Ron Hubbard, the founder of the Church of Scientology, The first, promoted by the Church, is that he was an unfailingly honest, generous humanitarian whose profound insights have transformed the world. The second, propounded in its fullest form in Bare-Faced Messiah by Russell Miller, is that he was a pathological liar, a fraud consumed by greed and paranoia who sucked literally millions of people into an extraordinary fantasy world"

Contest and Sweepstakes Scams (United States Postal Inspection)

"Many companies offer sweepstakes and contests to promote their products and reward their customers. Unfortunately, not all sweepstakes and contests are legitimate. Sweepstakes scammers can contact you via the mail, Internet, and the phone with promises of a prize such as a car, a vacation, or a large sum of money. The scammers will say you need to pay fees to claim your prize. In the end, you could be out hundreds or thousands of dollars with nothing to show for it. If you've unwittingly participated in a scam, report it to the local police and file a report with the Postal Inspectors."
