BEWARE: Radio Ad Scam!

Recently, The Paranormal Source, Inc. paid a significant sum of money to an individual with a Paranormal Radio Podcast to produce a 60 & 30 second commercial for our non-profit corporation. This individual did not deliver the advertisement as ordered, and is refusing to refund us the money we paid. We will be meeting with this person and their counsel in court as soon as the papers to reclaim the funds have been filed.

Members of our team donated out of their own pockets to help pay the fee, and are now left with nothing to show for it. Our conscience and integrity requires us to warn other individuals and teams to beware should you be approached to advertise on ANY radio show that requires you to pay for an ad. Do your homework, and Google the names of anyone approaching you for money. In hindsight, we realize we should have dug a little deeper before trusting a stranger to keep his word.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us directly at

    April, as you know well, I know who this person is, and I have experienced the same from him, only in slightly different issues.

    Lan Lamphere of is the culprit of whom you speak. About two months ago he started some “sabre waving” with me. He claimed that I had “stolen” an intellectual property of his regarding a paranormal investigative television show. Nothing could be farther from the truth, and as things played out, he confessed to me that it was all in an effort to grub for money from me and those closest to me. After I spoke with his attorney, Lan dropped the entire matter, but not after attempting to besmirch my name and reputation on his podcast and radio show and in mass emails.

    In addition, he stole money from my wife and me, and has yet to repay. The details are too lengthy to air here, but suffice it to say that I am accurate in calling him a “theif.”

    I use his name here, publicly, only because I am certain of my facts and hope to prevent others from falling into the same abysmal mess that both you and i have experienced with this man. The saddest part of all is that he was once a dear friend, and to see someone you once loved and cared about fall down so low is disheartening.

    I will say this, he did offer me an apology in private, and said that he would “make things right,” but to date, I haven’t seen a single attempt on his part to undo anything he has done. His omissions – as well as his overt actions – say a lot about his character and lack thereof.

    I am sorry i ever introduced you to him, April. Hopefully this will all turn out well.
