The following is just one example of perhaps 40 letters that I've already sent to the Executive Director of the Scientology Mission of San Francisco. Their address is 406 Sutter Street. Their entrance is kind of on the N.W. corner of Sutter and Stockton, right behind the bus stop. It's a little hard to find because they don't have a sign out front. This information is freely available to anyone. Just stop by practically any garbage can. You can always find PLENTY of their personality tests there. On my way home from my last picket I saw one can that had over a hundred of them stuffed inside, another fifty were littering the sidewalk. Perhaps some staff member needed to get their stats up in a hurry?

I DEMAND an immediate and complete refund of all the money that you scammed from me PLUS all the interest I lost on my money. Here are some of the reasons why:
* I was promised that $cientology would definitely cure all the pain I was in and yet after hundreds of hours of "auditing" I was still just as sick.
* I was promised that I would learn to communicate better yet $cientology had exactly the opposite affect on me. It's no wonder, the "communication" course I was conned into paying for is nothing more than a series of drills designed to train you to lie and disseminate $cientology. The Trs are nothing more than a form of hypnotism designed to program you to retreat from the world and become docile and obedient. None of this has ANYTHING to do with real communication. I did not pay all my money to be turned into a mindless robot like that.
* I was promised that my IQ would dramatically increase and yet after hundreds of hours of "auditing" my IQ stayed exactly the same.
* I was promised that I would get my self-determinism back and yet the whole time I was involved in you cult I was constantly PREVENTED from exercising any self-determinism. I was NEVER ONCE allowed to think for myself much less encouraged to. I was constantly being told EXACTLY what to think and what to believe. I was constantly being told to just shut up and obey Hubbard no matter how stupid, idiotic and unworkable his "tech" was. It's no wonder my ability to do anything "productive" decreased. It's no wonder your staff were constantly bumbling around acting like the Keystone Cops.
If I have to sue you to get my money back I'll also ask for damages PLUS attorneys fees. Just what you guys need - ONE MORE LAWSUIT. Your non-confront in this matter is going to end up costing you.
Do you think the people that I'm telling all these things to are ever going to be sucked in to your cult? Do you think that anyone who first reads the famous TIME magazine article is ever going to be fooled by the lies you tell them? Once they read that article they'll never take your "free" personality test, much less set foot in your door. Isn't that TIME magazine article the greatest? You just gotta love it. What did TIME call $cientology, "The Cult of GREED?" Cool title, how appropriate.
Do you realize how many people read my bright green fluorescent sign as I make the long commute to your mission and back? You know the sign, the one that says, "in my opinion $cientology is a $CAM". I would say literally thousands read it every trip I make. I keep it prominently displayed at all times. Most of the people I encounter read it because the color immediately grabs their attention. Many just smile and shake their head in agreement. Many say something like, "Ain't that the truth." Many even stop me and ask WHY I believe $cientology is a $cam. It gives me the perfect opportunity to tell them what REALLY goes on inside your "mission." My opinion of $cientology is certainly getting a lot of exposure these days. My pickets are a perfect compliment to "My Story" that is now being permanently posted on several websites around the world.
As long as you have MY MONEY I'm going to keep making that long commute. I'm going to keep on proudly displaying my sign for the whole world to see. YOU KNOW I WILL TOO Chris. Just look at how many hundreds of trips I made to your mission already -- and that was when I just couldn't stand the place. Now I have a REAL REASON for making the commute. My trips are made even more worthwhile by all the public support I've been getting. Drivers honk their horns and give me the thumbs up sign. Pedestrians tell me they agree with me and appreciate what I'm doing. Some even laugh, point to my sign and say, "You got that right, it IS a SCAM".
Face it, the whole world is laughing at you and your loony cult. People even stop me and thank me for exposing $cientology for what it really is. What a rush I get every time that happens. This is all happening right outside your front door Chris. I'm getting these reactions all the way through downtown SF, through the BART stations, and on all the busses I have to take. There is absolutely NO WAY that you're ever going to be able to expand into a field that is becoming so antagonistic to $camitology. $camitology is eventually going to bog down and die out. Just look at your stats, THEY PROVE that $cientology is going nowhere. Look at the big loss you guys just took in the Netherlands. Hearing about THAT one made me want to go out and write a "success story".
As long as you've got MY MONEY I'm going to keep doing everything I legally can to make sure that the word keeps going out and events like the ones I've described above keep happening.
Chris, YOU'RE the one that is forcing me to do all these things. Just remember that! I wasn't doing any of this until you refused to communicate and return my money. I'd say that's down right suppressive of you. You pull in what you can't confront. Remember, you came looking for me, I never went looking for you. If you have a problem with me you only have YOURSELF TO BLAME. Another thing to remember, what you seeing me doing outside your front door is just a tip of the iceberg, I'm doing a hell of a lot more to inform others about the REAL intentions of $cientology.
YOU WILL BE HEARING AND SEEING ME AGAIN CONCERNING MY REFUND.
