When they come into contact with people, they present themselves as members of a secret organization. Sometimes, they even show a white card with the word "Security" on it and refer to each other by number, rather than name.


When Richardson informed them he had already given the piece of metal to authorities for testing, he said they threatened his wife. He did not hear from the men again after that, and he had no idea how they could have known about the piece of metal.

The next encounter was reported in 1968 by Jack Robinson, a UFO researcher in New Jersey. Robinson claimed he and his wife were terrorized by a man in a black suit who would stand across the street from their apartment building.

After they had seen the Man in Black outside their apartment for three days, the couple’s friend Timothy Green Beckley decided to get a closer look and actually captured this photo of the man:

This is one of the rare instances of a reported MIB actually caught on camera.


Hopkins' description of the man who appeared at his door is perhaps the most unsettling of any reported MIB sighting. He said the man wore a neatly tailored black suit, was bald with no eyebrows or eyelashes, and had smooth dead white plastic skin and ruby-red lips.


Hopkins claimed the MIB took out a coin and told him to watch it. As he watched it, "it started to develop a silver color instead of copper and then the silver became bluish and the penny was getting quite fuzzy, out of focus, blurred, and then it simply was gone – it slowly dematerialized."


Hotel manager Shane Sovar and a security guard reported seeing a large triangular UFO outside the building. A group called the Aerial Phenomenon Investigations Team looked into the incident. They (along with three other witnesses) reported that a couple weeks later, two unidentified Men in Black visited the hotel.
