The American Association of Psychics uses the medicine wheel in its logo, so I first thought that this was possibly an association for indigenous Americans. It’s not. What I then realized is that perhaps this book cannot be judged by it’s cover, because it’s cover is really poorly done. This looks like an old geocities site that didn’t disappear with the rest of them. However, this is an active, though smaller, collective of psychics. In order to join this collective, all psychics have to go through a rigorous screening process that includes a criminal background check. Apparently, this is to keep psychics from being scammed. After all, they only accept 1% of all psychics who apply.
And this is not comforting at all. On the join us page, they also write that they ask for a psychic’s social security number and driver‘s license number. First, neither is necessary for a criminal background check, as incarcerations and convictions are a matter of public record, as well as many types of arrests. Second, if you want someone to submit a criminal background check, ask psychics to get one from the FBI or their home state and submit it to you. This is how embassies do it before they confer visas; if it’s good enough for them it’s good enough for Rosemary the Celtic Lady. We are innocent until proven guilty. Even though there may be no laws broken by discriminating against a psychic who has been arrested or acquitted, it’s distasteful to ask a psychic to give you the opportunity to do that. Second, your driver’s license and social security numbers are two of the last things you want to hand a stranger unless you want your identity stolen. So, I’m not comfortable recommending using this network to find psychics because of this unethical means of choosing psychics.
