The “Original” Swiss Bank statement to India

The “Original” Swiss Bank statement to India

Public Awareness, Social Media
There are so many false features in the letter that it's a miracle anyone actually believed it.  Firstly, the official address to India is "Government of India" and not "Indian Government." Secondly, the amount in the bank accounts are mentioned in INR, that too using the Indian denomination system whereas the Swiss bank operates in US dollars, Euro pound, and GB pound, not INR. The telephone code of the bank mentioned in the address section of the letter is 0044, which is actually the code for the U.K. The international code of Switzerland is 0041. Also, the sign of the bank manager is on the right side end of the letter, where as the European system of communication and correspondence uses the left corner of the page for signatures.

Pranksters at 4chan spread around a fake Apple press release claiming iPhones could now be recharged in a household microwave. The phony update was called “Wave”, and it promised to charge iPhones fully after one minute of microwaving. The hoax was taken seriously by enough people for the Los Angeles Police Department to issue a warning. 'This #Wave capability is a #hoax. Don't be fooled into microwaving your #iPhone 6,' LAPD Communications tweeted. The Los Angeles Fire Department have also issued warnings on radio stations, according to Nine News. 'We were alarmed at this notion, because of course any metal inside of a microwave oven can lead to a fire and potentially an explosion,' spokesman Brian Humphrey said.

This is the exact message getting viral on social media and Whatsapp Groups. People wants a phone having good features by spending less. That's why they are sharing this type of message. Before going in details, just clarifying that this message is 100% FAKE.  Now see the below points: Amazon always sell products on their own website, which is http://www.amazon.in (For India). But the saying website is http://amazon.mobile-flashsale.com. They have used sub-domain amazon with their website mobile-flashsale.com. Amazon was launched in 1994 in USA and in 2013 in India. So it cannot be a golden Anniversary offer. Golden Anniversary means 50 Years. If Amazon have to give any offer, they will do it directly on their won website with some competition, games or lucky draw. Above
