Fortune-teller arrested after dodgy prediction

A fraudulent fortune-teller failed to foresee her own arrest on Saturday in Phnom Penh, after the sceptical neighbour of one of her clients questioned her mystical abilities.

The woman had told her clients to dig for treasure hidden on the property. After two fish sculptures were unearthed, the oracle demanded $16,000.

When a neighbour revealed the oracle had a history of dodgy prophecies and exuberant invoices, the family kept their cash, and instead called the cops.
