    Default Am i dead? Confirme your death via phone

    http://www.info.gov.za/speeches/2009/09032315451001.htm

    Clients are advised to use either the department's website or SMS to verify their alive or deceased status.

    * To use the website, people should visit http://www.dha.gov.za and click on check your status (at the top left corner of the homepage) and choose ID status verification (alive/deceased). They will be required to enter their ID number and press the verify button to see if they are "alive" or "deceased."

    * Using the SMS service, clients can type in the letter L, followed by the ID number to 32551. A reply SMS will then be sent back confirming status as either "alive or "deceased." Each SMS costs R1 charged by the client's network service provider.
    the best is, it costs you call charges to hear that you are dead.

    i wonder if they have some totally apathetic women in the callcenter saying: I'm sorry to inform you sir, but you're dead"

    There's something almost... Lovecraftian about this. To be honest, I'm not sure if it's hilarious or frightening.

    Sounds like a good way to avoid telemarketers.

    Man, I love living in South Africa. I'm guessing that the gov decided that there was a big enough market of people who weren't sure whether they're dead or not. Zombie time.

    Or there was enough of a problem with reletives claiming that you are dead so they can claim your estate (leaving you pennyless)

    You should send a message telling them that you died yesterday, and that you'll go there to confirm it if they wanted.
