Client Interview Process

Throughout your Ghost Hunting Research and studies, you will learn many different theories and approaches as well as equipment use for conducting an investigation. What I would first like to get into is the aspect of screening your clients prior to an investigation.

Unfortunately, in our line of work (paranormal investigators), there are quite a few people out there just want to give us a call to waste our time for “Friday night kicks” so to speak. Some individuals that call you will sound very sincere in their intentions but truly have a different purpose for us. The problem is that we, as investigators, have to take any notification that we receive very seriously no matter how crazy the situation may sound.

As an investigator, all the calls must be treated with respect and interest to the client. Have them tell you what they are experiencing in their residence, listen and take notes on all of this. What you learn in the beginning will play a major role in their story when it comes to the interview process later. Like I have said before, you will have some that just want you there for entertainment. Most of us provide a free service so this is cheap entertainment for quite a few people while some are just curious. After you have finished listening to their situation, you need to set up an interview or “preliminary investigation”, to go into further detail about their situation. This is also a great way to see if their stories match up to what you already recorded. I know this may sound harsh but I assure you that there are some out there that will use you. We all work to hard with our research for us to be used in this way.

Before the interview process, you will need to take a few things with you. You will need a recorder or notebook of some kind, a liability document for them to sign, paperwork to give them that has a detailed description as to what your intentions are and what you will be using as far as equipment in their residence. I would advise bringing someone else to recorder data and take notes of the area while the interview is in progress. Have them note the client’s moments and facial expressions to your questions, as these will be key as to their credibility. Here are a few questions that you can ask the client during the interview. Always ask their permission to be recorded on tape or film prior to the interview. Answers to these questions can help you decide what are real, possible hallucinations or flat out lies.

How long have you lived here? Describe what you have seen? Do you hear voices? Have you done any recent remodeling to the residence? Have you had any loved ones that have passed recently? How many children do you have and what ages? (Key in poltergeist activity.) Are you or anyone that lives in this residence taking medication of any kind? If yes, what? Does anyone use alcohol? If so, how much?

After the interview process is complete, you and your group need to have the client take you around the residence and show you where they have experienced the most activity.

Note Everything unusual in the area as well as where objects are placed and how the house is maintained. Are the clients clean and organized? If they are having objects disappear, and they appear to be organized, then this adds further possibilities to their credibility.

When the preliminary investigation is complete and you have all of your data you will need to regroup with your team and discuss your true feelings of the client and what your approach is going to be. This should never be discussed in the presence of the client. You may need to do some background research of the area and do not be shy about asking the homeowner if they have an abstract of the residence. This will help you tremendously in research and will give you a few names and backgrounds as well. You want to research the land that the residence or building stands on. Just because the house may be haunted does not necessarily mean the haunting is tied to the house itself. The haunting may be tied to the land and the homeowner may not be aware of this. If after this process is complete and your group as a whole feels that this may be a hoax, then you need to pull out of the situation as gracefully as possible. This may be a very hard decision but you will know after the interview process and data collected if it is a possible hoax. It would be your call as to whether a full investigation is needed or not.

Try and keep in mind that this is your time and that your time is valuable.
