Horoscope Review: Zoradamus Exploits the Dead Astrologer Madame Soliel

Zoradamus is "N. Zora" Now and Stealing a Dead Woman's Name

France's most famous astrologer, who died in 1996, sent me emails from beyond the grave. Was I surprised! Of course the emails were not actually from the late Germaine Soliel (1913-1996), advisor to French politicians and movie stars. An impostor is using her name, slightly misspelled -- and the email is really from "Zoradamus," a fake online astrologer-clairvoyant based in France and exposed by Horoscope Review in August 2011.

Knowing we all laughed at "her" name, Zoradamus Medium has renamed herself in these emails "Zora, Personal Astral Adviser" but uses text identical to the usual set of emails, with the same bad grammar and misspellings. "She" says she located me with psychic power and begged me to accept her "free clairvoyance" offer. When I did not respond, "Germaine Solliel" sent a second email from Zora, who wrote, "I don't understand the people who refuse to open their door to a woman like me who can serve them luck on a plate!" She continued with a threat: "There are happy days for those who trust me and very sad days for the others!" Of course I did not reply.

The next email's subject line reads, "I hope your computer has not broken down Sylvia" and tells me my "astral energies" were "irresistible" to her. Just as before, "Zora," who is still "Zoradamus" on her website, foresees a big lottery win for me. I'm still waiting for the win she promised in August. As proof that she is a "bot," a totally computerized entity, and not a woman or even a person, I simply clicked on a link that exposed the URL "http://machine.zoradamusmedium.com/admin/log_mails/webcopy/878368/10005." I suppose "Zora" hopes you don't notice she calls herself a machine or posts "webcopy" instead of the very personal readings she claims, and "bots" emails that gush to everyone on her mailing list, "Just being in touch with you is such a pleasure and honor." If you don't answer her emails, you'll eventually get one saying, "One day everyone will abandon you and you won't understand why."

I've investigated and reviewed Zoradamus and am finished with "her," but I want to express outrage at the shameful way the site's owner, Millennium Institute, Inc., registered in Panama, exploited a dead astrologer's name in hopes of making a Euro or two by misleading a mostly European target audience who may have heard of Soleil. Soliel (her real name) was so prominent that even French President Georges Pompidou publicly joked about not being able to predict events as she did. And "Germaine's" return address is sender@oxalismail.com, a dot-com based in France and created on Oct. 21, 2011, about eight weeks after Horoscope Review exposed "Zoradamus" as a robot and told the whole Internet not to take her bait.

What's an "oxalis"? It's the botanical name for the shamrock, traditionally a lucky token. If you get emails from "Germaine Solliel," or "N. Zora," delete them before opening.

It never ceases to disgust me what some people will do to make money. How do they sleep at night? Thanks for exposing this, Ms. Sylvia.

Voted up, useful and interesting.

Thank you, Ms. Zen. Zoradamus must be getting very desperate for customers.

And to think i was minutes away from giving her my money. I thought it was too good to be true. I had my doubts. So then everything is a fake.

Always, before buying services, Google the name of any psychic or astrologer and look for complaints, reviews, or recommendations.


xass 4 years ago

But believe me, obtaining nice letter with words of sympathy, is sometimes very inspiring and helpful if U are desperate in life. So do not hesitate to pay nice boys who are working hard making that server with helpful scripts, sent to U.

SylviaSky 4 years ago from USA Author

Oh, xass....the people paying Zoradamus are paying for what they hope are psychic readings, not paying nice boys working hard on servers. If you work on "her" servers let "her" pay you.

hi im from bs as argentina the same mail to my!!!

other think is many thinks are happen to my and i don't now why ... spiritual thinks


Hannah_Peace 4 years ago

i've just received a email from a lady called, N.Zora from the email sender@oxalismail.com . saying: your (my name and birthday)..

If you're indeed the person I'm looking for then I invite you to visit my website without delay as I'd like to give you your free clairvoyance.

I have personal and confidential revelations for you.

it goes on saying. why i should etc. now if she could actually say something to me that no one else could know then i might believe her. something that isn't on a profile etc. anyway i guessing this may be the same lady? maybe.????

SylviaSky 4 years ago from USA Author

Yes, it is the same robot, now calling itself N. Zora because the above article exposed the misuse of a dead astrologer's name, and I also personally emailed the company expressing outrage.


older-wiser 4 years ago

Hi Sylvia, I'm new to your Hub and it makes for interesting reading. In the past I have also received emails from these fakes, so obvious that I have just deleted them, but they must make millions from those who are desperate. Can you recommend some genuine psychic's or astrologer's for us?


SylviaSky profile image

SylviaSky 4 years ago from USA Author

Genuine psychics are extremely rare, one in a hundred million, and do not advertise on the Net -- or anywhere else. Think: How could one individual carefully and responsibly handle hundreds of requests for readings every day, 24/7/365? It is not humanly possible! Even a dozen a day would be pushing it. If you call a psychic hotline the readings are legally "for entertainment only," and only you can decide whether it's entertainment that you want. However, there are genuine astrologers who have websites or write columns, and will do personal, customized readings, and I list some in an article titled "Get Real Answers from Real Astrologers for $10 and Up." http://hubpages.com/religion-philosophy/RealAnswer...

That's not a complete list either, but it's a start. Customized personal readings are like customized anything: They don't come cheap. Good astrologers are trained, experienced professionals and are worth what they charge.

Just thought I would let you know that I'm located in Canada and these emails are being sent here as well. I have been receiving them for some time and am not fooled by these types of solicitation.

Always be wary of someone contacting you online to offer you something "free"


B92 4 years ago

My email came from "Zora", no "N", saying the same things, my full name and date of birth. This is the first and i guess there ll be more of them.


rusty4665 4 years ago

Sylvia, This woman seems to be scamming worldwide. The best thing to do is for somebody to report her to INTERPOL for fraud and identidy theft. She needs to be stopped now.

HELP!

Do not open Zoradamus' emails. That lets "her" know you're a live person and curious. When you see them in your inbox, delete them. Or mark them as spam. Use the block function of your email to block emails coming from her dot.com.


Caroline 4 years ago

I've so far received around 5, maybe more, e-mails from 'Zora'. Her latest one was my favourite yet as she states

"Last night I was watching a report on television about children who work at the bottom of mines. I said to myself that in 2010 it’s very unfortunate to still see such practices due to destitution".

She must be speaking to me from the past as I see no other explanation to why she thinks it's still 2010 :P As always, I keep ignoring her, but it is starting to get irritating just how mean she's becoming :/


Christine 4 years ago

I started receiving her emails too, telling me she "just doesn't understand me"!!! I laugh at how frustrated she is with me for not responding back to her by ordering my free confidential clairvoyance!!!


massimo 4 years ago

Sono rimasto fregato anch,io ma per una volta ho mandato15 euro speranzoso in una risposta ma evidentemente è una frode bella e buona per gli increduloni come me . Fa niente io per 14 15 euro sono sempre lo stesso ma chi fa questo e ancora piu meschino dei soldi ....... IMBROGLIONI

Software translation of the Italian: "I have been swindled [like] you too, I but for once I sent 15 euros hopeful for a response but it is clearly a fraud beautiful and good for the unbelievers like me. I got nothing for 14 15 euro. Always the same, but who does this and even more petty money...CHEATERS"


Mark Boulton 4 years ago

'Software translation of the Italian' what exactly is this? untracible zora seems to be as use are saying it's a scam then who really has the answer to that? no one? its like shes just popped up on the world wide web and no one has a clue that is strange an its even stanger how shes know everythin about me even things that i obviously i have secret to myself that are more than personal to me but she knew she didn't scam my money she sent what she promised surley am not the only one


Mark Boulton 4 years ago

sorry i haven't registed yet i will when someone replys with 'Answers' i left my name though yes and im real im no bot god lol, this aint no robot and god it would take more than any software on this planet to do this so that's why i wana know why you say 'Software translation of the Italian' i need to know well i would like to know i thought man made the robot if shes a robot well shes much quicker and more on it than the human mind and if people are knowleged enough to know as obviously some of us are and i am one i know the fastest thing on this planet oh yes its 'The Human Mind' so how can this possibly be a robot? who ever has the answer to this one? oh you're beyond good ? ? ?

"Massimo" posted a comment to my article in the Italian language. I do not read Italian so I put it through online software that translated it into English. It seems Massimo was very dissatisfied with what he received from Zoradamus, calling that bot's operators "IMBROGLIONI" or, in English, "CHEATERS." If you are satisfied with what you received from Zoradamus, I am glad for you. It is people such as yourself who keep this "bot" in business. However, a quick Google of "Zoradamus" will reveal hundreds of complaints.

I'm getting junk email from Zoradamus as well, and I live in the U.S.A. Apparently, Zora is feeling emboldened. One problem? She obviously thinks I'm a rich gal who can drop everything for her! I can barely squeak by right now, and what little free spending money I get is going towards art pencils and markers. Not some shifty psychic scam. I've never once opened one of 'her' emails, and after reading this, it makes me feel glad I haven't.

If she was so brilliant, why couldn't 'she' use some of that psychic energy to find out that 'she' was trying to scam someone who can barely scrape two dollar bills together?

Nice try, Zora scam. Nice try.

I thank you for sharing this, and for putting me on my guard about Zoradamus.


Susan 4 years ago

I'm also getting stuff from her. she is stating that if I don't send her $19.95 soon, my luck and fortune will have moved on to someone else.

She said that on Friday, July 13th, 2012 is when I would become a millionaire, maybe even a Billionaire, but if I don't pay for the spells,ect. I will no longer be full of luck ect.


Hibbiscus 4 years ago

I'd decided to look into this "Zora" after noticing the signature was an address being in Panama. Not wrong with that, just thought it slightly odd. The email itself looks cheap and as some else mentioned it has bad grammer. I am grateful for looking this information up as I was tempted to click on the link. The word free is like a large "Do Not Touch" sign. You know it's bad but you just have to go for it anyway.


yapstick 4 years ago

I`m getting junk email from Zora and i live in England.

I started receiving her emails telling me she "just doesn`t understand me for not responding dack to her", ive so far received around 6 emails, her next reply was to lower it from 139.00 pounds to 79.00.
