Terrible (sometimes rude and impatient) customer service. Fraught with glitches. Wouldnt reccommend. California Psychics i got on with fine.
I have some readingin my lifetime. But I have to say with great accuracy compassion that the psychic reader I chose was fantastic fantastic. Her name was
Miss zandalee. Extention: 227914. Wow. She was outstanding in my opinion.
asknow.com is a really fake psychic warehouse full of amateurs. Don't use them. It is important to find a real psychic reader that will help you. I found one at:
The psychic reader was a real experienced psychic that I spoke to over Skype. He could speak to my guides and had vivid clairvoyance. I was really happy and satisfied with the reading. My friend also got a email reading with them. You should try them instead.
I tried a few different psychics on Ask Now before I found a good fit. Kind of like Goldilocks, one was too religious, one was too hard to understand, one was very uplifting but her predictions didn't come to pass. I read a bunch of reviews of the different psychics and then tried Psychic Jozette. Excellent, couldn't ask for a better connection. I hope that helps someone.
At first when I set up and it was very interesting I spoke with Tonya at extension 882286 the recording came on saying that my minutes were up I then told her that the call should be over she continue to talk with this being my first time I wasn't sure that I needed to hang up the phone and it went over eight minutes so now they're saying that my Bill have an outstanding balance for 7192 I've been called customer serviced and as soon as I spoke with someone the lady on the phone had a very bad attitude and was very rude I've been asked to speak with her manager and she was also very rude and disrespectful and then got an attitude when I told her that the other lady was rude she then said how and I told her she was cutting me off and very careless to the issue that I was having as far as the balance she then said I don't understand what you mean by rude and I said will you do not understand the definition of food is then she got an attitude and I told her then you better customer service and I was not okay with the service I had she going to call back within 48 hours to find out after the call is reviewed if I stopped to pay the 7192. As far as I can tell I'm very hot and angry because every customer service rep that I have spoken with is very rude I then told her you do not have to be a really big $#*! at this moment because it is not acceptable. So from my advice and I wish I would've did more research before calling this company I will never call this company again or recommend that anyone else called this company they suck. It was the worst first experience of my life!!! Although the psychic Tonya was really good she should be more considerate about someone who is a first-time user and do not know the protocols of hanging up after your 40 minutes are over or else you would get charged a $#*! load of money!!! Not cool and I really hope they give my money back
I called yesterday (6-24-14) and spoke with a Zanda (ext. 224917 not sure if her name is spelled correct) any ways the reading was AMAZING.. We talked way longer than I expected (I'm nervous too get my credit card bill now lol) but her experience and knowledge of the situation I needed answered was right on she was dead on with SEVERAL things in my past and future .. I've had several readings but NONE have made me feel like this.. I have referred her too most of my family I'm still smiling and happy about the reading I just can't wait to get some closure on the situation and I'm almost positive it will pan out like she said.. I also like the fact that they don't ask you too buy expensive crystals or candles (I feel she really cares) and is not trying to rip people off any ways please get a read from her I promise you won't be disappointed.. I will for sure be using her in the near future :)
I called ask now on yesterday 06/06/2014 and spoke with zandalee I hope I am spelling the name correctly, I was experiencing a major decision with my fiancée that I was I total turmoil about right away she gave me specific insight on my fiancée and our situation she was 100% correct and she gave the an excellent reading. I want to thank her so much for her help she spoke to me and shared with me information that was right on point. I am totally for this psychic because she did not give my gimmicks, I am not a person who spend foolishly on these sorts of things this is only my second reading my first one was 20 years ago so please believe me I was at a crossroads that would have affected me in a major way. please use her when you speak with her please have an open mind and listen and allow her to guide you in a clear direction don't not go in sobbing and crying, this is an honest review from an individual who desperately needing answers and I will use her again in the future, again thank you zandalee
I was just reading my online horoscope and received a free 3 minute reading. I called the number and enter my code and talked with a sales rep. whom toke my credit card info in case I went over my free 3 minutes. I was informed there were 2 types of psychic's, #1 most experienced and cost the most and also the only types I could use for my 3 free minutes. #2 less expensive but still good psychic's. They give you instructions that your phone number is your account # and you pick out 4 #'s for a pin. They then transfer you over to the original line you called on and I had written down the instruction's, but it doesn't work, The line talks in English, then Spanish, then tells you to press #1, which took me back to customer service, whom reported I pressed a wrong key. They report they are sending me back, but after a minute I get a signal that I have been disconnected. So I call back, and I do everything they told me to do, but this time the recorded voice reports that you can not use you 3 free minutes on a #1 type psychic, only on a #2, the exact opposite of Operator Mark reported when he took my credit card #. So I hang up and try to get customer service again by pressing 1 again, and was told that number was not valid. WHAT A SCAM!!! I was told I would be speaking to VIRGO 99 whom is also clairvoyant, so if she is so good, lets see how long it takes her to see how "the nice word is" MAD, I am. If these people that work for ASKNOW.COM are as good as they say they are, they shouldn't have to work for a company that tries to scam their customers. STAY AWAY, IT'S A SCAM, SCAM, SCAM
Tried it once for the 3 minutes free. The customer service rep was being a little pushy and kept trying to get me to buy a package deal but I kept respectfully declining and just wanted the free 3 minutes. My reading was with Zoe and it went okay. I have to wait till August to see if she was right. What I really don't like about them is that it just doesn't automatically hang up like on Psychic Sourc when your minutes are up. You have to listen for the beep which is kind of an inconvenience when you're trying to listen to the psychic and also listen for the beep so you won't go over. For that reason and their outrages prices, I will not be calling again.
They can be expensive but that depends on how much time you talk and who you pick. Every time it have called, I've enjoyed it. Well worth the money! But every time I called, I would pick Psychic Angel Reader Nicole. I don't think she's there anymore but I really enjoyed every single conversation with her. She's very friendly and very helpful. She may have went to California Psychics like some of them have, I don't know. Anyways, most of the staff is friendly. You gotta keep in mind that there are just some psychics that you don't click with. I've learned to look at their pictures and if I get a good feeling about them and they are REASONABLY priced, I call them.
If you're thinking about trying asknow, read my story and decide for yourself…
I was going through a very tough moment in my life. I was very vulnerable and needed answers. I decided to try asknow as a desperate and spur of the moment thing. The love of my life had decided he no longer wanted to be with me. I loved him very much and he was basically everything I had. I was extremely depressed and at my lowest.
I called asknow and was directed to a psychic, who according to the operator, was very honest and precise. I was crying sobbing as I told her my situation, and all I wanted was to know if I should let it go with my ex, or wait it out... but she avoided my question and told me she was going to help me recover my ex. She asked me to go to a grocery store and buy some things to put in my water and to read certain verses of the bible, and that it was going to cleanse my spirit. She promised this would bring him back in 1 week! She also had asked me to call her back every so often, and even though my minutes had ran out, I called her at $7 per minute (ridiculous, I know!) As vulnerable as I was, I did everything she asked. She was the only hope that I had… but I was desperate for results, so I stopped drinking the special water and reading the verses, and decided to try another psychic…
The second psychic also avoided my question and claimed that she was going to help me get my ex back. She asked me to go to the store and buy candles and write his name on them, and to call her back. But honestly I wasn’t into that whole vuduu thing, or whatever its called… At that point I started to think that them saying “call me back” and avoiding my question is simply a way to get you to keep calling and spend my money! They knew I was vulnerable and would do anything…
Lastly, I was still lacking answers, still sad, still vulnerable, wasted my money, and I don’t know why I did this, but in the month of January, I decided to give asknow a 3rd chance… I spoke to a third psychic, her name was Love Raine, who surprisingly answered my question with clarity! She told me “You will be back together in April. I definitely see it.” At this point, I didn’t know what to believe. I didn’t want to base my hopes solely on something so superstitious… I finally cancelled my membership that month.
I prayed every single day for 6 months, without missing any days. My faith in God was everything I had left… When the month of April came around, I kept thinking about the 3rd psychic and what she had told me. Towards the end of April, things with me and my ex were getting a lot better, but we weren’t together still. It wasn’t until May 2nd ,to be exact, that we finally got back together! And he said to me “I felt like we’ve been back together since April.” Coincidence? I don’t know. I’ll leave that for whoever is reading this to decide…
I believe that it was God who did it. I prayed everyday for 6 months, and I lastly realized that I was being impatient and negative with my situation. We needed this time apart because things were very bad and we needed to figure ourselves out. Everything is wonderful between me and my BF now! The time apart turned out to be good.
Moral of the story? I rated this site 2 stars due to my money stolen and I felt like I was being taken advantage of because of how vulnerable I was. And even though that last psychic’s prediction actually came true, I was praying everyday and it could’ve simply just been a coincidence. Like I said, let the reader decide…
Asknow is a total scam.
Absolutely a scam!!! I've made my first call last week sine they kept emailing me their deal everyday, I finally gave it a try.
In the beginning, they connected me to customer service first, then they kept being so pushy and trying to convince me to buy their deal/package which is only offered to first time first call customers. Even though I did feel uncomfortable and I told her I will think about it and be back later, that lady then changed her attitude right away and tried to negotiate with me in order to keep me on the phone so they could trap me to buy their deal. Then I finally put $30 on my account then she referred me to one of their "best" psychics. However, this psychic lady got very strong accent. I couldn't understand what she wanna tell me, and whatever she said didn't make sense at all. I then called the customer service for the refund. They told me they can't make any refund, but they're giving me 10mins free for my next call. But guess what, when I went back to my account to check if I got that 10 mins in my account, I finally found out that my account didn't exist at all. I gotta make another phone call to the customer service again, then they told me, since the last call I mentioned I wasn't satisfied with their service so they cancelled my account!! WTH... No refund first then now they cancelled my account WITHOUT noticing me first until I asked?!
Be careful, this website should be definitely on the black list. Please don't be fooled by these people!
I was charged, to my shock, $340, for 30 minutes. Neither ASKNow nor my bank would help me resolve this sham. These foks are rip off artist preying upon people in need. Stay away.
The psychic tree psychic was wonderful and pleasant. I enjoyed her reading until I found out that I was being charged 13 dollar a minute without me knowing. I believed that I was being charged 10 dollars for 15 minutes to talk to any psychic. Wrong, wrong, wrong. The customer service was horrible and there was no respect for the consumer. Stay away from this site. They are out for your money. The psychics are cool but the reps are dangerously stealing your money.
The customer service representives are absolutely horrible and rude and the psychics predicted things that were totally wrong which got my hopes up then totally crushed them... Psychic capri may be calming and helpful but totally wrong on her predictions. Ends up making you feel even worse then you did before you talked to her!
I been fooled by this company AskNow.com same emails .Don't waste your time and space for your emails from them.People don't want to be cheated on false information.Their emails is like keep being the sane ones constantly then they try to change so it seems like a new email .People do not give your email to them.I did and I regret wasting my precious time reading emails from them.Now I am more careful and I know better from this lesson.Be smarter who you give your information to.
I just signed up for ask now, and love it, I love psycic molly rose, she was kind caring and to the point, didnt waste my time and picked on people around me. will call her again soon.
Everyone is speaking of the customer service. I personally had good experiences with customer service. They're always very friendly and sometimes they like to talk about their wife and kids. One guy kept me on the phone for 20 minutes talking about his daughter..... Anyways, so far I've spoken to 2 different psychics. First i spoke to mystic Melissa, who told me that in order to get my ex back, I had to drink a tall glass of Ice water and line for 7 days every morning. And she told I had to read specific bible verses on the daily. I did everything she said but after a few days I thought to myself "drinking This lime juice is going to get my ex back? How absurd!" So I gave up! But she was very caring and seemed to really care about my problem.. I still wonder to this day if drinking that juice and reading those verses would've really gotten my ex back?
Lastly, I decided to try a different psychic who told me a specific time frame of when my ex will come back and she told me which Steps to take in the mean time... But I am scared of putting my hopes on something such as psychic predictions. But I sure hope it comes true!
This service is a rip off. Please stay away from this company. A company that preys on people who are vulnerable and take their money should be ashamed of themself. I paid for $10 for 15 minutes and I was charged $89.90 plus $10. The whole time the psychic stated that she could not hear me or she did not understand the situation. She gave conflicted answers. I reported her and wanted back my money i was told that it is a valid charge. I would never used this company and i reporting to them to BBB. I was told by the supervisor that she has legal rights and it is for entertainment purposes and nothing more. It is in the contract that I agreed to. Oh really now. We see about that, scammers.
I have been using Asknow for a little over a year. The website is easy to navigate, customer service has been good to me (including refunding an entire reading that was filled with tech errors on their end...approx 150 dollars). The psychics themselves seem to be legitimate. My favorite is Michael Sky. I do believe he is the real deal and before you even type a sentence he is able to pick up on details and give you very honest answers and advice. I am finally taking his advice, and i literally like a shift took place.
Ive never had a problem with customer service. The only major issue I have with Asknow is tthe fact the management aka the big shots are so controlling and this Toprated, elite, and Master level nonsense. So you can get a minutes package for an affordable price for Top rated, but in order to speak with a Master you have to pay their per minute rate? Why can't everybody just be regular psychics and the minuyes packages be available for all of them, and then let the customer choose of they want to continue at $13/min?! The way it used to be! Now my fav Michael sky is a Master, so I can't speak with him like I used to, its not affordable anymore. There are many competing companies out there, so I suggest Asknow really reevaluate their pricing and get rid of the Master, elite, and top rated thing
I've tried all of the sites and this is the best and most accurate. My favorite psychics are definitely Prophetess Phyllis, Psychic Capri and Harrison. I belong to their club membership, So I get minutes added to my account every month and I can honestly say I don't know what I would do without them.
They up sell the reading and won't let me have 5 minutes free reading without my credit card information. I will call my bank tomorrow to cancel any unauthorized transactions. Horrible customer service. I was threatened by him and he yelled at me for no reasons. Terrible.
I was going through a difficult time and needed some psychic guidance. Thank God I found Psychic Clarissa on that site. She was amazing. She knew my situation without asking leading questions. Her predictions came true although her timeline was a little off. She only does online chat, which I prefer, but for those who like to talk on the phone I tried Psychic London and found her predictions to be accuratre, as well.
A incredibly terrible site. They placed unauthorized charges on my card as well as did not live up to their claim of trying to satisfy customer if the customer isn't satisfied with reading. They will periodically charge your card for no reason as well as supply truly horrible customer service. I was appalled. The psychics do everything within their power to keep you on the phone, claiming they're "tuning into" your partner, etc. All stalling tactics. This site gives all psychics a bad name. They will make you feel like the spiritual realm is nonsense. I am reporting to the better business. No one should be treated like this.
The customer service is very poor. All negative feedbacks are deleted and I posted some and my account was cancelled. Not only that they deducted unauthorised payment from my credit card 6 days after cancelling my account to which I had already reported my bank and I had to cancel my credit card. They are ripoffs and are cheaters and scamsters, no honest feedback is to be left on their website if you do, you are kicked out and duped of your money.
I have used many psychic lines in my time and this is by far the most expensive and the worst. I took advantage of the introductory offer of 15 mins for $10 but when I spoke with my chosen reader she sat quiet for almost 15 mins claiming she was trying to tune in with my partner. What a load of bull! SAVE YOUR MONEY AND DO NOT USE THIS SITE!
My experience with this web site was done on a whim. I was looking for tarot card readings just for entertainment. I am writing this review because I want to put my story out there. Not going thru any especially rough time. I decided to do the 5 minute free reading. I know the phone psychics make their $$$ by the amount of time that you are on the line. I called and immediately they try get all your info ...INCLUDING your credit card #. Then they tell you about all the special rates and $$ amount of different time readings. I settled on the $20.00 reading for 20 minutes.. A one time thing. They tell you when your time is up. So not to incur any charges on your credit card to just hang up on the psychic at that point in the reading.
I spoke with the Psychic Richard. A very kind
and compassionate person and I really enjoyed the reading. It was especially full of details to the answer to my question. About a week goes by and Im gearing up for this wonderful person I'm going to meet. Skeptical of course. A friend suggested that I see if there are any reviews about him. I went to his page and there were many wonderful mostly 5 star reviews. I'm quite impressed until I come to one review back in January of 2013. The girl spoke of her wonderful reading and of this person she
was to meet ... And a possible business opportunity in a specific field. Much
To my surprise her reading was almost word for word the exact description of my "Mister Wonderful". Also the business opportunity was also in the exact same field and s person with the exact same name was going to contact me. We had for this part of the reading anyway, the exact same prediction. I felt as though for a specific question you ask there is a stock answer given . I was extremely disappointed and felt that this was really deceiving. I called Customer Service and they were very prompt with their guarantee if not satisfied they would give you a ten minute reading with a different psychic. I was connected to a woman who meandered all over the place and said absolutely nothing that was the same as the other psychic. At the tone when they would start charging my credit cared I promptly and curtly thanked her and hung up.
My feeling is that Im sure there are genuine people out there that may be psychic, however do not believe that anyone can read another over the phone. Anyone sho is a good listener can pick up enough info and give "advice" and charge a FORTUNE doing it. I'm sure this charade of a readings cost me about $ 100. because he dismissed the fact I said that I can't afford more time and kept right on talking of all this important stuff I need to be award of. At $8.00 am hour that is an hourly rate of $480. A good friend can listen and advise for free. If you have the extra money and don't mind wasting it, then this might be fun....OR deadly. No one knows the future and anyone can tell you what you want to hear. Or make things up... They always have a reason after the fact why the prediction didnt happen. My advice....if you are lonely and sad and depressed find a good therapist, a good friend and if you don't have either call a hotline for people who are suicidal.. if things are that bad. You just need someone to talk to.. Don't waste your money on any psychics. Speak to a minister and seek guidance. A person who genuinely cares about you will not bankrupt you during a low time on your life. Psychic are not the answer. Pray... Read the Bible and save your money. The website lived up to its promise and did provide a 10 minute reading which was totally lame. I still am $100. poorer and still have no answers. Find the answers to your life situations somewhere else. Don't spend all your money and hopes on things that probably won't happen. You will be even more sad, angry, depressed and disappointed when you realized you wasted your money. These are my thoughts.....
I tried the introductory rate of 10 minutes for $10. The psychic herself was pleasant and helpful, and for entertainment purposes, it is fine. What is not acceptable is that at the end of that introductory session, the site automatically puts you into a regular session at the psychic's standard rate. There is no warning, and it does not ask your permission. I immediately clicked out of the session, but they still charged me $8.99. I have emailed twice, to no avail. In the last email I expressed they had 48 hours to refund my money, or I would go to my bank and begin the chargeback process, which costs them more money. I still haven't heard from them, but any company who ignores its customers over a financial dispute is not a trustworthy company. I will not be using this site's services again, and I think it's an underhanded tactic to allow a session to rollover into a by-the-minute session without the express permission of the client. There was no countdown clock, no warning that such a thing would happen, it just popped up as part of the chat that it was now in the by-the-minute session. Ridiculous, and poor customer service.
I dont know how there is not a law against these so called pyschic hotlines asknow, pyschic source, california,hollywood they all took lots of my money and empty promises when I was at my lowest they should all burnnn...
ASKNOW.COM Reviews: ASKNOW.COM SCAMS & other Psychic SCAMS – pay-per-minute RAPE of the lonely, poor & desperate.
I worked there for close to two years. The inbreds that run it are VICIOUS, CRUEL, MERCILESS and prey on the social security recipients, the welfare recipients, poor black folk, those of very limited education, the elderly and the mentally ill. They teach their psychics how to dazzle you with extraordinary BULL$#*! in order to keep you on that phone.
They have countless tricks they implement that delight the customer and bedazzle you. It is a MONUMENTAL rip off and countless complaints filed against them at the better business bureau.
You have NO IDEA - none, how crooked they are. They have a HUGE turn-over rate and they're horrible to work for. Those poor psychics make 20 cents a minute - 20 cents while the network gets $7 - $13.00 per minute.
Most of the patrons of the pay-per-minute psychic network scams, are usually people in crisis and more often than not, serious financial crisis. These are people at their wits end, terrified and heartbroken, in the depth of despair, riddled with panic, dread, worry and fear. In addition to that, most of these people are of limited education, some if not many, suffering with various psychological disorders, physical disabilities, cognitive impairment and most if not all, are at the end of their rope, facing various battles.
They’re enticed by the “5 Free Minutes” that usually heads the pay-per-minute websites. They give their credit-card information, get connected to a psychic and if they don’t hear the automated message during the call, alerting them that their 5 free minutes is up, they don’t realize it but their problems have just become a literal catastrophe and the independent psychic contractors ARE NOT allowed to let the client know that they’ve “crossed over” into what may very well become one of the darkest valleys of their life – they’ve been lured in by an evil, speaking sugar-coated-candy lies and once they see their next credit card statement, they will face a far greater heartache than what they ever imagined.
Learn of the horrific scams perpetrated by the pay-per-minute psychic networks, how they’re dedicated to raping your credit card and leaving you homeless.
Unlike the outrageous, ridiculous, scams of the merciless, thieving, pay-per-minute psychic networks, that enforce cruel, unscrupulous, unethical practices as a means of captivating your attention in order to keep you on the phone at $7.00 – $13.00 per minute, we at Tarotti are vehemently against the practice of providing lies, fairytales and make-believe stories, just to keep your business.
What you may not know about the pay-per-minute psychic networks is this: Those psychics are independent contractors not direct employees of the psychic network where they work. They HAVE to keep a STRONG quota of minutes in order to retain their contract with the company.
All of the psychics have a dedicated “manager.” That manager is an iron fisted slave driver that monitors all of your calls in order to ensure 2 things:
A.) The psychic is not giving out his or her personal information in order to steal their clients.
B.) They’re following protocol by keeping the client on the phone as long as possible, without mercy.
They do not look for ethical psychics! They look for blood-suckers that feel nothing for the client. They want someone that is a master story teller; a manipulative, shrewd, calculating, conniving motivational speaker that will tell you anything you want to hear. That’s what keeps you on the phone — hearing that your ex love is returning, your finances will take a dramatic improvement because a huge windfall of cash is about to fall out of the sky and everything you ever dreamed of is going to happen — next year.
Don’t be fooled by the top dollar pay-per-minute, believing that they cost more because they’re better psychics. NOT TRUE. They are not better psychics, they’re better liars and secondly, the top dollar pay-per-minute acquires that higher position because of the hours they are willing to put in and the number of minutes they are able to accrue by telling you better stories.
Essentially they are professional con artists, highly trained at manipulating your feelings by tuning in to what it is that you want most and creating a magical and marvelous story around just that.
For example, let’s say I worked for their company and you chose ME, a $6.99 per minute psychic and you wanted to know if the MARRIED MAN you were in love with, that had decided to end the relationship with you and stay with his wife, opting to work things out with her, was ever coming back. I do the reading and see that he will never come back and relay this to you in no uncertain terms. You will probably not be happy with that reading, hang up on me and phone the $13.00 per minute psychic. That psychic will paint a gorgeous fairytale for you, filled with extraordinary hopes and promises and as you hear what you want to hear and feel renewed and encouraged, you will ask more questions and hear more fairytales, lies and embellishments.
The next thing you know, you’ve been hypnotized into spending close to $1000 dollars to have a professional liar, rob you of your last red cent.
I was Psychic Savantace. I quit when they escalated their prices to $10 and $13 per minute. All the psychics suffered with that increase and in conjunction with that, the management became so vicious and DEMANDING and overbearing that scores of psychics quit.
I then designed my own psychic website. This is no spam and this is my site - feel free to contact me anytime.
I had a few rough experiences before I found Twilight4Ever and Intuitive Amy. These 2 are my favorite and are spot on almost every time! Twilight's been wrong a few times, but they don't guarantee they are 100% accurate every time. Remember folks, when you call, and on the website, there is a disclaimer there that says "For entertainment purposes only" so keep that in mind when calling!
My favorite psychics at AskNow is Venus Rising and Man of Light. They are both spot-on and have saved me a ton of grief! I tried many psychic networks before finding AskNow and I'm glad I did. I had an ok reading with Hey Renee but she works with California Psychics now.
I was ripped off many times by a psychic hey renee. I am going thru the roughest time in my life. I lost many things including a man i loved very much. I believed he loved me and left me at my lowest point. I met renee and she pretended to care and took LOTS AND LOTS of my money,but suicidal i was and needed someone to talk to. She insisted and promised that this man loves me and would be back and it was just a lie. It would have been better to have let go instead of holding on to a love that didnt exist. It is very cruel to hurt people esp ones that are already hurting. I am a good person and people like me and you that are good are just the ones they feed on. So please if you are hurting like me use your money to talk to a professional or a friend or a free hot line,,, and remember if someone loved you they would not leave you or kick you when you are down.
