She dressed up like a psychic and told them what they wanted to hear. Guess what they believed?
Remember Miss Cleo?
She was a scam artist. Before she became Miss Cleo, she was Youree Harris. Youree Harris was not Jamaican, but she played one on stage whose name just so happened to be Cleo. Using the name Miss Cleo, she was the spokeswoman for a pay-per-call service called Psychic Readers Network that would you guessed it provide psychic readings.
But “Miss Cleo” didn’t have psychic powers. She was just good at teasing out enough about people to make plausible assumptions about them.
She was just doing what this lady is doing.
Surprise! Her company was sued by the Federal Trade Commission for fraudulent claims and misleading business practices.
Don’t wait for the FTC to save you.
If you want to ask a psychic a question, try a life coach or a therapist instead. You’re much less likely to get ripped off.
