Feng Sui Fraud
Feng shui, sometimes defined as an ancient Chinese system of aesthetics uses the laws of both Heaven (astronomy) and Earth (geography) to help one improve life by receiving positive qi.The practice is still popular among Chinese all over the world and often, charlatans posing as learned Feng Shui masters prey on unsuspecting victims as in the case of a 36-year-old architect who bought a house at Lakefield, Sungai Besi in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. His girlfriend had recommended that he consult her feng shui master who had then told him that he had a spell of bad luck which needed to be turned around for a fee. The man promptly issued a cheque for RM29,260 to cover the feng shui expenses . After conducting some rituals , the master did not just tell the man to keep mum on the matter but had also demanded RM15,000 for an amulet which would protect the man and his girlfriend. Then, when the girlfriend said that the amulet was broken and asked for another RM30,000 to replace it, the man started to suspect both the master and his girlfriend.He did not just refused to pay but ended up separated from his girlfriend of five years. In a press conference, he had proclaimed I won’t believe in feng shui any more after what had happened. Now, does this make you wonder here if it is the art of Feng Shui, the unscrupulous master, the questionable girlfriend or the trusting man himself that is at fault?
