Horoscope Review: George Tupak, Visionary Psychic Shaman, Version 2.0

He's "George" Now and Smiling; Does It Make Him Less Fake?

Below, with the red theme, is a screenshot of Tupak the Visionary Shaman's website homepage as it looked from inception in 2011 until mid-August 2012. From their office in Hong Kong, the owners of "Tupak's" website maybe thought the unsmiling model chosen to represent their business wasn't attracting enough customers for $99 fake psychic readings. Behind this tough-looking "Tupak," named after an Inca warrior and a murdered rapper, is a backdrop of cosmic darkness. The red script looks as if it's written in blood; a bit scary.

The Makeover: How and Why

  • Now he's "George Tupak," and the pose and expression are friendlier
  • Blue is a calming color, less aggressive than the red theme.
  • The model's shaven head is less prominent. In the U.S. and some other places, a shaved head signifies "badass," meaning aggressive, tough, intimidating. The head is now also contained within the website's "banner" area, so it seems less aggressive than before.
  • Shirt is white instead of dark gray/black
  • He's backed by rays of light instead of cold cosmic darkness
  • The "dreamcatcher" on the right is gone! Maybe some real Native Americans complained that they didn't want a fake psychic business using an image of one of their sacred objects
  • Instead of "The man who can help you change your life!" it says "Take the lead!" This is probably because "Tupak" isn't a "man" but a robot email program, and also because "Tupak" didn't change any lives; complaints of false advertising were and still are piling up. It also implies that helping you isn't Tupak's responsibility; it's yours. (In that case, who needs him?)
  • The words "Visionary - Shaman" have a new, normalized typeface, easier to read.

Blue "George" looks less authoritative and more approachable, more like a therapist an unhappy person might befriend and confide in. The white shirt signifies "purity" while the dark gray/black shirt signified "mystery." The white clothes and beams of light also hint at Christian Resurrection imagery. Red "Tupak" led you into darkness, but blue "George Tupak" is a creature of light. Here's my review of Tupak's readings and services, in case you want more detail on those. What the website update boils down to is: Would a genuine visionary Shaman, in touch with divine forces, tone himself down and change his name so he'd seem more like a regular guy? You can be the judge of that.

The website's remaining text, and the services offered, are unchanged. It's a purely cosmetic website "facelift." To respect the owners' copyright, the screenshots analyzed here show only the top half of Tupak's homepage.

I don't believe any model in their right mind would agree to pose as this guy as I am sure many people are pissed with this him. If you look closely at his pic you will see the bald cap he has on. Admittedly, it is a very good one but I can see it. Tupak (or his hired public image) actually has a full head of hair! I am not so sure he is as fake as people want to believe. He has written to me personally in response to messages from me. These mails I have received from him are definitely not bulk mailings as they are short and directly responsive to what I wrote him. I would love to find a real review on this guy and not just peoples presumptions that he is yet another fake like so many others online.

I tried to get my money back, because he is still charging my credit card. No way....there is no way to get hold of him. I don't want to be in with his promises...they aren't true at all. Does anybody know how I can get my money back?

My "personalized" free reading used the wrong birth year. Perhaps I am really two years younger on the Chinese calendar than American. Use of "whilst" is very British for while and considered outdated. I have never heard or seen that word used except in British murder mysteries and once by a very good British friend. Looked up the legal company shown. Want to guess where it is located? Hong Kong and opened it's practice in 2008. Perhaps that means a long lived legal firm in Hong Kong but then what do know about China. I will not be purchasing the $99 personal reading or anything else from George's or Tupak's "Secret Botique."

Just got off from my 'personal' reading from George and wondered how he got it done so fast. The minute I hit the down button to scroll down the letter disappeared and I panicked. Two seconds later up popped a message from him saying how sorry he was that I had cancelled out but not a word about the full refund he promised. I tried everything since I thought I had hit the wrong button as usual and nada. But every time I came back to the 'in' box another message disappeared. So after I finished kicking myself for falling for another scam I went on the track. 1. Who noticed that he is wearing a bald wig? Look closely above his ear and you will see a line that continues around to the middle of his forehead before it disappears. He could walk right by us in his real hair and we'd never know him.

2. Who paid attention to the original letter where every thing was just cut and pasted (that's what caught my eye but I ignored it)? You can see the lines indicating that. But also notice the top had a note to insert "banner", which he didn't, and at the bottom it said to 'insert signature' which he didn't.

3. Time Stamp.

His time stamp was 4 hours AHEAD of me (I live in NY). This caught my eye as I rarely (as in never) get anything heading in that direction. My exes family came from Belgium so I know that is 6 hrs AHEAD of us. Phone calls always had to be carefully planned. Add to that he mentioned somewhere (think it was in one of the testimonials) that he had cacti growing in his back yard.) Put the two together and he lives on an island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean near the equator.

4.Guess what? His address is PO Box 1049, Streamwood, IL, 60107. (Which is 1 hour behind me. I'm in EST and Chicago is just over the border into CST.)I know it's just a mailbox but someone has to pick up the mail. Wonder if that's mail fraud? He does have to go to be PO to mail those necklaces.. Anybody live near there? Anybody have access to the white pages?

5. Hope nobody paid for that piece of his secret jewelry.. But he did knock the price down from $99 to $39.

6. Anybody got connections to anybody that we can report him to? or hack into to jam his webpage though he probably has many of those. I see one that says 'friends' and another that says 'Circle' and they are all" rejected by the server because it does not allow relaying" whatever that means.

7.We all had to use a credit card so call your bank asap and report him, put a stop payment on him. If you don't know what name he's using, give them the approximate date or have them look up the amount or when you get your statement call every person don't recognize and ask them who they are and what they sell.

8. Well, enough is enough, I have to go call my credit card. Might be wise to call your bank and warn them of the scam.

I'm open to the possibility of things I can't explain. ....I believe in old souls heaven &hell good &bad. It was an accident my finding him in my e-mails and him being so spot on about some things. . Never asked me for large amounts of cash nor miss used my credit card. If you look for the bad you will see only that if you put negative you get negative! I get a certain ring in my ears and sure enough a new e-mail.I'm a Gemini. .I put in exact hour of birth and get readings that ring true ...what I knew before he came along but I'm human and a haphazard runner do I foul up what could be.if you don't like him then unsubscribe!
