    contacted him and he asked me not to bother
    myself that all my problems are over. I was happy to hear such words, he told me to
    buy some items, though I couldn’t find the items myself he asked me to send down
    the money to buy the items for me,
    faithfully I sent him the money he bought the items and prepared a cure
    for me. He told me that he is going to send the cure through courier delivery
    service, I paid to the courier delivery service, then, I got the cure, he instructed
    me on how I will take the cure. I took the cure and I was freed from the Hepatitis
    disease, I went for scanning, the Virus was no longer there. I am very grateful
