The mobile number 0888 888 888 is no longer in use after the last three users who were allocated it came to premature and rather grisly ends.

The most recent victim who happened to have the number was millionaire drug dealer and real estate broker Konstantin Disheliev, who was killed in a restaurant back in 2005.

The previous owner was one Konstantin Dimitrov, another narcotics kingpin who also met his maker at a restaurant when assassinated by alleged mobsters from Russia in 2003 whilst eating a meal with his girlfriend.

Before these two crims bit the bullet, the precedent was set by mobile phone executive Vladimir Grashnov, who died of cancer in 2001, although this disease was allegedly inflicted upon him by a competitor, according to The Telegraph.

For five years the rather unlucky number has lain dormant, although when you consider the activities of at least two of the victims, it is unsurprising to see that they might possibly be targets for violence.
