Just before Thanksgiving, fraud charges against television psychic Miss Cleo were dropped in Florida, and now Youree del Harris, the real woman behind the crystal ball, has broken her silence.
On camera, Harris told Channel 10 News that despite what prosecutors say, she is the real thing and does have psychic abilities, which she calls the "gift of sight."
"Everything that I said on the TV that
were my words, was real," Harris said. "Call me now
was something required by contract to say. When I'd encounter
people on the street and they said, 'Cleo we tried to call.' And
I said, 'Don't call that number dear.'"
The commercials are off the air, and the
company, which produced them, Access Resource Services, has
settled with the state.

Charges against the woman pitched
to millions as psychic Miss Cleo were dropped as part of the state's
$44 million settlement with her promoter.
Youree Dell Harris, better known as the telemarketing Miss Cleo, was
charged with deceptive trade practices in a civil suit filed by the
Florida attorney general's office. She was dismissed as a defendant
after the settlement was filed in court.
Her attorney, William Cone said Harris was rejoicing and maintains
"an active practice as a shaman."
Under the settlement, Access Resource Services Inc., which
trademarked the Miss Cleo name, agreed to pay refunds, halt all
pay-per-call services and take no new customers for prepaid services
Harris was not required to pay anything in the settlement, but her
messages are no longer allowed on the air.
Cleo is now 'OUT OF BUSINESS'!
behind Miss Cleo's psychic hot line agreed 11.14.2002
to forgive $500 million in customer bills
to settle a federal lawsuit alleging they fleeced callers hoping
to glimpse the future. Also agreed to stop selling their alleged
soothsaying services over the phone. Will also pay the
government a $5 million fine. The
companies did not admit breaking any law but agreed to stop the
phone service and forgive about $500 million in outstanding
charges. They also must return all uncashed checks to customers.

billion and collected half of

Cleo, You Are Sinning Against YAHUVEH!
What! YAHUSHUA Messiah Still Loves You!
Miss Cleo, Medium, Psychic, Shaman
[ see her
in a trance during a TV commercial below ]
We've seen your ads all over TV, telling us
how we can call the number on our screen and, with only a credit card in
hand, we can find out what our future holds. It appears that you can
tell a caller anything and everything they need to know based on how the
Tarot cards come up.
Wrong With Fortune Telling?
Is there anything wrong with this?YES!
Isn't fortune telling just
entertainment, for fun, without hurting anyone?
Fortune telling, through the use of Tarot cards or psychic ability or in
any manner, is strictly forbidden by
YAHUVEH. Read what He has to say about this kind of activity
There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his
daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an
observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, or a charmer, or a
consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For
all that do these things are an abomination unto the YAHUVEH [YAHUVEH].
Miss Cleo, we know you have rejected
the Truth of YAHUSHUA Messiah and the above warning, and have given
yourself over to seducing spirits. This is satanic.
It appears that you have been plying your trade for a long time,
given how quickly you come up with answers to the callers' questions.
You do know, of course, that you get all your answers from demons.
All those who have called you, or consulted with any fortune teller
or psychic, have sinned and opened themselves to
We read in the Old Testament about Saul the first king of Israel,
a YAHUVEH fearing man, who at one time killed all the witches and sorcerers.
However, when he did wrong, YAHUVEH turned His face away from him.
When Saul wanted to fight with the Philistines, he sought YAHUVEH's
counsel, but He did not answer Saul. Instead of soul searching and
repenting from his sins in the presence of YAHUVEH, Saul asked a woman
(sorcerer) to call the spirit of Samuel (who was a great prophet of
and was dead at the time). The woman called Samuel's spirit for the king
to counsel. When Samuel's spirit was called, he said: Why have you
called and distressed me? This false spirit was an
evil one that had showed himself as Samuel's spirit.
Mediums or sorcerers absolutely have no access to call the spirits
of dead people, any manifestation belongs to evil
spirits and their job is deceiving
the people and bringing them under the curse of
YAHUVEH to get control over them and their offspring. This
wrong doing was the reason YAHUVEH turned His face from Saul, took away his
kingship and gave it to David. Saul died in his sin.
We pray that no one reading this, who is a Christian, has fallen
prey to your seducing spirits and called for a reading. If they have,
they have sinned a great sin and they had better get on their knees, confess this sin to the
YAHUVEH, and ask for his forgiveness.
Don't be deceived! If you do not, the YAHUVEH will hold this sin against
you and you WILL face judgment for disobeying Him.
Excerpt from "Hypnosis: Medical,
Scientific, or Occultist" by Martin & Deidre Bobgan...
"At its worst [hypnotism], it opens an individual to psychic experiences and satanic possession. When mediums go into hypnotic trances
(see picture of Miss Cleo in a trance
below) and contact the 'dead' [demons], when clairvoyants reveal information which they could not possibly know, when
fortunetellers through self-hypnosis reveal the
future, Satan is at work.

Hypnosis is an altered state of
consciousness and the shamanic state of consciousness. Satan transforms himself into an angel of light
whenever necessary to accomplish his schemes. If he can make an occult practice
(hypnotism) look beneficial through a false facade (medicine or science), he will. It is obvious that hypnosis is lethal if used for
evil purposes [and] is potentially lethal for whatever purposes it is used. The moment one surrenders himself
to the doorway of the occult, even in the halls of science and medicine, he is vulnerable to the powers of

"This sight is just plain CRAP. Miss Cleo isn't even a real psychic. How is she a sinner? Other than the
fact that she SCAMS people out of their money, she hasn't done anything wrong. You religious people
are just plain nuts."
Cleo is truly a psychic and what she is doing is wrong, not to mention
the way she and the company hosting her psychic hotline are ripping off
people. See the news article below. There is great spiritual deceit
taking place right now. We are raising the red flag to warn people about
people like Miss Cleo. Emails like the one above do not deter us from
spreading the Gospel and making information like this available. Wake
up, dear ones. You are only one heartbeat away from Eternity. Will you
be spending it in Heaven, or Hell. You don't have very much time to
decide. Turn to YAHUSHUA Messiah, go to Heaven.

MISS CLEO SUED FOR FRAUD
Source: Associated Press
Published: July 25, 2001 Author: Paul Sloca
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri's attorney general has filed lawsuits
against a television psychic hot line for allegedly violating the state's
no-call law and consumer fraud.
"Miss Cleo should have seen this coming," Attorney General Jay Nixon said.
"It doesn't take a crystal ball to realize that ripping off consumers isn't
Nixon filed two suits Tuesday against Access Resources Services Inc., a Florida company best-known for promoting Miss Cleo's tarot psychic reading.
Speaking with a Caribbean accent, Miss Cleo appears in national television
commercials promising insights into love, money and other personal matters.
The lawsuits filed in St. Louis Circuit Court allege 94 violations of the
state's no-call list. The company faces fines of up to $5,000 per violation
if found liable for calling people who requested privacy.
Sean Moynihan, a New York City-based attorney representing Access, said the
state has no basis for suing the company.
"We strongly disagree with the contentions that are raised in the lawsuits,"
Moynihan said. "We are very anxious to work with the attorney general to
demonstrate that the business practices of Access are proper and do adhere to
Nixon said Missourians were billed for free services and that the company
misrepresented reduced rates and waiver fees. For example, customers spent
three minutes on the phone providing information including a name, address
and phone number then were charged for time spent on hold waiting to speak with a psychic.
Missouri residents who never requested the service, including deceased people, have received bills for Miss Cleo's services, Nixon said. Moynihan
said telephone companies are responsible for billing, not the company.
The company also charged consumers for calls made by minors who did not receive parental consent, Nixon said. Moynihan said the company has
safeguards to prevent minors from calling, and only those who lie about their age can get through to the psychic.
Mark Pryor, Arkansas' attorney general, sued Access last year for alleged
fraud, saying the company had "used just about every trick in the book to
mislead and overbill consumers."
