There is a growing appetite nationally and within the states to find a means of criminalizing psychics and mediums and those who prey on families of the Missing. Here are some resources and links that will show which law applies to those who receive money in exchange for services that are fraudulent.

These are some pretty standard Consumer Protection laws that have been in place for some time, but are applicable in situations like these where families are in a uniquely vulnerable position and are likely to be fleeced. In other words, there is no more buyer beware here.

Speaking as the grand daughter and great grand daughter of Medicine women, no one who is using metaphysical means to heal or help anyone should be charging. It is disrespectful. If someone wants money tell them NO and walk away.
