    I'm not a lawyer but here is my opinion anyway.
    It's not fraud unless you can get someone who donated money to file a complaint.

    Can someone donate a dollar then file complaint?

    Class action could get the donations back?

    What I would like to know is, did they open elsewhere in San Diego? New Location?

    September 3, 2013

    Fairfield Residential of San Diego has purchased 8.6 acres of commercial land in La Mesa from the Church of Scientology for $9.3 million, with plans to develop the property as multifamily housing.

    The seller of the land, at 7380 Parkway Drive, was the Los Angeles-based Church of Scientology International, according to CoStar Group and public data.

    American Pacific Investments represented the buyer, and Sentre Partners represented the seller.

    Is this a pattern? Sell real estate because service-based income from scientology is rapidly declining?

    They are selling off the old buildings to make way for the Ideal orgs. It is just another part of the scam.

    Is there a recent history of property sales or could it be the building needs major refurbishment? Either way it's worth watching.
  12. Financially, they play shell games and move things around. They have millions stashed all over the place, and they are good at utilising tax shelters in offshore accounts.
    I would be curious to see what the original property was purchased for , who they purchased it from, and whose name is on the current escrow.

    They were "donations". They chose to give away their money. It was their gift to their Church.

    what with not less than one of the IAS fundraisers out and writing about it, I think the time might be ripe to have this sent in front of a jury to find out what they think.

    Now is a good time to sue IMHO - David "he is NOT insane!" Miscavige is horribly busy micro-managing the building-formerly-known-as-the-Super-Power-Building and the training of staff for it and so on and so forth. And the funds available to pay compensation to make lawsuits go away has not been emptied. Yet.
