15 People Who Claim They Encountered Men In Black


Men in black are men who wear black suits and who claim they are government officials. They come up often in UFO conspiracy theories. UFO witnesses often claim that men in black stalk and threaten them to keep quiet about their UFO encounters. In a lot of cases, men in black seem to know everything about witnesses’ UFO encounters even though witnesses usually have never told anyone of the encounter.

Most of the time men in black are said to wear black suits, dark hats, immaculate white shirts, dark ties and dark shoes. Their faces are described as foreign looking and pale and they usually have no hair, eyebrows or eyelashes. In some bizarre cases, men in black even wear lipstick! Men in black are said to be cold and formal in demeanour and they often behave in a strange manner. For example, their voice usually sounds computerized and their phrases appear learnt-off and unnatural. Witnesses claim that men in black appear out of nowhere and then after an unpleasant interrogation vanish into thin air. Other times men in black don’t even speak to the witness but simply stare at them in a terrifying manner.

Some people claim that men in black are government officials who are tasked with silencing people who have had a UFO encounter so as not to cause panic. Others however claim that men in black are actually aliens themselves.

1. Robert Richardson Collided With A UFO And Was Later Threatened By Men In Black

In 1967, Robert Richardson contacted the Aerial Phenomena Research Organization (APRO) and told them that he had collided with a UFO. Richardson said that he was driving at night and was just coming around a bend when he noticed a strange object in front of him. He was unable to stop in time and collided with the object. But immediately after the collision, the object disappeared.

Police visited the scene of collision and only found Richardson’s skid marks. However, when Richardson returned to the scene on his own he also found a lump of metal which possible belonged to the UFO.

Three days later after the strange collision, Richardson was visited by three men in black who were rather rude and threatening. A week later, Richardson was visited by two different men. They wore black suits and one of them had a strange accent. The men tried to persuade Richardson that he had not collided with anything and then asked for the lump of metal. Richardson told them that the piece of metal had gone in for analysis.

The men in black then said “If you want your wife to stay as pretty as she is, then you’d better get the metal back.” The curious thing is that only Richardson, his wife and two workers at APRO knew about the metal’s existence.
