This review is not about her psychic ability, but her behavior related to business matters/customer service. 

I had been using Linda's services for about 10 years on and off.  The last time I talked to her, I decided to purchase the candles she recommended. When my order came, I received triple the amount of candles I ordered and my credit card was charged accordingly.  I left a voice mail message and followed up with an e-mail about an error on my card.  She told me I would get the refund once she received the candles back. So I drove to her home and delivered them to her.  We ended up going back and forth via e-mail about the refund.  I first asked her to send a receipt then because I didn't understand all of the charges (shipping/processing and handling), I asked her to break it down for me (itemized) plus I wanted a break down for my own records. Linda's e-mail response was defensive because she took my request as if I was accusing her of stealing, which clearly I did not indicate (too bad she is so insecure to feel that way about herself). 

The tone of her e-mail prompted me to call her and clear things up and let her know that it wasn't my intention to make her feel that way.  When I called her, I didn't have a chance. She went on a verbal attack, called me a "pain in the a*s" and told me that she didn't need my business. She said she didn't have an assistant to help her and that she "can't afford this".   She then went on to say, "don't blame me for your money problems"!  Then she kept on going until I finally hung up. She called me right back with the nerve to say it was rude of me to hang up.  I discontinued taking her calls. Once she realized I would no longer be talking to her, she went on an e-mail rampage where I asked her not to e-mail me anymore because she lost all control when she's supposed to promote "healing". 

Predictably enough, she went right to her Facebook page, wrote me again, then deleted me, just like an immature school girl, certainly not an act of someone of a professional standing.  Linda will totally write you off and go straight to on the defensive if you question or challenge her, rather then talk out an issue to resolve and ultimately heal, like she claims. HYPOCRITE!

Lesson Learned

AUTHOR: Do The Right Thing - ()

I wish I would have done my research before spending my hard earned money on this woman. This is not necessarily about her ability to give correct information, which i would really never know since I dint speak but 15 minutes with her and was still charged full price. I had a feeling leading up to my reading that she would be abrasive as I have heard her speak to others in this way on the radio show she was on. I prayed and sent out good energy for weeks leading up to my appointment so that I could have the best experience possible. I was severely let down. I was sitting at home by the phone waiting to call in for my 30 minute reading. No sooner did I sit down and my phone rang. It was Linda. She didn’t even say hello, she said "you are late you are wasting my time!" I apologized and told her there must be some misunderstanding. Her scheduler told me to call at noon and must have wrote it down incorrectly because she called at 11:45 completely irritated and angry. You would think as a professional that you would handle something like that with understanding and patiently  tell your customer who is PAYING YOU that you only have time to finish a now 15 minute call and why. I paid for 30 minutes and received 15 minutes of negative energy. Many things she said absolutely did happen in the near future and I was not ever surprised by that. I was only surprised at her complete disregard for the consumer and her hateful demeanor. If you read this and you have thoughts about receiving a reading from her please take this into consideration. If you don’t mind being trash talked, scolded like a child, and told you are less important than her than by all means make that call. What I wish for this woman is to come to grips with reality and realize that we are all here for a short time. What we do on this earth counts. Just because you provide someone with accurate information about their future does not earn you heavens points. Treating others with love, kindness, and respect will always outshine any wonderful act you do in hate and darkness. This report closes the book on my experience. I have gone months without speaking out but for me this helps me move on. Weather Linda knows it or not I am a beautiful soul with so much love and earthly experience. My goal by writing this is only to help others. Too bad she abuses such a beautiful gift.

Irriate customer whoever you are

AUTHOR: Dr Linda Salvin - (USA)

NO one receives FIVE sets of candles in error.  If a label was placed on a box in error, gee, perhaps I am only human.  You're correct, I do not have three people working for me anymore as my life has changed since the death of my mother.  We all have issues and yet all I do is sacrifice to help those who appreciate my work.

Everyone gets a refund when needed.  If you have a problem, contact the office.  I hope you feel better venting your crap to try to hurt me.  After all these years, having the candles help thousands and the few gripes I receive here, I can only defend the products that have helped people with cancer, law suits, love, luck, and more.  If you were so unhappy, why were you a customer for so many years?
I hope you find your peace.
Dr Linda Salvin
