If you are too addicted to the internet, you must remember one rule i.e. “Don’t trust anything and everything you see”. These days, a lot of crap is being spread on the internet and the only intention is to spread panic among the users. Chain messages have become very popular; everyday, we come across such forwards which not only waste our time but also create doubts in our minds.
Recently, another message is going viral on WhatsApp and Facebook, which says that if you get a call from “777888999”, your phone will blast and you’ll get killed.

And Facebook too…
One more message that you might receive is, “A lady will speak to the call receiver and tell that it’s the last call for him. Please pass this message to others and don’t neglect. Pass it to your friends and family”.
Truth behind this message!
Let us clarify one thing that it is just a HOAX and nothing else. After verifying everything, experts have said that this is a 9 digit number and won’t do any harm. The mobile number in India is 10 digits and so, “777888999” can’t even be counted among mobile numbers.
There’s no way in which a random number can inflict your phone with virus or set it on fire. Some people doubt that since it’s 9 digits, it might be an international number, but no, this is not the case because when you receive an International call, the pre-fixed country code will always be displayed along with the number.
So finally, after doing a reality check, it was proved that the message was fictitious. Pawan Duggal, a cyber expert said, “New technologies are being developed all the time but techniques through which a call can set a mobile phone on fire have not hit the mainstream.”
It’s a request to stop believing in such messages because they make no sense at all. As stated by the cyber expert, there’s no technology which can explode your phone.
Next time when you receive a message like this, DELETE it right away. Instead of forwarding it blindly, verify it and inform others accordingly.
