Throughout his career, he exposed a number of fraud mediums. He employed a secret mirror and caught the medium Henry Slade swapping slates and hiding them in the back of his chair. Krebs exposed the Bangs Sisters by using a secret mirror under the table, which caught them tampering with a sealed envelope. The sisters during the séance would open the envelope and write in it a reply which they would pretend a spirit had written.
He also wrote the book Trick Methods of Eusapia Paladino (1910), which documented the tricks of the medium Eusapia Palladino.
