One of the most popular psychic scams is when the psychic advises you that they see a curse or darkness surrounding you that they can ‘lift’ or ‘cure’ for a fee.

If buying something is pushed on you or part of the condition to being ‘cured’, walk the other way.

And as with anything that you want to purchase, it is always good common sense just to avoid very pushy and aggressive psychics. If they are legit, there is no reason to bully you into a session or tell you that you really have to purchase their services or more bad things will happen to you. Other psychic scams include psychics that state that their services are ‘free’ but then start adding on additional charges down the line.

If a psychic contacts you first trying to sell their services, forget it. Real psychics are not out there hawking their wares, and if they are really that good and reputable, then usually don’t even need to overtly advertise.
