If you ignore the deceptive names over their entrances, as well as their own reality-inverting black-propaganda, the two absurd, but nonetheless dangerous, organizations which have been most-commonly referred to as the 'Amway Corporation' and the 'Church of Scientology,' are revealed as being essentially-identical. In plain language, they are both examples of outrageous 'Nazi'-style big lies which have been repeated so often, that they have eventually become accepted as the truth by their unquestioning adherents. Fortunately, you can fool some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time (with the notable exception of stupid, and/or lazy, and/or corrupt, government regulators and so-called 'Sociologists of Religion').
Regular readers of Corporate Frauds Watch will remember that, just over two years ago, a couple of French-registered corporate structures, and several of their officers, were convicted of organized fraud and the illegal operation of a pharmacy. You will also recall that these serious criminal convictions were immediately appealed. At that time, I attempted to explain to your free-thinking readers that this protracted French, criminal prosecution was only interesting from the much-wider view-point that the corporate structures in question, were merely two out of countless, expendable front-groups around the world, which have been centrally-controlled from the USA by the self-appointed sovereign leadership of the pernicious/totalitarian cultic organization most-commonly referred to as the 'Church of Scientology.' In reality, these French 'Scientology' corporate-decoys, and their demonstrably-deluded decoy-officers, form part of a world-wide pattern of ongoing, major, racketeering activity (as defined by the US federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, 1970) which now stretches back more than 60 years. Self-evidently, this classic criminogenic labyrinth is neither original nor unique; therefore, it cannot be fully-understood in isolation. It was maliciously set up to prevent, and/or divert, investigation and to isolate the billionaire American bosses of the 'Scientology' mob from liability. The Mafia-style, 'Scientology' edifice, which originally comprised just one corporate structure (registered in the USA as a privately-owned, limited liability, commercial company), was first instigated in the early 1950s by L. Ron Hubbard - a penniless, narcissistic author of comic-book yarns who, on various occasions in the late 1940s, had openly-boasted of his intention to become a millionaire by starting his own 'religion'. However, it would have been far more-accurate for Mr. Hubbard to have declared his clandestine criminal objective of starting his own copy-cat, blame-the-victim closed-market swindle and advance fee fraud, dissimulated as a 'tax-free religion'.
On February 3rd, 2012, after carefully-examining the evidence, a French Appeal Court in Paris, upheld the conviction against 'Scientology's' two French front-groups and their evidently-psychotic officers.

Your free-thinking readers will observe that, when it became apparent that the French Appeal Court was going to reject the so-called 'Scientologists' steadfast pretence that their unlawful enterprise was perfectly lawful, because the effectively-valueless 'self-betterment' wampum, which they had been peddling to vulnerable individuals for tens of thousands of Euros, was religious (even though the abusive 'Scientology' fairytale has never been recognised as a religion in the secular French Republic), they continued to demonstrate their dissociation from external reality by flouncing out of the legal proceedings and posing as the victims of religious intolerance
