Psychic Clairvoyant's Harmless?
If it didn't cost people money and if some people didn't take them seriously, someone who claimed they were a psychicclairvoyant would be pretty much harmless, and probably wouldn't exist if many didn't take them seriously.
Of course others consider psychic readings as a form of harmless entertainment, and as long as they understand that, it's no big deal to part with their money if that's how they choose to spend it.
Do you ever notice the vast silliness of so-called psychics though? They can take any situation that would exist for almost anybody at any time of their lives, and twist it into looking like it has had some type of supernatural power giving them the wisdom.
How many times do you hear the nonsensical idea that you're going to find romance if you're single? Of course you are if you have any interest.
The one with alleged psychic powers just has to ask something like, "is your husband with you, girlfriend?" etc., to find out their state and then make their alleged prognostications on that easily ascertained information.
Psychic Clairvoyant hoax?
But some psychics are the "best" psychics
Of course you've got those claiming to know the "best psychics," especially when they're online psychics, where they can play any little game and sham they want to make their money and make people believe they're for real.
Think of those that claim past readings. All you have to do is understand human nature in the simplest manner to be able to tell people either what their past was, or what their ancestors past was. That's easy to do, as every family line will have everything from scoundrels to saints, and everything in between.

Hilarious names some psychics go by
What's really funny is to read the list of psychics on the search engine result pages. It's hilarious in many cases.
You've got the psychic ladies like Ann George, Tonya Somers and Mary Beth Wrenn, but it really gets funny when you catch some of the guys' names.
For example, you've got one guy passing himself of as Reverend Jeff, the "internationally-known clairvoyant. He also advertises his 18 years of experience, as if conning people for 18 years has some type of value for future clients.
Not to be out done, the ladies have their reverend psychic too in Reverend Cassandra, who "answers all you questions."
My absolute favorite psychic character has to be the one who advertises her native American background, and is also the "World Renowned Psychic" - Cherokee Billie.
Citing her direct connection to the Great Spirit, she doesn't need all that hocus pocus like tarot cards and such, she gets it straight from the source. Heehee.
And for just $1.50 a minute you can get direct advice from the Great Spirit via Cherokee Billie.
Other funny names are Dyanne Yellowlight, Angela Kahealani, and Mz. Mugzzi. No kidding on that last one.
High Tech Psychics
Now you have a psychic available through any medium you can think of. You still have the telephone psychics, but you also have the live psychics, email psychics, psychic chat rooms, interactive psychics, online psychics with their pyschic websites, and the list goes on.
You can be separated from you money in any number of ways now through any type of device and gadget.
Just like going to a job fair, you now have psychic fairs, psychic schools and mentoring to be trained as a psychic.
The most important has to be the psychic business side. You can't be a good psychic if you can't pay the bills ya know.

Why psychics are so popular
Many people go to psychics not because they really believe in them, but because it's just another form of entertainment.
But even with the age we live in which scorns the mystical in any form other than making TV shows about them, there is a natural hunger for spiritual things, and psychics are available because that understand that craving in people.
As long as there are human beings, there will always be psychics, as there will always be a hunger for the mystical and spiritual, and the desire to know what the future holds, even if it's never really being told.
