Edmond de Valles
Mr de Valles’ four-page diatribe from Geneva has the familiar promise of love, money and happiness ever after.
As a clairvoyant and medium, Edmond claims a cosmic anomaly occurred when you were born which prevented your Harmonale (harmonic base) correctly initializing.
Apparently, Edmond has the power to restore your harmonale. Just pay him $65 and he will send you your Birth Stone and the “Rites of Purification and Sanctification”.
Edmond has also foreseen you winning $13,000. For this to happen, you absolutely need a Lapis Lazuli for $33. How on earth could we all survive without a Lapis Lazuli!
His letter also includes an entry for one single prize of US$13,000. The very fine print alongside a printed “Cheque Acceptance Form” states “Entry form – free postal draw with no purchase required. Under the control of an independent supervisor in Geneva, with one winner and a number of losers. Prize at stake a cheque for US$13,000”.
Of course, there will be a number of losers. But we doubt there will be a winner.
This is an all too familiar theme. We predict that all you will get for your money is some coloured stones.
