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. Unfortunately, I would know because I’ve been there.
Sadly the Internet is full of psychic scams, and I’m alerted to a new one at least twice a week. The first thing to remember is not to panic. You can undo just about everything but 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 must stop communicating in any way with the scam artist. You must do this! If you have to change your phone number, do it. If you’re still communicating with them, 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
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 driver’s license number, you need to notify all of them that you’re a fraud victim. They can inform you of any suspicious activity and prevent the scam artist from cleaning you out!
Contact Your Local Police Department
Give them as much information as you can. I did not call the police when I got scammed; please learn from my mistake. Most of the time, the police can file charges 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 the scammer in jail for a long time when they finally catch them.
Contact The Internet Crime Complaints Center For Online Psychics
The United States Federal Bureau of Investigations operates the Internet Crime Complaints Center. You can submit a form to report the crime on their website. Tell them what happened, where you heard of the scammers’ website and any other information you can recall. Also, contact the Federal Trade Commission. 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!
Con artists are very good at what they do. It’s their “job,” after all. We occasionally need advice and understanding, but we can be too trusting. After all, giving people the benefit of the 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.
Search for psychic reviews online 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. 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.
