Another case of a fake bank account emerged in Karachi on Tuesday when the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) served a notice of Rs1.1 billion to an employee of Sindh Health Department.
The woman, who had not been paid her salary for the past two months, was sent a notice for being a tax defaulter after a bank account and a company registered in her name was uncovered.
The woman, a resident of Korangi, said that she was unaware of the existence of the account or the company and claimed that her Computerised National Identity Card (CNIC) and her phone number had been used for this purpose without her knowledge.
Reportedly, the account was created in 2010 and the company was registered later. The account also had transactions in billions.
FIA also summoned the lady and sealed all bank accounts in her name. FIA is also considering sending a notice to the administration of the bank.
Meanwhile, FIA also conducted a raid at Omni Group’s office in Karachi near the hockey stadium.
Previously, a factory worker and a falooda vendor in Karachi were found to have fake bank accounts created in their names.
