Cops are looking for three women who posed as psychics to swindle an elderly woman out of nearly $2,000.

Officials have released this photo of one of the suspects.

They say she was one of three women who approached a 72-year-old woman in the street and told her she would be plagued by evil spirits if she didn’t cleanse her money.

The women offered to clean her cash but instead pocketed the money, and gave her back a bag filled with newspaper.
