Evidence, finally, of how Scientology obsessively tracks down its former members - 2018-02-13
One of the most-well known things about Scientology is that once you get on their mailing list, it's very difficult to get taken off of it.
On social media, you often see people speak of being tracked down by the church decades after they bought a single book or took a single course. We talked to a man who was still getting calls and mailers more than forty years after he'd left Scientology and had moved multiple times.
We're often asked by people how the church tracks them down when they've moved, or when they have an unlisted telephone number. We've told them that we have to believe Scientology has a fairly sophisticated database that is constantly being updated, and that it must use fairly sophisticated tools.
