You may have received a text message/email or seen a Facebook or Twitter post yesterday about a killer number “09141” which is apparently supposed to strike people dead once they pick a call from it. According to the rumor, it killed 7 people (it never increased from 7) yesterday and has some other killer counterpart numbers which assist it in it’s duties.
This sounds like a rumor passed around a few years ago about a different number. I know I might hurt some feelings saying this but personally, I believe this is just a rumor with no iota of truth in it because I only heard but never saw proof of the deaths and personally, I’m a logical person, and it’d take more than hearsay to get me to believe anything.
On a lighter note though, this could be a great viral marketing strategy for any company willing to spread buzz about it’s products, e.g the Mirinda Alien (Orange Men in Lagos) saga so many years back.
That’s all for now but please I would love to know the techniques numbers use in killing and also if anyone has proof of the “murders”, I stand to be corrected, in the meantime though, if you per chance receive a call from the “killer number” and decide to pick, please don’t blame me 🙂
