Don’t waste food. Call 1098 [SPAM]

UPDATE: This seems to be another spam according to the message on homepage. My apologies for posting this.

Please DO NOT WASTE Food!
If you have a function/party at your home in Sri Lanka and food gets wasted, don’t hesitate to call 1098 – Child Helpline. They will come and collect the food.

  1. It’s spam once again. There is no such service in India. See this message on
    on their homepage

    “Caution: We understand there is a chain mail circulating that says – one should call up 1098 to pick up left over food after a party etc so that it is not wasted. We are India ‘s only and most widespread Children’s phone emergency outreach service (1098) for children in need of care and protection. We do not pick up food or distribute food. This mail was not initiated by us, kindly do not circulate it. Your cooperation is appreciated.”
