The fraudulent activity was only detected after Mr Sheahans bank, Westpac, noticed $100,000 of the original amount had been electronically transferred back into another account. SEVERAL iconic locations including Mindil Beach, East Point and Doctors Gully could be given a second official name, recognising the Territorys indigenous history. Under a Territory-wide scheme, the three landmarks along with Vesteys Beach, Lameroo Beach, Dudley Point, OFerrals Rock and Port War (the cove between Dudley Point and East Point) could be given a dual name under the proposal, as Uluru/Ayers Rock is named. Darwin Council approved eight icons at their fortnightly meeting last week and Lord Mayor Kon Vatskalis said it tion included in the project. Its important to our well being that were not left behind in what other indigenous people are doing, he said. The place names committee will begin consultation with Larrakia Nation and other land councils on preferred names and priorities. Larrakia Nation chairman Richard Fejo is glad several Darwin icons could be recognised by their indigenous names Picture: KERI MEGELUS Recognition for Larrakia names was a great idea. Were living in a place where people were living before we got here in the 1800s and I think its a sign of recognition and the people who lived here, the Larrakia people, he said. I cant see why we cant have two names, one is the European name, one is Larrakia. Lake Alexander was proposed to be the ninth landmark but council decided it wasnt appropriate given it wasnt a historical or natural landmark and had only been made in the 1990s. But Mr Vatskalis said council would be happy to endorse the name if Larrakia Nation wished. If the Larrakia people can provide us with an argument as to why it should be named, like it was built on top of a traditional ground then council will consider it, he said. Larrakia Nation chairman Richard Fejo said it was good to see the indigenous culture acknowledged. Im very happy the Larrakia people are uniting and finding conformity, they are united in what the meaning of these words mean, he said. I also think it shows a response to the first people of this land and its a good step towards reconciliation the end result is it will help us move forward as people. Mr Fejo said it was good to see Darwin and Larrakia Na WILL ZWAR Civic reporter Bail for man extradited A man who faced a Sydney court over alleged fraud offences dating back almost 20 years has been granted bail. Robert Melvin, 44, was extradited from Melbourne to face Parramatta Bail Court yesterday. Police allege that in July 1999, a fraudulent loan application was sent to a bank and approved for $20,000. Its also alleged that in April 2000, the accused man was in possession of car keys believed to be stolen. He has been granted bail and ordered to face the Downing Centre Sydney on May 24. L E G E N D A R Y f o o t b a l l commentator Mike Sheahan remains $40,000 out of pocket after he fell victim to a sophisticated scam nearly 10 months ago. The 72-year-old grandfather made an online transfer of $147,000 to his daughter Kate, 37, in July only to get a call three days later that left him shell shocked. He was alerted by his bank, Westpac, there was suspicious activity relating to the large transaction he had made. He believed he was transferring funds to Kate but it is understood through an elaborate scam someone had managed to intercept an email conversation Mr Sheahan was having with his eldest daughter, Lizzie, 40 explaining where the money needed to be moved to. The cyber stuff is foreign to people who are my age, Mr Sheahan said. Cyber crime to me is like science fiction, Im too old to understand how all this happens. I had hoped the system would have protected me better and it hasnt. Consequently he had transferred the funds into the hands of a scammer holding a Commonwealth Bank Sheahan victim of 21st century banking scam Mike Sheahan is plenty poorer ICONIC PLACES -- Lameroo Beach - Mindil Beach - Vesteys Beach - Port War - Doctors Gully - OFerrals Rock - Dudley Point - East Point
