    "Bogus psychics" presumes that there are "non-bogus psychics." Discuss.

    I went to a gypsy psychic many years ago. The psychic seemed to be dead on initially. I was so desperate for answers, call me stupid, I went back. The psychic told me that she got a sign that she needed white fluffy down comforters, queen size, 2 of them, to complete my journey. So I bought 2 comforters. Yes, I was an idiot, but I was young AND stupid AND naive. I went back several days later and low and behold, the comforters were boxed up for the UPS man. I bought her gypsy MIL 2 comforters and surprise, surprise, my circumstances did not change. The guy still kept me dumped. LOL

    Reminds me of the funny story of the psychic who convinced this 12 year old girl her family was cursed, and that the girl needed to give (steal) $10,000 worth of her parents gold to the psychic to remove the curse.

    Oh, there are plenty of people who fall for various types of scams. And I do believe that so called "psychics" are a scam. Either for money or for attention or power or whatever.

    A good friend of mine recently got caught up in a "romance scam" - which I had never heard of before. Then I went to ScamSurvivors.com and Romancescammers.org. Wow! People are sending lots of money to scammers!

    There is no such things as psychics!

    A sucker born every minute...,..if only I didn't have integrity, I could be a very rich woman. I'm exceptionally good at doing cold readings. Used to give readings for kicks in college.....

    Those ladies would have been much better off going to a counselor, and it would have cost less. It sounds like they wanted hexes and spells though.

    I don't understand why only this psychic is being shut down and not all of them. They all are either committing a crime or not.
