big win. First it was Sept 7th to the 19th (never happened). Now Oct 2 - 4th 2009 and Nov 7th for a I.G.R.7 (what ever that was or is after rubbing one of her cards on my body, one under my pillow where I lay my head, and carry one in my pocket or wallet at all times (still no winning or be lucky with love, sex anything that is promised). Glad I found this website now lost $450.00 to date. Not sending no more refund request letters are coming back unopened.

    I'm one of the stubid ones that wanted to believe in Maria Duval. I didn't know she was a scam until I looked her up on the internet. She owes me alot of money back. She says all her work is a money back guarantee. I don't think I will ever see my money again. Dianne, TN

    I received a letter today from the same person. It all just sounded to good to be true. A ring that would suddenly give you good luck? All I can say is be careful. These days there are many unscrupulous people preying on desperate people in desperate times. I get several different letters and e-mails aweek about increasing my luck by paying for talismans and spells that it has become ridiculous. About a month ago, I received a letter from a woman claiming she could give me a 6 month report telling all of my lucky days, my lucky numbers, and when I would meet the love of my life... really? Why is it they know all of this now, but not 10 months ago before I was laid off? Hmmm...? Be very careful everyone. I really hate to see good people lose their money over incredible crap.

    I responded to her ad that I saw in "Good Housekeeping" magazine. Haven't sent any money yet, but was considering it. She says everything a person wants to believe in the letters she sends.(at least 2 a week!!) I happen to live in Sparks Nevada and was going to check out that address on Baring Blvd to see if this Destiny Research Center actually exists but you have saved me the time and trouble. Thanks! I can't believe the nerve of bloodsuckers like Maria Duval who prey on peoples hopes for happiness and a better life. What a phoney. Karma will get her.She couldn't actually look in the mirror and like what she sees.
