Paranormal State’s Ryan Daniel (Denial) Buell is claiming he is sick in what seems to be an attempt to fraud the paranormal public. He refuses to answer specific refund requests even to this very day.
Amy Greenwald has asked repeatedly for her said refund to be issued, but Mr. Buell never replied to her requests. Not until today and this is the type of response given. Instead, he seems to have HIS folks answer to anybody commenting and he has his followers comment to distract from the main issue.
The following referenced screenshots are from Amy Greenwald’s statements made to Buell’s Twitter page. It is clear that his said followers do not care if there are unpaid refunds or not; proving to the world,that his followers, for the most part, are either like-minded scum or just plain bat-shit crazy.
The following Twitter message was relayed by Wendy Rafferty, who supports Buell and his entourage of nonsense. She states, “just let it go”. How does one let a debt owed to them “go” when it was mainly out of callousness or deceit? Perhaps we should ask her if she had money stolen, would she not want it back?
You can see how his people sway the truth by continually telling people he was “sick”. Truth told, he was not too sick to enjoy his lavish beach house, cabin and his jet-ski, as seen in the following picture.The picture is telling the woman to let the simple fact go,that karma can come calling.What does karma have to do with trying to get your money back?
Every one of these events were called a scam, as every one of them took people’s money for events that were never held. No hotels were booked and no said venues were paid for. The Ottawa, Toronto, Halifax, Edmonton, Calgary, Winipeg and Vancouver events were either cancelled or never booked yet tickets were sold.
For a very long time now, a woman, (Amy Greenwald), who lost out on her refund from the famous Ryan Daniel Buell’s event, has wanted her said refund back but Buell being the con-man he seems to be, is still refusing the Twitter messages. His “attack bitches” however, have returned in full force, defending the one-time paranormal legend.
Amy Greenwald has never let up on trying to recover her refund, of which the famous star on A&E “Paranormal State” took during one of his events.
The problem is this: Buell is using his health issues he clams he had during the stated events. What is unclear, is what do health issues have to do with three of his other events?? People including Sergey Pobereznny and others, were alleged to have booked the fraudulent events. In nearly all of the Canadian events, tickets were sold and most, if not all of the ticket holders were out their money.
The latest news reel stated this about the entire Buell fiasco:
“The longtime friend of a celebrity ghost hunter is speaking out about fans’ missing money.This of course,was famed Chip Coffee
A lot of former fans of Ryan Buell were angry that they paid for his lecture tour and never got refunds when it was canceled. One even traveled all the way from Denmark. One of the headliners for Buell’s tour said thousands of dollars are at stake.
Chip Coffey is a well-known psychic and medium who was once part of the cable TV series “Paranormal State” with Buell. Coffey, Buell’s friend, was scheduled to team up with the ghost hunter again for his “Conversations With The Dead Tour.” He said Buell and his team, the Paranormal Research Society based the Raleigh-Durham area, organized the tour and were in charge of all the details.
But it was so unorganized, he had to bail on the United States tour in April, just days before it was supposed to start. “Venues weren’t booked. Airline tickets weren’t booked,” Coffey said.
He said while he had no access to the ticket sales, he knows a lot were sold. “I know that the last accounting I had, with regards to ticket sales for the ‘Conversations with the Dead Tour,’ it was in excess of $80,000.”
That doesn’t include the tickets sold for the seven shows in Canada — all canceled.
Now that Buell canceled the U.S. and Canadian tours, Coffey said he doesn’t understand why
The ghost hunter, (Buell), was featured not once, but twice on a news reel in Raleigh North Carolina. He was also featured on many on-line social sites and papers including the Eye Of The Paranormal and also The Paranormal Herald.
Famed psychic Chip Coffee stated this:
“I’ve been accused of throwing Ryan under the bus. I didn’t throw Ryan under the bus, Ryan stepped in front of the bus and I jumped out of the way. Any smart business person would have done the same thing,” Coffey said.
While neither Buell nor his team has responded to our repeated requests for comment, on Buell’s Facebook page, he posted that health issues forced him to cancel the tour and that PayPal is responsible for ticket refunds.
However, just over the weekend it was posted on Buell’s page that they’re doing their very best to move the refund requests along.
As for Buell’s medical issues, Buell’s fans started out sympathetic after he canceled shows in 2012 claiming he was fighting pancreatic cancer.
Yet, when refunds weren’t given out, we started hearing from them.
In late 2013, when Buell announced he was ready to tour again, he started selling tickets for this year. But none of the shows happened and that’s why Coffey says he feels fans should get their money back.
“I’m not insensitive to the fact that Ryan is sick, I’m not. I pray for him every day. But that has nothing to do with business, pay someone to return the money, find a way to get the people their money back,” Coffey said.

As for PayPal, the company wouldn’t comment on the specifics of any PayPal account, but in general, a rep said, it does not hold any money, it just takes a broker fee.
PayPal has a buyer protection policy and can secure customers a refund only if it is filed within 45 days of purchase. It encourages customers to be cautious of buying from sellers who have delivery times longer than 45 days.
In some cases, Buell fans bought tickets months in advance so many aren’t protected.
For Canada residents, contact the Canadian Anti-Fraud Center on their toll-free line at 1-888-495-8501 or submit a form online.
You can also file a complaint with the NC Attorney General’s Office.
If you’re owed money from one of Buell’s events, let me know on my Facebook page at Troubleshooter Diane Wilson WTVD.
Several ticket holders who are still trying to get refunds, shared with us emails from a PayPal rep which state in part, ” After reviewing your transactions, I can confirm that these payments are in no way held by PayPal as they are still in seller’s PayPal account after your payments were successfully completed on 21st Jan 2014.”
The best advice? Dispute the charge with your credit card; some ticket holders have had success that way.
All in all,we sincerely hope,that folks to this day will get their refunded money back,but it true we are holding our breath on this one.We the paper send our best and most sincerest regards to those folks scammed or taken advantage of from the PRS crew.
