Self-described clairvoyant and medium Noreen Renier claims to have hosted paranormal "super psychic" spiritual contact readings with Hollywood stars who died before 2013. Using her entities Sing and Robert she's claimed contact with other famous figures who died. But eye-witnesses report that she lies and uses distortions, exaggerations, and misleads in her visionary charades. Is she credible? A federal judge ordered her to pay one of her victims over $40,000.00 in a ruling against her. And another federal judge in March 2011 ruled against her stating she wasn't credible and had misled his court! Then in July 2011 a third federal judge ruled against her appeal stating that he too agreed with the judge who found her not credible. Could it get worse? On April 2012 three more judges in a court immediately under the U.S. Supreme Court (the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit) also rejected Noreen Renier's second appeal agreeing once again with the earlier "not credible" court decision. Thus her "not credible" court judgment issued in 2011 remains. So use caution. Many Facebook postings concerning Noreen Renier and her "high credibility" and "super accuracy" are internet posted shams. And as a lost person psychic detective Noreen Renier's results are highly exaggerated and often entirely bogus. A public service update on January 2, 2013 and a commercial-free sub-set of Noreen Renier profile index page..
Psychic investigator and police detective Noreen Renier claims she was "skeptical" about psychics before suddenly discovering her own "super psychic" abilities. But in fact her own mother was involved in paranormal interests and Noreen Renier has long showcased herself as a 'psychic-want-to-be' from her first exaggerated and hyped paranormal claims. There is nothing across more than 40 years of her work other than absolute support of paranormal abilities and references to communicating with the dead through her entities named Robert and Sing. She has refused to be questioned about why her "contact with the dead" communications won't match up with the privately held memories and even non-public home movies of family members of dead Hollywood stars. Rather than apparent guesses.
For decades she has promoted her "super psychic" readings at fees near $16 per minute --- readings "visioned" by "psychic medium" Noreen Renier which repeatedly have been shown as fabricated fantasies. Some eye-witnesses have publicly noted her lies and deceptions in her visions of events. Renier even authored a book where she claimed that one young woman had stumbled over a dead body after riding a snow mobile! The woman --- in actuality a search member looking for missing airplane passengers --- described that comment as "a complete lie." Yet Renier has continued re-publishing that charade --- just one among many --- even after she was notified it was a lie.
Even after being shown that her reading claims don't match the facts Noreen Renier has continued to regurgitate the same bogus nonsense as if it really happened in her books and before audiences and TV cameras.
Time and time again she answers a psychic reading using creative events much like a Nancy Drew mystery story. Yet she asks for fees more than 50 times the rate of others with far better records of credibility and foresight accuracy.
Her principal critic notes "Many of her paranormal crime and missing person case readings are certainly spectacular but have repeatedly been shown as tall tales or delusions from end to end. And many of those same exaggerations have been filmed by TV entertainment producers far more interested in getting sponsors than in examining the truth. She has in fact been paid thousands at typically $2500 a pop for a few minutes of video "re-enactments."
And in March 2011 a Virginia federal judge wrote in an 18-page court memorandum solely covering Noreen Renier that she was not a credible witness and that she had misled the court. Amazingly she appealed that ruling in a U.S. District court, but months later on July 22, 2011 her own appeals court rejected her 42-page appeal and ruled to let the initial judge's ruling stand.
On April 18, 2012 a court just one step down from the U.S. Supreme Court also issued a judgment against Noreen Renier, agreeing with the July 22, 2011 lower court's decision against her appeal.
In June 2011 a new book was released which is authored by Noreen Renier and falsely claims on its cover that she is "a investigator for the FBI." The book cover even shows an official badge and the FBI seal. But the FBI seal was used without FBI authorization and Noreen Renier has never been sanctioned by the FBI as an FBI investigator. Nor has she ever been issued a badge.
At best the claims are marketing charades and perhaps based in part of her false testimony of having worked on "several" FBI investigations.
A check with the FBI however verified that such a claim is absolutely false and she has been previously warned by an FBI officer of overstepping her claims relating to the FBI.
And her readings and contacts with the dead?
Even her earliest paranormal claims after a career as an actress and lounge entertainer included contacting the dead. As early as 1980 she was encouraging her clients to book readings with deceased relatives, friends, or famous people. Indeed under oath she admitted she acts as a dual entity host for two helpful contactees named Robert and Sing.
In 1985 Renier personally handed out promotional materials which included the statement that ". . .questions may be posed to 'Sing' and 'Robert,' Noreen's two main spiritual entities."
Apparently her spiritual entities are themselves dead and assist in the contact with other dead souls.
Exactly how far her paranormal claims go depends on whether or not you believe famous people would converse with a woman like Renier who charges others to make contact with famous people.
While one can't disprove that Renier actually communicates with the dead and/or has entities that communicate with the dead, it seems odd that famous dead people and Hollywood stars even if they could communicate back to the living would reach out for Noreen Renier.
Why would they wish to be tarnished with someone with her exaggeration record?
Renier's principal critic stated in 2004 "One lady told me that she and her husband were asked for two hundred dollars by Renier in order to converse with a Marion Morrison several years after his death. The skeptical husband made his wife agree beforehand to offer up only the name the person was born under. Renier apparently stumbled about not quite sure whether Marion was a woman or a man until the husband decided to at least assist by indicating the person was a man who also had gone by the name Duke and provided his place of birth and death."
The reading they received through psychic medium Noreen Renier from a dead Marion Morrison didn't match the Marion Morrison the couple were after even after more help to Renier. The couple was attempting to connect to actor John Wayne originally born as Marion Robert Morrison. Even with his birthplace, death location, age and birth name Renier completely missed the mark.
Another woman told Renier's critic that she called Renier hoping that as a TV psychic Renier would visualize the location of a lost bracelet.
However when Renier was unable to visualize where it might be found psychic Noreen Renier according to the woman suggested making contact with deceased Hollywood actor Cary Grant who had played a jewel thief in the movie To Catch A Thief.
The woman who was already dissatisfied with her first spiritual reading with Renier declined the additional offer, but others have also said Renier has referenced Cary Grant in her psychic readings.
A complete list of famous dead Hollywood people that Renier claims to have contacted or chain-contacted through one or more of her entities is known only within the mind of Noreen Renier. But her readings appear to be psychic events based solely on taking over-priced fees from clients and then regurgitating paranormal hocus pocus delusions alongside of poor acting and the tossing of her arms in the air.
Noreen Renier turned 76 years old on January 16, 2013.
