Houdini Exposes Fake Medium in the Scranton, Wilkes-Barre Pocono region. The greatest magician, escape artist and lock picker of all time!

Houdini did not like cheats! Ed Gerrity wrote in his column, "This is My Town," in The Scranton Times of Houdini exposing a charlatan in Wilkes-Barre. He wrote, "When performing one year in Scranton, Houdini was summoned to Wilkes-Barre and investigated a case that was disturbing the authorities. He went to the Baron City and exposed a fake spiritual medium who was milking the public of its cold cash. The medium got the bum's rush from Wilkes-Barre after Houdini's report on him and demonstration of his act. Houdini was death on fakers that went around taking money from unsuspecting people."
