Is there a code of ethics for psychics and mediums?

by Bob Olson, Best Psychic Directory founder & author of Answers About The Afterlife.

No, there is no code of ethics that governs all psychics or mediums and no board or governing agency that oversees psychics and mediums. There are laws that protect the public against fraud, which are usually governed by the state attorney general’s office, but these can differ from state to state.

Don’t be fooled by websites that have appointed themselves as a governing agency, association, or bureau in the psychic or medium field. There are no such organizations acting on behalf of the government or any consumer group, regardless of how official their website looks.

In most cases, such websites that present themselves with the image that they are a governing or overseeing board in this field are merely promotional venues for an individual psychic or medium to advertise themselves. The evidence of this is that you’ll notice one psychic or medium (often the owner of the site) is posted all over the site in order to promote his or her reading services. It fools a lot of people, which is why they do it. But now it won’t fool you.
