New Jersey, New York, Philadelphia, Las Vegas, Florida, Los Angeles and Houston: Brillon said these states and cities make up the psychic circuit. Houston's Galleria is just a payday pit stop for swindlers looking to make some extra cash, he said.
"They're out to steal your money," said Brillon. "From the time they say 'hello' until the time they cut off their relationship with you, that's their entire goal."
Investigators admit these cases can be difficult to prove. Brillon said the three psychics in The Galleria cases promised to return the money after they prayed over it. Because they made that claim and then didn't return the cash, Brillon said it's flat out theft.
If you've seen any of the women in our investigation, call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
