2022 In Psychics Scamming People Out Of Lots And Lots Of Money

For the love of everything, do not give these people your money.

When one is going through a difficult time in life — the loss of a loved one, romance issues, financial issues, etc. — it can be tempting to believe the problem can be solved by magic. Literal magic, sometimes. Thus, there are thousands and thousands of people across the country and on the internet waiting to take advantage of that impulse in order to line their own pockets. And unlike professionals of literally any other kind, they are not required to produce any actual results because they are "for entertainment purposes only."

How fabulously entertaining it is for people to be told they need to cough up hundreds or thousands (or even millions) of dollars to end a "family curse" I'm not so sure — but as a polite reminder to definitely not ever do that, here are some of the scammiest psychics this year, mostly courtesy of the BBB's Scamtracker.

SHOCKER! Suspect Arrested In Idaho Murders Not Who TikTok Psychic Said It Would Be!

We're sure she's very sorry, or not!

An arrest has been made in the horrific murders of four University of Idaho students — and shockingly enough, it is not in fact the history professor that TikTok psychic Ashley Guillard has been accusing for weeks.

Bryan Christopher Kohberger, 28, was taken into custody by police in Monroe County, Pennsylvania, and held for extradition on suspicion of having killed Kaylee Goncalves, Madison Mogen, Xana Kernodle, and Ethan Chapin in the early hours of November 13. Two other roommates actually slept through the attacks and called 911 the next morning, thinking one of the victims had merely passed out and wouldn't wake up.

'Psychic' Sued By Professor She Baselessly Insists Killed Four People

And she's sticking to her story.

On November 13, four University of Idaho students were stabbed to death in their off-campus residence. Since then, rumors have swirled around the internet, police have received thousands of tips and the case has so far not gone anywhere.

One person, however, is very sure she knows who did it. Ashley Guillard doesn't know any of the victims and she lives in Texas, but she swears she knows for a fact that the murderer is none other than the university's history department chair, Rebecca Scofield. How does she know this? Because her magic tarot cards and psychic powers told her so.

For the last month, Guillard has been on TikTok, where she frequently uses her magic powers to "solve" mysteries, accusing Scofield of having killed the students over an affair she was having with one of the female victims. The cards told her there were two killers and that one of them was a professor, and when she looked at them, the word "history" kept coming into her mind. So she did readings for all of the University of Idaho history faculty and the one she did for Scofield told her Scofield had ordered the killing of the four roommates, because she was jealous and scared she would get in trouble for having an affair with a student should it come out.

Iowa 'Psychic' Barred From Magically Healing People After Client's Death

Why is this allowed to begin with?

An Iowa psychic has agreed to pay a $2000 fine and barred from offering to "heal, cure, treat, prevent, or mitigate clients’ physical or mental health" following the suicide death of a client she "misdiagnosed."

According to a report from the Iowa Attorney General's office, 53-year-old Craig Courtney sought help from psychic medium "healer" Allison Campbell following a fall in his home. Campbell had advertised her healing services and purposely sought people with “with at least one physical illness or injury that they would like worked on" despite having no medical background and also sought to help people with mental health issues she was similarly unqualified to address.

Becky Courtney, his widow, filed a consumer complaint in which she explained that her husband saw Campbell three times for "healing" and other services, and was told by Campbell that his entire body was filled with cancer and that he would undergo one surgery and then die within three-to-five months. Not wanting to deal with any of that, Craig Courtney committed suicide in July of this year.

He did not, of course, have cancer.
