IN TODAY'S EZINE: An Internet scam in Goa... and did you believe you could
earn ten thousand rupees from just typing in a few names and numbers into a
computer hooked to the Net.... Goa is currently seeing fruit and wine
festivals. Summer's here, and so are the fruits! Can a Goan team win the
national football league?

INTERNET SCAM AFFECTS thousands of Goa investors. Salient Online, a
Chennai-based network, sold many Goan youngsters that they could
earn upto Rs 10,000 per month by just typing in a few names and
numbers via the Internet. Over the past few months, one could see
several dozen youth, sitting behind cybercafe terminals, keying in
Western-sounding names and numbers. Each had to pay Rs 3000 to get
an 200 names to type in each day. Many thought of buying multiple
accounts, to earn a decent 'wage' each month.

On Friday, investors reaching the company's office at the Unitech
City Centre in downtown Panjim were shocked to find the office
closed and the website not functioning. There was no news of the CEO
Rajesh Sunder. Police said they sent a team to arrest Sunder in
Chennai. They claimed Sunder had duped his "employees" of between Rs
70 to 90 crores (Rs 700-900 million), Herald reports. But details
figures or a break-up were not available.

Some 500 individuals gathered outside the company office in Panjim
and Herald says "tens of thousands" of Goans had invested, and faced
a bleak future. Reports said the fury of the crowd was so much that
the angry mob broke into the locked office, damaged five computers
and scattered files in search of cash that was to be repaid to them.
Police said they were acting on a complaint of Ashley Afonso of
Quepem. See http://www.salientonline.net

GONE GOA: Defaulting operators may cripple Goa charter market, warns
Gomantak Times. It reports that a second operator "joins the default
queue" after the Transhow honcho dies. Earlier reports cited the
suicide of a prominent Russian charter operator, who owed 5-7 crores
of rupees to Goa. (GT)

o Panjim-based Anthony Lobo, known as 'Dr' Tony, was arrested for
molestation and unnatural sexual offences around 11.30 pm on May 5.(H)
Residents at Nirancal, Bethoda punctured the tyres of a garbage truck
and man-handled the crew, protesting the garbage dumping in their area.GT
o Convict Maruti Tirumali, 40, originally from Belgaum, jumped to his
death at the Aguada jail. (GT)
o South Goa electoral officer to act tough against code violations. (H)
o Goa Congress elects 5 vice-presidents and treasurer un-opposed. The
VPs are Jitendra Deshprabhu, MK Sheikh, Domnic Fernandes, Agnel
Fernandes and Dr Wilfred Mesquita. Moti Desai has been elected treasurer.H
o Parrikar to blame for the Goa Common Entrance Text mess (for admission
to professional colleges), alleges Pratapsing Rane. (H)
o Vasco police nab 10 sex workers. (H)
o Konkani books in Roman script dwindling, says Tomazinho Cardozo. (H)
o Transport Department suspends licenses of two motor driving schools. (H)

face competitive exams. (NT)
o Frequent overflow of underground sewage irks Baina residents. (NT)
o Soulmate, from Shillong, performs live at Sweet Chilli, Sinquerim.

TIPS FROM THE KONKAN FRUIT FEST: Did you know that a ripe banana
could be used for preventing wrinkles, pimples and softening skin?
And that coconut milk applied all over the scalp and massaged into
the hair roots is beneficial in the treatment of hair loss? For more
beauty and health tips, visit the Konkan Fruit Fest, underway till
Sunday (May 8) evening opposite the Old GMC Heritage Building. Some
12 students of the Carmel College under lecturer Suvarna Fonseca e
Antao came out with these little-known facts. H

ONE MAN POST OFFICE AT POMBURPA: When he's not sweeping the premises,
he collects letters, sells stamps, handles transactions, and
maintains registers, before travelling all over Pomburpa to deliver
mail. In short, Rashikant Adfadkar (38) of Pomburpa happens to be
the postmaster, postman and peon at the Pomburpa Post Office.
Rashikant has been alone ever since the branch postmaster left
Pomburpa PO on February 22. (Melvyn Misquita in Herald)

IN TODAY'S EZINE: An Internet scam in Goa... and did you believe you could
earn ten thousand rupees from just typing in a few names and numbers into a
computer hooked to the Net.... Goa is currently seeing fruit and wine
festivals. Summer's here, and so are the fruits! Can a Goan team win the
national football league?

INTERNET SCAM AFFECTS thousands of Goa investors. Salient Online, a
Chennai-based network, sold many Goan youngsters that they could
earn upto Rs 10,000 per month by just typing in a few names and
numbers via the Internet. Over the past few months, one could see
several dozen youth, sitting behind cybercafe terminals, keying in
Western-sounding names and numbers. Each had to pay Rs 3000 to get
an 200 names to type in each day. Many thought of buying multiple
accounts, to earn a decent 'wage' each month.

On Friday, investors reaching the company's office at the Unitech
City Centre in downtown Panjim were shocked to find the office
closed and the website not functioning. There was no news of the CEO
Rajesh Sunder. Police said they sent a team to arrest Sunder in
Chennai. They claimed Sunder had duped his "employees" of between Rs
70 to 90 crores (Rs 700-900 million), Herald reports. But details
figures or a break-up were not available.

Some 500 individuals gathered outside the company office in Panjim
and Herald says "tens of thousands" of Goans had invested, and faced
a bleak future. Reports said the fury of the crowd was so much that
the angry mob broke into the locked office, damaged five computers
and scattered files in search of cash that was to be repaid to them.
Police said they were acting on a complaint of Ashley Afonso of
Quepem. See http://www.salientonline.net

GONE GOA: Defaulting operators may cripple Goa charter market, warns
Gomantak Times. It reports that a second operator "joins the default
queue" after the Transhow honcho dies. Earlier reports cited the
suicide of a prominent Russian charter operator, who owed 5-7 crores
of rupees to Goa. (GT)

ONE MAN POST OFFICE AT POMBURPA: When he's not sweeping the premises,
he collects letters, sells stamps, handles transactions, and

the postmaster, postman and peon at the Pomburpa Post Office.

earn ten thousand rupees from just typing in a few names and numbers into a
computer hooked to the Net.... Goa is currently seeing fruit and wine
festivals. Summer's here, and so are the fruits! Can a Goan team win the
national football league?

INTERNET SCAM AFFECTS thousands of Goa investors. Salient Online, a
Chennai-based network, sold many Goan youngsters that they could
earn upto Rs 10,000 per month by just typing in a few names and
numbers via the Internet. Over the past few months, one could see
several dozen youth, sitting behind cybercafe terminals, keying in
Western-sounding names and numbers. Each had to pay Rs 3000 to get
an 200 names to type in each day. Many thought of buying multiple
accounts, to earn a decent 'wage' each month.

On Friday, investors reaching the company's office at the Unitech
City Centre in downtown Panjim were shocked to find the office
closed and the website not functioning. There was no news of the CEO
Rajesh Sunder. Police said they sent a team to arrest Sunder in
Chennai. They claimed Sunder had duped his "employees" of between Rs
70 to 90 crores (Rs 700-900 million), Herald reports. But details
figures or a break-up were not available.

Some 500 individuals gathered outside the company office in Panjim
and Herald says "tens of thousands" of Goans had invested, and faced
a bleak future. Reports said the fury of the crowd was so much that
the angry mob broke into the locked office, damaged five computers
and scattered files in search of cash that was to be repaid to them.
Police said they were acting on a complaint of Ashley Afonso of
Quepem. See http://www.salientonline.net
