Four ghost scam defendants were sentenced to jail time today, concluding the the first case of its kind to go to trial in the country.

It is easier to claim it is paranormal than taking the hard route and find out what really happened.

Look at Ghost Adventures and Taps ( Ghost Hunters ).....Finding Bigfoot, Psychics, etc,etc,etc.....

Not saying this to be mean, but when it comes to guillible people, the " Paranormal " has the most targets.

I think any of them making money off of this, claiming they " know it is real" and telling people lies should all be tried for fraud.

How do you go from people who threaten others into giving up jewelry and money to fortune tellers?

Whatever they used as a tool to threaten others into surrendering wealth is unimportant, they did steal from these people under threat... They deserve their place in the big house.

My posts consist of my opinions, beliefs, and experiences, feel free to disagree in a respectful manner.

I have a right to my beleifs, just as you have a right to not agree with them.

So long as we respect each other's beliefs, we won't have a single problem.
