I have been using kasamba/liveperson ever since I was old enough to have my own debit card. I was young and vulnerable, and very much manipulated to believe the messages these psychics were sending. Shame on me for paying so much money for these frauds, but shame on them for messing with my head. Now that I am older and wiser, I'd like to share with you the various psychics who were inaccurate, and the very few who were accurate. I will exempt any psychics who no longer have profiles

The Inaccurate Psychics:

PAT the ANGELS MESSENGER - Ridiculously wrong. Told me there was distance between me and my friend because our souls wanted to teach us how to heal on our own.

maria lassic - I can't believe I paid for this. Told me the distance between me and my roommate was all in my head.

Anne Maclean - Completely wrong! None of her predictions came true, and she thought I was a man.

Angel Wings 777 - Just wrong about the predictions.

Aqua Marine - Off, and rude. Once I told her her reading wasn't accurate, she closed the window and blocked me so I couldn't leave a negative rating.

Serene Spirit - I hate to say this, but she was wrong.

Psychic Readings by Raven - Wrong, unfortunately

Psychics Ray and Starla - Very wrong. She got one prediction right. It amazed me. But the rest were wrong.

Elysabeth Cherniak - Wrong. Just wrong.

Psychic Marshall - I contacted him after one of my favorite teachers moved away. I asked him if we'd ever see each other again. He told me we would in about a year. Our original session was twenty minutes. After that, I got 2-3 minute follow-up sessions once a month, every month, for a year. As the time for his prediction grew closer, he pushed it back a month. Finally, when he could not push it back any further, he casually said, "It seems as though you won't meet up again." I was so upset I left an honest review. He sent me an angry email.

Knowingangel - This one pains me the most. I trusted her so much. But she was just wrong. I'm sorry, I hate to say this, but she wasn't right.

Athena Sloan - So wrong. And it would have been dangerous for me to believe her.

Elizabeth Antoinette - Wrong, and equally very disappointing

Gypsy Raven - I'm sorry, but just wrong. She told me someone would respond to an email, and she never did.

SHARAD KUMAR SONI - I had a severe headache and it was too late to see a doctor. He told me it was from negative energy and that I should donate something black to a needy person. He said it would take a month to clear up. I didn't follow his advice. My headache cleared up the next day.

Sandra Reader and Advisor - She is no longer available, but none of her predictions came to pass.

Crystal Yasmeen - Completely off. She told me a guy felt a certain way, but he actually felt the opposite.

Scottish Glendhu - Although she seemed like a saint, she was very wrong.

psychic krista, now known as psychic korissia - Very VERY wrong. It would have totally gotten my hopes up, had I believed her.

Seer Matroska - One of her major predictions came true, but the rest seemed to be off.

Ezekiel - So VERY wrong. Nothing he said came true. Just a bunch of empty promises.

Thinker Bell - Apparently I had a great army in my past life

OneGoodSoul - Said, "When you see him and he appears to ignore you, the real reason is because it brings back memories..." Whatever. In other words, "He's just not that into you."

Moriah - I really trusted her, but she was flat out wrong. I even came back a few months later to ask another question, and like a script, she almost said the same thing.

Helena Vaughn - Simply wrong

A mazing Psychic Maiara (Now Magic Maiara) - So convincing. Had me fooled. But off.

Psychic Katrina - Tarot - wrong, unfortunately

Reader Tiffany - Wrong. Probably the saddest one. Told me I'd receive an apology I never did.

Lady Bastet SilverMoon - I got a reading for my best friend whose boyfriend broke up with her. It was completely off.

Milagras - Sweet, but general. Clearly not connected. Nothing came true.

I'm putting them in between:

Metaphysical_Guidance - The most important prediction was just plain wrong. But there were some things I can't dismiss as coincidence.

The Accurate Psychics:

Reflective Soul - Her predictions have been accurate in the past

Shining More Love - Seems very accurate. Can see things without much from me.

Oracular guidance by Mika - He was actually right. It's tough to say if it was a coincidence or not.

Nubiagoddess - Although blunt, she told me the truth, even though it wasn't what I wanted to hear. She is no longer available for sessions.

Eve0001 - She was actually right. I didn't give her much information at all, but years later, I look back on it, and see that she could really see the truth.

My Conclusion:

There are such things as real psychics, but don't get caught up in Liveperson/Kasamba like I did. In the folly of my youth, I've learned many lessons. DON'T get caught up in fluffy, general statements. Beware if the reader seems too optimistic. Pay attention to reviews. It's wiser to trust, "Predictions came to pass," rather than, "Great reader! Such a nice friend! Loved her," etc. The best proof is time.

Assessment on unrealistic situations

AUTHOR: Reality Bites - (United States of America)



It is strange that you can make an assessment on so many experts of Kasmaba/LivePerson by running through the pages with 6 months worth of 1 and 2 minute sessions that have to do with an unusual obsession with a female teacher and you are a female also.


First of all, how likely is it that a female teacher that is in a totally different generation than you are(and you are barely an adult yourself), will honor, or even entertain your romantic advancements towards her when she is a married woman and no longer even living in the same state as you are, much less realizing that you are fantasizing about her.


Secondly, anyone with any real psychic ability will tell you that you can not receive and full and accurate assessment and advise of a situation in 1 or 2 minutes, and be able to rate and comment on them fairly.


Thirdly, you should be ashamed of yourself that you listed these psychics (some well respected) as being inaccurate or fake because you were told that your fantasy is not valid and things didn't pan out for you in the way that you dreamed.


And I am POSITIVE that this fantasy did not come to pass.


You would have been better off consulting a counselor or receiving a psychiatric evaluation than going to a psychic website which many state is for entertainment purposes anyway.


Were you hopping from epert to expert hoping to find one that would "entertain" your fantasies, and then finding yourself disappointed when reality hit?


You seem to have too much time on your hands!!


it would help the readers here to make a decision if your report is accurate if you supplied some proof or documentation, or even a scenario of just what your sessions were about..which is a bunch of unrealistic desires that you would never be able to attain.

The author's response

AUTHOR: A0kaeli - (U.S.A.)

Augusta and Not Better Off - Thank you for your comments. I'm glad I could help you.

PsychicAddiction - Thank you for your words of wisdom

Annette - While I agree with much of what you wrote, I feel that posting the names of psychics is important. There are only a few times I've actually found an accurate psychic, and all of them were found through this site. I appreciated the insight of others, just like I hope people will appreciate the insight of mine.

Butterfly - Thank you, you helped me to see another point of view. If you would like to redeem the psychic who recognized the problem with the eye, feel free to mention his or her name.

Dr. Philip Love - I apologize to you for offending you. I'm not sure if your post was directed towards me because I don't remember making any reference to you. I withhold any judgment towards you.

You are mistaken

AUTHOR: Dr. Philip Love - (U.S.A.)

I have been reading about Mina/Ophelia and whoever she is now for some time and I can assure you that I don't know. These are rumours that were planted by experts that were and are upset that I have managed to pass them in the rankings. In fact, most of the derogatory messages on this site are from experts trying to discredit each other.

For the sake of my clients and those that put their trust in me I am writting here.

And some of the other arguments are true about the people changing their pictures and names and sexes..I have been campaigning along with many other experts to have this rectified as it makes us all look bad. Lp is doing what they can and are working on it..but it's been painfully slow. I'm just as upset about that kind of fraud as you are.

Please don't paint us all with the same brush. It's not fair and not right.

#5 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Pleeeasse Phil Div or Love....you are sickening

AUTHOR: Gotiris - (Denmark)

Yes Dr Phillip Love, you and that thing you live with-what is it called-Mina or Ophelia, are just SO very honest. She was using a photograph of a Caucasian woman on her profile until November 2008 when she suddenly changed to a black woman and lost the veil'. She has a profile in spirituality and a separate one in life coaching. In addition to breaking the site terms of service (not that the company cares), by misrepresenting herself (like how can she turn from a beautiful woman to well -lets face it, she could carry the entire luggage of a full 747 in that chin), she lies to clients.

She is so eager to get money from clients that she lies about confidentiality issues. Did she not recently tell a prospective client that they should NOT worry about the confidentiality policy because the only reason the company states that it owns all the communications was to protect the experts. She has GOT to be joking. The company retains the right to use any communications between expert and client in ANY way that they please. Read the terms of service. The REAL counselors consider that this is an issue of great concern and consider that it is their professional duty to tell clients their confidentiality is NOT protected. Ophelia (AKA Mina) lies to clients and tells them not to worry about it. She is a such a sucker for a few dollars-typical con.

Ratings only cost a dollar these days. Yes, that is right, anyone can sign up as a client and rate themselves for a buck! It NO LONGER costs ten dollars. The reason for the change is obvious - more ways to fool the clients. You have ratings in your profile that are planted by experts to neutralize a bad rating. How is caring chloe (or whatever she is called) these days anyway? That ole lady of yours has had ratings removed and it seems that you two have some clients in common. You both have a lot of suspicious ratings. But hey, they only cost a dollar. It only takes a few key strokes to create an email account, sign up as a client, change the primary Paypal address plant a rating, maybe change the client name, plant a few more rating. You can get a lot of 'bang' out of 20 or 30 bucks that way. Hey, you might even be able to claim it from your tax as advertising'.

You REALLY don't expect ANYONE to believe that the company would close down extra client accounts used by experts to rig the ratings. They let experts change gender and race and do not even listen to the experts when they try and inform them. How long did Nathan or Mystic Destiny/Desiree (whomever he/she became recently) use the platform after the experts complained? Was it a year, or more? Do you not think that changing race and completely changing the profile is fraudulent? No, you would not! What about all the clients that Mina or Ophelia defrauded with the first version of the profile? Or don't you see that as fraud? The clients might have a different take on that.

Someone with your morals would not see that as unethical, now would you? Oh and you changed your alleged qualifications because of the college, and come on here and do this righteous actplease. You are a disgusting little man, married to a con artist who is not even smart enough to realize that people actually do not like it when service providers attempt to subsume their rights to the almighty dollar. Your feedback shows a few, shall we say, glaring inconsistencies and you expect people to believe that a company that ignores radical profile changes (gender and race) is going to expend time on tracking any client accounts opened by experts. That is SO not going to happen. If you expect anyone to believe you then you are dumber than Ophelia.

The company does even not check qualifications properly. A large number of health and medical experts on that site are NOT qualified to provide the services that they offer in some clusters. Experienced medical or counseling practitioners would NOT offer to cure drug or alcohol addiction with spiritual means in an online setting. They would know that it is highly dangerous because abrupt alcohol withdrawal can lead to seizures and the incidence of fatal overdose is very high in cohorts of relapsing narcotic addicts. In simple terms (so that even you can understand), UNLIKE YOU and that fraud thing you live with, professional experts WORRY ABOUT ETHICAL ISSUES SUCH AS CONFIDENTIALITY AND PATIENT HEALTH AND WELFARE. They also worry about the fact that the company does NOT listen to their concerns. The company does not have to care because, well, they have a disclaimer that they use to excuse themselves from caring about clients. Their company policies ARE DESIGNED TO MAXIMIZE PROFITS RATHER THAN PROVIDE A FAIR AND ETHICAL SERVICE TO CLIENTS OR EXPERTS.

The medical experts are not employees so the company does not have to care if a client becomes sick from inappropriate treatment. The public board requests in the health and medicine category are often concerned with serious medical issues. A lot are from clients without insurance. The clients are particularly vulnerable to the unqualified health and medical experts because the qualified experts would not respond to any requests that compromise their professional standards. Surely even someone like you DOCTOR Love can understand the desperation faced by some clients when they are sick and cannot afford appropriate medical care. Of course such clients will be vulnerable to people who claim to be medical doctors and offer to cure diseases with talisman. Yes, they do exist on the site. DOCTOR Love, you expect anyone to believe that garbage about the company taking time to close extra client accountspleeease.

But then again, your ethics are obviously somewhat lacking. One only has to look at your profile and feedback and that of Ophelia or Mina (or whatever she is called) in order to make that judgment. I repeat, unlike you and that thing you live with, the REAL counselors and medical experts express great concern about both the issue of confidentiality and that of the presence of experts that are obviously fraudulent. Ophelia is an insult to ALL health and well-being practitioners. She clearly does not have the high standards of professionalism necessary to provide good client service. She was happy to lie about the issue of confidentiality. She just couldn't resist the chance to get her hands on the money. The majority of the experts in the health, medical and life coaching categories are experienced practitioners.

It only takes one quack to harm a client and there are too many of those people on the site. The problem is, of course, that they are riding on the coat tails of the professionals and the clients are under the impression that all the experts are qualified and not out to defraud them. Ophelia is a case in point!

You are trying to say that the company will expend resources to track experts who open client accounts? That is SO NOT going to happen! They do not even bother to identify and remove experts who misrepresent themselves by changing race and/or gender. You are trying to tell us that you are honest? That is SO not true. Your feedback speaks for itself. Oh and spare us all that 'go forth in love' garbage. Really, in the current economic climate good food is a resource that does NOT deserve to be be wasted in the bathroom!

#6 UPDATE Employee


AUTHOR: Dr. Philip Love - (U.S.A.)

I have to say that I take offense to being put in the same story as the scams that you have described.

The fact of the matter is that I was heavily advertising initially and I did have a following already when I started with Liveperson the site. That is why I was able to do so well when I started.

There is nothing to be gained by rating myself. The ranking system now does not take into account how many ratings that you have as it did at one time. It uses other factors.

Liveperson would instantly see that I am opening several accounts only to rate myself and my account would be canceled just as quickly.

So please try to be educated about what you are talking about before sling accusations.

Yes I removed the Doctor of Divinity from my degrees because it would have required verification and I was not too happy about the idea of the University that I graduated from knowing that the religious degree that I earned was being used towards Psychic Readings. I do have a degree in Metaphysics that I can back up gladly to LP because that school is ok with what I do, in fact they encourage it.

I think you should be more careful about calling out names here. It's unfair and uncalled for.

Frankly if you simply wrote me I would have told you.

I do agree with a lot of the other things that you posted and I am always trying to help victims of one scam or another.

I always tell my clients. Just because someone is a psychic does not mean that they have high moral standards. They don't go hand in hand. You could have spiritual gifts and be a terrible person.

Spirituality has a good side and a bad side.

There is evil everywhere.

The best way to safeguard from scams is to get several opinions and don't trust your adviser with your life. I don't ask that my clients do that. I only ask that they have some faith in what I say. Sure I want to be paid for my services. But I am not ever going to ask for money for some emergency or demand thousands of dollars for anything....

It's all about faith in the Universe, In God and the future. Not in the person that you are talking to.

The rating system on Lp works. As experts it's next to impossible to have a bad rating removed. Only when it was left as a result of a technical difficulty will LP even consider it. A client can lie and say that we said things that we never said and LP will not remove the rating.

So if anything the rating system works in the clients favor because it cannot be touched or toyed with.

Don't be fooled into the idea that they care about how it affects our income or our average. LP refuses to acknowledge that we are affected negatively by false reviews. They believe that it's a customers right to say whatever they want!

What more could you ask for?

There has to be some responsibility taken on the part of the client here too.

It's up to you to control what you spend. You could come to me once and speak to 100 other psychics until you run out of money.

How am I to blame for this?

I'm not.

The client is not being forced to do anything. I'm offering a service and it's up to the client to use their own good judgment to decide what it is that they need and what is important to them, up to them to decide when they can't afford anymore.

Go forward with faith and in the knowledge that your actions are all that you can control, the rest is about adapting to what is coming your way.

I think that the important thing is to figure out when it's fradulent vs when they are just wrong

AUTHOR: Butterfly - (U.S.A.)

the difference being that if you stick with *any* psychic long enough-you will find that nobody is 100% accurate all the time, it's just not physically possible.

Now there frauds out there, no doubt. By frauds though, I mean people that claim to be psychic that really aren't. That's where you need to be sure you know the difference. I've seen some good guidelines listed on that and agree totally. If someone wants you to pay a huge amount of money to remove a spell, run. If someone tells you that they are right ALL the time, run. I would say that the best results I have seen come from paying attention over time and going with someone being right the majority of the time, rather than never being wrong here and there.
Just food for thought that I would have walked away from some good readers had I expected them to be perfect. On the other hand, there was actually a reader once that was doing dishes when I talked to her on the phone! I never called her back.

I can say though that I have used some of the readers mentioned a few times and have found some amazingly accurate predictions and insights when I know that I never supplied information to them. One of them even caught a problem with an eye that prevented blindness because she advised having it checked out right away.

Thanx you PsychicAddiction

AUTHOR: Annette - (U.S.A.)

Finally a post that is informative and makes sense. So thank you for taking the time to post your thoughts. I agree with most of what you say.

Unfortunately, by the time most people get here (to ROR) , or any other complaint board, they have already gone through a lot of money,confusion, heartache, shame, and humiliation.

There are so many problems with LivePerson, the first being that their advertising is highly misleading to the average consumer. They make claims that their psychics are accurate, etc...they come up in Google searches with "tired of phony psychics", etc. YET, they cover their butts via their terms of service, which I would bet that 99.9% of the site users never bother to read. In other words, they falsely advertise, and then they disclaim by saying "ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK"....how misleading is that??

Both Kasamba and LivePerson have a grade of "F" at the Better Business Bureau.

Many people, in my opinion, seek the advise of a psychic when they are at a very low point in their lives, very emotional and not being able to make better choices for themselves.

I agree that the ratings system is highly flawed and is a very poor indication of the real qualifications of the reader. The majority of people rate immediately after their session, and, then when time passes, they realize they have been duped, lied to, etc.
This is in addition to the ratings that are padded, and the ratings that have been altered by Management. It is almost impossible to know, especially with insanely over-priced readers who have glowing reviews.

My viewpoints come from my own experience. I am not going to name people here, as I think this makes matters worse. I will concur, with other posters, that the majority of the readings were bogus, off, false, made up, or a collusion of shared information.
I did have a few (less than 3) readings that were somewhat accurate, and, much to my own surprise, I had one, that was very accurate, in terms of events that DID come to pass, time lines that were accurate, etc., and all for $1.00/minute!! That reader is no longer available on the site.

For those who are students of self-improvement and/or spiritual endeavors, you will know that even the most highly TRAINED intuitive is only about 80% correct, so the expectation that there is ONE reader who works for ALL is a misconception.This does not discount the majority, who, from my experiences, are either FRAUDS, or they simply lack any real talent.

Due to the fact that there is no screening process, anyone can create a profile and make any sort of claim.

It appears that Management is far too greedy and they turn the other cheek. It would behoove Management to invest in establishing some effective and REAL criteria, create a better ratings system, and clean up their act. As an outside observer, it appears that they are more interested in defrauding customers, as to appear strong and solvent to their stockholders.

The people who rant on this site, especially the in-wars of the frauds who come on board here and shout and point fingers, should be an indication of how *dirty* this site is.

Has anyone filed with the FTC, especially the lady who (on other threads) seems to have all kinds of evidence(?) against fraudulent readers.

Oh, and for the guy (Joe) who types in all CAPS and shouts at people, have you NO compassion for other human beings? While some of what you say has validity, you come across as someone who never got any attention in life. I'm sorry, but you come off as a sack of hot air. Please stop SHOUTING at people. Your posts are ineffective.

While technology affords us the convenience of reaching out worldwide 24/7/365, gaining (accurate) psychic readings on LP (or any other phone-a-reader site) will lead you to undeserved heartache, confusion and loss of money.

If anyone who has read this and the above post, and it STOPS them from fueling their negative thoughts and behavior, and STOPS them for getting sucked into the addictive, downward spiral, then it was well worth the time and effort.

The benefit of my experience for anyone who would like it

AUTHOR: Psychicaddiction - (U.S.A.)

I have read many sad stories here about how people have been ripped off by phony psychics and wanted to share the experience I have had in the hope that it may help some of them.

I have used many psychics over a number of years and there are a few things that I have learned to look for when deciding who is a fake. I learned these lessons to my own great expense.

1) One of the most common tricks on Liveperson is fake ratings. The way the system works there means that the placement in the listings depends on factors like how many ratings they have, how much money they make and how many clients return.

When you look for an expert, don't just look at the amount of five star ratings they have, look at WHO LEFT THEM. If the expert has for example 2000 ratings and it looks as if over one third of them were left by the SAME CLIENT, then be suspicious. Setting up a client account and paying themselves for a reading is a round about way of paying to get on page one. Once they are there they can attract more clients and charge more. IT DOESNT MEAN THEY ARE ANY GOOD. High Priestess is a good example of this. So is Dr Philip Love. In the case of Dr Love there is also another alarm bell - the fact that an enormous amount of ratings were built up over a relatively short time. When a new expert appears and within months they have overtaken experts who have been there for years that doesnt mean they are good, it means the ratings are questionable. Scroll back through the ratings and see when they started. If the rapid success story looks too good to be true then it probably is.

Further evidence of this is when you ignore all the ratings left by the same person and look at the genuine ratings that remain. Quite often they are 3 and 4 star ratings and if that was all that was there this would only be a 4 star rated reader. Would you still go to them and pay $7 a min if they were only 4 star rated?

The extra ratings also serve as a way to quickly bury the low genuine ratings, so all you see on the first page is a list of five stars. Check it out before you spend your hard earned cash.

If you visit and use this site regularly and get to know the experts you will also notice other things for example qualifications that change. One of the experts I have used recently told me that LP are verifying all 'qualifications' now. All of a sudden, there are a number of experts who claimed be certified with some board or other or in the case of Dr Philip Love he was previously stating that he was a 'Doctor of Divinity'. That claim is NO LONGER on his profile. The only reason an expert would remove something like that is if it was a lie to start with. I seriously regret giving this man any of my cash and I used him several times.

Next we have the gender benders. Again look back over ratings and you will sometimes see a review that says 'she was helpful' or 'thank you Jane'. If the profile picture is a MAN then that doesn't fit does it? This is either people taking over someone else's expert account or a scammer who changes the picture / sex and name, often after they have been exposed here.

Taking the time to really look back and really READ the ratings that have been left can save you a lot of time trouble and loss.

If someone claims that they can 'reunite you with your lover' in 24 hours, ITS NONSENSE. People have free will, it just doesn't happen that way. If someone TRULY had that power they would not be on Liveperson they would be EXTREMELY RICH. There has to be a degree of personal responsibility in all things, you dont go into the grocery store, buy a chicken and expect it to turn into a Turkey on Thanksgiving.

If they say they can 'find your soulmate' again, NONSENSE.

If they want to take you off site and sell you spells for hundreds of dollars RUN FOR THE HILLS!

If they give you a sob story about having a sick relative and needing you to send money for medicine - RUN

If they mention 'Western Union' or 'Paypal' and want you to send them money off site - DO NOT DO IT.

Remember that you dont HAVE to leave a rating. If they are emailing you and asking you to do so, it could be because the reading was bogus and they want you to rate 5 stars BEFORE YOU REALISE - because once you have rated, you cant go back and change it. Only rate if and when YOU ARE HAPPY TO DO SO.

If they email you and say ' please contact me, I have some important news for you' its NONSENSE!!! They deal with dozens of clients every week, they dont suddenly get some 'vision' about you that they need to share right now! What is more likely the case is that business is slow and they are scrolling through the client list trying to bring people in to spend more money.

If the rate they charge varies wildly its another red flag. How would you feel if you paid $10 a min today and saw them at $3.99 tomorrow?

If you leave a low rating and get an abusive response, REPORT THEM TO LP. The rating system is there to warn other clients, dont be bullied into rating falsely incase you upset them, they cant hurt you!

Profiles are another indication of what sort of reading you are going to get, if its full of spelling mistakes and poor grammar , guess what? Thats what your reading will be like!

If they say they have been on TV or Radio - GOOGLE the name and check. If they say they write books - Google it! If they claim to be an author and the profile reads like a 1st grader wrote it then its unlikely that they wrote anything that anyone wanted to read. Anyone can WRITE a book. Selling it is the indication of talent.

If they say they have 30 years experience and their picture looks like a 25 year old then they are LYING.

Beware of the big shot new expert who comes right in at $20 a min. I saw one like this on there a while ago, she appeared claiming to be a top psychic, established on other sites and she was $20 a min. Its pure PSYCHOLOGY. You are supposed to be totally in awe and grateful that they are now on LP and they must be good if they charge that much right? WRONG. Thats an obscene amount to charge. Also, this particular one had 20 ratings and 15 of them were - you guessed it - BY THE SAME CLIENT.

I have also noticed recently that there a lot of teenagers setting up expert accounts. This is purely my personal opinion but if I am paying someone to read for me I prefer a 'grown up'. Psychic Andrew on LP is only 19 years old. There are MANY others, living with parents and sitting in their bedroom playing at 'being psychic'. Gifted or not you have to wonder how well a 19 year old can process the info he gives you, even if he is genuine. I heard that Psychic Andrew was 'outed' by a fellow expert who was very upset to discover his age after going to him.

Also be aware that anyone can learn to read tarot cards. If you can read a book, you can read tarot cards. You just learn what they all mean. Its called generic reading. It doesnt prove that you have any extra ability. Queen of Swords tarot, Ozarks Seer, Quietsound, Gypsy Raven, all classic examples of well practiced passages from a book, no real talent there.

I hope all of this is of some benefit to those of you who still use LP

agreed. great list.

AUTHOR: Not Better Off - (U.S.A.)

I've tried several of the people on your "Not Accurate" list, and I have to say I agree with all of the ones you've listed (with whom I had personal experience).
I was quite sad about Knowing Angel as well. She ended up being wrong with me. She is so so nice, and can make sense (all common sense if she has enough info). I hate to say it, but I wonder now if that's the basis of most of her ratings.

I have to say though that Shining More Love and Oracular Guidance by Mika (he had a slightly different name when I went to him) were both very wrong for me.

Thanks for that list!

Quite a list

AUTHOR: Augusta - (U.S.A.)

That is quite a list of readers that did no work out for you. I have tried some of the ones you mentioned as being inaccurate - and that was the same for me. Very difficult to know based on feedback, and bios, just who to choose, and after a lot of wrong choices, it really wasn't worth it. Feedback is no indicator of how good the reader is unfortunately. I havent tried KnowingAngel whom you mention - but some people said they had success with her - but perhaps it is just that she is nice? It's good you were honest and said that you feel bad saying her predictions were wrong - but it really is helpful to the rest of us to know that she does not work for everyone.
