People who practice witchcraft have been called many things over the years — add “principled” to the list.

A writer for The Daily Dot recently felt backlash from the online witching community after hiring a witch on the Web to cast a spell in aid of their marriage. According to a story on the news website, the writer was taken to task by one commenter, claiming to be a witch herself.

“That was probably the dumbest thing you could have ever done,” the anonymous person wrote. “Speaking as a witch, I would never cast a spell for anyone for payment. That’s ethically wrong.”

The witch-for-hire business has had an online presence since at least 2012, when the service was banned by the popular auction website eBay. That year, the website prohibited users from selling items classified as “metaphysical,” including potions, curses and spells.

However, some practitioners of witchcraft still offer their services, sometimes for a pretty penny.

In 2013, a self-proclaimed psychic from Salem, Mass., allegedly charged a person more than $16,000 “to have a shield placed over him to protect him,” police told Salem News.

An Internet search of “witches for hire” will brings several results, including a U.K.-based woman who specializes in “love spell casting ... for anyone who is 20 years of age or older,” according to her website.

Although eBay banned the sale of spells, similar listings can still be found on websites like Etsy and ArtFire. For instance, one shop on ArtFire offers customers a number of spells including hex reversals and weight loss spells — to the tune of $49 apiece.

Jennifer Sanchez

Many people have wrote articles of how they were helped by a spell caster but I am very grateful to this great spell caster who brought my ex husband back to me. This testimony is a true story and my name is Jennifer Sanchez. When i came in contact with this man was also through a testimony written about him and i have also encountered many testimonies about how he has been helping others with their life. To get back with an ex is one of the most inner most feeling many people would love to experience especially as those memories with our ex always cloud our mind when someone else does some of those things our ex used to do. I was a single parent for almost 6 years and though my ex husband was far away from my kids i still wish someday he will return back to me. This spell doctor i encountered known as Doctor Odunga helped me with my wishes and i am happy to say that i am back with my ex husband and i am very happy sharing the testimony with everyone so that they too can meet this great doctor and solve their problems. I don't know what others might feel about getting their ex back in their life but i always know there is a blessing in disguise with just a single reconnection with an ex. If you want to successfully get back with your ex, visit this website odungaspelltemple. wordpress. com or contact this great spell caster at odungaspelltemple @ gmail .com and share an awesome testimony too just like me
