KARACHI: A scam email from a fake address created in the name of
Governor State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) is in circulation suggesting
that the recipient has received a big amount from a foreign government.
This was pointed out in a statement of the SBP issued here on Tuesday.
‘This is to inform general public that a scam email from a fake email
address created in the name of Governor State Bank of Pakistan is in
circulation suggesting that the recipient has received a large sum of
money from a foreign government’, the statement said.
The contents of said email, forwarded by some recipients to SBP, it added.
To the benefit of public, SBP clarifies that such email has never been
issued by any person including the Governor in person, his office or
the SBP and that this is an attempt to defraud general public and
defaming and maligning the institution.
Taking legal recourse against such unscrupulous element behind these attempts, SBP has already lodged a complaint with the FIA authorities in Karachi.
