Obviously, they are complete frauds. If they were not fraudulent, they would not ask if there is an "m" in the audience, they would instead walk
right up to someone, say "Mrs. Karen Smith, your deceased mother, Janice, says that the banana accident was not your fault, it was the fault of the
forklift operator who fueled his propane tank too full. Your mother says she is very happy now as she is with your previously deceased father, Joe
Smith, who died in a nasty incident involving some cordless headphones, and a remote car starter...". If the medium STATED this, and not asked if
there is a "m" in the audience, I would be able to believe a little better...
IMO, these mediums are very good "psychologists". They have an ability to read people, and at the same time (after lot's of training), know what
type of "leading" questions to ask to pry information out that is "read between the lines" so to speak. With this, they can ask other appropriate
leading questions to get out more info that seems revelating. Then top off the short conversation with a "the dead are happy, they want you to be
happy" statement to make the audience member feel good about the experience and go away feeling like they actually communicated with their loved
ones. They may now feel like they have finally said "goodbye" to their loved ones, so it may not be a bad experience overall for the audience
member. If the experience makes them feel better about losing their loved ones, then (even if the whole thing is a fraud) I don't see why it is a
total bad thing that these mediums are performing this fraudulent act...
