Doesn't that explain enough?
It is hard for me to grasp that people actually believe these things, and many do.People buy them.......
I think it should be illegal myself.
There was a attempt at a scam here with a haunted item, luckily the OP trusted me thinking I would be dis-honest, and he was reported, and found out.
I was offered up to $5000.00 to help with the scam, he had all ready had offers of $1,000.00, and he figured with a story on a popular paranormal site, with a resident skeptic seeing it to be true ( sent to me in mail, etc. ) the price would go up....
There were a lot of members here that believed him, and actually were mad at me for being so " harsh " with him in the topic.....
It bothers me to see any type of lying and fraud, especially using the " paranormal " community as prey.......It is a easier target un-fortunatley, and is one of the reasons I try to help show facts in topics here, and in the real life world.
If something is claimed to be haunted / paranormal, please consider the reality of this and research, research, research......If there is a price tag on it, I 100% guarantee it is a scam.
cough, cough....Psychics also
I actually have some "haunted" items.
I get mine via private sales thru collectors of such.
Estate liquidations down in New Orleans ,and so forth.
A have a couple of items that have done some very funky things
A few were pricey, but nothing up near 5000$,or even 3000$.
I bought some for their histories,some because they were interesting,and some because they were just kind of cool.
None we dolls .
At least 2 are kind of scary,and I was afraid to have one in the house at first,because of its alleged history.
They're the ones that occasionally,"do" things.
I also have a couple of rings that do some interesting stuff.
These things exisit,but they are far more rare than haunted items on eBay.
Buyer beware .
