Bad joke SMS announces earthquake in Malaysia

Many people in Malaysia received an April Fool's Day SMS message about an impending earthquake yesterday evening but did not find it funny.
The SMS read: “Earthquake is expected to hit Seremban in the next one hour or so, this will be a major one, pray to God to keep us safe, this message is retrieved from satellite television news.” Some recipients said they thought it was for real until they scrolled through and saw a subsequent message which read: “Congratulation you the last minute fool on April 1.”
Police said the prankster could face action if someone lodged a report.
