• Police launched an investigation after receiving multiple complaints
  • Flyers endorsing her services were spotted in the Golden Gate area in Naples
  • The suspect allegedly asked people to bring all their cash to cleanse them of "darkness"

A woman in Florida swindled more than $100K from people by promising to solve their relationship problems through her "witchcraft services," police said Monday.

Police launched an investigation last month after they received multiple complaints about the fraud. The first report was made on March 14. The complainant said he contacted a woman named Rosalia after seeing a flyer at a 24-hour laundromat on the Golden Gate area of East Naples. The advertisement reportedly promised "witchcraft services" for relationship issues and offered a "100% guarantee."

"If you're having an argument with your wife/girlfriend, she can help you with your problems," the advertisement read, NBC 2 reported, citing a police report.

Investigators also found several others ads endorsing her services in free Hispanic newspapers, local Hispanic radio stations and at several laundromats and stores. The newspaper and the radio ads were published in December 2020.

Police are now seeking help from the public to trace the woman. They have also released sketches of the suspect.

The suspect was described as a Hispanic or Eastern European woman who would speak "Spanish with an unknown accent/dialect." She is 5 feet 2 inches tall with a medium build, blonde hair and dark roots, the Naples Police Department said in a statement. Those with information can contact the police department at 239-213-4844.

A victim told investigators that Rosalia first offered tarot card readings and other spiritual services and then asked them to bring as much cash as possible. She claimed that she would take the money to "her temple" in Fort Myers to clean them of "darkness," police said, NBC 2 reported.

Rosalia reportedly asked some of her victims to bring all their money, claiming that she would bless the cash and multiply them. She would completely stop responding to their texts and calls after the money was handed over to her, the department said.
