Fortune-telling has been in practice for thousands of years in various cultures all around the world, and still, they are very popular in Asian countries. But now, many people consider fortune-telling to be fraudulent activity.
Modern fortune-telling scam employs cold-reading abilities to detect the problems of the client. Fortune-tellers mostly refer to them as curses and charge money in order to diminish them. Once the client pays, these scammers do something fake, which will also convince them they are broken free from the curse.
