What do you get when you combine 4 wacky walleteers, a box of ghost hunting equipment, too much mountain dew, and an old building? An adventure to the “dark side!” Wanna come with?
Of course you do, because we’re giving away all our Ghost Hunting Gadgets to one lucky winner! Read the post for details!
Most of us FatWallet employees are afraid to go into the spooky unoccupied portion of the building we’re renting. It’s a dark, full of cobwebs, and so many tiny rooms and winding hallways that it’s easy to get turned around and lost. Aside from the servers that power the FatWallet office, there’s nothing over there. (Or is there?)
Four of our brave coworkers decided to have some fun in the office testing ghost hunting equipment on a trip to the “dark side” of the office and document it on video for us all to enjoy!
