Niall Rice, a 33-year-old Internet consultant, is unenviable in many ways. He has a substance abuse problem, and he lost Michelle, the fabulous woman he met in a rehab clinic, to a drug overdose. She could have been the one, he says.
But the reason you’re reading about Rice today is because he took his sorrows to two “psychics,” Priscilla Kelly Delmaro (a.k.a. Christina) and a woman named Brandy (no last name given). They promptly started robbing him blind, Rice claims. According to a legal complaint he filed, the women relieved him of $718,000. At one point, he agreed to buy Brandy a $40,000 Tiffany’s ring “to ward off evil spirits.”
