Argentina: A 12-year-old girl reportedly committed suicide in Argentina which is
being linked to the Momo challenge.

Momo is a social media account on WhatsApp, Facebook and YouTube that uses the
image of an artwork invoking horror.

The artwork, called Mother Bird by Link Factory, induces curiosity among children,
challenging them to communicate with an unknown number, The Sun reported.

The creepy account appears to be connected to three numbers in Japan, Mexico, and
Columbia. If a user refuses to follow the game’s orders, Momo threatens them with
violent images.

As per cybercrime experts, the Momo challenge is a hoax aimed at stealing
information.
