A man haunted by his dead girlfriend claims that she has been sending him messages from beyond the grave. Apparently she has been sending him Facebook messages for nearly two years since her death, Good Morning America reported yesterday.
A Reddit user by the name of NateSW went to the social-news site to share an eerie story about a former girlfriend that recently died in car crash. He posted the story under the title "My dead girlfriend keeps messaging me on Facebook. I’ve got the screenshots. I don’t know what to do." in the sub section of Reddit called NoSleep.
According to Nathan his girlfriend Emily died in a car accident on August 7, 2012. Emily was killed when a vehicle ran a red light and struck her car. She died instantly at the scene. Nathan claims that she has been haunting him by sending him messages on Facebook since September 2013.
"Em had been dead for approaching thirteen months when she first messaged me," Nathan said in his post on Reddit.
"I had left Emily’s Facebook account activated so I could send her the occasional message, post on her wall, go through her albums. It felt too final (and too un-Emily) to memorialize it. I share access with her mother Susan, meaning, her mother has her login and password and has spent a total of approximately three minutes on the website (or on a computer, total). After a little confusion, I assumed it was her," Nathan said.
Nathan opened the first message on September 4, 2013 at 3:31 PM. The message just said "hello" and it was repeated again thirteen minutes later. At first Nathan thought it was Emily's mother that sent the message.
"I had received confirmation from Susan that she hadn't logged in to Em’s Facebook since the week of her death. Em knew a lot of people, so I instantly assumed this was one of her more tech savvy ‘friends’ f***ing with me in the worst possible way," Nathan said.
After Nathan realized it wasn't Emily's mom, he thought it might be a hacker sending the messages. Nathan noticed that whomever was sending the messages from Emily's account was recycling old messages from their shared chat history.
In February, Emily's profile started tagging her in Nathan's photos. It would happen randomly. On March 15, Nathan sent the supposed hacker a message asking why they were tagging Emily in his photos. He received an answer a week and a half later.
Even stranger messages started to come from Emily's profile in April. One of the messages had random phrases that appeared to have been recycled from previous conversations. Another message repeated things that Nathan said. In May, Nathan got a message from Emily saying that she is freezing.
"This has given me nightmares that have only started to kick in recently. I keep dreaming that she's in an ice cold car, frozen blue and grey, and I'm standing outside in the warmth screaming at her to open the door. She doesn't even realize I'm there. Sometimes her legs are outside with me," Nathan said.
Last week, Nathan eventually decided to memorialize Emily's Facebook page. Apparently that wasn't enough for her to rest in peace. She sent Nathan another message on Tuesday.
"I don't know what to do anymore. Do I kill her memorial page? What if it is her? I want to puke. I don’t know what's happening," Nathan posted as he heard a new Facebook alert from Emily.
So is Nathan really being haunted by the ghost of his girlfriend Emily? Or is this some type of prank or hoax from a hacker?
