Scary Chain-SMS

A viral SMS from a ghost is currently infecting the minds and mobile phones of Danish pre-teenagers

The SMS contains a message saying: "Hello, I am Cordelia. I died in a fire 10 years ago. Unless you send this message on to 10 other people, I will come to your room tonight and stare at you. I look like a three-year old - without a face. I will show up every night. You have seven minutes to send this".

No product is being advertised here, just good-old-fashioned chain-letter spam in a new medium. We bet on a Halloween Buzz thing.
