Readers Respond: Avoiding Astrology/Psychic Reading Scams

Responses: 124


Bully! http://www.tara-medium.com/

I requested a free tarot reading. This "person" bombarded me with emails telling me bad things were going to happen unless I paid for the full reading. Any "gifted" person would not behave in such a way! If you want a true psychic, look for Russell Grant!

Online spiritual guidence

Sometimes when you are lost and don't quite trust your conscience, or cannot hear what your heart tells you, and you do belong to organised religion, you still feel you need to understand your existence and seek a meaning with it. Therefore you pose a question to the powers beyond trough an "online-medium". You get the answer and you chew on it. Maybe it gives rise to reflection. If they tell you you are one in a million and they clear their schedule just to care for your special and truly unique spiritual path, then they ask for money. You leave it at that. If you want Clair-Voyance, seek one in real life. Get to see and communicate face to face. Go on seeking but show common sense too.

Norah Scam - Astrology Fraud

a couple friends and I did the free piece and we ALL got EXACTLY the same email back. When I contacted customer service they tried to tell me that I " don't understand my hearts desire" and that Norah does custom readings specifically to my data. Well that is clearly bullcrap - they proved it with the generic email we all got. For the incredible few who felt they got a little out of it - well, if you throw enough generic crap at the wall eventually something is going to stick. It's the law of averages. If you truly want a customized reading - go to a live Astrologer who shows you your physical chart and explains it.

Norah a spambot

I got a free reading from norah, and got the same bollocks about how i'm on the cusp of a great transition period, and how rare that is, and i've been persued by bad luck since I was a child, etc. You might at least imagine that the scammers who run that con would change the messages a bit, have a few other auto-responses. What a bunch of morons.

why do you people believe this stuff????? tara is a scam artist. i have reported her to the bbb.

Norah is totally fake

Hi folks, a while back I did a free reading online with Norah. Well after a few days I started getting emails to tell me that things were going to go badly for me unless I got her to do a "paid" reading so that I could see how to avert disaster. This went on for months, and the emails got more and more ominous, like something really really bad was about to happen. Well nothing bad happened , and basically this is a nasty scare tactic to make people pay for a reading and suck them into being dependent on the fasle information that this "Norah" person provides. By the way I did a trace on the emails, and they are from Asia, hong kong to be precise. I even got this persons ISP. It's a total scam, don't even get a free reading because then you'll get a ton of spam emails telling you something really bad will happen to you, and if you do, don't believe a word because this person/people are just scammers plain and simple.

It blatant scam

Wish I had seen some of this sooner and I did my free reading an thought it was ok but had some questions emailed Norah and support about her questions but got no reply and I should have walked away but in my stupidity I went ahead and now having see your site and others saying the same thing I know I have been had, but I am goind to challenge her on her 30 day money back guarentee as I only got my reading a week ago. The more I read it the more inconsistencies I find. Have requested my money back will see what happens. I have screen shots of every page inculding the payment pages. will see what happens.

—Guest Mike


I received the same free reading and scam about Transit Period etc from "Norah" at Premium Astrology as several other people, telling me that quote " it is a very rare occurrence that I come into contact with an individual who is on the cusp of a personal Transit Period." and but there's bad news too " I sense that there has been some evil pursuing you practically since childhood, and that you've had one problem after another, especially as far as money is concerned. I saw all the anxiety and suffering you've had to put up with, and I saw your present problems too." Sad thing is I believed this because it rang true to me, so I emailed her after making my purchase for a full reading/transit period chart and over a day later I received an email from "Monica" totally unrelated to my query. This company is so fake! Call your bank and get a refund! They have Premium Astrology's number if this one gets changed. Note that I had to call two times to get an answer 1-866-732-9787. Good luck!

Tara Scam-Norah Not

Hi I purchased a reading from both Tara, Gabriella and Norah. The only one with interesting and useful advice was Norah. It is somewhat vague at times but does address some key life events. I only paid 49.00 dollars and am happy with the reading. I think people looking for someone to change their life are just silly. However, if you are just looking for some valuable insight then I recommend Norah. That's my two cents. Cheers, Alex

Not all mediums give false readings, I do it for free and I give out what is channeled to me from Spirit. I agree that some who send things via the email are all the same, so one has to be very careful who they deal with. I cannot tell you the future, but try to help when I can. My daughter keeps getting these emails from Nora, I feel that if they cannot work through and with Spirit then do not get a reading from them. This is my opinion only. Maybe they will not publish this that I have written.

She's An Evil Witch!

I purchased a report and paid $80. It did not resonate with me at all and while i figured I'd just bite the bullet and never make the same mistake again by ordering astrology online, the worst part is, I continued to get unsolicited charges on my credit card. THIS IS A SCAM. She is a terrible person and her team are basically the devil. They will get what's coming to them for their evil scam.
