Pilot Fish: A Tale of Psychic Medium Joanne Brown


By Michael O'Brien
Special Contributor: Aanica


Pilot Fish

(A small slender marine fish that often swims in company with larger fish, especially sharks)


For some time now, my colleagues and I have worked to expose these so called, "Celebrity Psychics”, for what we believe them to be; unrepentant predators that prey upon the emotionally and financially bankrupt.
Now before you hard-core believers pounce, I am not suggesting psychic abilities are out of the realm of possibility. I am simply stating there are opportunists with financial agendas that know no ethical or humane boundaries. Those are who we target and why we attempt to expose them.

Evidence of their corruption to me would be found in the answers to these questions.  If some do possess genuine psychic gifts, wouldn't it be an affront to their God to exploit those for cash?  Call me naive but I have incessantly pondered that question.  Also, if they must charge why not ask for a donation at the readings completion? A, "You get what you pay for," type of agreement? All right, I suppose that last question was somewhat rhetorical.

At any rate, in my efforts to pursue these dominate predatory sharks I failed to consider the impact of the minor, self-professed, "Psychic”, bottom feeders that swim alongside them.  You know those slimy pilot fish that are insignificant in comparison to the likes of Coffey or Caputo but depraved parasites nonetheless.

Now I admit discounting these infinitesimal trash fish was a mistake on my part. Although perhaps pardonable since they do take cover quite nicely within the shadows of larger prey. In any event, they are hidden no more.  There should be absolutely no distinction between these calculating charlatans. Both leave countless emotional casualties within their wake inasmuch, financial ruin for many of those victims.

With that said, allow me to relay a recent encounter I had with a supposed psychic.  In November 2012, my friend approached me with a desperate favor. It seems her 87-year-old father was murdered.  He was found hanged in his barn by an unknown assailant(s).  What's more, the Coroner reported it took him a minimum of ten minutes to expire and documented it.  This was apparently due to the lack of fractures or breaks within his vertebrae. With this tragic news, she asked if I was aware of any worthy psychics, she could seek for answers.

Reluctantly I informed her I only knew of those on Facebook who claimed psychic abilities. Hoping to detour her I also advised her they offer their services at a substantial cost with no promise of results. Despite my efforts, she remained motivated. She asked if I would read off a few names and I hesitantly complied. She stated she would then choose what name, "spoke to her.” It is this level of thinking I refer to as, "The first drop of blood in the water.” You may as well start humming the score from Jaws.

Anyway, after I rattled off ten or so names she finally agreed on one.

Psychic Medium, Joanne Browne ghostgabbers2004@yahoo.co.uk Website http://mediumjoannebrown.webs.com/ A psychic who just happened to be available for readings at that time. Believe me, this coincidence did not go unnoticed by my friend and only cemented her decision. She went on to say that, she also chose Ms. Brown in part since she once worked with a Joanne in the early nineties. With that assertion, my protective nature kicked in to high gear and I could not allow this to go any further.

I asked my friend if she would offer me a some time to check this Joanne Brown out before she went any further.

I felt she was just too desperate and vulnerable to make decisions at that time. How I would go about investigating this woman, I was not certain but I knew I had to act quickly. That I did. I contacted Ms. Brown online and stated that [I] wanted a reading instead of my friend.

From the jump, this was an awkward experience for me to say the least. In fact, one of her first comments to me was how she was suspicious or confused about my intentions. It seems she was surprised that I was serious about actually wanting a reading. It is not that I did not believe in her claims of psychic abilities. In fact, I was totally prepared to offer her a fair shot. Though one must admit after reading this that it is comical her initial inclinations were the only correct psychic premonitions she offered me.

Anyway, instead of detailing my experience with her first hand, I have attached the email I was compelled to send Joanne Brown.  The email has been condensed for time and space purposes but I think you will get the point.  I hope that you will be just as appalled as I was.

Ms. Brown,
You may recall our recent online encounter.  We spoke Friday, November 16 at 4:24 p.m., New Mexico time.  During which time you gave me a psychic reading after informing me your fee was $20.00 (USD) for 45 minutes.  Do you recall our encounter?  If not, allow me to refresh your memory.

A bit of advice?  It would certainly behoove you to read the entirety of this correspondence.

First, at precisely 4:30 p.m. you began your psychic reading. Near this same time, 4:34 p.m., you began chatting with your Facebook friends corresponding with them several times.  Not very professional but then again there are larger issues here that I need to address.

Now, I'm certain you can agree that never at any point during this read did you offer me one piece of accurate, precise or valuable information.  Evidence of that last statement would be found in your panicked proclamations to your Facebook friends demanding help.

Next, I am not certain which part of your reading I was more confused by.  You finally asked, "Do you sing?”  You asked that question out of sheer desperation I am certain.  After all, who doesn't or didn't sing once in their lives?  On the other hand, the fact that you informed me that a man in an asylum was following me.  Seriously, Ms. Brown, what if I were mentally fragile? How do you suppose that statement would have affected me?

Second, while you did claim phone issues, you were absent without leave for 43 minutes during our entire 45-minute conversation.  In addition, these periods do not reflect the incessant pauses on your side of the conversation.  See times below.

4:34 - 4:41 (7 minutes AWOL)
5:00 - 5:09 (9 minutes AWOL)
5:09 - 5:36 (27 minutes AWOL)

Okay, so I have been allowed to vent.  Thanks for your patience.  Now allow me to get to my point. As you know, my name is Michael O'Brien.  What you might not know is that I am a Paranormal Correspondent for several sites throughout the Web. Many of which you may be familiar with.

In fact, over the past year we have been working on an article whereby exposing fraud within the psychic community. Inasmuch, the disastrous effects their behavior can have on the fragile human psyche as well as their checking accounts. Now, while you are in no way considered a heavy psychic hitter, we are seriously considering you. Here is why.

While yes, you failed miserably throughout the entirely of your reading. While yes, I adamantly believe your telling another that someone dead in an asylum was somehow interested in them was beyond reprehensible. While yes, you were intermittently involved with this reading time wise. I can honestly say the part that offended me the most is that you took someone else's money, offered absolutely nothing of merit in return and NEVER so much as offered an apology, let alone any other concession.  A new reading, a refund?  Nothing. Your silence to was akin to, "Thanks for your cash, now get lost."

Ms. Brown, all you had to do was apologize to redeem yourself or maybe even offer a small concession but you could not offer something as basic as that.  I am not certain I understand, can you not feel shame or regret?  In any event, enjoy our $37.00 euros.  Personally, you cost me nothing other than my time.

Michael O'Brien

Ms. Joanne Brown's response to my email eight days later was, "I'll refund you asap.”  Nothing more though I did thank her.  However, what happened next surprised even me.

Instead of refunding my meager twenty dollars, Ms. Joanne Brown chose to block me from her page and pulled her "Psychic Medium," proclamation from her name.  She is now, "Joanne Brown, Ghost Hunter”, the last I checked.

While I do despise repeating myself, to me Joanne Brown is the antithesis of these, "bottom feeders”, I referred to. Remorseless sponges who prey upon both the hopeful and the hopeless equally. Truthfully, I am uncertain which is more pathetic.

Too harsh of an assessment you say? No, the fact that this woman hid like a craven when confronted with her ineptitude and deception speaks absolute volumes. She reacted just as a cowardice predator would.  Trust me when I say I am quite familiar with them having studied these people for years. However, I will admit I am perplexed as to why she sold herself out for the cost of a couple of Long John Silver Value Meals.

As for my friend? She is absolutely dismayed and exists without any hope for answers. She knows her dad is dead and she is forced to move on. She is aware her father suffered terribly but she will need to simply deal with that knowledge. She also realizes she cannot trust her instincts any quicker than she can trust a psychic. However, on an up note, it cost her nothing financially to learn that lesson. Somehow, I do not think that fact brings her any solace whatsoever.

In closing, I understand Ms. Brown has some staunch supporters out there. Interestingly enough most of them believe they too are powerful psychics. To those I say I would greatly enjoy it if you responded to this post and rallied in defense of your psychic friend. After all if history is any predictor, Ms. Brown will duck and cover as opposed to tackling any of these accounts on her own behalf. With that, she will need all the help she can assemble. Apparently, spines are not as easy to come by as PayPal accounts are in this day in age.

Now, if you are at a loss for ideas perhaps you can explain to our readers the concept of, "Even gifted psychics can have an off day.” Alternatively, maybe you could riddle us this. Why Ms. Brown contracted a 45-minute reading yet provided only minutes of that? Better yet, feel free to justify why your psychic friend felt so entitled to another's hard earned cash she wasn't willing to offer an apology let alone a refund. I would also like to hear your thoughts on ethical responsibility.

But look at her pic! That's exactly what a psychic is supposed to look like! How could she not be for real?!? Preposterous. Sorry 'bout your friend... maybe she'd have better luck by contacting the cast of CSI.

Michael OBrien said...

For times sake, there were many points we could not address in this article but I would like to add one here.

For centuries one of the most consequential weapons these so called psychics employ is warning their victims there is somehow a curse upon them. Better yet, they will convey there is a negative spirit or demon haunting them.

With those seeds planted, the psychic will then promise to expel the entity or curse forever, "for a price," This is exactly the scam I believe Joanne Brown was attempting to preform when she advised me a man in an asylum was connected to me.

It's regrettable this ruse is so effective, especially with those who suffer from mental health issues. Hopefully, at the very least, a future victim of hers will read this exposé and see Joanne Brown for the unrepentant swindler she is.

Michael O'Brien

Michael OBrien said...

I'd also like to add: Where in the hell are all of Joanne Browns staunch psychic supporters and friends? They're aware of this report, trust me, but it appears they've all chosen [not] to rally behind her. Perhaps that's for the better. Hopefully, Ms. Brown feels just as dejected and lost as her victims.

That's it? That's all you can come up with as a defense? Grammar? Grammarly? Pathetic. Slither back when you can offer any valid arguments that justify any of Joanne Browns actions. (if this isn't actually that snake joanne brown herself) Again, pathetic.

Aanica said...

LMAO WTF?

Michael, Kirby, We have been weighed and measured and found to be grammatically inferior? What say ye? How dare you!(and me) LOL!

Now at least WE are not guilty of blatant theft and possibly other infractions of federal and international law concerning PAYMENT for psychic readings.

I have been looking very closely and I promise to make sure IF these laws have been violated to be certain and give the name(s) of such perpetrators to the proper authority's...

Now anonymous coward why dont you run my reply through your f**k'n grammar checker and you see if I am "all original" and BTW.. you can bet, I damn well mean what I say...

PS: joanne brown also made the front page of SciFake.com

YOU'RE WELCOME :D

Yes, without further debate on whether this Joanne person is a fraud, (which has definitely been established and as of yet there are no arguments to the contrary.) There does still remain the legal ramifications of broken contract; false advertising; and business ethics. Ms. Brown would be doing very well to contact her legal council immediately, if not before then. (You heard that you pissed off Aanica, right??)

At Beth: You do realize you didn't capitalize the, "b," in your name don't you? Now, regardless if you made perfect sense and are obviously an educated woman, I'm afraid we'll be forced to dismiss your comment. I wonder, does Grammarly pick up on sarcasm?

Michael OBrien said...

Plagiarism? I just saw that. Do you mean to tell me Joanne Brown screwed someone else over just as bad as she did us and they TOO wrote the same type of exposé on that thieving vermin? Word for word? Well, I'll be damned. I guess I missed that. As for Grammerly, I'd imagine living in your parents basement with no monthly expenses other than ProActive and hand lotion does afford one the ability to afford the Grammarly $150.00 yearly fee. Now seriously Joanne Brown, either explain yourself and apologize or refund our f#©%¡Ng money as per your 100% guarantee! If not, I PROMISE you we will not give up. Trust me sweet cheeks, you really don't wasn't that and this nightmare isn't over.

Michael OBrien said...

Note to self, I really shouldn't type when I'm pissed off. Swype just can't keep up.

Count Malachi said...

Since spelling and grammatical rules can differ dramatically from the U.S. to the U.K., one may surmise that the error correcting summary posted is not applicable (and perhaps even plagiarism depending on the program utilized).

What "Anonymous" lacks in originality is evidently overshadowed by stupidity and deference to deceptive psychic hucksterism.

"Bye Sarah" ... <--Priceless,LOL

Father Ashraft most likely won’t be coming to her rescue. His sincere message obviously escapes Sarah and her continued demand for others to "keep looking for the proof 101" and reevaluating the case until it suits her have grown very tired to the public and the obvious blunders of her litigious past are gaining notoriety now instead of her alleged haunting.

I couldn't be more delighted. :)

Sarah made the egregious error of taking an apology from Ron Tebo of SciFake as a sign of weakness and proceeded to belittle him and the abuse he suffered as small child and even going as far as to insinuate he was using that as an excuse to get close to children himself. Yes Sarah, I found what you wrote.

That was a serious mistake on your part Sarah, The internet is forever and what I am saying is the truth and can be shown.

I won’t forget what you have tried to do to one of my best friends and a good man, you tried to sully his reputation in the most degenerate of ways you could think of, You make me sick.

Somehow I doubt she has the means to pursue a measly copyright case that crosses intentional borders and laws LOL

Aanica said...

IF you had any kind of clout (you dont) or anything else going for you except dropping text into a online free grammar checker that you obviously DON'T know how to use. You might warrant more attention..

So let me get this right, you are "LMAO" at the astonishing accomplishment of "copy and paste"?
and you even suck at that! lol You're too pitiful to warrant a reply but if you need a little pat on head well, then there you have it. you can copy/paste.. Moron

So now back to more important things, like exposing Joanne Brown who took money for a reading in which I believe is against the law in the UK and promised a refund to Michael, she did NOT get her refund (probably a very well established MO)
Joanne Brown then blocks her victim from contacting her about this obligation.
(That will be her undoing and teach her a very valuable lesson; dont rip people off and especially people with friends like Michael has...

(I dont expect you to know anything about "having friends")so use your imagination... :D

Michael OBrien said...

You're brilliant Count. ;0)

Michael OBrien said...

You know, I'm still not hearing any rationalizations on behalf of Joanne Brown and her deplorable behavior. I can only conclude you have no justifications since you're choosing instead to waste our time with absolute idiocy and nonsense. Grammar isn't an issue and her photo isn't an issue. What is an issue is the theft and deception of Joanne Brown. So do try and stay on point will you?

Rhonda Short President SPPI said...

Now it is my turn! You have slandered Ms Brown in many ways. As I see it she has grounds to sue you. First you do not respect her ability because you set her up to 'prove' your point. Your motives in having a reading were not on the up and up. Therefore you will not get an accurate reading to begin with. For the record, Ms Brown does have computer problems occasionally.

I am a respected person on and off the paranormal field. I have used Ms. Brown's abilities professionally and personally.
I received 100% accurate readings and directions from her. She has even gone as far as finding a diamond ring that was lost, describing a 40 year old crime scene and the victim - by the (dead) victim's own description. It was confirmed by witnesses. She has warned me of things that were going to happen immediately, such as an entity telling me to change the fuse. All of my breakers in my house blew within moments of her telling me that. There are many more instances that I can elaborate on.

So accurate was her ability that it was confirmed with amazing results from different avenues. AND the most amazing part is that she did it from a different continent, never having met me or my group.

Ms. Brown has performed this without asking for a penny. No money ever was passed to her nor did she request it.

I do agree there are many frauds out there but YOU picked the wrong medium to bully. You have performed defamation of character and slander, not to mention CYBER BULLYING! She has many clients and professional connections that will stand up for her.
You, however, have shown that your set up and smash shows your own stupidity and if she does take you to court I hope they thrown the book at you! You did not print the whole story obviously on the pretense it was uninteresting. That is how you hide that you are a fraud.

Ms. Brown is a gifted, caring, young woman. She is human and will make mistakes like any other person. BUT that does not give you the right to slander and bully her!

NOW I AM GOING TO QUOTE YOU: NO PERSONAL ATTACKS. YOU COMMITTED A PERSONAL ATTACK ON MS. BROWN.
IF THIS IS NOT POSTED AS A BLOG COMMENT IT WILL BE POSTED ALL OVER THE PARANORMAL COMMUNITY AND YOU WILL BE SHOWN FOR THE FRAUD YOU ARE.
A PUBLIC RETRACTION AND APOLOGY IS EXPECTED FROM YOU, Michael O'Brien AND THE 'EYE ON THE PARANORMAL' BLOG OWNER TO MS. BROWN FOR THE PAIN AND SUFFERING YOU HAVE CAUSED HER!


Aanica said...

Rhonda, first you cannot just make up laws in your little head. Not everything is about you; no one is being bullied and your fake psychic hero ripped someone off, period. You can make an excuses all day long but that does not change the facts. And psychic superpowers don’t exist!
Looks like she picked the wrong person to steal from!
Sue? lol.. For what? telling the truth? Besides anyone who steals 20 bucks is unlikely have the money to hire even the cheapest lawyer at starting retainers of $25,000 and that's for US residents. I would bet hiring international is a much higher fee. What about the travel and lodging, time? Plane tickets are very expensive to jump the pond.

No Joanne Brown is not going to sue anyone...
A respectable individual would have refunded the money. After all, she told Michael she would in a message and then blocked her, let us not forget that!

As TBess said: "omg!!!! how pathetic! how sad!all of that for $20? she dug her own stupid grave for $20? what a joke!

Yeah, she’s pathetic … lol

Aanica said...

@creepy stalker who admires me from a distance... You have pictures of me too? LMAO! king was right you must have lost some battle somewhere to me and never got over it, while I moved along forgot you (still dont care, LOL) and kept getting more popular and in demand, because I have clout! I know you never have, so I will tell you it does feel great.. :D

I guess should've been flattered Im always on your mind and I guess I am a little :D heh heh see your just like I said, jealous, keeping my pictures prove that or your in love with me which would explain your childish behaviors. Although, I admit it's still just a little creepy!

So you look at me all the time huh? (get in line)lol Hey such is my life :D ..did you know I've always been very popular, yes..its true and I've never asked for a job in my life people always come to me..

King Krimson said...

Sorry if this was already covered but aren't there laws in the UK against claiming psychic powers?

Michael OBrien said...

@Rhonda Short

First, you say I set her up to, "prove my point?" If you bothered to read the entire article you would have seen where I specifically stated, "It is not that I did not believe in her claims of psychic abilities. In fact, I was totally prepared to offer her a fair shot."

Second, my motives, "weren't on the up and up?" Ms. Short, my motives were nothing but positive and philanthropic. I was prepared to take a financial hit so a friend wouldn't have to. I was also saving a friend from a HUGE emotional hit if this, "Psychic Medium, Joanne Brown," was indeed a hack. Which is exactly what she ended up proving she was.

Third, you countered "she does have computer problems occasionally." Well Ronda, isn't that even more reason to fully refund me? A 45 minute reading was reduced to 3 minutes due to computer problems [as JB admitted] and she STILL felt entitled to keep my money? Also, if she were having computer issues, do tell me how she CONTINUED to gab on with her psychic Facebook friends but not me? All of these communications were on Facebook so why was it working for everybody but me?

Now, you've taken the time to write a freaking term paper on JB's psychic superiority but I see you glossed over every important question. Here's one, why did the promise of a 100% guarantee mean NOTHING to your little psychic buddy Rhonda? Better still, why did she promise a full refund then block me? Why did she duck and cover when confronted? Why, when she KNEW I was going to write an exposé on her regarding her ineptitude and thievery, did she STILL attempt to screw me over? Also, why is she feeling shocked and victimized that she was publicly exposed as a fraud? For Gods sake, she didn't have to be psychic to see this article coming. I freaking told her in my email but she STILL refused a refund! Lastly, why hasn't SHE come forward to defend herself and sort this out?

Obviously you are having some communication with her Rhonda so do pass on this message. "This will not end until Joanne Brown refunds my money 100% and admits to each of my accounts in this exposé as 100% truth as well."

As for your riveting testimony of Joanne Browns supreme psychic excellence? Ya, ya, we've heard from groupies like you before. "Joanne's great, Joanne's good, Let us thank her for this food. Amen." Yada, yada, yada. You spend all that time preaching her magnificence yet you managed to answer nothing pertinent. Why it's that Rhonda?

As for your final comments:

Having been on several Ghost Hunts with Joanne Brown and tested her Psychic powers I can indeed confirm she is a Fraudster.

I parted company with this Fraudster middle of last year. During her Ghost hunts and so called readings unknown to her I planted false information. What a surprise, she latched onto this information and tried to turn it into reality. My dog has better Pyschic power then her.
I really could go on and on about her practices, self centered attitude and the stories she makes up to get attention. Lets stick to the facts though.

Joanne Brown will never appear on here to defend herself, cowardly is the correct term to use here. She will never admit to being a fraud due to surrounding herself with so called friends who think she is amazing. This is no surprise due to the fact anyone who goes against what she says or tries to question her is soon thrown into the trash pile, no matter how much they have done for her.
As for refund! HA, Joanne Brown has the mentality that everything she gets or receives is hers no matter what, even if it should be returned or refunded.

Joanne Brown uses people until they have no further benefit, again this is also true in giving readings to get peoples money to pay for her own desires. This is also not the only Fraud she has done. She has pulled on heart strings to gain funds before. But not using the paranormal world, instead using her children as an excuse to try and free people from their money.

Enough said, well done on exposing this EYE ON THE PARANORMAL. Long may your work continue

The Fraudulent Mediums Act in the
United Kingdom

"In the UK, psychics have to be VERY careful when making claims. In 2008 the 'Consumer Protection' law was amended to include psychics, mediums and other practitioners of the paranormal. They are now effectively covered by consumer law and cannot make unsubstantiated claims. In essence this means that most such people have to display a notice which says that what they do is 'for entertainment only'. Of course the fortune tellers and psychics did not like this one little bit. They organised marches and protests against the new legislation, but happily to no avail. So, if you live in the UK and are tempted to visit a spiritualist, psychic, medium, fortune teller or any other such practitioner, don't forget that you are protected by the law. If they claim that they can talk to your recently deceased relative, or they can tell what your future holds, then make sure they have a disclaimer which says that it is for entertainment purposes only. If not you should notify local trading standards officials, who can close them down."

We have a screen shot of Joanne Browns psychic page and I don't believe I saw any such disclaimer. Hummm, here we go again!

Michael, you are awesome as always, dont worry I can see this coward for what she is and I've tagged everything about her correctly, she is so green with envy it just outrages her I have everything she cant have, friends, looks, a brain, hot BF, a new home and new car too!..you name it she covets all that I am .. she is a stalker period lol , internet is full of nobody idiots like her..

I asked Kirby to delete her comments from here on out, the focus here is on Joanne Brown and her fraudulent acts

btw..did I read she had to clean 5 more bedpans until she goes home? hehehehe... gross

Aanica said...

Michael we do have that screenshot!

I am betting that is one reason why Ms. Joanne Brown is MIA

A law against such fraudulent acts is the kind of legislation we need in the USA too.

Bobnoxious said...

Wow "Aanica" really has some jealous irrelevant hags hounding her LOL

Sure anyone can create a website, it's the capacity to generate traffic that makes one successful.(which she has evidently done)

Take it a compliment when someone invests this much time in you over obvious envy or holds this much of a grudge over you blaspheming a washed up paranormal TV star or fake psychic (an oxymoron)

I agree that it must suck to have to empty bed pans on he a full stomach.(wage slave)

King Krimson said...

The "For Entertainment Only" disclaimer is a proactive step in the right direction but doesn't a certain TV psychic(s) here in the U.S. have a similar notice on his website? They just play it off as a legal annoyance they are forced to endure to protect them from litigation and of course their dumb clientele believe it like everything else they are spoon fed from their Woo Gurus.

Oh my, the plaque scraper is sure upset LOL.

I suppose when you really don't have any concrete facts about someone or a legitimate gripe and you need someone to blame for why your life is meaningless, you may as well invent a few things about your perceived persecutor to help validate that irrational fixation.

Aanica, How would the LICENSED PROFESSIONAL plaque scraper know your home owning history? Is this info posted somewhere or is she just filling in the blanks much the way the dentist fills in a cavity after she's done scraping.

What you posted at "CTPOST" was a hodgepodge of partial posts and comments out of context and proved nothing. LOL-Everyone ignored you as the blithering idiot you are and posted around you before you got banned.

If they did write an article about Aanica I'm quite comfortable with my presumption that you wouldn't be the author.

Kind of ironic (and insane) that you would accuse someone of "craving attention" while you are cyber stalker her.

Re. the parents need support page
Just a cursory glance at the FB pages of any of the three 'advisers', who are frankly barely literate, would not encourage me, however desperate, to seek support from either Joanne or her credulous groupies.
However the information about 'Helping Children with Autism' is, unusually for Joanne, not only very helpful (particularly for parents living in the US - pity she's writing from and for the UK) but surprisingly well written - most of her web sites are full of schoolkid grammatical howlers.
This is probably because the information is directly taken from an American non profit resource HELPGUIDE.org Authors: Melinda Smith, M.A., Jeanne Segal, Ph.D., and Ted Hutman, Ph.D (UCLA Center for Autism Research Treatment).'All rights reserved'
Needless to say there is no acknowledgement or apparently any understanding of plagiarism or concern for the law of copyright

Rhonda Short President SPPI said...
Now it is my turn! You have slandered Ms Brown in many ways. As I see it she has grounds to sue you. First you do not respect her ability because you set her up to 'prove' your point. Your motives in having a reading were not on the up and up. Therefore you will not get an accurate reading to begin with. For the record, Ms Brown does have computer problems occasionally.

I am a respected person on and off the paranormal field. I have used Ms. Brown's abilities professionally and personally.
I received 100% accurate readings and directions from her. She has even gone as far as finding a diamond ring that was lost, describing a 40 year old crime scene and the victim - by the (dead) victim's own description. It was confirmed by witnesses. She has warned me of things that were going to happen immediately, such as an entity telling me to change the fuse. All of my breakers in my house blew within moments of her telling me that. There are many more instances that I can elaborate on.

So accurate was her ability that it was confirmed with amazing results from different avenues. AND the most amazing part is that she did it from a different continent, never having met me or my group.

Take That,OBrien.

Bobnoxious said...

"SPPI" is a proud member of the "Official Ghost Adventures Crew" and it doesn't get more respectable than that!

LMAO!

Michael OBrien said...

@Rhonda Short

First, you say I set her up to, "prove my point?" If you bothered to read the entire article you would have seen where I specifically stated, "It is not that I did not believe in her claims of psychic abilities. In fact, I was totally prepared to offer her a fair shot."

Second, my motives, "weren't on the up and up?" Ms. Short, my motives were nothing but positive and philanthropic. I was prepared to take a financial hit so a friend wouldn't have to. I was also saving a friend from a HUGE emotional hit if this, "Psychic Medium, Joanne Brown," was indeed a hack. Which is exactly what she ended up proving she was.

Third, you countered "she does have computer problems occasionally." Well Ronda, isn't that even more reason to fully refund me? A 45 minute reading was reduced to 3 minutes due to computer problems [as JB admitted] and she STILL felt entitled to keep my money? Also, if she were having computer issues, do tell me how she CONTINUED to gab on with her psychic Facebook friends but not me? All of these communications were on Facebook so why was it working for everybody but me?

Now, you've taken the time to write a freaking term paper on JB's psychic superiority but I see you glossed over every important question. Here's one, why did the promise of a 100% guarantee mean NOTHING to your little psychic buddy Rhonda? Better still, why did she promise a full refund then block me? Why did she duck and cover when confronted? Why, when she KNEW I was going to write an exposé on her regarding her ineptitude and thievery, did she STILL attempt to screw me over? Also, why is she feeling shocked and victimized that she was publicly exposed as a fraud? For Gods sake, she didn't have to be psychic to see this article coming. I freaking told her in my email but she STILL refused a refund! Lastly, why hasn't SHE come forward to defend herself and sort this out?

Obviously you are having some communication with her Rhonda so do pass on this message. "This will not end until Joanne Brown refunds my money 100% and admits to each of my accounts in this exposé as 100% truth as well."

As for your riveting testimony of Joanne Browns supreme psychic excellence? Ya, ya, we've heard from groupies like you before. "Joanne's great, Joanne's good, Let us thank her for this food. Amen." Yada, yada, yada. You spend all that time preaching her magnificence yet you managed to answer nothing pertinent. Why it's that Rhonda?

As for your final comments: "NOW I AM GOING TO QUOTE YOU: NO PERSONAL ATTACKS. YOU COMMITTED A PERSONAL ATTACK ON MS. BROWN. IF THIS IS NOT POSTED AS A BLOG COMMENT IT WILL BE POSTED ALL OVER THE PARANORMAL COMMUNITY AND YOU WILL BE SHOWN FOR THE FRAUD YOU ARE. A PUBLIC RETRACTION AND APOLOGY IS EXPECTED FROM YOU, Michael O'Brien AND THE 'EYE ON THE PARANORMAL' BLOG OWNER TO MS. BROWN FOR THE PAIN AND SUFFERING YOU HAVE CAUSED HER!" First off, there will be no retraction or apology on the part of myself, my Special Contributor, EOTP or SciFake. I wrote and printed the truth and I can prove every allegation I waged. Secondly Rhonda, lets try and use our, "indoor," voice from here on out okay? Good girl.

In closing, you stated, "I picked the wrong medium to bully." No sweet cheeks, Joanne Brown picked the wrong Correspondent to steal from!

You didn't make a donation to the SPCA.

Also-that RI report you wrote was one of the most idiotic things I have ever read. The next time you wonder why everyone in your life ignores you or why nobody respects your opinion; remind yourself that you a such an unabashed moron that you actually embarked on cyber stalking campaign because some paranormal TV star you worship was criticized. (A TV star that does not know or care that you exist I might add). Instead of stalking people on the internet why not replace the batteries in that little gadget you keep in your night stand?

I'm starting to think this, Para Norma Jean, is like those unruly children who can't make a distinction between, "good attention and bad attention." I swear, she's either a 10 year old girl or an 87 year old crazy cat lady.

Ha! I just love you Bob! Hilarious!

Glad to hear that, UK laws are quite strict and when you can prove you paid, you were told you would receive a refund (screenshot and print) and you did not, guess what? You're a law breaker and you have problems coming your way!

Joanne Brown fake psychic, fraud- you should have listened to your friends and gave the refund as you said you would, been humble and you could have just faded away.. Now you're still fading away but now you'll also need a barrister. dumbass..

Bawahahahahaha! got to love that bob, he never misses a trick!

Michael OBrien said...

@Bobnoxious, King Krimson and Aanica Who's funnier!? Hilarious! All of them! Thanks for the laughs!

Michael OBrien said...

We never wrote this exposé on Joanne Brown to recoup my meager financial losses. Nor did we write this with the intent to destroy her. I assure you, that was Joanne's doing. Our intent was to bring to light the reprehensible abuses by some people who profess to be, "healers." In our opinion, these charlatans that disguise themselves as humanitarians need to be unmasked post haste. That was our intent and I'd say that mission was accomplished.

Again, I personally never implied psychic gifts cannot exist. In fact, I fully subscribe to the theory that one of the hardest things to prove in science is that something does [not] exist. Hell, perhaps one can possess psychic abilities. I don't know. However, I've never disregarded my belief that one can simply be adept at saying exactly what others need to hear at the perfect time. With that, they then [assume] they're psychically gifted. In any event, I do believe both [can potentially be] psychologically auspicious in some respects.

Then again there are those bottom feeders like Joanne Brown. Lying, thieving and deceptive impostors here only to sponge off and take from the weak. I liken people like her to those who care for the wounded and steal their pain medication. A harsh analogy yes, but one I believe to be spot on.

Lastly, to Joanne Brown:

Thankfully Karma has made certain the internet will not see a day when a Google search on your name doesn't expose you as the pathetic fraud you are. You know Joanne, my father always told me that the only two things we truly hold in this world are our name and our word. Sadly, neither of yours are worth a damn at this point. (A special thanks to Aanica G, Kirby R, Lisa M and Ron T) Furthermore, Karma has assured that you find yourself with almost no support, if any. Yes, we [were] witness to your vehement cries to your so-called friends regarding your credibility that went completely unanswered. What's more, the majority of your cronies that chose to defect from your manipulative grip rather than even associate with you.

Seriously Joanne, you were the best $32.56 I ever spent.

The militant gay rights movement is indicative of this slide into darkness and societal chaos. Sexual perversion is notorious for bringing down civilizations. What was the most noble form of sexuality in ancient Greece...pedophilia. NAMBLA is now seeking to be recognized as part of the democratic ideal. We are playing with fire here and everybody is going to get burned.

No, this person appears to be posting part of something out of context as an effort to discredit Mr Hunnemann (with 2 N's). At least that's my impression.

MARK HUNNEMANN HATES WOMEN!

"Redemption: mind over matter, female over male. In Aquarian eschatology (end times) the ultimate incarnation of the antichrist may well be a woman.... As with the gnostics, contemporary New Age thinking sees the female principle as holding the keys to salvation. Many, including in the church, are calling for a return to goddess spirituality because of the alleged destructiveness of the male, patriarchal God of the bible. Much of radical feminism, which is largely responsible for the murder of over 50 million.babies since Roe, is borne along by the myth of the woman as the savior. They look to a mythical past (because it never happened) when there was comprehensive peace due to female dominance. The Jewish feminist theologian Rita Gross advocates the borrowing of Hindu traditions in order to effect the "the second coming of the goddess". (the bible is clear about role distinctions in the church, based on God's creation) As with gnostics, New Age teaching is intent on turning Gen.1-3 on its head.The Creator God and Adam were fools, and Eve is enlightened by Lucifer--who is emerging as the true spiritual leader under the New Age umbrella or rainbow."

DID YOU KNOW THAT:

Presbyterians provided the rising Ku Klux Klan of the early 20th century with a good pool of candidates for their movement against Catholics, Jews, blacks and anything that did not conform with their beliefs.

Godswill Ministries would have had a problem.

Someone just emailed me and told me someone else called me a Muppet on this site. Because of my eyebrows I presume. I didn't see the post but for one, I'm quite proud of my eyebrows. I have my daddy's eyebrows. And two, instead of getting angry I got to thinking. If I were a Muppet which Muppet would I be? I'm going to go with Beaker. I'd have all the benefits of crystal methamphetamine but with none of the paranoia's, potential arrests and pesky scabs.

Ya, I can't believe I dignified that with a response either.

@Presbyterian Church Hater:

You are posting in the wrong blog idiot, go spam elsewhere.

@Anonymous Homophobe

So is calling Ms. OBrien "Gay" supposed to be an insult? That's like calling me a "smart-ass".

(Sometimes I wish I was Gay so I would have a clue when my clothes are out of style.)

@ Michael ...I like your eyebrows damn are kidding me, those are a models dream! I have to add a bit of color to mine or no one can see them! they're too damn light, my daddy's a blonde German! ha!

REPORT FROM “an insider”

Ok everyone attention new screenshot just submitted to us by “an insider” I added it to the article at the end..and it shows her asking others to attack a girl on Facebook named Melisa Moore and she is also attacking Ms O’Brien for her sexuality; Joanne Brown is a very filthy individual, now we have cyber bullying and discrimination hate speech!

@Bobnoxious...
I don't hate the Presbyrterian Church. I am Agnostic.. borderline Atheist.

I thought the purpose of this blog "EYE ON THE PARANORMAL" was to expose frauds?

Reverend Mark Hunnemann is a Fraud.

I am not the same "Anonymous" poster who is bashing gays. That's some other idiot who quoted what I said on another article here. I guess they've learned a new word today. "Abyss." Someone is keen on trouble making.

That someone is not me. And he's doing an inadequate job of pretending to be me. Very sophomoric.

I thought it would be obvious by the discongruity of syntax in our writing styles.

Hi,

I am in the process of creating a blog about the same topic, but more focused. I'm targeting an "up and coming" John-Edward-wannabe medium.

This post and your "God vs. Psychics Parts 1 and 2" were excellent. I can't wait to read more.

I agree with you wholeheartedly. I was wondering if I may quote some parts of your posts and link to your blog, crediting you as the source?

I think it is great that you are working to expose these lowest of the low scammers.

Have you wondered why Joanne Brown took down her websites, she was attempting to sell a paranormal magazine online using paypal, that was until I discovered the magazine never existed. Why is it her so called tech manager Lee Vallance now goes by the name Lee Brown.

Aanica said...

Excellent, I am so glad you told me I was just doing a little reliving the fun and re-reading the article, I also noticed the links were dead, I actually figured she didn't pay the web bill and they took it off line.. but should have known it just another hustle scam going on
