A fortune teller in Japan has been ordered to pay another woman a total of 90 million yen (£640,000) after she brainwashed her into going into the sex trade to pay off her own debts.
According to local media reports, Tokyo District Court ordered the money be paid after the fortune teller - who hasn't been identified - convinced the woman that she owed her money and ordered her to become a prostitute to pay it off.
The seer is said to have reportedly convinced her victim to move into an apartment that she owned, and then would pocket her earnings.
The psychic and the victim appeared to have continued under this arrangement from 2011 to 2013, before the woman eventually informed the authorities.
