“100,000 yuan to cure cancer. As quickly as ten days but now later than twenty days. If you have faith, you will be saved.” A fifty-ish illiterate rural woman who has never been in school for a single day went by the title “Little Goddess.”
She claimed to be the sister of Jesus and was sent by “God” to “heal people from ailments.” The healing method is to ask God to bless the mineral water and drink it according to schedule. Each cancer patient is charged 100,000 yuan. On October 12, the police received complaints from citizens.
After almost one month of investigation, the police took action on November 10 and arrested the self-proclaimed sister of Jesus named Zhou at an private villa on Taiping Street in Minzhong town, Zhongshan city, Guangdong province.
