“When will you marry?”,“When will you die?”, “Where can I find a safe place?”, “Will humans ever stop fighting war?”, “Will I ever return to my family?”, “Is there a place where they will accept me?”. How many questions can a person ask a fortune-teller?
The site allows you to ask ‘Google Fortunetelling’ what you want to know about your future by simply typing your question into the search bar, just like you would with a normal Google search.
It was first created in 2015, but considering the topsy-turvy nature of how things are going across the world, more and more people are worried about what the future holds for them and just the prospect of knowing the future is lucrative enough to make you try it at least once.
The Google “Fortune-telling” web page went viral after people saw it promising to predict their future. Of course, it was a fake, but not a mere diversion to some cheap product or scheme, but only to confront the people with a very real and current issue about the refugee crisis.
As soon as you enter a question or choose from the preset one, the Google Beta page redirects to a new page that reveals the real purpose of the “fortunetelling scam.”
The page has an admonishing tone where it states how they obviously can’t predict your future, but they want to create awareness about the 60 million war-forced refugees who are not even sure if they have a future at all.
“With this project we want to create awareness. We need structural solutions on political level for this growing European problem. Please feel free to donate your time, money or love and spread the word,” the site says.
