Beware the Scam Artist #ParaScammers
Earlier this week, I blogged about the unfortunate events that occurred during the “A Haunting in Tombstone” event. (See “Carol Malone Bombs in Tombstone” https://thehauntedlibrarian.com/2015/05/03/carol-malone-bombs-in-tombstone/) Well, actually, the non-event. Carol Malone scammed many, many people out of their money by promising an incredible paranormal event packed with guest speakers, vendors, and investigations. Ms. Malone showed up to disappointed crowds and ran for the hills—right after she was cited for failing to pay for services rendered. Unfortunately, Ms. Malone is not the only one who has illegally profited from the para community. It’s time for us to join in solidarity and to condemn these actions.
John Albrecht, Jr. penned an excellent article, http://www.examiner.com/article/carol-malone-aka-london-knight-scams-haunted-historic-town-arizona. I encourage you to read it. John also posted a YouTube video. It’s worth viewing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9dE-KbISLJY#t=25.
Something positive did arise from this. Watch this segment and see how people made the best of the travesty and salvaged investigations. https://www.facebook.com/HuffParanormal/videos/vb.418566248207499/896034383794014/?type=2&theater
So what should you do? Spread the word. Keep people like Carol Malone out of our community. Do due diligence. There are some fabulous and credible entertainment companies out there. Support the community. And finally, associate with positive people. Let’s kick the negativity out of the paranormal community.
