Trying to cancel the program

I signed up on Sept.1 for $67. Did not like it and send 2 emails on Sept.3 asking for a refund. No answer! I called and was told one has to try it for 30 days in order to get a refund. Still waiting!

Kephra's Free Psychic Reading

This is about a psychic (a bogus one) named Kephra. Here is her website: http://www.reading-psychic.com/ I only post the link because when I Googled "Kephra + psychic", I found two or three with that name. I want you to be able to find the right one. Anyway, I asked a free psychic question and received a response that started out "I was very moved when I saw your question, so I did your reading right away. The first thing I noticed was the fact that you share a birthday with my mother, so I felt an instant connection with you. " I believe there are people with real psychic abilities but most of them are scam artists. You have to be very careful. Research them first so you don't waste your money. I thought the sharing a birthday thing was suspicious so I posted another question under different name, email and birthday. She wrote back with the same form letter saying I shared her mom's birthday. So her mother has more than one birthday? She's a fake.

@Sheena re Chris

Have you ever used Chris Golden? Has anyone? Seems too good to be true.
—Guest Jackie B

@Jackie B / re Chris

No, they are not the same person. Golden has a whole bunch of news stuff about him and the other guy is like some kind of avatar or automated site that I think rips people off.

Disappearing Reviews

I've noticed that this review forum went from over 900 reviews to now only 95. Why is that? There was a lot of useful reviews that are now missing.

Hi, I'm thinking of writing Christopher Golden to reunite me with my ex. Any honest feedback is appreciated. I've read that it is costly, but want to know if it's worth it and how long it took. Thanks in advance.

Psychic Mediums

Absolutely no one can force you to hand over your money to a psychic. Some people are genuinely psychic while most are phonies. If you give your money to a phony and then later come to regret it, you have no one to blame but yourself. No one forced you. You had to have wanted something, like the power to like yourself better, or you were easily fooled into thinking there was a curse against you, in order for fake psychics to hold your attention such that you will give them your money. But if you did, then own it. You were the one who willfully handed it over. You have no one to blame but yourself.

Psychic Jennifer Mesa

I have been spending about $150 per night speaking to the same psychic for a few months now. During that time she has revealed much to me that has come true. Recently a friend of my brother learned about this and became concerned. He said that this psychic is using background searches on me and involving a number of my friends, family members and professional colleagues to help to make sure that her so-called psychic "predictions" come true. In order to gain their full cooperation she has threatened them all with spells to cause them to grow horns on their heads and hair on the palms of their hands. I have asked for a refund, but the disclaimer on her website says there are no refunds. The police have indicated that if I was foolish enough to give her all this money and willfully, there was nothing they could do. The website for the FBI has no area to report this and my study on Google shows that this is technically not a crime. I am not a happy camper right now. I want justice.
