From business to community.com

A woman bombarding her ex-boyfriend with 27,600 calls in a week is fake news. The absurd and outrageous story is just that as there is no truth that an ex-girlfriend went crazy and made over 27,600 calls to her former boyfriend in a week of desperation after their break-up.

Where did this fake news originate? Buzzflare.com published the fake news article reporting that an obsessed ex-girlfriend could not move on after the break up resulting in her calling her ex-boyfriend with 27,600 in a week. You can read the fake news below.

Breakups can be hard, painful and ugly but one thing is for sure, when a person came from a bad breakup, they should move on and accept the fact that the chapter of your life with your partner is over.

Kelly Murphy, 28, of Alberta was arrested for obsessing over her ex-boyfriend, Randy Williams. Aside from calling him about 27,639 times in one week, she also sent him 937 emails, 11,229 text messages, 117 sung messages, and 47 letters in the same period. This is insane!

She used almost eight phones at once to call him on his cell phone, home phone, workplace phone. I wonder how hard it is to work and do these things every day.

However, there is no truth to the above story, according to Hoax Alert. For instance, the image used with the fake news story appears to come from a “people crying in mugshots” article that has been copied all over the internet. Hoax Alert found dozens of copies from as early as 2011.

Additionally, Hoax Alert noted that impossibility behind making 27,600 calls which breaks down to more than 3,857 calls a day and about 160 calls per hour or three per minute.

Here are some examples of people sharing the fake news on social media.
