A new hoax/rumour is on the air stating that a number 777888999 is probably a death number and can explode your phone if it rings you. Well, Please stop believing such stupid hoaxes and NO! It wont explode, Oh God!
Recently, A message has been circulating warning people that answering a phone call from a specific mobile number may set their handset on fire and render them dead. According to the message, answering a call from the number 777888999 could prove fatal, because answering the call will make your phone explode which is not going to happen.
Facebook pages and family WhatsApp groups have been abuzz with texts like:
“URGENT ? pl don’t attend any Call of mob no …777888999….if u attend. Call your mobile will blast …..pl share to your friends …,” and “Savdhaan ish No.777888999 Se call aya toh utana nhi, nhi toh ye aapke akhri call b hosakta hain”.
To be specific, the number, according to a Truecaller search, belongs to “Don’t Receive Virus”. Pretty ominous, right? Of course it is not a verified number, and it is listed under “tax agency” (haha) and has been reported by 77,573 people.
First and foremost, nine digit mobile numbers do not exist in India. Of course it can be an international number, but phone numbers can’t make your ordinary phone explode. So stop making this rumour a viral thing and scaring other people too. Also, I wonder if someone really owns it, How many nightmares we would be getting himself every night!
