    I’m not sure whether future telling for fun is an acceptable thing or not, but these aggressive fraudsters are despicable. A good expose on The Good Thinking site http://goodthinkingsociety.org/good-thinking-investigates-palmistry-part-3/

    Ten years for fraud? Not nearly long enough, especially if she’s incapable of paying restitution. I’ve long thought that fraudsters and confidence men/women should be punished more harshly than armed robbers. If someone sticks a gun in your stomach and demands your wallet, that’s a very straightforward–and in some ways “honest”–transaction. No deceit is involved. Truth is not perverted. If, on the other hand, someone plays on your trust and pretends to be your friend or advisor or benefactor and then cheats you out of money, that someone makes a mockery of trust and truth and does far more damage to society than does the garden-variety stickup man. I suppose I just hate a liar.

    Lesson learned: don’t do the crime if you can’t predict the time.
