Dirty Cops and PI’s

We are pleased to announce the launch of our new companion site Dirty Cops and PI’s.

Tagline: A Dedicated News Site Exposing the Shadowy World of Rogue Cops and Private Investigators.

Please check out Dirty Cops and PI’s. While we will continue to focus exclusively on the Church of Scientology here, our new site allows us to report on many of the other stories we encounter in our work as a journalist and a private investigator.

The new site remains committed to the same standards of quality we strive to achieve here at The Scientology Money Project. We thank all of our readers for their support, tips, and insights over the years.

From the Press Release:

LOS ANGELES, October 27, 2021 —, a news website dedicated to exposing the sinister world of crime, corruption, and abuse-of-power, launched today with an eye-opening feature story about newly discovered text messages with racial undertones, allegedly sent by Dan Ribacoff, the polygraph expert from NBCUniversal Media’s The Steve Wilkos Show, and what impact they may have on a racial discrimination complaint filed by former federal prosecutor and attorney Peter Crusco against the New York Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA)….

Jeffrey Augustine, founder and editor of, is an investigative journalist and licensed private investigator, best known for his blog Scientology Money Project. Mr. Augustine has spent the last 11 years investigating and reporting on crimes and related stories ranging from financial fraud to cults and everything in between. “In the course of my investigative work, I’ve run across all kinds of shady characters. Some of the worst include dirty cops, private investigators, and corrupt individuals who abuse their positions of authority and take advantage of helpless victims. The public has the right to know who these bad actors are, and I felt the time was right to launch” said Mr. Augustine.

Our opening lead story at Dirty Cops and PI’s focuses on Dan Ribacoff, a New York City PI whom we reported on previously on this site when his PI’s spied on Leah Remini and sent a chilling text message:

Dirty PI’s from Dan Ribacoff’s International Investigative Group (IIGPI) were hired to spy on actress Leah Remini while she filmed a movie in New York with Jennifer Lopez.

A text messages sent by IIGPI Dirty PI, Yanti “Mike” Greene,  said that “word is they want to kill her.” The “they” is presumably the Church of Scientology. Ribacoff denied the client was Scientology. We consider this dissembling as Scientology hires lawyers to hire PI’s on its behalf.
