How To Spot Psychic Scams
By Steven Wagenheim
As a true psychic, it pains me to no end to see the scams that are constantly perpetrated on the public. It is no wonder that psychics get a bad name. The problem is, how do you tell the true psychics from those who are just after a quick buck? The truth is, it's not very easy. The best psychic cons are very hard to detect because these people know what they're doing and they pray on the fears and desperation of those who need help. However, there are a few glaring signs that the psychic you're about to get involved with is nothing but a con artist. This article is going to reveal the most glaring of these.
The first sign of a con is when you go to have a reading done, and it doesn't matter if it's a Tarot reading, Astrology reading or whatever, and you're given a price quote for the reading and then suddenly towards the end of the reading, the psychic says they see something that will require further interpretation, however to do that, there will be an additional charge. That is the first sure fire sign to say, no thanks, pay for what's been done so far and get out of there quickly. Yes, the information you've just been given is most likely a load of bull, but at least you've saved yourself additional expense.
Another big psychic scam is the phone psychics. I'm sorry to have to tell you this, but no psychic is so good that they can tell you you're future over the phone. A true psychic needs to be in contact with the subject and phone consultation, or whatever you want to call it, is not contact. Also, the person you're speaking to when it comes to these phone sessions, is many times just a hired hand who is reading off a script. So do yourself a favor. If you can't sit face to face with your psychic, don't fall for the pitch, because most likely, that's all it is.
Finally, if you're going to a psychic, take note of the appearance of the establishment and the way the psychic is dressed. If everything looks like something out of a bad B movie, then most likely this person is not a psychic and just a scam artist. When I do a reading, I wear a suit and tie. I don't put on all this fancy garb and I don't have garlic and shrunken heads hanging from the walls. If you see anything that looks cliched, don't fall for it. A legit psychic will not go through all the stereotypical nonsense.
Like I said, it is sometimes hard to pick out the scam artists, but some things are very obvious. Hopefully, these few things that I have mentioned will save you a lot of heartache and money besides.
