King allegedly advised the victim that she was cursed and would need to give her the money to lift it.
She reportedly told the victim that she would bury the money and was not to tell anyone about what happened or the curse would return.
The victim’s money was not recovered.
King is being charged with Grand Larceny 3rd Degree, Grand Larceny 4th Degree and Fortune Telling. She will be arraigned on Sunday in First District Court in Hempstead.
