Horoscope Review: Notorious "Norah"'s PremiumAstrology.com Site Is Forced Off the Net
The Ballad of PremiumAstrology.com
"Norah," the psychic of "Premiumastrology.com," at one time offered free readings and paid readings, but hundreds of online complaints about bad service and slow refunds forced the website to shut down in mid-2015, despite a desperate last-minute public-relations campaign. The site posted the message you see above, leaving remaining customers high and dry and bitter. Premiumastrology.com wasn't real astrology or even close. Its 22-part legal disclaimer said that all Norah's readings are only entertainment and the corporation was not responsible for whatever happens if you take it as serious advice.
Premiumastrology.com showed signs of desperation long ago. It was heavily advertised with text ads saying "Scary Accurate Horoscope" or "Shocking Online Horoscope," although no real astrologer would ever say horoscopes are "scary" or "shocking." Real astrologers never want to scare people; they want to help them. In 2010 "Norah's" homepage featured a young brunette as astrologer "Norah," but as of Feb. 2011, the model who represents "Norah" suddenly became an old white-haired lady. That exact photo happened to be a stock photo used on at least 28 different sites, evidence that "Norah" is not an astrologer or psychic, or even a person. The photo is a front for a French company that also featured "Jenna" the psychic at Aboutastro.com, another notorious URL shut down in 2014 and now resurrected as The-Astrology.com.
In response to hundreds of online complaints about Norah and PremiumAstrology.com the site was again made over so that a "Helpdesk" for customer complaints covered fully half the homepage. The online chat help was evasive and finally unavailable. Potential customers wanting to learn about their futures learned instead that before buying any online psychic or "horoscope" services, they ought to Google and read a few dozen of the "shocking" and "scary" reviews posted by former clients.
Face of a Scam
Where "Norah" is Now
If you're a customer Norah left hanging, or she is still charging your credit card, you used to be able to go to "Norahguide.com" and find the phone number, or try to access the "24/7 Helpdesk" that was always offline. But as of spring 2016 there is no more "Norahguide." I think you're out of luck.
Still believe Norah might have the answers? Well, then, at her new site or wherever she is now, enter your name, email, birth date, time and place, plus information never needed to make a real horoscope such as a "wish" you choose from a drop-down menu: "Find New Love," "Fix Old Love," "Money," and so on. Your "reading" will arrive in 24 hours and contain a link to a long, long message which is entirely computerized, and everyone gets the same one, with only the name and zodiac Sun sign changed. Clients were advised to send any questions to Norah at a mailbox in Las Vegas. Now that's service!
The computerized mini-reading could apply to anyone ("some of the obstacles that have stood in your way have remained simply because there’s no easy and ideal solution"). It declares that a lucky "transit" of planets is coming your way, but you must pay $87 for a transit guide because only "Norah" knows when you should act to get your "wish." But it's smarter not to pay in the first place, because there is no "Norah." There is only a corporation that extracts money from anxious or ignorant people.
No wonder, then, why Premiumastrology.com went belly up and Norahguide vanished. Premiumastrology.com does not deliver real astrology or readings, it never did, and karma's a b. Want to consult Norah? You have been warned.
