Handan Z., 40, reportedly made contact with the psychic, Mustafa Kılıç, on Facebook on the strength of her friends' advice due to some failed business ventures. The woman came to Istanbul twice to meet Kılıç in the hopes of improving her business life.x

The woman allegedly gave Kılıç her diamond ring worth 30,000 liras, close to 500 grams of gold, as well as more money to break her run of bad luck. The psychic reportedly put the items in a small bag and prayed over them.

He then allegedly gave the bag to the woman and told her not to open it until the bad luck ended.

Handan Z. realized that she had been cheated when she opened the bag and found small rocks in it after going back to Switzerland.

The woman has reportedly filed a complaint against the psychic, who was already on trial on 12 different cases of swindling.
