As you may know, there are a lot of hotels which do not have floor number 13 or even a room number 13 because it’s considered haunted and inauspicious. Similarly, a Bulgarian number has been suspended forever after the company observed a pattern. A pattern where all its owners died. The jinxed phone number is 0888 888 888.
The first owner of the number was the CEO of the issuing company Mobitel himself, Vladimir Grashnov. Reportedly, he died of cancer in 2001. According to Mail Online, his cancer was rumoured to have been caused by a ‘business rival using radioactive poisoning’.
The number was then taken up by a mafia named Konstantin Dimitrov, who was also killed in 2003 by an assassin in the Netherlands, where he had gone to inspect his 500 million-worth drug empire. Reportedly, he was gunned down by Russian mafias who were jealous of him. It’s also said that he had the phone with him when he died.
The third man who took up the number was businessman Konstantin Dishliev, who was killed in 2005 in Bulgaria’s capital Sofia, reportedly outside an Indian restaurant. Mail Online reported that Dishliev was also running a cocaine trafficking operation. The case on his killing is still open.
Ever since 2005, the number has been suspended and whoever calls on it, hears the same message ‘outside network coverage’.
