Rhiannon Leetham and the mouth of madness

This isn’t a story I’d usually pursue. But seeing as the mother is hawking a media release I reckon it’s fair game.

The above video is Rhiannon Leetham, 12, of Canberra explaining how wonderful it is being a young entrepreneur.

Sounds great I hear you say. But what is this young business person selling?

A learn to be psychic course, of course.

Because you’re never too young to sell dreams to the gullible.

Credit where it’s due the website is extremely well written for a 12 year old. Sure it’s heavy on block caps and large fonts, but this isn’t a product aimed at a discerning audience.

At the top of the page Rhiannon suggests that signing up to her course might grant such powers as:

    How about having the ability to PREDICT THE NEXT WINNER at the races? Or HEAL sick animals and relatives, using just the power of your mind?

    MAYBE you’d prefer to spend your time flying around places you’ve never even visited – past, present or future. Or tune your ESP to know things you always wanted to know.

    OR JUST PERHAPS you’d use your secret powers to attract love and wealth into your life, without ANY effort whatsoever!

More importantly is the message just down the page in large red block caps: PSYCHIC POWERS ARE COMPLETELY SAFE.

Let’s see how safe you are after lifting $10k off a bookie who finds out you were cheating. Oh wait, maybe they’re safe because they don’t work?

At $99.95 (USD) it’s not cheap, but the website informs, in large letters no less that it’s “GUARANTEED”!

In my opinion it’s bad enough that Charly Leetham, who issued the media release, is profiting from selling moonshine to the public. But throwing a 12 year old out in front of the scam really is a bit much.

UPDATED: Thanks to poptop for digging up Charly Leetham’s website.

Seems the IT world is treating your favourite Leetham with contempt. She needs a little help it would seem ;). Glad I study networking instead … I’m not likely to be the “Right Resource”.

Mind you I’d question CIT internal vetting procedure for advertising material.

and I quote:

“Attention: To All student

Business Name: The Leetham Trust (trading as ask Charly Letham).

Charyl Leetham is seeking personnel to assist in the delivery of work to clients over the Internet.

they would prefer that successful applicants have their own ABN and act as
subcontractors to our companies although, we may consider a traineeship / cadetship if
the right resource presents itself.

For successful applicants, the work is anticipated to be on an ongoing basis.

Please forward your applications to: with Subject Line: CIT – Application For Web Development

Or for any enquiries contact Charly Leetham on 0411 573 983 “

I’ll spare you the attatched mangled docx content for the three positions, needless to say I’d want six figures to work across several European and US timezones …

give her a call if you’re interested …. lol

All I can say is that all the psychic power, MBA study (from which Institution remains a mystery), mentoring and other foolproof methods don’t appear to have kept this family out of financial harm’s way.

So what’s the lesson?
