Horoscope Review: Life Answers.com Free Numerology by Jill Saint James
Is She Really a Man?
The Life-Answers.com ad said "You will be stunned. Shockingly accurate predictions OMG." So I input my information and email address on the "Life-Answers.com by Jill Saint James" homepage. Her name seemed familiar. I got a numerology reading instantly. That means the reading was computerized.
There is nothing wrong with computers doing numerology for fun. What is wrong is doing it for profit by fooling people that a master numerologist named Jill Saint James is running the business and can help you run your life. Who is this Jill St. James?
First, don't confuse her with movie stars Susan Saint James or Jill Saint John, or Jill St. James the gospel artist who's at jillstjames.com, or the deceased astrology columnist Joyce Jillson. Jill Saint James was pictured on her 2001 website but has no photo or bio on Life-Answers and no website at jillsaintjames.com. She has two Facebook accounts, one calling herself male, the other female. The male account has nothing but an image of a piece of the Life-Answers logo. The "female" account has 4 friends and no photo and one post, from 2011, a numerological profile of Kate Middleton. Her flickr.com account lists her as male, but the photos there aren't of her/him; they are stock-type photos for a numerology website.
More importantly, Ripoff Reports lists eight complaints about Jill Saint James, three of them from November and December 2012, and one alleges that Jill Saint James and numerologist Jhair Jamin deliver identical readings. I believe it, because investigating HoroscopeAuthority.com, a numerology site, I found its free readings identical to those from Life-Answers.com.
Clearly some monkey business is afoot. Your free sample might be fun but it is short and has no predictions, shocking or otherwise. Expect frequent emails warning that dark days lie ahead if you don't call on Jill, and "I am concerned that your window of favorable circumstances will soon shut." No true diviner will ever try to unnerve you like that. Be aware that, quote, "The information and data contained on and through the Numerogy [sic] areas of the Life-Answers.com Web site is to be treated purely for your entertainment purposes only," and that clients with real-life problems should contact licensed professionals.
The free reading's accuracy was hit and miss: "[y]ou're under the influence of a 2 Destiny. This Destiny makes you well liked by others on account of your modest personality, supportive nature and ability to listen" (false), and that my brain is a marvel (true; every brain is). I'm also a "born story-teller and prankster" (false) and "march to the beat of a different drum." That's pretty trite. If you don't mind giving your private info to strangers, I suggest instead of Life-Answers the much better free mini-reading from numerologist.com.
My Life-Answers reading ended by offering a "Life Guide" package of readings for $40, saving me $400 off the regular price. The Life Guide is instant-delivery too. Whatever your questions about life might be, you shouldn't pay computers for answers.
