This is my first post in nearly two years. I just landed a new job after two years of unemployment, and frankly, I just didn’t have the energy to be on this site for a while, since virtually all of my energy and time went towards job hunting. Things finally turned around, and wanted to check in again.
That being said, there are two reasons for this post.
1) When I checked in a few weeks ago to browse recent posts, I was glad to see the ones from Debbie Cook. Even though she still clings to respecting Hubbard and his wretched tech, at least she was able to see what a monster David Miscavige is, left and then began speaking out. Overall, I saw this as good news, even though she might never, as a lot of other exes, ever be able to accept and come to terms with Hubbard’s monstrous crimes. However, I’m still struggling to accept the fact that are few people in history who are guilty of such staggering crimes against humanity as Hubbard and Miscavige have gotten away, pretty much free and clear. Hubbard, obviously, has been dead for more than 25 years. But I simply cannot get my mind to accept that Miscavige has never been charged, let alone convicted for his hideous crimes. I have long hoped that Miscavige would be arrested, do the “perp walk”, be placed on trial, sent to jail for life without possibility of parole, and all the money he has stolen be returned to the true victims of Scientology and see this evil cult permanently dismantled.
But I am also a realist and know that this might never come to pass regardless of how well deserved the above actions would be. However, I still hold onto hope that he will at least be charged with at least half of his crimes.
2) The second item is something I need help from any of the posters on this MB who can provide me with the following assistance.
Shortly before I stopped posting on a regular basis two years ago, there was a thread regarding people who found attorneys who were able to get back ALL of the money they ever spent on Scientology services rooted in the fact that EVERY book, tape, auditing and academy classes were all based on lies and fraud. I have kept virtually every receipt on any book/tape/service I ever took with them. Overall, I spent approximately $15,000 on Scientology. I realize this is a mere pittance compared to those who had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on this cult. But frankly, I fell deep into debt during the time I was unemployed and getting this money returned would be a heaven-send.
So the question is, can anyone provide me with the names of attorneys and/or law firms who have successfully been able to return all monies spent on anything to do with Scientology by former members based on coercion and fraud? This would be greatly appreciated and if this is info that would best be kept private for the time being, then by all means, please send me a private message. Either way I very much wish to pursue this so long as whomever I am referred to has had successful actions on getting all monies spent returned.
Thanks ahead of time to anyone involved for any assistance provided. I’ll check in next month and talk about how my job is going (in case anyone is interested), and hopefully go back to posting on a semi-regular basis.
