With the immense exposure of Internet, distinguishing between a real and fake psychic is necessary before you spend precious dollars on psychic readings. Fake psychics are there to capitalize on people’s sentiments and take advantage. Do not let it happen to you. Here are the basic pointers to help you distinguish between a real and a fake psychic reader:

- Real psychics will only ask for your Name and birthday. Fake psychics will ask for your Name, and your Astrological sign. They do so because the date of birth will help them to locate your day’s forecast from the newspaper and then send the same information out to you in a rehashed manner.

- Real psychics will not ask for your details. Knowing the name is enough for them. Fake psychics cannot give your psychic reading unless they know what country you are from and what kind of life you lead. Therefore, if a psychic questions you about your social status and your educational background, know that it is a fake.

- Real psychics will not beat their own drum, that is, they will not boast how famous they are or how many famous world leaders come to them for consultation. If they are world famous, one will already know about them beforehand. In contrast, a fake psychic reader will always boast of his/her popularity.

- Real psychics will not make false promises. Fake psychic readers will make all kinds of false promises like they will cast a spell on your lover to bring him / her back or that they will give you some lucky numbers that will win you millions in lottery. These are just gimmicks. Do not fall for them.

- Real psychics will be eager and interested to clear your doubts and answer questions you ask them. Fake psychic readings avoid clients who test them. If the ‘supposed’ psychic does not give you a general reading or answer to your questions first, he/she is a real con artist. In contrast, a real psychic reading will give you a general outline of your past, present and future that not everyone will be aware about.

- Real psychics will not manipulate you. The real psychic will have interest in answering your questions and guide you rather than maneuvering to draw out more information from you. Fake psychic readers will be the opposite of real psychics. They will try to draw more information about you, process it and then give the same information back to the person in the form of ‘answers’. Since the ‘answer’ is delivered in such a convincing way that the gullible ones will fall prey to the illusion.

- Real psychics will have genuine concern for you and will try to help you out of your situation. A fake psychic worries only about financial gains and will say only those things to the client that they ‘want to hear’. They are so manipulative that they will make you spill the information they want without you ever realizing it.
