Telecommunication Regulatory Commission of Sri Lanka loves SMS. In the pre-election period it requested operators to accommodate a ‘New Year Greeting’ from the President, who apparently was a candidate. Now it warns the users about a false spam SMS. If you have received it don’t worry. Calls from those numbers do not harm your brain or kill you, assures Director General of the Telecom Regulatory Commission (TRC) Anusha Pelpita. According to Daily Mirror online Mr. Pelpita has realised the prank after talking to the operators.
The SMS said “Dont attend to calls from 7888308001, 9316048121, 9876266211, 9888854137, 9876715587. These numbers come in red colors. U may get brain hemrage due to high frequency. 27 persons died just recieving the call”
