Viral - Will call from Number 777888999 lead to your phone blast - Rumour
Viral Phone Number 777888999 – In the world of social media, each day we come to hear about some viral news or viral pics, and this time a phone number has become viral. As per the rumour, this number 777888999 is not an ordinary number. It is referred to as death number, which means that, the cell phone will blast as soon as the user receives call from this number. Strange…
There are rumours in media, that 20 people have already lost their lives due to such calls. The viral message on WhatsApp says that –
“Sabhi ko bataiye. Agar 777888999 se koi call aata hai to please is se receive mat karna. Kiyu ki is se receive karte hi phone blast ho rahe h truecaller or similar website me bhi is no ko Don’y Receive Virus naam se block kiya gaya h. Apne family & friends ko bhi bataye..”
The above message is in Hindi, and it is spread in all the languages including, Tamil, Kannanda, Bengali,etc. As per the normal understand in of phone numbers in India, it is always of 10 digits. And the death number is of 9 digits, so it makes people to think with fear about this numbers existence and truth.
Numbers outside India can be of 9 digits, but before that its country code is appended. If we think logically, then this message looks clearly a hoax, and created only to misguide people. We have never heard about any such technology that will make your phone blast on receiving it. If we think technically, there is no way to blast a phone on just receiving calls. The phone battery needs to be heated first, then only it can blast.
Until now, we have been hearing Samsung Note phone blast. And that was due to charging only and not due to call receive.
We should never believe whatever we receive on our phones, as it can be misleading and unwanted message. And if user forwards it then he/she is misleading the full society. So do not spread hoax message like this.
