    Miss Cleo Settlement Worth Half-Billion to Consumers
    The Federal Trade Commission announced a settlement of its class action against Access Resource Services Inc. and Psychic Readers Network Inc., the operators of the "Miss Cleo" psychic readings service. Under the settlement, the companies agreed to forgive about $500 million in outstanding charges, to stop trying to collect money from customers who called the service, and to return all uncashed checks to customers.

    The book author of "Tarot Made Easy" by Nancy Garen is a personal friend of my wife. Psychic Readers Network Inc. had also instructed all of their "telephone psychics" to use & recite Nancy Garens book to become a "psychic". Nancy has also been awarded an undisclosed amount of money for the settlement of her copyright infringement from the direct use of her book for fraud purposes.

    It is truly sad that this comapny and other big fraud companies utilized Tarot as a means to deceive millions of unsuspecting people out of their hard earned cash.

    And yes Gwhite, Ms. Cleo (not real name) was informed of the litigation coming and she was actually instrumental (to some degree) to the downfall of Psychic Readers Network Inc. with her cooperation per attorney statements. Not that Ms. Cleo had a whole lot of choice in her deposition hearings if she did not want to carry the weight and responsability of others actions.

    The information on this case was available at http://www.tarotnews.com/ before the settlement. It has since been removed per the agreement of the settlement.
