Pair Charged In Tarot Card Curse Scheme

(AP) Authorities say the owners of a suburban Chicago tarot-card reading business have been charged in an alleged plan to defraud customers by persuading them they were cursed.

The DuPage County sheriff's office says customers of Psychic Tarot Card Reading thought they could only lose the curse by undergoing thousands of dollars worth of counseling.

Tracy Tan is charged with eight felony counts, including theft, forgery and possession of fraudulent identification. Eric Tan is charged with felony possession of fraudulent ID.

They were being held at the county jail Monday in lieu of $750,000 bail each. They're scheduled to appear in court April 7.

The business, located in an unincorporated area near Naperville, is not listed.
