Blog: Church of Scientology Hustling Donations in the Aftermath of Hurricane Harvey - 2017-09-01
As we reported in our previous post, The Church of Scientology has been caught red-handed in a social media fraud in which it used stock photos to pose as Scientologists. These fake Scientologists were then used to launch social media attacks on Leah Remini, Mike Rinder, A&E, A&E's sponsors, and the courageous people who appear on Leah's show Scientology and the Aftermath. This is a scandal and a disgrace for Scientology.
There is yet another Church of Scientology scam to cover today. For over a decade Scientology leader David Miscavige has claimed that the Scientology Volunteer Ministers formed the "largest independent relief force on Earth. " This has always been a lie and will always be a lie. However, Scientology still makes this claim:
The Scientology Volunteer Ministers program (VMs) was established by Scientology founder, L. Ron Hubbard, in 1976. Some 100,000 VMs in 120 nations helped more than 1.6 million people in the last year alone, making the Scientology Volunteer Ministers the largest independent relief organization on Earth.
