Etsy Witch Warning

It's come to my attention that there are multiple self-styled witches on Etsy who are performing "spells" for paying clients. Many of them claim to practice hoodoo and are charging $100-$150 for a "spell". I've looked into them and the majority of them are simply lighting candles, usually 7 day glass candles, and are calling it a "spell", as if that's what real conjure workers do, just light a 7 day glass candle because that's the sum of what we know and do. That's what hoodoo is right? We just light a candle and be done with it.

For one, these witches are stealing clients from legitimate workers. For another, they are not actually practicing hoodoo. Finally, these witches are scamming people. Simply lighting a 7 day glass candle should not cost over a hundred dollars. I charge $30 to set a light using a 7 day glass candle. Most workers charge between $25-$50 for this service.

Just another reason why I can't stand these self-styled witches. This is how they come in an destroy. The people who go to them do not know they are being ripped off and they don't know enough about real hoodoo v.s. this self-styled witch shit to be able to tell the difference.
