A grieving woman in Scotland, is angry after learning that she had been scammed by a psychic.

47-year-old Karen Brannigan paid £38 ($55) to a psychic who goes by the name Lillyanne, in hopes of hearing from her late mother.

Brannigan of Glasgow, soon received a letter that was allegedly from her late mother. However, she soon realized that other customers had received the exact same message from their deceased loved ones.

After being confronted, a spokesperson for Lillyanne said that it was an “administrative error” and that means a letter had accidentally been sent to multiple clients.

Brannigan said that she first saw Lillyanne on a television program and she later contacted her through her Facebook page, which has more than 150,000 followers.

Brannigan said that her mother recently died and she “became caught up in it. My husband thought I was crazy, but I just wanted to try.”

However, Brannigan became suspicious of the letter that she received in the mail because the things written in the letter was not what her mother would have said.

It included vague messages about her mother loving her, a new baby being born in the family, someone getting a tattoo and that her favorite flowers were yellow. “My mum hated flowers,” she said. “There was nothing in it that stood out to me.”

Brannigan reached out to other clients and learned that they received the same letter “from their deceased loved ones.”

Brannigan was offered a refund and a free reading, which she did not accept.

In response to the scandal, Lillyanne took to Facebook, where she wrote: “Recently, we had to terminate the contract of a corrupt administrator of this page as the work she was doing for us wasn’t up to standard. After this, we became aware that a small number of readings were sent to our clients that were similar to other readings that other people had received.

“How it works is Lillyanne prepares the heaven letters, sends them to administrators who then forward these to the people who have booked.

“The corrupt administrators sent similar readings to a very small number of clients. As soon as we became aware of this, we rectified the problem within 24 hours and gave refunds or re-booked the affected people.”
