      Beware of calls pretending to be from PTA

      I got a call from a Mobilink number 03022654746 from someone pretending to be from PTA. In a commanding voice he started scolding me saying why haven't I registered my phone number with PTA. Note that both my phone number and mobile are PTA registered/approved. He said he is going to send me a code and I need to tell that to him to get my number registered, I refused and he threatened me with blocking my number within an hour. I hung up. The verification code he sent me via text was for the app IMO to get it registered on my number. God knows for what purpose or activities they plan to use these apps registered on our numbers.So guys beware of such calls, know beforehand whether your number and mobile phone are registered by checking with your network/DIRBS etc.

      Thanks for informing us.

      You should definitely send this number and any other details to PTA and FIA Cyber Crime as well so they can look into it.

      To all those people complaining about the verification code instead of money or cash or something.
      They use this code to register your whatsapp number on their cellphone just when they enter it in their cellphone. (Since now, WhatsApp only works on one cell)
      It, then, can be used for malicious activities, I reckon.

      Similar calls are also made with people claiming working in intelligence agencies (ISI, Pak Army etc) and demand you to tell them your bank account details etc. It's also a sham and report such callers ASAP.
