Psychic telephone readings are one of the famous forms of readings today. This commonly known form of distant reading is slightly similar to the readings through emails. The only difference is the readings through email are done over the internet. Distant reading by the way is perceiving one's future without even actually seeing him/her. This is possible through the person's Akashic record.
The Akashic record can be read once the client decides to have his/her reading. By reading it the psychic doesn't need to know too much personal information of the client. The psychic upon reading it can answer the client's queries immediately.
However since the psychic telephone readings are popular the risk of con artist also became higher. Some clients who only want to be read their future are misled into paying a lot for a teeny bit of information. These clients given the fact that they really want to know that information, gives in and pays them the amount that the con artist demands from them. They are then given the so called reading and by the time they realized it is fake, the con artist have already disappeared and can no longer be reached by phone.
In this kind of deceitfulness what the client receives is not actually psychic telephone readings but either a make believe information or a cold reading. A cold reading is a technic wherein a certain psychic fish for answers or information to a client's certain query. The psychic analyzes distinguishable information about his client such as his/her age, gender, religion, style and etc. The psychic then drop hints of having seen some unclear information. He then strategically coaxes this bit of information from the client without them noticing it.
The psychic after getting certain bits of information then having employed a logical guess puts them together and presents the bigger picture.
