I received the following forward from my brother;s son , a couple of days ago. I thought it was just routine.
Then I have received this from my friend and phone calls from some of my acquaintances.
I am reproducing the message for it is better to look foolish than to be sorry.
This happened in Mumbai…….
I cannot stop myself from sharing this with all of you. It all started when I received a call from someone claiming that he was from my mobile service provider and he asked me to shutdown my phone for 2 hours for 3G update to take place. As I was rushing for a meeting, I did not question and shutdown my cell phone.
After 45 minutes I felt very suspicious since the caller did not even introduce his name. I quickly turned on my cell phone and I saw several missed calls from my family members and the others were from the number that had called me earlier – 3954380.
I called my parents and I was shocked that they sounded very worried asking me whether I am safe. My parents told me that they had received a call from someone claiming that they had me with them and asking for money to let me free. The call was so real and my parents even heard ‘my voice’ crying out loud asking for help. My parent was at the bank waiting for next call to proceed for money transfer. I told my parents that I am safe and asked them to lodge a police report.
Right after that I received another call from the guy asking me to shut down my cell phone for another 1 hour which I refused to do and hung up. They keep calling my cell phone until the battery had run down. I myself lodged a police report and I was informed by the officer that there were many such scams reported. MOST of the cases reported that the victim had already transferred the money! And it is impossible to get back the money. Be careful as this kind of scam might happen to any of us!!! Those guys are so professional and very convincing during calls. If you are asked to shut down your cell phone for updates by the service provider, ASK AROUND!
Your family or friends might receive the same call.
Talking on Cell phone while driving is very dangerous.
It was responsible for the death of 43 boys in Bangladesh.
Time people do not treat the Law on Mobile use seriously and think a minute of their loved ones and what if they are lose a limb or lapse into coma.
I know of the brother of my colleague who went into coma, because he did not notice a water tanker rushing towards him in Cnennai.He has to small children.
He was in coma for six years before he died.
The family went through hell.
One of the most tragic incidents in our country’s recent history took place on July 11 when 43 school students were killed in a road accident at Mirsarai, Chittagong on their way home from a football match. We lost so many blooming buds of the nation that it’s almost comparable with the loss of valuable lives during the BDR mutiny.
It has been reported that the truck was driven by the helper instead of the driver and he was talking on the cell phone at the time of the incident. This is how Cell phones become killers. A criminal may kill one or two persons at a time with a gun, but this incident shows that a Cell phone can kill many at a time. So, time has come to take another look at the situation and be alert.’
