"Psychics" are the one breed of scam artist who I don't think should be regulated/arrested for ripping people off...

If you're clueless enough to fall for their nonsense, you absolutely deserve what you get.

This awful parasite Sylvia Browne charges $700 per fucking hour for a "psychic reading" by phone. As much as I hate this cunt and want her to die in agony bleeding out in a ditch, I love the fact that she is royally fleecing a bunch of stupid ass rubes who believe this childish psychic horse shit.

That bitch is a proven fraud, as well as a criminal

From Wikipedia

Criticism and controversy
Sylvia Browne has been involved in numerous controversies regarding her claims and predictions. Her critics say that she is a cold reader. She has had a long running feud with skeptic James Randi who has said that her readings are indistinguishable from those achieved by mentalists using cold reading and hot reading techniques.

Browne has made many false public predictions, such as that Bill Clinton was falsely accused in the Lewinsky scandal (proved incorrect), that George H. W. Bush would defeat Bill Clinton in the 1992 U.S. presidential election (Bush lost), and that Shawn Hornbeck was dead, when he was found alive. According to James Randi her accuracy rate has been no better than educated guessing.[21]

Gary Dufresne, Browne's first husband said in a February 10, 2007 interview that he does not think Sylvia has any paranormal abilities, and that she admitted it, saying that the gullible deserve to be taken advantage of.[22]

Browne has often spoken of working with the police and FBI as a psychic detective, but according to The Skeptics Dictionary, in 21 of Browne's 35 cases, the details she gave were too vague to be verified, and in the remaining 14 Browne played no useful role.[23]


[edit] Legal issues and criminal conviction
In 1992, Browne and her estranged husband were indicted on several charges of investment fraud and grand theft.[24] The Superior Court of Santa Clara County, California, found that Browne and her husband sold securities in a gold-mining venture under false pretenses.[24] In at least one instance, they told a couple their US $20,000 investment was to be used for immediate operating costs.[25] Instead, the money was transferred to an account for their Nirvana Foundation for Psychic Research.[24] Browne pled no contest to securities fraud and was indicted on grand larceny in Santa Clara County, California on May 26, 1992.[26]

Sylvia and her estranged husband Kenzil Dalzell Brown pleaded no contest to a felony charge of "sale of security without permit," made restitution, and received one year probation each.[24] Dalzell's disposition included "County Jail 4 months with credit for time served of 21 days," while Sylvia's included 200 hours of community service.[24]


[edit] Sago Mine controversy
In January 3, 2006, Browne stated on the radio program Coast to Coast AM that the miners in the 2006 Sago Mine disaster would be found. At the time it was believed, due to erroneous news reports, that 12 of the 13 trapped miners had been found alive, but when it became known that these reports were incorrect, Browne said "I don't really think there's anybody alive".[27] Browne said later that she never specifically stated that the miners would be found alive, only that they would be found.


[edit] The $1,000,000 challenge
On September 3, 2001, Browne stated on Larry King Live that she would accept the James Randi Educational Foundation's $1,000,000 challenge to demonstrate psychic abilities in a controlled scientific test.[28] However, as of 2007, Browne has failed to contact the Foundation or respond to Randi's enquiries.


[edit] Missing persons
Browne has made false predictions in several missing persons cases, including those of Holly Krewson,[29][30] Opal Jo Jennings,[31] Lynda McClelland, [32], Ryan Katcher,[33] and Shawn Hornbeck.[34]

all psychics are complete fakes. The power of suggestion is all it is. I really enjoyed watching this fake stumble over her words. The funniest part of the second one was when she realized she was WAY off and starts telling them how pretty their daughter was........holy geez.

I can't make up mind on who I hate more, the "psychics" or the retards who believe them. Fuck'em both, with a brick. And how about Montel sitting there trying to make up excuses for that hole, another reason for me to hate that knitter. I just amazes me that people watch this crap and believe it.

I used to have to do some work for a psychic lady who lived out on a ranch with a locked gate. She was paranoid as hell and told me to call first and give a code word and she would unlock the gate for me. I always wondered why I had to call first, shouldn't she know I am coming? And when I would call and give my code word, she wouldn't have a clue who I was until I explained the whole thing over again. But people say she stays up all night taking calls for $$$ per minute and she is loaded.

Several years back some big psychic network went under and all the psychics showed up for work to find a pink slip. Some comedian said they all were saying, wow, who saw this coming?
