All over the world, psychics, spiritualists, and other cons claiming to have supernatural powers get away with taking in the gullible. But it looks like Russia has put a stop to at least one of them. The story tells that Grigory Grabovoy scammed people into thinking that he could raise the dead if they just paid him enough money (the equivalent of a few thousand dollars).
He gets 11 years in prison for his scam.
Obviously his lawyers don't think it's fair, saying, "We think the sentence is based on speculation and is absolutely unfair."
Speculation? Someone taking money for services that I damn well bet he hasn't performed is speculation? ROFL!
Good job Russia!
