Complaint Review: Bartimaeus psychic
Bartimaes the psychic conned me out of thousands of dollars. I am a single mother, and I stumbled upon Oranum.com through an advertisment. I clicked and saw a lot of friendly psychics, and decided to take Bart in for a private reading. He was very kind, and said he felt a special connection to me. The next day I had another reading with him and he gave me his phone number. I thought that was odd, and he mentioned not to tell anyone. My lips were sealed. So instead of private readings, we texted a lot.
He was charming, and not too long later I decided to fly to his crappy neighborhood, and horrible apartment, where he lives with his girlfriend, although he acts like he's single. We went out for drinks, and it was there he broke down crying asking for money to pay for medical bills for his sister (who I never met.)
I was leaving the next morning, but while I had a few drinks in me, I decided to give him the money ($3,000) as he promised he would pay it back. As soon as I was at the airport, I stopped hearing from Bart. When I did get a hold of him on oranum, he kicked me out of the room. Then I tried calling him, dozens of times, and he told me HE DID NOT REMEMBER ME LOANING HIM MONEY! It als turns out he does not have a sister.
What a liar, con artist! Woman of the psychic community, there are great psychics out there, but STAY AWAY FROM BART. He should be arrested, but since I never signed a contract, technically I can't get my money back.
