I was a student at the Elmira Mission of the Church of Scientology from 1978 to 1981. During that time I purchased and was not allowed to complete five (5) courses. What happened was, I would pay for and start a course. Shortly into it I would be told that it was the wrong course. I would then be told that I had to buy a different course and complete it before I could continue the first course. This happened five times. The courses were; Happiness Rundown, PTS/SP course, Dianetics, Personal Ethics and Integrity, and the Method 1 co-audit.
I was never allowed to finish any of these courses. In 1981 when Harry Palmer suspended my wife, Carmen, I was called into the Mission and given an ultimatum. I was told that if I stayed married to Carmen I could no longer have services at the Mission. I, of course, chose to stay married. The total cost of these undelivered courses is about $5500. This was money that I paid for services and never received. I was never given a refund or allowed to complete the courses.
