Spellcaster: Saviour or Scammer?

by Amelia Piper

Finding a spellcaster can be a bit of a lottery. With so many people out there vying for your hard earned cash, how on earth can you tell who you can trust? How do you find a genuine spellcaster among the myriad of scammers?
Of course, this is not a problem that is unique to spellcasting. Trying to find an honest professional can be hard in all sorts of trades. Car mechanics, plumbers, electricians, builders, and of course, spellcasters. Every profession has it’s share of charlatans, out to make a quick buck at the expense of the unwitting or uninformed punter.

It is fair to say though, that the spellcasting profession has somewhat more than it’s fair share of these low lives. Why is that? I suspect it comes down to four main reasons:

– Lack of recognised qualifications. If you want to see a hypnotist, or find an electrician, there are industry standard qualifications and certifications that these people can attain. Naturally, some people will say they have them even when they don’t, but it’s something you can check up on.

– Lack of any trade body. My friendly local plumber pays a yearly fee to be part of a nationwide body of plumbers, and has to pass regular inspections too. Other industries have similar schemes. They give you, the customer, confidence that you’re dealing with a professional. Unfortunately, no such schemes exist for spell casters.

– Hard to find recommendations. If you need someone to fix your car, you might ask around a few friends if they can recommend someone who they’ve used and who did a good job. But if you want a love spell casting, the chances are you’re not going to make that information public. So you can’t easily ask your friends for a reference. And even if you did, would they really tell you if they too had used a spell?

– No comeback. If you get ripped off on ebay, you can leave a bad review. If an Amazon seller fails to deliver, the same thing applies. If a dodgy character claims to be casting a spell for you, but runs off with your money, who can you complain to? Chances are, nobody.

Taken together, these factors make it difficult for us, the customer, to get any kind of feedback about a spell caster before paying them. At the same time, they make it easy for scammers to set up shop and sell “spells”, when in reality they are simply taking your cash and laughing all the way to the bank, with no magical work being done at all.

So how do you go about getting a love spell with any kind of confidence? Well in my view, the best thing you can do is cast the spell yourself. There are some excellent love spells available in kit form, that offer easy instructions, and are usually cheaper than paying a spellcaster. Doing the spell yourself means you can be sure it’s actually being cast.

But if you don’t want to go down that road, and would rather abdicate responsibility for the actual casting, there are some telltale signs to watch out for when looking out for scammers:

– How many spells do they offer? Spell casting is a niche subject, and genuine practitioners specialise in just one or two areas. If you see someone offering tens or hundreds of different spells, be very cautious. No real spell caster can spread themselves that thinly.

– What payment methods do they accept? Paypal offers a limited amount of redress, and if Paypal get too many complaints about an account holder, they’ll shut down that account. On the other hand, Western Union offers no guarantees, no feedback, and no comeback. It’s untraceable. If you send off payment using them, you can expect to never see it again, no matter what. And of course, cash stuffed envelopes are a big no-no.

– How long have they been in business? Try and find out – if they’ve been around for a few years, there’s a much higher chance they’re genuine. If they just popped up overnight, they could be literally anyone, just trying it on.

– How much do they charge? Sadly I hear stories of people being ripped off every day. And there’s a common thread – most people are taken for hundreds or thousands of dollars. Often they start out paying very little, but then the “spellcaster” tells the customer they’ve hit a blockage and need more money to carry on, or the situation will get worse. Genuine casters never do this, ever. And they charge a reasonable amount, in line with a good days work.

It’s tempting to look at internet forums as well, to try and find feedback about individual casters, but I would personally pay no attention to these whatsoever. Forums where people report scams are wide open to abuse. If a scam spellcaster decides to set up shop, the first thing they do is go onto as many forums as they can and bad mouth the competition. This puts them at an immediate advantage, because they’re suddenly the only caster around with no negative comments. So as a rule, I give such forums a wide berth.

Finding a spellcaster doesn’t have to be difficult. With a little bit of common sense, it’s not too hard to spot the rip off merchants. If you can, cast a spell yourself, it’s the best way to be certain the spell is being done. Otherwise, keep your wits about you, and make sure you pay a fair amount. If someone asks for extra money to carry on, drop them like a hot potato.

    OK. for one thing i don’t believe in all this karma thing, a lot of people come to me with this idea in their head and they sound scared, what if, what if, what if, and then a lot of them begin to give an example, let me say this that human life is full of tragedy and each time we are struck, we seek someone to take the blame. So are you thinking now that when after casting a spell there shouldn’t be any form of bad occurrence in your life ever? No! bad karma is a thing of the mind and often it has been inculcated into our sub-conscious right from the time we begin to learn about magic, so maybe its a mechanism set in place to make sure that magic is not abused but i have been practicing magic for up to 20 years now and i think the idea of karma is a story
