The following article was originally published 8th August 2007.
Recently on this website we have attacked the psychics who have in a desperate attempt at self publication, travelled to Portugal and tried to get involved in the Madeleine McCann case.
People like Diane Lazurus and Ben Murphy, as well as Amanda Hart who have released press releases telling of their psychic predictions and so on.
To this day NO psychic has been able to find Madeleine, or offer the police any help whatsoever.
(10 years later in 2017 as I republish this, the above statement still stands as a statement of fact)
Well now we have a PROVEN FRAUD in Goldy, a psychic who was exposed as such on BBC's The Bullshit Detectives cheating, attacking us sceptics for daring to critisise these media whores.
On Goldys latest MySpace Blog she writes:
We came to this conclusion due to the FACT that the psychics named released public press releases to the newspapers, and also due to the fact they have NOT actually found Madeleine or offered any REAL help to the investigation.
Not a single psychic in history has been able to prove they are genuine, you especially, in fact you are a proven fake.
As for the psychics mentioned, the very fact they released press releases should tell you that their only interest was that of publicity.
There is nothing more I would like than for Madeleine to be found alive, but if it does happen, it will be the hard work of the Portugese police and foresics, as well as the British detectives working hard.
It wont be because of 3 self proclaimed psychics contradicting each other, and releasing PR info to the media.
Ask yourself Goldy why they didn't just find Madeleine, and quietly be happy with their acheivement, instead we had this self promotion off the back of a very sensitive case.
For the record the family did NOT ask for any psychic help, and in fact due to their Catholic backgrounds would be very strict against the use of psychics.
We don't give these frauds the benefit of the doubt because they do not deserve it. They are self proclaimed unproven Acorah wannabes, people who go to every Audition for a psychic on TV, trust me I know I have seen them.
As for saying a prayer, well who should I pray to? God? I would be more interested in asking YOUR god why he would allow Madeleine to be taken in the first place.
And what exactly have you done Goldy?
In the past 40 years of your horrid little life, what have you ever done to actually help solve a crime?
On the BadPsychics team we have real police officers, people who have worked on serious cases, helped solve real crimes with real detective work.
You throw stones, when in fact you should be ashamed of yourself.
Yes, it matters if that person is giving false hope, sending police on wild goose chases, upsetting the parents and so on.
What is sick is trying to make your name off of the back of the abduction of a young child, releasing press releases just to get your name in the papers in conjunction with a missing child case. That is sick Goldy, and you are sick for supporting these people.
You lay your hat off? I am sure that will mean a lot to them.
Personally I feel physically sick that there are evil scum out there who would committ such a heinous crime like abducting a child, I really don't give a shit about the feelings of a couple of frauds trying to make their name off of the back of such a crime.
