If believe you are experiencing paranormal activity and find yourself looking for help from a paranormal investigation group. Here are a few things to look for during your search.
First and foremost, I would make sure any of the groups you are considering do their investigations FREE of charge. Charging for ghost hunting is always a red-flag period. Secondly, look for words like “certified”. Nobody has the authority to classify a para-group “certified”. Paranormal investigating and ghost hunting do not have a governing body to disperse such certification. This is not to say an individual or group can’t have certification in videography, photography, audio production, and/or other relevant education.
Web presence is always a good way to determine which groups are serious about their intentions. A group should have it’s philosophy and approach laid out for all to see. They should have information on the types of tools that are used and their respective uses. It is always a good sign to see a member page with images as well as brief descriptions to give the client a chance to understand who they may be contacting. Details on how the group handles new members such as background checks, drug tests, etc. I personally would stay away from web pages that are hosted free of charge on advertisement sites. If they can’t invest in a web presence, how much are they going to invest in you, the client…
I realize this list is minimal in size but it should give you a good place to start in your search for a paranormal group.
