Miss Cleo and Psychic Readers Network are at odds.

In the middle of the 1990s, Harris joined the Psychic Readers Network as Cleo. On-screen, she played a psychic who claimed to be a shaman from Jamaica.

She told people to call the charge-by-the-minute number to get their fortunes told. This phrase, “The cards never lie,” became her catchphrase.

In 1999, North Carolina filed a lawsuit against Access Resource Services, which was doing business as Psychic Readers Network. Arkansas, Florida, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Indiana were among the next states to join.

In 2002, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) said that Steven Fader and Peter Stotz, who owned Access Resource Services and promoted Harris, used misleading advertising, billing, and collection practices.

The FTC found that the Psychic Readers Network did offer free readings, but customers who called a toll-free number were sent to a 900 number and charged $4.99 per minute. The Washington Post says that nearly 6 million people who made the calls were charged an average of $60.

Fader and Stotz reached a deal by letting the customer off the hook for the $500 million debt he owed to the network and by giving $5 million to the FDC. All checks that were not cashed were also sent back to the customers.

Harris wasn’t charged in the lawsuit, but during the many court battles, it became clear that she wasn’t from Jamaica as she said she was. She was born in Los Angeles, and both of her parents were born in the United States.

After her birth information was made public, Harris told The Advocate, “I am who I am.” She also said that she had Jamaican roots.

Harris said this about the doubts about whether or not she was really a psychic: “I’m more like a shaman, an elder in a village who has visions and tells people what to do. The people I work with and teach are my villages.

It looks after this neighborhood. If you sit at my table, you have to learn something, not just what will happen the next day. I also do house blessings and cleansings, as well as weddings for both gay and straight people.”
