7. I think you are right...
.... back in the late 70s a close friend was approached, along with his wife, by a scientologist. They did the test, and then dude says, you need $300 for the next step. My friend said "hey, I don't have that kind of money laying around" and the dude says "don't you have something you can hock?".

It was at this point that my friend realized this was a scam. He told the dude "no thanks".
