This is news going around Ireland like crazy at the moment, and the moment I heard it I thought Fayyaad… I know he’d never does prank calls (that I know of) but the puns, the silly jokes 😛
People all over the contry are getting an SMS saying call for an urgent message and ask for a Mr. G. Raffe, Mrs. C. Lion, Rory Lyons or Anna Conda at 01 XXXXXXX. It escalated into over 100,000 hoax calls in the last two weeks to our local Dublin Zoo – see what messing can do, hmmm learn something today? 😀
Zoo staff quote; It might be kind of funny the first few times but we have lost our sense of humor now with calls coming in at a rate of about 13 a minute. The system is pretty much choked
They have even been forced to stick an this at the beginning of their automated answering machine which says
Welcome to Dublin Zoo. If you are calling for a Mr. G. Raffe, Mrs. C. Lion, Rory Lyons or Anna Conda etc you have been made part of a hoax….
