Wow. Something similar happened to my friend. A old lady came knocking on his door and said with a smile and conviction that his car licensee plate has the first and or last numbers of her SSN# and to change it. She said she has lost a lot of money because of him.
My assumption is that she could have mental problems or just plain crazy. Wouldn't sweat it.

I assure you, you and your family are not cursed. Ever heard of "power of suggestion"? It works I tell ya. So don't let some weirdo on the street suggest you are going to bring a curse into your family by your posture or how you put your hand on your chin or face. This only works when you give your power away to the suggestion.@@: Pahleeeeezzzzzz.

I would chalk it up to the lady being a whackadoodle and go on with life. Was it an older lady? She could have been having an Alzheimer's incident even. In her last years my Granny said all kinds of nutty things that made absolutely no sense whatsoever and it sounds like something she would have spouted off.
I did however cast a curse (in a fashion). I told my daughters that I cursed each of them to have two kids that are every bit as honery as they were! My mom put this same curse on my sister and me- and it worked!

I think she was just nuts...
Never seen or heard of this, and nothing comes up researching it either. Did she appear as any specific nationality, or region, like Caribbean, etc.?
My first thought was maybe a voodoo thing (given skin color). But, I even checked some magic references, and not seeing it there either. (magical lore is kind of a hobby of mine).
The other culture heavily into gesture curses are the Italians, but nothing there either.edit on 16-4-2013 by Gazrok because: (no reason given)
