Hello,

My name is Be Scofield and I'm one of the most prominent writers exposing cults and abusive gurus. I have shut down several abusive cult like groups and delegitimized many other ones. In 2018 alone my articles have received almost 700,000 views and coverage of my stories has been seen by millions. My work has been reported on by The Guardian and The Daily Mail and dozens of publications in over 35 countries.

This work is very important. I believe it is saving lives. Many readers have told me so. Writing and researching an article can take up to 100 hours. I'm an independent journalist outside of mainstream news organizations. This work is dangerous as I live in hiding and don't publish my location. And I'm one of the only people doing this work right now. Your support helps me continue exposing abuse, educating the public about cults and raising awareness about harmful leaders.

In December 2018 I infiltrated Bentinho Massaro's cult and published an article that went viral called "Tech Bro Guru: Inside the Sedona Cult of Bentinho Massaro." In two weeks it got 200,000 views. 18 days after I published he fled Sedona and went into hiding. One of his followers committed suicide 9 days after I published while he was on Bentinho's week long retreat. Barcroft TV produced a 13-minute video on Massaro in September of 2018.

On July 24th, 2018 I exposed a rape and sexual assault scandal at Agama Yoga in Thailand. 4 days after I published, the founder, Swami Vivekananda Saraswati and the other 3 accused teachers fled the island and went into hiding. In September The Guardian ran a front page story about Agama Yoga which got 300,000 views in the first week. Over 50 stories appeared in over 20 countries worldwide. Agama Yoga shut down in September.

I also published a comprehensive examination of the claims by spiritual leader Teal Swan. My article "The Gucci Guru: Inside Teal Swan's Posh Cult" went viral and ended up being covered on the front page of the Daily Mail. It has over 400,000 views.

Other stories include exposes on Padma Aon, Gano Grills, Uma Inder, the California Institute of Integral Studies and the eco-urban farm Ashevillage.
