What To Do If You’ve Been Scammed By A Psychic

Ok first things first, don’t blame yourself. Too many people blame themselves, and it’s not your fault. Most psychics take advantage of people when they at their most vulnerable. That is how the scam works, believe me I’ve been there.

Here’s what you need to do immediately…

Stop talking to the scam artist, or communicating with them in any way.

Psychic scamThis is important! If this means you have to change your phone number then do it. If you are still communicating with the scam artist then there is very little you can do.

Cancel any checks you have written that have not cleared the bank yet.

If you gave them your credit card number notify your bank to deny any charges from them. You want to try and recover as much money as you can.

Contact your local police department.


Give them as much information as you can. I made the mistake of not calling the police when I was scammed, learn from my mistake. Most of the time the police can file charges. These are called “crimes of confidence.”

Be sure to mention that phrase to the Police. Sometimes the Police won’t be able to help you immediately, but please file the report anyway as it may help someone else in the future, or help the Police put them in jail for a long time when they finally do catch them.

Contact the Internet Crime Complaints Center, if you met the fraudulent psychic on the Internet.

Also tell them what happened, where you found their website and any other information you can recall. Also contact the Federal Trade Commission. If you don’t report it other people just like you could get scammed. These are important steps as it again helps bring these criminals to justice.

Don’t blame yourself!

Con artists are very good at what they do. It’s their “job” after all. All of us need a little advice and understanding once in a while, it’s human nature. Not all psychics are scam artists, many con-men and women use astrology and the guise of psychic ability to fool unsuspecting victims. Most psychics truly want to help you on your journey through life, so keep searching for that psychic you have a connection with.

      Hi Joel. No spells are real. I’m sorry they just aren’t. People have a God given gift called Free Will. No spell or potion or words can make someone love you or make them love you again. Free will trumps everything.

    I am not certain what to think. I was told by a psychic today that I began absorbing negative energy in the womb and that in one of my past lives I was a man who dealt with black magic to be successful. I did not help “Omar who now causes me many problems. Crystals and candles for each year of my life are needed to clear and have “Omar” forgive me for what happened in a past life. Not certain whether or not to believe it but years ago I was in a forum with hundreds of people when Teresa of Teresa Communicates called on me. Said it was my father and he was an entity…Teresa apologized for what I had gone tbrough. People were wailing and screaming…i never knew what to think. This psychic believes that the entity was “Omar and not my father…that “Omar fooled them…help

      Sounds like a scam to me Sharon, don’t fall for it. When you find a real Psychic you will realize all that stuff was just made up to steal your money.

    Why do all psychics bring about negative energy, and that they can help get rid of all the negative energy. I realized I got scammed, and I feel so disgusted now. Working with crystals? What does that have to do with getting rid of anything. Also, there is no such thing as a curse, correct? That someone knows everything I am up to?

      Hi Ross,

      Curses are something fake Psychics use to scare you out of your money. Sorry you fell for a scam but lesson learned. Real Psychics will never try and scare you.

    I was scammed out of my savings and into credit card debt by a psychic. I had words with her and now she is surrounding me and my husband with negativity. I was told this by another psychic. If I report her I am afraid she will do even more to harm us, What should I do?

      Kathy, report her. No Psychic can “curse” you or cause you problems spiritually. Both of these Psychics are lying to you.

    Hello, psychic power network I have been scammed out of thousands over a period of several years. Nothing has come to fruition. Is there anyway that I can get my money back. Please give me a suggestion. I have reported them and nothing.

      I Darmica,

      I’m so sorry to hear that. One of the reasons I don’t recommend them is because they don’t have a solid money back guarantee. If the charges are recent you could contact your credit card company and see about filing a charge back.
