A Moroccan national who pretends to be a holy healer had been reported to the police for allegedly defrauding a 60-year-old woman in Italy, Italian news agency ANSA wrote on Saturday.

The 57-year-old man told the woman in question that he is capable of healing physical and psychological illnesses, receiving from her 26,000 euros.

The woman who believed that she suffers from depression said that the Moroccan man, who presented himself in the beginning as a vendor, approached her and said that he can help her with her depression.

He later told her that she has cancer and asked her to pay him 40,000 euros. The woman doubted his diagnosis and underwent medical checks that refuted his conclusions. She reported the incident to the police.
