Sherry Tina Uwanawich, a 28-year-old woman from South Florida, was sentenced to three years and four months in prison for a $1.6 million curse scam. The scam involved her asking a Texas woman to pay her large sums of money to remove a curse from her family, that the money is needed for crystals and candles to perform meditations that will lift the curse.
Uwanawich gained the woman’s trust and managed to convince her that a curse was placed on her and her family when she met her in 2007. In addition to imprisonment, Uwanawich must also pay for restitution, as court records detailed.
