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 are at their most vulnerable. That is how the scam works; believe me, I’ve been there. Sadly the Internet is full of psychic scams these days. I’m alerted to a new one at least twice a week now.

First thing to remember is not to panic. Just about everything can be undone, but you have to act quickly. So put aside the “who is to blame” for a minute and roll up your sleeves so you can fix this problem.

What To Do Immediately

First, you have to stop communicating with the scam artist, or communicating with them in any way. You must do this! If it 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. Cut it off no matter what sort of threats they make.

Cancel Any Form Of Payment That Hasn’t Cleared

scam psychic cancel payments

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. If they have your bank account information, social security number or drivers license numbers you need to notify all of them that you have been a victim of fraud. They can then notify you of any suspicious activity and prevent the scam artist from cleaning you out!

Contact Your Local Police Department

Psychic advice

Give them as much information as you can. I made the mistake of not calling the police when I got 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. It may help someone else in the future or help the police put them in jail for a long time when they do finally catch them.

Contact The Internet Crime Complaints Center For Online Psychics

The Internet Crime Complaints Center is operated by the United States Federal Bureau of Investigations. On there website there is a form you can submit to report the crime. Tell them what happened, where you found their website, and any other information you can recall.

Contact the Federal Trade Commission also. If you don’t report it, other people could get scammed just like you. These are necessary steps that help bring these criminals to justice.

Don’t Blame Yourself!

its not your fault

Con artists are very good at what they do. It’s their “job” after all. We need a little advice and understanding once in a while, and sometimes we’re too trusting. After all, giving people the benefit of doubt is human nature. You had no idea they were going to take advantage of you.

Once you’ve learned that you can’t trust a specific psychic, do everyone else a favor and leave them a review. Do an internet search for psychic review websites and leave negative feedback in as many places as possible. Sharing your experience helps others not fall victim to them.

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 genuinely want to help you on your journey through life, so keep searching for that psychic with who you can build a connection.

  1. 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?

    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.

  3. Spot on wijth this write-up, I seriously believe that this site needs much more attention. I’ll probably be returning to read more, hanks for tthe advice!

  4. Hi Angela. I have been scammed by a so called psychic named Esmeralda apparently she is a well known scammer.And still operating too.I was told i was apparently cursed and had to , as funny as it sounds drink garlic soup for 2 weeks and put 2 half onions on my bedside table to remove it.I declined .But my instincts told me to look her up.And i found out yep scam.Cancelled my card and spammed and deleted all her mes s ages.

    • I’m sorry to hear you were scammed Kel, but I’m happy to hear you found out Esmeralda is a scam before you lost everything to this scammer! Stay vigilant. Best Wishes!

      • I’ve been scammed ….by mother s daughter team ….by the daughter first who said there is big darkness heaviness she said on out first time she did the reading n she claimed that darkness jealousy being around my entire family n already get to my son …I lost all my money n even end up with the loan ….they promise me and my only son have an evil around me and once they remove it we will be happy ….n that she put a protection on future generations …it’s being going on over 4 years my life turn into hell …now I feel heaviness shortly after they start their “work” and I feel disillusioned trapped with some overpower and after to speak up because it’s a spiritual work and I can’t share it with anyone till it’s done …..ir evil will go even more crazy

        • Hi Anna,

          None of this is true. There are no dark spirits holding you back. Run away from this so called “Psychic” and never look back. Report them to police if they have taken money or valuables from you.

      • Yeah,I was scammed by her too!

  5. I’ve been scammed of $5300.00 to supposedly cleanse my money to remove a curse. But,I had this person to sign a paper saying she would return it when she was finished. This was last May 2018. I fell on hard times and needed my money and I called and asked for it. She claimed she had put it in her church for them to cleanse it. It couldn’t have been that dirty.My husband was going to leave, everyone I loved would go away from me because my ex had put a curse on me.And I was asked to buy an expensive bed dressing for my “marriage bed”. I spent over $500.00 on that. I’m gullible I admit , but geez how stupid could I be? What should I do?

    • What was the name of the psychic? Do you know the website?

    • Cheryl, I would contact the police. There is a legal term called “crimes of confidence” and this so called fake Psychic committed that crime. Please report it, it’s the only way they will be able to do anything. Your money is probably gone but you can help others by reporting this woman so the police can investigate and bring charges against her.

    • I’m so sorry to here this Any. It sounds like you are a victim of a scam just like myself. None of what this Psychic has told you is true. Please shut this so called “Psychic” out of your life immediately and contact the Police to see if they can help you. This is exactly what happened to me, they will try and scare you to get more money out of you until you are flat broke. Once you’re broke they will disappear. Please stop talking with these people, they are scam artists and nothing more.

  7. what about the famous medium/astrologist Jessica Adams? do you consider her real?
    I sure don’t. after paying monthly fee I started asking questions, she told me stuff that I absolutely didn’t find any connection too , I lied and told her she was right on the money….yep the scam continued. She told me she talked to my parents, who told her about a song and object….none of which meant a thing to me.
    After asking a very specific question , she refuses to reply with anything but nonsense.
    what kind of person who claims to have a real ability refuses to help a person, instead just takes the cash???
    A fake

    • Hi Hank,

      I don’t have any experience with Jessica Adams but it sounds like you answered your own question. I would steer clear of her in the future it sounds like she was setting you up for a scam.

      • Jessica Adams is a scam . She is a complete fake, probably a rich one too. Don’t get caught up in the subscription service. Its literally the same forecasts over and over, ask questions and she gives you generic answers that don’t make sense and its impossible to cancel .

        • Hi Ashley, I’m sorry to hear you had a problem with Jessica Adams. Just a quick look at her website reveals that she’s an astrologer. She claims to be Psychic but all of her services involve astrology or charting. There is very little mention of her Psychic gifts.

          I wouldn’t call her a scam, but I wouldn’t call her a Psychic either.

  8. Thank you Angela for this wonderful resource!
    To everyone who has beem scammed, please know that you are not “stupid” or “dumb” for trusting these people to help you. They have spent years learning how to manipulate people’s emotions and they took advantage of you at your most vulnerable. What they did was wrong. But, they continue to thrive because they know their victims will be too ashamed to talk to others about their experiences. But you must report them! And you musn’t be ashamed!
    I was exactly where you are and it has motivated me to write about it. I knew I was not alone and you’ve all proved me right! If you are interested in sharing your story (even completely anonymously) please let me know! I would love to speak with you and help you tell your story. I am a young journalist, currently in school and I am passionate about exposing this.

    I hope this is not inappropriate to post, but I really do believe that there is power in our stories and that we can help others avoid a similar fate.
