Another ex employee said the same thing.

AUTHOR: Jessica - ()

I agree with the clairvoyant that said they only get paid .20.  I was on another site with a review about this company and there was an ex employee that said the same thing.  I am not ripping on all of the employees because there are some that are actually nice and wanna help you.  

My two favorite ones are Psychic Angel Reader Nicole and Psychic Kendra so far.  Some psychics you may just not click with.  Those psychics are hard working individuals just as you are.  I thank you for being honest.  You seem like a nice person.

No fraud

AUTHOR: Not a happy momma - ()

These other pages may not be directly linked to ask now, but it was through some of the above pages that I recieved a recommendation to use asknow, and was screwed over by ask now. So yes, technically, they ARE involved if they lead people to use a certain site that defrauds people!

#3 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Ex employee rebuttal

AUTHOR: Psychic1111 - ()

They are a scam. after working there over a year, I got the general impression that they want you to hold the caller on the line as long as possible, at any cost. They even pay the psychics based on repeat calls and average call length. The manager has these impossible quotas to reach like she won't pay you more than 20 cents per min (callers pay up to $13 per min!?) if you don't have at least a 30 min call average. It's impossible, even if you try because the company "accidentally" cuts off half the calls so the quotas are unattainable.

I've even heard from callers that some psychics are telling them they have curses on them & will remove the curse for longer calls. I told Gigi, the owner that I refuse to mislead the callers. That caused her to go from giving me back to back calls (12+ hr shifts with no break -and she'd call me to log back on after 24 hrs straight work, by the way) to only giving me 2 or 3 calls per day.

And most of those are cut short too. It's the craziest thing I have ever seen. Whether this is on purpose or not, it's not fair & it's not right. If you're thinking of working for this company, think twiCe because it's a horrible one.I'm genuinely clairvoyant and can see the lies these psychics tell to keep callers on the line. If you're a caller of AskNow, or any of these other companies (yes, they're linked together) beware.

Fraudulent Claim Made

AUTHOR: FraudDetector - (United States of America)

This complaint is obviously made by someone with an alternative motive. I happen to KNOW for a fact that several of the company names listed have nothing to do with each other. Some are even websites with advertisements on them! The complainant sounds like they are grasping at straws.
