Guide To Detecting A Fake Psychic Reader

Genuine people who take part in psychic readings have helped people know their future and other things affecting their lives. They simply see things beyond the natural; hence they can be relied on when there is need to.

However, as you can see, the world has entered a different phase altogether. What was originally true psychic reading is now abused by a few individuals who don’t care about the emotional and psychological damages they are causing the victim; thanks to greed which has entered the human race at large.

If you’re interesting in the topic of psychic readings, you already know that there are true psychic readers, and then there are those who call themselves psychic readers when they are not.

Luckily, experience has taught us to separate genuine from the fake. You will be surprised when you continue reading this.

Your star sign or date of birth

Have you come across an online psychic reader who is asking for the date you were born or even your star sign?  You might be surprised that such kind of individuals will look for your background information to use as a guide.

So once you tell them your star or date of birth, they will look it up in the dailies for the day’s astrology readings. They will type it back putting the information in a different way, so it will look like they are supernaturally reading your life.

They will ask your location and age

If they can have details of where you live plus your age, they will definitely gather clues as to what may be going on around you.

The place you live in can say a lot about your social life, education, work class and other life details in general. So the moment they get this information, they will use it as a basis for their readings. And with such, the results will be flawed since each individual is unique in their own right. You cannot have someone making a blanket judgment on you based on environmental factors. So this results in a scam.

More promises

Fake people will promise that they can bring back your lost lover by way of spells, candles, etc. But realize that these things are designed to inflate your budget.

If they tell you that you have some form of curse, or that your family and friends have been cursed, this is a sure sign that you’ve found people who abuse psychic readings for personal gains. These people want to use the power of fear, directing it to the people you really cherish. They do this to make money off your pocket.

White lies

Another sign that you’re facing a fraudulent psychic is when they tell you they are internationally recognized, and that they’ve served a few Hollywood stars. The fact is, if they were this famous, your family or friends would have heard about them. But now it looks like they only have a website and that’s it, no traces of them elsewhere. This should raise a red flag.

When they refuse to be asked questions

Beware of people who refrain from being asked questions that you alone know the answer to. If they are real, they should be able to do a general reading first. They should be able to know your past, present and future with some great depth of knowledge that only you or the people around you are aware of. This is where psychic reading gets interesting.


Of course you should use a combination of the five points above to ascertain whether or not they are genuine. Also, you should trust the direction where your instinct is taking you.


The 4 Most Common Psychic Reading Scams

There are different kinds of psychic scams. You should do the best you can to avoid these and protect yourself. The psychic and medium industry is very unique in its own way, so keep these 4 things in mind when visiting a psychic.

#1 Spells and bad luck curses

In this scam, the psychics tell you that they sense a dark presence around you. They can ask you questions to find out who you think may be involved. They will tell you that this curse is the main reason why you are having so many problems in your life.

The psychic convinces you and would promise to take off that bad luck by asking a large amount of fee. They might also offer some of their products for sell. These sessions may continue and cost you a lot of money.

#2 Cures for Illnesses

Some fake psychics promise curing 100% sickness by charging a huge fee. It is unethical to guarantee 100% cure. Avoid these at all cost. Try to be as pragmatic and practical as possible, there are things that humans just can’t do.

#3 Email Scams

One email scam is that you pay for a reading but only get a vague reading. The reading is so general that it might apply to anyone. The second one is an email message that tells you that you have an important message from a deceased member of your family. This will grab your attention and later you will have to pay them to get the complete message.

#4 Good Fortune

In this type of scam, the psychic tells you that he or she can cast a spell so that you have good fortune or true love. The psychic makes promises like finding true love, making your ex come back, etc. A lot of people easily fall into these scams.

You need to protect yourself from these scams. So make sure you choose a reader who has a good reputation… Avoid those who say they’re gurus or “the best” with no references at all of their work. Also, make sure you’re careful with cheap reading, they can end up being scams, and you waste all your money. And please, do not share your credit card and social security number. We’ve seen this again and again, where people are promised the world, and end up getting scammed big time.

There are many gifted and legitimate psychics around you. All you need to do is find them and get readings that can change your life. If you need more help and ideas on how to prevent these scams, check out this great infographic below.

5 Characteristics of Smart Psychic Clients

Clients sometimes interfere with their readings either intentionally or unintentionally. The quality of psychic reading depends on the reader and the client. A smart client doesn’t waste any time and gets the best out of the readings. Here are some important characteristics of smart psychic clients:

#1 Ask Your Psychic Questions

Ask some questions; it helps to feel you relaxed and so it is easier for a psychic to get a proper reading. Psychics work like a doctor. They try to diagnose your problems with your help. If you visit a doctor and don’t speak, how will the doctor know about your problem? Same is the case of psychics. Psychics are not mind readers. Unless the clients ask questions, the psychics won’t be able to give a proper reading.

#2 Open Up Your Mind

This way you can accept any answer that the psychic provides. So, have an open mind so that you can get a clear reading.

#3 Let your psychic speak14808680r

Some clients talk too much, not giving enough floor for the psychic to speak. You need to give the psychic opportunity to explain their interpretations about your life. You could really learn some fascinating things about yourself.

#4 Don’t Lie To Your Psychic

Lying is a waste of time for both the psychic and yourself. Lying won’t give you proper results. Lying tells that you don’t trust the psychic reader and that you are not prepared to get answers about your life.

#5 Relax during the session

Just relax. Listen more than talk. This will help you get a very good reading about yourself and the psychic will also be able to interpret the messages she gets properly.

These simple guidelines will make you a smarter client and help you get the help you need from psychic reading.
