Who are we?
We hope you enjoy visiting our website and will return regularly as we add new information. We also invite you to participate in our discussions about ghost hunting and paranormal phenomena at our Discussion Board. It's easy to register and become a member, and it's free!What do we do?
We investigate and document reports of ghosts, hauntings and paranormal activity in South Carolina using scientific methods and electronic equipment to rule out natural causes for reported phenomena. Our mission is twofold: Collect verifiable scientifically based evidence of the survival of the human personality after death while helping people understand and cope with possible paranormal activity in their homes or businesses before and after an investigation. We use the most up-to-date video, audio and surveillance equipment to document our investigations, and we constantly exchange ideas and information with other nationally recognized paranormal investigation teams in a continuing effort to improve our investigation techniques and remain at the forefront of paranormal research.Where do we investigate?
We offer our investigation services in South Carolina only. We offer our services free of charge to anyone in this area who is in need of a scientifically oriented paranormal investigation conducted by reputable, experienced researchers who always keep the homeowner's or business owner's concerns and best interests in mind.Do we charge for our services?
We do NOT charge for our investigation services. An overwhelming majority of reputable paranormal investigation teams across the country believe that it is highly unethical for any person or persons to charge for a paranormal investigation or to request a fee to supposedly "banish" or "exorcise" alleged "ghosts" or "spirits" or "dispose" of an alleged "haunting". We wholeheartedly agree. If you are experiencing possible paranormal activity in your home or business, we recommend that you avoid contacting anyone who claims to be able to terminate alleged paranormal activity in return for a monetary fee.How do we fund our research?
All of our equipment, travel and website expenses are privately funded by our individual team members. To help offset our costs, we do sell SCPRAI merchandise in our online shop. And in the near future we hope to offer DVD documentaries of select investigations. Public donations to help fund our research are welcomed and appreciated.Do we post investigation results on our website?
We always post the results of our public location investigations (cemeteries, Civil War battlefields, hotels, bed & breakfasts, etc.) on our website for public scrutiny. We believe it's important for the general public to have access to this information so people can judge the validity of our research methods and results while also learning from our experiences. Beware of "paranormal investigators" who do not publicly publish the results of their "investigations".
If you have an unusual photo, audio recording, video recording or personal experience which might be paranormal in nature and would like to share it with others who are interested in paranormal phenomena, we can evaluate your evidence for possible posting on our website. Contact us if you'd like us to consider your digital submissions (digital photos, digitally scanned photos, digital audio files, digital video files, etc.).We also accept South Carolina ghost stories and personal paranormal experiences for possible posting on our website. Contact us if you'd like us to consider your South Carolina ghost story or personal paranormal experience.
