I found a website that directly lifts from Miss Cat's correspondence course. I had showed it to a friend and he told me that he thought it was plagerized from the course. He pulled out his book and verified it was stolen.

I have not taken the course but I thought you should know. They offer a 52 week course similar to miss cats and after seeing this I thought they are selling miss cats work without credit to her.

I apologize if this is in the wrong place. Thank you for reviewing it though as stealing is never ok.

After checking out the website a bit more thoroughly I also found plagerized content from The Conjure Workbook by Starr Casas. They have used her full color photos and even her style of writting which clashes greatly with Miss Cats.

May justice be swift.

Some material has been removed but some still stands. The photos from the conjure workbook vol1 seem to be gone as well as the info about the 52 week course.

The formulas and foot track magic info still remain.

History of Copyright infringement:

In October, 2015, attempted to take my course but did not have any Black friends on Facebook, was not my Facebook friend, had not made purchases of books or products and thus did not qualify, plus the credit card she gave for her other purchases was declined due to non-avaialable address information.

Nikki sent email with information about the course (a link to as usual) and told her that we needed to check her address as the credit card was not verifying through our system. We received no response and the order was cancelled.

We never heard from her again.

In December 2016 a Forum user, Zabora, posted that Savannah had portions of my course and also the writings of Starr Casas online.

At the same time Papa Gee said that Carolina Dean reported via Facebook that he had found this woman of the Black Witch Coven website has stolen some of his work. "Digging deeper, he found AIRR pics on her love attracting page" and "also pics by Michele Jackson, Sindy Todo, and Miss Elvyra" on some pages. "She has also used some of Dean's articles and texts within her blog."

Navasiva sent a DMCA takedown notice and some pages were removed but others still remain.

As of January 2017, she is still hosting pages copied from my course book and is offering a 52 week course, copying my course text illegally (some of it online for public access), and saying that she does not require product purchases or an interview, nor turning in homework -- in short, she is selling my course.

Biography #1:

Claims to be a clinical psychologist.

Bio as a psychologist here:

Portrait is of a blonde Caucasian woman with long, straight hair and blue eyes, ... UX250_.jpg

She teaches online courses in infidelity recovery.

At her clinical psychology site she refers to herself in the third person:


Savannah holds Psychology degrees from Monash University, Australia: Bachelor Behavioral Science (BBSc), and post graduate degrees in Clinical Psychology. She also has many years of business management and coaching experience, and holds Management qualifications: Master Business Administration (MBA) and a Doctor Business Administration (DBA). She is currently completing a Masters in Mental Health Counseling through Walden University, USA.

Savannah is a member of the Australian Psychological Association (APA), an Associate Fellow Member of the Australian Institute of Management (AFAIM), and a Certified Prepare & Enrich Facilitator.

Savannah is COO of The Relationship Society.


Biography #2:

Bio as "BWS, a Hoodoo Witch" here:

Her logo image is the head of an sad or affectless goth woman with unnaturally large roses all over her head, like a decorated Santisima Muerte figure whose her face is painted to resemble a cross between a Mexican sugar skull and Sally, the rag-doll character from "The Nightmare Before Christmas." In fact, she looks pretty much like what you will see if you go to google images and type in "goth muerte sugar skull" (without the quotes).

She teaches a course in hoodoo containing straight copying from my course.

On her Hoodoo Witch site she tells about learning witchcraft in a "remote part of Europe" from a woman named Janika. There is no mention of hoodoo or Black Americans in her autobiography, but plenty of "Blessed Be."


Believe in things you never would,
Believe in things you never could.
Believe that you are meant for more
Believe that you can do it all.
Believe that if you want to, you can,
Believe that I will walk you by the hand.
But above all else, believe mewhen I say,
You are different,
You are powerful,
And you are special, on this day.
Blessed be.

I would call myself a traditional Witch, but my interests in magic are varied and I draw inspiration from a wide range of different influences and belief systems, such as Hoodoo, Voodoo, Paganism, Spiritualism, Chaos Magick, Sex Magick, Ceremonial Magick, Buddhism, and many other things.

My preferred types of magic are Candle Magic and Crystal/Gemstone Magic, and any magic which has a tie into nature. I enjoy a strong connection with nature and the elements, particularly water and fire.

I've been an actively practicing Witch for most of my life. I strongly believe in magic, and using it for all purposes. I have used magic in my own life to achieve many of my goals -- love, money, good friends and a happy life. I also use Hexes and Curses to keep me and my loved ones safe..

How did I get started? My first exposure to magic and witchcraft was as a child.

I was on holiday in a remote part of Europe, visiting a small village almost in the middle of nowhere.

As I walked around, I noticed a small hut, or shack, on the edge of the village next to the forest. It was dark, old looking, and broken down. There were strange trinkets hanging outside the door, and a wispy blue smoke curling out of the chimney. It looked spooky and mysterious, so I ventured closer.

Just as I got to the open door to look in, my mother appeared out of no-where and quickly ushered me away. She explained that this was the local witch, a powerful but dangerous woman who I should keep away from.

She was revered within the village and consulted in times of great crisis. Her powers were called upon by the villagers to help them with love, money and success, and to protect themselves and the village from evil. Naturally, being an inquisitive child I waited until her back was turned and went straight back there to meet the witch!

And well, to cut a long story short, it turns out she was not a dangerous mad old woman at all. She was a kind, warm, welcoming and open person who was more than happy to share her secrets with me. In fact, she was keen to pass on her ancient knowledge so that someone new could continue the age-old traditions.

She taught me everything she knew, all about spells, rituals, spirits, energy, grounding, visualization, candles, colors, herbs and much more.

I spent many years learning from Janika and discovered some incredible secrets of the world, nature and the universe. We became good friends, and I returned to visit her as often as I could.

Over time I have also learnt from many other experienced and talented witches from all over the world and many different forms of magic, as well as doing my own research in libraries and in dusty old books that have been forgotten by modern times. Time after time, I was shocked and amazed at the incredible hidden knowledge I was uncovering.

Knowledge that I continue to use everyday to change my life for the better.

Many people are skeptical of magic spells and the power of the natural forces and energies that surround us all and bind us together ...

But I have seen and felt and experienced the powerful effects of a properly cast spell myself, and now I want to share that power with you. That's why I set this website up, to share with you the secrets of magic that I have used to enrich my life.

I have many spells which I have collected from all over the world, from all ages of time. Some I have created myself. However all my spells are handwritten on parchment or paper, so it takes time for me to transfer these spells to my website.

So far I have added quite a lot, and I aim to add more regularly. If you haven't signed up for the newsletter make sure you do so. I often give spells and rituals away for free to my followers.

Use the menu at the top of the website to browse around the spell books and find a spell to help you out.

I do hope you find Hoodoo Witchcraft as fascinating as I have.

Blessed be,


Biogrphy #3:

At Black Witch Covern Learn Spells -- -- the logo reads,
in black on mustard-yellow:

Since 1991
Learn Spells
Easy 4 Step Method

In lieu of a detailed bio, here we first learn that "BWC is a real and working coven.
The Coven was started in Las Vegas, USA and currently has 13 members."

One of these members is none other than BWS the Hoodoo Witch, here known as Black Witch S[avannah], and now we get to meet her teacher Janika, the witch from the "remote part of Europe" -- only now (SURPISE!) Janika is (i shit you not!) "Our
Voodoo Witch & current spell caster. From Africa, she learned her craft from the
heart of Voodoo Magick. She is a 3rd generation Voodoo Spell Caster."

The full roster of the coven, as of 2017:

High Priestess Gloubess – Coven High Priestess.
Black Witch S – [no description]
Janika – Our Voodoo Witch & current spell caster. From Africa, she learned her craft
from the heart of Voodoo Magick. She is a 3rd generation Voodoo Spell Caster.
Lady Hannah – Loves White Magick, and follows Wiccan Law.
Lady Dawn – Pagan through and through. A major contributor to our courses and online
body of knowledge.
Jessica – Witch & Admin
David– Coven member.
Scott– Coven member.
Edwin-Witch (Master)
Damian -Witch
Silvana – Witch
Lena – Cards
TBA – Oct 2015

Some of the stock images of women from Hoodoo Witch reappear at Black Witch Coven,
however, there is no proper bio of Black WitchS -- expect she appears on VIDEO, with
her native Australian Accent! Only ... she is wearing a pixie-cut black wig now!

The video is embedded at the site, but here is a quick youtube link:

And when you go to the channel, you get this creepy video with moaning people and
images of dripping blood!


Biography # 4:

At Black WitchCoven -- -- some of the same stock images from Hoodoo Witch also appear and we also find blog posts from Hanna (of the Black Witch Coven) and BWS herself. The most amazing of these is "Ancestorial protection on people with African American background."

It is both illiterate and racist. It is basically ick, but, strangely, here we learn that
she "connect(s) with demons," and as for her interest in Voodoo, this sample should suffice:

"As Voodoo is based on creating a psychological fear in the mind of the target so
they respond physiologically, those people who know their ancestral roots and folk
law are effected much easier."

Say what?

I left a comment at her blog:

Not only are you badly disrespecting Voodoo and its adherents, you never answered the earlier querent above who asked about plagiarism. But YOU are a plagiarist and, actually worse, you are an unredeemable criminal copyright thief. Your autobiographical stories are beginning to conflict with one another, as well. Are you the clinical psychologist Dr. Savannah Ellis from Australia who is "a member of the Australian Psychological Association (APA)" or are you Miss Sav who learned "traditional witchcraft" while on holiday "as a child" in "a remote part of Europe" from a European witch named Janika, or is Janika instead "from Africa," and a "3rd generation Voodoo Spell Caster" who is a member of your Black Witch Coven coven in Las Vegas? I use my real name. I am really me. You tried to sign up for my hoodoo course in 2015 but as my helper Nikki explained to you, i only teach people i really know and who have some peronal connection to the African American community. You dropped out of contact and did not take the course, but you illegally copied it (as well as material written by Starr Casas) and put it online. I am blowing that scam wide open. I know from experience, and from watching how many fake personas and names you have created at multiple wordpress websites, that you are in the "course-making" racket as a profession. Copy-pasting my course was not the mistake of a young magical enthusiast. You live by stealing. You can call me at my shop and tell me when you have taken the pirated material offline.

I've seen some of her videos, as the word "Hoodoo" is in titles.. I see that she "teaches" a course but the link goes nowhere.
She's obviously a fraud but has SO many subscribers! I think I'm going to call her out as a fraud in the comment section of her videos.
. In order to get Miss Cat's course material, wouldn't she have had to have access to a hard copy of it?
Even if she took down everything she stole, she still needs to be exposed as a fraud, right?

Hello, GoldenRule ,

I'd just let it go if she took it down.

But, that's just me....

She goes by the name Black Witch S on YT. I knew her face looked familiar when I saw the FB link posted above. She wears a black wig on her videos. I could tell something was off about her when I watched her videos before, what a shame that people lift/steal content from the original creators and try to make a profit from it. I'd absolutely tar and feather her to the fullest extent of the law. She now claims to teach information on Demonology and Goetic Magick. Some of the stuff she's said in her videos make my head spin. She's getting people to work blood magic who have absolutely no idea what they're doing. Far be it from me to preach to anyone but when someone asks me about any practice I make sure to explain to them that they need to fully understand that which they intend to delve into. I dunno, she always gave me weird vibes, now I guess I know why. Sorry Cat, your work is beautiful and timeless and a true blessing to those of us who read it and use your products. I hope you get closure on this issue very soon.

WOW!! I am so sorry you were ripped off, Cat. The number of charlatans in the spiritual community is astounding. I've called out a few myself.

I know exactly who you are referring to. A few weeks ago I started researching black witches for a show I'm putting together. I stumbled upon Savannah Ellis on YouTube. I couldn't believe some of things she is teaching.

[deleted much personal opinion as not provable.0

I hope your situation was resolved peacefully.

The situation has not been resolved. She is a menace to almost every magical author who has material published.

Thanks for your interest. I did have to delete your personal reading on her -- it is off-topic.

No worries. I totally understand.

Wow!! The spiritual community is being taken over by so many charlatans! I hope you guys stay on top of it like you did with the other charlatan I read about on this forum - UNBELIEVABLE! I’m sure this forum has prevented a few from purchasing any of her services. Glad you guys are exposing these people for what they really are!

I do not agree that "the spiritual community is being taken over by so many charlatans." They are among us, for sure, but they are not taking over the field.

The number of copyright violators in the spiritual community is probably no more than in the academic community. The reason the offenses are so gravely shocking in the context of our community is that the perpetrators claim to operate from the moral position that they are spiritual practitioners.

I am absolutely in shock with this information! I've been following her in YouTube for quite a while, I found some things interesting and seeing she had so many subscribers kind of makes you think she is being legit. Turns out to be the whole opposite. I just can't comprehend why someone would go to this extent when the online community isn't all that big and she probably knew you would find out sooner or later...

Savannah Ellis was first exposed as a fraud and a multi-author plagiarist here in 2016 and to date she has shown no sign of remorse, shame, apology or recompense for her thefts.

She is an unrepentant and unforgiven criminal who has presented -- and sold -- as her own writing, art, and photographs the copyright protected writings, art, and photographs of Starr Casas, Carolina Dean, Michele Jackson, Sindy Todo, Miss Elvyra, and myself (catherine yronwode).

The best defense against an accusation of libel is to present the truth, with documentation.

Thank you very much for your help, Zabora, in locating the plagiarism, but i do not wish to get embroiled in an internet fight. We handle these matters legally, as best we can.
