I did so today and I was very satisfied to see that Raven Franks has raised her $8.99 per minute rate to $11.20 per minute. As much as I am sure she will justify that by her "expertise" and satisfied clients being willing to pay that rate for her "readings", I am entitled to dispute that. The very fact that she recently authorized a full refund to a dissatisfied client told me that she is feeling the impact of the truth about her claims coming to light.
Clearly, to make up for her loss of business she has had to raise her rate to make up the difference. She makes a lot of money off of the innocence of her victims. If you review her ratings you will see the same usernames over and over again. She has changed her picture several times in the recent past as well as editing her profile. I can only think that she has raised her rate as she is feeling the impact of a decreased client following. If I am wrong, so be it. I just cannot think of any other explanation as she insists in her profile that she gives reduced rates to returning customers. She attempts to project empathy to her clients and wants them to believe that it is more important that she "help" them than make money off of them.
From my experience nothing could be further from the truth. She would be ready, willing and eager to have given me a "reading" as many times per day or week that I wanted. She never advised me to "wait a bit" or "see if her prediction came through" before she would eagerly off to "take a look". Nothing was more supportive of this information as when I questioned her she defended herself by telling me of her financial woes and how she was "one step away from homeless", "had no child support", "was a Breast Cancer survivor" and desperately "needed her Kasamba income".
She obviously has raised her rate to bring in the difference in her income now that the truth about her has surfaced.It disappoints me to see that people are still falling victim to the site and it's "Experts" when there are countless reports from people warning the general public of their experiences.
Although the reports on this site are unreliable since so many of them are from "Experts" and former/current clients with their own agenda - there is still enough credible evidence that seeking a "reading" from and "Expert" on Kasamba is the same thing as betting hundreds of dollars on a game of chance in a Casino. I know I've done my part to bring the truth to the light and unfortunately that was stifled by the inappropriate goals of a person who presented themself as a disgruntled client (when no one will ever know just exactly who he or she is or what he or she was attempting to accomplish).
The bottom line is that I and so many others ceased giving our money to these scam artists and they are feeling the financial "crunch" of that. If Raven Franks had over 4,000 satisfied customers at $8.99 per minute....why "rock the boat" and increase her rate over $2.00 more? Let's see what happens and how that effects her "reviews". All I KNOW is when I was paying her on a regular basis she was an empathetic and "concerned" "friend"....as soon as I began to question her she became adversarial, accusatory and in a word - nasty.
Although she did apologize on this site to me, she did refuse to address my request for a refund (obviously because my money was GONE). My satisfaction was in her authorizing a refund to a client and changing her profile and removing her unsubstantiated claims of "100% accuracy" and changing her title to "Fortune Teller". WHY someone would pay $11.20 per minute for the input of a "Fortune Teller" is beyond me.
Everyone is responsible for their decisions. Just as I took responsibility for mine. That did not exclude me from attempting to bring the truth to the light as well as pursuing a refund. Hopefully, someday Kasamba.com will fade away and these "Experts" will be forced to work at Carnivals or Bridal Showers. Let's all continue to do our part!!
