Are There Real Psychics Online?

by Melissa Stevens on October 8, 2014

Finding real psychics online can seem like a daunting task at first. There are a thousand different listings, and it can be difficult to know what to look for in a psychic. The Internet allows anyone to set up and advertise a website, meaning anyone can market themselves as a psychic—whether they are skilled in the psychic arts or not. As the psychic services industry grows, the number of con artists looking for a quick cash-in will only grow as well. The good news is that it is possible to find real psychics online if you know how to differentiate them from the fakes. Here’s what you need to know.

Check Out the Website Itself

Your first indication of whether you are dealing with a legitimate online psychic or a fraud is the psychic’s own website. The website can tell you a lot about the psychic, before you even initiate contact. Spend some time studying and clicking around on a psychic’s site to get a feel for it.

A real psychic will have a website that is professionally designed, so the site should be visually appealing and easy to use. Professional design also means the content on the site should be well written. Spelling and grammatical errors, dead links, excessive pop-up ads, and websites that were clearly built with an assembly line-style site builder indicate a fake. Fake psychics simply want to make fast, easy money, meaning their website will appear as if it was hastily constructed. Real psychics run a legitimate business, and the website will reflect this.

Check Out Online Psychic Reviews

One of the best ways of learning about whether or not a psychic is credible is to read the reviews hosted on that psychic’s website and other review sites. True psychics will have scores of reviews, sometimes on their own site and often on third-party review sites. It is always better to go to a third-party site, as the psychic has no control over which reviews get posted there. A good psychic will have numerous positive reviews. Beware of psychics who have a perfect rating or thousands of perfect reviews—excessive praise is usually a sign that the reviews have been faked. No psychic can be 100% accurate with every single prediction they make.

What Are the Readings Like?

By far the best method for telling the true psychics from the pretenders is to attend a reading. Some psychics offer a free introductory session for newcomers, which is usually shorter than a typical session but long enough for you to get a sense of the psychic’s style. Most psychic readers will want to get to know you so that they can better help you solve your problems. Real psychics will give you the space to express yourself and should make you feel safe and empowered.

Fake psychics are in the industry because they want to earn a lot of money very quickly and with minimal effort. Thus, fake psychics will use every trick they know to part you from your hard-earned money.  These fraudsters will use cold reading techniques to gather information about you, and then use that information to convince you that they are authentic.  They will even try to make you feel afraid or guilty so they have an easier time manipulating you. Real psychics want you to feel comfortable and at home during a session, rather than make you feel vulnerable.

The fact of the matter is that there are real psychics online. Sadly, the number of fake readers looking to scam innocent people is on the rise. When looking for a psychic, pay attention to the psychic’s website and reviews— a trusted psychic will have a professionally designed website and mostly positive reviews, while a fake will have a sloppy website and perfect reviews. Finally, a reading can tell you a lot about a psychic’s style and authenticity.   By knowing how to spot a fake, you can make sure you find the best psychic companies to work with.
