The ads for TV psychic "Miss Cleo" say that anyone 18 or older can call her and learn about their future. But when 9-year-old Ashley Busch called the hotline, operators let the young girl talk for 20 minutes. After Ashley's mother received the phone bill she tried to refute the ads claim and get her money back, but the company refused to listen. KWCH-TV put the psychic's hotline to the test, and found that two out of five operators agreed to let 10-year-old children talk on the hotline, well aware of their age.
