HOW I GOT MY LOVELY GIRLFRIEND BACK AFTER A LONG WHILE


Each time I recall how I got my girlfriend back and better for real, it gladdens my heart with beautiful thoughts of all that transpired all thanks to Dr. Odinani Owelle who did it all with a spell cast I hardly believe in and being that it was the first time I ever tried it out.
How it all happened, I lost a relationship I value with every bit of my life because I cheated on my girlfriend and she caught me, even though I did not get involved with the other girl in question, my girlfriend did not bother considering that because she was angry about me ever conceiving such thought in my heart, she decided to give up a long time relationship for just that. The quarrel lingered for quite sometime until I can across a post that looks more like a testimony online and thought of giving it a trial of which I am now the one testifying of the goodness and awesome help I got from Dr. Odinani Owelle
In less than three damn days, my girlfriend did return to me and things have being awesome and our relationship has being blazing since then. I really wanna use this testimonial note of mine to reaching to broken homes and relationships to get the same help I did get from this wonderful Doctor. Just reach out to him for any case or troubles. Contact Him on his email address odinanisolutioncentre@gmail.com He is the hope of life, his spell cast is so real.

New Senior Scam

8/11/2016 2:15pm

A new senior scam involves a phone call from someone claiming to be from the Kent County Probate Court claiming they are going to be in the area and want to stop by to talk about preparing a Will.  The Kent County Probate Court is warning residents that they never send people out to do Wills or to conduct any type of investigation without a court order.  

If you receive a call from someone claiming to be from the Kent County Probate Court with the scam above, please hang up immediately and contact your local law enforcement to report the incident.

As a reminder, never give out any personal information such a social security numbers, Medicare/Medicaid details, or financial accounts over the phone to someone unless you initiated the phone call.
