The Rossen Reports team set up appointments with several psychics, then rented a brand-new home in a New Jersey suburb where no one has ever lived, and rigged it with a dozen hidden cameras.
A psychic known as Mama Donna said the house was filled with positive energy. Asked if she felt anything bad, she said, "No, I don't. I would really tell you." She charged for a quick visit and went on her way.
But a duo named Susan and Rev. Joseph said there was negative energy in the house. "It's negative in the sense that it could cause setbacks, it can cause financial setbacks," Susan said. To purge it, they burned incense and chanted all over the house, and claimed to have trapped the negative energy in a bottle.
Despite their supposed abilities, the psychics were not aware that Jeff Rossen had been monitoring their activities from a control room upstairs in the home. When he revealed himself to them, he asked: "How is it possible that you were able to find all of this negative energy? This is a brand-new house, no one's lived in it before."
"It's not a haunted house, but spirits roam in empty places, they roam in hallways," Susan said.
"Isn't this just hocus pocus to take advantage of homeowners?" Rossen asked.
"No, no, no," Rev. Joseph protested. As the pair spoke to Rossen, one of their associates tried to block the camera and scooped up the cash the Rossen team had brought to pay them.
When another team of psychics arrived, they announced: "There's a presence of two or three entities here ...
They won't let you feel comfortable here, you'll just be stuck. [You] won't be able to find a job. You'll want to move."
