Dont be Fooled by Phoney Psychics

I find psychics interesing.  In fact, I used to be addicted to that show where the guy (I think John was his name), would pick people out of the audience and tell them what their deceased family and friends had to say to them.  It’s very interesting, and entertaining, but how can you tell if it’s true?  Find out in this Article by Athena Louise:


Being a psychic, and having worked on line as one for the past several years, it still surprising me how many people fall for the hype and nonsense some of these so-called psychics write about themselves. So here is a guide for anyone that wants to call a psychic.

Understand something. The psychic industry is NOT regulated. There are no rules a psychic has to abide by. There is no test given to see if the person qualifies as a psychic. Anyone with a deck of beginner tarot cards can claim to be a psychic.

If a psychic claims to be an angel sent from heaven to help in your love life, or wax endlessly about how great they are, avoid at all costs. You can look at what others have written about the particular psychic you are interested in calling, just understand some psychics call each other just to give good ratings. The higher the rating, the closer to the front page for their listing.

Never choose a psychic that is part of a group. Every group I have ever seen exchanges information about their callers. Once they see your screen name, they check to see if you called before. If so, they read what the other person has written and voila they start telling you things about yourself without you saying a word.

Be very careful what you tell this stranger. Do not give out more than first names, birthdays and possible city or state where you live. Some people think that talking to a psychic is equivalent to talking to a priest in confessional. It isn’t the same at all. You don’t know if you are speaking with a real psychic, a phony, a criminal, or a nut. If a psychic says he (or she) needs your address for numerology to give you lucky numbers. Hang up. If a psychic knew the winning lottery numbers, that person would play those numbers, not give them out to a stranger for a few bucks.

Too many of these so-called psychics will keep you on the line for as long as possible by agreeing with you and basically telling you what you want to hear. AFAB – anything for a buck – is their motto.

Avoid any psychic that says for a price they can grant your fondest wish, or make the person you care about come back to you. If a psychic tells you something bad is about to happen, but they can help – for a price – hang up.

Never send money to a psychic who asks it be sent via Fedex or Western Union. If one does, a red flag should go up in your mind because this is a scam. These psychics might also tell you a special spell or ‘service’ is needed. They happen to have this service as a special offer and reduced the price for this week only. Bypass the offer.

If psychics charge a lot of money per minute, it does not mean they are good. It means they are greedy. I am not talking about psychics that have their own sites, because they are usually real and you will get your money’s worth. I am talking about the ones that work for on-line companies.

I have heard of psychics offering to be able to grant the caller’s heart’s desire, turn back time, make the caller more attractive to the opposite sex, guarantee a legal issue will be found the caller’s favor, and increase the caller’s financial situation. All for a price. The caller’s financial situation is increased. It gets worse because of the monies spent on this nonsense.

Paying someone for a ‘spell’ so you can get what you want, is ludicrous. If you were meant for this to happen, it would, without any outside help. If you are not achieving what you want, look for an answer as to why not, not an easy ‘fix’ that will not work. True, some do for a very short period of time, but then you will be in the same situation you started in, so why bother?

I hope the above information has been a guide for anyone reading this. Just remember, anyone can claim to have psychic powers, very few actually do.
