What is some urban legend in your country? Question

wikipedia.org: "An urban legend, popular legend, urban myth, urban tale, or contemporary legend is a form of modern folklore consisting of usually fictional stories, often with macabre elements, deeply rooted in local popular culture. These legends can be used for entertainment purposes, as well as for semi-serious explanations for random events such as disappearances and strange objects."  study


----------------------------------------------------------------------


In China, a silly urban legend about the 「城市一卡通」/"City Pass card" What a Face :

- in 200x, many talked about this:  "hey I just found out that, if you try to heat up your 「城市一卡通」/"City Pass card" with a microwave oven, its $$$ balance value can be recharged!  Use just the low heat up level and do not heat it up for more than 25 seconds." Arrow

=> ....and the result was so obvious, that, all the heated up 「城市一卡通」/"City Pass card" were destroyed.
Later on, the official 「城市一卡通」/"City Pass card" provider made an announcement: "Every 「城市一卡通」/"City Pass card" is specially made and has its own key that even we are not able to hack/crack once it is firstly used.  There is no way to recharge the card $$$ balance value besides using the official recharge machines.  Do not believe in that silly microwave oven rechargeable urban legend, it can only destroy your 「城市一卡通」/"City Pass card"."

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

In China, a scary urban legend about the 「猫脸老太太」/"Old lady with a cat face" scared

- in 199x, many talked about this:  "hey, you know that old lady who died dead on her way home, and a black cat crossed over her dead body, then she resurrected with a half-human-half-cat face.  Her body could be found and since then, she began to haunt other people and the most worst thing was that, she loved to hunt children for her food." pale

=>.....and the result was still a mystery, that, some even said the China Government once sent out an army to try to search for her, and actually found her and shot her to death (died again dead dead ).....well, nothing was really proved/confirmed in those times, and schools were constantly warning kids to be more cautious again this 「猫脸老太太」/"Old lady with a cat face"....
=> ......in 2016, a film was made in China to try to "promote" this 「猫脸老太太」/"Old lady with a cat face" urban legend cyclops :

Black Volga (Polish: czarna wołga) refers to an urban legend widespread in Poland, Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, and Mongolia, mainly in the 1960s and 1970s. It was about a black Volga limousine that was allegedly used to abduct people, especially children. The car is described as having white wheel rims, white curtains or other white elements.

@skhsato123:
That "Layla or Lilith the female gene" you said can also be made to be a movie! scared
And "toilet and mirror" seems to be a common items in urban legend of many countries too! yes
And tombs/mummies/pharoh are already the very well-known Egypt urban legend worldwide. Wink

@kimczi:
Thank you for sharing this phantom car that actually abducts people, I haven't known about this one until now!
