Not all are fakes.  I recall a story of a man who read palms.  He said he
started while in school to earn a little money.  He became a believer when
the readings he gave appeared to be true (i.e. - his customers claimed
what he told them was accurate).  However, the Amazing Randy convinced him
otherwise by doing the following.  The Amazing Randy instructed him to
read a person's palm as he would normally do, but tell the customer the
exact opposite.  To this guys surprise, all of his customers were equally
amazed at the accuracy of his readings.
