The tagline of the website is "Seeking for true and genuine online practitioners." Very telling.
Let me start by saying if you are claiming that some psychics are "real" while others are "fake" then you are already part of the scam.
I made an account just to browse the forums and the administrator of the forum, who goes by the name "Hope," sent me this PM:
"Hi, welcome to the forum. Please be careful as there are many scammers here who will try to take advantage of you! If you are looking for a psychic or genuine practitioner I recommend the Association of Independent Readers and Rootworkers (AIRR) (readersandrootworkers.org), Spirited Enterprise (Spiritedenterprise.com) or Life Spirit Socitey of Magick (lifespiritssocietyofmagick.com). Beware of the exposed scammers - they have been proven false time and time again! Please also check Ripoff Report and do your research to find a genuine practitioner."
I made a different account and I was given the same message, but with three other websites.
So I looked through the forums. There is a member's only section that markets and promotes many "genuine online practitioners" as per the tagline (lol) while at the same time "exposing" other psychics. Many of the discussions on exposed psychics consist of little more than "Comes from Nigeria, stay away." All of the psychics are scams, but they aren't exactly putting these people through the Randi challenge.
Anything from Nigeria is almost certainly a scam. This forum is also a marketing scam to promote psychics. It is not a forum that actually "exposes" psychics beyond the select few that it chooses. This is a marketing tactic to gain confidence. Or you could simply say it is a con. You should know that these are all scams. A search on Ripoff Report confirms that this is a scam originating from Singapore. Others have been asked to send money to Singapore directly on the website. Folks, sending money to Singapore is like sending money to Nigeria.
A quick review of the forum will show you that most of the posts are made by the same group of 5-10 individuals. Most are likely the same person. They could be a small group of "psychics" who banded together to promote their own circle of websites. All of the other accounts are spurious with very few posts (less than 10-20). This is what happens when spammers use forums as marketing tools. There is no real group of actual active posters like you would expect in a real forum.
I attempted to make one thread as a test. It was short and simple. I wrote "I bought a spirit item from Spiritedenterprise.com but there was no spirit inside."
It was deleted in less than 20 minutes and I was IP banned from the forum.
