Indians usually have a popular belief of sending money back to India to their native places where their parents usually invest in real estate. I have a 3 brothers & 3 sisters who do the same as I mentioned.
Means that these facts with those numbers have been floating around the internet for at least 7 years and hence they might not be true anymore. I remember reading this very same thing in some article / magazine when I was relatively younger (maybe 7 years ago. I don't remember exactly).
And about point #2, I don't think its a fact anymore. Isn't it Gmail now? If it is, then it proves that either this was made up or is old as my grandma.
