Is Sara Freder a real psychic or fake?

26 Fake Psychics

Many online psychic ads offer free but bogus horoscopes or tarot readings which send the same message to everyone who asks. Usually these are very long messages trying to sell you high-priced "clairvoyant" or "psychic" services, or a "second reading." So far I've found misleading these online entities (click the links to read my investigations):

    1. Norah (out of business due to thousands of online complaints)
    2. Jenna (out of business due to thousands of online complaints)
    3. Gabriella (the first fake psychic our reviews drummed out of business!)
    4. Tara
    5. Zoradamus (also calling herself "N. Zora") (That website won't open anymore.)
    6. Sylvia Browne (the late TV psychic and founder of SpiritNow.com and AskNow.com)
    7. "Pasqualina" went out of business. We hope you didn't have a contract for her psychic readings.
    8. George Tupak (As of January 2017, he's "on shamanic retreat," meaning "out of business.")
    9. Sara Freder (run by the same company as "Pasqualina")
    10. Diana-Numerologist
    11. Julia-Clairvoyance
    12. "Eric McCallum" and Numerologysecret.com
    13. "Aiden Powers" and Authenticnumerology.com
    14. "Katherine" and AstrologyAnswers.com ("Katherine" became "Adrian Ross Duncan," a real astrologer paid to allow the site to use his name.)
    15. "Barbara" and Astro-readings.com
    16. "Arabella," Spell-caster, U.K.
    17. The Extraordinary Chris
    18. Valentina Tarot
    19. Maria Medium
    20. Padre
    21. Adriana
    22. Victoria
    23. Angela (run by the same company as "Padre")
    24. Claire
    25. Celeste
    26. Diana Rose

Click on the names with links to find my full investigations of their services. When I looked for proof of their claims, such as being "a fourth-generation clairvoyant" or "winning a Psychic of the Year Award," finding no proofs I checked for Internet complaints. So should you. If you find many bitter complaints, all the evidence, starting with the fake horoscope, points to fakery overall.

"Tara" told me I'd won a lottery, and that she could prove it -- amazing, considering I didn't even play!

"Eric McCallum" predicts for everyone a "rare" and lucky "Temporal Pinnacle" when there is no such thing.

Almost always, "psychics" who use a first name only are fake. Using a first name only thwarts research and investigation.

"Tara Medium" is a Model

They Aren't Real and Neither are Their Readings

Ways to tell fake psychics by their photos: Psychic frauds know that you are suspicious, so there's been a trend to use plain middle-aged models in normal clothing, but don't be fooled. Google them all. Laugh at the ones wearing turbans, robes, glitter, or Goth, if they have perfect hair and skin, if their photos are oversized (sure sign of a fake!), or if they have unusually vivid eye color ("Zoradamus" had irises of an unnatural blue).

The names and faces of these "psychics" are fronts for businesses that rake in millions by misleading people. They do not give customized, individualized psychic readings. Their products are "canned," or in the case of Sylvia Browne, mere guesses, almost always cruelly wrong. This is tragic for desperate people who want online psychics to tell them winning lottery numbers or explain a child's death.

Even if you are troubled or frantic, stop and think. Do you really believe "Zoradamus" is her real name, that she is a prophet who descends from a 16th-century soothsayer, has helped scores of people win big lottery and casino money, that she secretly advises top world businessmen, cures illness by phone and speaks seven languages? If somebody sat next to you on a plane or bus and told you all that, you would think they were insane. Why would you believe it when you read it online?

About Real Psychics

Real psychics are extremely rare, maybe one in ten million, and not all of them want to go into business. Real psychics do not have to advertise, nor do they have hotlines. They build a regular local or regional clientele through word of mouth. Maybe they could go online and invite the whole Internet to get a free reading from them 24/7/365, but that would be a terrible overload for one person, don't you think?

You will never find a real psychic by phone or online. What they say to you will be either very generalized or made up as they ask you questions and you answer. To find a real psychic, ask everyone you know; it might be a hundred miles away, but somebody knows one. Then meet in person and judge for yourself whether this psychic is real.

Real psychics sometimes "do" astrology or Tarot readings or use those as a tool, but astrology and Tarot are not psychic. Astrology and Tarot require extensive education and training. By contrast, real psychics have a gift. They do not need training and mentoring. They probably have unlisted phone numbers. They might very well be miserable with their gift and wish they did not have it.

It works the other way, too: Real, trustworthy astrologers do not claim to be psychics. Astrologers and psychics have nothing in common. Misleading ads for "clairvoyant horoscopes" bet that most people don't know this.

Even real psychics, because they are human, are never 100 percent right, and not every question has an answer.

Still Think You Need a Psychic Reading?

First, Google the name of the psychic or company. Do NOT pay money or call a number if you find complaints. Fake psychics are big business. Needy, suffering people are their prey. The more they advertise, the more fake they are.

My opinion about psychic readings done "remotely" by phone or email is that electronic energy fields and the pressure on both the reader and the caller greatly interfere with the clarity of a psychic transaction.

Local psychics have websites so people can find them or book a reading, so you can try that, but I have been to three local psychics and was disappointed. One struggled along, getting everything wrong, and then declared me "hard to read." So it was my fault!

The other did a move that is classic fake! Very often, a fake psychic will tell you that someone important in your life has the initial "R." Every one of us has that, whether it's Robert our boss or Rover our dog, or a neighbor or lawyer with that initial. To read other things fake psychics typically say, see this article.

A friend I'll call Sarah went to a psychic, although it was 70 miles outside of the city and its price was very high. The psychic was a plain-faced, working-class woman who lived with her parents in a small house and met clients in the living room. When Sarah came in, the psychic said she saw an orange aura and said, "You're anticipating something," and asked, "Who's George?" Sarah had just had a first date with a man named George. That was probably much like the experience you will have if you find a real psychic.

In my opinion your best bet for quick customized information and guidance is a local Tarot card reader with a good reputation, one you meet in person. Ask around at natural-foods stores, coffeehouses, spas, and hotels. A real Tarot reader is a combination counselor and diviner, and an ethical one will be happy to give you references. The price will be reasonable.

What do you know about Sophia and Maria Loren

It's hilarious how many free tarot card reading adds there are lol

Marie Flint from Jacksonville, FL USA on September 19, 2017:

Wow, Sylvia, you are one tough investigator!

Frankly, I believe everyone has at least some psychic ability. For example, sensing who is calling you before the phone rings. "I was just thinking of you!"

I listen to channeled messages on YouTube. I find many comforting. I usually enjoy listening before sleep, but I can also do without them.

Psychics don't predict any future; they can only listen and advise from their own perception. Sometimes an outside, second opinion can be helpful, especially when you've allowed yourself to be caught up in your own drama.

Paying for a reading in advance is like throwing money out the window. Payment should only be rendered if Spirit is right. And who can say how much a reading is worth, anyway?

The best way to "read" is to go within, meditate, and breathe. Write the problem down if you must. Paint or draw. Realize you are the creator of your own reality!


Sylvia Sky (author) from USA on August 31, 2017:

Yes, kenngdeli. Anyone who offers an initial "free reading" on the Internet, to the whole Internet, is not real.

kenngdeli on August 17, 2017:

May I ask if this is a scam?


anyone has try before?

Wolflover63 from Michigan on April 25, 2017:

I was wondering if this person is a real psychic or is she fake? Her name is Bethea and email: Bethea@myhealthweatlhandhappiness.com

Could someone let me know please and thank you?

Peadar on December 24, 2016:

Good article that will hopefully save a lot of people wasting their money. 1 in 10 million estimate is probably accurate for people with clairvoyance ability.

If you want to help with your own futures take up meditation and mindfulness, this will allow you to develop your own innate abilities and natural instincts. Believe in yourself. You don't need these online 'psychics' to affirm your strengths.

About half my family are quite psychic in various ways. A real psychic would not try to exort money from vulnerable people using this method. A genuine psychic will often avoid publicity of any kind.

jusp0426 on November 12, 2016:

My email reply to CECILIA


I'm confused about your fees. It says one time only fee of $9. When I look at the fees that need to be selected it shows $9 month/every month. Not to mention, the selection already prompted was at the $79 special offer which I almost paid for.

Your website has no contact number for any issues related to the service provided. Weather you are really trying to help someone, it's a disservice to manipulate customers in total costs.

SCAM or No SCAM with many websites they have in the internet to make money is pretty sneaky. The lives of these website SCAMMERS maybe working out for sometime taking money from people, but never last as long as they think it would be. That is why there are so many SCAMS just to make a buck.

This is my reading for whoever reads this.

Jane on July 13, 2016:

Hi, is Sophia Loren a reliable tarot prophet?

Maggie!!! on March 25, 2016:

Hi thanks sylva thanks for all ur information on these so called mediums and what everelse they call themselves, I asked for a free reading from Tara just to see what she would say, well she promised me everything but I knew she was a FAKE straight away, coz she said my star sign was virgo going by my d.o.b but my bday is in January and I'm a Capricorn, how stupid do she think we are that we dont no our own star signs!!! WHAT D HELL LIKE!!! and I bet I'm not d only 1who's star sign she got wrong, if anyone goes on her site just check to c what star sign she puts u down as, u mite b surprised!!!!!!

Rhonda Wentz from USA on February 22, 2016:

Thank you.

Here is the link to the "15 Things That Fake Psychics Say"


An experienced palm reader can tell you a lot, but he or she has to have been doing it for many years. You cannot read your own palm, not even with an instruction book.

Rhonda Wentz from USA on February 20, 2016:

Thank you for this great article. I would love to read the article about things fake psychics say. But, sadly, the link is broken. Tell me please Sylvia, what do you think of palm-reading?

Nilesh on February 10, 2016:

They say that nothing significant can be achieved without hardwork. The reason you are suffering because of your past Karmas or past actions. In testing times one should turn towards gods & not such stupid padre. Always pray to your esteem god. I would also add apart from padre there are name such as maria the medium, Gabriel, aasha, aalisha, tara. Internet is full of such BS. I have read somewhere on internet that this is computer generated canned responses & some people fall for it. Pls add more name if you have any. So people become aware & stay away from such stupidity.

Sylvia Sky (author) from USA on February 10, 2016:

I don't know those texts and can't comment except to say I think those are less occult than they are about "positive attitude."

dansp on February 09, 2016:

Hi Sylvia I know this page is not only for answering queries on psychics or occult related issues.Afterall we looked them up in the hope of improving our personal lifestyles.What if I were to say I located a couple of manifesting self-help programs by the names of The Law of Attraction 'ORIGIN' - Intention Point'(orchestrated by Katherine Hurst) and Mastering You Inner Game by Dr. Robert Anthony.Do you know which is legitimate and effective? I am having a hard time choosing between the two(provided they are legit,of course.


Sylvia Sky (author) from USA on February 07, 2016:

Diana is FAKE. She's a creation of the French company responsible for fakes such as Jenna. Any one-name psychic or astrologer who provides "free" initial readings is fake. Read the small print at the home page's bottom: "The information provided on starrequest.com, and in any reports, emails, ebooks, or other materials you might receive from starrequest.com is for entertainment purposes only."

dansp on February 06, 2016:

Is Diana@astrologicalcoach.com legitimate or fake?

Googled her thrice on google and she passed with flying colors(81%!)


Sylvia Sky (author) from USA on February 03, 2016:

Adrian-Psychic's website actually and openly says: "The designation "ADRIAN" is a commercial and fantasy designation and "www.adrian-psychic.com" is also a commercial and fantasy title of a technical nature. " That means "fake." Padre is fake. Victory, I can't find. But I would bet she's fake because one-name psychics are fake.

Sylvia Sky (author) from USA on October 31, 2015:

Online psychics are all scams no matter what their names. It's a fast and easy way to make money from vulnerable people.

Anonymous on October 30, 2015:

You might want to try these ones too. Laura-clairvoyance and Laetizia. I've had spam emails from both, two, in fact, from Laetizia.

samantha nanda on October 03, 2015:

Is astro-psychic-tarot.com real or fake? The Adriana you listed that is fake, she is a clairvoyance, right. I believe I had a reading from her and she was telling me many awful things about my future love life. Now i know all these people are fake. Its like someone pulled a big prank on me. Thank God, i did not order any of their things.

Sylvia Sky (author) from USA on September 23, 2015:

Sorry, but I don't have time to look up individual psychics on call. If in doubt, DO NOT USE THE PSYCHIC.

Mary on September 23, 2015:

thank you. What about Sophia Loren?

Sylvia Sky (author) from USA on August 30, 2015:

Diana R with that address is fake.

Sylvia Sky (author) from USA on August 12, 2015:

I will have to take some time to look into Fleur, but I'll answer that when I do.

Herb on August 11, 2015:

I would like to know if medium Fluer is real or fake

Sylvia Sky (author) from USA on July 15, 2015:

Yes, Bethea is fake. Here is the link to my Bethea article: https://discover.hubpages.com/religion-philosophy/...

Herb on July 07, 2015:

I would like to know if Bethea is fake

Anil on July 06, 2015:

Hi I have tried Jenna. The person is also a scam. I connected first with the person in 2007 and continued till 2012. Hope he / she has reformed now :-)

At least, those in UK can now actually DO SOMETHING positive about these thieves. . . .


Odette on November 08, 2014:

Great article! I really enjoyed reading it. I know this is an old article but I was wondering if anyone else is getting daily, vaguely threatening messages from Maria Medium? I clicked on a link just to read my horoscope some time last year and it said I could get it emailed to me. So I gave my email address. Ever since I get daily, or at least 4 or 5 times weekly, these absolutely stupid emails from this Maria one, telling me basically that my life depends upon some weird ritual thing she has to do to get rid of some evil source stopping me from being loved, happy and wealthy... bla bla bla... She really covers her bases I guess LOL Well folks, I'm happy as a clam, in a wonderful relationship and couldn't give a monkeys about money at all nor have I ever really been that money minded. I'm not wealthy but I'm not starving either... More money more problems in my opinion. Her latest email is even bringing the Dalai Lama into it! The absolute cheek of it!! I suppose a year of being ignored by me has gotten Maria acting a little cray cray... LOL! Apparently, her friend in Tibet, a Grand Master of such and such, invited her over for a spot of tea and proceeded to have a seizure or fit of some kind, followed by a graphic vision of the Dalai Lama appearing before him, with a message to tell me specifically, to let Maria do this magic spell crap so I could win loads of money on 3 "key dates" because I deserve it. Oh and then he levitated in front of her (because the Dalai Lama apparition wasn't crazy enough apparently). I'm no expert but I reckon the Dalai Lama would have more pressing matters to attend to besides appearing to the fictional friends of Maria LOL. Also he isn't dead so her little tale is a bit redundant, unless he has teleporting abilities as well as divine wisdom. And if I do ever get the chance to meet the Dalai Lama, I would be so disappointed if his message to me was about something as vulgar as money. I would like to imagine his words of wisdom being more to do with inner peace or enlightenment. Anyway I'm going on a bit here but I wanted to say what struck me as odd was the mention of the Dalai Lama. This is odd under normal circumstances, but more so to me as I had recently started liking some of his Holiness' posts on Facebook and following some of his teachings and stuff online. Could it be that Maria, or whatever corporate money machine spat her out, did a little internet search of my name and saw my Facebook habits? Paranoia maybe but I wouldn't put anything past these people. I can see how people could be taken in by it all while going through hardship. That's when desperation makes you lose all logic and reasoning so Maria's vague meaningless threats become meaningful to a person in that situation. They provide a REASON for your strife. An answer for your suffering. It takes the lowest of the low, the crème de la crème of scum, to wear a good Samaritan mask whilst preying mercilessly on the insecurities and vulnerability of good decent people going through tough times. An ordinary criminal will pick your pocket. These fake psychics take money in a more sophisticated style than that and yet to me seem so much more repulsive. Rant over! :)

TM on October 31, 2014:

Wow what an idiot I am. This has been going on for months even years. I wish I would of investigated sooner before spending hundreds on Jenna Adrian Maria and Tara. I have to admit at times I was skeptical but still went ahead anyway. I am in the process now of collecting all my info and requesting refunds.

Yolande on October 09, 2014:

The Famous Cash, you are the one who seems mentally unwell, you obsess and repeat yourself over & over on something you obviously don't believe in, so why do you keep on coming here?

I appreciate your concern to try prevent people from being scammed but stop being such a generalising, judgemental a-hole already and immediately go seek some urgent help yourself? 0_0

Thank you Sylvia, you have been very helpful.

Greetings from S.A.

cal on September 30, 2014:

what do you think about the medium Maria Clairvoyant

TBD2 on September 09, 2014:


I wrote a dissing of Dennis Jackson a few months ago (above), and I would like to modify my post, but it doesn't appear as though I can, so I'll just ann an addendum.

Without going into the details of what brought me to the place of seeking the services of someone claiming to be psychic, I'd just like to say it's been a long difficult season, and I was desperately looking for any fragments that might help me put my life together.

Some might regard me as pragmatic, having majored in science and worked in a variety of capacities for various corporations. In the past, I've looked at astrology or intuitives as being more for entertainment than guidance. At the same time, remote viewers and psychics working with murder investigators lend credence to the possibility of these talents or gifts. (I know there may be a mole out there who might like to puff up his ego, but comprehensive research supports the existence of these gifts in varying degrees. Check out Joe McMoneagle. There are even consulting firms specializing in remote viewing.)

A-n-y-w-a-y, I was angry with the reading I received. It didn't fit what I was hoping to get in terms of direction; but now that a couple of months have passed, I have to say that there are some unusual correlations between what he discussed and what's transpired, and what appears to be on the calendar.

I was annoyed about two things in particular about the reading. The first thing was, I was annoyed with who showed up, and who didn't. It just seemed as though my parents would be obvious and welcome spirits to step up to the mic. Instead, it was a herpetologist from college. Don't get me wrong, he was a great guy, and I liked him a great deal. (He'd be great to meet for coffee, but I seem to recall him as a tea drinker.) He just seemed like an obscure visitor.

Two months later, he may have been the right person for me have connected with for the changes ahead. There are several reasons for this, which I won't go into, but I would actually welcome him on my team for the transitions ahead. I trust his character.

The second thing I was annoyed about was this long discussion about twin flames. I'd never heard of it prior to visiting their site, and while I find interest in almost anything, it seemed pretty frivolous and tangential at the time; but not it may be quite relevant.

In conclusion, I may have been unduly harsh regarding Dennis and Alice Jackson. I understand these things may not be as clear and concise as we might like, but I may have gotten what I needed, even though that's not necessarily what I was looking for or wanted at the time.

Faith hope and love on June 16, 2014:

Hi all :)

Very interesting thread!!!

I do believe there are true and honest people out there with special psychic powers, but not more powerfull then ones 'OWN MIND" we all have intuition ...

It seems that in today's world we are all getting trapped by the 'inter NET' we need more LOVE toward one another and faith toward what we HOPE for!

...word of mouth and a friendly honest face to talk to and caring enough to listen to you!

Thanks again for this 'thread' sylvia..,

Sylvia Sky (author) from USA on June 16, 2014:

Dear Innocent: Aiden Powers is a clone of Eric McCallum and he is fake. Barbara is fake.

scott butler on June 12, 2014:

Sorry misspelt lol she rang me up 2 years ago. Not ( rang me up in years saying) my mum one aunty and my grandma have all had weird things happen from out of body experiences when my grandma died on operating table and was bought back to life to my mum dreaming of a truck hitting her dad peter and the next day a truck killed her sister peta ( so not exact but pretty accutate) I also have very good intuition for instance knowing somethings not right, and knowing when someone is a bad person instantly. Everyone has that ability jus some more than others. And if u truly believe ghosts are bullshit go to a grave sight and play with a weegey board guarentee u have a change of heart then lol

scott butler on June 12, 2014:

Famouse cash ur a narrow minded idiot. My mum rang me up in years saying did u have a car crash literally 2 min after it happened. She said to my dad sometgings rong scotts had a car crash so she rang me out of pure intuition. That's one of 3 times shes done crazy things like that. So believe what u want but dont go calling us mentally ill or stupid when u have no idea that's ur rheory an that's all it is.

greeneyedblondie on June 09, 2014:

Do you know if the psychic library website (www.psychiclibrary.com) is a fake or not? It seems very realiable but the psychics on there take readings are money, and it's expensive so I'm not sure.

Innocent on June 08, 2014:

Please assist in helping me find out if Aiden powers or Barbara are real because there is no information on the link you posted. Thanx

TBD2 on June 03, 2014:

They say there is a sucker born every minute. Well, I guess I've had my turn.

I believe there are genuine psychics, mediums, and people with paranormal abilities, I just don't thing Dennis Jackson is one of them. At best, he's self deceived, at worst, he and his spouse are cons. Netflix has a documentary on the Skokie (sp?) Project called Afterlife, and I think Kim Russo may have abilities, and I have worked with Reiki type practitioners during which their energy read was palpable, but I am really embarrassed I spent time and money with the Jacksons, and I wish I had been more confrontational with them about the whole thing during the call, but I was open and trying to make connections. They do send a recording of the session, which is kind of curious, because it kind of highlights their "fishing" techniques. When listening to it after the fact, it was more apparent to me that I had been a fool.

I was more interested in a psychic reading than hearing from the other side. It quickly became apparent that he wasn't hearing clearly, and while I had a list of questions, he basically just talked over me telling me things he wanted to pontificate about in order to let the meter run.

On the medium side, he fished for information and came up less than 50% hits. "Who is Dot or Dorothy?" Well, no one. I'd really have to stretch to connect with anyone with those names. "Who is Henry, Harold, or Hank?" Uh, none of my friends or relations, but there was a remote hit, with one of those names being that of a relative of my spouse whom I never met. "Well, he thanks you for ..." "There is a maternal energy, has your mom crossed over?" Yes, but apparently she didn't have anything to say; so they stay away from anything close which would get them in trouble. (On their site, it says the spirits start to line up after you book the session, but apparently anyone significant was late to hear the call.) After booking the call, I pondered who might come through. I really haven't lost many people in my life that I am aware of. Both of my parents are gone, and I have heard of three distant others through social media or the grapevine. He may have had one hit on one of these distant relationships, but it just seems to me that anyone really wanting to contact me, would have been a close relationship, and would bustle up to the mic, so to speak. Pathetically, I nearly internalized the fact that no one of significance to me was interested in communicating. If I managed to make some kind of connection, Alice (who is there to support "grounding energy") would chime in with an "Oh-h-h-oh, that makes sense" almost as a reinforcing sound affect.

He asked if I was interested in soul twin (about which, he wrote a book). I foolishly replied that I'd been interested in twins in which one was reabsorbed in utero, but that was it. He seemed to think that it was significant for anyone interested in soul twins, and he burned up a lot of time talking about it. Heck, I saw a National Geographic documentary on twins and though some of the scientific implications were interesting, but I am not a twin, and I am not looking for a soul mate. Towards the end of the call, he returned to the topic, perhaps hoping to plant the idea and encourage the sale of the book.

I had a list of about twenty questions. On their site, they say the questions usually don't need to be asked and will be answered in the course of the reading. Virtually nothing got answered on the list. About half way through, Alice mentioned I had a list, and I generally shared a dilemma about my health. He offered some general advice about eating healthy and staying away from folks with "negative energy", even if it meant separating myself from my family for a while, perhaps even for a short monastic retreat.

Alice is an artist, and she provides abstract drawings during the reading based on colors based on birthstones, which in turn, are associated with months. She'll ask whether there is any significance to a particular month in terms of a birthday, anniversary, or someone's passing. Let's face it, chances are you know someone related to something happening during a couple of months a year. Her artwork is kind of nice though. Perhaps it will be worth something when she crosses over.

I think people contact psychics out of desperation or perhaps for light hearted entertainment. It is sad that people get taken advantage of when they need guidance the most. Best case scenario, they receive innocuous advice; but if someone is open and desperate, they may strain to find application to anything offered and abandon reason in the process. Or, they may get distracted by the negative projections or suggestions. Fortunately, I only abandoned reason for a few hours (before when booking, during, and afterwards while reviewing the show). I think any non-alcoholic will find better counsel in a bar.

FamousCash, you have already made this post.

TheFamousCash on March 29, 2014:

Are you serious?

ANYONE claiming to be psychic is in ine, or both, of only two states.



Sylvia Sky (author) from USA on March 25, 2014:

There are no real psychics online. Real psychics do not need to advertise. Real psychics are busy with clients who heard about them through word of mouth. Asking your friends and neighbors is the best way to locate one.

hi sylvia i want to know if AIDEN POWERS IS REAL OR FAKE

Sylvia Sky (author) from USA on January 14, 2014:

Thank you, Wayne, for letting us in on Tupak's free reading. I'm so glad Tupak predicts for you that a million or two or three million dollars will soon be in your bank account!

Wayne Costello on January 13, 2014:

I got this from Tupak

I am a mediator between two worlds, two existences, between past and future, and I am convinced a great arrival is coming.

For Fifteen Years now, I’ve studied the REAL MAYAN PREDICTIONS: I’ve finally deciphered and understood them. The Result is SHOCKING, and it’s about to turn your life upside down, Wayne.

Because I know a Great Event is coming, I thought I should write to you immediately. If you read on carefully, you’ll understand why.

At stake are a Unique Opportunity – a truly Unique Opportunity – and an immense Fortune. You are going to have to make THE DECISION OF YOUR LIFE!


Surely you heard all the talk concerning the famous prediction for 21 December 2012. Fools thought this date would bring about the end of days and the disappearance of life on earth!

However, I’ve been studying this question with great care for almost fifteen years now; I’ve come to understand how silly that story was, mere pap for bad journalists.

And luckily, too! The Truth is far more extraordinary! And that’s all that interests me: the TRUTH. I jump right in and reveal everything to a few hand-picked people. I’ll tell you why later on. So take advantage of what you’re about to read, and most of all, keep it to yourself.

The Prediction foresaw everything. Yes, I said EVERYTHING. All the counters were reset to zero on 21 December 2012. This opportunity is unprecedented in human history for those few people who hold the keys. Because THIS POWER EXTENDS into 2014!!

Yes, Wayne, I am here to tell you: I, Tupak, I pursued my studies on this topic and I discovered that this incredible Astral Configuration will intensify in 2014…

Picture this: thanks to my super-confidential Revelations, and for one day, you could have the right to do absolutely anything you want: have lunch with the artist of your choice, order the most beautiful dream car, smile as you transfer a cool million to your account, or (why not?) two or three millions…

Can you see it? Anything could happen, because you would hold the Secret…

All you’d have to do is read the right page of the right document. Well then, Wayne, this journey of yours to the land of a new, easy life will start in the next 30 days! Yes!

No one on earth has ever been granted such a privilege. And yours won’t last a mere day, but… a whole year!

Yes, one whole year during which you’ll face luck with an ace up your sleeve by knowing all the right answers in advance. Knowing that my Revelations are fully guaranteed, do you understand what an exclusive opportunity you have of being able to take advantage of them right now?

Well, then…

I think you’re well aware of who I am, Wayne: no mere Seer but a Shaman, a facilitator between the world of the living and nature, a bridge between the world’s past and its future, a healer of souls and an interpreter of all things possible.

That’s why I got interested in the famous Mayan calendar and its predictions for 21 December 2012. And that’s how I discovered the truth: far from predicting the end of everything, the Mayan order has dealt everyone a new hand and handed out new keys for a very different future.

This prediction marks the beginning of a new world that started in 2013 but will become even stronger in 2014…

You need only read and use: “To whomsoever can see and dare: to them will the riches of the earth be given, for them will the most fortunate meetings be reserved, and the plenitude of the soul shall sing unto them the praises of a Life they do not yet imagine: to do good if that is their wish, to give if they deserve to, to offer and take everything which they need.” That is what I discovered. That is the source of the true Shamanic Revelations for the entire year 2014 that await you, arms outstretched, if you accept my proposal!

Do you remember that game children love: “let’s pretend I’m…”. Let’s complete the sentence by saying: “let’s pretend I’m really, really rich”.

You can already imagine how it goes on: “I’d buy a really big house, with a park and a swimming pool”; or “I wouldn’t have to prepare meals anymore, or clean the house, or go to work so early in the morning that it’s still dark outside”.

The difference is that you’ll be living your actual life, your “for real” life, not a “pretend” one. It’s an all-new dream life that awaits you, Wayne, as soon as you’ve confirmed you’re interested in this shattering discovery, offered to future Mankind by the mysterious Mayan people.

Years of solitude and research have given me this: I can read into any human being without difficulty. So I know what you’re thinking at this very moment: “Why doesn’t Tupak himself take advantage of this providential manna from heaven?” But the fact is that I do take advantage of it! Throughout my life, I’ve taken advantage of the opportunities that came my way. I got all the money I wanted, mountains of money, simply by always applying the right methods at the right moment. I’m merely offering you the chance to do what I do, nothing more.

The only question you should seriously ask yourself is, “Do I really want to become rich or enjoy an entirely new life in which I can take it easy, safe from any concern?” If your answer is clearly Yes, then go ahead. You’ll get full satisfaction or a full refund!

“But,” some will say, “money isn’t everything in life.” Oh, really? Tell that to someone who has none: no money to see the dentist, no money to pay the GP that might fix them up if they got seriously ill. Tell that to those who can’t pay their gas or electricity bills! You do see what I’m saying, don’t you?

Then there are those who’ll tell you money won’t fix a broken heart or cure loneliness. Don’t listen to such people, Wayne; they are fools and ignoramuses! Everything is connected! Most of the time, it’s the little, everyday difficulties that gnaw away at the healthiest sentimental relationship; it’s also lack of money that prevents you from hanging out with the best “matches” and meeting that one person who was truly meant for you. So far, you’ve chosen nothing; you’ve let life make your choices for you!

Again, lack of money prevents you from looking as good as you could (even though, actually, you don’t really have much to complain about in that department), or going to the best salons, the best stylists, or choosing the clothes that suit you best instead of the cheapest ones available.

Through my “Powerful Shamanic Revelations for 2014”, each key period during which an important decision must be made is clearly indicated. All you need is to know how to read, nothing else! Your mind should already be made up, don’t you think?

I won’t drown you in the kind of shabby predictions you’ll find in all the newspapers so long as you don’t have my “Powerful Shamanic Revelations for 2014”. Everything that was planned for you millennia ago, you won’t find this anywhere else. Here are two examples:

Ah, St Valentine’s Day! All that hoopla, right? And the gifts no one’s offered you in ages. But in 2014, the Revelations inherited from age-old Mayan wisdom tell us something quite astounding. Yes, Wayne, this 2014 Saint Valentine’s Day has quite a surprise in store for you, regardless of what your current matrimonial or sentimental situation is.

When love first appears, we think the world of it: it’s perfect, it’ll last forever, because the one we love obviously has nothing short of perfect! Or at least, that’s what we believe… Alas, life is never that simple. As far as you’re concerned, there is one person, forgotten so long ago that you’ve come to question their very existence or their actual importance for your peace of mind. But what if that person suddenly came back into your life? Sort of a resurrection, you might say. I’m telling you this as gently as possible, so as not to shock you. You’ll soon learn more. And I’m not the one predicting this: I am merely a Facilitator, as I’ve told you before: these are Predictions that already existed long before you and I came to this earth. Do you see what we’re dealing with here? I certainly hope so: your mind is perfectly capable of “forgetting” anything that embarrasses it or has ever

First of all, there are no gods, so stop being so stupid.

Secondly, There is no such thing as a genuine psychic. Think about it; talking to dead people? Even more stupid.

These people should be imprisoned!

Join the campaign to stop these thieves from advertising or performing.

Email your M.P. and request the issue be raised in parliament!

If you believe in nonsense like this, you obviously need urgent help!

Prophet/ there

Brian on October 30, 2013:

Well those comments are very valid but there are online clairvoyants that know their stuff too. You can't tar everyone one with the same brush. I was brought up by a real medium, and being a spiritualist and have a few gifts myself but I never could except the fact that people with a gift or gifts from God could charge money for it.

That gift comes from God and should be grateful they have it, to help people and not to make a profit from it.

I seen fakes myself and rip it up them..lol. And there was a comment here saying that to meet a true medium/clairvoyant etc is to meet them personally. Well that's true in most case's. Face to face is the best.

As you have false profits, you have false mediums/clairvoyants as well.

Karma always finds their path eventually. Money is the root of all evil ? Well you would be supprised how close to the true it is. TC, GB 7

Malibu Saunders on October 16, 2013:

@ Sweetpeagirl:

I, too, consulted with Dennis and Alice Jackson and it was the WORST thing I could have ever done!!! They really didn't care what message they gave me- and I am certain it was a scam. If anyone EVER tells you you were someone famous in a past life, or that you knew someone famous in a past life, IT IS A SCAM. Shame on them. KARMA IS A BITCH.

Sillybella on September 24, 2013:

At certain points in my life when nothing worked out for me, I sought the "help" and advice of psychics. None of their predictions ever came true. None of their "work"/spells ever worked. It's true that a real psychic can't be found online and I can prove it by my receipts for stupidly paying all these frauds online whose predictions and readings never came true.

The worst and most recent experience was this - not only did I spend hundreds of dollars each time I paid this psychic known by the following names:




Christian Gifted Psychics/Holy Witches

Reverend Prophetess Lady Of Wisdom

Christian Prophetess

The Prophet Of The Christ

During online payments, another name showed up - DDesire or Desiree which she never uses in correspondence or in her online marketing.

I also got abused (several times when I asked why nothing had happened after her "work" and "blessings") and in her last email to me, she's told me she has reversed the spells I paid for and "re-cursed" me! This is from someone who claims on her website:

“She heals by using Christ’s Jesus(God’s) Energy”

“She believes in God and she will do her utmost to make sure that each of you have received the help that you are searching for”

Don't get sucked in like I did. I was vulnerable - lonely, depressed, with financial problems and had nobody to turn to. If you're reading this and you're in this position, don't turn to online psychics because they are all frauds and scammers who just steal from you and worst one of all, this "Lady of Wisdom" who will rob you AND abuse you.

"you might want to add to your list of Psychic scammers Isadora Moss, located in Pennsylvania; Mary Estella Marks, Nora Mitchell and Steve Mitchell from Blair Witches; and Anna Kingston.

Sorry I meant to add it is on the mail on line story "blonde psychic duped ex racing driver "posted this Wednesday. It will be in all the newspapers in England over the next days but the particular photo stands out well.

James Gotobed on May 15, 2013:

Sylvia Hi, please check out the photo of so called psychic Tracie Long as she left court on Tuesday early, after failing to prove her lies and accusations. It is almost evil and quite scary for someone supposed to be so spiritual and kind.

TheFamousCash on May 05, 2013:

History occurred; therefore exists. Whether you believe some of the records is a matter of judgment.

Psychics do not; never have and never can. Therefore believing in something which does not exist is, to say the least, absurd!

Only a person unable to think clearly could believe in such nonsense!

Sylvia Sky (author) from USA on May 03, 2013:

Point taken, but that is your opinion. History does not exist, and yet we believe in it.

TheFamousCash on May 03, 2013:

Someone claiming to be an astrologer is just as fake as a clairvoyant. Both utter nonsense of course!. Anyone believing the Tarot con artists is probably the most naïve of all. A deck of cards can be "read"? So funny, it defies further comment.

The important thing to remember is, if something does not exist, how can you believe in it? Simple. So you can believe in psychic abilities, horoscopes, religion, tarot card readings, rune reading, fortune telling, ghosts, spirits, angels, cherubim, seraphim, goblins, fairies, ghouls, werewolves, demons, devils, witchcraft, paranormal, poltergeists, spooks, kelpies, bogeymen, gnomes, gremlins, kobolds, leprechauns, mermaids, pixies, supernatural, succubi or zombies if you want. I don't care. I just feel you should know none exist so anyone telling you otherwise is A CON ARTIST and/or MENTALLY UNWELL.

Sylvia Sky (author) from USA on May 03, 2013:

Maria-Medium is fake. Every online psychic or clairvoyant who advertises is fake. Real psychics don't need to advertise. They have all the customers they can handle through word of mouth.

I suggest instead that you contact a certified astrologer or professional Tarot reader who will give you references you can check out before buying readings, and whom you can meet in person. Professionals who have studied and practiced these arts for years will, of course, charge professional rates. Astrology and Tarot are NOT "psychic". They are learned. Anyone can learn them if they are willing to spend years in study and practice.

I don't agree with TheFamousCash that there is no such thing as clairvoyance but I do not know of any true clairvoyants, anywhere.

Meet in person, if possible.

TheFamousCash on May 03, 2013:

There a THOUSANDS of people claiming to be clairvoyant. This Maria person can be no different from every clairvoyant there's ever been. A CON ARTIST and/or MENTALLY UNWELL.

It's really not difficult. If it is a fact that something does not exist, obviously anyone claiming it exists falls into one, or both of the categories.

The name is not important, Psychic Sally, Derek Acorah, Maria, et cetera; naturally ALL are fake.

adriaan on May 03, 2013:

Hi there I just want to know if you know anything about maria clairvoyant fortune teller?

TheFamousCash on April 22, 2013:

Yes, I agree, obviously, ANY clairvoyant is evil. However, your comment, "We create reality with our thoughts so create what you want" does not make sense. JOIN THE CAMPAIGN to rid the world of these thieves! Email your member of parliament (or rep) to amend the ambiguous laws which permit the con artist to take advantage of the feeble-minded and vulnerable!

All people how ask for money that say they have clairvoyance are horrible scammers. We create reality with our thoughts so create what you want.

There is no need to try to prove or disprove if someone is psychic.

ANYONE claiming to receive messages rom the dead or ANY psychic can only be one, or both, of only two states.

1) A con artist.

2) Mentally ill.

There is nothing to discuss!

No one can communicate with something which does not exist!

Think about it !

James Gotobed on April 13, 2013:

Yes Sylvia, I knew her 30 years ago and went to see her for some advice after I found out she was a psychic now. That is ever since someone bought her a pack of tarot cards about 7 years ago. Her first reading told me that my wife of 25 years was having an affair and was a dark shadow following me about, each reading by her over the next weeks confirmed this and the fact that we were destined to get wed by Christmas 2012. She wanted for nothing over the next 8 months during wich I divorced, sold everything (about 100 thousand pounds worth of items) and put my house up for sale. I rented a ranch she liked from October and she was due to move and everything was going well. Then one Sunday at the end of October she came in after an all day event, to the dinner she had asked me to cook her. On arriving her first words were that the SWA were chasing her for money for the second part of a course she was doing(I had already paid the first £200 for her , and done most of the course work) I replied that as the money I had gathered was running low I couldn't pay it for her and I might have to take my house off the market. She simply got up and walked out and wouldn't let me contact her any further. I already knew she had been married at least three times before and engaged numerous times as well, and was fully aware of some of her shocking past she and her family had revealed, so I know it is all my own fault. One of the ploys she did use during the year was once to throw me out of the flat we were staying simply for not agreeing about a trivial matter, when I returned back to my now empty home with wife and son no gone, she sent me a text that I still have saying how she had just lost a pregnancy due to the stress I gave her and " have a nice life , there's a lovely memory for you to be left with !" I immediately and very upset went straight back to comfort her. Tracie always claimed that all of her past relationships had ended due to her being abused by her partners. I have since found out that she left her last partner in hospital as well. The sad closing fact of this is that if the law in UK changes, Tracie will be one of the people chosen to give the mandatory course, all psychics will need to continue reading. (She currently teaches tarot to small regular classes but cannot read reversed meaning cards herself) but as she always said "it's the easiest money I have ever made and if anyone spoils it for me, that's their lot!" I know she mention this one as one day in June I think she actually asked me to physically assault a fellow medium, Paul Gentry who she claimed had copied one of her ideas, I of course refused..and suffered for that one. Anyway thank you for reading my plight, I know there is nothing I can do but it's nice to find someone who is genuinely interested Regards Jim

cappagh from Ireland on April 13, 2013:

I have been in touch with a few of them. I gave the name of a dear friend who had passed away and 3 years later I am still getting emails telling me all the great things like love wealth etc etc that are coming my way. All I have to do is pay for a reading.She still sees great things in her trances about me and it is vital that I order her complete reading. What a joke they are

Sylvia Sky (author) from USA on April 13, 2013:

They psychic said that you and she were destined to be married and you believed her? Am I understanding correctly? That is one of the most tragic fake-psychic stories I have ever heard.

James Gotobed on April 13, 2013:

I have unfortunately been left attempting suicide, after loosing my 25 year marriage and most of my possessions to a so called psychic. Tracie Long of Magic and Glitter managed to convince me that through her readings to me and guided meditation sessions. That we were destined to be together and married if I followed her plan. After she walked out when the money ran out it left me alone and with nothing. After I complained to the Spiritual workers association, who could not prove her wrong doings, she added insult to injury by accusing me of harrassment and threatening to kill her. The case is on 14 th May at Chelmsford court. I had seen her take hundreds of pounds from people over the year while living with her, only to pass them off to young students or just text back complete rubbish. I wish I had seen my dismiss coming but love was blind. Regards Jim

TheFamousCash on April 06, 2013:

How can anyone even begin to believe in such drivel?

Mind you, MILLIONS of poor, deluded souls throughout the world already believe in non-existant things, ghosts, fairies, gods, spirits, et cetera.

It is up to the sane to educate these silly people.

Harass your member of parliament to try to get the long overdue law passed to stop these thieves from operating openly.

They should be fined, imprisoned and the money returned to their victims.

Let's put an end to this currently legal easy way of stealing from the vulnerable and feeble-minded!

purpleisthebest on January 07, 2013:

I almost got sucked in today because it was my birthday on the 6th and tara and norah both gave simular readings. I am very intuitive myself and felt some of the things they were talking about. However I would't give my card out. I went online to see how to reach them in person and found this.

She asked me more about "names" of people then she would ever know. It was cool. I'm from Alberta and went to see her in Toronto, she had no clue about me. I'll never forget that conversation!!

I have terminal cancer with a prognosis for death in mid- December of the current year, 2012. Following is some of today's prediction for me from 'Pasqualina' I have not paid over any money; just as well given how ' off the wall ' the predictions are !

Abstract... ' Understand, Donal, that what the Tarot cards and magical oracles predict is what the spirits are intent on carrying out for your happiness. This is why the advice of the oracle and the dates it will reveal will guide you towards the success and fulfillment of your desires. This is certitude!

Yes, for you, Donal, all the frustrations and disappointments from which you have suffered for years will evaporate on the night of Saturday, September 29, 2012.'

This 'Pasquelia' site has little or no merit so be warned !

Here's an article about what to do "When an Online Psychic/Astrologer Says You'll Miss Your Chance." https://sylviasky.hubpages.com/hub/When-an-Online-... You can always block the emails.

K G S on September 06, 2012:

I have to say that I have fallen for both Zora and Tara. Zora is the most rent less profit of doom and gloom. He/She drowns you in toxic negativity. Implying that if you don't take up her offers that you have debilitating problems that only She/He can help you with.

I have been receiving 2 or 3 Emails a day for over a month. The script was so off the mark in my case, In total contradiction to every thing I desire or believe in. It misterfies me as to how I am going to have a big win at some sort of game of chance WHEN I DO NOT GAMBLE. I am totally positive, contented and successfully at anything I set my mind to. Yet I am told that I have serious failing's I am missing out on all that I deserve in my life.

The rubbish that is heaped on me daily is designed to suggest to the gullible that to trust in the life changing events that only She/He can bring. WARNING.... beware of any one that constantly tell's you to trust them. It is a sure sign that person is not to be trusted.
