For today’s installment of “WTF,” we bring you a very unique Valentine’s Day, er, situation.
Reddit user wookiee_balls posted a photo of a valentine that was included in a sealed box of cards, allegedly store-bought by his/her friend. Nothing weird there. But, then the box was opened. The following handwritten note was found inside one of the cards.
Not only did the thought of receiving such a cryptic message in a packaged set of cards creep us out but now the rest of the Reddit world is currently trying to solve this bizarre mystery. Many have called the number to find it disconnected, while others are saying this is a hoax. We tried calling the number and it just kept ringing. But user karmasoul, who is also from Pakistan, called the number and claims to have spoken to Mr. Khan's brother. Karmasoul was informed that Mr. Khan is indeed real, and in communication with his family member. He is being held in prison on drug-related charges. User ArsenalPLC received the same answer when he called.
This isn’t being taken so seriously by other Reddit users. For instance Bettabecheddah suggests this might just be a prank. "What if this whole thing is an elaborate prank to get everyone to call his brother. 'LOL I am the funniest Khan brother, even when in jail.’”
