There is a couple here in Connecticut called Family Haunts. They are starting what they call a paranormal school. They claim they will teach people how to become a paranormal investigator. Plus you get to go on a investigation But wait there is more and you get a certificate as well all for the high price of $150.00. Now being local and from the area, I along with others, did some homework and most of what they claim is not proven. Let's start at the top. I asked two other local groups if they ever heard of them and the answer was no. Now if they have the experience within the paranormal community most groups will at least have heard of them. As far as I know there are no degrees any collage gives out saying paranormal investigator trainer. So they did not pay anyone for any education such as a doctor or lawyer who went to school and got a degree.
Now this is right off the interview they did. Here's the link:
Q. Do you do any sort of continuing education to stay up on the latest developments in your field?
A. no not really
So they admitted they do not keep up with the latest developments in the paranormal field. Then why do they think they are fit to teach others. Would you go to a plumber or a doctor to get your car fixed?
They claim they do exorcisms yet I do not see a priest or bishop or even a demonologist listed anywhere.
They claim they been around over 25 years but their Facebook page says is founded in 2001. Um, I am no mathematician but it is 2014 so that is only 13 years.
But wait it gets better click on the link below now they say they have 60 years experience. Really--60 years? Now I am not a doctor, but none of them look so 60 + 25 is 85 years experience. All I can say is WOW! Once again another misleading statement.
They refer to people they help as CUSTOMERS not clients like every other group does. Now being a customer means you pay right? They even respond to when asked why should they get hired. Sorry we are called, not hired. There reply is even more outrageous. They say cause there the best. Really? There is not one group who is the best in this field, period. We all do things a little differently.
They also say they do land clearing. I was unable to find anything under the BBB or Department of Consumer Protection. Not even in the yellow pages listed under the name Family Haunts Land Clearing.
They have a photo of what they call a shadow figure and they say is was taken in a hallway. They said there was nothing in front of it. Well sorry when another investigator blew it up once again proven this was false.
They do not have a web page for anyone to look them up. Now just about every group and person in the field has a web page so people can do their homework on them.
So let's ask ourselves some questions. What qualifies them to teach anyone let alone charge $150.00? They admitted they do not keep up with the field. They call clients customers. They claim the following: land clearing, exorcisms, have a total of over 85 in the field. And they get hired.
Now anyone can easily see some of their statements are so far out there and none can be proven. Hopefully others see what their true goal is: $$$$. If you want to learn you can for FREE--just contact any local paranormal group and they would be more than happy to teach them anything you want to know. The paranormal is about helping people not making money
