The smell of death

The smell of death

Police in the UAE have dismissed claims of an SMS that says vendors are selling a perfume which has already killed 18 people.


December 23, 2008 2:00 by

The following SMS was reportedly doing the rounds in the UAE:

“Some vendors, standing at traffic lights or walking through malls, offer to sell you perfumes. That perfume contains a fatal gas. In just four days, 18 people have been killed and 35 hospitalized and admitted to intensive care units. Send this message out to as many as you can and help save a soul.”

The SMS has caught the attention of the Dubai and the Abu Dhabi police, and both have rubbished them. They attributed the rumors to some illegal business interests.

While the SMS does sound ridiculous, it can scare some people. Have you received any similar messages? Do you treat them as spam or believe them? And with more such SMS’s doing the rounds, will a ‘real’ message also be considered spam?
