Psychic Marie

SAPS Asks Marie a few questions... how will she respond?

Psychic Marie (located at: was one of the cheapest mediums we've come across, at only $15 for three questions. Below is our contact, divided into what we gave (the information sheet) and what we got (the reading).

Psychic Marie Information Sheet

The italicized portion is an exact copy of the information required for submission when requesting a reading from Marie.

Your Full Name::
Alison Smith

alternate email:
(e-mail deleted for security reasons)

Your city/state/country::
Fort Worth, TX, USA

What is your birth date?:

Where did you see my website?:

Why did you choose my website?:
Because you allow specific questions.

Are you at least 18 years old?:

What are your concerns?:
I do not have any particular current concerns, I am more interested in the three questions.

Please ask three questions here:
Is Robert alive or dead?
If he has died, how long ago was it?
If he is alive, where is he?

Because of the specific note on Psychic Marie's site that says she does not find "lost people" (which, think about it, has no meaning), we phrased the first two questions hoping she would be willing to answer those, and let the third stand hoping she would get on a roll and answer anyway.

Psychic Marie Responds

These are the responses to our request for answers to the three questions. Marie's text will be italicized, and ours will be in blue.

Answer: As I state on all my websites, I do not find lost people. I can't state if someone is alive or dead. Please ask three more questions by email.
Many Blessings,

This completes your reading. I pray this reading has helped you. Please use The Secrets Of Manifestation (free at ) to help manifest all your desires. Also, please read "The Master Key System" by Charles F. Haanel and "Ten Thousand Whispers" by Lynda Madden Dahl. These books are probably at your local library and will revolutionize your life. Thank you for your order...

Marie and her Spirit Guides at

IMPORTANT! The Universe hears and answers all prayers. Please pray to a Higher Power daily for divine help and guidance, then trust that all will be well. You have a "magic magnifying mind". Whatever you focus on (anger, resentment, fear, lack/happiness, acceptance, abundance) will grow larger and larger in your life. What do you choose to focus on today?

? It doesn't say that you can't say whether someone is alive or dead. It says the following:

Please note: I do not address health or medical questions (including pregnancy), I do not contact the dead directly (only through my spirit guides), I do not predict lottery numbers and I do not find lost people or items. I do not do general readings, I provide specific psychic answers to specific questions about people or events. Please remember this when ordering online readings.

It doesn't say that he's lost. Just that I personally don't know where he is.

I guess I would like my money back then, please.

Thanks anyway,

Okay, then please go to PayPal with your receipt number and ask for a refund. I do not process refunds myself.

This response is very interesting, to say the least. First of all because the definition of "medium" is as follows:

In spirituality, a medium or spirit medium (plural mediums) is a person who is said to possess the ability to communicate with spirits of deceased people (and sometimes pets). Some mediums claim to be able to channel the spirit, by allowing the deceased to speak or write messages using the medium's body.

If she isn't communicating with the dead, why does she call herself a medium? If she can communicate with the dead, why can't she say whether a particular person is alive or not? Surely that would be the easiest part of being a medium.

SAPS has opened a PayPal dispute with Psychic Marie.
