Clairvoyant scams

Psychic and clairvoyant scams happen when a fraudster approaches you to tell you they have seen something either wonderful or terrible in your future. They ask for money in order to provide a full report about it.

The apparently psychic or clairvoyant fraudsters approach their victims by email, post, telephone call or even face-to-face.

They may tell you that you are in some kind of trouble, but can offer a solution in return for payment. They may claim to be able to give you winning lottery numbers, or offer to remove a curse.

The fraudsters tend to ask for an administration fee for their services.

Fraud has been committed if money has been lost.
