Ghosts contact the Living via cellphones

by Alexi

Just caught the following article, courtesy of Jane Hamilton of The Sun newspaper in the UK:

GHOSTS are trying to make contact with living friends using mobile phones, a paranormal expert claims.
The number of mystery calls to mobiles attributed to spooks has rocketed by 43 per cent in the last four years, a study found.

Spectre investigator Phil Hayes from Paranormal Research UK believes a third of all hauntings are now through mobile phones.

The calls often feature heavy static and the voice sounds faint and distant, he revealed. Nine in ten show as "withheld number" or "000000000000" on caller ID.

Statistics show two thirds of all paranormal phenomena feature sounds, with just 20 per cent being actual sightings of ghosts and 15 per cent based on smell.

Around half of audible hauntings were captured on voice recorders by specialist spook hunters, with eight per cent coming through TV or radio.

New research shows one in three Brits claim to have seen an apparition in a photo or captured paranormal footage on their mobile.

The study by Tesco Mobile revealed Paranormal Research UK have seen a 70 per cent upsurge in paranormal evidence in the last year due to people using their phones.

More than half of Brits claimed they would try to capture a sighting of a ghost — but one in five admitted they would be terrified and run away.

Three in five people say they know someone who has experienced paranormal activity, with half having felt an unexplained shiver down the spine when entering a room.

Phil Hayes said: "There is evidence to suggest that ghosts can use phones to communicate, with reports of people receiving phone calls from deceased relatives."

Lance Batchelor, CEO of Tesco Mobile said: "We'd recommend those brave enough to capture any spooky sightings should MMS or email their pics to the paranormal society for investigation.

"Keep your camera phone on the highest quality resolution setting and use the recorder to capture the noise of any spectral sounds."

Harvey Milk's Ghost

by Mike B.

The ghost of assassinated San Francisco, California city supervisor Harvey Milk haunts the site of the camera store he once owned, according to moviemaker Gus Van Sant.

The director claims that Milk's spirit turned up on the set of the film, when Van Sant and his stars Sean Penn and James Franco recreated the Castro Camera Shop in the gift store the place has become in the 30 years since the gay public official's murder.

Unfortunately, the filmmaker was too busy to notice the spook.

He explains, "The gift store owners were very into the legacy of the store and willing to let us close their shop down and move our set in. They had a mural of Harvey Milk.

"During a shot at night there was a take where we were using most of the room and there were three or four actors in the scene. Some people were sitting on the sofa which was outside of the shot and during one of the takes somebody walked in from outside and sat down on the sofa during the shot.

"After the shot was over and I yelled 'Cut,' he apparently got up and walked out. The actors were like, 'Did you see that guy?' I didn't see anybody, but they kept describing Harvey, so I figure it was the ghost of Harvey walking into the store for a brief second."

My haunted experience

by Sneha
(Delhi, U.P, India)

Hi!I am Sneha and I am from India. I believe in Ghost and spirits and I have seen them. I lived in an Apartment that is believed to be haunted. I heard noises and strange voices, Although I am a kid but I want to share my story with everyone. People said that a young lady and her children were found murdered there. Her children didn't harm anybody but her mother was very dangerous. She tried to harm me very much. The bread was thrown automatically, my toys were broken and... I can't tell my story because I am scared, but I feel she is watching me.
