BOSTON, Jan. 23 (UPI) -- Seven people accused of practicing as psychics without the proper documentation have been summoned to appear before the Boston Licensing Board, officials said

Local psychics are required to show documentation proving they are registered voters, have not been convicted of state or federal crimes and have permission from their landlords to operate their businesses.

Tremont Tearoom, Angela Mitchell Palm and Card, Ann Psychic Readings, Spiritual Energy Readings by Theresa, Stacy's Palm and Tarot, Psychic Readings by Crystal and Brighton Psychic were issued citations and the proprietors are scheduled to appear before the board Tuesday, the Boston Herald reported Monday.

"We recently discovered the oversight, and we're working on it," said Alex Palermo, owner of the Tremont Tearoom.

The Herald said officials from the other businesses could not be reached for comment.
