FOR THOSE WHO MISSED MY SHOW TONIGHT YOU MISSED A HUGE SURPRISE! John Zaffis, of Haunted Collector and many more shows, our special guest!
Auction, storage and collectors shows are all the rage right now. You can’t hit channel up or down more than five times without hitting a show like American Pickers, Pawn Stars, Storage Wars, Auction Hunters or a hundred different other knockoffs and imitators. Some of them are good, some ridiculous and a few are less reality and more like a cross between Antiques Roadshow and Jersey Shore – and then there’s ‘Haunted Collector’ on Syfy. John Zaffis visits potentially haunted houses, finds the objects that are causing trouble in each house and takes them to his paranormal museum in New England. Problem is, it doesn’t appear that Zaffis actually pays for these items. Is Syfy airing a television show where a man with some knowledge of antiques is taking valuable items from scared dupes? Here’s how the scam works – John Zaffis visits a potentially ‘haunted’ home and chats with the homeowners about their issues. Some of these people are incredibly vulnerable. In the episode I watched, there ...
yes, same ones! And do you know who John Zaffis is? They are his aunt/uncle. Neat people
And yet actual investigators like John Zaffis get their shows cancelled? Makes no sense to me.
Woth the godfather of paranormal John zaffis
We have interviews with John Zaffis , Adam Berry , and Joe Chin at
The Godfather of the Paranormal: John Zaffis -- Behind the Scenes of the Haunted Collector - Read this article here:
Good morning everyone. I just want to say thank you to everyone who sends me their photos to analyze for the paranormal. But please, do not get upset with me when I tell you it is not a ghost. Especially with orb photos. I have been doing this for years and have learned from some of the best people in the field; Chip Coffey, John Zaffis, and Loyd Auerbach. I use what they taught me and give you my opinion so please do not be upset when I debunk a photo, especially when you ask me my opinion. Good friend of mine Wayne Miracle and I actually had a talk about this not too long ago and I think he agrees. Thanks for being on the same page as me Wayne.

Hello again, friends of the paranormal, this is Tim with some more posts about demonology. I am NOT a demonologist, nor do I profess to know everything about this subject. Most, if not all, of my posts will be excerpts from the book, SHADOWS OF THE DARK, by John Zaffis and Brian McIntyre. As I continue to study and learn, I will post as I go. Demonology is the general study of the hierarchy of evil, negative intelligences, and their direct attributes, missions, personalities, rankings, powers, and direct interferences in human lives. This field of research has been pushed to the back burner of conventional thought, but it will never be dismissed because it a real area of study, regardless of how subtle these energies may be. More to follow. (Tim)

Thoughts on improving the image of ghost hunting community: 1. Field-wide ban of "Affliction" style shirts. John Zaffis wears them now, guys. That should be saying something. 2. That goatee has gotta go. I hear metal beards are in. Mix it up. 3. If you're going to cross your arms in team photos, you might as well just flex. We all know you want to. Just do it.
Here is a pic of one of the red triangles that I sent to John Zaffis's team, that they feel is an energy shield...

I can't believe I was on tonight's episode of Haunted Collector with John Zaffis. It was a stunning honor and I had a great time doing it. Hopefully that face didn't scare anyone, lol. But seriously it is about our friends at the Hulbert House and this episode was a big home run for them. No BS this place is everything it was portrayed to be and more.Hopefully this helps them out through these rough times. Whether it be a historic location or a private residence - this is the level of dedication and commitment R.I.P. brings to its clients. When we say we are here to help it is not just empty words!
