A British psychic named Chris Date, who claims that he can converse with the dead, was accused of setting up fictitious spirits for a ghost tour. Also known as the Knight Guider, Date organised a ghost hunt at the Halfway Hotel in Llanelli, South Wales, which was believed to be frequented by spirits.
According to the reports, Date entered the hotel stables with 14 people who were curious about astrology, tarot, numerology, and other forms of divination. These individuals actually paid for the experience. At one point during the tour, the allegedly bogus psychic asked the supposed spirits to respond in a query by knocking twice.
Based from the statements of the hotel owner, Paul Francis, the supposed spook did as commanded, but one of the hunters and a member of the tour personnel decided to wait around to verify if someone really came down from the attic where the knocking was coming from. According his interview with the Telegraph, a guy jumped down after twenty minutes and their staff took the guy and threw him out.
This man from the attic said that he is homeless. He also asserted that he had nothing to do with the frightening sounds. However, another tour guest named Mike Grimble suspiciously reported to the Daily Mail that the guy from the attic was actually wearing expensive designer jeans.
This served as basis for Francis to believe that the homeless man was planted by Date. He noted to the Daily Mail that he provided the hotel keys to Date at around 4 pm so he could set up. Francis claimed that Date used this span of time to put the man in the attic.
As expected, Date asserted that he had nothing to do with the bogus spiritual practice. He reasoned that it was just a ghost tour and he did not promise any form of mediumship. He insisted that it was merely an enjoyable ghost tour around the infamous accommodation.
