James Gervais was another victim of the Boston Org. For six years he remained a Scientologist until the criminal activities of the cult were just to much for him to stand any longer. He joined he states, because of promises to raise his IQ, cure diseases and to increase his career potential. Of course Scientology did none of those things.
What disturbed him the most was the practice of going through the supposedly confidential folders of personal information to find things out.
“As a Church member, I became aware of and observed a practice designated “crime culling”, where Church members reviewed auditing files and extracted confidential and intimate experiences and revealed this information to third parties for the purpose of extorting silence, manipulating conduct and depriving legal rights of any person who attempted to leave Scientology.”
