Reports of the Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 found in the Bermuda Triangle hoax have been verified as scams. Links promising to show footage of the plane in the Bermuda Triangle as well as other links stating the plane has been found with survivors are all false.
Hoax-Slayer has verified that one rumor about MH370 found in the Bermuda Triangle is completely false. The site warned against the rumor and stated that the footage of a plane crashing in the region is actually a video from the Lion Air plane crash in Bali in 2013.
Despite the lack of information surrounding the plane’s disappearance, false reporting of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 have been circulating throughout social media. Using social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, scammers are luring users into their sites by misleading them with “shocking videos,” of the flight.
The scammers are using the links as tools to gain information from users. Once the user clicks the link, their personal information like phone numbers and email addresses are released to the hacker and can be sold off for profit.
While Facebook said it has removed those harmful links from its site, users should still be cautious of any link confirming the plane has been discovered and should verify the news with reliable news sources.
As of now, there is no current news on the location of the plane. There are over 20 countries involved in the search.
