Tarot Card Crime

The owners of suburban Chicago's boringly names Psychic Tarot Card Reading have been charged with defrauding customers of thousands of dollars. The unfortunate dupes were told they suffered from a severe case of psychic curse (it burns in your swimsuit area) that could only be healed by repeated and expensive psychic counseling. A crime, to be sure, but isn't the bottom line here that they lied to people in order to take their money? And if that's the case, isn't claiming any factual basis to your tarot card reading doing exactly the same thing? How is it not fraud when you collect fat wads of cash in exchange for telling people that the ace of cups says they're going to lead a life of great wealth and happiness? And why do I keep asking questions to which I will never receive an answer? More details here.
