Readers Respond: Avoiding Astrology/Psychic Reading Scams

Responses: 131

By

Psychic Selena of Los Angeles

I met her in the parking lot after a show at a theater where the Medium named "Fluer" did her show. She asked me for a ride. While we were in my car she said was also a very famous psychic and that if I gave her some money and went back to her motel room with her, she had some tarot cards and she would give me a reading I would never forget. When we got to the motel she asked me to set the money down on the dresser. Then she said to lay down on the bed. I told her I felt uncomfortable with that and she said this is how she works and not to worry becoz she would lay down right next to me. The she told me to close my eyes. What happened next I am too ashamed to say except that it all happened so quickly. Then she asked me for more money to buy cigarettes and then said I had to leave because "Tyrone" was coming over, whom ever that is. I asked her on the way out what about the psychic insight and all she said was I was a very curious and adventurous person. I feel gipped.

Chris The Extraordinary

And NOTHING AN ABSOLUTE SILENCE Iesha, you cannot imagine how your silence weighs on me! Don't see any misplaced pride. This type of attitude is completely unknown to me. But I wonder. I say to myself, 'Chris, what have you done wrong or badly to justify the silence of Iesha ? ». Usually, in the heat of the action and passion I feel for my job, I always capture the interest and attention of those I choose, and know I can help. It is not my doing alone, but the power of my convictions blah blah blah..... This is some of the email I copied and pasted from the email I received from "The extraordinary Chris". I agree with everyone on here, don't let this Chinese/Japanese scam business trick you, I even googled the address from the email, it looks like a dump smh...

Chris

Chris does not do spells. It says so right on his site. He has also published articles which say that spells do not work. So whoever is saying that he charges for spells is a troll.

No such thing as spells

I No Longer believe In spells anymore. How are all these people still able to get costumers I don't know. I have tried Christopher Gordon he talks you into spending 400 and it never works. I have tried Ashra spells and she is also a rip off. The price looks good but then after every spell she talks you out of more money. I have also tried alexandra@ancient-magic.com and another rip off but lucky with that one I was able to get a refund because I filled a claim with a system she uses call plimus. Now my current one is lovespellsbyangel.com Psychic Angel. She will make you do western union or the vanilla reload card. I picked the card. She will tell you to burn the recipients and the card but luckily I took pictures of both. She will make you spend 75 and guarantees that you will get it back if your lover doesn't return within 48 hrs she then tells you to get $400 out to use during the cleansing because you have to have it on you. She THEN says Send Her the money So Her AND Her Siste

Fake Esperanza

I had a reading from Esperanza and she told me that I will go into a lucky period soon and that she can help me not to miss the chances given to me. I paid and she has send me lucky dates and numbers and a tree and lucky mandalon. Well it didn't work and none of the lucky numbers work. So I guess she's just another scam.

Fake Celebrity Psychic Storm Cestavani

Storm thinks of himself as a celebrity. He talked about Psychic Friends Network and his infomercials as if he were the star. He talked about being on Queer as Folk, Madonna videos, Blind Date, Ricky Lake and Oprah. He talked about getting hired on the Young and the Restless. If he were an actor on any of these shows wouldn’t there be an IMDb, The Internet Movie Database profile or even a Wikipedia profile on him? There isn’t because he isn’t an actor or has appeared in anything he claims. There is nothing on the internet that supports his claims to fame except what he posts about himself. He claims he’s writing a book called ―Inner Gold‖ a title that is already out there by Robert Johnson. He claimed to have been booked by Live Nation to do speaking tours.

Storm Cestavani - phony celeb guru

Celebrity Spiritual Advisor He claims to be ―best friends‖ with the head of the Kabbalah Centre. He claims to teach astrology at the New York Centre. He claims to have written the daily Kabbalah Tune up and currently writes the blog for the head of the Centre. He states that he has gone on exclusive trips to Israel with the head of the Centre and Madonna. He alleges the photos of a man he uploaded to his Facebook page are of him. An investigator ran the photos (and those allegedly of him on his other sites) through Mozilla’s TinEye reverse photo tracer. Not a one of the photos are of Cestavani are variable or traceable. If he’s such a celebrity, then why are his photos untraceable to source? He has also stated he’s a rabbi and third in line at the Kabbalah Centre. Yet when asked the address of the Centre, he couldn’t produce it and said he walks to the Centre and when questioned again, he takes a cab. In fact he cannot describe the streets to get there. It's all a big li

Regarding Chris

I used his service doing the chakra work some time back. It was costly but effective. My ex said he just started to feel "sort of raw" and was remembering a lot of the good stuff between us and that made him give me a call. My sister used Chris to and it took longer with her but she got about the same result.
