Psychic Reading Scam Exposed Video

Before diving into it, what is a psychic reading? A psychic reading is a specific attempt to discern information through the use of heightened perceptive abilities; or natural extensions of the basic human senses of sight, sound, touch, taste and instinct.

These natural extensions are claimed to be clairvoyance (vision), clairsentience (feeling), Claircognisance (factual knowing) and Clairaudience (hearing) and the resulting statements made during such an attempt. However, most of the people looking for readings are interested in their love life. Lately, many even consider psychic readings over the phone.

Splitting up with your partner is never an easy thing – and those hurt would do anything to get their loved one back. That's when several people rely on black magic or psychics who claim they will bring the partner back. Many psychics are advertising their "services" online by promising that your lover will be back within days. Down and vulnerable, victims pay hundreds of dollars to scammers who are supposed to perform black magic or read the future.

If the scammers feel there is more room to rip off the victims, they will continuously ask for money, just to "warn off all the evil spirits and bad energies" in the future.

The astrologer case (or numerologist) is just a classier version of the same scam. For example, you might ask them if you should do business with a particular company or person. The reader will tell you that the astrological arrangement of this company or person you wonder about is either negative or positive just by making stuff up. In the numerologist's case, they'll tell you that in the future you have to get rid of certain numbers from your life.


How to avoid the Psychic Reading scam:

When a relationship has ended you are in a very vulnerable situation and very liable to make wrong decisions. Give yourself time to get over it and don't fall into these situations. Some readers and astrologists are better than others. If you really want to try one on, go to those who are recommended by somebody who worked with them before and is happy with the results.
