"The 'Snake Summons' spell originated in India and is often illicitly used today by wizards who are called by the Muggle moniker, 'Snake Charmers.'"
—History of the Snake Summons Spell, Cast-a-Spell handbook[1]
A Snake Charmer is a name used by Muggles to describe a witch or wizard who travels from place-to-place performing magic with snakes. They often illegally use the Snake Summons Spell in their work.

As their work is illicit for breaking the International Statute of Wizarding Secrecy, the Indian Ministry of Magic presumably punish them for their profession.

Some Snake Charmers also work by enchanting a rope to move as though it were a snake. One such charmer visited the Leaky Cauldron during the summer of 1993.
