Karachi, August 07, 2018 (PPI-OT): There are reports that fake telephone calls are being made to public by individuals impersonating as officials of State Bank of Pakistan and seeking personal information like CNIC number, bank account number, passwords, etc. on the pretext of verification of banks account.
