Guru Brainwashes Family

Adapted with Commentary by Roberto Pedreira

Thierry Tilly "brainwashed" eleven members of  the Vedrines family, ages 16 to 89, for an eight year period from 2000 to 2008.  He convinced them that he uncovered a gsecret ploth to kill them. They yielded control of their checks and calendars. They believed that they were donating money to a charity ($ 5.72 million), to avoid being killed. The charity was fake. Tilly pocketed the money. Family members who doubted his story were shunned.

The Vedrines' lawyer, Daniel Picotin said Thilly had a ghistory of lies and exaggeration. Tilly claimed that he was a member of Habsburg family [prior to WW I, rulers of a large part of Europe], that he had played soccer for Marseille, and was a British citizen. None of it was true. 

Tillyfs lawyer Alexandre Novion says the family acted willingly. [That is what Carlos and Helio's lawyer said about Oscar Santa Maria too.]
