One of the problems with exposing people on the internet is that they resort in a myriad of tactics that are very typical from my experience. One of them is to pretend to be the victim. At times, they really feel they are. I have had several occasions where the person we are suspect of (sometimes only asking questions does this) will make a group defending themselves and claiming to be another victim of ours. No doubt we have enemies among those we expose. We expect that.
“For the record”, we like it.
A source came to the paper telling us Pam Barry formerly of the Gettysburg Ghost Exchange utterly sold there merchandise and then had refused to pay the vendor back. The anonymous source went on to state the following. The very same things have been reported in prior articles and social engagements. People have reported they to have donated items for there so called bash events and later came to find out, the items ended up on there own beds?
All in all people are now coming forward to try to warn unsuspecting people, that they need to be careful with whom they are dealing business with.
Keep in mind those so called charity events, were all events that were allegedly for charity types, such as Wounded Warriors, Kids with cancer and much more. On the Barry’s web pages, they stated and had organized the events to read that all proceeds, were to go to the individual charities, but it had done the opposite and ended up apparently paying for may other things to include daily purchases.
“Well I ended up setting up equipment at their shop to sell. After visiting the shop one afternoon he asked to see what I build. I brought one in and he was all for having them at the shop. At the beginning it started out with a flat $40 for him. All business was talked with Barry, Pam had zero dealings. After I began to out sell their current equipment pet Alan, Barry insisted that everyone with equipment there gave half of the sale to him. Not happy with this I continued to stay to try to gain exposure. I would frequently drive new equipment down to the Lookout house, mind you they made very clear they owned it.
“This was established after asking about different items in the home. I would always get a story of how they got it here and some crazy backstory to it. Anyway, one weekend I dropped 4 pieces of equipment off at the lookout house. I eventually saw money for 1 of the items sold. Then one was sold at the shop and I just so happen to be there so I got cash for it. Weeks went by and I never saw anything from the last 2 in his possession. At this point I had heard somethings about them and did some digging. I stumbled upon your articles and became mortified. I decided to drive down to see if the product might just be sitting in the shop. To my horror nothing was there. Barry even had the nerve to ask me when I was going to bring more stuff in because I had nothing there for him to show to customers. I am not the confrontational type so I just said in a week or so. From that point on I knew I was out of $220 which he stole right out from under me.
“I also had to increase my online prices to match what was being charged in his shop. He said this was due to people giving him grief about it being cheaper directly through me. I now see this was just so people would buy it right there on spot so he could take his cut. I was promised they could get my equipment in the hands of Tv stars from Ghost Hunters. Behind the fake smiles and “friendly” acting, these people are out for one thing…Money
