Bermuda Triangle: Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 Not Found in Bermuda Triangle

There has been Facebook hoax of the missing Malaysia Airlines flight 370 and its passengers turning up in the Bermuda Triangle. A picture that shows video of of missing Malaysian MH370 plane found in Bermuda Triangle is actually a scam.

It appears to be the stuff of which conspiracy theories are made. Yet it continues to haunt the informational folds of cyberspace. We can well imagine the gravity of the situation where so many passengers disappeared into the ocean off the coast of Thailand. 

Yet that did not stop Internet pranksters from creating fake photos and posting them on various websites. Hoaxes, scams and trickery continue to be a part of the Net environment. 

Even a Malaysian politician mentioned the fact that the Bermuda Triangle may have had something to do with the mysterious disappearance of the plane. He apologized and took back his words later on. 

But the question remains…why have no traces of Flight 370 been found in the sea? Well, it may take months and even years before any remains of the passengers and plane are salvaged from the bottom of the sea.

The Bermuda Triangle became the subject of conjecture and speculation in the 50s. A journalist wrote an article calling it a sinkhole in the ocean for airplanes and ships. 

But more realistic commentators pointed out that on average the same number of casualties occurred in the Bermuda Triangle region as the rest of the areas surrounding it. 

However, like the myths about the Illuminati and such weird acts as Holocaust denial, the Bermuda Triangle mystery too took on a life of its own. 

Now this photograph which is doing the rounds of the Internet shows the Malaysia Airlines flight in the sea and the passengers disembarking from it. But it is a Facebook hoax actually.

Yet it is clear as the light of day that the airplane in the photograph has been taken from another context and superimposed on to the image. 

The Hoax Slayer website has exposed this scam. It states, "The claims in the message are untrue and there is no video footage. The message is a callous scam designed to trick Facebook users into promoting the bogus material via Facebook shares and participating in bogus online surveys. The scam message uses a photograph depicting a plane crash near Bali in April 2013."

The bogus site that started this scam even tricks Facebook users into endorsing and sharing this photo with their near and dear ones. It pretends to be a survey and gets the approval of many naïve people who can’t tell the difference between truth and falsehood. 

It just goes to show the level of uncouth barbarity that these con artists are willing to show in their fraudulent schemes to profit from the innocence of a gullible public. 

 

According to the Mirror, "So the latest information suggests flight MH370 turned back from its flight path and went in as westerly direction. This means two huge new search areas have been set out - one heading towards Europe from Turkmenistan. The second stretches from Indonesia into the southern Indian Ocean."
