Amidst the substantial increase in modern day UFO reports ,we also find a viral number of deliberate hoaxes which detract from the efforts of serious research into ufology. As the lead host of the SyFy Channels’ reality TV series Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files, Hansen will continue the discussion about the relationship between belief and the use of media technology. Using skills learned as a federal law enforcement agent, Hansen will take you a step further, venturing inside the mind of the hoaxer. Can the hoaxer be profiled? Can we use psychology and pattern recognition to learn why and how they hoax? Hansen will present his latest research in hopes that through educating ourselves to the hoaxes, we can strengthen the credibility of the truly unexplained.
Ben Hansen is the lead investigator and host of SyFy’s hit TV show, Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files.
