Let me first state this:...sorry for the caps, yes I am shouting....


I have spent thousands of dollars over the past few months hoping to find a "legitimate" reader...this has been an expensive exercise, and I have kept my mouth shut long enough!

I will post my long and exhaustive list of these so called "experts" in the future as my situation is still pending, and maybe one or two of them will actually have been correct. At this point I am not feeling overly confident or crossing my fingers.

Several of the so-called "authentic" ones I found here, and asked for readings based on what others had experienced.

This is a complicated issue. First of all, please know I am utterly humiliated and I DO take responsibility for my actions. Therefore, I do not wish to portray myself as a victim. Someone who make a bunch of bad choices? Yes, for sure. The only justification I have is that I consider this some form of spiritual therapy (albeit twisted, indeed)...otherwise it is too devastating to deal with.

Now some of you may be laughing thinking why would anyone in their right mind spend money on a psychic reading. I say very much the same for those of you who believe in "conventional therapy". You have probably spent thousands too, thinking you are doing something better for your self. To each his own, and let's leave it at that. I never went to this site seeking ADVICE, I was looking for someone who had PSYCHIC ability....big difference.

I do see that Kasamba/LP is and should be held responsible based on the fact they promote their site and advertise "expertise", when, in fact, there is absolutely nothing in their system that excludes ANYONE from becoming an expert on their system. They are skimming profits selling COUNTERFEITS. I know that anyone can become an expert....sign up yourself and you will see. The only thing LP is expert at is making money off of vulnerable clients. I do have a suggestion that would make the site better for those who continue to use it, which I will post at the end of my rant.

Now...let me state this and make my peace!! As I said my list is extensive. But I would like to go on record today to make the following statement on these readers, based on what I have read here and on the yahoo group that I joined (BTW for anyone who has doubts, join this group and get your facts!!). It will bring a lot of things to light.

I have had reading with many of those listed by other clients, and some I agree with and some not.

So for today:

Master Z :is a Master fake. Why this man is allowed to practice anything, I don't know. But he is very good at scamming a lot of money very quickly, so I am sure he must be a star at LP.

David James: I don't know what the big "woo" is about him. He was very rude and hung up on me before hire.

Dr Phil : Big joke, major waste

Sandini: Hung up on me

Gypsy Raven: Rude, hung up on me

Alexandra: Very rude when I told her I didn't understand what she was saying and asked for a clarification

And I will say this about the latest "controversy" Shining Love: I went to her based on the acclaim she received here. At first I also believed she was for real, but then went back again for a second reading. Now based on what I have read and experienced myself, I have come to the conclusion that she is NOT a psychic. I'm sorry, the fact you say you have a God given talent and are a god loving woman is APPALLING to me, and I'm not even Christian. If you were such an individual, you would NOT find it necessary to google ANYONE to see if they left bad ratings...you would be able to sense bad energy coming your way. Or, are you not an empath? The fact you have found it necessary to defend yourself to such extent also shows me you are full of fear, as you find it so necessary to defend yourself to such extreme, and get caught up in this drama. If, in fact, you were so genuine, how about offering a REFUND to the clients who feel you ripped them off??? THAT would be the actions of someone of your self proclaimed stature. And, why now are you Shining MORE Love?? What are you guilty of?????

As I said, I have MANY more people to add to this list, and I WILL. Funny how three months ago, my readings extended beyond the 30 day rating period. Now that that has past and most of these time lines are OFF, the latest readings are also pointing to 3 months plus from now. Very convenient for a reader to CYA.

Here is my suggestion to the ratings system, that I do believe would oust some of these phonies: MOST people rate immediately following their session. Very convenient, as most predictions pass that point, and there is no return. After all, it IS a polite way of doing business....you enjoyed the experience, the reader was nice, or told you things that you believed in the "throws of passion" of your session.It is common for most people to do this, and it is ENCOURAGED AND ASKED for by many readers. I would say that LP needs to add another field to the ratings which would allow any individual to come back after the 30 days and rate to see if predictions had come to pass. This would be very helpful, rather than reading these ridiculous rave reviews that lead anyone to believe they are spending their money for an AUTHENTIC service. This would also push for a big fall-out by many of these fakes.

They should also start to police their own system. Frankly, EBay does a better job attempting to control this and WILL shut down a seller who has proven to rip off individuals. What happened to quality control? Obviously, there is NONE. As I said, anyone and their monkey can sign up and become an advisor.

BTW, Janice, while I do find that many of your posts are emotionally fueled, and sometimes hard to follow, I DO commend you for all the work you have done and for your diligence to finally expose these scammers. And, may I ask, is there ANYONE you have found on the system whom you deem legitimate?

I am not well versed enough to know if there is enough evidence to file a class action suit against this company, but I am willing to provide information to a legitimate attorney (Oh..I bet you can find loads of those on LP too...lol).

You make a good suggestion

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

I noticed you mentioned about the 30 days to rate - it truly is a short time in which to truly gauge whether a read was valid or not. Since these are internet readers and there is no testing or vetting, then the feedback time should be much longer. I think it was several years ago - at least 3 months. Due to all the multiples and sharing and cold readings - 3 months would at least be a better cooling off period for the client in order to rate it more objectively IF it is to be a real tool for other clients to use as to whether they select that reader.
If the rates were low I dont think there would be as much anger about poor reads (although there is no excuse for it) but when you are spending 10 dollars a minute there is real anger about getting ripped off.
The Catch 22 is that readers start black listing you if you don't rate right away, or rate your honest feelings. Even if you rate 4 stars you get blacklisted - and that means you rated the read as good and still got blocked! Why one reader would care how you rated another reader is beyond me since they are supposed to be independent readers selling their own services hopefully with confidence....so something is amiss there if the are blacklisting you -and checking out your ratings on other expert - before they accept you as a client. So I was grateful if I got blocked because I realized they are not genuine, nor confident, nor independent - and so I didn't lose money on another false read. However it is rude but that is the energy of LP.
There are a few on there that can give a good read and are not on alot and you can tell by their reads that the read is unique to you...but heck, it takes a lot of effort to find them!
