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.

If fraud has been committed, report it to Action Fraud.
