The following is the one of the scams often used by Indian Gurus and is targeted specifically at western women.
The money making sales pitch by Indian spiritual gurus goes like this: "In the Internet you can find millions of mantras. But which one is right for you? Now you can ask Swami XYZ for a personal mantra for your issues of love and relationships, finance, health, or your spiritual way.
By working with your personal mantra you can bring your consciousness to another level". "Swami Ji will connect with your energy and find the mantra which is beneficial, particularly for you!"
These Indian gurus are misguiding people in their sales pitch; they are confusing people by giving false impression that their mantras can solve the problems of relationship or finance. Let's understand why.
There are thousands of these gurus in almost every part of India wearing orange clothes and long beard to create mystery in people minds. Let's say these people have magical powers; then why does more than 70 % of India's population live on less than one dollar a day?
Why has India stayed as a poor country for so many years?
Let's say these Indian gurus have the power to create the feeling of love in another person's mind. This is what they claim indirectly when they tell women that they will correct their relationship in life.
Why has India earned the dubious distinction of being the country where maximum number of murders takes place in the world, three times more than its neighbour Pakistan and double the figures in United States?
Why can't these gurus fill the mind of Indians with peace and love in their own country? The most riotous state of India is Gujarat, where hundreds of thousands of people died.
Incidentally this is also the place where a number of renown spiritual gurus of India live and have their headquarters.
So the question is if their presence is so peaceful, why have all these riots happened in their own state?
Normally these gurus claim that they know a lot about Hindu scriptures and religious studies, but they do the exact opposite.
They exploit by focussing on magic and mantras to mislead and make people dependent on them as they understand people psychology very well, that people normally wants some sort of magic.
The spiritual gurus in India use the same technique which is often used by con artist. First, gain the trust of women, tell mysterious stories and create the mystery in her mind, and then exploit them.
So rather than making people independent as enlightened Buddha always encouraged these gurus are making people dependent on them by giving them false hope.
