Elizabeth Francis and Friends


A year ago the woo magazines were awash with adverts for psychics and tarot readers claiming to be "accurate".


Their numbers are thinner on the ground now, but there are still a few of them buzzing around like irritating little mosquitoes.


Here are seven "accurate" psychics, starting with the serial offender pictured above, Elizabeth Francis.

The advert, for Elizabeth Francis, promotes a psychic telephone service.

1. "Elizabeth Francis - Psychic - Medium - Tarot - Accurate & No-nonsense..."

I'd like to challenge whether the claim that Elizabeth Francis's psychic services are "accurate" is misleading.
