Psychic scams deprive citizens of both money and emotional well-being. In these schemes, spiritual scammers with no psychic gifts set out to make a quick buck. They are good at telling people exactly what they want to hear. They promise to remove a bad luck curse, bring people great fortunes in their future, or even help them find their soulmate. People who buy into these scams are being taken on an emotional roller-coaster ride that continues to require more and more money to reach their desired outcome. Of course, they never do. If you’ve unwittingly participated in a scam, you are not alone. Psychics and spiritual mediums scam millions of people every year and can seriously affect the lives of Americans and their families.
