A new hoax message that has gone viral on Facebook indicates that you need to disconnect the calls that you receive (from a mobile company), without having to follow the instructions told to you. According the hoax message, it states that it is an attempt by a Pakistani terrorist to hijack your SIM, and make use of it for other purposes.
Users on Facebook have taken the (fake) message so seriously that they are re-posting the message several times by sharing it with their friends and literally spamming the entire network.
The message is a hoax and there is no such call made to any user. The scam message states that it was confirmed by mobile phone companies like Nokia, Motorola and Blackberry (RIM). Well, there isn’t any official word from any of the above mentioned mobile phone providers. It also states that CNN has reported about this on their website. However, there is no such post published by CNN on their website.

This is a fake message and I suggest you to stop re-posting/sharing it with your friends. This isn’t going to help anyone. It’s just causing a nuisance.
It is a good practice to verify such messages before you re-post it on Facebook or Twitter. The best thing to do is to ignore messages like this and remove it from your news feed. People create such hoax messages to see how the message evolves and how far it will spread. Perhaps they wonder whether a hoax posted in one place, will ever come back to them again.
