    Come on guys, the mp3 sites are just computer generated spam, how did you even find them? What link do they have to the charity whatsoever?

    Re: New front group pretends to be operating a charity in Kenya !!Wear Proxy Condom!!

    And using proxies to visit sites like these is a joke as well, they are up for a reason, for the general public to visit them. The site is full of lies to make themselves look good - they want people to read it. What are they going to do? Fair game every single person that visits?

    The most laughable is people being afraid to go to www.scientology.org

    I understand where you're coming from 212, but when we're dealing with sites that probably only get about 12 hits a day, we can only be more careful (what if a site that normally gets about 3 hits each day suddenly spikes up to 100?)

    anyway, investigating every possible footbullet for them is what is winning this for us in the time between the protests.

    oh and is there a way to stop getting tor to say that I'm from denmark (although that's great for anonymity, it's tough to read the autotranslated sites)
    any way I can force something like... britain?

    Less like a footbullet.
    Moar like a footgrenade.
    HOLY SCHNIKEES.

    My hunch is that this organisation has not been founded by the CoS leadership themselves, but by Sarah Ehrlich.

    It is based in NY/NJ, not California.
    The website does not have the same level of professionalism as the other fronts.
    There's only one video.
    The photos are on a separate site.
    There's no cross-promotion in freedom magazine.
    Promotion does not (yet?) use celebrities or distinguished organisations.

    In short, it smells quite differento to, say, Youth for Human Rights International.

    The Way to Happiness Foundation is most definitely a Scientology front.

    http://www.twth.org/ (warning, Scilon web site)

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Way_to_Happiness

    (TWTH were the ones that received money from Coca-Cola Pakistan... an arrangement that ended happily when Anonymous outed them as a Scientology front group) :) No shortage of other sketchy things going on with 'em, either.

    Looks like the helpfororphans.org site has been around since April, 2006.

    Re: New front group pretends to be operating a charity in Kenya !!Wear Proxy Condom!!

    And, of couse, they are PUSHING "The Way to Happiness" on one of their pages:

    CONDOM IF YOU WANNA: http://helpfororphans.org/TheHappinessContest.asp

    It says:
    "Delivering Real Help to Orphans Around the World

    Win $2,500 for your school
    Enter "The Happiness Contest"
    Entry Deadline: August 31, 2008

    The Way to Happiness (R) is a common sense moral code that provides 21 precepts for living a happy and ethical life. Its precepts provide a simple code of conduct with clear guidance that speaks to young and old alike. The parameters outlined in this book are creating wonderful effectsall across the globe." (it goes on to BS BS BS BS)

    You KNOW at least some if not ALL of the books that they are donating ARE "The Way to Happiness"

    well, I'll be taking a break for an hour today now, 'soon as I'm back I'll be slipping into one of those bubble gum flavoured proxies and I'll delve into the deepest parts of twth...

    I'll see if anything's changed

    yeah the only one I think we should keep tabs on is this and the orphan one.... the rest seem to be just real legit stuff she's into...

    yeah I'm kind of scared of this "contest thing" too...
    and I don't want kenyan kids reading about dianetics! think of their grammar! if they end up talking like Lron writes... well god help us if they decide to emmigrate from kenya and work in an english speaking country

    Not that they didn't try or at least throw out some celebrity names. I haven't been able to confirm this with any other source other than what is listed here.

    http://www.hamptons.com/detail.ihtml?id=1706&apid=3770&sid=6&cid=119&arc=1

    Sarah, who serves as executive director of HFOI, was in Washington last month to share with Senator Hillary Clinton information about Help for Orphans work in Africa where there are literally millions of children orphaned as a result of tribal warfare and AIDS. While I don’t know if Hillary will make it (she’s doing her own fundraising God bless her) but I do hear that Kimora Lee Simmons, Rita Cosby, Lisa Gastineau, and Joan Rivers will be there to support HFOI’s work in renovating existing orphanages, building new ones and most importantly providing real education opportunities to help these children break the cycle of poverty. Check out their work at www.helpfororphans.com."

    and

    http://www.longislandexchange.com/articles/gossip/hamptonshappenings071607.html

    Editor in Chief of Hamptons.com Nicole B. Brewer, Victoria Secret Model Cynthia Kirschner, Film Producer Matt Fortnow and world renowned artist Colette were some of the celebrities that attended the event to show their support.

    Re: Possible Scientology front group and possible fraud investigation


    And lookee here ... they manufacture their news articles very particularly it seems:


    I think we should go through ALL of their articles and lsit front groups and suspected front groups.

    For example, www.GetEmTagged.com is run by The Alexandria Project Studio, LLC. Maybe no connection, but Scientology was somehow involved in the remote viewing "Alexandria Project" if I remember correctly. Maybe they are run by Scientologists but are not a front group, simply supported casually?

    Re: Possible Scientology front group and possible fraud investigation

    Just a response to anon212. In respect to help for orpahns- I ran a html header cheecker on the website and what I got was a Session ID Logger. Basically, Logs Your IP, Browser Identifier, ANy open Connections to other websites, And anything thats on you clipboard. Thats why we are telling everyone to use a condomn. Also, Scientology has a history of logging anyone who accesses their main site- And you can be sure tha proxify is watching Big Mama for anomalies.

    Anywho- Sorry I fell asleep earlier... i was running a check on all of the sites- and I sorta fell asleep in my recliner for like, ummm. 8 hours?

    Hi,

    I just attempted to contact you in the realtime chat but for whatever reason it would not work, The website in question is www.helpfororphans.org who poses as an agent of the Help For Orphans Internation School in kenya, Which is Headed by one Charles Aboge. This "Organization" has several complaints against it with the Better Business Beureau. One Such Complaint reads as follows:


    The Group Help For Orphans (Website: www.helpfororphans.org) has been representing itself as a agent/ and or management of Help For Orphans International School in Kenya, and has been recieving donation as such. They solicit child welfare project fund, Building repair funds, as well as individual child support. Any pictures on the website were obtained fraudulently during a trip to the School, Headed by One Charles Aboge. He can be contacted at 254-0735-195-156. If this fraudulent charity warrants action on behalf of the BBB, I would ask that you would enforce any/all apllicable laws to the leaders of this deceitful group.





    (Name Removed By Request ) to me

    Hi there,

    the realtime chat is manned during key business hours and is really a pre-sales line of enquiry. Any comments emailed from it come to myself or one of the other sales consultants. I will speak to the relevant parties about this when I return to the office on Monday morning.

    For legal and contractual reasons I cannot comment on people who may or may not be clients but we do take the appropriate action when a "Cease and desist" order is served on an individual for copyright infringement, and as for them operating illegally as a charity there are organisations and government bodies to deal with these type of allegations. You mentioned the Better Business Bureau and I would advise you to contact them as we do not have the necessary credentials or indeed the evidence to initiate such investigations or charges. Can I ask who you represent or if you are just a concerned individual? As I said though there is no action we can take based purely on your email but if you have evidence of fraudulent activities, especially from a charitable organisation you should contact the relevant authorities without delay. I have included the links below to Charity Complaints with the BBB and a Wiki on Cease and Desist Orders and will provide an update for you on Monday with the proper channels that you should go through. We take our business ethics seriously and work with Law Enforcement Agencies to help stamp out fraud and will always do whatever we can to help but without legal papers from a lawyer, judge or other Government agency we are somewhat powerless from a legal point of view.

    Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further information, queries or concerns.

    Thanks again for your time,

    Best Regards,

    Re: New front group pretends to be operating a charity in Kenya !!Wear Proxy Condom!!

    Their hosting provider is correct when they say this. I wouldn't go bugging them at all.

    The best course of action is to report the info we compile to the appropriate state / fed Attorneys General offices... IRS and other regulatory agencies.

    Please... don't harangue the hosting provider.

    Keep digging, then let the right LE/regulatory folks know what we've dug up. They'll take care of shutting them down given enough evidence.

    Ill say this as politely as I can.


    HOLY SHIT! SCUMBAGS!

    Plurps- Would you do me a favor and forward his contact adress to me- Im in contact with the webhost right now and If I could get Mr. Aboge in Direct contact with the Legal Department we could possibly get this website offline- This is sickening.
  25. Plups Member

    Re: New front group pretends to be operating a charity in Kenya !!Wear Proxy Condom!!

    I think it would be helpful if we could put Charles in contact with one or two agencies that WILL follow this up.

    Before I reply to him, I'm keen to see the recommendations.

    This is fraud...


    I am going to say this again:

    Article about fraud with info on how to report:
    5 Tips: Charity scams - Sep. 12, 2005


    Don’t get the web pages taken down until the FBI can investigate this.

    With the amount of fund raising in the Hamptons and elsewhere there is obviously more money in the pot than a measly $500.

    Re: New front group pretends to be operating a charity in Kenya !!Wear Proxy Condom!!

    My god! That is so.. wrong! Can you please find out how we can donate to his charity? I'd like to flip him 10 bucks just out of sympathy for all this COS crap!

    Surely what this woman is doing is illegal? Gah! SO PISSED!

    Crap, someone needs to tell him about paypal. Or something.
  30. Plups Member

    Re: New front group pretends to be operating a charity in Kenya !!Wear Proxy Condom!!

    I'm just going to make contact with one of the directors (the Catholic Archbishop) to ask for verification and to suggest to them both the paypal option.

    Re: New front group pretends to be operating a charity in Kenya !!Wear Proxy Condom!!

    I'm curious as to how much of that money actually went to political fundraising. I remember a lot of the stories coming out of the Hamptons at that time were about the lavish parties being thrown as fundraisers for pols. Anybody have the means to look up how much the attendees at this woman's function paid to candidates? I know that partisan politics are taboo here, so I don't want to start in on any of that. It just seems very interesting that big money was most certainly collected, so where did it go? We know now that only a paltry $500.00 went to the intended recipient - who got the rest?
