A phony spiritualist is working on a scam involving a banker's daughter. He mesmerizes the daughter in the hopes that it will lead him to extort money from the banker. One of the swami's accomplices turns out to be an undercover reporter working on a story to expose the spiritualist. When the reporter confides to the banker's daughter his true identity, another of the swami's henchmen overhears and tells the phony mystic. Trapping the banker's daughter and the reporter, the spiritualist demands money from the banker or else.
