Facebook is full of fake psychics selling £10 readings. And because of the low price, most people don't take them very seriously, and rarely complain once they realise they have been scammed. And unfortunately for a Facebook Psychic by the name of Brodie Mcdougall, she has found herself humiliated after one of her god awful readings went viral on Twitter (54,000 likes, 12,000 Retweets), and then to make matters worse it got picked up by the media.
For once I don't even need to expose a psychic, when they are this bad they expose themselves.
This all started when Twitter user Matthew Currie decided to share to the world a reading his friend "Niamh" had received.
And if all of that wasn't bad enough, someone replied with the following.
Brodie Mcdougall without doubt you are one of the worst Facebook Psychics I have ever seen, and it is already such a low bar. I wont even put you on the Big BadPsychics List, you are too bad to even make that list. I am tempted to create a new list called "The Big Humiliated Useless Fake Psychic List" just for you to sit on alone, but that is too cruel even for me.
Time for you Brodie Mcdougall to quit flogging terrible readings on Facebook and get a real job.

After posting this article a few things have come to light regarding Brodie Mcdougall.
The first one being she seemingly has at least 15 Facebook accounts, all with the same name, but different profile photos. What does this mean? Honestly I have no idea. But it is very suspicious to have so many facebook accounts all under the same name, and all seem active. Does Brodie Mcdougall even exist as a real person, or is she a character made by someone purely to flog fake psychic readings? If you know please let me know too.
I have also heard that she also flogs readings on Snapchat, and much like Facebook she also has multiple accounts on Instagram. Combining all of these profiles, she has tens of thousands of followers, so a very big pool of gullible people to get money out of. This smacks to me of a professionally organised system, and not just a random young woman selling readings online.
Also after posting this article I had a lot of people send me their readings from her. The vast majority were very generic stuff, so I wont republish here, as it is not that interesting. One thing I did notice though was that she likes to tell people that they are going to have a baby, as that seems to be a very common trend.
Anyway I have chosen this reading as one that really amused me from all that were sent in.
If you have had a reading from her, please take a screenshot, and send it to me.
Feel free to contact me through Twitter @TheBadPsych or Facebook
And if they amuse me I might just add them here.
