If you are here, you are in the right place.
In another forum, I was contacted by a member, from Nepal, called Bibek Adhikari- I may have misspelled the surname, I now have no way to check. He has started a business selling DAA;s and wanted me to like his page.
I objected to his calling it Fix Hep C at one click, to try and deceive people searching the web or facebook. We had some discussion- he told me the name wasn't similar and that he had permission from James Freeman to use it. This is not true, he then tried to discredit Greg Jefferys to me, bad move. So I am going to have to waste my time warning people about this. Can I please ask other people, whenever you see that page pop up- make a comment, this is not the authentic Fixhepc.
He may be trading perfectly well, but I wouldn't buy meds off someone starting out with dishonesty, trading on others credibility.

Here's another site using the "Fix Hep C" phrasing. This one is actually for a legitimate purpose, but you'd think they could come up with original wording.

You couldn't begrudge them the use of it.

Looks like a great initiative.
YMMV
