Scientology’s Social Media Fraud Campaign Tries to Defeat Google Reverse Imaging

Critics using Google reverse imaging were able to conclusively prove that the Church of Scientology was using stock photos in its social media fraud campaign. Scientology tried to palm these stock photos off on social media as being actual Scientologists. As we reported yesterday, alert critics caught Scientology using a photo of the Russian actress Valery Fedorovich in yet another social media fraud. Fedorovich’s photo was used with the name of Alicia Selverson. Scientology was caught red-handed trying to change images of its phony Alicia Selverson.

Scientology’s STAND League is awash in this sort fraud and has no zero integrity as a result. The message STAND hopes to communicate gets totally lost at the outset when STAND is caught in such blatant social media fraud: The public doesn’t believe liars. Thus, Scientology has painted itself into a corner. If Scientology is lying about the stock photos then the presumption is that it is lying about everything else. Moreover, it’s hard for Scientology to claim discrimination when it engages in fraud; child labor; Fair Game; Disconnection; refuses to issue repayments as it promised the IRS; and uses contracts of adhesion to strip its own members of their legal and civil rights.

Scientology critic “Succulent Duck” reported today in the comments section of Tony Ortega’s Underground Bunker that Scientology used “a new paint job” on Alicia Selverson. Anyone can immediately spot this as Scientology using Photoshop filters on the original photo of “Alicia Selverson.” The doctored stock photo is shown below.

The use of filters is clearly an attempt by Scientology to defeat Google reverse images. It won’t work OSA. Throw down your weapons of fraud and surrender. You’re surrounded by the internet!

Justin Templer Sr. commented on Twitter on another Scientology attempt to defeat Google reverse images:


Update: Rodger Dodger just tweeted me that Scientology has used a filter on fake Scientologist Rebecca Blair, this in an attempt to defeat Google reverse imaging:

Scientology Caught in Yet More Social Media Fraud! It Never Ends!

Ron Miscavige interviewed Leah Remini this past Sunday. It was a tremendous interview. Part of the interview focused on Shelly Miscavige, the missing wife of Scientology dictator David Miscavige.

Shelly has not been seen in public for at least ten years and is presumed to be locked away in a Scientology facility. David Miscavige controls the $100 million dollar Scientology TV network and so it’s not like it would be any work for him to do a half hour piece on Shelly to address the controversy once and for all. If David Miscavige put Shelly on Scientology TV then the problem over Shelly’s disappearance would be solved once and for all. This begs the question: Why doesn’t David Miscavige want his wife Shelly to be seen on Scientology TV or anywhere else for that matter? What is he hiding?

Scientology’s Office of Special Affairs got very mad about Ron and Leah’s interview as did David Miscavige. Accordingly, OSA dive-bombed on the YouTube comments to the podcast. Another hysteria of rage by David Miscavige.

Even after being totally exposed for social media fraud and the use of Stock Photo Scientologists, OSA trotted out the imaginary Scientologist named Alicia Selverson once again. This time, however, OSA used a different stock photo:


The previous version of Alicia Selverson looked like this:

The new Alicia Selverson is actually the Russian actress and screenwriter Valery Fedorovich:

David Miscavige and OSA are engaging in identity theft and conspiracy to commit online fraud. I truly hope Valery Fedorovich sues David Miscavige and Scientology in Russia for damages. It would also be great to see Russia criminally charge David Miscavige and Scientology for using a Russian citizen to perpetrate Scientology’s social media fraud.

The IRS has been notified of yet another example of Scientology using tax exempt dollars to commit social media fraud. Scientology’s tax exemption must be revoked. Please sign my petition calling for the IRS to open an investigation to revoke Scientology’s tax exemption.

If you have already signed it, I thank you for your support.

Fake Stock Photo Scientologists Support Taryn Teutsch’s Fake News Attack on Mike Rinder

“Alicia Selverson” is not a real person. Rather, the image is actually a stock photo the Church of Scientology purchased to create a fake Scientologist on social media.

Scientology critics exposed Scientologist “Alicia Selverson” as a fake person in 2017. Scientology’s Office of Special Affairs purchased numerous stock photos and pretended these were real Scientologists who were members of OSA’s equally fake STAND League. What OSA didn’t count on was Google reverse imaging. This allowed critics to download images of STAND members and discover these people to be stock photos.

Scientology was caught and exposed for using fake people in a social media fraud. One notable example was fake Scientologist and STAND member “Ellis Craig.” This “Scientologist” turned out to be the male model Gert Rappenecker whose image is for sale as a stock photo:

See our article on fake “stock photo Scientologists” and media fraud: Scientology Doubles Down on its Tax-Exempt Social Media Fraud

The Church of Scientology withdrew its fake stock photo Scientologists from Twitter when it was caught and exposed for fraud. However, Scientology is back to its social media fraud once again. The fraud was caught when Mike Rinder’s daughter Taryn Teutsch posted on her Facebook account about her visit to Walt Disney Studios. This was Taryn’s way of saying that she had gotten a visit at the Disney Company to lodge a bogus complaint about her father.

We covered Taryn Teutsch’s deliberate lies about her father in our previous article Scientology Sea Org Member Taryn Teutsch Engaging in Fake News to Attack Leah Remini’s Show & Her Father Mike Rinder.

The fake stock photo Scientologist Alicia Selverson — and another fake Scientologist named Jason Hammond — appeared in Taryn’s comments section to congratulate her on meeting a Disney executive:

Given that Taryn Teutsch lied about her father assaulting her mother Cathy Bernardini in 2010 — and the Sheriff’s report bears this out — we must ask what else Taryn is lying about. Did she actually get a meeting with a Disney executive? We hardly think so given that Taryn and OSA used two fake stock photo Scientologists to congratulate her on the alleged meeting. If Taryn had a real meeting she could have easily had real publicly known Scientologists congratulate her. The comically inept Scientology Twitter duo of John Alex Wood and his fiancee Gemma come to mind.

Taryn Teutsch and the Church of Scientology can lie all they want — and Scientology lies as the central principle of its own existence — but the internet will most assuredly find and expose their lies. Lying is ingrained in the DNA of Scientology. L. Ron Hubbard taught his PR people to “effectively outflow false data.” For this reason, nothing Scientology says can be believed and Taryn Teutsch is proving this in the course of her Fake News Fair Game campaign of lies against her own father.

Fake Scientologist Jonas Hammond congratulated Taryn Teutsch on her meeting with a Disney exec. Here is fake Scientologist Jonas Hammond as shown on his Facebook page. Judging by his hard and fixed Scientology death stare he surely must be an OTVIII:


NB: OSA took down Jonas’ biker photo from his FB page immediately after I posted it here. OSA’s artless fuckery and use of fake identities show its incompetence in the world of social media.
