Halloween will be different for many this year and could have devastating effects for lots of folk all over the world and this is one of the consequences of the credit crunch.
Traditionally this is the one night in the year when ghosts, ghoulies and things that go bump in the night come out and play havoc with the living. Such spirits are only kept at bay by Psychics.
World renowned 'Ghost Whisperer', Derek Accora told In Seine News;
"The credit crunch is affecting us all, I know, but it does not cost any money for a ghost to possess someone; they don't do money! However, to get them to leave does take some expert knowledge and expensive equipment. It takes years of training before you can catch one; I've got hundreds of them in jars in my cellar!" he said.
"The problem we face is that many of our clients have not paid for our services yet and we are owed thousands of pounds. Yes, we do give them six months to pay to make sure the spectre has well and truly disappeared, but there are some buggers who don't pay, using the excuse that there is still evidence of paranormal activity - I'll tell you what; the only evidence of paranormal activity for some is to actually open up their wallets! Scottish ones tend to be the worst."
"We from the World Organisation of Psychic Investigators (WOOPI) want to issue an ultimatum to those clients who have not paid up after the six months; if they don't cough-up by 5:00pm on 31st October - better known as HALLOWEEN, these misers will be REPOSSESSED! You see there are millions of jars of ghosts in the hands of Parapsychologists worldwide and we can let them out of their jars to plague at will."
Film star, Woopi Goldberg wishes to make it crystal clear that although she appeared in the film, 'Ghost', she is in no way connected to the organisation.
