Silkin Management Group: Oregon Scientology Front

Discussion in 'CoS Front Groups' started by NailsPDX, Nov 15, 2008.

  1. You're very welcome, Dr. Feel free to reach me if you have any questions on WISE (World Institute of Scientology Enterprises) consulting groups.
  2. Show where, dude? This thread is on first page googling "silkin management group." And frankly, any Dr. who fails to do this should question his common sense. Especially when $30K is at stake.

    And a question from 2008 gets an answer! Bwahahaha! (Time for another rename?)

  4. Thank you for you site.

    When I got my call today from the Practice Solutions, I asked if they were a Scientology front like Sterling Management. She told me "no" before the interview and again "no" prior to passing me to the next person to pitch me on the 1 hour free consultation, and a final assurance that they were not Scientology before the end of the pitch.

    Your site save me my time and who know what else.

    I guess I will always be a OT1

  5. Warn your peers.
  6. I work for a veterinary practice. The owner just signed a deal with VPS or veterinary practice solutions. The owner is attending all these weird meeting for hours at a time...the teachings are unorganized and make no sense. The staff is panicking. We are not into this Scientology sh1t and we are scared with how unstable the owner (who is/was a good veterinarian but a horrible manager) has become. My resume is out. I hope I can leave this ship before it sinks.

    How can such a smart person become so stupid overnight?
  7. Do you have an actual question?

  9. I am a practice manager for a Veterinary Office, our owner/ Dr. is very naive. She signed on the dotted line without consulting me first. Bottom line , after spending nearly $15,000 the only thing we have to show for our money are 3 nice books/manuals, a trip to Portland to meet with our personal consultant and an organizational board that would make any executive with "Apple or Amazon say "huh"!!! There is nothing that I learned that you cant get online for free or from practice managements books that run no more than $150 to 300 . I found them very nice but extremely odd. They are all about actual facts, and data and the bottom line. It is very, very black and white with no delineation or variance. Once I did my home work and found out more about Scientology it made complete sense how they run there business. They had it set up that we earned dollars towards future services if we gave them a good reference or referred them to other practices. I was very clear that I would never ever ever give them another red cent.

    Veterinarians are targets of WISE "consulting" rackets.
    Ask ex-sci Donna Shannon how a scienazi "cleared" her veterinary practice of cash assets and ran when it was about to collapse.
  11. These people are extremely aggressive. I called just to inquire about Sterling’s practice management services, and the representative persuaded me to allow them to send some brochures and a DVD. They overnight mailed everything, then called to confirm that I had received them. They asked me to make sure my husband (who is not affiliated with veterinary medicine, but is in the construction industry) to review the information and the DVD with me, and follow a certain order over the next 3 days. She then asked for me to set up a meeting with one of their field agents(?) at my practice for two days later. I told her we could not do it because we were leaving town on Saturday, and she insisted that we make it Friday.
    By this point, my husband had identified L Ron Hubbard in the video, yanked out the DVD and immediately thrown it in the burn pile outside. (We are Christians and he did not want any occult material in our home). I decided that I would string them along just to see how desperate they really were, so I agreed to meet with the agent on Friday at 6p for a 5 HOUR meeting, which my husband was absolutely required to attend with me.
    So here we are 4 days after I had initially inquired about Sterling, already committed to congregate into the wee hours of Friday night with these people. So my husband got pretty agitated that I was still toying with these weirdos, and made me call and cancel the meeting. Unsurprisingly, the lady reminded me that I had obligated myself 2 days before and told me that they had already purchased the plane ticket and rented a car. This time I got angry and told her that they were not welcome here and would be arrested for tresspsssing if they showed up, and that if I had indeed broken my commitment that I would need to know the amount of money spent by sterling and a mailing address, so that I would overnight a check to them for that amount, with the clear understanding that they will stay away from us. I asked if her company was associated with a religious organization, to which she replied “no”. I’d never felt so pressured to do anything before, and to this day I haven’t since.
  12. Yes, they are agressive in selling their services, Rainsville. It's part of the Scientology training they sell. Glad you and your husband stood up to their bullying sales tactics.

    ALWAYS do a thorough internet background search BEFORE contacting any 'management' group, Scientology based or not.

    When searching, use quotation marks around the name, and then scroll through multiple pages of results to get a balance of reviews, comments and information

    Search the principal owner's name, using " " as well, looking for pros and cons.

    Give your hysband a hand for being informed
