PHILADELPHIA (AP) _ Fortune-telling isn't in the cards any longer in Philadelphia.

City inspectors have begun shutting down psychics, astrologers
and tarot card readers under a Pennsylvania law that bans fortune-telling for profit.

The law has been on the books for more than 30 years, but
Philadelphia officials say they only found out about it a few days
ago, when police told them.

Inspectors have closed 16 shops since Tuesday, and officials say
more closings will be coming.

No one has been arrested or fined -- but the city warns that
will change if anyone tries to return to the fortune-telling
business.
