CNNMoney Exclusive Investigation: The Hunt for Maria Duval

CNNMoney’s award-winning investigative journalists Blake Ellis and Melanie Hicken embarked on a months-long investigation to search for the woman who is the face of one of the biggest cons in history — French psychic Maria Duval.

The scam has lasted more than 20 years and has spanned more than a dozen countries. It has allegedly claimed at least 1.4 million victims in the United States alone.

And yet authorities around the world have been unable to shut it down.

In a five-part series beginning today, Ellis and Hicken trace the evolution of the scheme, uncovering a surprising world of shell companies and businessmen, and the role of Duval herself, whose existence even investigators have questioned.

Explore the series in full at CNNMoney.com/MariaDuval, and catch Ellis and Hicken on CNN’s New Day on Thursday morning to hear more about their investigation.

THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO INSTITUTE OF POLITICS AND CNN ANNOUNCE PODCAST PARTNERSHIP

The University of Chicago Institute of Politics and CNN today announced a new partnership of the popular, critically acclaimed podcast “The Axe Files.”

Axelrod, a senior political commentator for CNN, launched the podcast in September 2015 at the Institute of Politics, a non-partisan extracurricular organization he founded three years ago at his alma mater.

The podcast, a series of revealing conversations with key players in the political world, has featured guests such as Bernie Sanders, Mitt Romney, Nancy Pelosi, and Spike Lee. To date the podcast has been downloaded nearly 900,000 times and praised by The A.V. Club as “an intimate and engaging discussion podcast.”

“When we started this podcast, I envisioned it as a chance to provide rare insights into some of the smartest people in politics, a way to give listeners a richer sense of who these people are and what they do,” said Axelrod. “With its growing podcast network, CNN is a perfect fit for this program, especially in this fascinating election year.”

The podcast launched as part of the CNN network on Monday, Feb. 22, and can be downloaded at CNN.com/podcast, on iTunes at iTunes.com/AxeFiles and on Stitcher.

First on CNN: Democratic Candidates on Snapchat Discover

The Democratic presidential hopefuls faced plenty of questions at the CNN Iowa Democratic Candidates Town Hall, including a special one exclusively for the CNN Snapchat Discover channel:

“If elected President, what specifically are you going to do for young people?"

Now live on Snapchat Discover, you can also read each of the candidate’s answers below and on CNNPolitics.com, to be credited to CNN: 

Sec. Hillary Clinton

“I’m going to do everything I can to get more young people involved. Not only in politics but also seeing roles for them in the government. Seeing them as young entrepreneurs. Getting more small businesses that they can start. Providing more opportunities for education to make it affordable to go to college and get the student debt down. I have a whole young persons agenda and I’m really focused on this because after all, you know that’s the future and we’re supposed to be trying to do our best to make the future work for those coming after."

Gov. Martin O'Malley

“I’m going to speak to the goodness that’s within our country that I hear articulated all the time whenever I talk to young people under 30. We are moving to a much more connected, compassionate and generous place. We need to square our shoulders to the big challenges of our times like climate change and the changing nature of conflict, and realize that in this world of ours there is really one yearning – the whole world over – and that is the yearning for a job. To be able to give our kids a better future. That’s what it’s all about. That’s what we do best as Americans. And that’s what we need to do again in this generation."

Sen. Bernie Sanders

“What we’re going to do is end the absurdity of having a rigged economy and a corrupt campaign finance system. We’re going to revitalize American democracy and make our government work for all people rather than a handful of billionaires.  We’re going to make public colleges and universities tuition free, because everybody in this country should have the right to a college education regardless of the income of their families."

Today CNN announced that they are rolling out  ‘Giving Birth in America,’ a three-part film series executive-produced by global maternal health advocate and founder of Every Mother Counts, Christy Turlington Burns.  The series examines some of the contributing factors that have made the U.S. the only industrialized country with a consistently rising maternal mortality rate.  The films will publish across CNN’s digital platforms today.

Available at www.cnn.com/mothers, each short film follows pregnant women and their healthcare providers in Florida, Montana and New York in the days leading up to delivery. Together, they navigate challenges of race, poverty, chronic illness, overuse of medical interventions and other inequalities that impact maternal health outcomes in America. 

“We are thrilled that CNN recognizes the urgency of this issue and grateful for the opportunity to reach new audiences and inspire others to take action through their platform,” said Turlington Burns. “Most maternal deaths in the U.S. are preventable. Together, we can make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother, everywhere.”
