I tell fortunes for sleight profit plenty of times. Most of it goes to charity and a bit toward Ramen and the new apartment I moved into.
It's mostly poppish-dandy college kids with the popped collar and the tilted hat that want to know if they'll grow up to be rich and famous. I do a bit of Oracling and Interpretation to them, and making an occasional gris-gris for luck (Good old alabama Hoodoo/Voodoo), and they pay me for simply my time. I don't charge people who REALLY want questions. I basically run a Wizarding service from my apartment when I'm not working or at School.
But I never claim to be a millionare's sister and defraud him tens of thousands of dollars. Lol.
Someone who was ACTUALLY under that influence wouldn't ask for money to go into business with someone. It sounds completely retarded atop that-
"Yea. I'm your long-dead sister. No, I'm not a well-educated con artist. Can I have $10,000 or so we can invest it and be rich? PLEASE?
