1. Boothworld Industries Number
This is perhaps one of the most disturbing phone numbers out there. Known as Boothworld Industries, this company mentions they will do ‘remodeling’. This at first, seems like some kind of home décor design at first, until more about it seems suspicious. When someone dials (630) 296-7536, they will be alarmed by what is said. This “company” entirely focuses on the life of their “members”.
When someone calls this phone number, their number is immediately logged and a recording is heard. Next, the recording states that a representative will get back to them. The display reads PRIVATE NUMBER, and the area code identified comes up as being from Illinois.
There are a number of people, who didn’t reach the recording, but instead were greeting by a live representative. Her voice is cold and calm, yet she sounds polite as well. The next step, is her asking for your full name. When providing false information, the representative immediately hangs up during the call.
In one instance, a man provided his former girlfriends name instead. It seemed to work, for their database or whatnot. The representative on the phone, thanked the man welcoming him—as he achieved membership status. The representative then scheduled a time and date. The man didn’t think anything about this at first, until the time and date he gave came around.
He received a phone call and the same representative responded to him. On the phone, he listened to the voice of his former girlfriend, screaming and begging for help. It seemed she was being tortured. Before her voice abruptly stopped, a loud thud could be heard followed by an eerie silence.
3. Sadako’s Number
There is a number located in Japan, which has been deemed rather sinister. The number is 09044444444. Those located outside of the country simply cannot call, unless they use the country code first.
In the Japanese culture, the number four seems to sound a lot like the word for death. This only further fuels the fright for this number. From what is known, when someone calls this number, they will hear a creepy sounding noise. After this, the person supposedly will die in some sort of freak accident. This is reminiscent of the horror film franchise The Ring.
4. Susie’s Dying Number
This number is one that dates back well into the 1970’s in the United Kingdom. Back then, there were paid phone booths everywhere in the streets. A rather strange number could be called from the booths. The number was free to dial and when answered, a woman would reply saying ‘Help me, help me Susie’s dying’. She had a monotonous tone to her voice, as she continued to repeat this statement over and over again. Those who grew up then are now adults and they recall the number being something like 20202020.
5. Bulgaria Number
This Bulgarian number when dialed (0888-888-888) when used with a mobile phone will cause someone to die a horrible death. The origination of this, started back when a man first dialed the number and immediately was diagnosed thereafter, with an aggressive form of brain cancer. Another man died after dialing the number, by being shot to death in the middle of the road.
The company behind the number Mobitel got word about these incidents and no longer wanted anything to do with the 0888-888-888 number. Anyone who dials the number now, will be informed by a prerecorded message saying “Outside network coverage.”
6. Red Numbers
Known as red numbers, these numbers can’t really be called per say. However, be careful of what colors are on your phone. These numbers attempting to be answered may cause the unusual to happen. Someone answering in the country of Pakistan, are the most vulnerable. Simply believed to be cursed numbers or death calls, these numbers will appear on someones phone in the color red.
