Chad had no other options but to watch this NEW ENGLAND based paranormal investigation group founder walk off with the images he created for her organization. His experiences with this organization founder aren’t unique, but still worth the listen.


Chad Ashworth is an unemployed graphic art(s) designer who agreed to do fee-based work for the leader of a NEW ENGLAND based paranormal investigation organization, but wouldn’t you know it?  You probably already guessed – the organization leader decided they didn’t want to pay Chad for the work he had done.  They kept the non-scalable “proof” images and displayed them proudly on their website, as their own, while promising payment for services rendered.  But weeks turned into months, and repetitive requests for payment, by Chad, were answered to with cries of poverty by the organization leader.   Being unemployed and without the means to seek legal options to recover the fees for services rendered, Chad had no choice but to walk away from the situation with a weak agreement that since he can’t force the organization to stop displaying the non-scalable images he gave them as “proofs”, he’ll surrender his request for payment so long as they give him visible credit.

Nothing like having your arm twisted into an agreement you have no choice but to accept, right?  The entire situation, as Chad so plainly stated, “left a bad taste in [my] mouth”.

John Brightman tells us about his connection to the Rose Island Lighthouse, and how one specific NEW ENGLAND based organization left an impression so negative it caused the Lighthouse Staff to change its policies on how teams are allowed to book investigation time, and under what conditions they will be allowed to do so.


With nearly a decade of paranormal investigation experience under his belt, John Brightman leads the New England Paranormal Research organization.

In this “Fraud in Paranormal” episode, John speaks with Maine Ghost Hunters about his knowledge of, and personal experience with, the Rose Island Lighthouse in Rhode Island, and how much things have changed since the location was visited, and investigated by, a New England based organization.  If you’ve been to the Rose Island Lighthouse for a paranormal investigation before, and have noticed things have changed since your last visit, you can learn why by listening to this episode.  John highlights the exact reasons why we should all be on our best behavior while conducting business at client locations.  Exhibiting a high level of respect for your own organization is one thing, but if teams don’t have that aspect of “positive behavior” on their mind(s) they should at least have the consideration of the location, itself, the staff/owners they deal with, and if the location is public, any peer groups which may wish to investigate in the future.  John’s interview highlights the very philosophy behind “everything we, as paranormal investigators, do impacts everyone else involved in the field of paranormal”.

Maine Ghost Hunters doesn’t think teams like the one who left a legacy of distrust for the rest of us to follow in the footsteps of,  at the Rose Island Lighthouse, should be representative factors in the field of paranormal.  Yet, by their mere presence in paranormal, they are.  And for this, we all pay the price.

CJ Moschetto is a paranormal investigation team leader with a criminal history. He’s trying his best to find where he fits in within the field of paranormal, and he’s telling his story – one open and honest experience after the next. Thank You CJ!


We’re proud to introduce our audience to a fellow New England based Paranormal Investigation Team Leader, based out of Massachusetts.  A guy who’s been to the dark side and back. A guy who takes life day by day, who’s as honest with himself about his past life experience as he is with the world.  A guy we’re proud to call a Friend of Maine Ghost Hunters.  His name is CJ Moschetto and he runs E.N.E.M.I – Eastern New England Metaphysical Investigations.

CJ was kind enough to speak openly and candidly about what it’s like to be a paranormal investigator with a criminal history.  He speaks about the challenges of getting involved in paranormal in a way that is respectful to the field, and peers within the community of paranormal.  And he speaks very honestly about trying to establish himself within the community of paranormal in a responsible and compassionate way – expressing the wisdom to understand that not everyone will be accepting of his role as quickly as he would like, but that’s a process he’s willing to work through at the terms set forth by his peers, because paranormal demands that type of respect and protection from all of us.

CJ is an inspiration and we’re so incredibly blessed he offered us this opportunity to interview him.
