It can happen to anyone. You spend your hard earned money, only to leave with an empty feeling. Or worse, you get tricked into spending more and more. Have you been the victim of dirty tricks in the psychic/astrology business? Share your story, and spare someone else the heartache!

Hey there, we are talking again and he decided to move back in with me. It's been such a relief. I just had to relax and let it all flow. Thanks for your support. I know it will come together now.

Katherine from Astrology Answers

Looks like I've also been scammed by Katherine's Astrology Answers dot com. I PAID for the "Guide" & 'free' e-books - NEVER received ANYTHING. Waited . . . NOTHING but more advertising letters arrived. I started sending THEM e-mails asking about the materials I paid for and never received. NO RESPONSE. Nothing - (except further ads). I tried calling - no luck. I went on-line to the chat room and finally managed contact w/"customer service." Feedback was short and curt. Told to check my spam - that's it. Although I asked them to check their records & verify if anything was sent, etc. they brushed me off. I then did find some mssgs in spam - BUT NONE had ANY content regarding materials I paid for and inquired over. I sent more e-mails complaining . . . still no response! Cont'd tho to receive new mssgs of MORE wonderful materials & services available to me! THAT - they communicated wonderfully on. Their e-mail ads just made me feel SO 'special.' Their actions? USED & forgotten.

Part 10

This lady is a classic gypsy. She is Romanian, illiterate, does not send her kids to school and has a big sign in her front yard advertising psychic readings. I went in for a $5 palm reading and got talked into doing the $60 Tarot card reading instead. Nothing she told me was right. Then she said I had to give her $200 so that she can pray and meditate in order to cleanse my bad energy with women. She said if I don't do this I will never be able to hold on to a relationship. She also asked me if I'm gay, which I'm not.

@Guest Guest

No, what's very suspicious is you and your constant posts. Several people have shared their letters from Chris and none of them are the same. You are pushing an agenda. Which love spells site are you from and what is your beef with Chris? Is it that he was in Yahoo News several times saying that your love spells do not work?

This man does not give free phone time. However long your reading is he only stay on the phone with you that much. I went to him and just wanted to ask a few question but I ran out of time and I had to pay for another session. I wanted to explain myself and let him know the whole situation first so that he can see what is really going on before I start asking my questions . You shoudl at lease give a few extra minutes.

Part 7

I was soooo close to paying for the Transit Period Guide until I read these bad reviews today about Katherine from Astrology Answers. I have received emails (almost harassing) every two days for two weeks, asking me why I am resisting and still thinking about responding to her offer (always very polite and so endearing). The price has now dropped to $19.00 with strangely enough - three easy payments of $9.00!! That obviously doesn't add up to $19.00!! Also, when I tried to ring the 1800 number (probably USA), it says it is disconnected and when I sent questions to the Chat Line, they were not answered. So the warnings were there. I'm very glad I read Jmak and Mukwah and other's comments. I have been to a clairvoyant and she was extremely accurate. I'd rather see someone in person from now on.

if you are a fool, you will remain one

All these psychics are scams. Girls, ladies, please,don't fall for these schemes. These so called "psychics" are very good psychologists. They will only tell you what you would like to hear. Their stories are immaculate, their emails seem promising and they work really hard for your money - while they are scamming you. Do yourselves a favor, stop handing over your hard-earned money. Give yourelf a nice hair cut, start fresh, and then go out there and get your ex back. After all, these guys exist only because they feed off of naive people.
