Another text message hoax is currently doing the rounds at the moment.
This one warns of trouble in the vicinity of Walmart stores due to gang members supposedly engaging in initiation killings.
If you receive such a message then it will probably say something along the lines of –
“Don’t go to Walmart tonight some sort of gang initiation, they are supposed to kill 3 girls.
Might be fake but better safe than sorry.”
There is, however, no truth to those claims.
Much like the last SMS text hoax, about Christians being executed in Afghanistan, this one also succeeds in not giving out any details which could be used to disprove it.
For instance, there is no day or date in the text message, meaning it can easily be recycled and used at any time.
Also, there is no mention of which Walmart store is supposedly being written about which means such a text could apply to just about anyone who lives near such a retailer.
Finally, a search engine query reveals no news stories about this that claim that it has, or will, happen.
On the contrary, all other reports also out this text as a hoax too.
