Looking into the future can be very costly with psychic scams.

One of the world's oldest scams involves the science of astrology.  These tricks are performed by self proclaimed gypsies and psychics who promote an ability to peer deep into the future.  One such scam was portrayed on ABC's 20/20 sometime ago.  The story revolved around a gypsy fortune-teller who found grotesque materials such as blood, black bile and insects in an egg brought to her by a client.  The gypsy informed the client that the contents of the egg signified the presence of a deadly curse, one that requires a significant amount of money to reverse.

In actuality, the egg brought in by the client was slyly replaced by one polluted in advance by the gypsy.  While this may seem like an obvious scam to some, the client may not be able to detect it.  If so, the gypsy's ploy wouldn't be so effective.  On rare occasions there may be strange things found in an egg that hasn't been touched.  Still, no legitimate psychic, gypsy or spell-caster would ever remotely suggest that such findings represent a ghastly curse, let alone charge such a ridiculous fee to eradicate it.  

Creating an addition for the future

In addition to that, few of these exploits offer any actual resolve to a client.  These so called psychics make a living by preying on the weak.  Dollar signs fill their crystal balls upon meeting someone who appears desperate, depressed or suicidal.  These individuals are obviously in an emotional state and more susceptible to falling for this scam. 

You should keep in mind that no psychic or manipulator of mystical arts will ever be able to solve all of your problems.  It doesn't matter how long the practice has been in their family, or how talented and sincere they appear to be.  Individuals suffering from emotional, mental or behavioral disorders make perfect targets. 

Finding true metaphyiscal professionals

Many metaphysical professionals in this field possess the highest of ethical standards.  They are genuine and have a strong desire to assist those in serious need.  At the same time, you must be well aware that many more of them are scam artists looking to make a quick buck.  These individuals have no morals and are motivated by green.  They operate by making impressive revelations, things so believable they just have to be true.  Several of them will employ psychological scare tactics that are damaging to a vulnerable individual.  They may charge inordinate fees, encouraging the client's dependency while stroking their ego at the same time. 

Problems are a part of life.  While at times it's much easier to run to someone else for a solution, many of these issues can be solved on your own accord.  When things are falling apart you can take refuge in positive activity.  This may include walking, exercise, creative visualization or daily meditative sessions.  These activities will help you achieve peace, balance and harmony from within you and your environment. 

In the event that you do feel as if you've been victimized by bad luck or black magic, there are fully qualified psychics, therapists and religious members who can help to confirm or refute these suspicions.  To limit the risk of being scammed all together, you can make use of your own intuition buy purchasing an inexpensive book on spiritual and ritual matters to help balance things out and help you find answers to life's troubling woes.

Identity theft comes in many forms.

A person\92s identity can be 'borrowed' for the purpose of creating fictional credit cards or a person\92s entire identity can be usurped to the point where they can have difficulty proving that they really are who they claim to be.

Up to 18% of identity theft victims take as long as four years to realize that their identity has been stolen.

There are many ways to protect your personal identity and many steps you can take to prevent your identity from being stolen:

*Never give out unnecessary personal information
*Never provide bank details or social security numbers over the Internet
*Always remain aware of who is standing behind you when you type in your personal credit codes at ATM machines and at supermarket checkout swipe machines.
