Psychic Topaz was positively found to be be guilty in asking for and receiving monies "on the side" while working through Psychic Power Network...www.psychicpowernetwork.com (PPN).

Psychic Power Network went through an exhaustive two week investigation and obtained undeniable documented written proof from a US bank that proved this claim beyond the shadow of any doubt.

During the aforementioned investigation, psychic Topaz denied any wrong doing, and so beside her theft and unethical actions, she was also proven to be a liar.

We are in no way stating that psychic Topaz is not psychic, simply that she preyed on a vulnerable individual and took advantage of this individual.

PPN also has received allegations that Topaz was asking for and received another customers social security number and that she accepted money "on the side" through a PayPal account.

As a result of the above, Topaz was terminated from PPN, and is seeking to steal more PPN clients through her own site and that of another psychic site.

Futhermore, "if" she obtained a customers social security number, identity theft by Topaz is in the realm of possibility.

Whether you are or were a client of Topaz, she has proven that she lacks ethics, integrity, is a liar, and is certainly not trustworthy.  Please don't fall for her nonsense, whether she is psychic or not.

We implore you for your own sake, no matter what, to not get into contact with Topaz under any circumstances, and we are seriously considering legal action against her and will legally implicate any company that takes her on.

Thank you for reading the total truth in this unfortunate matter.

In response to: Consumer Comment listed below: "More proof as to PPN's unethical behavior" By Author Anonymous SUBMITTED: Tuesday, April 17, 2012

AUTHOR: Psychic Light - ()

If you look at the 20 to 25 Psychics this "anonymous" person said in her report below in the comments, it doesn't sound like anybody on this network of about 300 Psychics could please her? I think that says more about HER, than it does about her bogus remarks. This client was only so angry with herself for spending thousand of dollars on trying to find what she wanted to hear. She's not angry with these Psychics, she angry with the choices and outcome of HER life. Her comments should be rmoved because none of it makes any sense, and if you read those Psychics feedbacks, they're at 100% and are in the consistent Top 10 every week. She's only made herself look terrible here. Not anyone else.

So Many Lies

AUTHOR: Sherry - (Canada)

First off I have to do this, as I think it is horrible absolutely horrible to say that someone would commit suicide over a psychic reading, quite obviously the person has some mental issues to even consider that.  Kashmire Farber, you have nerve!  I have had readings with you in the past, not many but so off and horrible I can't say enough, when my husband was diagnosed with cancer, you said something was going to happen during surgery, that would be an eye opener and cause complications, none of that happened, in fact the surgery was a success and he is living and alive and well 2 years after the surgery, CANCER FREE! 

Topaz on the other hand was there for me through it all, and actually Topaz caught onto his sickness without me saying a word, and to this day we are grateful to her because she saved his life.  How??  My husband does not go to dr's he was very sick, and I happened to be having a reading with Topaz about a totally different person and not about my husband at all, Topaz up and asked what was wrong with my husband, I was shocked as I never told her anything.  She told me to get him to a dr. as she seen something wrong with the liver area or something to that extent.  It was the lungs, lung cancer, maybe wrong organ, but she still detected something.  Of course I got scared but she assured me he would be okay.  He was okay after the surgery.

You and 3 other psychics from this site had him dead within the year.  So please before you go accusing someone of curses and causing someone to commit suicide, look at your own readings, and how wrong you really were, that was big to me, and yes, I know that you are really not allowed to talk about health, but you still did and did a sh**ty job of it. 

I have read with Topaz for 3 years almost, and I have to say she has helped me and my family in many areas, and NOT ONCE did she mention a curse, in fact it was through horrible psychics on PPN that would say such stuff to me about curses, and stuff like burying a ribbon in the ground to get rid of a spirit or an ex, give me a break for god's sake, if that isn't witchcraft what is.....If I want to get rid of something I sure as hell aint going to start pouring salt on my floor and burning sage and have the cops be called because I have made my neighborhood smelling like I am smoking pot!  I simply open the door and good bye to them.  I mentioned these things to Topaz and she said to ignore them, it's wierd stuff and we phone for readings not hocus pocus.  Topaz is not into that, and if she were I am sure I would have heard it from her when I first started reading with her.

Suicide is huge, and it's not a word to be taken lightly and written so freely, slander is what it is.  This was a dead beat story two years ago, why start up again after almost 2 years??? Need clients Kashmire?  2 sites aren't enough I guess.  Pathetic how quick one is to judge when their own doorstep has alot of rubbish on it as well.

Good night!

From Kashmire Farber PPN Network #62693

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

I am Kashmire Farber of PPN Network.  I do work for another network but under both contracts I am legally unable to disclose in either capacity any work that I do outside of that particular network nor would I disclose that to any client.  Each network has their own established clients, pay schedules, rules, hours, etc.

I was involved with the investigation with Topaz as 15 of my personal clients verified that she was telling them that they were cursed and that they needed to contact her on her private line, pay her in excess of over 400 dollars to remove the curse.  One of my clients said she had a suicide attempt because of the information Topaz had given to her.  Topaz was highly unethical and did not have a high accuracy rate to her information at this time.  She also treated the clients harshly and had a shifty demeanor that left her clients feeling helpless and hopeless.  This was due to personal matters in her life that were seen as circumstances beyond her control. 

This profession rears a code of spiritual ethics that I not only personally uphold but I also know of many psychics in this industry uphold as well.  As a psychic we cannot be successful without upholding a code of spiritual ethics.  If we did not have the gifts we would not have clients.

Psychics all have their own unique gifts/style and they are used/delivered in a different ways.  I personally have all of the metaphysical gifts that work in unison to provide clarity to my client.  While I am reading for a client one of my unique gifts is to clean and clear the chakras, transmute lower level energy to a higher frequency and recycle it back to the client.  This happens automatically and through feedback from my client, I know what I am doing.

I am very grateful to both of the networks I work for.  They are both very good to me and I have been working for PPN for almost 3 years now.

I wanted to share what I know about Topaz to be true.

Psychics

AUTHOR: Pinky - (United Kingdom)

I have used PPN and yes some advisors block if they do not like what they read. As a client who has had readings from hundreds ( including Topaz) at PPN and many other sites,  I have come to the conclusion that going to a psychic is not really a smart step to take. Of course it can be a vent/catharsis/offload but absolutely no one is able to predict the future, not even Topaz - even perchance one had a few hits, one interpreted it as being 'real', 'true'  through one's own lens.  Either it is enactment of unfinished business or your expectations moulded your reality. So I can only suggest that clients deal with their issues rather than throwing thousands doen the drain. Ladies - be smart. Why do you need to know about the future  with someone who is unavailable, emotionally or whatever? You can master your own destiny. I asked about my career and they all got it wrong. As the saying by Goethe goes life begins when you begin to trust yourself.  I have heard of a psychic in the local community who had a rare gift and never did it for a living. Those are the ones that may have a special power; but it does not really matter.  So please stop this discussion. Its ridiculous. I would like to see  strong government regulatory control over all psychics' activities.

More proof as to PPN's unethical behavior.

AUTHOR: Anonymous - (United States of America)

I'm writing this post on behalf of Sherry (thank you for sharing your story) and all the others who have called numerous advisors on this website and wasted thousands getting the run around by people who didn't know what they were talking about.

I was recently asked to recant a feedback that I left for Karena Townsend and was offered 15 minutes (the highest I've ever seen for one of these offers) all because they want only positive feedbacks on their site.  I don't believe that ANY of these so-called advisors (except of course, Topaz) have been tested prior to joining the network.  In fact, I heard from the horses mouth herself that she was NOT tested before joining the site.

I'm sure my feedback was or will soon be removed anyway regardless of my declining the offer. I find it highly unethical that Click4Advisor/PPN offers free minutes to remove honest, truthful and unbiased feedback that doesn't violate any terms of service agreement just to protect the "reputation" of an advisor. Why don't you just offer a monetary refund? Perhaps the incalculable loss you'd sustain from having to dish out funds on account of unscrupulous readers would be enough to put your company under?  

While we're on the subject of unscrupulous readers, I thought I'd list some of them here:

Elaina Jo (fired, mercifully)
Raphael (also recently fired)
Tulsi Ray (as confusing as she is unprofessional)
Valentina Rose
Robyn Baxter
Blue Star
Iris
David Blackmon
Laura of the Light
Paige
The Grand Charlatan...er, Charlot
Readings with Sidney
Divine Visionary
Atrisha
Calister
Dianne Barrington (she actually admitted she withheld the truth from me because she wasn't sure I could handle it.)
Olivia Seas
Karena Townsend (the subject of this email)
Mercedes Bainbridge 

The list goes on and on. 

In any case, I am 100% done with PPN and asked that my account be deleted.  My advisor was unfortunately unavailable when I was having a bit of a personal crisis so I used a 5 free I already had and added it to a paid call (not much, thank God. $15).  How many people spend thousands, even tens of thousands being jerked around by these people! I'll go out on a limb to say 99.99% of the psychics out there are phonies.  Out of the hundreds (yes, HUNDREDS) I've spoken to, I only found one.  And she's the subject of this unfortunate report.  What a pathetic excuse to slander the reputation of someone whose life's work is to help people.  Not only did Topaz never ask me for money on PPN but many times when I had no money she offered to help me for free.  (Obviously this was after she was fired from PPN.  She never, EVER asked for my phone number.)  Anyone who doubts her ability can call for yourself, her site is posted numerous times on this thread.

This is the last post I'll ever make on this subject.  I'm moving forward from this terrible experience and am never looking back.

PPN? Psychic Pocket Network

AUTHOR: Sherry - (Canada)

I have found out the hard way and unfortunately I was very very stupid at the amount of money I have spent on this site over the years, just to get readings that never ever turned out!  I mean that in all sincerity, do I have anyone to blame but myself, no, I don't, I fell for the act and the Oh I care for you emails, yeah they care alright, when you only spend 15 dollars on one reading as opposed to 100.00 or more.

I have been on this site long enough to know that if your reading hasn't worked it's because of "Free Will" or the person can't be read anymore because they are so scattered in their brain, or they just didn't see that coming.  Please give me a break, I am not saying that psychics are God, very very very far from it, they are there to guide you and hopefully give you the truth.  I have been with many psychics over the years, not as strongly as I have for the past year and a half because of personal issues, and PPN was who I was entrusting, only to find out of the hundreds of readers they have (I never spoke with all of them), I have had luck with maybe a small handful, and that handful have left.   The good ones never stay, or they have gotten rid of very very good ones, accusing of trying to get other clients on the side.  Meanwhile since the "Topaz" episode, I have been consulted by at least 4 others asking to come to their own website, have reported these ones, only to see they are still on the site????? Hellloooo, I guess it's true at every work place, not all staff are treated the same.  I would love to name a few right now, but will not do that as I have more class than the staff at PPN, and I refuse to name any names, other than Topaz.

Now, as I mentioned earlier I have received many readings over the years, and I will say I have never had such good results and so many results as I have with this woman.  She was given a very bad rap as far as I am concerned.  I will say this however; what goes around comes around, and I notice the site is not half as busy as what it used to be. Karma is a bitch and it may take a while but she does come around,,,,trust me on that one!  Now again I am not saying Topaz is God, there have been things that have not come to fruition, but very few, and if I would have left it up to Psychic Pocket Network adivisors, I would have been single ages ago and given up on a very good man.  Topaz directed me in the right direction and I have had validation with this man in the same room I might add, on things Topaz told me.  There was an instant Topaz believed something about this man, and stated what she felt then asked me to ask him about this subject.  I got chills as this man said the exact same words Topaz had just recited.  She had no way of knowing that, it amazed me, and she amazes him as well. 

I have had more experiences on this site as well, such as having a reading for months with a particular reader only to find after months later and many dollars later, the reading will totally change.  Or time ranges, what a joke, now I do understand time is hard to do, BUT it's extended every month, lmao, of course, because they want you to come back so they can give you another line for 15.00 a pop. (Timing is one of Topaz's attributes, she's awesome!  Her working with numbers is amazing to me, and alot of times she doesn't need cards she will do it from her own mind!  Very gifted!)  It's disgusting and ridiculous, as I said it took me awhile, but I found out the hard way unfortunately, but thank God I never went broke like some, or wanted to commit suicide because of ridiculous readings.  I stick with one now and that would be Topaz, I get results and it costs me alot less, plus she is a good friend! 

I am smarter than to lose my belongings over people pretending to know your life just so they can have a "piece of the pie" so to speak.

For you consumers out there, I have had enough experience to know this:  If they ask you for feedback, not a good sign, Topaz never ever asked me for feedback while on that site, plus I don't give feedback freely, what are you supposed to say before predictions happen, "They were nice", good reading, that just kills me when I read that because that is not what we as consumers are looking for, we are looking for results!  I will put feedback when I get results, needless to say I haven't participated in alot of feedback on this site. 

Also beware of the ones who keep talking and talking and talking and just before that 7 minutes is up, oh do I have something to tell you, or you should know about something, they want you to add money.  It's a farce, a true gifted reader will read, and ask is there anything else if not I don't want to waste your time or money, I may have heard that twice on that network, and I have talked to many.

Also it's good to know other people who use the network as I found out from others that a certain psychic on there has been giving the same damn lines to us, imagine to find out your bf who has never been married or with anyone may have a child and their own family doesn't even know, heard this so called psychic has told a few people the same thing.  If I didn't know my bf I would have confronted him and probably broken up with him, that is huge, but I know him and his family and laughed when I got off of the phone and said never again.  This one fabricated big stories for me last year as well.

I also learned that to become a top psychic advisor (as we all want to talk to the top ones right), doesn't take much.  Beware of that as it's the amount of time you spend on the phone, it's not very many minutes, so if a psychic knows how to story tell and get your hopes up, and keeps you on the phone for probably 75.00 or less that psychic will be a top advisor the following week, just because you were the one suckered into hearing fabrications.  I am sorry, this may sound very very blunt, but it sickens me to death to have heard so many stories from this site from psychics and clients alone, how some clients have gone broke, only because some people don't go out and work the way we do, and then wait for our phone call to make them call over and over again until that last credit card is filled up and you are in a terrible financial disaster.  To me if you don't know the answer, then say so, or simply say I am sorry, but I am not connecting with you, none of this free will shit and stories about "how this happened to me" or an hour spiel that never comes through.

As I said I am not speaking for every psychic as I never talked to all, (and personally I don't think there are that many gifted psychics on this earth), if that were so, what is God's purpose here and I don't think he would give this gift to that many.  I truly believe there are very few "Real" ones out there.

I have had luck with a few on PPN, but unfortunately, not as I did with Topaz.  This was not put here to give Topaz a boost as she doesn't need that, her clients are all very happy with her and she is very busy as always.  This is to inform the consumer about this site and I am sure there are others, because I feel very bad for the ones who can be trapped under the spell so to speak, it can be an addiction trust me.  I am just glad I realized before I "fell", and I thank the Good Lord above for that, and Topaz as well for being a true friend and a very gifted advisor. 

Thank you and God Bless!

#8 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Are you kidding me?!!!!

AUTHOR: NightMoves - (United States of America)

Dear Al,

I am an ex-independent contractor of PPN.  I cannot believe the things I have seen you write about this reader Topaz.  As I read all the postings, I particularly loved your wife Leslie's postings....you need to take her keyboard away, she made you and the company look VERY bad.

I personally had no problem with PPN.  I worked hard, loved my clients, and got my paycheck on time.  I left on my own, the need for my services were not terminated.

You do not have a business without readers, PPN gives clients and readers a vehicle to come together.  My bond with my clients is sacred.  You cannot prevent clients from following their favorite reader.  Clients leaving PPN to search out their favorite advisors is a risk you take, for the advantage you have of only hiring independent contracts that have no benefits or even the guarantee of minimum wage.  If you felt Topaz acted unethically, you should have canceled her services....period.  You actually helped clients find her!

Also, I saw lies in some of your statements (I am psychic, and won't enumerate them, but this one made me laugh)....You stated, I believe, you work 14 hours a day.  Since you have dispatch women, you aren't a reader, the phone system is taken care of by a third party company, etc.  What pray tell do you do in these 14 hours a day?  Many things you said made you sound like a flim-flam-man.

I wish you could have asked my psychic advice about this situation, because I feel you lost clients, I would have highly advised against it.  In any event...take care.

To anyone reading this report

AUTHOR: Anonymous - (United States of America)

Do NOT believe the garbage on this report! It is motivated and perpetuated by pure jealousy. All these negative comments are nothing but readers getting mad because Topaz' line was the busiest on the site with sometimes 30 deep in the queue. She is 100% the real deal and has NEVER asked for a dime in the year and a half we spoke.

To the person who ratted her out: I know your deal. You will get yours for "turning someone in" for doing the same exact thing you do on a daily basis. I know for a fact you take people on the side for real. Topaz' character is above reproach, which is more than I can say for you. Shame on you for being jealous of her because of her talents. I'm so glad I was able to find Topaz on my own, as have other clients of hers. I will NEVER use PPN again. The lot of you are a bunch of phonies and just hating on the best d**n advisor of any line, anywhere.

Drama in PPN Land . . .

AUTHOR: Anonymous - (United States of America)

This is quite the drama going on in PPN land. I think I have pretty much read through all the connected articles. The thought came to me to check out who PPN really is and just how legal they are. Turns out maybe "not so much" - decide for yourself, whether you are a client or an employee. As I read through all the drama on all the connected blogs - here are the companies that PPN gets their employees from and possibly their web site services from:

Buckwood Communications

(Might be hard to find how they are connected other than they were included in the blackball email.) 

Go to this corporate search link:  http://nvsos.gov/sosentitysearch/corpsearch.aspx

search for each company individually to see their "status"

Both companies have had their corporation status permanently revoked by the state of Nevada for failure to pay their fees and/or taxes for 5 years for more. If you work for these guys - you may want to consider working for someone else. According to the government site they can never be reinstated.

Lack of good judgement is whats really at the core of these blogs. Blackballing, empty legal threats, name calling very unprofessional. So far as I can see - the only possible legal actions that could take place are against Al / PPN for blackballing a former employee and trying to intimidate another business from taking her on.

I certainly would not do business with these guys and would hope their clients and their employees check them out thoroughly before continuing with them.

Good luck to all of you . . .

AUTHOR: Leslie - (United States of America)

One would not have to fight fire with fire, if the concerned parties showed any class, were ethical and were people of unquestioned integrity.  I place you among them too, but you may be too full of yourself to even realize it.
 
Al and I are people of quality and would never stoop to the depths of dishonesty that has taken place with the Topaz situation and on this venue.

We are also individuals, who do not normally resort to the type of posts that have appeared here to defend ourselves, except when unscrupulous people, who do not care how low they sink, go ahead and steal and lie, continuously lie, and try their best to portray PPN in a dark light, all in a total and obvious and desperate attempt to save their own skin.
 
When this occurs, we take a firm stand for justice...plain and simple, honey.
 
Take a gander at the post from a "Paula" above.  She did not initially do the proper thing, but at least she came forward and admitted her mistake, (along with a few others) and we obviously very much appreciate and respect her and their decision for doing so, and certainly hope that this was a lesson learned.

Topaz

AUTHOR: Paula - (United States of America)

I'm sorry that I have to admit this and my name is a made up one to stay confidential but Topaz also solicited me for money while with PPN. PPN has the written information of this that I provided for them over the weekend. I just could not live with myself comfortably if I held back the information.
Some time ago Topaz had let me know that her home had suffered damage during a weather related condition and if I sent her money to help her she would also give me readings.
Well I did send her money more times than I care to remember and I'm ashamed to say I did receive readings from her privately which I never should have done. I guess that I just felt sorry for her but now I wish that I had never done this and I apologized to PPN too.
I've heard from PPN that I am the third person to come forward and I think there was another person too but I'm not sure.
Again PPN please accept my deepest and very sincere apologies.
That's all I have to say. Thank you.

Beth your money would be better spent by enrolling in an English course at your nearest community college rather than giving another dime to any of these charlatans.

This entire report is ridiculous.  Ethics, honor, integrity?  From charlatans who profess to have psychic abilities?  Give us all a break!!!

The only accurate predictions they make is that they will eventually find someone uneducated and desperate enough to part with thier cash.

Spend your money on education Beth-you'll get a far greater return on your investment.  An education will stay with you and serve you well throughout your life.  A good command of the language will open opportunities for you and any children you might have.

Next time you feel it necessary to "chat" with one of these charlatans, ask the psychic when he/she is going to take the James Randi Educational Foundation 1 MILLION DOLLAR challange and PROVE he/she has verifiable psychic abilities.

Yes, you are classless and down right nasty, I might add!!!! You have proved it numerous times on your posts on here. No one is trying to bait you, so please get over yourself!!!! How does sticking up for a company entail degrading and trying to defile someone's character?? When that person has never said anything bad about you or the company??? If you were sticking up for PPN and Al, then you would have stated how the company is a "great company" and how Al is a "honorable man" and you are sure that he acted in good faith in the decision he has made in regards to terminating Topaz. You see that is how someone with class would stick up for their company. There was no name calling of any sort, which you resorted to, which just proves your ill will intent. When you become God, then you can cast the first stone.........till then be quiet and go have a seat!!!!!! Someone, with so much maturity and class doesn't come on a public site and slander someone's name, especially when that person has done nothing to you. Calling someone a liar, thief, two face....how mature of you!!!!!! You're a disgrace to that company and yes karma is *****!!! What goes around will come around, your day will come!!!! Like I said, who died and made you God?? You're so desperate in trying to justify your actions on here, that everyone here that is either voicing their opinions against PPN and sticking up for Topaz.... you automatically thinks its Topaz.

I, like many others, including Al, stand by my principles. Without ethical principles and integrity, we are NOTHING but misguided and selfish individuals.
To employee, I very strongly doubt that you are a psychic at all, much less with PPN. If you were, you would KNOW WITHOUT EXCEPTION that psychics are not perfect, only God is, and that you yourself would not know who certain people are just by anonymous posts.

As a reader on PPN I am taking much risk in posting here. However, the truth must be known. If Grand Charlot was a truly gifted psychic she would already know Topaz has NOT posted here. I can see clearly the motivation here. It is apparently jealousy. PPN has put their neck out and is attempting to make Topaz a scapegoat. The monies she received were unrelated to PPN and they know this. Instead due to much pressure from fellow readers and clients of questionable motives, they have decided to take to this public pulpit to further slander her character. I garantee 100% of the readers could be terminated due to violation of the policy of receiving monies on the side. Anyone in this business knows this. Why put her name out there? Why put her banking institution out there? So confident in your beliefs, Grand Charlot? Put YOUR name out there along with the name of YOUR financial institution! Yes, that's what I thought! No comment! I see through all of the games here and frankly it turns my stomach! The truth will come out one way or the other even if I have to call her myself.

First of all Bossy, if you actually live in Tennessee (of which I very highly doubt), you would know that "Memephis" is spelled Memphis. The "e" on the keyboard is not even close to the "p."Yes, standing up for rightful justice is something that I advocate very strongly, and in previous posts I stated the truth, as I very much know it to be the truth, without any doubts. Remember Bossy, I've seen the proof, have personally spoken with other clients who have verified the same, and I also know for a fact that she fraudulently impersonated another psychic to PPN clients, while she used her Topaz name back in 2008. There is no morality in any of this. So, its not just a coincidence dear. Not by a long shot.

Hypocrite? No, not at all. I just chose at the time, not to respond more than I did to an immature individual with something more to gain here than meets the eye. Catch my drift?As far as Topaz not saying one bad word, there are so many anonymous and abstract posts here, that it is very possible that she has already typed posts. Do you or I know for sure? Of course not, (well in your case, ...) but its highly possible.

You're also not giving me a taste of anything, except for spewing out pure unadulterated garbage. In all of my years with PPN, has anyone to my knowledge, ever reported anything unethical in regard to me. That's because I am ethical, I love and respect my clients, and they feel the same way about me. While I was hospitalized recently for a stroke, I was so deeply touched by the massive outpouring of prayers and love from these very same clients, that I also believed it helped me through my crisis, as Al took the time and read each and every e-mail to me, every single day.
Have a nice day, my dear.

Everyone Makes Mistakes

AUTHOR: pixi - (USA)

Even if years ago, Topaz used a different name, frankly, it doesn't matter. No one is perfect, everyone makes mistakes. She gets results, and that is what matters. She truly has the gift, and even if she used multiple names at one point, in no way does that mean that she solicited money from her clients or "stole" anything from them. In fact, she was the only advisor who told me to cut back on the calling. Not because she didn't value me as a client, but because she could sense that I was spending too much money on the network and she was worried. If she truly was greedy and wanted all this money, then why would she tell me to cut back? She would have just not said anything and happily just let me talk to her everyday and blow through my savings.

I can honestly say that this woman was THE BEST on the network. In fact, she deserved to be paid more. She could have easily earned so much more at other sites but she chose to stay at PPN because SHE WANTED TO HELP PEOPLE. It wasn't about the money, it was about helping people. Her clients knew this, and were grateful. I know that I was. She gets results, and stays five steps ahead of the game. Unlike other so called psychics on the network that feed you a bunch of BS, she calls it like she sees it and will never tell you something just because it's what you want to hear. In fact, she is literally only one of three psychics on the network that have passed my tests. Additionally, she ENCOURAGED me to test her after I told her that I had tested her when she could not pick up on the fake person I was asking about. There are only two other psychics on the network that I use, but even they do not compare to Topaz when it comes to getting results. When she says something will happen, THEY HAPPEN.

If she was truly such an unethical advisor, why are so many people trying to find her? It doesn't make sense. There are other people on the network who also have the gift (granted, not as talented as her), but are so abrasive and UNETHICAL that people won't call them. I won't name names, but there are a few advisors on the network that, during my calls with them, have told me that I can get readings on the side at a discounted price, and proceeded to ask about other psychics that I speak with and got mad when I wouldn't reveal the information. No matter how psychic these individuals are, I would never call them back. If Topaz were truly unethical, then her clients would not be seeking her out despite her abilities. She has never approached me for side readings, bashed other advisors, or even asked about anyone else that I spoke to. It is her combination of talent and ETHICS that makes her clients reach out, despite PPN's attempts to tarnish her character. 

Please stop invading her life and leave this poor woman alone. Please.

To all

AUTHOR: Samantha - (Canada)

I have been a PPN customer for close to six years. PPN, Al and their customer service has always treated me with professionalism, respect and a great deal of good will. I don't remember the other name that she used, but I was one of the customers who had called Topaz when she also used a different name at the same time back a few years ago. From her voice, I was just about positive that it was Topaz, because I had spoken with her a few times before this. But, when I asked her if she was Topaz, she flat out denied it. I can say that when I spoke with Topaz as Topaz that she was okay, but after I reported the fact that I believed she was trying to use two different names at the same time, and it was confirmed by PPN customer service, I very strongly felt that I could not trust her and never called her again. I had wanted to try out a psychic that I thought I had never spoken with before, and I was lied to by Topaz. This call I think lasted for about 9 or 10 minutes, and PPN reimbursed me by replacing the time that I had paid for. From my years of being a customer with PPN, I can say that they, as I have experienced, have one of the most trusting and ethical sites and I love the fact that I can afford their low price and I very much appreciate all of the free minutes that they give out. I admit that I have tried other sites, but in the end, I've always come back home to PPN. I too received the original e-mail from PPN regarding Topaz, and although it was a very strongly worded e-mail, I've spoken with Al on a few occasions and know that he is very passionate when it concerns psychics not playing fair. Frankly, since Topaz had lied to me and then years later, I found out what else she had done, I personally was not surprised by it. She was generously given a second chance and for whatever reason, it seems that she did not fully appreciate it. I'm not looking for responses, but I myself personaly witnessed her lie and thought that I would simply post this, as it is all together true.

Hello,

For those of you, who are trying to get in contact with Topaz go www.absolutepsychic.com and send an email to any of the email addresses listed on there and ask how can you get in contact with Topaz. They will let you know beacuse that is how I found her. I know how you guys feel because I truly missed her too but I found her....Yay!!!!

To Grand Charlot, I see you have nothing better to do, then to come on here and try to bash Topaz. Question, what has she done to you?? Other than, gaining way more clients than you ever have on that network. She has never said anything bad about you. Your attitude is disgusting and lacks professionalism. You just got out of the hospital but yet you have time to come on here and try to bash someone and act as if you're " Holier Than Thou"; instead of trying to get better. Give me a break!!!! You are not the owner of the company, so what does have to do with you?? Anyone, who so claims that they follow Jesus  and act as if they are so holy, would not display such acts as you did. I can understand your frustration, jealousy and why you are mad. Its only because even after you guys have tried to bash and slander her name.......people are still defending her and still looking for her. Topaz is a sweetheart and a person with a good heart. I get why you are jealous because she would have about 25 clients day in and day out waiting for her in her que and you were more than likely always available, lmao. Why dont you worry about your clients and mind your business??!!! Go brush up on your psychic skills because they weren't that great, when I had a reading with you to begin with!!!!

To Al, you as an owner lack alot of professionalism and integrity. You have a right to fire whomever you please, "if" you feel they did not follow your guidelines. But, the way you handle the situation was classless and dispicable. To me, anyone that feels that they are right would not display what you have done but they would let the proof speak for itself.

Simply to clarify

AUTHOR: PPN Owner - (USA)

Charlot and I spoke today, and even though I of course, appreciate what she has written, along with her very strong and ethical convictions, we agreed that it would not be a good idea to post the documentation from Bank of America in regard to Toaz receiving monies outside of the company.  Beside this, Topaz has already been faxed the BOA letter.  So I do not feel that it would serve a useful purpose, other than to continue this thread, and the letter does show her real last name, and even though she did what she did, I do not want to invade her privacy in this particular manner, which I'm sure she would appreciate.

To answer a few issues that have recently been brought up:

1) Feedback Guidelines - There are guidelines that have been in place for a long time.  If a feedback breaks a guideline, and is mostly brought to our attention by a compliance officer from a law firm that is contracted by one of the company's that we compensate, it will be removed. Our family of psychics does not have the authority to remove any feedback, although at times, some might feel very strongly that they did not deserve the feedback, and if it breaks a guideline, it too shall be removed.  There have also been some cases where a feedback did not technically break a guideline, but were removed too.  An example of this, is if a client leaves a negative feedback, and within it, checks off that they would not call the psychic back, but then goes ahead and does so anyway on a paid or free call, that feedback would most likely be removed because of an obvious contradiction.  Finally, many positive feedback are also removed for the fact that they break guidelines too.

Just FYI: Here are the policy guidelines:

1. Feedback mentions any personal information about an Advisor, including actual name, email address, phone number or mailing address.
2. Feedback is provided by a User who registered incomplete or fraudulent contact information and cannot be contacted by Click4Advisor.
3. Feedback is contrived and/or provided by an advisor for his or herself. This includes the use of alternative Account names and/or third party conspirators.
4. Feedback promotes another website or includes any links, hyperlinks, or URLs.
5. Feedback refers to or promotes another Advisor, User or non-member Advisor.
6. Feedback unintentionally left or accidentally left on the wrong Advisor by a User. User must confirm such mistake.
7. Feedback uses offensive, vulgar or profane, including any adult material or content.
8. Feedback comments refer to services that are not covered in the Advisor Profile description of the particular Advisor.
9. Feedback left by a single User multiple times for a single Advisor with the intent to damage the business of or to simply harass the Advisor.
10. Feedback left by a member who called an advisor solely to have the opportunity to leave negative feedback with no intention of seeking the advisor's services.
11. Feedback comments only or partially in regard to Click4Advisor or Click4Advisor services, and not fully in regard to the Advisor.
12. Feedback comments that explicitly and directly intend to dissuade other Users from using the services of an advisor. (Feedback comments should detail only the Users personal experience with the particular Advisor and allow other Users to decide themselves whether or not to contact an Advisor.)

Simply to clarify

AUTHOR: PPN Owner - (USA)

Charlot and I spoke today, and even though I of course, appreciate what she has written, we agreed that it would not be a good idea to post the documentation from Bank of America in regard to Toaz receiving monies outside of the company.  Beside this, Topaz has already been faxed the BOA letter.  So I do not feel that it would serve a useful purpose, other than to continue this thread, and the letter does show her real last name, and even though she did what she did, I do not want to invade her privacy in this particular manner, which I'm sure she would appreciate.

To answer a few issues that have recently been brought up:

1) Feedback Guidelines - There are guidelines that have been in place for a long time.  If a feedback breaks a guideline, and is mostly brought to our attention by a compliance officer from a law firm that is contracted by one of the company's that we compensate, it will be removed. Our family of psychics does not have the authority to remove any feedback, although at times, some might feel very strongly that they did not deserve the feedback, and if it breaks a guideline, it too shall be removed.  There have also been some cases where a feedback did not technically break a guideline, but were removed too.  An example of this, is if a client leaves a negative feedback, and within it, checks off that they would not call the psychic back, but then goes ahead and does so anyway on a paid or free call, that feedback would most likely be removed because of an obvious contradiction.  Finally, many positive feedback are also removed for the fact that they break guidelines too.

Just FYI: Here are the policy guidelines:

1. Feedback mentions any personal information about an Advisor, including actual name, email address, phone number or mailing address.
2. Feedback is provided by a User who registered incomplete or fraudulent contact information and cannot be contacted by Click4Advisor.
3. Feedback is contrived and/or provided by an advisor for his or herself. This includes the use of alternative Account names and/or third party conspirators.
4. Feedback promotes another website or includes any links, hyperlinks, or URLs.
5. Feedback refers to or promotes another Advisor, User or non-member Advisor.
6. Feedback unintentionally left or accidentally left on the wrong Advisor by a User. User must confirm such mistake.
7. Feedback uses offensive, vulgar or profane, including any adult material or content.
8. Feedback comments refer to services that are not covered in the Advisor Profile description of the particular Advisor.
9. Feedback left by a single User multiple times for a single Advisor with the intent to damage the business of or to simply harass the Advisor.
10. Feedback left by a member who called an advisor solely to have the opportunity to leave negative feedback with no intention of seeking the advisor's services.
11. Feedback comments only or partially in regard to Click4Advisor or Click4Advisor services, and not fully in regard to the Advisor.
12. Feedback comments that explicitly and directly intend to dissuade other Users from using the services of an advisor. (Feedback comments should detail only the Users personal experience with the particular Advisor and allow other Users to decide themselves whether or not to contact an Advisor.)
13. Negative feedback left by a User, who had previously spoken with a specific Advisor, wherein the Advisor gave the User different information than was previously given. (In the realm of psychic readings, readings can and do change often, due to many circumstances, including the free will of others.)

2) Changing the customer name to a transaction ID number for all feedbacks - was recently implemented because it was, let's just say, causing too many unnecessary problems, both for customers and psychics alike.  This was the only reason that we chose to do so.  Some may agree and some may disagree, but we felt that it was a fair solution.  The customer that leaves a feedback will know it is their feedback, and only the psychic that the feedback was left for will know who the feedback came from by matching up the transaction ID numbers within their system account or just simply knowing the customer from any specific information that the customer typed out.  Customers may also check/compare the transaction ID in their accounts too.

I see Charlot has nothing better to do!!!!! This is to Swan also...

AUTHOR: Boss Lady - (United States of America)

To Charlot, I see  you have nothing better to do. You just came out of the hospital and yet you have time to come on here and bash someone else as if you are "Holier Than Thou". Give me a break!!!! Worry about getting better and instead your desperate ploy to try and bash Topaz. You are not the owner of the company, so why does this concern you???!!! She must of been a threat to you because look what you have resorted to and mind you she has never said anything about you. But, you have the time to come on here and go off as if she did something to you......YOU'RE PATHETIC and LAME!!!!! Its ok , I understand why you are fustrated, mad and jealous because if after you guys desperate ploy to make her look bad and slander her name, people are still looking for her and defending her on here. I can get why you are jealous, her line was always full of clients damn near 25 ppl on line waiting for her day in and out, comapred to you being available most of time, lmao!!!!! Worry about your own clients and mind your business!!! Go have a seat and brush up on your psychic skills because you weren't that great to begin with, when I had a reading with you.

To Al, as an owner of a company, you lack alot of professionalism. Its your company and you have the right to fire whomever you please ,"if" you feel guidlelines were not followed. But the way you went about it was classless and dispicable. To me, anyone that feels they are right in any situaition does not resort to what you did.......they let the proof speak for itself. Honorable men do not resort to this kind of garbage, you have displayed.

To Swan and whoever else that cant find Topaz, look at one of Faith's previous post on here and she lists her email on one of them. Email Faith and she will tell you how to get in contact with Topaz. Hope this helps.....if it doesnt, write back on here and see what we can do to get in contact with her.

And, I can play this game too for the duration..

AUTHOR: Charlot - (United States of America)

It is just amazing to me just how many people (or few people, if you catch my drift) have a name attached to their posts.
Yes, I am a natural-born psychic, clairvoyant, clairaudient and clairsentient, but I do not walk on water, nor am I God.  Are you?
"If" I am psychic, I'd know who you are?  Cut the unmitigated crap.
I also happen to know for a fact that back in 2008, when Topaz first started with PPN, a few months later, she did not build up a following as quickly as she wished, so what did she do? She falsely applied for and used (had reinstated) an inactive psychics name at the same time that she was using the Topaz name. How's that for her ethics?
She duped people (customers) into believing that she was someone else AND Topaz at the same time!
Al knows this because I am the person who reported this to him in the first place, learning this from numerous customers. It was verified, PROVEN and her services should have been released way back then. But Al, had/has a good heart and he and the company that compensated her gave her a second chance. I PERSONALLY, WOULD NOT HAVE.
Al, I know that you want to move on and get away from this total garbage, but you might want to think of posting that letter from Bank of America, so PPN customers will know for sure that Topaz (aka Lori) did fraudently accept monies from a customer, and that she CERTAINLY DOES NOT WALK ON WATER.  FAR FROM IT, NO MATTER WHAT ANY POSTER HERE REPLIES.
I have not stated all that I've stated here for personal glory. I certainly have enough of a faithful following from years upon years on PPN. I have stated what I have because I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT IT IS TRUE FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE, NOT HORSE CRAP HERESAY.
If, as a client, Topaz has helped you, then good for you. I truly mean this.  However, she has also shown herself POSITIVELY to be TWO FACED. THIS IS A DOCUMENTED FACT THAT CAN IN NO WAY BE DENIED.

AUTHOR: Anonymous - (Canada)

Thank you Miss Anonymous.  I think I know who you are, and I have followed your story as well.  Miss the feedbacks got to know Topaz's clients that way and it was so neat to see the progress on how everybody was faring.  I remember a client of Topaz's that made a comment in August of last year, I cried for this girl as I was so happy for her and Topaz.  She finally got to be with her beau, after a year or so with Topaz telling her that they would be together, and this client stressed how much she really didn't believe her and how she really didn't think Topaz was right.  Topaz told her that it would happen at the end of August 2010.

August 30th, 2010 this client was celebrating as her and her beau were together.  I was SO HAPPY FOR HER!  You too, I've seen many things that you doubted, but happened.

All in all it just goes to show what a good psychic Topaz really is, and she doesn't feed you bs or WHAT YOU WANT TO HEAR,,,,she's good at what she does,,,she knows her cards...

I miss her feedback, but this will do....lol,,,we were all like a little family. 

Btw, just have to comment on her "Infectious Laugh" as well,,,when she would laugh that little giggle it just turned everything around,,it made you smile, and it was nice to hear that laugh, even WHEN YOU DOUBTED HER,,,,she was the best!!!!!!!!


WE LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU TOPAZ ;'(

What The???

AUTHOR: Anonymous - (Canada)

First off, this is really gotten out of hand.  I have been a client for quite some time on this network,,,there are MANY GOOD psychics on this network,,,however; there are some pretty poor ones as well. 

I am not putting the network down at all, (there are things I don't agree with and do agree with the above as to why negative feedback is always deleted).  How are other clients supposed to know that they are wasting there money?  Yes, alot of psychics read differently and for each individua, some they can't read, because there is no connection.  But a GOOD PSYCHIC SUCH AS TOPAZ,,,,can read for almost anyone I do believe.

I feel sorry for this woman, everyone has bashed her name (except for the clients), and not once has she been on here, Topaz, Topaz, Topaz, Topaz, Topaz, Topaz,,,,Topaz,,,,I'll be like Faith here and blah, blah, blah, blah,,,,,I understand the issue of this report, but CAN WE JUST LET IT GO, AND LEAVE HER ALONE ALREADY.

She has been my advisor for almost 8 months now, and the accuracy she has had with me is astounding.  She was the only one OUT OF SO MANY PSYCHICS THAT I HAVE CALLED (and trust me I have called many, (alot of money wasted and time I might add), about a bank loan,,,she was the only one who told me which bank would give me the loan, and the night before I was to get word on this loan, the bank manager phoned me and told me they couldn't do anything.  I had phoned Topaz as she told me I was going to get the loan, it wasn't over, they were going to come up with another plan,,,,low and behold next day they phoned late in the day with a different plan.

She was the only psychic to pick up that my husband was sick, before he was even diagnosed with cancer.  Yes, GC, you said he had cancer as well, but only when I asked you about it,,,,Topaz and I were talking about something totally different, and out of the blue she asks me Sherry is **** sick, and he was.  Very sick, we didn't know what was wrong.  If she hadn't told me to get him to a dr. I would have never sent him, and he is not one to go to a dr anyhow.  I had been talking with many psychics at the time and NOT ONE PICKED THAT UP, my dear Topaz did.

Whenever I did call her, she never ever asked me to leave feedback, NEVER,,,and I don't leave feedback unless things happen,,,that's why I am sorry to you psychics who send me an email and ask if I would leave feedback, I don't because I just had the reading, other than to say they were nice, very compassionate,,,I don't have any information as of yet on how things unfolded. (Thanks to those for the emails though, very much appreciated).  So I always waited.  Well with Topaz, I left many feedbacks, as things just happened.  She went the extra mile for her clients.  Her emails,,just to check in to see how we were all doing.  I can't say enough about this woman.

Secondly, this woman would never ever bash another psychic, like alot of others did when I phoned them.  If I had asked her about something another reader had told me she would simply say yes, she sees the same or no, she didn't see that,,,but not all readers read the same.  I can't say how another reader reads.  Not one bad word about them, unlike a few that I read with that were so quick to imply that we "Should go to Topaz" if we wanted to know more on time.  Yes the woman rocks when it comes to time,,,but instead of being jealous and unprofessional about it, all the advisor had to tell me was that she wasn't good on time.  Finished, done,,,,not a long story about she doesn't know how she does time anyway,,,,and blah blah blah,,,was what I paid for.

Or to be told by a few advisors that they know who I have had readings with and that I should not be doing this, because half of them aren't psychis,,,REALLY,,,again while I am paying for this reading.  They know by feedback, well until you contribute to my paycheque, then I suggest you should not be telling me where and with whom I should be spending my money with.  I used to hate using up my time, (me paying for it) to hear that "I know you have been reading with other readers, *******, no shit Sherlock (pardon my expression), isn't that the reason there is a selection???? 

As I said I have talked to many, too many, and I have alot of favorites on this network, some are so very very nice and sweet,,,,but since I'm on the subject, I have to tell you this, the professionalism sometimes really sucks, there is no compassion at times,,,and what the **** is the reason for blocking a client when they simply question if the reading is correct???  HELLLLOOOO,,,in my job I have been questioned about things that I have done, or maybe I have made a mistake, because I am human, I don't go and block them from my life or not talk to them,,,,it's sooo sad,,,and funny really.  I'm not sorry to say I have been blocked by at least 10 psychics or so,,,,because I questioned them, not because I threatened them or swore at them, because I questioned,,,oh, and here's a gooder, I was going to a reader and really liked her,,,,really did, all of a sudden one day I was blocked.  Okay, another one bites the dust...lol,,,this is so funny really, the reason I was blocked is because I had a reading with Topaz the next day and put another nice feedback for her saying thanks and that she was my angel sent from Heaven.  This other reader read that and blocked me,,,well excuse me for appreciating someone, and I might also add, I wrote very nice feedback for this other reader as well, in fact I was the first one to put a feedback for her, and me as a client knows how we will phone when we see the good feedbacks, how hurtful. Do we as clients not have that right to question,,,,after all it is our money being spent is it not,,,,or if something never happened that was predicted I would phone back and let them know,,,I would get a whole different story,,,and then when I would question the fact that nothing happened as said  and yes at times I was upset, but not to the point of yelling or anything, I was treated very ignorantly, talked to in a snotty manner, EVEN HUNG UP ON,,,,and then the next time I call this advisor there's the lady,,,"Sorry this advisor is not receiving any calls from you at this time",,,lol,,,very unprofessional, I could see if I was a mean person or threatening or swearing, but I was none of those things, not at all!!!!! 

This is where Topaz has to be recognized, she told me alot of things when I called that I just didn't believe, I would question it and kind of laugh,,did she ever get mad, no, did she ever block me, no,,,in fact she emailed me to see if I was ok, and sorry if I didn't believe her, but that I would see,,,,AND I DID SEE,,,,SHE WAS RIGHT!  AGAIN!

This woman amazed me,,,and I find it so weird how all of a sudden all of these clients were going behind her back and talking to alllll these other psychics about her asking for money on the side.
I read her feedback I find this very very hard to believe!

Give me a break, she never did ask me for money on the side when I phoned her on the site!  She has been more than a psychic, she has been a true friend,,,and you know what, we ALL DON'T WALK ON WATER,,,,we all make mistakes,,,,BUT don't point the finger at one when there are so many on that network that are very similar.  I know and I heard as well, but that's a whole other story in itself. 
Remember, as you point your finger at someone, you have 3 more pointing back at you.

As I said I have met some very nice psychics, and still love to talk to a few, but I will admit Topaz was one of my favorites for sure.  She was compassionate, she loved her clients and it showed.  She's caring, empathic, and just downright awesome!!!!!

I have said it many many times,,,,TOPAZ ROCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKSSSSSSSSS!!!! Love you girl!

To Anonymous above-Now you're defiling MY character, etc.?

AUTHOR: Charlot - (United States of America)

I must vehemently say that you, whether, in actuality, that I've read for you or not, and that whether you are actually a former PPN client or not HAVE YOUR NERVE! To post that you take what I have written with a grain of salt, not only defiles me, but it defiles Al, the owner of PPN as well.  I did just get released from a hospital and Al is one of the finest people that I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.

Al has the proof of what Topaz has done. I HAVE SEEN IT WITH MY OWN EYES!  Additionally, and without mentioning names, I too have given readings to "certain" PPN clients, who on the condition of keeping their names private, have let me know the same exact thing, in that Topaz solicited them for their personal information and to pay her monies behind the company's back.  Anyone with high principles, such as Al, I and I would hope, the majority of PPN psychics, would definitely not!

If Topaz was so honest and ethical, she would have never done this...PERIOD! END OF STORY. I fully believe that most or all of these posts bashing PPN and Al have been written by this Faith Lynn or Topaz herself as a means of trying to make themselves look innocent, which they are not by a long shot, and to try to put down PPN, and to try to save face. All are total lies.I know what Faith Lynn did and I know what Topaz did. Both actions taken by these two individuals show exactly the lack of character that they posses.  There is absolutely no question about this, since I also know first hand the comments from certain PPN customers.

To actual clients of Topaz, you're going to do what you want to do, but my suggestion to you no matter what, is to stop living in a dream world. She may have helped you when you needed it, she may very well have never solicited money from you outside of the company, but this in way no means that she is ethical and above board. You yourselves may one day be a victim of her dishonesty, and I would not want to see this happen to anyone.

A former PPN User

AUTHOR: Anonymous - (United States of America)

I used to be an avid user of PPN before all this mess.  Topaz was my number 1 advisor on this site and I had spoken to Faith Lynn before...both ladies are not only highly gifted but compassionate and strong of character as well.  This post is in reference to Topaz, specifically, as I knew her better than Faith and had developed a loyalty toward her that is strong enough to withstand any effort to defame her character.

I found the email sent out to Topaz' clients to not only be unprofessional, but more than likely untrue.  I'm no psychic, but I am an intuitive and  highly evolved person such that I smell bs when I see or hear it. Topaz has never been anything but honest, sincere and diligent with all her clients, a fact which was evidenced by her extensively and overwhelmingly positive feedback and callback lines (sometimes more than twenty in a row...good luck trying to call her the same day! I always used to put mine in a day in advance). No one on that line, or any line, for that matter, has stuck by me through thick and thin the way she has. Frankly, I really don't care if she took side money or not because I told her she was worth every penny charged to her name on that network AND THEN SOME.  By the grace of God, and my own well-reknown detective skills, I was able to find her after many weeks of digging and research.

Let me be the first to say that Topaz has never solicited so much as a feedback from me (unlike other advisors on that site...*cough* Carmel...*cough* Emerald) let alone one red cent.  In fact, she often used to say to us how she hates that we have to pay so much for her guidance and how she wishes she could call us personally from time to time just to talk.     

As for Grand Charlot's response, I would take it with a grain of salt.  She might be a top producer (gee, wonder why they're called producers? Is it because they produce beaucoups bucks for the company by way of preying on innocent clients) but she is no psychic.  She made a number of false predictions for me AND a girlfriend of mine, telling her that her boyfriend's ex-girlfriend was not pregnant with his child when the child was in fact his, as proven by a paternity test.  I gave her names of fake people and she "picked up" on them. Total hogwash. Not Topaz.  I tried that with her and she flat out told me the person doesn't exist.  You wanna talk about integrity? Whoops, there it is.  

I have talked to every advisor worth talking to on that site.  Many are gone, many inactive, but most are full of it.  I certainly would not want to detract from anyone's business but if I could give my opinion and put together a who's who list of names I have read with over the past 5 years and found to be accurate, kind and truthful, they would be:

Vallentina Rose (straight forward and direct, great with timeframes and emotions, often answers questions before you can ask them)
Layla (also great with timeframes and sees things WAY in advance before they happen) Veronica (not on much, but catch her when you can, she's incredible and wise beyond her years) Denise (again, not on much but accurate, detailed and very quick) Donna Edwards (a relatively new advisor but incredibly connected and doesn't use tools, just plugs into Spirit)

While we're on the subject of integrity, why don't we talk about how negative feedbacks get removed because advisors whine to the boss about how unfair it is if someone is not satisfied because A) the psychic was rude or B) the psychic is a friggin PHONY.   I have read the feedback guidelines very closely, many times over, and deliberately worded my negative feedback so that it would not violate any terms of service.  Each and every time I did, it was removed because it was against one of the so called "stars" of the network (ie, producer, ie, mealticket).  At least Keen lets their negative feedback stay up and even offers partial refunds.  

I hope any and all of Topaz' (and Faith's!) former clients are as internet savvy as me and can find their beloved advisor.  I can only imagine how heartbroken they must have felt to learn she was let go of the network and it would be nice for them to find peace.

I WILL NOT stand to see Al's character defiled

AUTHOR: Charlot - (United States of America)

My name is Charlot, and I use the name of "The Grand Charlot" on Psychic Power Network exclusively. I would NEVER think of working anywhere else!
I have happily worked directly through Al since the summer of 2004.
I have also just suffered a mid-range stroke recently, was hospitalized and was released a few days ago, thank God.
Not only did Al call me or I called him every single day that I was in the hospital out of love, support, care and guidance, since I am on a fixed income, he even offered to advance me money (since I could not work).  I did not ask him for this..he offered this out of the goodness of his heart.
Even prior to being hospitalized, he had lent (advanced) me over $3,000.00 to take care of some dental work that I was sorely in need of.  We had agreed that he would deduct a certain amount each week until my debt was paid.  Out of the blue, with me still owing him a substantial amount of money, and truly out of the goodness of his heart, he forgave the remainder of the loan outright!  If this does not speak volumes for his character and caring nature, I honestly do not know what does. I was in shock and cried with him on the phone for what seemed like hours, over his glowing generosity and selflessness.
I don't know if he wants me to let you know this, as Al does not look for accolades, but I will anyway. (Don't be mad at me now, Al)  Almost 3 years ago, when his father-in-law basically died for nothing because of the incompetence of a certain doctor in New York, his mother-in-law had unfortunately built up over $28,000.00 in irresponsible credit card debt, was only left with a small life insurance payoff and a pension that never would have covered her monthly expenses, including the credit card debt.  The only way for her at the time to keep her home, was for Al to pay off her credit card debt, so she could still afford to live there, along with Al's step-son and fiancee. This also speaks mucho, mucho volumes in regard to his kind and caring heart.
Additionally last year, when his step-son was laid off from work, and for the fact that where he lives, there is barely any public transportation, Al bought him a car, paid for his insurance and gas, so he could try to find another position.  After a few months, he most thankfully did. But, without Al's help, it would have been extremely difficult. How's that for Al's character? 
As I've mentioned, I have worked through Al since 2004, I consider him like a brother, and right along with my dear departed husband, (whom Al reminds me a lot of), he, without a shred of doubt, is one of two of the most sincere, wonderful and caring human beings that I've ever come across in over six decades during my lifetime, on this Earth.
As another PPN psychic posted, I too vehemently believe in karma, and that those here who have posted untrue and hurtful responses, will one day need to pay back a karmic debt. I've witnessed enough in this lifetime (probably more than most of you) to know that what I've just stated will occur. Its just a matter of when, not if.
AL, I LOVE YOU WITH ALL OF MY HEART, for I know first-hand the true goodness that lies within you.

My Final Post

AUTHOR: PPN Owner - (USA)

Faith,

First of all, and on a personal note, you have my sincere wishes that your husband will be okay.  Cancer of any type is a scary experience and I wish him nothing but the best...honestly.

Now, the fact that when you were offering your services to Buckwood on the PPN line until last September, and you orally let any client(s) know of another site that you were planning to start through a system call, and this information was placed into an e-mail too, broke Click4advisors advisor guidelines, and you were also informed prior to working with Buckwood that this was not something that Buckwood or PPN would tolerate.  But, you knowingly did so anyway, whether any money exchanged hands or not.

Any "friends" (our clients, and whom I will keep confidential) that you had mentioned, who hypothetically would testify to whatever, will not hypothetically testify for you.  I know this for a fact and I will not go any further with this subject.

As I had written above to one ChuckUFarley, aka ???, my company has decided that we will not bring legal action at this time against anyone.  It is not worth it, and I'm sure that you agree too.

I Faith, am a man of my word.  You had stated above that you would end these posts between you and I.  I in turn, stated that if indeed you would, that I respectfully would too.  However, you kept on posting more posts within this thread and did not keep your word in this specific instance.  Okay, so we're all human.

My Final Post

AUTHOR: PPN Owner - (USA)

Faith,

First of all, and on a personal note, you have my sincere wishes that your husband will be okay.  Cancer of any type is a scary experience and I wish him nothing but the best...honestly.

Now, the fact that when you were offering your services to Buckwood on the PPN line until last September, and you orally let any client(s) know of another site that you were planning to start through a system call, and this information was placed into an e-mail too, broke Click4advisors advisor guidelines, and you were also informed prior to working with Buckwood that this was not something that Buckwood or PPN would tolerate.  But, you knowingly did so anyway, whether any money exchanged hands or not.

Any "friends" (our clients, and whom I will keep confidential) that you had mentioned, who hypothetically would testify to whatever, will not hypothetically testify for you.  I know this for a fact and I will not go any further with this subject.

As I had written above to one ChuckUFarley, aka ???, my company has decided that we will not bring legal action at this time against anyone.  It is not worth it, and I'm sure that you agree too.

I Faith, am a man of my word.  You had stated above that you would end these posts between you and I.  I in turn, stated that if indeed you would, that I respectfully would too.  However, you kept on posting more posts within this thread and did not keep your word in this specific instance.  Okay, so we're all human.

And, for the final time, if you look closely way above, the e-mail that was posted here in regard to black balling Topaz had nothing whatsoever to do with me or with PPN.  You know full well who those e-mail addresses belong to.

You also mentioned that I was typing in bold caps.  No, I was typing answers to various parts of posts in lowercase bold to make it easier to read and distinguish my answers.  Nothing more and nothing less.

As I've stated, I am a man of principle, which you have confused with the word "temper."

You have lost it.

AUTHOR: Faith - (United States of America)

 You contact every one of your clients Al.  Find out from them if any of them have been in contact with me at all, see who even remembers me.   Go find out If any of them have paid me from your site,  talk to them one on one about how much of a liar I am.  Because what you will find is nothing, or that no one really cares.   Show me the streams of revenue on a site that was deactivated Al, this site was not fully ready to even launch until about a month ago, and was only live for one day.  I had my user account Faith_Lynn up for up for a while Al before anyone went on live.   Go ask click4advisor how many PPN client I "Stole" from you.   You know what they will say?  ZERO. Nada, ZIP.  

  So, in order for me to "Steal" you clients on a site that was not even fully ready to launch, you explain that to me Al. How is that even possible.    Because I really don't understand how, though Click4advisor a secure informational site, I can hack into, and magically send out mass marketing emails directly to your clients.    I haven't taken any calls under Click4advisor and they can attest to that.     

I really don't care what emails your have, it doesn't matter.   You are a bully Al.  Plain and simple, you always have been and you always will be.   Go Issue one of your famous email threats to shake people down over there.  Give them the reference number here, and get the proof.   You show me where I took clients from you AL.  You get me the proof that I did the things you are accusing me of.  Your a click4advisor with pull,   go harass them for that information.  Hearsay and accusations mean nothing.    

My site was down,  it stayed down after I left, because believe it not Al, psychic telephone work was not by profession before you site, and wasn't after your site.   I can fully document this.  I had better things to do.  My husband was only declared in remission December this last year, so much of my time was spent caring for him.  This is very much the same tone you took with me and very much the reason I had no interest in staying. Your own people are sick and tired of you.  

When you get to the one person who actually found me after the fact, after I left,what you will find is that I never charged her one flat dime.  She will TESTIFY to this, because it is the TRUTH.   I reached out to her because I valued her as a friend.  PERIOD. There is no one here who will tell you they paid me outside your site Al, because no one did.  You are full of piss and vinegar and I feel sorry for you. 

People here are smart enough to see through you Al.  Because you wouldn't be jumping up and down like this if you had any leg to stand on and if you were going to sue me you would have already done so and not post  to be continued.......  

I would really start taking a look at your internal structure Al.   People have had enough of you, and the word is out what you have done here.   Take a good hard look at yourself.    

This is a service industry.   You are forgetting one VERY  important factor here.  Your clients.  No one who got that message appreciated it.   

These people rely on the services of the professionals you offer and they pay you for it.   They do not care about you or me.  But they do care about how they are treated.  

It is not about us, it is about them.   We are here FOR THEM.   Go back and read these posts from these clients,  look at the passion in their hearts.   Look at the pain you have caused them here.   Look at the strife, the stress and agony you placed upon them.       They do not belong to you or to me.  

If this is how you treat you clients, which has been demonstrated that you do because you air your dirty laundry in front of their faces, then people are going to talk and it is just a matter of time.   

The only people coming to me Al, are the people YOU are driving away.   


Good luck on your endeavors.     I as always, wish you well.

Hmm? When will this end?

AUTHOR: PPN Owner - (USA)

First, to you Chuck, if your real name is actually Chuck, which I doubt, if you're a male or female, you have an extremely venomous keyboard.

You post a fraudulent rip of report on a psychic you fired over a $20 gratuity claiming they are a liar and a thief in an attempt to flush out a competitor who built a better web site than you in an attempt to eliminate the competition.

A) First of all, the amount of money (although the amount you show above is only part of the sum) has nothing to do with this.  It could be $20.00 or $2,000.00.  And, it was in no way a gratuity.  If you are an ethical individual and respect the fact that the company pays good money to advertise for clients, you don't ask for their personal information, you do not solicit money from them privately (this is known as thievery) and after you obtain customers personal information, you also don't give one customers phone number to another (which was done) without the second customers permission.  Nothing that I personally posted here is fraudulent, period.  This was strictly a matter of "principle" to me, and soon after we first learned of it, I did a search on the web site, and it stated that it was owned by a Hendel Thistletop.  I did not and do not know a Hendel Thistletop, so how from this you surmise that I tried to flush out a competitor is pure hog wash.  The fact that I later found out that another former unethical PPN psychic, who was also released of her services by the company that paid her, owned the site, just added fuel to the fire, but it was never the reason for any of this.

Your fire someone who you should not have.   This alone is not a cause to post here, but when you found out the company she was going to was someone you had a personal vendetta against you did the following.

A) Same answer as above.

You made a liable pose against the psychic and distributed a threat to black ball her in the industry which has been provided here.  

A) No, I stated the truth, not as some made up rhetoric, but the proven truth that we have firm documentation on.  As far as black balling her, and as I've stated here before, the e-mail  way above this post that you derive this information from had nothing to do with PPN or with me personally.  The e-mail addresses contained within this e-mail that "someone" should never have posted are not my e-mail address.  So, you're incorrect in regard to this too.  And, I do now know who posted this, it was not Topaz as I logically assumed, since I was informed the e-mail was only sent to Topaz and the company owner that paid her.  I'll just keep the senders name confidential to avoid further conflict.

You threatened to sue the owner of the establishment if they hired her

A) "If" we were to take legal action, (which we have chosen not to at this time) the company was informed that we would have no choice, but to name them as an accessory, not as the primary defendant.

You had people threaten the advisor to the point where the owner of the competing web site had to take her picture off the site for safety concerns.

A) I had no one threaten anyone.  "If" anyone threatened her, it was without my knowledge.  I've been up front in regard to this whole situation and I do not need anyone to speak for me.

You approached the competing website owner which breached your contract under click4advisor non compete rules to try and broker psychics to their site and when she refused you shut her down by placing pressure on click4advisor to terminate their agreement with you.

A) Really?  Why would I personally approach this particular web site owner to broker psychics to their site?  Their site was not and is not yet fully operational, nor would I ever think of doing so anyway.  I have my own well established site.  This makes absolutely no sense at all.

I could go on and on with you too "Chuck," but I'm not going to waste any more of my time trying to defend myself against an unequivocal bunch of sheer lies. 

I'll rebut to you Faith later on or tomorrow, even though you had stated "I'm done with you," I agreed to do the same and you did not keep your word.

Speak only for yourself

AUTHOR: A concerned person - (United States of America)

I have watched this entire situation turn into a soap opera. And I can reasonably say the only person rising above it is Topaz. From what I can gather she doesn't want to be a aprt of this muckity muck. She herself has not come on this site. And I think that speaks volumes. And by volumes I mean speaking higher of her character. Look, none of the clients, me included need to know the ends and outs of running a psychic line. My point was that Al could have done the termination process with more professionalism. I did not take the email he sent us clients as a warning. Let's call a spade a spade. The email was about greed. I feel for Topaz more out of this situation. She hasn't resorted to name calling, threats of legal action and out and out gossip. She never came here on to publically defend herself and I respect that. She hasn't aopogized to anyone on any public forum. Her clients know her to be an upstanding person and she would be happy to talk witht them one on one. How do I know? She was my advisor for a number of years. As I said before as a client and a business owner, I don't have time for the he said/she said tactics. What happened has happened. Time to move on.... Any comments or statements from Topaz will not be placed on a public forum. She will speak with her clients on a one on one basis and will be happy to answer their questions if they feel the need to ask. Always go to the horse's mouth if you want the honest answer, right? Let this be the final comment. Life is too short to keep trying to be right. You can be right or be happy. Most of the time you don't get both. I choose to be happy. Thanks!

Whatever Al

AUTHOR: Faith - (United States of America)

You have one email Al.  The email you have is a friend of mine who will testify to the fact that I never asked for anything while I worked there, the email is a critic of a non active site.  Any other emails that show 100% proof, are showing 100% proof that I was developing a site, not that I was soliciting clients.   This is 100% you Al.   Now stop it.  If I had actually wanted to do this, I would have done this at the time, and not a year late kiddo...  

If you are claiming you have a mass marketing email sent by me to your clients then you will just have to show me it, because I sent nothing of the kind.    Most people there have more than likely forgotten who the heck I was there.  Frankly, no one cares Al. 

 I was too busy taking care of my husband who almost died.   Dude, I really could have cared less at that time about starting up a business on a site idea I was tossing around that you snubbed your nose at.  I was too emotionally distraught. 

You want make statements to justify what you think I did, then fine.  What a person says and what person does are always two very different things.   My actions speak differently than you accusations.  

This is what I actually did here Al.   I deliberately went to a non-compete web based service provider that you contracted with to ensure this would not happen.   I will pull them in to testify if need be that I was up front with them and made them aware that I really did not want anything to do with you.  Let's face it Al,  you temper runs away with you most people simply fear you and won't speak up to you because you see black and white, no in between.   And that is not necessarily a bad thing.    The people who came to Topaz will testify that they found her via use of social media on twitter and Facebook.  We have spoken directly to them.   What you are saying I did, and what I actually have done contradict.   People are going see your actions and wonder what the heck you are doing here.   

These are you actions Al.  You are jumping up and down pointing fingers and making accusations. I am not the one issuing threats to this person, enough to warrant changing her picture to protect her identity,  I am not the one who's affiliates approach me to offer a "business opportunity" because they had 5 or 6 psychics they wanted to broker to me that violated your non compete claus with click4advisor, then have my accounts terminated without reason because I said no mysteriously.   I am not one who tried to make contact though Topaz to obtain private and confidential information by implying a law suit if I didn't give it to your affiliate.  I have a witness to testify to this, and who will.   This breached your contract, Al.   You publicly admitted to an email conspiring to black ball a person in the industry, all of you actions support this threat.  What emails you think you have bear no relevance in these actions.   Your on the edge here.  Get off the cliff. We can agree to disagree and this is fine...  

 Your posts at this point are  blah blah blah   you did this blah blah blah, you are a liar, blah blah blah    you are a thief blah blah blah your conspired to steal clients, blah blah blah.   All in bold caps.   If you feel compelled to bring a suit against me then fine.  I can not stop you.   But I will not take action unless I have to.  IF you do this, you will no longer be at a point where you can say that you are not following though on a threat that started within your company and changes the good faith of your actions to malicious intent.   Come off the cliff Al.   You clients are seeing these posts and there are no winners here. Everyone here has lost, me most of all.  So here... 
   
PUBLIC APOLOGY

I apologize for myself and on behalf of Topaz and Absolute Psychic for the gross misunderstanding that has taken place here between Power Psychic Network and Absolute Psychic.  I am truly sorry Al, that you feel I am a liar, a thief and am capable of doing these acts against you.    I am sorry for all the pain this has caused here for everyone over the Easter Holiday weekend, a time of Peace.  I am sorry things came out here that should have never been brought on a site like this.   I will again say that I am not your enemy dispute what you may think of me.   I too am not perfect, and I will make plenty of mistakes.   I will still maintain that I believe in your heart you are acting in good faith to bring attention to a situation that you are passionate about and I will respect your belief in that matter, because I can not change it.    I wish you good luck in your endeavors.   

Faith Lynn.

The end?

AUTHOR: PPN Owner - (USA)

No Faith, I'm not a sick man, all of this is 100% true, and we have the full written documentation 
e-mails typed out and sent out by you to back it up. 

I try my very best to uphold the highest moral standards, whether it is in my personal life or in operating PPN.  However  I, like anyone else am not perfect, and of course, make my share of mistakes.

Even though PPN itself did not give you the opportunity to utilize your services and did not pay you for your services, nor for the services of Topaz, it turned out to be a mistake in both cases,very unfortunately.  I sincerely and certainly wish that it hadn't been.  None of this has been fun and certainly, no pleasure was derived from it.  Just the opposite.  Trust me.

When anyone applies to offer their services for PPN through a number of other companies that we work with, these companies do their utmost to screen prospective psychics, etc., and then a complete test reading is asked for.  Only then, will a psychic be able to offer their services.  However, even though this is a business of predicting, we cannot predict if any psychic whose services are accepted is of questionable moral character (no pun intended).

If indeed you are truly done with me, than I in turn am respectfully done with you too.

To Honest Al

AUTHOR: skeptic - (USA)

Psychic; a. sensitive to phenomena lying outside range of normal experience; of soul or mind; that appears to be outside region of physical law.
 
The above is a dictionary description of a Psychic. So Im asking Honest Al if his psychics are able to conform to that description and, if he would be able to prove it.
A simple way to prove it would be to take up the $1,000,000 challenge put out by the James Randi Educational Foundation. Simply prove that the psychics you employ have paranormal abilities under controlled conditions. Personal anecdotes by satisfied clients are not scientific proof of anything. The application forms can be downloaded from the website.
 
If no proof comes from you Honest Al, then you are as guilty as those you accuse of dishonesty. If you cannot prove or dont want prove anything, then remove the word psychic from your website and leave, for entertainment purposes only. Thank you.

You are deliberately railroading!

AUTHOR: ChuckUFarley - (United States of America)

Here is my OPINION, Al

From what I have read and can see here, this is exactly what I think is happening here and anyone with any kind of common sense can figure out.

You post a fraudulent rip of report on a psychic you fired over a $20 gratuity claiming they are a liar and a thief in an attempt to flush out a competitor who built a better web site than you in an attempt to eliminate the competition.

Lets look at this shall we. This is what my take is on this entire situation. 

Your fire someone who you should not have.   This alone is not a cause to post here, but when you found out the company she was going to was someone you had a personal vendetta against you did the following.

You made a liable pose against the psychic and distributed a threat to black ball her in the industry which has been provided here.  

You threatened to sue the owner of the establishment if they hired her, who went out of their way to sign a non compete contract through click4advisor because they anticipated this a potential issue and acted in good faith to ensure that there wasn't any threats to you regarding competition or client theft. But that was not good enough, you had to eliminate them as a competitor entirely. 

 You had people threaten the advisor to the point where the owner of the competing web site had to take her picture off the site for safety concerns.

You approached the competing website owner which breached your contract under click4advisor non compete rules to try and broker psychics to their site and when she refused you shut her down by placing pressure on click4advisor to terminate their agreement with you.

Further, when the post from the employee came out you had your affiliates go directly to Topaz to connect to Faith in an attempt to obtain the information of the employee who posted anonymously, because you believed she had this information. She again tells you no and go away, comes here to issue a statement requesting you to stop harassing her site and her employee, which apparently has not been the first time. 

Then when Faith, who apparently has people willing to testify against your allegations, asks you to stop,  you pull out the fact that she was an employee in your company.  

This in turns brings to the surface that you turned her website away when you had the opportunity to partner because at the time you did not see her as a valid competitor with anything of use.  But when you find out she actually was one, you did everything in your power to try and run her out of business. 

You then begin to post more liable remarks and threats against her.   You are now showing us your real interest here are to post liable, make threats and try to eliminate your competition in the process.   PPN affiliates clients and advisors need to see you for who you really are Al.  

I am filing a complaint against this company on Ripoff report for fraud.    In my OPINION Al, you have just exposed yourself for the Petty low life liar and thief you are, you site should be taken down and anyone who goes there is supporting this man needs to be aware of this. Al has done nothing here, but incriminate himself, threaten to sue others if they did not provide private information to him, harass others, breached contracts, and post liable and threats that stem from his own personal vendetta to try and eliminate his competition.   I am going to post this link on every news page, every blog site and anywhere I can think of to warn people of you.     I strongly advise anyone who has been damaged by this man, past or present come forward to file CLASS ACTION LAW SUIT!

Okay Faith, here we go...

AUTHOR: PPN Owner - (USA)

I genuinley wanted to end this, but your lies are going to catch up to you, Faith Lynn.

1) Al I will not be baited by you,  if you feel you have cause then sue me, stop threatening it and do it.  The burden of proof is on you.   There was never any attempt to steal your clients period.   

A) When you provided your services on the PPN site and was paid for your services through another company who works with us, you sent more than one e-mail to PPN clients stating that you were planning to leave us, open your own site, and you let these clients know exactly where to find you.  That was out and out thievery of clients that "we" paid to attain.  When these e-mails of your were discovered, you were informed that your services were no longer required.

And frankly I was not at your site for even one month.  What could I have possibly done to actually damage you? 

A) You were on our site from 7/31/10 to 9/18/10 and to your credit, you had built up a decent following.  Damage?  Trying (until the company that compensated you fortunately noticed your unethical e-mails) to unethically sway our paid for clients to follow you to your own site.

I stood up to you then when you reacted so hostly towards me, and I will stand up to you now.

A) I personally, nor my company stood up to you.  The company that paid you stood up to you, and rightfully so.

You can not tell me I stole from you.   

A) You "tried" to steal from PPN and from the company that paid you for your services.  Thank goodness they found your proposed theft e-mails before you sent out out more than just a few.

After you sent me that get back to work email, I was not interested in anything you had to offer.

First of all, I nor my company sent you any e-mails.  Futhermore, between 7/31/10 to 9/18/10, you did not take off more than three days in a row.  Your services were no longer required by the company that compensated you solely because you tried to divert the clients to your own new web site.

You fired me because of what you feared I might do, not what I actually did.  

A) Again, PPN did not "fire" you.  The company that compensated you for your services let you know that your services were no longer required because you tried to unethically pilfer paid for clients.

There is no one who will come forward and Testify that Topaz was trying to steal clients because she never did.

You're living in a fantasy world, Faith.  Beside the client who provided undeniable proof, we have others who, if needed, would testify to the fact that she did indeed do so.

I have done nothing to you or your site, that was not based in respect

Once again, we have in our possession, your system e-mails to a few select clients whom you personally tried to to divert to your own site.

I could go on and on, Faith.

In summation, you attempted to be a thief, you are a liar to boot, and you're trying to allign yourself with another liar and thief.

I "know" that I am an ethical, caring and honest individual and business person.  No matter what you rebutt, you Faith have shown that you are not.

To be continued, I'm sure...unfortunately.

And just to clarify

AUTHOR: Faith - (United States of America)

Let me clarify the statement. 

Just like I made it clear that I could not hire Topaz on my site because of the non-compete that I signed my name to.    

This means I could not actively solicit her while she was under your employ.   I could not approach any of your clients, any of your advisors, or anyone who worked for your company while under that agreement.

When you fired her and she became available, she came to me.    We talked about the site, I told her up front about the no compete and that clients would have to find her.   

If your PPN advisors and your clients approach me, there is nothing I can do about it and that does not violate any contracts.  Any agreements of any sort.  

Al,  the last thing I want is ill will.  There is enough business to go around.    I never set out to deliberately undermine you,  I am not that kind of person.  

God first, Family Second, Work Third.  

Now please, let's move one.   There has been enough damage done and this is a sacred day.

Nice try

AUTHOR: Faith - (United States of America)

Al I will not be baited by you,  if you feel you have cause then sue me, stop threatening it and do it.  The burden of proof is on you.   There was never any attempt to steal your clients period.   

The only reason I came to your site, was I wanted to grow spiritually as a person.   My husband was suffering from cancer, and I had to remain at home to help him.   What you have is an email from a client who found the site I decided to create on her own, and asked me about it.   She gave me opinions in an email, and at that time  that site was up there was no email, no phone numbers and no contact available on that site to come to me period.  I had just registered the Domain. So I did nothing to breach my contract with you.    In fact I made it clear that I could not take her information, Just like I made it clear that I could not hire Topaz on my site because of the non-compete that I signed my name to.    The site at the time something I was tossing around as ideas.   As you can see I create many websites, geared towards information and consumer rights.  I am an advocate, just like you are at heart.   Again I will say this and I really hope you hear it this time.  I am not your enemy.  This site is completely different.  It has and online store, and image gallery, pages of information, and other features that your site and our competitors site simply do not have.       

Noe Even when that PPN client did start talking with me, I never asked for her name, her number or any personal information, and she will testify to this in a court of law.  In fact have an email to the site dated after I left of her trying to find me many months later and that is the first I had her information.   And frankly I was not at your site for even one month.  What could I have possibly done to actually damage you? 

Al, if I wanted your clients, why would I deliberately go to the same web host provider, and deliberately sign a non-compete.     You need to let this go, there is nothing there.  

If you review you notes, you will find that I actually came to your people to ask if they could review my site and see if it was something your company would be interested in as an affiliate or even a parnter. And before that I offered ideas to your company on developing improvements to your site to increase your revenue before this even happened.    

And as far as emails are concerned. I do have a very heated email from your personally demanding me to get back to work, because I was mis-informed that my whopping .30 cents a minute would be increase when I should what I could do.  I did not need the job,  I did it because as a means to cope with my own personal situation of having to get my husband better, whom I spiritually developed as a person and learned how to use my energies to heal, study the metaphysical aspect of Chrystal and tune to Angel therapy in an effort to go beyond what medical doctors were telling me were impossible.   My husband is in remission because of my soul searching, and you site was no more to me that a place to try and grow spiritually as a individual.      I stood up to you then when you reacted so hostly towards me, and I will stand up to you now.  Let it go.   See me for who I am as a person, not for who you think I am.  Everything there is a reflection of my soul.  You can not tell me I stole from you.   

After you sent me that get back to work email, I was not interested in anything you had to offer.   Now if you continue to make these allegations, and continue to make outright efforts to undermine my site, I will have no recourse other than to move forward on cease and diciest and pursue damages caused by your company that effected this poor woman and created such havoc.    I have been more than tolerant with you.    I have issued your affiliates, and your company many requests to stop the harassment, to stop trying to obtain private information, and to stop making these accusations founded by circumstance.    You have an email Al.  critiquing a non public none active site that got published on line before it was meant to, from a person who was only trying to make something better.  I made observations in that email and was up front with you and your company.   You fired me because of what you feared I might do, not what I actually did.  

You have nothing.     There is no one who will testify that I asked for there numbers,  because I never did.   There is no one who will come forward and Testify that Topaz was trying to steal clients because she never did.   The only thing you have from what I understand was a person who sent a $20 check from contact information found on Facebook on their own accord.  And I know exactly what I said to you.   You have allegations based on your own fears.   Any judge anywhere will through this whole thing out.  IF you really want to go to all that effort knock yourself out.   You have my contact information and I do not fear you.  

If you are threatening to sue, then sue.   I have done nothing to you or your site, that was not based in respect and I have developed this site for professionals in the industry to create a healthy work environment.   I went to a web based server and signed a non compete, where I have it fully documented and will pull Click4advisor as a witness as they have letters from me stating that I want nothing to so with your company or your business.  They will also tell you that I was up front with this as a potential problem when I applied for their services.  Im a Psychic Al.  I saw this coming a mile away.   I could see enough to make them aware of it and they told me how to manage thing if a cross over occurred.  I have all of this fully documented.   So stop.     Go down this path and you will implode you company.   

If you were not so busy being so righteous all the time, you would see what you missed.     I do not harbor criminals Al, but your actions have been so.    So again,  I am sorry you feel this way, but it simply is not true.   So this is me standing up to you, yet again.   Remember these words?   I am a child of God.  My God want's me to flourish.    Remember your words?  I do...   

You let me slip through your hands, just like you did with Topaz.  Whoever the post came from is irrelevant.   It was made, we suffered threats, allegations, insinuations,insults and damages.  We have been turning the other cheek over and over again.   And the last time I looked, a person was innocent until proven guilty.   The burden to prove otherwise falls on the courts, not you.     

By my actions here, in showing what efforts I took to not be accused of what you seem to think has happened, this is my last attempt to show of good faith to you, based in respect, not based in hearsay and accusations.   I wish you well, but it is time to move on.    Only you can put an end to this.  The only reason your ppn clients are seeing our site is because of your postings, your threats, and your actions.  You did this to yourself.  We have done nothing to you.   

Do what ever you want, Al.  But I have documents, I have people who will testify on our behalf against you, and I have strength in numbers from what I see here.   You have circumstantial evidence that can be misinterpreted, but that is all you have.  Now I apologize that you are misunderstanding my intents and you are entitled to your opinion.   It will not stand in a court of law and we both know it.  So if you are going to sue me, have your attorney contact me period.  I will in turn take actions if this is what your want.    If not, then accept the fact, that I did everything in my power to avoid this situation before it even happened dispute you.   

I wish you well.  God Bless

Have a Happy Easter

Indeed, a hopeful end to this, but we shall see, I guess

AUTHOR: PPN Owner - (USA)

Firstly Faith, please respectfully look back on these posts carefully. You will find that I myself personally never sent an e-mail to anyone stating that PPN would black ball her.  This is a total falsehood and is 100% proven within this thread.  However, with that being said, when we all have free will, and an individual takes it upon himself/herself to be dishonest, and is proven to have done so, it is simply my opinion that they should not be given an opportunity to possibly be permitted to so again. 
 
When you, as Faith Lynn was let go by Buckwood last September, the action was that of trying to divert PPN clients, through the system that we work with, while still working through PPN.  Legally Faith, Buckwood has and had the right to remove you or anyone else for that matter, when they have written substantiated and documented proof of such an act.  And fair is fair, this was not an ethical action to take either.
 
I also solemnly swear that I do not have any knowledge of, as you state Faith, having any associates harass Topaz.  Everyone here is an independent contractor, and we cannot legally control this aspect anyway.  If you're referring to posts here or anything else, again, if it is true, we (I) have no knowledge of it, beyond these written posts when we see them appear.
 
Thank you most kindly for the information in regard to the lady who is/was worried about her social security number.  It is sincerely taken under advisement, however, I would rather just leave this lady alone, as she has gone through enough stress, and I did indeed give her some additional information to help her with her situation, much like as you described above.
 
As far as former Topaz clients finding her, and as I have written here before, I would personally and strongly advise against it for all of the reasons previously stated, but it is their choice.
 
Even if you take her on under a different assumed name, you will be aiding another proven dishonest person, which personally, I can in no way agree with.  That's my opinion, the opinion of Buckwood and others who have voiced their concerns to us too. 
 
Anyway and very hopefully, all of these posts, etc., will end on a peaceful note very shortly.
 
My very best to all for a safe and happy holidays!

A current PPN psychic

AUTHOR: anonymous - (United States of America)

   I too would prefer to remain anonymous for the same privacy reason as stated by another PPN psychic.
 
   Even though I totally agree with other people here that this should be ended quickly, and that we all should move on, I have read all of the posts, and Buckwood and PPN really and honestly deserve to be defended. So, I'll try to make this as brief as possible...for me at least. :)
 
   I myself have worked with Buckwood and PPN since 2005, I also know the company owners well, and to me, they are the most caring and giving people that I have ever met in any line of work. Once, when I needed an advance to pay my rent to avoid being homeless with two small children, they came through with the money overnight, which I thought was so very thoughtful, I was in tears by this act of really caring about me, I was so very appreciative, and it was very selfless of them. With a few other psychic companies that I've worked with prior to joining them, some of them did not give a hoot in you know what about their psychics, I was not always paid on time, among other things, which is sad.
 
   I also received a call from a client last June, and another last August, both of whom were distraught over a personal matter, but also let me know that Topaz had approached them during  PPN readings for money outside the company, had been asked for some of their personal information, and both felt very uncomfortable about it, but did not want me to let the companies know who they were too. I reported the information only to one of the companies, as this did not sit well with me in the least.
 
   I admit that I do not personally know Topaz, but if she were always ethical and honest, she never would have done this....and I surely agree that it gives good psychics a bad rap that we do not deserve, as we work Spirit and Guides for the good of all of our customers.
 
   Buckwood and PPN are tops in my book, I love and very much enjoy my work of helping others, and I would never even think of leaving them, unless I became ill.  Knock on wood. :)
 
   That's all I have to say.
 
   Bright blessings and happy holidays to everyone!

AUTHOR: pixi - (United States of America)

Topaz is by far the BEST psychic that PPN had to offer, and I for one am extremely devestated that she is gone. I don't believe that she would "steal" from her clients, and I have been reading with her for a while and she has NEVER solicited me for money. In fact, I am trying so hard to find her right now, and I am having no luck. If anyone knows how I can get in contact with her for readings, could you please email me at (((ROR redacted)))? I would really appreciate it, and I am sorry for posting it here, as I have no other way to get in contact with this wonderful lady.

Topaz, if you read this site, your clients support you!

Happy Easter from Faith

AUTHOR: Faith - (United States of America)

Al  I agree that that this must end.   So maybe this will help bring peace here.

You can not retract the emails you sent.   You used the words black balled which got everyones knickers in a twist.    Let me see if I can give some perspective here.  

Now I am saying this publicly with the utmost respect.  Please have your affiliates stop harassing Topaz by trying to obtain information which violates privacy acts and please stop threatening to sue on a daily basis.  It is getting old, and she gets the point.   We are tired of hearing complaints about this or that, and allegations about this or that.   The only reason I am writing this is because you used the words amen, which means you understand what repenting of sins are all about.   Especially on this holy day. 

So people here is my plea for peace.   It does not matter what has been said here,  most of this is hearsay and accusations flying back and forth.  There are too many assumptions being made, and there is too much stress everyone has endured.   So lets take a moment here and say a prayer for the woman who committed suicide and remember the hard times we are in, and be grateful this day for what we have and what we have worked for.   I feel at peace with the answer given to this difficult question so let this rest in peace.     

Now everyone here needs to understand, as a business owner, you have the right to inform other owners of a situation regarding an employee, and by the letter of the law black balling is not illegal if done in good faith.   Sorry, it is true, seemingly unfair, but still true, unless good faith is broken then does it become illegal.    Al  I believe in you heart you are acting in good faith,  you are just going about it in a more passionate way than most others would.  It's border line,  I understand that.  So here is my response .  ou have advised me of your concerns, and I am appreciative.  Thank you.  But you don't need to sue me if I hire her ok.  Your obligation to inform me of your concerns have been noted.  Just like in the scene from Pirates of the Caribbean,  I'm listening intently.    But I am not the evil EIT person, he's not real.... and I am just like you.  Passionate about what I do.    

To help your client with her concerns on her social security, please have her go to my site www.tbddiv.com  I was a beta test on the FICO system when it first hit the industry.  I wrote this many years ago in my young and plumper years, so please forgive the picture.  Almost like looking at your high school year book.  This will help her know what to do to place a fraud alert, what to look for, how to increase her score, how to depute her collections whatever she needs she should find there.   If is is more than this and she is loosing her home, please have her go to my www.bettermod.info site.  This will also give her valuable information to help stop any foreclosure action and detain it until she can get back on her feet.      

I am sorry she has gone through what she has, and I am sure you did the best you could in a situation you feel strongly about.   You did what you felt you should have done and thats fine.   If you really felt compelled to place formal charges against Topaz you should have at that time.    You and I both know that what she may have earned could not have possibly been more than a few hundred dollars.  To you and I that is not as important as it can be to someone who is a single mom trying to raise a child on her own.  If you want peace, you need to start seeing past the actions.  You do not need to forgive those acts. I intently believe that Topaz has learned her lesson in this.   And you did what you felt you had to do.   If such a thing happens here, you can say I told you so.  But you can also be confident in my abilities to be able to rectify the situation.  If it happens I will take care of it, I am qualified to do so.  

Emerald,  please stop trying to contact me,  I will not take your calls.   I do not want to contract to your company for advisors, and I will not release private information on anyone known or unknown who wishes to exercise their first amendment rights and make a truly anonymous post.  You will never know the identity, and for the interests in all involved with what has been stirred up, its better that way.  You would not want me to betray your rights in this manner, so respectfully the answer will stay, no.  Whomever this person is was obviously concerned about it, or would not gone to such great lengths, and personally I feel Al did a good job in addressing this.

Webmaster, This post  in regards was made by an anonymous account, with a fictitious name,  can you please remove it as it is causing grief and concern.   Please let the owner know what your procedures are so that it can be handled quickly and effectively.   Her concerns have been addressed and the words acknowledge and posted elsewhere over and over in these posts.  You have no reason really not to.  I have the same email post that was sent so it is really a mute point.   I just is not in my power to do this myself on their behalf because it is my understanding that they misplaced their password.  

Emerald I know you have a bond with Topaz, and you and Scott both fought tooth and nail to keep her there.  I was really hoping she could have.   not because I wanted her to start stealing clients, quit and walk out, but because she has many people who depend on her for her good sound advice.  In reality, when times are difficult, you of all people should know that desperation leads to drastic things. I never want to break that bond with Topaz,  I couldn't if I tried.   She is special to you and I have no problems with you talking to her, but not to connect to me.   You need to release her,  I will do me best to take care of her and I wish great things for her, and for you.   I do not meant never talk with her again,  I mean release her, she needs to grow now.   

Jay,  Well its been an honor to know you.  It will be ok.   

Scott keep reason at this place in line as best as you can, I know you are working on this.  So I will tell you this.   When you fired Topaz and I hired her, I instructed her to go on twitter and Facebook, to get an internet presence.  This is part of marketing oneself.  All of our emails from the client state this,  the web address Topaznow.info has been disabled, and is a landing site.  Web sites are .com .net. This was never a direct site presence until it was posted here, which also stirred up things for us.   It was not ready to launch and what you captured were conceptual in the works.    I spent over a year, compiling information, putting it together and hours among hours to create something special, different that what was out there.   So I would like to invite you to please review the site, make sure there is nothing, that you might consider anything that resembles or is too close to what your site has, so that I can make sure there is not anything there, that is infringing on any type of copy write issues or concerns.  If there was anything from that site I took and incorporated, it was because I thought it was cool.  I believe the ethics part, and I have modified this to hopefully convey the same feelings of integrity.   I am working diligently, but I just don't know your site well enough to see what may or may not be an issue to you.   Email me personally at corrections@absolutepsychic.com  and I will do my best within reason, as removing my site from the internet is not an option,  sorry.  Al is not the only one who works 16 hour days.  I have been working 18 to try and deal with all this.  My request for you is specific as I feel it will be more productive.  What is really bothering you over there with my site, because I am trying to fix it.  

Al.   When you posted that message your clients became outraged.   Their frantic search to find Topaz, really had nothing to do with your investigation or theft of clients.  They needed her.  If you can see the heart felt passion in the remarks of these people, you will know there was nothing you could do to stop them.   I had to try and deal with the aftermath of your actions, and I did the best I could.  But this caused us to have to replace her picture, fend off threats, and get cut off from our phone lines, accused f copy right infringements, and accused for stealing clients.  Dude, we haven't even launched yet , which is causing me great strife in rebuilding a completely new system to manage the calls. I have to hand custom this now, and it is a nightmare.    You create quite an expense and Topaz suffered much grief.    

You said it yourself.  People ace a right to work where they want.   You can not control what people are going to do or say and you need to be careful in the future about your actions.   Not everyone is out to get you, and in the scheme of things she only had about a dozen follow her over.    Your concerns about our site stealing your clients because we took her in,  really need to stop.    I don't have a need for your clients.  They will find me as mine will find you,its because of what we created, not because we have a hidden list of your clients in our back pocket.  I went to Click4advisor specifically for the no-compete so I would not have an issue with you specifically.   I earn what I get, I do adhere to a higher standard of ethics and I have honor and integrity.   There are billions of people in this world, and I have a need to touch as many as I can, but not at the expense of others.    Healthy competition is a good thing.  You are established already in this industry,  you can laugh at me as I stumble and fall on my face from time to time, and know that I am not your enemy.   I have a good heart, so here...  

If you still feel compelled to sue Absolute Psychic, please forward to the following address.  I am not going to loose anymore sleep over this, it will be what it will be.   So let's see what God's will is.  

Faith Lynn 19689 7th Street NE PMB#154 Poulsbo WA 98370   in addition the the Corporate office in WY listed on the Website so I can receive a direct copy and have my attorney respond accordingly.  The suit will need to be filed in WY and the Corporation is operating in the red.  Nothing much will be accomplished by this but I can not stop you from doing what you feel you need to do.  Good luck with it.  

As far as Topaz is concerned.  She is welcome here, but because of all the threats to herself and the concerns to her well being from the threats she has endured, I think she is pretty clear on the repercussions that can occur and she has suffered long enough.  

 As a show of good faith, we will not put the name Topaz on the site, this should help curb any concerns about direct promotion of the Topaz name, and we will protect her identity against hostile approaches.      I feel this is an adequate compromise to this situation and is far better that having a riot on our hands, wouldn't you agree?   

To Topaz clients, how fortunate are you to know that you have people who will stand up for what they believe is right at what ever expense.   Either way we are all blessed, and hopefully now we can all just move forward.  

Are we at Peace then? Let me know either way you want to go.   

Faith Lynn

An important response for a PPN psychic

AUTHOR: Anonymous - (United States of America)

I am writing this reply anonymously only for the fact that I enjoy my privacy, would rather keep it this way, and for absolutely no other reason. 
I have been psychic all of my life.  I have also worked with PPN and Buckwood for many, many years, know the owners of these respective companies very well, and they are both gentlemen of high ethics, integrity and I trust them implicitly. 
During my years of working with them, they have treated me like family, have on more than a few occasions, gone above and beyond for me in various ways, and I have always been paid for my services on time every single week for years without exception. 
In regard to Topaz, I have spoken with three different PPN clients in the past year or so, who, on the condition of keeping their names private, have personally let me know that Topaz had asked them for money for personal reasons, to also give them readings behind the company's back and took their personal information.  So, finding out what she had done, obviously did not surprise me in the least. 
As a matter of fact, even though I could not give PPN or Buckwood proof of what was told to me, nor could I reveal the clients names, I did let them know what I heard first hand as each situation occurred. 
What Topaz did was wrong, it was dishonest, she showed no respect for the company that paid her or for PPN, and gives all of us honest psychics a black eye, which we certainly do not want or need. 
I strongly believe in karma, in that the negative actions that some people take will one day come back to haunt them, and a lesson will need to be learned, whether in this lifetime, or in a future lifetime. 
While I feel somewhat sorry for her, at the same time, I also strongly feel that she justly received exactly what she deserved. 
As for some past or recent clients of Topaz, I can also understand how you feel if she never approached you for money.  You also probably feel that she has helped through your own situations and may want to protect her.  But, as I've stated above, this scenario was presented to me personally by more than one client, and Al and the owner of Buckwood are people of very high quality.  If they were not, I wouldn't still be working through them for all these years and hold them in the highest regard as I do.   
Thank you.

I think everyone has gotten their point across.  For one alot of this has been treated so unprofessionally, giving out names, pathetic! 

Secondly, do you not remember what weekend this is, EASTER WEEKEND, give it up for  a couple of days, I am sure some of you claim to be Christians, so let it go, spend the time with your families instead of worrying about slandering one another.

Thirdly, leave this poor woman alone already, she has a family as well, let her enjoy it with her family.  Not once has she been on here to defend herself LET IT GO!!

We as the public or her clients can well decide for ourselves whether we want to remain in contact with her...and so be it as the owner said.

This is meaningless and damaging, where is the peace in our world and forgiveness?? 

Let's all look into our hearts and let God look after it.

This poor woman has a family as well, leave well enough alone, we as the public can make our own decisions on whether we want to find Topaz or not.

This is getting way out of hand, name calling, pointing out names,,not professional, let life go on, and let's enjoy the Easter weekend with our families, and let this poor woman alone.  Please, do as God would want us all to do.

Owner not addressing issue...

AUTHOR: A concerned person - (United States of America)

Al has certainly proven to be most concerned about his public image as the owner of ppn. In regards to Topaz I was a client of hers for many years. I have found her to have nothing but the most upstanding person I know. It does not go unnoticed that Al apparently never spoke to Topaz personally to ascertain her version of events. This made more evident when he says he must assume it was Topaz that posted the forwarded email to this site. And I have spoken to Topaz on a sister site on the provider network. She has nothing negative to say about anyone. However I and others do wonder if Al ever questioned the character of the client who supposedly filed a complaint? We in business owners are taught the customer is always right, but that doesn't mean the customer is always ethical. Like I posted previously, the issue is not whether PPN was right or conducted their investigation effectively, the issue is there was a more effective way to handle Topaz's termination. A simple "we conducted an internal investigation and found Topaz to not be an ethical advisor, have terminated her employment and ask that our clients govern themselves accordingly by reviewing the terms and conditions of our service. " See? No emotions, name calling or unprofessional tactics necessary. I suggest Al conduct an extremely thorough investigation of all advisors on his site. Almost nature of the beast to assume most would have side clientele. I researched a bit and found most sites pay 20 to 80 cents a minute. Sounds like good money I know, but could you handle listening to the complications of people's lives for hours and hours and hours? Seems pretty stressful to me. That and the fact that many advisor can make $1 to $3 a minute on their own you can see where the temptation would come. All said and done, Al has every right to terminate whom he pleases. He does not, however, have the right to try to prevent any former employee from making a living in the same field if they so choose.

An honorable man would not post an illegal threat then follow through on it.  An honorable man would not send threats to sue every internet company that is a direct competitor who talks to this woman.  An honorable man would not try to run other companies out of business who make contact with her, and over what?  A false moral sense of value because this woman has a right to work.     

You just openly admitted on a public forum that you sent an email threatening to black ball this woman in the industry.  This is illegal in an of itself...   

There is nothing honorable in your actions.  

My response to your non response to my finger flip,  you have already sunk lower than me.   

By no means it is conceivable that you are a man of honor. 

This woman has a right to sue you for liable, harassment, restriction of trade, damages for loss of work, emotional damages, what ever any Honorable attorney sees fit to slap on you.   Your clients have a right to sue you for posting liable, and  attempts to restrict their consumer rights.  

Your employees have a right to sue you against unethical work practices.

This click4advisor has a right to terminate your contract with them for admitting openly that you have engaged in illegal threats which clearly violates their terms of use.

From the owner (Al of PPN) - PS

AUTHOR: PPN Owner - (USA)

Respectfully to ChuckUFarley: First of all Chuck, the "allegation" in regard asking for a persons social security number had nothing to do with your situation.  I spoke with the person in question, it was a female, not a male, and although I mentioned to her that she should never give out this type of confidential information for her own protection, but for whatever reason, she chose to do so anyway, and was nervous that she had done so, because of the "possibility" of identity theft.

Also, as independent contractors, and not employees, psychics may contract their services to other companies. This was not the problem here, Chuck. 

As far as giving our company the finger, I will not lower myself to this level and comment on it.

If anyone wants to try and find this psychic, yes, it is their business to do so.  We simply know for a fact, not fiction, what she has done, it is not the actions of a trustworthy individual, and we certainly felt that we owed it to our cherished clients to let them know the truth, since we have in our possession the documented proof to support it.

To a post by Anonymous entitled "I can not sit still and watch this:" The e-mail that is shown written by Buckwood, I am informed, was only sent to "two individuals"...Topaz and her broker, no one else.  Although I cannot prove which of these individuals posted this, I will only logically assume that is was posted by Topaz herself.

Moreover, I've know the owner of Buckwood for approx. 15 years, and he is a man of honor, as am I.  What is written in this post, specifically "The advisors are asked to give back these funds via pressure and the managers ask you to pay them if they want to talk with you. There was a suicide Charmaine Carter who endured this same treatment, she committed suicide because she could not afford her phone bill and they were threatening her to get back to work." are totally ridiculous bold faced lies and sour grapes.  I also knew Charmaine Carter, spoke with her a few times, and she certainly did not, and so very unfortunately, commit suicide because of anything having to do with her work.  She had other personal problems that I did know of and so very sadly, this was the reason that she felt it necessary to take her own life.

Finally and in general, PPN did not let anyone know of Tapaz's actions, in any way, shape or form out of desperation or any other contrived reason.  We did so ONLY to try to protect others from a person who chose to do what she did.  Period.  If after learning of this, people still try to find and contact her, it is their own business.  However, with us knowing full well what she did, and simply in my humble, but well informed opinion in knowing the facts of this matter, it would not be in anyone's best interest.  That's all.  But again, so be it.

From the owner (Al) of PPN

AUTHOR: PPN Owner - (USA)

Plain and simple, and yes, believe it or not, I always do my very best to run this company with the utmost honesty and integrity.

I have paid a heck of a lot of money over the years to attain new customers.

And yes, I earn a good living from doing so, am not ashamed of it, and put in close to 14 hours a day in the process.

However, when a psychic asks for and accepts monies from the aforementioned customers on the side, it is stealing.  Period.  There is no way around this fact.

If it were not for the fact that PPN does its best to advertise and to also be as fair and honest as it possibly can, our family of psychics would not receive business.

It is also not lost on me, that without our family of psychics, we would not have a business either.  So, it of course, works both ways.

I have perused the comments on this post, and find some of them most disheartening.  But, so be it.

Have a wonderful holiday everyone.

I can not sit still and watch this

AUTHOR: Anonymous - (USA)

This is insider information and will get me fired if they find out who I am.   I can not watch this anymore...
Buckwood is who supplies the agents to Power Psychic Network.   Under Buckwood there are third party companies who go in and set up their psychics, and pay them under the table.    The advisors are asked to give back these funds via pressure and the managers ask you to pay them if they want to talk with you. 

There was a suicide Charmaine Carter who endured this same treatment, she committed suicide because she could not afford her phone bill and they were threatening her to get back to work.   I know if someone looked they would find this.   Here is the proof that Topaz is innocent.

 We will be blackballing her in the industry and letting all other psychic owners know that she is a liar, a fraud, a scammer, and that she is a person without integrity,  and a person not to be trusted by anyone, anytime.

Ridiculous..

AUTHOR: Concerned - (United States of America)

Dear Owner of PPN:

I did an online search for TOPAZ and this is what showed up.  If you are upset with her because she violated your contract then you did the right thing...you fired her.  If you have proof that she accepted money on the side then you did the right thing..you fired her.  I am at a loss as to why you would file a "Rip Off Report" citing additional "allegations" otherwise known as "nothing you have proof of" against her.  Maybe (and rightfully so) you are concerned that her clients would look for her.  We have looked for her and we found her..are you hearing me owner of PPN...WE FOUND HER! 

To put out an email asking people not to look for her is desperate and laughable.  I was never solicited by her and have read with her for YEARS...she has been nothing but a pleasure.  If you want to go after her for accepting money on the side, I am intereted as to what the parameters are as far as that is concerned.  Most of the psychics on your network read for other networks..under the exact same name...some of them cheaper...is that soliciting on the side??  It is my understanding that these people are independent contractors that can work for themselves or any other network and THEY DO!  Why are you not punishing them?  Isn't that the same as soliciting clients away from your site????  You cannot make rules that apply to some and not to others...that called "Being A Boss 101.."

Good Luck with your network Mr. Owner of PPN....I have spent a lot of money with you through the years and you will not see another dime from me.  I received your email and thought it was one of the most unprofessional, fearful, cowardly emails that I have received.  I have found my advisor and frankly just cut out the middle man.  Do you understand what I am saying Mr. Owner???  I solicited her...she did not solicit me.  I typed her name into google myself...she did not type for me and if I choose to call and pay her...I will do it because I want to...not because she asked.

Are you KIDDING ME!!!

AUTHOR: ChuckUFarley - (United States of America)

First off let me nip this identity theft crap in the butt right now    Topaz was my advisor whom I confided that I was the victim of identity theft and that my social and my families socials were compromised to the point of BK.  She never asked for my social security number, this is what they heard   They are twisting their "facts" to fabricate lies.  

Second I also will point out that how can they say Topaz is stealing clients when half their psychics are on other sites? What, this is a shocker here, or are they going to drum up other "facts" to post more crap about other advisors as well...  or is this because they are telling these people to go out and drum up business by using these other sites as a way to direct business back to them...  Are you kidding me.  What kind of scam are you pulling?  IF this was such an issue why do psychics on their own site advertise that they come from other sites?  

Frankly, If their site isn't offering the service I want, I have every right to go any place I feel like to find it.  This not her stealing this is me giving Power Psychic Network the finger.     I am a consumer finding the service that I want, if they are stupid enough to discontinue that service, I am going to go find where it is.  I spent several weeks trying to find her. If this woman was stealing clients then why would I be trying to find her.  Wouldn't she already have my number?    No there is more going on here,  what are you hiding?  

Last I checked I registered with through click4advisor on their site. There is NO exclusive agreement with Power Psychic Network to only use their site,  and for them to claim theft of a client who is registered under a place they contract  to is the biggest load of crap I've read.  The only rights they have to these people is what this other place they contract to allows them.   No where in the click4advisor user agreement does it list I'm exclusive to Power Psychic Network.  In fact no one on this site is even obligated to use them under the click4advisor system.  Wake up.  

 After what I've seen happen here,  I would strongly encourage anyone reading this to not use Power Psychic Network.   Now where have I seen those words before!  Because while they are jumping up and down about this woman stealing clients from them, while they, in My humble opinion, are actively stealing clients from other networks. Kashmire Formally "Kashmire Farber" with another network Laura Formally "Laura of the Light" with another network plus others who you can clearly see on Keen, Power Source, Psychic Connection, ect.  Further  I find it odd that there is a second report directed at another psychic store owner with claims posted against that site posted the same day directed at a psychic site whom if you look you will see psychics on both sites.   So who is stealing from who here?

Third this so called victim from what I have heard has frequented every Internet site there is and apparently has been following Topaz every site she's ever been on and in between.    This is not a victim this is an idiot.  If this is whom I think it is, they don't have squat  These people must think we are idiots to buy it. And this network must be fools to think that after all these years their clients don't talk to one another outside their site.     

Fourth  From what I hear, they threatened to blackball Topaz in the industry because she wanted to leave this site and they where afraid that her clients would follow.      She is a top producer in high demand.  To claim theft and law suits from people who are looking for her is unrealistic and would not stand up in an actual court of law. And from whit I hear they shut down that site that used the same click4advisor web hosting over this by pressuring them to terminate their contract if they didn't.   So where is the unethical behavior here?  

They couldn't deny she was an real psychic in the post they made, so what this is an out to save face when she comes crawling back after you "blackball" her by threatening to sue everyone she goes to.   I wouldn't be the least surprised of an email out there with that threat in it if anyone has it post it here. 
I will never use that site again.  I don't care what happened, it is highly unethical and unprofessional to distribute this type of crap.   If this woman was guilty of a crime, then why do this instead of prosecute her?  If they have proof of theft thats undeniable irrefutable evidence there is no other reason than to break her so she has no where else to go.  The only  way this would be acceptable is if this proof showed prior convictions of these claims.   That's undeniable irrefutable proof.  Not insinuations based on hearsay and accusations.  

I am posting anonymously because I use click4advisor on another site and I will be damned if I will have this site be sued  or shut down by  these people for theft.  How dare you try and violate my rights as a consumer.   I for one am on board if a lawsuit arises from this, and it won't be on behalf of PPN.  They can go hang themselves.

Topaz - Public Battering

AUTHOR: Jenny - (United Kingdom)

It seems that the psychic  breached PPN's terms+conditions. Clients must have agreed to pay the psychic outside the  PPN consultation. I received an email (copy below) regarding Topaz and responded to click4advisor/PPN:


It is unprofessional of you to circulate a personal, defamatory email concerning your own internal dispute/investigation with an employee. It appears that either Topaz has not kept to her terms & conditions with you and/or there is rivalry/jealously amongst her colleagues. It does not matter to clients whether Topaz has been caught lying/stealing. It is irrelevant. Also, it is not possible for her to steal from clients given the way the payment system is set up. Even if it were so, you are still being unprofessional by publicising this. There are a number of 'unethical', fake psychics on your site that give highly unprofessional guidance, defile other advisors and promote fancy illusions. It would not surpise me if you were taken to court for libel by circulating an inappropriate email. Keep your internal affairs within professional boundaries. It is up to clients to search Topaz in another guise or site if they so wish. You have no right to tell them otherwise. 


 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Clients,
 
Very unfortunately, we have had to go through an exhausting two week investigation regarding the alleged lack of 
ethics and integrity of Topaz.
 
We have indeed been presented with 100% undeniable, incontrovertible DOCUMENTED PROOF that she has been 

caught LYING AND STEALING. SHE IS CERTAINLY NOT AN INDIVIDUAL TO BE TRUSTED, SHE VERY MUCH LACKS 
ETHICS AND INTEGRITY FOR DOING SO, and she has been permanently deleted.
 
We VERY STRONGLY ADVISE AND URGE YOU FOR YOUR OWN SAKE, no matter if you happen to like Topaz or not, to 

NOT to seek contact with her UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES WHATSOEVER. We fully realize that this is a an extremely 
serious statement, and that we do not take it lightly, nor should you. PLEASE DO NOT TRUST HER. We would never lie 

to you period, and especially in regard to something as important as this.
 
Please understand that this also was certainly NOTHING that we looked forward into finding out, but it IS the 
unfortunate and indisputable TRUTH of this very sad and drawn out matter.

 
We sincerely thank you for your patience, while we were forced to perform our due diligence and completely thorough 
investigation of Topaz and her proven dishonesty, and lack of moral character, ethics and integrity.

Know Facts, do not believe everything you read

AUTHOR: A concerned person - (United States of America)

This company had employed Topaz and found checks that were sent to her to help her- more as a gratuity and having nothing to do with side readings. This company emailed their clients of the psychic line to tell them only their side of the story. Never once was Topaz allowed to explain herself to any of the clients. It was assumed the company was right and he was wrong. How do I know? I am a former client of the site. Many people are skeptical of psychic lines; I get that. But this company's email was very unprofessional, accusatory and written with more capitals than I have seen in any email in a business setting. It was stated in the email that this company would be blackballing her in the industry, which we all know is illegal. As a business owner myself, the best solution would have been to terminate Topaz if they truly felt it necessary and make restitution if they feel it necessary. Not that either of those were warranted. The problem this company did not anticipate is that Topaz's clients love her and did Internet searches to find her. There was no stealing of clients. This company needs to realize they cannot control the actions of clients with a sense of loyalty to their favorite reader. And moreover, cannot push Topaz out of the industry if this is how she makes a living. I invite everything to formulate whatever opinions they might have, but please also consider the facts and not get swayed by the overemotional statements of PPN. I as a former client made the very difficult decision to never call them again. However, I HIGHLY recommend Topaz to anyone who is looking for a good, honest, caring and gifted reader! Stealing social security numbers? That is so ludicrous to even think of. Really??? Good day to all! (:

Thank you.

AUTHOR: Flynrider - (USA)

  So, the basic idea here is that you're saying that someone who claims to be a psychic is dishonest?

   Really?

 

"Thank you for reading the total truth in this unfortunate matter."

  Thank you for posting the obvious.

   Next we'll be hearing that some rattlesnakes can make dangerous pets.
