Exactly what it says, really.
It’s a name which causes strong reactions in a lot of people.
To her fans, who believe that she is a “true psychic medium,” she is a down-to-earth, spiritually deep woman who, with the help of her “spirit guide” Francine, can see the future, diagnose illnesses, find lost children, and communicate with the dead.
To skeptics, who believe that she has not proven any of her purported abilities, she is almost certainly a fraud, using stage tricks such as “cold reading” to simulate psychic abilities, preying on the grieving, the ill, and the spiritually needy.

The site used to have a different URL, but that has lapsed, so if you’ve bookmarked or blogrolled it before, you need to update the link. Please sort that out ASAP, it’s important for linkjuice.
I noticed this on a Facebook friend’s page, and it reminded me of some other links I’d been sent about “psychics” who purport to relay special knowledge about events surrounding murders etc. There’s a group of them currently operating in WA alleging that they have had revelations about the Claremont serial killings, for example. It is interesting to note that they “sold out” at least one “psychic taskforce” show:
The night will include readings amongst the audience but the high light will be our real time live investigation of a major Western Australian unsolved crime.
Needless to say, there have been no announcements since this event took place more than a month ago to say that a body has been found or a murderer identified.
“Psychics just want to make money from other people’s grief and misfortune,” Mr Spiers said.
“It upsets me that they are still trying to gain from the death of my daughter and the other girls after all these years.”
He said he had been so desperate to find his daughter after she disappeared more than 10 years ago that he had listened to the “shysters”.
The psychics involved in the event could not be contacted for comment yesterday.
Leeches. Do they get more kicks out of the people hanging on their every word or from the ill-gotten gains, do you think?
