“All the secrets in this letter must remain between us”

Here is the enlarged image of the “Talisman” included in the package from Ms Fortune. From just a casual examination, I noticed several visual patterns. I have marked three areas where one of the patterns is repeated. The red boxed area was selected and copied. It was then placed, as a layer in Photoshop Elements©, on the three areas marked with blue boxes. The copied layer exactly matched the ‘text’ in those three areas. “Coincidence?“ I seriously doubt it.

As I said, I am not a Hebrew scholar, I cannot read or translate the ‘text’, but I would find it extremely unusual and highly improbable for the selected text to be duplicated, line for line and character for character, in other places. Remember, just as I could make copies of parts of the image for comparison purposes, duplicating text or other things is a trivial task on any modern computer. That is what makes generating these letters so economical and fast; I’m sure you’ve heard of and probably even used “mail-merge.”
