Attention Americans, Canadians, Europeans and English Speakers.  There is a scam that starts online inviting you to go to Ukraine to participate in their battle of the psychics TV.  They invite anyone they find even if you don't call yourself a psychic.  If they like your "look" they will pay for a plane ticket to take you to Ukraine where you will have to spend hours to be picked up. They will set you up in a crappy hotel full of bugs, rude operators and uncaring management. Later, you will be conned into having 'a day out' but you will be driven to a place where you have to work 12 hour days with barely any food.  They will pressure you into signing a contract or they won't pay for your ticket home and you'll be trapped and have to find your way to you country's embassy.   They will say things to your face and in emails but then go against it in the contracts. [continued below]....
.....  You won't be paid on time and less than one your contact states.  The show itself is a scam, meaning that they feed the participants information on the people they are supposed to be reading and if you refused to say it, you are in breech of contract.  You aren't allowed to go anywhere without someone from the show following you even to take a piss.  You will be verbally harassed by the other participants and some have even physically threatened to harm those on the show.  They will also put you in a van with a horrible driver who also bribes cops when caught speeding.  The crew on the show looks unhappy and complains about how badly they are treated on the show.   This is just the mild things they do to break the law.  They have visa fraud.  Participants from other countries who require a visa to work in Ukraine will be told it is all taken care of by the STB channel and they won't show prove so you'll find out later that you've been working illegally.   The show is filmed for around 5 to 6 months and some who need the prize money will stay on the show in good faith that despite all the illegal activity and lies, that if they when they'll get 30,000 which is promised you in person, email and cited in the contract.  HOWEVER, when you win, you will not be given a penny.  They will send you home, for some (the losers) you will have to pay for it yourself.  After you leave and make calls, send emails and try to expose them, they will send you death threats to shut up or be shut up permanently.   The FBI has been contacted and the Ukraine government on STB's horrible and unethical treatment of foreigners.   The people there are nice and who be sickened by how they are ruining their countries reputation by refusing to simply pay the winners and treat everyone well.  I post this to warn any other english speaker from getting scammed and potentially being physically harmed.

If you are wondering why more people aren't exposing them it is because of the death threats and fear, and some unethical participants are trying to profit from the show and off the pain of others. Anyone using STB's show to display how accurate they are is a LIAR.  All the psychics are told specific personal information about the ones they are reading and the tasks.  Like I said, if you don't you are in breech of contract, but those who don't say they were acting on the show are were displaying acutally psychic abilities are LIARS.  The winners are generally real and some others but they will tell you that the show fed them lines.  Anyone claiming they were on the show and got all the information him or herself isn't being honest.  The Ukrainians need to realize that some of the psychics are actually con artist or actors.  Some are legit!

Mr. Underdown is a pitiful excuse for someone who is actually looking to prove or disprove psychics because the show is a complete joke.  He and Randy do their organization a disservice by being afflicted with them and Uri Geller told those contacting him about the unethical treatment, lies and scamming were told "it's just money and to get over it."  This man doesn't care how people are treated and is a liar just like STB.
