George Tupak's Psychic Business Ends with Angela, Angel Medium: Review
A Real Shaman
Tupak is Gone, Forever
George Tupak, online shaman who claims Native American ancestry and powers, is suddenly on "shamanic retreat," his website says, meaning he has abandoned clients who had financial arrangements with him. This marks the end of a six-year-old fake-psychic enterprise that won him 32 (yes, thirty-two) Twitter followers. Between December 2016 and February 2017, that Twitter account was de-activated.
I've posted reviews about Tupak since the site's debut in 2011. Seeking a fresh free reading in November 2016 I was surprised, after one month of emails, when he tossed my account to "Angela, Angel Medium," a new entry on the online-psychic scene.
Soon after I requested my free reading Tupak had emailed that he was "interested in my case," and sent a gift: a list of 12 totem animals each matched with a zodiac sign, a "shamanic zodiac." Real Native Americans have no such thing. They call those spreading misinformation about their beliefs "plastic shamans."
Tupak's free reading asserted that he was "never wrong," and that I'm "swimming in troubled waters" with negative people. That isn't true. Throughout this bland and generic reading Tupak offered me a Great Dated Visionary Analysis for $79. I waited for a better deal. Fake psychic sites often reduce their prices if you hesitate.
After four silent days Tupak's new email said, "I'm not sure why, but it seems you're having a hard time making a decision." I'd been busy pondering why Tupak's website owners, Kandinsky & Partners Ltd. in Hong Kong, process Tupak refunds through Gibraltar in North Africa, while Tupak's P.O. box is in a suburb of Chicago.
Tupak Tosses Me to "Angela"
Well, now Tupak is gone, but this is how he rolled, and how a lot of other online psychics try to wear down your resistance, with nagging emails:
On Nov. 23, eight days after our first contact, Tupak asked why I was wasting my life "when I can give you everything you need to change it and fulfill all your desires." Now his emails began to crowd the inbox:
Nov. 24: "Sylvia, it would be a shame to miss out on this!"
Nov. 27: "Bad luck doesn't have to be your fate, Sylvia!"
Nov. 28: "This is your path to success in life!"
On Nov. 30, Tupak sent the news that he was leaving for a shamanic retreat and advised me to contact Angela, who was waiting to hear from me. Who the heck is Angela?!?!
Tupak Scolds, Cuts His Price Twice
On Dec. 1, the very next day, Tupak was back from his retreat because he emailed "I Can Change Your Life, Sylvia!" not mentioning his substitute Angela.
Dec. 2, Tupak emailed that I could have my "dream-life" within 30 days but I'd lose it if I didn't respond. The following day a long Tupak email scolded me for living without willpower and refusing his friendship. He said he knows that "one of these days, USD 50,000 is going to fall straight into" my bank account. Then he offered my Great Visionary Analysis, discounted to $59.
Finally, the discount! But if he knows I'm getting $50,000, why reduce his price?
On Dec. 4 Tupak told a story: His client Joyce, age 64, a widow, won $3 million with numbers from Tupak's Great Visionary Analysis. While shopping she met her old flame from 40 years ago and now they're in love. "I, Tupak, know all of life's secrets, all the shortcuts and the ways to solve all your problems," Tupak wrote, and assured me I'd get my money back if my reading wasn't satisfying.
Dec. 5: "Your situation worries me," the day's email from Tupak said, and again it included the story of lucky 64-year-old Joyce.
Dec. 7: "Sylvia, don't miss out!"
Dec. 10: Yet another discount! Tupak's "I'd be really disappointed, Sylvia, if. . ." included a link to a big gassy online form letter saying, "I can't believe you're being so stubborn," and offering the Visionary Analysis for $39.
Stunningly, on Dec. 15: Tupak says: "Goodbye. . .This is it. . .I will miss you. . .I will continue to watch you from afar" adding "Ask Angela to perform your angelical reading." Who is this "unparalleled medium" Angela?
Guardian Angel: God's Servant,or Mine?
Meet Angela, "Angel Medium"
Calling herself "medium of the angels for more than 40 years and angelic tarot expert," Angela, exactly like Tupak, is owned by Kandinsky & Partners Ltd. of Hong Kong, who established Angela's site in February 2016.
Angel lore says angels are God's servants and not my servants, but "Angela" presents guardian angels as guides, buddies, wish-fulfilling genies, and eager to tell my future. This made me uneasy. The Bible and Qur'an describe angels bringing God's messages to people always one-on-one, with no medium necessary.
Tupak's email that day had said, "I know your potential. It would be a pity if you spoilt it." So I sent Angela my information, and "she" emailed a short "orison" or prayer, and my "secret word of invocation" for contacting my guardian angel Umabel ("Don't be afraid of mispronouncing his name, he will recognize himself"). After a four-day ritual I should say the secret word "Umabel" three times, and repeat that when I need good luck.
Ultimately, Angela wanted $69 for her angel Tarot reading. I don't know any reader who charges that much for starters except "Padre," a proven fake online angel medium who asks $103--and actually advertises on Angela's homepage.
Angela's ludicrous "spiritual store" sells an angelic melody for $19 and an ebook about angelic salt magic for $9. "Salt magic" has a history, but it is not very popular because it doesn't work.
All this from both Tupak and Angela who don't exist, who aren't and never were real people--and I wasn't persuaded to pay for any readings yet. I'm stubborn about not buying computerized generic life advice from the Net, and I hope you are too.
Goodbye, "Tupak," corporate entity. The truth, and bad reviews your site deserved, destroyed you.
