Another Psychic Fraud On Trial
Let the dominoes fall one by one.

One of Northern Ireland’s most high-profile psychics has appeared in court charged with fraud.
Patrick Doak, who runs the Centre of Angels complex on Belfast’s Falls Road, sat in the dock at Laganside Crown Court yesterday as his trial got under way.
The 50-year-old, from Lagmore Meadows in Dunmurry, faces seven counts including false accounting and fraud.
In the dock alongside the spiritualist was Bridgene Kelly, Mr Doak’s sister.
The medium is the president of the International Spiritualist Union and is head of his own Spiritualist Church.
The Centre of Angels’ website reads: “Patrick Doak has been aware of spirits around him from a young age.
“He has practised as a medium and spiritual healer for many years.”

Now, it is true that this case revolves around fraudulent financial dealings, and forgery rather than any proof of having used their psychic powers specifically to defraud their clients. It says a lot that they are willing to defraud people at all, through any means, and they certainly used their organization in that pursuit.
