THERE IS NO CONTROL OF TOUR COMPANIES
OPERATING IN SAN ANTONIO.  NO LICENSE IS
NEEDED TO GIVE TOURS AND THERE IS NO
CONTROL OVER THE ADVERTISING THEY DO.  

WHEN THE SAN ANTONIO CITY GOVERNMENT
WAS NOTIFIED OF LOCAL TOUR COMPANIES
MAKING HUGE FALSE CLAIMS IN THEIR
ADVERTISING THEY CAME BACK WITH THIS
LEGAL NOTICE.

LOOK FOR THIRD PARTY LINKS TO THE
TOUR YOU WANT TO GO ON SUPPORTING
THEIR CLAIMS OF MEDIA ATTENTION.  WE
GIVE YOU A
DOZEN OF THEM AND THERE
ARE MANY MORE OUT THERE THAT WE
WILL TRY TO ADD LATER.
BUYER BEWARE OF TEXAS
LAWS AND WHY WE GET
SLANDERED BY THE
COMPETITION
SAN ANTONIO VISITORS AND CONVENTION BUREAU
LEGAL NOTICE
WHAT THEY ARE BASICALLY SAYING IS THAT IF YOU VISIT SAN
ANTONIO THERE IS NO CONSUMER PROTECTION ABOUT TOURS WHO
HAVE FALSE CLAIMS IN THEIR ADVERTISING TO LURE YOU INTO
THINKING THEY ARE LEGITIMATE, FACTUAL OR POPULAR.

TEXAS IS A BUYER BEWARE STATE AND YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO
RESEARCH THE CLAIMS OF COMPANIES BEFORE YOU PAY THEM FOR
SERVICES.   BUT YOU ARE FROM OUT OF TOWN, YOU DO NOT HAVE
THE TIME TO RESEARCH SUCH THINGS SO WE ARE GOING TO GIVE
YOU SOME
SHORTCUTS TO FACTS TO PROTECT YOURSELF.  
IF YOU CAME ACROSS OUR WEB PAGE YOU MAY HAVE NOTICED
OTHER WEB PAGES THAT SLANDER US.  HERE ARE THE FACTS ABOUT
THIS PERSON WHO SLANDERS US.
  I AM NOT GOING SLANDER THIS
PERSON IN RESPONSE, I AM JUST GOING TO GIVE YOU FACTS SO
YOU CAN PROTECT YOURSELF.

THEY CLAIM
We have been leading Ghost Hunters through San Antonio's Most Haunted
Locations since 1996. Knowledgeable guides,  historical accuracy and a
Top Notch Reputation is what has put us at the top of San Antonio's Best
Entertainment List for the last 3 years.
  They also claim 30 years of ghost
hunting experience!

FIRST FRAUD SHORTCUT, GO TO THE SAN
ANTONIO BEXAR COUNTY RECORDS WEB PAGE

BEXAR COUNTY RECORDS INFORMATION
WEB PAGE.
AFTER CREATING YOUR FREE ACCOUNT GO TO BUSINESS/OWNER
AND SEARCH NAMES.  TYPE IN MARTIN LEAL.  YOU WILL SEE I STARTED
DOING GHOST TOURS IN 1997.   I REGISTERED ALAMO CITY
PARANORMAL AS A GHOST INVESTIGATING COMPANY AND HAUNTINGS
HISTORY TOURS FOR OUR TOUR COMPANY.

IF YOU TYPE IN THE NAME OF THE PERSON SLANDERING ME OR HIS
COMPANY NAME (THE COMPETITOR DOES NOT GIVE YOU HIS FULL
NAME IN HIS ADVERTISEMENT TO HINDER YOUR SEARCH SO YOU NEED

TO
 SEARCH THE LAST NAME PLEBAN)   JR IS JOHNNY RAY PLEBAN.   
YOU WILL SEE HE WAS IN THE GLASS BUSINESS IN 1999, THEN HE
STARTED DOING HISTORY TOURS (A TOUR CALLED "WALK SAN
ANTONIO") IN JANUARY OF 2004.  THIS COMPETITOR DID NOT START
DOING GHOST TOURS UNTIL NOVEMBER OF 2004.   

HE EVEN REGISTERED NUMEROUS BUSINESS NAMES SIMILAR TO MINE
TO CONFUSE THE PUBLIC.

ITS ALL RIGHT THERE FOR YOU TO SEE FOR YOURSELF ON PUBLIC
RECORD, NOT A CLAIM I AM MAKING, JUST THE FACTS.  
SECOND FRAUD SHORTCUT

THIS COMPETITOR CLAIMS NUMEROUS ARTICLES IN PUBLICATIONS
THAT THE GENERAL PUBLIC KNOWS AND TRUSTS.   ONE OF THEM IS  
TEXAS MONTHLY AND YOU HAVE THE ABILITY TO SEARCH THEIR WEB
PAGE FOR ARTICLES SO CHECK THIS OUT.  

GO TO THE LINK BELOW, SEARCH MARTIN LEAL, YOU WILL FIND AN
ARTICLE ABOUT ALAMO CITY PARANORMAL, MARTIN LEAL, THE
MENGER HOTEL, ETC.  

NOW CHECK OUT JR, HIS TOUR NAME, WHATEVER AND YOU WILL FIND
ARTICLES BUT IF YOU READ THEM YOU WILL NOTICE HE IS NEVER
MENTIONED IN THE ARTICLE.   THE ARTICLES ARE ABOUT ME BECAUSE
HE INTENTIONALLY USES NAMES SIMILAR TO MINE TO HOPE YOU WILL
THINK YOU ARE GOING ON MY TOUR.  
TEXAS MONTHLY ARCHIVES
THIRD FRAUD SHORTCUT

THE COMPETITOR CLAIMS THE SUPPORT OF LOCAL GHOST HUNTERS

THE COMPETITOR CLAIMS
"Alamo City Ghost Tours  was chosen as the Official Ghost Tour for the Texas
Paranormal Round up 2007 and the San Antonio Paranormal Extravaganza  
2007"

THE COMPETITOR ALSO MENTIONS SUPPORT OF HIS TOURS BY  TEXAS
MICHELLE AND THE GHOST CHICKS.  

GHOST CHICKS FIRST TRIED TO DO A CONFERENCE IN SAN ANTONIO
CALLED THE SAN ANTONIO PARANORMAL EXTRAVAGANZA BUT COULD
NOT SELL ENOUGH TICKETS TO MAKE THE EVENT HAPPEN.  THEN TEXAS
MICHELLE TRIED TO TAKE UP THE EFFORT AND IT FELL THROUGH TOO.   
DO A GOOGLE SEARCH OF TEXAS MICHELLE, GHOST CHICKS, THE
NAMES OF THEIR CONFERENCES AND YOU WILL SEE THEM ADVERTISING
THE CONFERENCES BUT NO INDICATION THAT THE EVENT HAPPENED.

TRUE GHOST HUNTERS IN THE AREA ARE THE TARGET CUSTOMERS
THAT WILL PAY $50 OR MORE TO ATTEND A CONFERENCE AND I HAVE
DONE HALF A DOZEN OF THEM OVER THE LAST 11 YEARS.   I HAVE
NEVER CANCELLED A CONFERENCE BECAUSE OF A LACK OF INTEREST.  
THE LAST CONFERENCE I DID HAD 160 PEOPLE SHOW UP AND I WOULD
ESTIMATE THAT 75% OF THEM ARE MEMBERS OF LEGITIMATE GHOST
HUNTINGS GROUPS IN TEXAS AND SURROUNDING STATES.  

THE FACT IS THAT EXPERIENCED GHOST HUNTERS IN TEXAS WHO
SUPPORT CONFERENCES  KNOW THAT TEXAS MICHELLE AND THE
GHOST CHICKS ARE AMATEURS.   THAT IS WHY THEIR CONFERENCES DID
NOT HAPPEN AND THEIR LACK OF PROFESSIONAL GHOST HUNTING
KNOWLEDGE IS WHY THEY SUPPORT THE COMPETITOR

AGAIN, JUST FACTS YOU CAN SEE FOR YOURSELF, THE COMPETITOR
BRAGGING ABOUT THE SUPPORT OF
CONFERENCES THAT NOBODY
SHOWED UP FOR!
MOST PUBLIC LIBRARIES HAVE THE ABILITY TO DO A PERIODICAL SEARCH
WHERE YOU CAN LOOK UP ARTICLES.   I HAVE YET TO FIND ONE ARTICLE
JR CLAIMS TO APPEAR IN.  

GO TO PUBLISHED IN THE MEDIA TO THE LEFT HERE AND WE HAVE THIRD
PARTY LINKS TO JUST A FEW OF THE ARTICLES WE HAVE ABOUT US.

webpage it does not list a Texas Michelle as a member.
