Miss Cleo RAISES FROM THE DEAD

Ever wonder about the psychics you are calling and how this industry works ?

There are psychic recruiters out there which are called "call centers" or "bookstores". They get people to work for them (no psychic abilities required), then the bookstores contract their services to a parent company like miss cleo/prn was. There are hundreds and hundreds of these bookstores out there. And no ones is taking responsibility: the parent company contracts from the bookstore (their not responsible) the bookstore has a contract with the psychic (so their not responsible) neither is the psychic who makes maybe $12.00 per "talk" hour who has pressure on them for time lengths otherwise they are out a job or their phone barely rings.

Nice and easy way for the bookstores to rake in tons of money and take no responsibility, have no overhead, not work, but yet have employees who are independent contractors so they can run the business as if IT IS an employee and employer business. But they can set the rules tell the "psychics" what they can and cannot to do. (And if they don't do what the recruiters want, the "psychics" will lose their jobs.

Yet, as an independent contractor, the "psychic" MUST work x amount of hours and they MUST have to meet their time length average for the month.

What does time length average mean? It means how long you keep people on the phone line which they set as a requirement. That is just ONE of the ways the recruiters use to get as much money out of the caller as possible!

Now for the kicker: You call one of these centers and your are paying anywhere from $ 2.99 to 4.99 per minute to speak to a psychic...like to know how much of that the psychic receives? 20 to 50 cents per minute! Most of the call centers I see out on the web looking for help is paying $12.00 per hr (talk minute hours)... Sound good HUH? Well, think about this; if a reader is getting $12. an hour and you are paying $4.99 per minute for a hour call the call center just made $287.40 off of the call and the reader got $12.00. Example: For a 4 hour work day the reader will get $ 48.00 for the day the call center made $1,249.60 Now, if they have 10 readers for that 4 hours of work the call center is paying out $480.00 to the readers and the call centered has earned $12,496.00, for NO work on their part. And they have readers around the clock and operate 24/7. The main company made it possible for psychics to work for themisselves, but now the recruiters want to take over, and basically ruin the reputation of the industry again!

The reader as an independent contractor MUST pay out of that $12.00 all their expenses plus taxes and the company has little to no expenses to pay out from their $287.40 they made. Start adding those figure up...the psychic is paid very little and the company is making a ton of money. The Call centers owners have very little to no over head expenses at all. Maybe a Home Office, free websites, free classified ads on the web,or a pennysaver help wanted ad. ( Gas for the car to deposit their huge checks.) They are only paying the reader 4% of what comes in. Most states sales taxes are more than that.

Who do call centers hire...ANYONE... no experience or psychic abilities required... (read script readers, they give you all the tools and information you need.)

I have downloaded a few things from some of these sites
that have PHONE PSYCHICS FOR HIRE...
Read it and be the judge!

NOW, what's even more sickening is they have training manuals on HOW to keep the customers on the phone. Not to mention these readers are totally pressured with call averages or call lengths, that's what your whole job is based on, this is how much you get paid, and whether or not you are fired, and how many calls a psychic will get. If you make calls short and sweet (good for the customer) you wont get many more calls, but the person who drags them out (bad for the customer) is the one they give the calls to! (This is what their priority system is based on) Another BAD BAD thing about call centers is they share customer information! So if you call a psychic from one of these call centers, chances are if you call another, (even one they may "recommend") that "psychic" may already have your information BEFORE you even place your call !!.

These readers HAVE to worry about keeping customers on the phone, and this is their 1st priority since the company has set the whole pay scale around it, and if they only have short call lengths they will be fired! What does this mean to the client? Readers that are ethical, wont be able to make a living, and soon on huge relaying websites, all you will be talking to are "psychics" who answered the ads, got the scripts, and are giving you the raw deal.

Where did these call centers come from you might ask?
Keep reading....

What's pitiful here is: There are no laws in place either on a state or federal level or the IRS. It's all in print on the internet and the proof is out there that these companies have a manual to train people to con the callers out of their money per minute and that the whole job is based and pressured around the readers call averages and call time length keep their jobs... NO ONE is Responsible.

There are NO LAWS PROTECTING THE CONSUMER
FROM THESE HORRIBLE CONS STEALING THEIR MONEY,
and THESE independent contractors AS WELL are being RIPPED OFF

AND you thought
these scam artists were gone when the closed down miss Cleo ?

GUESS AGAIN....

miss CLEO RISES FROM HER GRAVE

Well, these SAME recruiters/bookstores were the ONLY recruiters for the "psychics" that answered the Miss Cleo/PRN lines, (and if you haven't found out about how they scammed people, click here) and now that Miss Cleo/PRN is out of business, the call centers have now focused on a huge relayed advice site and others, to saturate the market with cheap wages for psychics, call length averages to screw the clients, script readers and people who have zero gifts and abilities taking YOUR call giving YOU advice all in the name of GREED.

The CALL CENTERS AND BOOKSTORES that the calls were relayed too are ALL STILL in BUSINESS RIPPING OFF, BOTH AND CUSTOMERS AND THE INDEPENDENTLY CONTRACTED PSYCHICS...
Making TONS of MONEY and taking no responsibility for anything.

What platform are they using TODAY to operate their businesses!
Good Question!

MANY OF CALL CENTERS AND BOOKSTORES ARE ON A HUGE PSYCHIC ADVICE PHONE SITE ON THE INTERNET. TODAY

THIS SAME COMPANY IS SERVICING AND PROVIDING A PLATFORM FOR THESE Fake Psychic COMPANIES TO STAY IN BUSINESS ON THE INTERNET NOW..

AS WELL AS PROMOTING THEM OUT ON THE INTERNET THROUGH THEIR PARTNERSHIP WITH ALL THE "MAJOR WELL KNOWN" COMPANIES ON THE INTERNET TODAY. Just same of these partnering companies are missN, AOL, About and Yahoo. Anywhere you see a banner for free psychic readings.

So the backbone operation of miss Cleo/PRN
is bigger and stronger !

Once they monopolized your TV set
NOW they monopolize your Internet..

SO BUYER BEWARE

ARE YOU CALLING A PSYCHIC WHO ONLY CARES
ABOUT HOW LONG THEY KEEP YOU ON THE PHONE,
So they can keep their job!

or are you

Talking to a professional honest ethical psychic
who's more concerned about doing a professional reading
and not keeping you on the phone as their 1st and only priority.

PROTECT YOURSELF-
STAY AWAY FROM CALL CENTER "PSYCHICS"

Complain to the ftc,
the internet fraud center,
and the companies you call!

LAWS NEED TO BE PASSED NOW !!!

This Time the backbone of miss Cleo/PRN
needs to be cremated not burned!
