Commercial harassment

A French court has convicted Scientology for fraud, fining the French office over $900,000 for the "commercial harassment" of potential cultists. Pity they could not also convict potential recruits for their gullibility. But then I expect $30,000 of moronic Scientology crap is its own reward.

The case was brought by a woman who was recruited to join the Church of Scientology, which is headquartered on Hollywood Boulevard. The woman subsequently spent $30,000 on books, classes and "purification packages." When she later wanted to leave the organization and asked to be reimbursed, the church refused. A judge found that that church officials profited handsomely while this woman and others were essentially made financial servants of Scientology.

Too bad they fined them. I prefer to see it as a stupid tax. If you give the Catholic church $30,000 can you get it back? you can tithe 10% or some other amount... your choice. That the person didn't feel they got their monies worth, its a religion, not a commodity, suck it up!
