Biometric Verification of Bank Accounts – Rumours and Scams

Dear Valued Customers,

Please note following important points regarding Biometric Verification of your accounts:

– Rumors are being spread by some elements/mischief mongers that after June 30, 2019, being the deadline for biometric verification of bank accounts, the unverified bank accounts will be seized. We would like to inform you that, no biometrically unverified bank account will be seized. However, some temporary transaction restrictions/blockage may be imposed on those unverified accounts till the biometric verification takes place.

– As a new scam, some unidentified elements/fraudsters have been approaching bank account holders through emails/messages informing them that due to some system error, their bank account verification process was unsuccessful; therefore, these account holders are required to visit sites like http://www.bvspakistan.com for verification.

– It is feared that if a customer visits the stated website(s), the customers may be asked to share their personal information, which may then be used by the scammer, for fraudulent activities. There is a possibility that the scammers may be using other websites in addition to the one mentioned here.

Please do not fall for any false email/Call/SMS and do not provide your personal information to any website. For any query regarding your verification, please call 021-111-113-442
