    I edited thos post to include this sentence. Contact the mods of THIS sub if a you are scammed.

    I am not a mod of THIS sub.

    The mods can the medium, suggest reparation or that the servives be given, or remove the medium after repeated complaints, from this sub only. We seem to be receiving reports of fake mediums scamming our users. Be careful.

    Some things to know about medium ethics.

    Paying your medium or tipping them ensures that you can receive future readings. Some of our mediums read free.

    There is a serious energy commitment and loss of time and effort in reading. We are often drawn to help a person asking for assistance, even if we are cash poor ourselves. It is a vocation.

    Even though it is a gift. Please pay your medium, or send a gratuity. If you are cash strapped, give the medium the option to decide if they can read for free, in advance. Many of us will do exactly that.

    3.. Do not give out TMI. please. Although some mediums like a photograph. Don’t give your full name. Don’t give credit card information. Don’t give too much.

    Ask for payment options at the beginning, though. At least you will know if you can tip or pay in that manner.

    4. Do not pay an r/MediumReadings medium in advance if the account is less than 30 days old, if they have no reviews, or if their karma is nonexistent or very low.

    There are some excellent readers here. Pay in advance if they have longevity. Pay in advance if they come well recommended. There are several here, that are trustworthy and that are reputable.

    If you choose to follow a link to a website hosted by a Medium here, that is fine. It is your choice. The more experienced, or full time professional mediums often have a website outside of reddit. Caveat Emptor. Don’t throw good money after bad.

    5. Do not give in to the “if you want more information, I will need more money”, ploy. Some people are scammed that way by fake or even genuine mediums. Agree on an amount of time. Agree to a price. Stick to it. If you want more time, definitely pay your medium for their energy and effort.

    When the time expires, end the reading.

    6. Be aware. If it feels wrong it may be wrong.

    7. Please report any post and potential scammers to the mods. The mods try to provide a sub that is conducive to everyone having a positive experience.

    8. Give that medium the opportunity to work out a time to read. If they take down their links or continue to ignore you, contact the r/Mediumreadings mods. I mod on other subs. Only the mods of this sub, can warn or ban a shady medium.

    10. Be safe.

    Thank you.

    I appreciate the mods here. I support them.

    “There is a serious energy commitment…”

    Amen to that.

    Hi dear! Everything you say is very true but I do feel 4 needs to be amended to include that perhaps its best to look at the profile before paying in advance. Many of us have been around for very long and do require our paid reading payments upfront especially in cases where the profiles are brand new and having been burned before. I spent two hours with a client as per her asking me to double the time if possible, during the reading she connected instantly and was very emotional with what I was channeling but yet she still didn’t pay. 🙁 had she asked truthfully then as you said perhaps we could have done it differently (less time for free of a lesser amount). But yeah it does happen that people take the don’t pay in advance rule to get out of paying all together 🙁

    I believe that I may have gotten scammed by someone, but… I am just chalking it up to a lesson learned.

    I have sent you a message, though. I could use reputable guidance/ reading. And the comments do sing your praises 🙂

    I am so sorry that happened! Ppl can be so awful. I don’t think she was fake but she just went poof, and disappeared. I sent you a message but I’m a stranger. I hope your day gets better and something good happens to brighten it. 🙂

    Where do we find the reviews? ( I’m fairly new to reddit, and don’t fully know all the ones and outs, but am learning ☺️)

    I have no issue paying mediums..and of course, one messaged me, and ASKS me “hi love, would you like a reading, I’m so sorry for your loss”
    Then, continued to fucking ask for a donation, talking about how busy she is and how many readings she’s doing etc..but she. Came. To. Me.
    If she didn’t ask for a donation, and actually Did give me a reading, I would have tipped anyways, or find a way to return a favor.
    That woman I dealt with, is 100% a phony. She messaged me 3 months ago after i posted a picture of my boyfriend and said he passed and if anyone connects with him can you please tell me, i was very desperate at this time. This amazing woman messaged me..she gave a long- on point reading, and it truly helped give me a Little peace..she never asked for anything but i truly thanked her repeatedly..
    Those are the real people.
