A few people who I respect in the field have been attacked for calling out a supposed ghost photo. The "paranormal investigator" who presented it as real evidence hosts a radio show and even charges for classes in ghost hunting "certification". (Toilet paper has the same validity as these certificates.) When some detected the b.s., they did some research (you know, like REAL paranormal investigators are supposed to do!) and found that the ghostly WWII soldier in the picture is an authentic phone app. So instead of showing an ounce of remorse or regret, the guy who presented it is instead attacking the credibility of those who called him out.
My paranormal friends list is much shorter today because it included some who supported this person either by liking the fraudulent picture or supporting his radio show. It's one thing when people cling to orb photos out of ignorance or inexperience, but ghost apps are deliberate fraud. They are created with the intent to fool others. To be fair, it's not the ghost apps themselves that are the problem. I can see how fun it can be to create such pictures for entertainment. But when so-called "investigators" use them to intentionally deceive others (including clients) into thinking they caught something truly paranormal, that is overt, malicious fraud. As I've said before, I don't have any respect for those who present, excuse, or "authenticate" such "evidence".
If you claim to be a paranormal investigator, please do some actual investigating before declaring ghost pictures as paranormal. Be aware that there are a lot of these apps out there and they are constantly being updated to include new "ghosts". Also be aware that sometimes honest clients have been fooled by friends or family using these apps in pranks. It's up to us, as investigators, to check the validity of such (actually, ANY) pictures when they are presented to us.
Does the ghost in the photo below look familiar? If so, it's not because he is haunting several locations from his life, it's because he's a phone app. So if you see a picture with this "ghost" in it, you know it's a fake and any the team or investigator who posts it a "evidence"is not reliable.
Thank you to Debunk Paranormal for sharing this picture with me. http://wwps.grou.ps/home
