Samsung has announced that it has received 26 false reports from consumers all around the world claiming that their Galaxy Note 7 has burst into flames since it issued an official recall for the device earlier this month.

It’s reported that out of all of the incidents, Samsung found no fault with the device in 12 cases. In seven, the alleged victim could not be reached via telephone or email and in another seven, the consumer cancelled the report.

Perhaps the most well-known of a false report is the explosion of a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The owner of the vehicle was adamant that his defunct Galaxy Note 7 was the cause of the fire. However, the local fire team were unable to determine if it was.

So there you have it, folks. Don’t believe everything you hear about exploding Galaxy Note 7’s online.
