MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) – BBB is warning the public of social media scammers in the psychic services industry.
BBB Scam Tracker has received reports from people who have paid for psychic services such as astrology or tarot readings but who never received what they paid for.
Customers often book and pay for a session with a content creator online, however; when the time comes for the session, the psychic is unreachable.
Complaints about no-show psychics are the most common version of the scam, according to BBB. Consumers also reported seeing fake reviews online or being pressured into paying for additional services.
“She gets you to come back by saying she will do healing meditation to get rid of the evil spirits,” the report said. “She pressures you that you need to give her cash/money to ‘cleanse’ the evil spirits or to use for the meditation.”
