My question involves business law in the state of: Georgia
If someone opens a business as a fortune teller/psychic, could someone sue them if their "predictions" are inaccurate or they give them bad advice? I would imagine that most have a disclaimer that says something to the effect of "results not guaranteed" in the fine print. So, given that, it would seem like suing would be difficult. Sure, they could "get sued", but I'm guessing that with a disclaimer and the fact that the entire "business" is known to be highly questionable, it likely wouldn't go anywhere.
Also, could they be charged with fraud if they are lying about being psychic and are aware that they are deceiving people? I personally believe that in some rare cases, psychic abilities are genuine. However, I also believe that the vast majority of fortune tellers are scammers. However, due to the contested reality of psychic abilities, it seems like it would be difficult to consider it fraud, as in some cases, the fortune teller could be well intentioned but delusional (thus not fraud). So, for practical purposes is it legal for one to open up shop as a "fortune teller", because where I live, you see these probable scammers all over. And I just wondered about the legality of the practice.
