"I sense a blockage that prevents your husband from loving you." The client was shocked at this news. Her life seemed to be going well and she was asking the psychic how her husband was doing simply because he was away on one of his regular business trips and had seemed to be coming down with a cold before he left. "Don't worry," said the psychic, "I can remove this curse with a spell so that your husband will love you again. However, you will have to mail me some cash to place on my altar and call me regularly so that I can make sure the spell will work..."
You are lucky to have found yourself on a reputable web-site, however, your path may have led you through some difficult experiences with so-called "psychics" who were more out for your money than eager to help you. If you have been fortunate enough to avoid such an experience, you should still be aware of some of the signs so that you can help a friend or loved-one if they are caught up in a negative experience with a consultant.
The first red flag is if a psychic tells you that you are "cursed." While it is true that there are spell-workers that can both hex and heal, the warning should come to you if the psychic agrees to cure you of the curse in exchange for more time on the phone or additional money in any way. Even if a psychic did sense a curse upon you, he or she would not be the only one able to lift such a thing. In fact, your own prayer for protection would be powerful against such a curse. Always get a second opinion and report that psychic to their administrator if he or she is working for a company.
The second red flag is if a psychic works for a company but asks for money outside of that company's normal operating procedures. For example, if you are calling a psychic network and a psychic asks for your personal contact information, or offers their own telephone number, you should immediately report this for your own safety and for the safety of others who call the line. Likewise, if you have been paying by credit card through the network and the psychic wants your credit card number or for you to send cash or a check directly to him or her, this psychic is working a scam. Even if the psychic offers you an incredible deal, would you want to do business with him or her knowing that the psychic is robbing their network? Be on the lookout for these warning signs, and if a friend or loved one is having an experience with a psychic like this, please refer them [here]!
