Authorities in Malaysia say that calls concerning magic spells, mediums, and other occult matters are overwhelming police.
A whopping 1,172 complaints against mediums were reportedly made to law enforcement in 2017 alone and an additional 1,320 incidents of theft by way of hypnotism were also reported last year.
In most cases, the victims of these odd capers sought help from purported mediums to cure illnesses or remove hexes which they believed had been cast on them.
Others turned to the self-styled psychics in the hopes of acquiring money through black magic, but wound up on the financial losing end of the exchange after buying 'blessed' objects that ultimately bore no riches.
