    It will involve cash, credit card or personal check with two forms of ID. Actually, everything they try to lure people back doesn't work ... it's a down stat snowball to cult hell. :happydance:

    They'll threaten them with Disconnection and demand money.

    What else?

    That is not what is happening. Please read the threads where people are talking about the phone calls.

    Here is a non churchie complaint

    Expert: Ed Buckner
    Date: 1/28/2008
    Subject: Interstate Telephone Harassment from Church of Scientology

    Question
    Hello, we have received over 100 calls from the Church of Scientology over the past 3 months. Mostly from this telephone number, but there are others as well: 727-683-9114.

    We have politely asked them to take us off their list, and we have screamed our heads off at them. They call almost every day, and always late on Sunday nights between 10 and 11 pm. They refuse to stop calling.

    They claim they are trying to find someone who used to live at our address, but our telephone number is a new one so there is no legitimate reason for them to have and abuse our telephone number.

    Is there any way we can press charges against them for interstate telephone harassment? We just want them to stop, and each time they say they will record the information to take us off their list, but then they call again within a day. We have spoken to the FBI, and they say as long as there is no personal threats made against us, they can do nothing.

    There is also piles of junk mail that come from them to this address, and we can't make that stop either. They should be ashamed of themselves. We receive over 10 pounds per week of expensive glossy spam, in triplicate.

    We'd appreciate any advice you can give on this matter.
    Thank you

    A number of years back an attorney started getting called repeatedly by one company. The 'underling' callers kept telling him they had no mechanism to take him off the list. He notified the company, in writing, that he would start billing them for his time. He tallied the call times over a period of six months and submitted a bill. They refused to pay and he took them to small claims court. He won. :coolwink:

    Hey, that could work even if you aren't an attorney. In small claims court, it would just be you vs. some Joe Schmo sea org member, because they don't allow attorneys there. It's just two individuals and the judge.

    Thank you! I just might use that if they start up again. (But I don't think that they will.)

    Chances are they wouldn't show up for court anyway and you'd win by default.

    I won a traffic accident case like that in small claims court. :D I had to garnish his wages to get my money.

    It would be a scream to get davey's wages garnished.:D

    This happened back in the early to mid 80s when many Scientologists left the church. Many of them went over to groups like David Mayo. The Church response was to send teams of missionaires to handle the disaffected field where scores of Scientologist became ex-scios. This was also the time Cl IV orgs had to send their staff to do the "decks" at their nearest FOLO. This was a way to RPF staff members who were not in the SO. Rollbacks were the major tool used back then. It was witchhunts at its finest.

    Because there was no internet or any other way of sorting out the truth the Co$ survived this period but looking back at it now if we had the internet the Co$ would have imploded. There were many other Scientologist that were on the edge of leaving the Church at that time but decided to stay.

    A word of advice on answering phones - don't unless you don't really care. It is very annoying but that Pro TRs course works great in ignoring the calls. Glad I got something out of that course. :blah: I treat them as vampires. They can't come in unless you invite them. :ignore:

    It's great to read the the whole field is disaffected. I would love to see the snowball effect get so big that it would run over DM. Have to go...somebody is knocking on my door. :omg:

    And Merril Mayo was at the Riverside Mission when Bent splintered off from the CofS. (I was chastised for not reporting this, on OCBM, from one former member that was there during that time.)
