This is recent news article about five psychic scams. The reason I’m including it here is to warn you about the general themes of psychic scams. From the outside looking in, it seems absurd that these people fall for these scams, but these criminals know that their clients place a lot of trust in them. They take full advantage, and in the name of helping them, exploit them until there’s nothing left to take.
While you don’t have to worry about Miss Cleo anymore, watch out for anything that makes you pay per minute, even if the first few minutes are free. Psychic readings should have a flat free. You may find yourself on the hook for more than you bargained for.
From these lessons, you should know a few things before going into a session. Even though most psychics are sincere, there are scammers out there who simply don’t care about anything but lining their own pockets.
These stories remind you to use your head.
Know that you’re not on the hook for any more than what you agreed to pay. Most psychics can’t remove bad luck or a curse for you; you have to do the work yourself. Don’t tell a psychic intimate things about yourself. You wouldn’t tell your hairdresser where you hide cash in your house, right? So why would you tell your psychic?
Oh, and NEVER, for any reason, talk to a psychic with the last name Marks or Lee. Trust me on this one.
