Yes, there are non-Christian scam artists also 

From Chosun:

"Miracle-working" Buddhist Priestess Busted for Fraud

A 55-year-old married woman identified by her last name Lee, who was concerned by her deteriorating health, traveled to a temple in the city of Goyang, Gyeonggi province after hearing that there was a "miraculous" Buddhist priestess there. Upon meeting the priestess told Lee, "This is a medicine that I have made, if you drink it your ailments will all be made better," and passed her a paper cup. The woman forked over W500,000 (US$1=W961) and drank the elixir. Afterwards Lee contracted food poisoning as well as a skin disease which sent her to the hospital. Later she learned that the "special potion" was in fact the water that had stagnated under a dead body.

For four years this priestess perpetrated such bizarre acts but has found herself in handcuffs. The Ilsan police department has decided to apply for an arrest warrant for the 41-year-old Buddhist nun from Hwangryong temple identified as Chung for allegedly defrauding 13 individuals out of some W23 million through various means including selling them fake foxtails.

Chung's actions were truly eccentric: telling the believers that if they placed the foxtails -- which she sold for between W1 million and W3 million -- in their undergarments it would act as a good luck charm, as well as selling the cadaver juice for W5 million per glass. Police said, "As reports continue to pour in, it is likely that the scope of the investigation will grow substantially."
