LAHORE: Pakistan Army’s public relations wing Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) on Sunday issued a ‘public awareness information’, cautioning against an imposter calling cell phone users as an army officer and seeking private financial information.

The statement comes a day after a blog on Daily Times website reported one such incident that took place with a DT staffer. Calls from customised phone numbers were made to the private cell phone number of Farhan Janjua, the digital editor at DT, to intimidate and extract identity and bank account information.

‘There are reports of fake telephone calls being made to general public by individuals impersonating as Pakistan Armed Forces officials. The impersonators try to seek personal details like CNIC, bank accounts etc, on the pretext of CENSUS verification etc. Please be aware that no such calls are being made from Pakistan Armed Forces. Public is requested not to respond to such calls, and immediately report the same on our emergency help line UAN 1135 and 1125,’ the advisory reads.
