Millions of rupees transactions noticed in widow’s bank account
KARACHI: Millions of rupees transactions have been detected in a fake bank account made in the name of a widow residing in Karachi, ARY News reported.
Reports of fake bank accounts are surfacing every now and then in different parts of the country, specially in Karachi.
This is at least third fake bank account surfaced in the metropolis made without the knowledge of its owner and millions and billions of rupees have been transacted through them.
After a faluda vendor and a factory labourer, now it has been revealed that millions of rupees have been transacted through a bank account of a widow Sarwat Zehra.
Talking to ARY News, she said when she contacted the bank, after her bank account was closed, they told that it was seized on request of the Federal Board of Revenue. Zehra said she withdraws money using ATM.
She said her account was seized for not paying taxes worth Rs11 million. She said she was the sole bread earner of her family, how she could pay this much tax.
The widow said the bank informed her that she had another bank account to her name, which she knew not.
She has also requested the bank to detach the account from her name and close sales tax registration as it was made fraudulently.
“Some unscrupulous element has misused my CNIC for sales tax registration fraudulently for which I have no information,” she said
