A bad week for psychics means a good week for us. We point out the fakes, the frauds, and the demonic.
Sylvia Brown Lies to Amanda Berry’s Mother
Sylvia Brown might be the worst of the worst when it comes to bad psychics. Not only is she a fake and a fraud, but she is a cult leader. She has published many books that are filled with false information she channeled from her demonic spirit guides. She told the parents of a missing young boy that he was dead and they needed to move on. Later the boy was found alive and well. Her response was “sorry.”
Well it seems that once is not enough for good old Sylvia. She told the mom of Amanda Berry, one of the three young woman found imprisoned in a Cleveland, Ohio home, that her daughter was dead. "Psychic Sylvia Browne, who has made a career of televised psychic readings, told Louwanna Miller on a 2004 episode of the show that her daughter was dead, causing Miller to break down in tears on the show's set." Amanda’s mother died a year later, thinking her child was dead. In reality, Amanda was alive and even gave birth to a granddaughter.
The above gives you the details but it doesn’t give us what we really need to know--how to stop these fakers from preying on the needs of the hurt and grieving.
It’s just for entertainment they say. We can’t see everything, they say. We can’t be right all the time…but they’ll take your money, they’ll plant false ideas in the heads of the public and they’ll smile all the way to the bank.
Documentary Claims PSYCHIC KIDS is Exploitive & Damaging to the Children
Chip Coffey’s having a bad psychic run. His show, Psychic Kids: Children of the Paranormal, is considered exploitive and harmful to the kids featured in it. This was seen in the 2009 documentary Starsuckers.
Anyone that has visited either The Eye on the Paranormal or SciFake knows that we have repeatedly warned the public about the possible psychological harm and exploitative elements that this show presented. Several parents have pimped their kids out to do readings for a fee. One set of parents has been busy in their efforts to turn their son and daughter into the next Mr. and Mrs. L Ron Hubbard.
Now we can add a new voice into the discussion [which is not really a discussion due to the fact that anyone connected with the show refuses to take part in one]. However, see this insightful documentary called STARSUCKERS.
The section regarding the show isn’t long, but they nail it better as shots of crying kids asking not to be a part of the show are riveting.

Chip Coffey’s Spirit Guides Fail Repeatedly
It seems that Chip’s trip north of the border wasn’t his finest time. Nor did it impress many others.
Maybe Chip’s spirit guides are on strike. Maybe they jumped ship and are off sailing with Theresa Caputo. It seems that canceled flights, late arrivals, false fire alarms, and less than full houses became the norm during his Canadian tour. Another huge miss on his part--a security detail was hired to make sure that myself, Ron Tebo, Beatrice Marot and other critics weren’t able get into his talks. Why would I or they even bother?
It doesn’t end there. Last week, Chip posted a warning on his page that Facebook was about to start charging for posting status updates. [It’s not true.] To keep getting important Coffey news, you had to make changes in your personal settings. If you made those changes, it left your account vulnerable. Either it was a warning from a source on this plane or the spiritual realm he was informed that the information he shared was incorrect. Chip removed the comment but failed to inform the public what he posted was incorrect. They needed to revert to their original settings.
Guess he figured his guides would do it…
