Chiropractors seeking advice find Scientology-influenced seminars - 1987-11-29
Seattle chiropractor David Scheer says he simply wanted to build a better practice. He went to one of the country's foremost chiropractic management consultants, paying $4,000 for a year's service.
Before he was through, though, he would pay $18,000 to the Church of Scientology and, he says, suffer the "money-hungry rapaciousness" of the cult-like sect. When he "opened my eyes and demanded the money back," he says, "it took us five, six months and we had to hire an attorney to get it back."
Scheer was introduced in 1985 to Scientologists through a seminar run by David Singer Consultants. Singer, a consulting company based in Clearwater, offered to teach Scheer how to attract and keep more clients. How to increase office harmony. How to improve collections.
