A month or more ago, someone posted pictures that they'd found on Rense of someone named Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira who claimed to be abducted by
UFOs (someone was chortling over the "burned image" of the body on the bedsheet). Urandir's story was basically that in the 2-day period he was
"abducted" he wastaken to a "special intergalactic meeting with 49 alien races (including some people from The Great White Fraternity (yes,
really)) and a representative of God Himself" (the Pope? (just kidding)).
Urandir claimed that he was the only person from Earth present at that meeting (that leaves the Pope out) and that he was given a "special mission"
for the next years.
But UFO researchers in Brazil found some holes in this and former stories (including the one where you were to buy a piece of this little farm. It
was divided into 6,000 plots of land, and all were sold (perhaps more than once) sold to thousands of people who believed that by buying the land they
would be safe from the Armageddon holocaust and under the protection of Urandir and his "cosmic brothers".
Anyway, the Brazilian UFO community has put out a hoax alert on this guy, and the US community is starting to believe the reports that Urandir is
basically a scammer out to steal others' money.
