Philadelphia, PA. – A scamming brother and sister team in Bucks County will be headed to trial after having waived their right to a preliminary court hearing waived. The duo allegedly stole over $20,000 from a senior citizen under the pretense of giving her “psychic services”.

The Bucks County Courier Times reports that 24-year-old Amanda Thompson and her 28-year-old brother, Rocky Samuel, took complete advantage of the elderly woman after she called a local psychic back in April and requested a card reading.

The 89-year-old victim, who wishes to remain anonymous, states that she provided her credit card number to Thompson and Samuel in exchange for psychic visits and phone calls in the hopes of getting a handle on her string of bad luck she had recently been experiencing. The victim was under the understanding that a company called Psychic Energy Reading in Bensalem would charge her card a set amount that they had talked about for their services.

She got the shock of her life when she noticed a charge of $9,000 that was not authorized by her. This caused her to investigate further and she discovered over $15,000 more in unauthorized purchases and charges, according to court records. It appears that the brother/sister duo took her for about $24,000.

Thompson and Samuel are both being charged with receiving stolen property, conspiracy, and theft. Samuel has a few more charges, which include kidnapping and burglary charges for allegedly forcing the woman to make withdrawals from banks. The burglary charges stem from him advising the woman to remove certain tools from her house that were supposedly associated with the people who were causing trouble. She took the items he requested to him and he kept them.

The siblings are currently free on an unsecured $50,000 bail. Bucks County’s Court of Common Pleas will be receiving the case and continuing from there shortly.
