this is disgusting

I just received this email:

"Dear Travis,

We must speak with you. I don’t usually take the time out to write a personal note, Travis, but your name was provided by someone you had recently spoken to. We believe your vibrations to be so strong that I’ve endorsed a free Tarot reading with one of our elite psychics! It’s urgent, however, that you call immediately—I can only reserve this number for a limited time.

Travis, we sensed that your connection is likely to be unusually strong, especially in the very near future. It is vital that you call us right away to optimize the results of your reading. There’s not much time!

With love and prayers,

Miss Cleo

P.S. Please do not share this number with anyone—it is meant only for you, Travis. However, you must call soon—we can only reserve this number for a short time. Call toll-free *bla-bla-bla* right now!"

Fellow human beings pretending to care, trying to play with your emotions and manipulate you into giving them money.

Sorry for making the topic subject so vague.. I should have been more descriptive than just "this is disgusting."

Isn't she already being sued for this crap?

I don't know. I kind of hope so. She/they are not doing anything illegal (as far as I know) but it's pretty pathetic. And there are some people who are more emotionally vulnerable to this kinda thing, ya know?

You should feel honore Travis, she wrote to you personally(and that doesn't usually happen!) and you have STRONG vibrations.
Whip out that Visa card man and give her a call!

Ugh. Anything containing the word vibrations freaks me out, just to start with.

Yeah, I know how you feel, but if she would just ask for me to contact her during one of her commercials, all would be forgiven..
"Travis! I know you iz out dere watchin' me right now! Call me before dat number expires!!"
