According to sources, the event was cancelled after tickets were allegedly purchased. Sound familiar? It should.

At 19 years old, Ryan Buell formed the famous “Paranormal Research Society” at Penn State University. “Paranormal State” was the very successful television series that followed Ryan through his studies and cases of the Paranormal. It was an instant sensation and aired on a major network from 2007 to 2011.
He worked with very famous people in the business from Chip Coffey to Lorainne Warren. A very successful career led to a world wide tour. I along with hundreds of thousands were very excited to purchase tickets. The tour “Talking With The Dead” was the hottest ticket in the paranormal.
The following links were events he either didn’t schedule or book,another wards the events never happened, But Buell did allegedly take their money..
Dedicated fans paid over $400 to get VIP tickets to the event. People drove six hours to arrive. Books and webinars were paid for and promised. Suddenly, everything came to a screeching halt. Fans soon found out that there would be no events, there would be no books delivered and there would be no webinars. Ryan Buell explained that he had cancer and everything was cancelled.What he did not explain,was that he would be keeping peoples money.

Please keep in mind that Ryan Buell claimed to of been ill, terminally ill with pancreatic cancer.It is important to know that this type of illness has a 4 percent survival rate.
Fans were patient and understanding because everything would surely be rescheduled! The hundreds of thousands of dollars would be refunded. Not only was it not rescheduled, nothing was refunded. Committed fans began to question him. No answer. There were several working with Buell that did answer.
One was Chip Coffey, famous psychic-medium scheduled for the tour that had this to say as he dropped out of the tour before it began: “The event is not being properly managed. There was more than $800,000 in ticket sales and I never received a dime. I will continue to pray for Ryan but business is business. If fans are owed money, Ryan should return it.”
Another guest speaker on Ryan’s tour, Michelle Belanger, also featured on Paranormal State withdrew from the tour as well. She stated “ I have no plane tickets, no hotel reservations, no idea what the plan is supposed to be. That’s not for lack of asking”.
Ryan Buell claims that his company, Paranormal Research Society never received any of the ticket money and that PayPal is responsible for refunds. A Paypal rep said they don’t hold any money, they just take a broker’s fee. They stated that they have a buyer protection policy and can secure customer refunds ONLY if it is filed within 45 days of purchase.
