Three American women have been accused of scamming people out of thousands of dollars by promising to cleanse them of evil spirits.

Polly Evans, 36, Bridgette Evans, 32, and Olivia Evans, 22, are facing federal fraud charges, said federal prosecutors in Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Prosecutors claim the women promised people they could get rid of evil spirits through religious cleansing - including one person who was told a Rolex watch was needed to remove demons.

It is believed that least 59,000 dollars (£36,000) was scammed from victims in the US and the Caribbean nation of Anguilla.

Bridgette Evans, who is Polly's sister, is being held without bail in South Florida.

Polly and Olivia Evans, who are mother and daughter, were arrested in Texas and will be extradited to Florida.
