spsreviewforum spsreviewforum.com Spsreviewforum.com fake psychic website poses to expose scams but advertises psychics, Internet
1st of Nov, 2011 by User755489
There is a new psychic scam called the Spells and Spirits Review Forum ( ). This is a forum claiming to expose scammers but in fact promotes psychics, deletes threads and will ban you if you post a claim contrary to one of their "approved psychics." Most of these are sellers of "spirit objects" and psychic readings on eBay. The tagline of the website is "Seeking for true and genuine online practitioners." Very telling. Let me start by saying if you are claiming that some psychics are "real" while others are "fake" then you are already part of the scam. I made an account just to browse the forums and the administrator of the forum, who goes by the name "Hope," sent me this PM: "Hi, welcome to the forum. Please be careful as there are many scammers here who will try to take advantage of you! If you are looking for a psychic or genuine practitioner I recommend the Association of Independent Readers and Rootworkers (AIRR) (readersandrootworkers.org), Spirited Enterprise (Spiritedenterprise.com) or Life Spirit Socitey of Magick (lifespiritssocietyofmagick.com). Beware of the exposed scammers - they have been proven false time and time again! Please also check Ripoff Report and do your research to find a genuine practitioner." I made a different account and I was given the same message, but with three other websites. So I looked through the forums. There is a member's only section that markets and promotes many "genuine online practitioners" as per the tagline (lol) while at the same time "exposing" other psychics. Many of the discussions on exposed psychics consist of little more than "Comes from Nigeria, stay away." All of the psychics are scams, but they aren't exactly putting these people through the Randi challenge. Anything from Nigeria is almost certainly a scam. This forum is also a marketing scam to promote psychics. It is not a forum that actually "exposes" psychics beyond the select few that it chooses. This is a marketing tactic to gain confidence. Or you could simply say it is a con. You should know that these are all scams. A search on Ripoff Report confirms that this is a scam originating from Singapore. Others have been asked to send money to Singapore directly on the website. Folks, sending money to Singapore is like sending money to Nigeria. A quick review of the forum will show you that most of the posts are made by the same group of 5-10 individuals. Most are likely the same person. They could be a small group of "psychics" who banded together to promote their own circle of websites. All of the other accounts are spurious with very few posts (less than 10-20). This is what happens when spammers use forums as marketing tools. There is no real group of actual active posters like you would expect in a real forum. I attempted to make one thread as a test. It was short and simple. I wrote "I bought a spirit item from Spiritedenterprise.com but there was no spirit inside." It was deleted in less than 20 minutes and I was IP banned from the forum.

I am a member of SPS Reviews forum and have been for over a year. Previously it was title Spells Scams Reviews. I stand befind it 100 percent. It is just consumers sharing their experiences. There is no promoting, or bribery of any kind. If someone comes on advertising they are banned. We all agree NOT to do that when joining. That's different from sharing our truthful experiences, both good and bad. This poster is blantantly fabricating things.

Hope the owner/founder works tirelessly to make and keep the forum a safe and ethical forum. She would never bribe or in anyway insist on any payment, or guide someone to a particular spellcaster or psychic. Now that we have change servers a donation link is set up just for those who would like to contribute. Thanks to her and to the many contributors many have been saved money and research time.

I am Hope, owner and founder of the spsreviewforum.com (former spellscams.freeforumsblog.com/)

This report is part of a defamation campaign started against me and my forum by a group of scammers exposed on the forums.

We have been bullied and harassed by this group for the last few months.

Anyone interested in reading about all the fake reports and lies about us, feel free to visit the forum, we have a topic with the links to all the reports I find.
http://www.spsreviewforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=526

The accusations go from ridiculous to risible, so far they claim the forum is run by a "group psychics", Hope blackmails physics, Hope spam email accounts, Hope steals personal information, , Hope deletes posts, Hope bans members, Hope extorts members, Hope charges for referrals, Hope is a member of an organized crime, Hope is a psychic in Singapore, a woman in India, Hope is from UK, Hope is associated to psychics and spellcasters, Hope owns spellcasters sites, Hope invents fake casters, Hope promotes sites, Hope is another scammer, Hope is vindictive ... and the list goes on and on, when all that Hope does is to make it possible for members to EXPOSE SCAMMERS LIKE YOU, making up lies and fake reports about Hope and the forum is not going to make us go away.

Last month they sent an email to the spallcasters and psychics discussed and exposed on the forum instigating them to file reports against us, this email says it all:

You have been featured on the websites spellscams.freeforumsblog.com and spsreviewforum.com
These websites are run by a group of psychics. You may have been unfairly accused of being a psychic scammer. These forums are themselves, in fact, scams attempting to defame you and steal business from you.
If you would like the whole world to know that they are scams you do have recourse. You can post, for free, that they are scams on one or more of the following websites: ( I did not get the links, but I am sure they point to the reports mentioned above)
This is worth your time. It will only take a second to do so. And it will ensure that when people search for one of these websites that they hear your point of view. It will ensure that when people search for "spsreviewforum" for example that they do not take the negative reviews about you as seriously.
Google "spsreviewforum" and see what I mean.
Your Friend,
A Fellow Psychic

This email explains the reason behind this defamation campaign, they cannot shut us down, therefore they need to put us down.

To keep the record straight, Hope and the spsreviewforum.com are NOT associated with any spellcaster or psychic, Hope does not endorse any practitioner and does not blackmail or bribes anyone.

I protect the identity of all the members of my forums the same way I protect mine. How and why is my identity so important? I have a job and a family and the last thing I want is for some low life scammer to ruin my personal life with false claims. I do not sell anything, my forum is just a review site and for obvious reasons we all need our privacy protected in order to be able to speak freely.

Not believing on spells or psychics does not give anyone the right to attack us or call us scam, please respect our beliefs the same way we respect yours.

Most members are very happy to find the forum; we help and support each other, we bring awareness on scams and expose scammers, feel free to join the spsreviewforum.com and see for yourself (scammers are not welcome)

Hope it helps

Hope

MRS. ANN IN MURRAY, KENTUCKY TOOK ME FOR 600.00, AND PSYCHIC MARY IN MILTON/BARBOURSVILLE TOOK ME FOR 300.00. THEY BOTH CLAIMED THEY WOULD RE-UNITE ME WITH THE MAN THAT I'D BEEN INVOLVED WITH FOR OVER A YEAR, WE WERE BOTH BROKEN UP BY ANOTHER, BOTH WOMEN SAID TO ME "OUR WORK IS GUARANTEED", ONCE THEY TAKE YOUR MONEY YOU ARE SCREWED. I'M AM SURE THAT THERE ARE GOOD REPUTABLE PSYCHICS OUT THERE, BUT, THEY ARE FAKES, AND I WILL EXPOSE THEM NO MATTER HOW FAR I HAVE TO GO!! I AM DISABLED, AND TO THINK THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD LIKE THE TWO OF THEM. MILTON/BARBOURSVILLE, IS IN WEST VIRGINIA, (U.S.A.) ALSO, THE LADY IN KENTUCKY TRIED TO TALK ME INTO GOING TO A LOAN COMPANY TO BORROW AN ADDITIONAL 1, 500.00. IT IS WRONG TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF GRIEVING/ HURTING INDIVIDUALS, WE ARE HUMAN SOULS TOO, AND TO SCAM PEOPLE LIKE THOSE TWO LADIES DO IS WRONG.
