Let’s talk about how to spot real psychics. Here are five signs you should watch out for when dealing with someone claiming to be a psychic:
#1. Psychic Asks Leading Questions
A real phone psychic won’t need to ask you a bunch of questions. The only questions a real psychic will ask are your name and your birth date. Anything beyond that, and they’re mining you for enough personal information to make it seem like they have all the answers you need. If a psychic asks for more information than your name and birth date, end the session immediately. You’re dealing with a fake psychic.
#2. Psychic Asks for Sensitive Financial or Personal Information
Fake psychics like to ask personal financial information in the hopes of stealing your identity. In their ruse, they say it’s to help them connect with you. But, don’t be fooled. A real psychic doesn’t need that type of information to connect with you. Under no circumstances should you give out your personal or financial information, and if asked, end the session and move on.
#3. Psychic Asks for More Money to Remove a Curse
This is a scam, and you should end the session immediately if asked for more money to remove a curse. The fake psychics are doomsday sayers preying on those who fear bad news. These con artists know that most people who fear bad news will do anything to make it go away, so they invent “curses” to explain away a person’s bad luck. They take it even further by promising to remove the curse for an additional fee. They will say they removed the curse, but they didn’t. Curses don’t exist.
#4. Psychic Changes Contact Information Regularly
Pay attention to your psychic’s contact information, and notice if he or she changes the information regularly. If you were able to contact your psychic at one number, but it is suddenly out of service, or if their email address constantly changes, you may be dealing with a fake psychic. If a fake psychic is labeled as fraudulent, he or she may just pack up and move their show on the road somewhere else. It helps to report the fraud to the police, if you can.
#5. Psychic Offers Unsolicited Advice
These are the ones who like to approach you in the grocery store or on the side of the road. They usually approach people they see as vulnerable or weak. They come across as genuine and caring, and they tell you they sense you are dealing with some sort of emotional pain but that you will get through it. This tactic makes you feel like they care about you, and they wouldn’t do anything to hurt you, especially if you are going through emotional pain. Once they hook you, they charge higher rates to offer further advice on the matter. If you’re approached in this manner, politely thank them for their insight and walk away.
But, fret not, my friends. There are real, genuine psychics out there, you just have to know where to find them. Remember when I said I had tried all the psychics out there? Well, I’m here to offer my experience, and there are two websites I personally recommend.
