RAWALPINDI: The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) cautioned the general public on Monday to be aware of telephone calls from those impersonating as army officials.
“There are reports of fake telephone calls being made to the general public by individuals impersonating as Pakistan armed forces officials,” stated the military’s media wing in a press release.
“The impersonators try to seek personal information like Computerised National Identity Card (CNIC) details and bank accounts on the pretext of census verification,” the ISPR said. “Please be aware that no such calls are being made from Pakistan armed forces,” the press release added.
The military’s media wing further said, “The public is requested not to respond to such calls, and immediately report the same on our emergency helpline UAN 1135 and 1125.”
