In the "Exes speaking out" thread, there is a link to a video interview set (3 total, I think) by a former Big Cheese Big Boss of Narconon.

No, but I noticed Mary Rieser, the head of narconon of Georgia was at the last Sandy Springs rezoning meeting, and she looked really, really tired.  Even more so than usual.

I remember Susan, the old DSA in the Atl org - she usually looked tired too. I suspect this is endemic to org management and staff. Sleep deprivation is like a standard tool for keeping people suppressed.

Hmm. I wonder if mentioning Narconon in the same paragraph as Michael Jackson will increase visibility of these spam-a-lot articles?

Linking NarCONon to MJ will probably backfire as well, as everyone I know is completely tired of the non-stop news coverage about his death.

There has been an amicable resolution of any dispute that we had with Narconon. The lawsuit we filed is being dismissed. The matter is considered by all parties fully closed.

So, I guess there was a settlement of some kind which would lead one to believe that Narconon had something to fear from a lawsuit.

Pure speculation on my part.

I wish you well in the future.  I can't blame you if you had to sign a gag agreement to get your money back, and it sounds like you did - that's a lot of money to lose.  Your previous words will remain on the internet for others to find, and hopefully, warn some of them away from narCONon.  Thanks for stopping by and letting us know it's over.

I'll just include this link, in case anyone's not familiar with your case and wants to read up on it:

Is the the lawsuit you're referring to, Mr. and Mrs. Locatelli?

Thank you for putting the information out there, before you were silenced.  You may have signed an agreement, but I haven't.   :)

Unbelievable reading; the Locatellis were lied to from the moment of their very first phone contact with the counterfeit 'volunteer'. These fraud artists did not even admit to being Narconon until they had the $7,000 deposit payment in their bank account.

I truly hope these victims got a HUGE settlement from those crooks.

I'm new here. This is my 1st post.

Anyway, Narconon is a Scientology spawned organization.
They can't deny this with any credibility.
I was on staff at a mission when they came in with a guy with his "success story".

Welcome, programmer_guy!  I'm glad you came.

I agree that looking from the point of view of scientology --> narconon, the connection is easy to see, but when you're a desperate parent/spouse/sibling/concerned person seeking a drug rehab for your loved one, narconon has so covered the web that they are top on any search, and the connection is not so apparent.

Did the "success story" sound genuine, or coerced?
