He also offers to send his “magical protective eye” in return for £37.
The letters have been traced to a PO box in Switzerland and authorities there have been alerted by the Sunday Mail.

Sunday Mail psychic astrologer Frank Pilkington said: “Conmen like Master Ramdoo can do untold damage. These kinds of letters belong in one place, the bin.”
The Swiss Embassy said: “We need people who have received these letters to contact us at the Swiss Embassy in London
