(Gaston, OR) -- A Portland woman who calls herself a psychic is facing federal charges for allegedly bilking the heir to a Gaston tree farm out of millions of dollars. Prosecutors say 43-year-old Rachel Lee and some of her relatives allegedly took over the family business and the victim's corporate and personal accounts, using the proceeds to pay for stays at luxury hotels, a sports car, and several properties. The U.S. Attorney's Office says nearly the entire 12-hundred-acre tree farm was eventually sold off for about 12-million dollars. Prosecutors say Lee worked in Bend and has been affiliated with psychic shops in Canby, St. Helens, and Portland.
