Happy to see it after hearing of this ploy.

The worm is turning Down under. Did Dan who wrote this story who is currently away writing Fires until the 22nd receive some follow up e-mail in his private email box?

This is not the first time Scientology has preyed on bushfire victims in Victoria. Interestingly the article has been withdrawn from all Australian newspapers websites due to "copyright" violations!!, but fortunately Tigger posted it in full on ars.

The Australian: Bushfire volunteer's 'pay docked' [January 31, 2006]
http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/co ... 44,1799396...

QANTAS has been accused of docking the pay of a volunteer firefighter
who helped battle raging bushfires in Victoria last week.


(SNIP)


Meanwhile, the Church of Scientology has denied suggestions it tried to
recruit new members during the height of the bushfire crisis.


The denial comes after claims today that two members of the Church of
Scientology approached Ararat Rural City Council for the identities of
bushfire victims.


"They were seeking to assist wherever they could, particularly with
counselling, and were seeking to get some information from council
about the whereabouts � names and addresses of people who'd been
affected," chief executive Bill Braithwaite told ABC Radio.


"Our staff were concerned, we have procedures here and The Privacy Act
applies and no details were given out."I'm told they were fairly
insistent."


But Church of Scientology spokeswoman Pauline Priest said members were
invited to a community bushfire meeting and only made sandwiches.


"There wasn't any under-handedness, we never do that," she told the
ABC."We were offering to help with whatever people needed and as it
turned out, at this particular time, it was to make the sandwiches. Of
course our volunteer ministers are trained to help people."
