ISPR Issues Warning About Fake Army Officials Scamming the Public

Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) has issued a statement warning the public about army impersonators seeking private information. ISPR alerted the public to not take any calls or messages from unknown numbers claiming to be representatives of army.

There were reports circulating that army is calling people seeking their private information. ISPR took notice of these and released a statement denying all such calls made by Pakistan army. The statement reads;
