Blog: Tony Ortega: Scientology deception and financial fraud spelled out in incredible legal letter - 2019-04-17
Tony Ortega recently published an extraordinary letter. Written by Los Angeles attorney Graham Berry to long-time Scientology attorney Kendrick Moxon, the letter concerns Sean Henderson who became yet another victim of Scientology's ongoing credit card and loan scheme.
In this scheme Scientology is targeting older people who were once in the Church of Scientology but left decades ago. Once these people are contacted, Scientology salespeople offer them the inducement of a free airplane ticket and hotel accommodations to come to Los Angeles and talk to the Church of Scientology. These inducements are a pretext; once these people arrive in Los Angeles they are pressured by Scientology salespeople to go into heavy credit card and loan debt for Scientology courses and products.
The techniques used in credit card/loan scheme reveal that Scientology salespeople appear to have expert knowledge of how to manipulate certain credit unions, credit card companies, and banks in order to instantly get their victims approved for large lines of credit. Once approved, these lines of credited are instantly transferred into Scientology's bank accounts. The net effect of this predatory — and likely criminal — financial scheme is to saddle older people with heavy debt at high rates of interest.
