Fortune Teller Who Scammed Wall Street Trader Gets Early Jail Release for Good Behavior


Sometimes the headlines just write themselves. Back in 2008, when fortune tellers were a greater evil than Wall Street, an innocent but spiritual 42-year-old stock trader went to Tammy Mitchell’s storefront “Psychic Reader” shop for a “diagnosis,” and ended up paying her $487,000 to get the evil out of his life.

Pretending to have occult powers to “give advice on personal matters and to exorcise, influence and affect evil spirits and curses,” is not okay, however, and Mitchell was charged with “grand larceny and fortune-telling.”

However, via DNA Info, Mitchell will be released from prison for good behavior as early as Valentine’s Day. The question at the top of everyone’s minds, of course, is…did she already know this?
