From: A. J. Gevaerd - Revista UFO <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Fri, 13 Jun 2003 19:04:36 -0300 Fwd Date: Fri, 13 Jun 2003 22:39:35 -0400 Subject: The Last Open Letter To Linda Moulton Howe To the International UFO Community: To: Linda Moulton Howe <email@example.com> I have just visited Linda Moulton Howe's website: www.earthfiles.com and I noticed that she really has no limits to her absurd campaign of promoting the biggest Brazilian UFO fraud ever, the fabricated abduction of Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira. It is a sad thing. I reached to that conclusion by observing her conduct towards this case today, as did many members of the international UFO community, who sent me e-mail messages. In face of that, up to this point, when nearly everything was tried to show her how poor her investigationis is over that case and how deceiving are her reports, I just give up helping her to see what she refuses to see and tell her what she refuses to hear. It seems just useless and a waste of my time to show to this "investigative reporter" the very single points that she entirely missed when she started this campaign, that she calls an investigation. I don't know what motivates Linda Moulton Howe to keep this up and the risk to her credibility and reputation is all hers. However, in Linda Moulton Howe's report, today, there is a serious accusation coming from her toward me, that needs to be corrected, as it is a lie. While interviewing Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira's business associate, Felipe Castelo Branco, she published: "Felipe Branco, Owner, Fazenda Castelo, Campo Grande, Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil: "One of the allegations is that Urandir Oliveira had two or three bed sheets and Gevaerd is showing the photographs on a website saying, 'Look at the difference in color.' Charlette Le Fevre and Gevaerd are also saying that Urandir Oliveira beat up his first wife. They are saying that he is a crook, that he is guilty of land fraud, that he was put in jail, there is the photograph of Urandir behind bars, that it's been a cult, like a Jim Jones cult...." After reading this statement, to my great surprise, I observed that Linda Moulton Howe implies that I have published, via the Internet, that Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira used to beat his ex- wife. I don't know where she got such information from, so I ran a lot of searches on several websites and found nothing on that matter. I have never published that and even having in my possession a lot of revolting information about Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira's background and personal activities since he was a teenager, I have never published either in the Brazilian UFO Magazine, or the on the internet, any details of what he did to his ex-wife or does to his present wife. It was Linda Moulton Howe, herself, who confirmed over the phone to Charlette LeFreve that Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira beat his ex-wife. I simply don't care about Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira personal life. My function in this situation, as a responsible UFO researcher, is to expose his activities in the UFO field as a total fraud. I have plenty of information from all his activities and there is not a single question about it. And I have always stated, as I will do it as many times as necessary, that when it comes to Ufology, he is a complete phony. I regret that in her blind and deaf campaign to make this fabricated abduction stand as a genuine one, against each and every piece of evidence that shows the contrary, Linda Moulton Howe has come this far. I sincerely hope that she wakes up some day and realizes that, by supporting a hoax such as this, she is hurting not only her reputation and credibility, but also the UFO field as a whole. A. J. Gevaerd, editor Brazilian UFO Magazine PS.: I obviously won't comment about other absurdities published by Linda Moulton Howe in her report today, either coming from her or from her interviewee, Felipe Castelo Branco. Her word means very little to me to this point and his word, as Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira's partner in the outrageous scam, never meant anything at all.
