Has anyone ever caught anyone faking paranormal phenomena? I'm not talking about peoples opinions of dodgy mediums, but actually catching someone red handed throwing an object etc.

Since I've been with NGI there was almost certainly a case of a guest 'throwing a stone' at the Keep, but that is all I have experienced.

Maybe Kris Wayne .. nothing to me

A pillow throwing incident at the Fleece sometime last year with a Most Haunted style reaction to go with it - note to the accused : Make sure everyone else in the room isn't looking directly at you when you do it - look around first! :mrgreen:

depends what you mean by caught red handed.

Have I suspected someone of faking something or seen them doing so but have no evidence to back myself up with? Yes.

Will I do anyhting about it? not if it remains an isolated incident.

Was it a guest, the owner of a venue or a team member?

Mark good questions but you say not involving a medium? why not?
there are many fake ones about and this also could lead to bad press for that certain team. Yes I have witnesses stone throwing and i have witness "Mediums" going in some sort of trans and looking Pretty stupid. We use Infra Red Camera's and lap tops hooked up so hopefully we would be able to see if someone was doing that. Good Question like!

I'm fully aware that there are 'dodgy mediums' out there. Why I phrased my question like I did is that I wanted to know if people had been caught 'physically' faking phenomenon. When a medium is suspected of faking it, it is usually a lot more of a grey area than if someone was caught throwing a rock.

That's what I though. I always wonder why people choose to fake the dirty stuff.

I dont wonder bout that cos its fuckin obvious hehehehehe!
I do wonder why people fake paranoraml activity though, the ones who keep it up over a period of time etc, I dont mean mediums and the like.I know commercially it can be very viable for a museum/hotel etc to have a 'haunted' reputation but the other stuff being faked is very interesting

I think the reasons behind any sort of fakery over a period of time has to fall into either -
financial, publicity, a joke that gets out of hand, or to reinforce someone's viewpoint.

'attention' is a thing which is often bandied about regarding people who 'often' get ghosty stuff

I lumped that together with publicity but I suppose they're different. I think attention is probably the most widespread reason in my opinion.

I meant more the kid who constantly has imaginary friends and polt activity being described as wanting attention rather than the publicity thing, they might not get any publicity from it etc but get attention in other ways
