Should Phone In Psychics Be Banned?
 
# 1 : Friday 25-10-2013 @ 14:13
 
 
Recently someone I know payed 20 euro to talk to a phone in psychic for a few minutes "chat" getting no more information than she already knew already. It was lucky she called from a pre pay mobile or else it could have been very expensive indeed and the whole experience left her feeling rather cheated.

Should phone in psychics be banned or could the phenomena be considered religious in nature? Why is this area not regulated as its obviously some form of con.

I spent £200-€200 (can't rememeber if it was 2000 or 2002) on them once. Parents were furious. I wanted to know how a meet would go, election results in the US etc. She said: "you will meet someone of like mind". She also said the Democrats would win that year which of course didn't happen but the first prediction may have been true.

I had no idea it would be so expensive. I think it was "Irish Psychics" that I rang. I didn't mention I had contacted them until my parents got the phone bill.

Can you not see my age beside my username?

Age besides a username means little. Why would your parents be angry if you got a 200 euro bill? I presumed you paid for it since you were an adult at the time.

I lived with them at the time so it was technically part of their entire bill.

I'm not sure what you mean by that

You ran up these charges, you should have offered to cover at least half of that bill.

My sister became addicted to these phone bitches she was in serious debt to her phone company......Citizen Advice helped her deal with the mess and her son gave her mobile after disconnecting the line......... Physics prey on a lot of vulnerable people and it's time for regulation.

I'm sure there are some genuine psychics out there but the telephone crowd are clearly taking advantage by charging ludicrous rates. When people are getting into debt then some regulation is needed.

I think people into fortune telling would be better off paying a fixed fee and seeing a psychic in person.

If there were then it would have been proven as an actual ability by now.
I believe there are a few that actually believe they are psychic, but that's more than likely down to mental health issues.

You only have that sentiment Mystic Zig because you want to get rid of the competition and have a monopoly on charging gullible grannies extortionate rates for offering to be a medium between them and their passed on cats.

I wonder if drunk people get mixed up between the online psychics and the sexy chat ladies, and call the wrong number?
