Whats up with MUFON? I went to the site to check out becoming a member and the site is like Amazon "Click here to spend money" I know it's Nonprofit or is supposed to be , , Want to know your guys thoughts? Their head quarters are about 30 min away wouldn't mind becoming a Field investigator How's their credibility nowadays? I am a bit turned off by the Buy Buy Buy however.

Ooooh, if you join, let us know what it's like. Maybe the buy, buy, stuff is to fund their efforts?

Would be awesome to hear from someone who is doing field work!

Takes a bit to fully load but it is there.

I agree the asking for money part is overdone.

I am an FI for MUFON. I won't be renewing next month. There are a ton of hoax's, more then you can imagine. You pay MUFON to become an FI and they keep wanting more and more from you, all the while you are a volunteer.

I've never been pressured to buy buy buy. The pressure comes from do this, do that re paperwork from reporting.

After 3 years I stopped one day and wondered why in the heck am I supporting MUFON with my membership? What am I getting from it? Not much.

I'm sure there are field investigators who do their best to do an honest job but the top management at MUFON has been under heavy criticism for having low credibility such as supporting this hoax:

MUFON Jumps the Shark

MUFON has fabricated documents to look like genuine secret government UFO documents, and presented them in Hangar 1 as if they were authentic, with no explanation or disclaimer. If that isn't downright dishonesty, I don't know what else to call it.

MUFON is utterly useless in my own experience. As are all of the other high profile UFO folks, money is the primary motive for their organizations.
