Fortune Teller Scam Costs Store Clerk $140

A clerk at a local convenience store said she was scammed out of $140 by a woman pretending to be a fortune teller. The woman entered the Kangaroo Express on Brogden Road Thursday night. She told the clerk she was a fortune teller and could tell the 19-year-old clerks future by reading a $100 bill. The clerk pulled the money from the register and handed it across the counter. The fortune teller then asked for two $20 bills to reveal even more of the clerk’s future. When the clerk became distracted the woman fled from the business. Police are reviewing video surveillance in hopes of identifying the scam artist.
