Christopher Golden charged me $800 to get my ex-girlfriend back. Before that Christopher charged me $150 for a phone consultation. He guaranteed me on the phone my ex-girlfriend Emily would call me in about 10 days. I never heard from Christopher Golden again! All phone calls and emails went unanswered. This guy Christopher Golden is a fraud! Don't let him con you! Christopher Golden running a "love psychic scam!"

discerning readers, eh?

AUTHOR: Qweh - ()

For discerning readers, I decided to play "test the psychic".

Chris was very supportive in telling me that could unite me with my dead ex girlfriend.

Time is short though, so I need to act quickly!

Under Siege - 11 bad reviews at once?

AUTHOR: Psychic Christopher Golden - ()

There is an entire column of negative reviews about Psychic Christopher Golden.  And they all just happened to be posted at the same time, using different names, and expressing different complaints.

And then it just stops.

Imagine the incredible coincidence of that.  What are the odds?

It almost makes you wonder if someone made these up.  

I've read through every one of them.  They are coming from 2 different people.  One is an SEO expert, who is apparently not happy with my service.  And the other is from a rather unstable woman, whom I gave a reading to, that insists I put a spell on her, causing her to change into a man.

Needless to say, I did not change anyone's gender and I did not "scam" anyone.  And I want to thank the many clients who have taken the time to write rebuttals to all of these.  Unfortuntately, the more positive comments that have been posted in response, the more new Rip Off Reports that come up, with new and inventive complaints.  Someone is intent on smearing my online reputation.  The discriminating reader will make their own decision.

Cyber Smearing Psychic Christopher Golden?

AUTHOR: Beverly - ()

I have personally worked as a psychic all of my life.  During that time I have learned of and met many fellow psychics.  Most are frauds.  I met Psychic Christopher Golden many years ago, back when he was known by his actual legal name, before he changed it to Christopher Golden.  In fact, I knew him before he or any of us had a website.

Chris has a reputation that precedes him.  He is well liked by everyone and known for being accurate, kind and full of wisdom.  Several people I know think of him as a spiritual mentor.

I see that, in one day, someone posted 11 Rip Off Reports against Chris.  Chris does not rip off anyone.  These reports are an attempt to destroy his credibility online.

My rebutal is an attempt, like so many others, to talk about the Chris I know.  The media articles are real.  There are many more than what were listed by someone who is trying to belittle the media attention.

Chis has always complained that most of the articles focus too much on the fact that he has a handful of celebrity clients.  He has said, in print, that over 95 percent of his clientele are neither rich nor famous.  He has also stated, and to his credit, that he will never reveal the names of any of his clients.

I think the reason he features the Wall Street Journal articles on his website is because it is extremely unusual for such a publication to feature, not one but two articles, about a psychic.  Every online psychic would love the credibility that comes from being acknowledged by the Wall Street Journal.  And it's not as though others have not tried, but they failed.  It is very hard for a psychic to get into the Wall Street Journal, and for good reason.  It is a very serious, sober, establishment newspaper.  

The interviewer who got both articles into WSJ had to demonstrate to that paper that Chris was newsworthy.  I would personally love to get into the Wall Street Journal, but the publishers there have not heard of me, as they have with Chris.  Clearly someone high profile had to have said he was credible or else it would not have happened. 

There are several WordPress sites which host articles written by Chris and point back to his website.  There are also copies of a few articles written by bloggers who are credited, and these point back to their websites.  This is a normal practice in eCommerce, is transparent and above-board.

In closing I would like to say one last thing.  Since the psychic industry went online there are all kinds of frauds out there.  The pressure is on the legitimate psychics to create a website that can compete with the flashy and exciting sites of our phony competition.  Chris' site does not make any untrue claims.  Many of us asked him why he uses a site that looks homemade and he said that is what works.  I personally know of 2 psychics who have followed his lead, in terms of marketing, because it's true that people do not trust a polished psychic site.  They are looking to connect with an actual person, not a personae or a company.

In a sea of phonies, Chris is the real deal.  I cannot personally say who all of his high profile clients are, but I do know for a fact that he has plenty.  As I said, his reputation precedes him.  I live in the same town and I hear things, things that Chris will neither confirm nor deny.  He has been someone I have gone to for advice and he is kind and generous.  When someone who is neither rich nor famous books a 15 minute reading, he will usually alllow you to go over on the time.  He genuinely cares.  You will find him to be warm and wise and just a really good person.

This atttempt to destroy the online reputation of Psychic Christopher Golden is transparent and digusting.

Beverly, you've got to be kidding me

AUTHOR: Qweh - ()

Where to begin?

Chris is claiming to be publicly slandared. However, not a single one of his "noteworthy" clients has stood up for him. Now, celebrities dI a lot of silly things that we embrace and accept...so why would none of them come forward voluntarily to support their "spiritual mentor"? He had no problem telling some of his other clients to rally to his side, after all. i would never ask him to violate their confidentiality, but they could choose to do it themselves.

As for your attempts to sideline my questioning his media credentials by saying I'm "belittling" them...I'm simply pointing out the truth. There are a total of TWO articles. It's the same two "articles", which were published on prnewswire.com and its affiliates. Prnewswire.com was under suspicion of publishing false articles about the president, as anyone with Google can find out, so why would I trust anything it pushes out? If Chris was truly newsworthy, wouldn't the WSJ have published a unique article or interview utilizing one of THEIR objective and accomplished staff? Prnewswire.com publishes user created content for money and distributes it. When the WSJ interviews a psychic on their own, then the world can take note.

Also, Chris COMPLAINS that people focus too much on how he has celebrity clients?! The man uses it as a selling point! He quotes the WSJ article...which is NOT a WSJ article but simple a prnewswire article on the WSJ site...referring to himself as a "psychic to the stars". One of the "articles" he agreed to is about why celebrities use psychics! So he COMPLAINS about something he'a uses to market himself? 

His website doesn't just look homemade...it looks shoddy. Cheap. The man charges a 50k/month retainer and can't pay to have his website updated? Here's a thought: most psychic webpages look unpolished because most are fakes, made it themselves, and charge for fake ramblings...and have 0% celebrity clients. Chri. Has, at minimum, two celebrity clients. Enough to be considered a "psychic to the stars", plural. Don't you think people would take this claim more seriously and utilize him if his website LOOKED like he was a psychic to the stars? Or at the very least, that he had enough taste to get rid of that yellow and blue scrolling text that focuses on an article on the WSJ that that WSJ had absolutely nothing to do with? Couldn't he at least be more upfront and say that his interview with prnewswire was featured on WSJ instead of giving the impression that the WSJ actually interviewed him themselves?

Claiming to be featured in so many media outlets, when there are TWO articles that were written by NONE of those stated media outlets (and half of his links either don't work, lead to a BLOG or to an offshoot of prnewswire...check the ABC news link for that one...it does NOT go to an ABC page, but to a site affiliated with prnewswire) is shifty behavior at best.

Here's an experiment for funzies. I used the submission form on Chris' website a few weeks back. Now, whatever reading he got of my energy wouldn't be too different than what he should be able to pick up here, as it's still text and I'm being just as open and have directed intention here. Let's see if he can determine which prospective client I was (he did email me back, after all). If he can send me an email calling me out on this ripoff report, I'll sing his praises until the end of time...and I've got enough saved up for his monthly retainer, so I'll hire him on.

Bring it.

Chris Golden's claims to be "seen on" news reports are false

AUTHOR: Qweh - ()

I've tossed this statement out in another Ripoff Report about him, but here it goes again:

 

I've dug through Christopher Golden's information because I had considered using him, having gone through a rather difficult breakup myself.

However, something seemed off. For a man that's a "psychic to the stars", his website looks like it was put together by a total ametuer. If he was really making that much money by sucessfully helping people, I assume that his website would look a little less tacky. It's a representation of his brand, yet it's plainly obvious that he didn't pay a professional to put it together for him.

Now the big mystery: He CLAIMS to have been seen on Harvard Business Review, NBC News, Market Watch, Yahoo! Finance, Fox Business, Financhal Times, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, and CNN Money.

However, there isn't a shred of evidence he's been on any of these.

There is a single "article" on the WSJ about him, but it's actually just a transcript from prnewswire.com and the WSJ explicitly states that none of their staff was involved. Now, this same article appears on Daily Herald, Maimi Herald, Chicago Business Journal, The Boston Globe and others. The Yahoo! Finance "article" is exactly the same - it's the same distribution from prnewswire.com. To add in some suspicion, the profile of EVERY person who commented on this Yahoo! posting was recently made and had ONLY commented on this posting of Chris'.

Some of his "As Seen On" links just leads you to mediawebsite.net, which is an offshoot of prnewswire.com.

There is not a single independently written or published article or video about him or his skills.

And what of his celebrity clients? I would NEVER ask a single one of them to come forward and share exactly how Chris helped them, but not a single one of these celebrities has stepped forward to say "Chris is the real deal! Trust him!" to help further the career and success of their trusted advisor.

So many celebrities are open about choices that are no less strange, just as Scientology, yet none will step forward to vouch for Chris even when he's being called out on a Ripoff forum?

 

Edit: He ALSO links to psychiclovespells.wordpress.com

A wordpress site? Really? That's run by him and anything posted there is moderated and manipulated entirely by him.

Good lord it's transparent.

As I said...

AUTHOR: Teamen - ()

As I have said elsewhere on this site on another report rebuttal, Psychic Christopher Golden is bar none the best psychic I have ever spoken to.

He told me to come on here and read all the crazy reports that crazy people have been writing about him. At first I didn't believe him, but now I see them all and I am taken aback.

I want to help Chris out, so I am posting here to say that I have been speaking to Chris regularly in the past few months, and he has never let me down. He helped me get my ex back, and now he is helping me with amazing career advice. I am very thankful that I found the great Christopher Golden, and that he finds time in his busy schedule to advise me.

What's with all the false accusations?

AUTHOR: jstacey - ()

I really don't know what's going on here, but I am truly appalled. I consider Psychic Christoper Golden to be a true friend and trusted advisor.

If you are looking for a real psychic that can help you through your most difficult life situations, then talk to Chris, he can definitely help you out. He helped me, and I am sure that he can do the same for anyone that follows his advice.

Extortion - False Report

AUTHOR: Psychic Christopher Golden - ()

This sudden rash of Rip Off Reports are coming from the same angry client.  He paid me for 2 readings and for some metaphyiscal services.  He did not follow my instructions but is demanding to have his money back.  He has said, right here on Rip Off Report, that if I want the smear campaign to stop, all I have to do is to send him money.

 

That's not going to happen.  Instead I will be pursing legal action for the following:

 

- Extortion

- Fraud

- Criminal Defamation

- Civil Harrassment

 

I have built a reputation by being fair honest and accurate, most of the time.  No one is 100 percent accurate in my line of work.  

I feel that, had this client following my instructions, there would have been a positive outcome.  But that's not what happened.  And I refuse to be the scapegoat for someone who is an unemployed SEO expert, whose girlfriend left him, and he needs somoene to be angry at.

 

I will not cave in to extorition.  I will fight back.
