Subject: The Project Portal Fraud Is Back!

About 15 years ago Brazilian UFO researchers were shocked with
new sensationalistic stories coming from a UFO group called
Project Portal, which soon were seen as inventions and lies, as
such group as clearly identified as a UFO sect. It is known by
everyone in Brazil that the group has a fanatic behavior much
beyond any other known anywhere else in the world. The followers
of this UFO sect believe in their guru 100% and take any single
invented story as a concrete fact without questioning.

In the early 2000 Project Portal leader invented that a UFO
conveniently crashed at their compound, located in a farm in the
state of Mato Grosso do Sul, 600 miles from Sao Paulo. Nothing
could be more hilarious than the "evidences" they presented
to support the extraordinary claim. Just a few months after
that, they came up with another story and their leader, Urandir
Fernandes de Oliveira, invented that he was abducted in his own
bedroom by a beam of light, which included burn signals in a bed
shit and ceiling, all poorly staged to create a dramatic
circumstance and attract more believers.

At that occasion, unexpectedly by the Brazilian UFO Community,
US researcher Linda Moulton Howe came to Brazil to
"evaluate" the case. While here, she contacted no UFO
researcher (all could give her info about the sect and its
leader), spoke to no member of the Brazilian media and yet she
immediately supported that 'case', that now is generally
known and even admitted by several of the sect followers as a
staged fake.

At that time, Brazilian UFO researcher A. J. Gevaerd, editor of
the Brazilian UFO Magazine, had a serious argument with Linda
Moulton Howe about it on the Net. He had been investigating
Project Portal for years and found that every little piece of
their long repertory of stories is nothing but poor inventions,
some ridiculous. Including the faked UFO crash, the faked
abduction supported by LMH and a few other stuff. He was
contacted by her while she was still in the State and spent time
explaining to her what the stories are all about.

Despite that, as Gevaerd tells, she came to Brazil without
letting any of the local UFO researchers aware of that. Even
Gevaerd, who informed her about the sect. And even despite the
fact that he lived in the town where she landed, "just a few
minutes from the airport", he told me, and could go see her as
a courtesy visit, she did not contacted him at all. A. J. quit
investigating and exposing the sect Project Portal and its
leader Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira in 2004, after a second
anonymous life threat he received, but others kept doing so and
kept exposing the hoaxes. They are many.


Now, just recently, Project Portal had been in the media again
in a series of TV programs claiming that now they have an
"exclusive ET" in their compound, an alleged alien that came
thousand of light years to visit the sect and apparently give
his cosmic support to the sect activities. Yes, this is what
they say, believe it or not. They named the alien "Bilu", a
funny and popular name generally given to cats and dogs in
Brazil. The TV crews could film the "exotic alien" and the
footage was first aired and then analyzed by our best image
forensic expert, a scientist from the University of Campinas
always requested to solve serious crime cases. He completely
destroyed the idea that the footage had an ET. And laughed
about. "If that is a ET, then I am a ET too".

Ricardo Molina, whose expertise is worldwidely recognized, said
what all Brazilian UFO researchers knew: the so called alien was
nothing but one of Project Portal=E2=80=99s employees using a helmet
in the dark, faking his voice to look like an "adolescent
alien", because the sect followers believe that Bilu is a
teenager extraterrestrial. Yeah. The whole thing is absolutely
outrageous and ridiculous, and Project Portal is nothing but
deceiving people, and in the most absurd way. Take a look for


Now, the man behind this thing, Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira,
was the same that invented that he was abducted in 2002 and that
a UFO conveniently crashed at his farm, where Project Portal
compound is located and to where thousands of people go every
year looking for healing and "energy" from aliens, of course,
leaving there considerable sums of money. Urandir was the person
so energically supported by LMH.

I just wanted you to know...
