A warning has been going around the ghost hunting groups online this week that I think is worth mentioning. Basically, a guy asked a group of ghost hunters to come out to his home to investigate. When they got there, he took out a gun and threatened them. Luckily, no one got hurt.
Ghost hunters need to be extremely careful when dealing with people they don’t know. It’s usually a good idea to take clients through referrals. Sometimes, though, people do call groups out of the blue and genuinely need help. If a stranger calls and wants your group to come out, at least do a basic background check on the individual.
There are a lot of dangerous people out there and running into them is one of the risks that can be prevented with a little bit of effort. Please be careful if you are going to go to a strangers house for an investigation and take every possible precaution. Your life could depend on it.
