Disturbing PM
« on: September 03, 2006, 11:29:57 AM »
I got this Pm this morn

    HIV Treatment
Sent to: Teresa on: Today at 09:04:53 AM      

Sorry for the condition of your loved partner and also the problem of miscommunication.

We offer HIV treatment for patients who have not yet reached critical stages and I can assure you that our traetment reverses the viral load count and eventually the patient ie negative.

We use specially blended african herbs both oral and injections and our treatment takes 27-45 days.

Feel free to contact me at houseofhope@gawab.com for more info.

Thank you for your time.


Is this guy telling me that he can make hubby HIV-?

This of which I dont belive for a second, but am worried it could give others false hopes.

Did others get this pm too? I have never talked to this guy so I dont know what the hell he is talking about when he talks about miscommunication.

The internet is jam packed with crap like this. I've not received this particular PM but I have had others in the past. Report the account to one of the mods so they can deal with it, would be my suggestion.

Hello Teresa,

Ignore it , report it to the moderators. Also , do not click on the link. There are no medications out there that can make an hiv positive person turn HIV negative. There are only medications that can work at controlling viral load. It is a crock of poop !!

Current Meds ; Viramune, Epzicom, 20mg of Atorvastatin, 25 mg of Hydrochlorothiazide.
Amlodipine Besolate 5mg-- Updated 9/24/2017

Diagnosed positive in 1985,.. In October of 2003, My t-cell count was 16, Viral load was over 500,000, Percentage at that time was 5%. I started on  HAART on October 24th, 2003.

 As of 9/18/2017,  Viral load remains <40
CD 4 @358 /  CD4 % @ 13

Teresa.....whatever you do do NOT respond to a message like that.  I have heard that this type of spam can be from criminals looking to get you to email them so they can exploit your computer address, or worse. Ignore it, report it, but never respond.

This is what I was referring to:
New 419 Scam Promises Cure For HIV/AIDS
July 20, 2006
New 419 Scam Promises Cure For HIV/AIDS
Nigeria 419: The Road to Ruin
Scam Alerts

The latest twist in the Nigerian 419 Scam is an email promising a cure for HIV/AIDS. Computer security experts say its purpose is to trick recipients into revealing personal data.

The emails, which originate from a Yahoo address, claim that the writer has stumbled across an herbal root that miraculously helps AIDS sufferers to recover. It claims that patients with AIDS are no longer HIV positive and asks for help in bringing this discovery to a mainstream market.

Once a recipient has been drawn in, follow up requests are made by the scammer for private information which may lead to requests for money, stolen identities and theft.

Experts at computer security firm SophosLabs say they stopped thousands of messages related to the 419 email scam. 419 relates to a section of the Nigerian penal code, where many of these scams originate.

Most 419 scams involve requests, allegedly by a member of a deposed royal family, to smuggle a fortune to safety in the United States.

Definitely a scam honey...

If some herbs could make us all go from poz to neg, no one would be here.

Everyone is right, report to moderators.
