The Truth About Keen Psychics Scams
Keen is a website dedicated to allowing customer to receive readings from psychics, card readers, fortune tellers and more. The site puts each customer in contact with a person claiming to have these abilities, who then interacts with and charges a person for their services. There have been complaints of Keen psychics scams as a result of this service.
People who are in some kind of predicament or distress often turn to someone who claims to be able to tell the future to see if there is hope on the horizon. Some will pay money to do so, even exorbitant sums. The problem is that people in these types of situations are often desperate, and someone unscrupulous could easily take advantage of their emotional state.
Though some who work for Keen are honest and will only charge a fair fee, others will charge more. The real problems arise when they charge or do more than they said they would. This takes a service that some find questionable and puts it squarely in illegal territory.
A good example of a scam is a Keen vendor who engages in credit card fraud. Many of the readings are performed over the phone or through online chat. A credit card is asked for in order to charge the customer a fee that is agreed upon up front. Some dishonest vendors instead overcharge or hit the credit card up for multiple charges, stealing money from the vulnerable customer.
When a vendor asks a customer for personal information, they often claim to be doing so in order to get a better reading on their future. The problem is that they could be using that info along with the credit card number to steal their identity. If a person is distressed enough and convinced that the psychic will help them, they may even give up financial information such as social security number of bank accounts.
Identity theft is a serious problem. It ruins credit, and makes it very hard to regain your foothold on your financial future. Most people don’t realize their identity has been stolen until weeks or months later, when the damage is already done. All of this just causes more undue stress on a person who clearly already has enough of it in their lives.
Some claim to have supernatural powers that can assists a person through the casting of spell or hexes. Extra money is asked for in these cases, sometimes large amounts. Much of it is sent through Western Union because with credit cards, a person can ask for a chargeback if they feel they are being scammed. With Western Union it is harder to get refunded, so this is the method of choice for these scam artists.
Not all psychic workers are scam artists, but there are enough of them that any potential customer should be wary. Always be careful when giving your credit card number or any other personal information over the web. It could end up in a mountain of debt and paperwork that is a huge burden. As with any purchase, buyer beware of Keen psychics scams.
