|Prohetess, Sandra Lee Allen! |
Fake Prophetess Scammed Woman Out of $100k, Said Money Would Help Her ‘Get Right With God’
"I'm having a very hard time understanding how folks can be so naive, easily tricked, or deceived into believing this kind of mess."
A Washington woman proclaimed to her friend that she was a prophetess, and bilked the friend out of $100,000 in just a little over a month. The alleged scammer told her friend that one of her ancestors had committed a murder and paying the money would help her ‘get right with the Lord,’ according to police.
Sandra Lee Allen, 54, claimed that Elizabeth Hughes needed to catch up on ten years of back tithes and then pay it forward by tithing ten years into the future. Allen coupled that story with another apocalyptic story about how the Lord told her an earthquake was coming and that Hughes would lose her son in the disaster if she didn’t pay up.
Allen claimed that she was using $100k to build her ministry, but instead she bought a Jaguar X-Type and spent in excess of $30,000 per month at stores like Nordstrom, Coach, and Best Buy.
