Meet Bill and Barbara Z.

A married couple, both dentists, who got into Scientology via WISE.

Video Interview


These two dentists from the Chicago area were defrauded by WISE and demanded a refund from the Church of Scientology. Expecting trouble in their attempt to get their money back from Scientology, they called on LMT Media's producer, Mark Bunker, to fly to Chicago to do a video interview with them.

Needless to say, Scientology heavily objected to the presence of Mr. Bunker. While standing on a public sidewalk filming the dentists as they entered the Church of Scientology of Chicago building, two uniformed, off-duty police officers hired by Scientology arrested Mark on bogus criminal trespassing charges. A costly and time-consuming lawsuit against Mark ensued based on trumped-up charges of criminal trespassing - complete with several affidavits written by "eye-witnesses" who are known to work for Scientology's Office of Special Affairs. Mark was inevitably acquitted of all charges in that lawsuit.

Mysteriously, the video tape which contained the original interview with the dentists as well as the bogus trespassing incident disappeared from Mark's camera after it was confiscated by those off duty police officers working for Scientology. However, Mark did do another video interview with the dentists before leaving Chicago - and they talk about their experiences in Scientology as well as the bogus arrest of our producer in that video.

Before the trial began, they settled their claim with Scientology but as a condition to receiving that refund, were forced to sign a "gag order" which in essence meant that they could no longer speak publicly about Scientology in derogatory terms. However, the video interview was shot before their gag order so their story can continue to be told.

They also were able to act as witnesses at Mark Bunker's trial and, in a court of law were able to speak the truth about what had happened to them and also made it clear to the jury that Scientology orchestrated Mark's arrest to keep him from recording the outrageous story of fraud they had to tell.
