Signs of Psychic Scams

The psychic industry, unfortunately, appears to be full of scam artists these days. The stories I hear from my clients are disheartening to say the least. If you have been scammed, please feel free to share your story. I have clients who are out of thousands of dollars in which, they will never recover. Here are a few helpful tips to let you know if you are being scammed.

1. They are trying to instill fear in you.
2. They want you to purchase items such as candles, crystals, etc. or something in your life will not come to pass.
3. They are requesting to be paid via Western Union (there is no recourse in getting your money back)
4. They are trying to sell you lottery numbers. (If we knew the lottery numbers we would play them ourselves!)
5. They have referenced Curse or Hex removal.
6. They want to charge for aura cleansing or negativity removal.
7. DO NOT send cash to a psychic either in the US or another country! (I have heard of many scams associated with this practice.)
8. Beware of letters that appear to be personally addressed to you. (I have seen them from some well known psychics, they are in fact a form letter in which everyone receives.)
9. DO NOT pay for spell work. (If it is a spell you seek, do it yourself, you have no guarantees that someone did this for you. And KNOW what you are doing! Be careful what you wish for as you just might get it!)

These are just a few of the scams that I see most often. A psychic reading should be pleasurable and insightful. It should be personalized to you and your questions. Not a generalized reading that could apply to anyone.
If you have been scammed, don't let this deter you from psychics all together. There are some truly great psychics out there! Just beware of the common scams!
