The campaign was launched last weekend, but caused quite a stir, when it emerged that at least one family had thought for many hours that one of their relatives had died.
The fake death notice looks very convincing and contains all the correct data.
The application is now being modified. People will be notified that the newspaper death notice that they are receiving is a fake.
The text reads as follows: "The incident described in this article didn't really happen and was created as part of a traffic safety campaign. This notice is only intended for the person mentioned in the article."
