would go to hell because of the story written in the newspaper. Manzoor Memon in his comments
stated that Farooq Samad is responsible for major financial frauds and now has the guts to scare
honest people like him. It is strange that after 7 years of prison term Farooq Samad has not been
rehabilited and has no remorse for his illegal actions and has already started a new mortgage com-
pany with his daughters working on the front. Keep in mind that Farooq was arrested and sent to
jail for major financial frauds and now he is back in business and ready to hit the innocent victims.
FBI and other agencies have been notified of his new location at 6666 Harwin Suite 500 from
where he has started his activities again. When Asked Manzoor Memon as to why he wrote such
old story he stated that after Farooq’s arrival in town very prominent Memon businessmen held a
luncheon in his honor at Royal restaurant as if he has come back after performing Hajj. The biggest
problem we see in our community is that we are still not ready to discourage criminals and give
