Are you looking for a psychic? If so, be sure to look for the 7 signs of a possible fake psychic before trusting your hard-earned money to them!
6 Signs Your Psychic is a Fake
Sadly, there are people in this world who are interested in nothing more than stealing your money, and yes, fake psychics are included in that list. If you are looking for a psychic it may be difficult to tell whom to trust. After all, there's no board-certification required for someone to become a psychic. There's no Doctorate or other University-sponsored degree in the paranormal. There's not even an Association or other State or Federal organization that tests and certifies each and every psychic prior to their going into business.
So, how do you tell if you have a real psychic? That's not so easy, but it IS easier to tell if you have a fake psychic. That's because fake psychics will commonly slip-up and reveal themselves for what they are in one or several of 5 common ways.
If your psychic is exhibiting one of these 6 signs then you should take note and be careful, your psychic just might be a fake!
1. Your psychic wants extra money to clear a curse on you
  A very common trick of fake psychics is to tell you sometime during your reading that the reason for your (or your family's) misfortune is because you have a curse (or negative spiritual energy or other such terms) on you, and that it will take money in the form of more readings, or expensive candles, crystals or other items to remove the curse. However, it's far more likely that the only real curse on you is the curse of having found your way into the clutches of a fake psychic. Believing that this curse on you is real is probably the closest thing to a curse you'll actually ever have. Most of us have misfortune in our lives not because of curses but because of events or conditions that often are not in our control.
2. Your psychic guarantees you results
There are no guarantees with psychics and their results either. If a psychic is offering you a guarantee that they will make something happen for you, like making someone fall in love with you, or making your life better by removing a curse from you or guaranteeing that you'll be getting whatever it is you want, be careful.  Mediums and psychics don't actually make anything happen at all. In fact, they simply "read" the psychic energy that is present around us, or is present from the spirits of those who have passed on, and communicate their interpretation of that energy back to you.
3. Your psychic asks for your financial information
all of you in the United States: Do NOT reveal your Social Security information to anyone that does not need it for a very important reason. The Government may require that you enter your social security number for getting a passport. Your bank or mortgage company may require your social security number for setting up a loan or other account, but your psychic should NEVER need your social security number, period.
4. Your psychic continually changes their phone number and other contact information
Psychics in good standing with the public do everything they can to ensure the public can find them. After all, it's good for their business if they can establish many different ways for people to contact them when looking for their services. Staying in one place and using one phone number for a long time is a benefit. If your psychic is constantly changing phone numbers, or business locations, or both, then be cautious. People who don't want to be found usually end up changing their locations and other contact information rather often. If they don't want to be found that means someone, or some organization, may be looking for them.
5. You have a bad feeling about the psychic
If your intuition is telling you to be cautious, or to flat out not trust someone, then it's probably a good idea to carefully consider what your intuition is telling you. If you feel like the psychic you are interested in is not a good fit for you then you're most likely right. Trust your instinct, especially when your instinct is telling you to be careful.
6. Your psychic asks you leading questions
A good psychologist can use leading questions to slowly and carefully pry our innermost thoughts out of us. Without realizing it, we provide information to the psychologist that helps them understand what makes us tick emotionally. Likewise, a good psychic can pry information out of us without us realizing it. Sometimes this is helpful, especially if the psychic is trying to help us overcome fear or anxiety about the reading. However, this use of leading questions can be put to bad use by those fake psychics who are only interested in taking money without providing us value. They ask us seemingly innocent questions, and our answers provide them with information that helps them get whatever they want.
 Try to answer the question, but try not to add in any extra detail or other information.
