Dear Counsel, We need your help. We find ourselves in a bizarre and unfair predicament because we are considered as enemies by the Church of Scientology, which has targeted us with a campaign of harassment. This would be of no official concern to you, except for the fact that Scientology is misusing our local governmental agencies as unwitting participants in the harassment. We are sure that you would not approve of such activity. We are former Scientologists who have spoken out about what we consider to be abuses within Scientology. More importantly, however, we are solid, law-abiding, taxpaying citizens of Los Angeles. We have a successful fine-art dealership and we live in a lovely home in a respectable neighborhood. By any objective measure, we should be of no concern to our local authorities. We obey the law and want to be left in peace. To our distress, the Scientologists are wasting the time and resources of local law enforcement personnel with completely false reports of illegal activity at our home. We receive unexpected, unnerving visits from inspectors, who find absolutely nothing wrong and that their time has been wasted. We want to

stress that these officials have behaved politely and sympathetically in their dealings with us, and we do not blame them for being misused by the Scientologists. As strange as it sounds, Scientology operatives have gone door-to-door in our neighborhood, asking our neighbors if they are aware of any illegal or immoral activity going on at our home. This ploy has failed because our neighbors know that we are good people, and that these inquiries are so sleazy. Having failed to dig up any dirt on us, the Scientologists have begun making completely false reports to our local agencies, such as: A false report to the Los Angeles City Clerks office, accusing us of operating an illegal boarding house. We live in a nice, single-family home. We do not have boarders or operate a boarding house. This would be no different than if you were accused of such a thing. A false report to the Los Angeles County Public Health Department, claiming that our home is infested with vermin and filled with animal droppings rats scurrying around our house, and pet birds depositing their waste everywhere! Aside from being false, this allegation is embarrassing and insulting. A false report to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Los Angeles, alleging mistreatment of our valuable exotic birds. As the uniformed officer saw, our birds are cherished pets kept in excellent conditions.

As citizens, and as the innocent victims of these malicious reports, we are outraged at the Scientologists misuse of our local government. Of course, you will ask how we know that these reports came from Scientology operatives. The easiest proof is to compare the false report with the following attack website sponsored by the Church of Scientology:

Sadly, these are all classic Scientology harassment tactics that waste taxpayer dollars and the time of City and County employees. We are most anxious to put an end to this harassment and we are fully prepared to cooperate with your offices and participate in any way in the investigation of this matter. We would be most appreciative if you could notify your various City and County departments with enforcement obligations that complaints received concerning either of us, Karen de la Carrier or Jeffrey Augustine, or our residence at 1935 N. Serrano Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90027, are suspect and may be part of a pattern and practice of harassment fostered by the Church of Scientology. Anything you can do to help us would be appreciated. Please do not hesitate to have any members of your staff contact us direction. We may be reached at the following telephone number and email addresses:
